Company info

I am interested in travel, in people and in history. I was born in the Kalahari Desert and I attended the universities of Stellenbosch, Johannesburg and UNISA where I obtained two different Bachelor degrees, an Honours degree and a Masters degree.

Property info

We are in a small cul de sac, but conveniently close to the R44, which means you escape the traffic nightmare and parking problems of central Stellenbosch and you can get on with your day. We are adjacent to two large parks where you can unwind or go for a little stretch and jog before breakfast. Boord Guest House has 2 pages on FACEBOOK: One under its own name and one under When you live in Stellenbosch. You are cordially invited to join both to stay in touch :-) We are pet friendly and will allow pets provided that you contact us beforehand to answer some questions about the poet. Pet rate per night is R250.00

Neighborhood info

Here is a list of things to do and places to go in our neighbourhood: 1. World-Famous Wine Route on our doorstep. 2. Numerous World-Famous Cape beaches less than an hour away: some only 20 min. 3. Stellenbosch Dorp Street and a historic town centre are just down the road. 4. Outdoor activities such as golfing, hiking, biking, mountain climbing, etc, are all nearby.
