Ilza's cottage was the perfect place for us to spend five days in George. It was spotless, had everything we needed, including the most comfortable bed and the biggest, softest towels one can hope for! The layout of the space was well-designed and provided plenty of room for two people. The location allowed us to live in a quiet residential area, yet walk to the Botanical Garden and other sites, great restaurants, banks, post office, shopping, and even the public library. Ilza met us, helped with our luggage, oriented us to our home, and even left us a bottle of wine! She kept in touch with us before and during our visit. We certainly recommend Ilza's cottage when you visit George.

Ilza was great. So informative, she told us everything we needed to know not only bin George but beyond as well. Made us very welcome. The cottages are very cute, everything you need. The chocolates left to welcome us was a nice gesture. Thanks again.

We really enjoyed staying at Ilza's place. It's an incredibly well equipped cottage with a full kitchen, lovely patio, good wifi and all the amenities you could need. We stayed overnight in George to take the Outinequa Power Van. This comes highly recommended, as do the beautiful botanic gardens just a minute up the road.

Ilza was a very friendly and helpful host. We enjoyed our stay in the beautiful clean cottage next to her house. The neighborhood is quit good. We stayed one night longer than expected. Thanks to Ilza and family

Great host, great room and would definitely recommend this stay! The botanical gardens were beautiful and the apartment was like a home away from home

Your hosts are Ilza and Jannie Koegelenberg.
After working (and travelling) in the USA and UK we decided to return to South Africa and settled in George. Ilza is an accountant and in charge of the day to day running of the cottages. It does provide quite a nice change from preparing financial statements and submitting tax returns.
Jannie is a civil engineer and also runs the maintenance as well as the garden and landscaping part of the guesthouse. Having grown up on a farm there is nothing he can't fix.
