    Really nice guesthouse right in the centre of Franschoek, all the best restaurants and bars are within walking distance - some of the farms which are bit further away so you will need to drive. Jarno & Aukje are warm and made us feel really welcomed, they even gave us a map of the valley with a suggested itinerary of the wine farms, restaurants and art galleries to visit! The rooms are spacious and the king size bed is very comfortable. The breakfast is delicious, not just standard eggs and bacon, it’s a full on spread of pastries, fruit, bread, cheese and cold meats. (Definitely will fuel you for a day of wine tasting!) We will be back soon!

    The Avondrood has been very well rated in the past - we know because our good friends who had lived in South Africa for many years, rated it very highly and recommended it to us. When we learned, after booking, that the owners had changed we were a llittle apprehensiive. Was it possible, we wondered, that the new proprietors could maintain the wonderful standard that our friends had talked about in such glowing terms? In the event, we should not have worried. The new owners, Jarno & Aukje, have clearly set themselves such high standards that they were not satisfied to merely maintain the level - they were going to take it further, much further! You sense this in all that they do - nothing is too much for them; the quality of the breakfasts matches that of the beautifully maintained, secluded garden, with it's delightful pool - and jacuzzii - a real treat after alll the hard work of sightseeing and wine-tasting! In the rooms, nothing has been overlooked - comfort and convenience combine with imaginative design. And although, when relaxing by the pool, you feel isolated and remote from the bustle of the village, when the time comes to eat, the Avondrood is just a few minutes strolll from the excellent restaurants in the centre of Franschhoek. In our travels, we have rarely experienced such a high degree of professionalism and genuine desire to please the customer as we found in this delightful guest house. Bravo! Jarno and Aukje - we'll be back!

    From the moment you step through the door Jarno & Aukje make you feel very welcome and the guest house is finished to a very high standard. The rooms and gardens are beautiful and peaceful with amazing views of the surrounding mountains. It is a truly stunning place and we only wish we could have stayed longer!

    Elegant & stylish traditional Cape-Dutch house set in a beautiful garden just off the main street of Franschhoek. Charming and helpful hosts.

    Our hosts, Jarno & Aukje, could not have been more pleasant and accommodating. They had excellent suggestions about where to eat and took care of all bookings and also provided us with many itinerary choices that were all excellent. The house has recently been remodeled and looks beautiful and the rooms were spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was wonderful with many choices. They are definitely proprietors that care a lot about what they do and about the happiness of their guests. Would certainly recommend a stay there!

    This beautiful Victorian house has been stylishly and elegantly renovated and furnished by the young Dutch proprietors Jarno and Aukje to offer quality more in keeping with five star rather than four star accommodation. The bedrooms are beautifully appointed in keeping with the Victorian theme but with 21st century comfort and quality. The bathrooms offer both shower and bath facilities of the highest quality and there is a plentiful supply of towels and toiletries. There is a large, beautifully furnished guest lounge and a lovely garden, with pool and hot tub, in which to relax after a hard day’s wine-tasting. However, the most impressive aspect of our 5-day stay at Avondrood Guest House in Franschhoek was the hospitality we received from our young hosts who are extremely warm, welcoming and friendly. Breakfasts, served on the terrace, were delightful and substantial with a “special creation” being offered daily. Aukje and Jarno helped us plan our days and booked lunches and dinners at the excellent restaurants in the region and offered advice on all aspects of our stay. We look forward to our next visit.

    Home sweet home! We’ve travelled a lot and there are only a few places where you instantly feel at home. You may experience astonishment visiting a beautiful game lodge, feel good after visiting a nice restaurant, but the experience of entering your own home on holiday you rarely discover. Avondrood is such a place, the rooms, the breakfast, the early morning cappuccino, or two, and of course Jarno & Aukje. And again is not the professional treatment you may experience in a 5 star hotel, no this is even better. You feel like you have been invited by Jarno & Aukje to visit their home. We planned to stay for two nights, travelled to another guesthouse in Stellenbosch, stayed for half an hour and returned to Avondrood the same day for another two nights! We were lucky that there was still one room available. And an awesome last two days of our holiday. Jarno & Aukje, Avondrood and Franschhoek , never change a winning team.
