Frans & Family
We have a unique property with an absolute beautiful view of the Rebunie and Hantam Mountains. Dark nights with bright stars and we lie on the edge of the town, but walking distance from centre of town. Lots of birdlife. If you want a farm atmoshpere but still in town, this is the place to stay.
My garden is my pride where I spent a lot of time . I like a nice clean garden.
we have a very quiet neighbourhood with not much traffic.
