Pretty and quiet
We loved this little old village, kids were skating and running around after dark, always a good indication of a place's safety, in my opinion. A nice selection of eateries and the sunset market on the last Friday of every month makes it a good base from which to explore the Overstrand or just enjoy Stanford.

Stanford Feb 2015
Stanford is a good base from which to explore the Overberg. It has a pleasant walking trail and the river cruise is well worth while. We found that dining out, especially in the evenings was a challenge if you don't want pizza. Stanford could do with more options in this regard.

Stanford
Stanford is the place to go for architecture, history, scenic beauty and old world charm. It also offers a sandy route for softroaders in the Cape Nature reserve.

Stanford Charm
A village that invites one to 'take a walk'. A little gem. One hopes it is able to retain its charm, and not over-developed by zealous agents and large mansions. Will certainly be visiting again, and absorbing the unique appeal that Stanford offers.

A friendly quaint small town
Stanford welcomes you in every sense. The people are friendly and town is a treat to spend time in. Most places are within walking distance.

Stanford a place to visit
Stanford is like a secret. The more you go there the more you discover. Peaceful and friendly, fresh food markets, fabulous restaurants. Marianna's (make sure you book) madras kitchen and a few others. Birds and the river are a real treat. Swim, canoe or go on the African queen. It also seems to be a sought after wedding destination.

A glorious weekend in Stanford
We wanted somewhere quiet, relaxing and beautiful to spend our 34th wedding anniversary. I found Goose Cottage on Safarinow.com and made a booking. We just loved Stanford. We went for beautiful walks to the river and through the suburbs and town centre. We enjoyed the locals' home made fare which we purchased at the Saturday market and had snack lunches at a very quaint restaurant run my two very friendly ladies. We enjoyed great weather, our accommodation was more than what we hoped for and we had beautiful views of the mountains from the stoep of the cottage. An added blessing was the...

Quiet Escape
Stanford was such a lovely and quiet village. I could easily have spent a few more nights enjoying the sights and relaxing by the river. It's like stepping back in history when you walk through the village. What a welcome return to a simpler way of life on my long weekend!

Stanford
Stanford....a beautiful village on the Klein River. Surrounded by mountains and a short drive to the Whales in Hermanus or Die Kelders....Stanford is a place to live or just recapture your breath....great coffee, food, cheese and wines. Stanford is my place.

Stanford - a Village to make your soul sing.
The peaceful village of Stanford, tucked into a quiet bend on the Klein River, lies conveniently close to the whale capital, Hermanus and the shark capital, Gansbaai.Stanford has a unique character all of its own, untouched by the bustle of the nearby towns. A slow and gentle pace welcomes the visitor to the dusty roads, the Village Green, the antique shops, the country markets, pubs, wineries, the microbrewery and the restaurants. Stanford's a place to catch up with yourself and those you love; to read or chat or dream at the fireside or while walking along the wandelpad. It's a place to padd...

Stanford village
We loved Stanford for its tranquility and beauty surrounded by the Overberg mountains. Its an expensive little place and its townfolk are generally unfriendly. We found one place, Serendipity, an eatery in the town where we were made to feel welcome and would love to return there again. Accommondation is abundant in the village and the walks are wonderful.

A great place to escape to
Stanford is a charming village, but don't rely on the local ATM to supply you with cash - fortunately the locals are used to this problem and will go out of their way to accommodate you.

A together little town
A great little town with beautiful character and historical buildings. Lovely architecture. The antique shops creates that extra authenticity in the town. Nightlife not recommended as this will ruin what Stanford stands for - history.

strange but interesting village
There isn't much too see particularly, but as a whole its worth a visit as it has a very specific spiritWe hadn't the weather for it, but kayaking must be worth doing.

A quint little town with a lot to offer
If you need peace and quietness, this is for you. It has a charm you can get used to and do not want to leave. Maybe come back to buy yourself a retirement home.
