Enjoy the comforts and tranquility of Summerwood, a delightful and welcoming guesthouse in the Cape Winelands. Accommodation at this unique boutique hotel, originally built in 1904, was designed by an Italian architect and has been lovingly restored to meet the demands of the modern traveller. It is situated in the historic university town of Stellenbosch, only 20 minutes from Cape Town International Airport.
Summerwood offers nine-en-suite bedrooms, each individually and tastefully decorated to provide the warmth and relaxation that only a home can satisfy. Enjoy a leisurely breakfast in the country style dining room, or on the patio overlooking the pool and gardens. Take a refreshing swim in Summerwood's pool, unwind with a drink under the shade of our much loved Stinkwood tree and leave your hosts to make reservations for dinner from a selection of some of the finest restaurants in the country - all within walking distance of Summerwood. It really is your home away from home.
Scenic setting in heart of Stellenbosch
Small and sophisticated Stellenbosch may just be the most beautiful town in South Africa. It is the second oldest town after Cape Town and it really does feels historic. Wander the oak shaded streets, which still have irrigation furrows and you will see some of the finest examples of Cape Dutch, Georgian and Victorian architecture. The town was founded in 1679 by Simon van der Stel, the first governor of the Cape, who recognized the agricultural potential of this fertile valley. The town is also home to the University of Stellenbosch, the country first and prestigious Afrikaans University.
