Jimmy: January 2018

“What a fantastic stay!! We didn’t quite know what to expect from this property, but we were very pleasantly surprised. The house is large with all the amenities you’ll ever need, and the location is unbeatable! It shares a security gate with the most exclusive hotel in Franschoek, but the road quickly turns off onto its own property. A few hundred metres later you see a stunning white house with a the most beautiful mountainous backdrop. We were greeted by Paulina who showed us around and introduced us to the domestic help, who live on site in a separate back area of the house. It wasn’t intrusive in any way, but it did mean people were on site to clean and provide any advice required. The rooms are large and well equipped with good bathrooms. Beds comfy. The place is very clean! The best bit was the pool outside where to spent many hours soaking in the view with a glass of local wine. The house is a 5 min drive from town, and close to all the local wine estates. The wine team also goes from town, which is close. Town is fantastic and has supermarkets and many good restaurants. There are three dogs who live towards the back of the property. We let them out and played with them, but if you dont like dogs then you wouldn’t even know they’re there. I would thoroughly recommend this property to anyone who is travelling in a group, as it makes more economic sense when you have 4+ people. It was such a lovely authentic stay! FYI my partner and I spend 10 months a year travelling and staying in Airbnbs very regularly, so we understand what makes a good house and host. Paulinas place does everything right! Thank you!”
