I’ve been meaning to upload these images for a while. Isi & Verron looked so cool in their gowns and slippers relaxing on their patio with a late afternoon coffee that I had to take a pic. They spent the night with us on the 9th Feb and had this to say about Schoone Oordt…
Thank you all for your gracious hospitality & generosity at your beautiful guesthouse. Was most memorable. The suite was exquisitely appointed and very comfortable. The setting is conducive to a wonderful retreat, set in a grove of trees and beautiful gardens. Thank you. We will be back!
We have been so lucky with really fantastic guests coming to visit. It’s always a bit sad to see them go!
There has been a very bare wall in the foyer/reception area for the longest time and we’ve often spoken about putting a beautiful painting of the house onto it. A few months ago, whilst browsing at the local Swellendam market, I came across a very cool artist – Alida, diTekenar, which translated means ‘The Drawer’ and commissioned her to do a painting of our house with us in it. This sort of morphed into including the staff, the children, close family and the resident pets! I’m really happy with it. It livens up the room and creates a definite talking point!
I’ve also included a photo that was taken by Jules Morgan in June of last year showing all of us on the steps of the house, so you can see what we really look like. Unfortunately, that pic doesn’t include Ashe as he’s still in my tummy!
