Stellenbosch. 22 Die Laan Self Catering Accommodation.

#VisitStellenbosch – During my recent visit to Stellenbosch on a #SoloExperience with Destinate and Stellenbosch 360, I spent the night at 22 Die Laan, located on the historical Avenue, next to the green-rimmed Eerste River.

As they claim, it is literally a 3-4 minutes walk to the town centre where the restaurants, shops and attractions are found although works perfectly for corporates, sports and academic visitors too. A perfectly appointed and comfortable guest house that offers a sense of independence to the more seasoned traveller, as well as the care and attention to first time visitors seeking advice on what to do.

This owner run accommodation was once the family home and there are photos of family members and anecdotal touches to make you feel welcome. They pride themselves on personal service and going the extra mile for guests.

Actually I was sad not to have more time to enjoy the comfort of my room, lounge and pool area, although very grateful for the directions and assistance as I was guided to my appointments.

The modern facilities like free high speed Wi-Fi, a Satellite TV, air conditioning, underfloor heating and heated towel rails in the bathrooms as well as bath robes, ensure all comforts. There are even hot water bottles for winter.

Although given the Summer months that lie ahead, it will be the swimming pool and garden that you will want to retreat to between visits to wine farms and taking in the area.

A great convenience is the kitchenette with microwave oven, kettle and toasters, although guests do have full access to the main kitchen. This is wonderful if you buy fresh farm produce, cheese, charcuterie, olives and more while out in the day and just want to relax at the guest house in the evenings.

You have the choice of a Standard, Classic, Garden or Luxury Garden Suite. All are lovely. They also have a Studio Apartment.

I was pleased to hear about 22 Die Laan’s involvement with keeping the Eerste River clean. Owner Ounin Arndt shared this video of Lexson, their Gardener, who is responsible for this important community project.
