This property is ideally situated, right in the middle of a winery and close by to all other wineries. The outlook is just beautiful. We only had one small problem with the airconditioning unit, which will be fixed as we mentioned it to the owners of the property. Apart from airconditioning unit fault we had everything we needed. Everything else well maintained and clean. The owners go out of their way to make you feel at home.

Wonderful stay in the country side, peace & quiet, air conditioning, comfortable beds, great shower, outdoor setting and cooking. Could not ask for anything else. Lisa was wonderful, advising us on getting the bus to the concert. We will make this at least an annual long week end.

Large studio with pleasant rural views

One of six units set apart from the farm residence on a slope facing northeast. The kitchen is basic but well equipped and there is a barbecue on the unit patio. Clean and spacious but perhaps a little old fashioned. Owners friendly and helpful without being obtrusive.
