There are four units for guests to choose from. Two units accommodate up to two people, with the Garden unit taking up to four people and the Family unit taking up to eight people with prior arrangement.

Both the Jono unit and Cara unit are on the first floor and have off-street parking, while the Garden unit and the Family unit is on the ground floor with parking on the lawn.

Guests are able to watch the artists at work in the studio or spend some time browsing the art gallery and gift shop.

Self catering unit 2 was perfect for our one night stay while touring the Hemel en Aarde valley. Will definitely be back.

We really enjoyed our stay. Very well positioned at the wine village. Room fully equipped and very comfortable (pics on website are refreshingly exactly the same as what the rooms actually look like!). Braai facilities are available too. We also enjoyed the owners home made Hornbill red wine. Will definitely stay again.
