    The property was conveniently placed with lots of things to do and see. It is just the perfect size for a couple and equipped with everything you need. We had an electric blanket along with a fireplace and wood that kept us warm during the winter...

Periwinkle Cottage is an amazing retreat with over 100 rose bushes and a beautiful country garden. In summer when the roses are in full bloom it is a picturesque rainbow of flowers. In winter with the fire place it turns into a completely different beauty with gorgeous clear views of the amazing mountain landscapes.
Michele is a super host .Michele goes way beyond her call of duty to make all guests feel welcome and super comfortable.
Swartland is a gorgeous suburb that makes one think of times gone by with gravel roads and at least one apple tree sticking out of each property. In times gone by Swartland was a big apple orchard. Swartland is a mere 10 minute walk and 1 minute drive, to the main square (Shopping and Restaurant District) in Clarens and takes you back in time.The experience is awesome to say the least. So if you haven't been make sure you do.
