What visitors have to say :

“I can’t recommend this gorgeous home enough. The history, hospitality and style of the place and it’s people were unparalleled. Perfect for a road trip in the interior of the country, an extended wine tour, or a weekend away from the city.

“Our time at Jonkmanshof was nothing short of magical. We felt we had travelled back in time and arrived in a similar, more wholesome place…it was perfect”

“I loved it! It was far beyond my expectations!! The house is a jewel. Everything is so well done! I travelled a lot, visited many places but your place is extraordinary! I come back for sure to experience this again with my wife and to visit your second house soon! Brydon was great. Such a hospitality expert. I am fan of him. He’s gorgeous! Please give him my compliments and warm regards!!”

“We loved our stay in this incredible place! Hein and Brydon went out of their way to host us so well. There is so much to do in Montague and we were given so many brilliant local tips - even restaurant bookings were organised for us. That said we didn’t get many of these local tips checked off our list as the home was such a joy and super relaxing to spend time in. From the succulent garden, with awesome pool, sweet tortoises and chickens roaming the garden the spectacular interior of the home itself, every room equally as beautiful. We loved our stay here and will definitely be back, thank you again! “

“One word - AMAZING! Add place to your bucket list. One of the best places I have ever stayed at. The house and decor are fabulous, the furnishings are comfortable, the washrooms/bathrooms are beautiful, the outdoors are relaxing, and the best of all the hosts are great people who were a pleasure to meet. .. I will definitely be back. When you look at the photos online know that the photos do not do justice to how lovely the house is. We were blown away when we saw the place. Lastly but definitely not least , the breakfast was outstanding - fresh food, locally grown and everything was delicious. I would recommend this place to everyone (have already started to). “

“ Simply the most incredible home. We did not want to leave. Everything down to the last detail is beautifully considered. Montagu is wonderful . Our hosts were incredible. Would go back in a heart beat. “

“This was one of the loveliest places we have ever stayed! We loved Brydon who greeted us on arrival and shared about all it's treasures -- the rare citrus and succulent collection, the antiques and furnishings -- who promptly made a dinner reservation for us after a long day of travel, and who also prepared a delicious harvest breakfast for us. We were charmed by the resident rescue tortoises as well as the chickens and dogs, and only wished we could have stayed longer to read in the greenhouse and swim in the pool. We're already planning a longer return visit! “
