Accommodation at Aan de Vliet Stellenbosch

Aan de Vliet Guest House Stellenbosch has four comfortable guest units. Three of these units are sited for longer stays and have self-catering facilities.

The Tree-House is a two-room apartment that is a favourite for longer stays with Aan de Vliet guests. This airy apartment has more space with a separate lounge, a fully-equipped kitchen and an adjoining bedroom – thus can sleep four people if required.

There is a private balcony with barbeque facilities, patio furniture and sun-loungers for alfresco meals outside. Here, you can unwind with sundowners while enjoy lovely views over the garden and dam.

The bedroom comes with a King-size bed and en-suite bathroom with shower while the kitchen area has an additional TV.

If you are a family or group of friends, you can book their two Bird Nests units. These two units are located next to each other and share a balcony, which can be partitioned if you need privacy.

The units are called the birds’ nests because they are on the first floor and you have a birds-eye view on the treetops like you were sitting in a bird’s nest! Inside, you will find semi-self-catering kitchenettes, an open plan lounge, a bedroom with King-size bed and en-suite bathrooms (shower only).

Known as Room 2, this unit is smaller but preferred by many Aan de Vliet guests as it is still comfortable and very cosy. It is on first floor and has lovely views over the garden. It can be booked as an adjoining unit with the Tree-House or as a separate room on its own.

Inside is a Queen-size bed, twin tub chairs and writing table, en-suite bathroom with shower, air-conditioning as well as a balcony/patio with outside table and chairs.

“We stayed at Aan de Vliet for four nights. The owner and staff were friendly and very accommodating. The room very spacious and super clean. We were probably 7kms from the Stellenbosch airfield and the same to town. However we still felt like we were in the countryside. Looking forward to our next stay here,” said Gerda P.

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.


You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
