Yverne made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The lovely open garden and pool area were very welcome in the summer heat, the accommodation was comfortable and clean and the attention to detail was great (such as separate towels for the pool). The cherry on top was the delicious dinner! This will definitely be our halfway stop when we take our next trip to the Cape!
