This place is heaven. William has made this a slice of paradise in every way, from the details of the amenities with luxurious finishes, to his amazing cooking, and overall being an excellent host. We left our last night in Cape Town open and while traveling were told about this property by another couple. They were oozing about how wonderful this place was. We were able to book and were not disappointed. We only stayed for one night, but we will be back for an extended trip. This place cannot be described with only words. It's just magnificent.

Everything about this property was beautiful and romantic. The views are stunning. The property is beautifully maintained. The staff think of every detail and THE FOOD! The included breakfast is delicious. If you have a chance to have William cook, take it! It will be fantastic. We haven’t stopped talking about this place since we left.
