      Have stayed at Fern cottages often and will continue to book at Fern Cottage. Very cozy away from home accommodation and the hosts are very friendly and accommodating. Well done so enjoyed my every stay there.

      This little flatlet is so homely. Stayed two nights and was very very comfortable. This is my second time staying at Fern Cottage and will definitely be back. Thanks for a lovely stay.

      Amazingly well equipped cottage. Comfortable bed. Very close to Kirstenbosch Gardens. Second time we have been staying here and we are very comfortable in the little apartment.
