“We've been here ten and a half years now but I still get goose-bumps every time I see the moon hanging over it,” Gillian confides in me as we stare out over the smooth expanse of False Bay. I challenge you to find a better view of the bay than this one, and unsurprisingly most of the rooms at Moonglow take full advantage - even the ones that don't still get their own private seating areas round at the front. With Thandi the dog staring lovingly at the succulent blueberry muffin that was supplied with my tea, I could have happily stayed for an eternity ensconced on the sofa of the bar-lounge… but an ever-enthusiastic Gillian (who shared she would attempt her basic French knowledge for French speaking guests) was keen to show me more and I had a job to do. Throughout this house you'll find original artworks everywhere, including a stunning leopard print and four-foot-high figurines hewn from solid granite. If it catches Gillian's eye she's got to have it. Vibrant oil paintings add a splash of colour to creamy rooms, all drenched in sunlight from large picture windows or glass doors. Beds and tables have been individually designed, and a multitude of mohair blankets and the finest quality linens have had Gillian's hand-embroiderers busy detailing them with intricate dragonflies and bumblebees “... just so the colours match.” Moonglow shines.
