We had a lovely stay at St Croix, the cottage was very comfortable and had well appointed kitchen. As a family of four we loved playing tennis and swimming in the stunning pool everyday. Short drive into Franschhoek and really enjoyed the peace and quiet on the farm.

Fabulous. 4 out of 5

This is such a tranquil oasis of a place. Gorgeous gardens, historic buildings and the sparkling pool and tennis court are wonderful. We also did a mountain bike ride up the back of the property, that afforded us amazing views of the whole of Franschhoek.

From the moment we stepped foot on St.Croix, we have felt at home. We stayed in a self-catering unit and we were supplied with everything we needed. Must say, everything was in mint condition. Absolutely Loved the peace and tranquility. Left feeling refreshed :-) Would definitely recommend.

Stunning place...each cottage is a distance from the next, so lots of privacy. Nice place to get away from the busy city life. We spent our days relaxing and having picnics by the pool area and our evenings sitting outside having a braai.

So many wonderful places to eat including lovely outdoor courtyards with live music; lovely bespoke shops plus some necessities like Clicks; incredible world-class wine estates with wine tasting & pairing experiences and the wine tram; lovely accommodation well-tiered; safe to walk around. For an outstanding experience and meal I would recommend La Petite Colombe on Leeu estates.

The village vibe and how safe it is. Also, everyone can walk to where they want to go, instead of getting into a car every time.
