Our home

Our home is an upmarket, double-storey house high on the slopes of Stellenbosch Mountain, a couple of hundred metres from vineyards. From our home you have a view over the valley and mountains, stretching all the way to Table Mountain in the distance. The interior of the house has high quality finishes and all the modern conveniences, with two large lounges, a dining area, a reading area, a large modern kitchen, two outside verandahs, a lush garden and large pool, underfloor heating and two indoor fireplaces. There are two TV's (including a 52-inch plasma screen), with DVD players and surround sound. There is a full time housekeeper who will clean, wash and iron at no additional cost. She will also baby-sit on request. If required, we can also arrange for a car. Our area, Brandwacht is a tranquil and quiet suburb of Stellenbosch. However, it is only a 5 minute drive from Brandwacht to the centre of Stellenbosch. We are a couple of minutes walk from a mountain/forest walking and biking trail.
