About Now and Then

Now and Then is situated four kilometers from Somerset West in the peaceful tranquillity of green vineyards and surrounding mountains. The Western Cape offers an amazing background in the form of Sir Lowry’s Pass and it is unforgettable.

We offer two studio apartments with their own private entrances. Each unit consists of an open-plan living area with a kitchen, underfloor heating, a private bathroom and a lovely patio leading onto the garden. All linen and towels are provided. There are braai facilities available for each unit.

Sir Lowry’s Pass is not just a route it doubles as the perfect place for bird watchers and people who love fauna and flora. It can takes a few hours to discover the fynbos as well as the streams that the mountainside offers.

Great views of False Bay is what the Sir Lowry’s Pass town offers whilst the mountain offers beautiful flora.

Laurienne made it possible for us to stay with her mother, so we were closer to our grandparents who we were visiting. Although the accommodation at her mother's was very basic we had a great time. Her mother is such a honey and very helpful.

Nice and homely place, full of books and other stuff, giving it a very cozy feel. Got a warm welcome even for just a single night stay, would be worth spending a bit longer as there is wine tasting and beach all close by.

This is a comfortable, no-frills flatlet in the garden. It was nice to have a fridge/freezer in the well-stocked  kitchenette.. The wall between our unit and the neighbouring one had an inter-leading door, and we could hear everything the other guests were saying, so we had to whisper while they were in their unit. Fortunately, they were out most of the day. We mentioned this to the owner, and she said they would sort out this problem. There is a lovely view of Gordon's Bay from the garden.

Had a pleasant stay! Rooms felt clean and had no issues whatsoever. The view of Sir Lowry's Pass is incredible, so for people on a budget I would highly recommend staying here as you won't find a better place for this cheap!

I could not believe the room price was so low and when I saw what we got it was brilliant. Cosy one bedroom self catering accommodation with all necessary amenities. Friendly greeting andhome made rusks made all the difference. You don't see this type of hospitality often. Cute, cosy and fully equipped. Highly recommended!
