Make no mistake: this is the place to experience genuine Afrikaner hospitality. My hosts, Johan and Jo-Anne, welcomed me with a lovely chat, piping hot espresso coffee and a delectable spread of goodies on the sun-drenched front stoep before taking great delight in guiding me through the house. I was instantly charmed by their passion for the property, and the space itself, which was refined, generous and thoroughly magnificent... very much like its hosts. Every single artwork is original South African. Furniture is custom-made from blackwood and beautifully upholstered. The garden is an anthology of yellowwood trees, clivias, cycads so rare they’re micro-chipped, and includes a lush fernery oasis and even a resident chameleon! Behind the house, there is a solar-heated plunge pool with its huge braai and breakfast table. Did I say breakfast? Expect a Boer breakfast, not a puny full English version. Dinner is equally extravagant... perhaps eland fillet, or apricot-basted snoek with grape jam. Sunlight streams into the two large suites, Chardonnay and Pinotage, the latter swathed in blood-red furnishings, the former in softer blue and gold. Both are utterly luxurious with bespoke velvet couches, the best crystal glasses, gas and electric oven, a dishwasher secreted behind smart mahogany cupboards, vast beds and silk duvets. With outstanding attention to detail, every comfort is provided. Shiraz, a double/twin room, is for those who require a little less space than the suites - although if you include the private patio and braai there’s actually not much difference!
