About Us

"We were always waiting for more time. More time to see each other. More time to see our friends. More time to see our family. We were always waiting for long weekends, vacations and quiet time. We were even looking forward to our retirement! But things never changed. Our lives never seemed to slow down. Until that one day when we decided to change things ourselves and to do it while we were still young and full of energy!"

Surrounding & House


The wine region is synonymous for the diversity of the Cape region. Only a 30 min drive from Cape Town International Airport you will find Stellenbosch, the second oldest town of South Africa. We will show you an area with impressing mountains, green vineyards, and culinary stops at famous wine farms or small hot tips. Every visitor will find their own favorite highlight. Traditional wine villages like Franschhoek, Paarl or Robertson are in the direct vacinity of Stellenbosch.

A lot of different trips are possible and easy to organize: Wine tastings, Cape Town e.g. Alfred&Victoria Waterfront with Table Mountain, hiking and walks, trout fishing, guided round trips, bike and mountain bike tours, Golf, endless beaches, city and museum tours, Abseiling and Bungee, whale watching, theatre and festivals. Or start here, in Stellenbosch, your trip along the Garden Route. Our in-house travel agent can arrange everything for you without any additional costs to you.


Stellenbosch itself has a very nice historic city centre with an endless choice of cafes and romantic restaurants where you can relax in the shadow of the big oak trees. Stellenbosch was founded in 1679 and is the home of a famous university. About 24.000 students make the historic town a very lively experience for visitors. Feel the vibe!

Of course we also offer museums, galleries, a small botanical garden; something for everybody.

The Beautiful South Guesthouse
Our house is a thatched jewel, centrally located but quiet, right in the heart of the university area. Surrounded by old trees and flowers, you find it with a dreamy garden and a big pool.

Relax in this little paradise. We offer you accommodation in the old B&B (bed & breakfast) style; we have fewer rooms for more individualism!

Remember the events of the day with a cool drink in your hand and get new power for your next challenge. Have a nice dinner with excellent quality and incredible value for money.

Or enjoy a braai at our braai area, have a good red wine or....
