Etienne is a great host. He booked dinner for us at De Compnjie and breakfast at Cypress was a winner. Thanks again !

What better way to start a long weekend than with breakfast on a peaceful, shady verandah overlooking the beautiful Cypress Cottage garden. Thank you to our warm hosts Etienne and Vera for a super weekend in Swellendam!

Excellent accommodation and very nice old building. Breakfast was more than ample, freshly prepared and well served. Would not stay anywhere else in the area if Cypress Cottage was available.
