Who We Are And What We Do

We - Peter & Carola - became the owner of Wind-Rose guest house in 2016. We have always dreamed of moving abroad. Where we first fantasized about an Agriturismo in Italy, ultimately the choice fell on South Africa. This beautiful country has stolen our hearts and we still enjoy every day of our hidden gem in Gordon's Bay in the heart of the Cape.

Our motto is Relax, Enjoy, Unwind and it is our mission to make our guests feel at home away from home.

We can not do this without our staff. We are very happy with Monica and Tommy who not only prepare the breakfast for the guests but, also ensure that the whole guest house is cleaned and the laundry is done.

Lucas is our right but also left hand ;-) He not only takes care of our garden but is also the handyman

What Our Guests Say About Us

We had a fantastic stay at Wind-Rose Guesthouse. The room are very spacious and beautifully decorated. The garden is lush and gives a relaxing atmosphere. We are happy that we have choosen to stay in Gordon's Bay and not in Capetown. Capetown is buzy, noisy and hot. Gordon's Bay is strategically situated for all the interesting things to see in and around Capetown. It gives a much easier access to the Wine route, the Whale route to Hermanus, The pinguin-viewing at Betty's bay (much better than at Boulder's Bay) and you ca have a very scenic drive to Cape of Good Hopes.After 4 weeks South Africa travels, we dare to say that Wind-Rose guesthouse serves the best breakfast in the country.....! The hosts will help you with all your questions and they have smart travel tips. We will be back!

We've stayed for one week at the Wind-Rose guest house and we enjoyed every second of it. One of the factors that made our stay so comfortable were the owners: Peter and Carola were very helpful in giving recommendations what to do in the area. Even when the weather was not as good (which was unfortunately the case for some of our days) they gave very good tips what to do and where the weather might be nicer. For those who are interested in outdoor activities, hiking and biking, they have some very good information about trails in the area too. The room was very spacious, clean and newly renovated. The view over the bay area was definitely a plus. Due to the location somewhat off-site it was very calm and the gardens where so pretty. Breakfast was served daily with fresh fruit, bread, eggs made to order and much more. Everything was fine and we could not ask for more. When returning South Africa we will definitely come back to Wind Rose.

Wind-Rose is een mooi en sfeervol ingericht guesthouse met grote schone kamers, badkamer met bad en douche, een grote tuin en grote lounge met open haard. Vliegveld van Kaapstad op ongeveer 30 minuten rijden. Hier vijf dagen met ons gezin mogen genieten van de gastvrijheid en de behulpzaamheid van Peter en Carola. Ontbijt is uitstekend verzorgd en gevarieerd. En belangrijk voor de kinderen: altijd goed werkende Wifi beschikbaar. Vanwege de gunstige ligging een perfecte locatie om meerdere dagen te verblijven en Kaapstad, Kaap de Goede Hoop, Hermanus en/of de wijnroute rondom Stellenbosch te bezoeken. Wij gaan hier zeker nog terugkomen.
