This small freestanding room, built more than 150 years ago as a storeroom; today used as a quaint guest room in the garden. It is not officially on the books of my guest house - we use it for friends and family, although I do have a few guests who prefer it because of the garden setting (it looks onto the swimming pool and fruit trees.) En suite with shower and heated towel rail. Double bed. There is a coffee/tea making facility and a small bar fridge. Laptop safe. (No space for lots of luggage + therefore maybe not that suitable for long stays) Free WIFI in room.
Because our private entrance in Smith Street is closer to our little garden room, I give guests a remote to that gate and they park in front of Desmond's boat next to the garage.
Interaction with guests
We enjoy interacting with our guests. Fairview Homestead is a 5 bedroom guest house in B&B style - that means we, the owners, live on the premises. We are led by our guest re. interaction -some guests request dinner at the family table ; others require a more private experience.
Other things to note
PLEASE DO NOT BOOK THIS ROOM IF YOU ARE TWO PEOPLE TRAVELING TOGETHER AS IT IS RESERVED FOR SINGLE OCCUPANCY ONLY.
The only rules I can think of are : no smoking inside ; no non-paying guests in the bedrooms longer than 10 minutes; no cigarette buds in the garden, no unsupervised children in the swimming pool, clean the kitchen, be nice to the hosts...
That was said 'tongue in cheek' ! We have had paying guests in our house for more than 20 years and I've never had to pin down rules, so I do not think I am going to start now.

We bought Fairview in 1994 -the restoration and upkeep has been an ongoing labour of love. Desmond and I love traveling and hiking – apart from the numerous South African hiking trails, we have walked the Camino to Santiago across Portugal,Spain and France. It does not matter where our annual holidays are – there will always be at least one hike fitted in and one garden on the ‘must see’ list.
