Our home

Our home is called Squirrel's Cove, due to the abundance of squirrel's in the oak trees surrounding the cottage. It is a thatch roof property with a stream running through and a great view of the Simonsberg mountains. It is a 2 hectare property, fully enclosed with security fencing and steel gates with ample parking. There are 2 enclosed bedrooms on the ground floor, 1 of which is ensuite & the 3rd is an open plan bedroom, overlooking the lounge area. This is where you will find the 2nd bathroom which has a spa bath. There is a fully equipped kitchen. The lounge, 8 seater Dinigroom and Kitchen are open plan. There is also an open plan study area on the top level which has high speed internet availability. Car optional. As the cottage is elevated with a wooden deck and steps leading to the garden area, we do not recommend it for very small children.

Who we are

  1. We are Whitey and Salome and work for Gestetner & Vodacom respectively. We have been married for 31 years and have 2 married sons and a grandson. We love to travel when we can get away and have been to Thailand on numerous occasions, as we love the country and it's friendly people. We have also been to London, Greece and the USA,but have never done a home exchange before. We would be keen to try it out, as we would love to take our eldest son & daughter-in law with us and if the accommodation permits, we would love to have our youngest son and his wife join us from the UK to have a family holiday, as we have not been able to do so for a few years.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We are situated on the wine route between Stellenbosch and Franschoek with well known wine farms such as Tokara, Zorgvliet, Delaire and Boschendal on the same road. We have 3 guest houses as our neighbours, with the Hillcrest Berry Orchard being one of these. Here you can have scrumptious meals and buy fresh berries etc. Stellenbosch is an old Cape Dutch town with many interesting buildings dating back to the 16th century with loads of fine dining places. It is roughly 30 km's from the airport, 60km from Cape Town and 20km's from the Strand.(The beach)
