Hosts really took good care of me - Ujan : Thailand

This place is simply home far away from home.  It was my first time to CT and the hosts took wonderful care of me. The place is clean and comfortable.  Definitely on the great memories I have there.  I will definitely come back if I have the chance.  Thank you so much for such a great trip

So cool when you get upgraded!

Tracey & Mark are amazing hosts.  I wanted to stay as close as possible to the US Consulate and their location was perfect.  Not only were all their suites amazing, they upgraded me to their Executive Constantiaberg Suite, as it was unoccupied that day.  Very fast wifi so I managed to get my work done as well.  I had difficulty getting an Uber on the morning of my appointment, so Tracey drove me to the US Consulate at no charge,  and made sure all was ok.  My appointment finished early and they very kindly let me work their guesthouse, eventhough it was way after check-out time.  I would definitely go back there - the stay was very pleasant and they were so accommodating. I highly recommend this guesthouse to anyone wanting a home away from home with an extra touch!

4th stay at Windsor House - such a treat

I have just got back from 6 weeks at Windsor House.  It was my 4th stay and as ever, it was such a treat!  I stayed in the Constantiaberg Suite again - its a big room with lovely en-suite and a large private veranda to relax with views over the swimming pool.  Mark and Tracey are the perfect hosts. Always happy too help with any logistical needs (this time, I hired a state-of-the-art  bicycle) and Tracey helped arrange a trip to Botswana through her travel agent.  She is an invaluable source of info on restaurants, shops and bars.  Not to be missed is her mange and yoghurt breakfast - a speciality I love! Looking forward to returning many times in the future.

Beautiful swimming pool and stylish accommodation

We came over from the UK for our son's wedding.  We had a relaxing stay with all our needs seen to by Mark and Tracey.  We enjoyed swimming in the beautiful pool.  Tracey organised a Fish Braai for us together with my brother-and-sister in-law which was out of this world! Nothing was too much trouble and everything was run so efficiently. Everything about the place was stylish and we would not hesitate to book again if were fortunate to revisit CT

Location was perfect for all activities

We had an amazing family vacation at this homestay in Tokai. The location was perfect for all the activities we came to enjoy: surfing, hiking, excellent restaurants, beautiful wineries, golf and shopping. The house itself was well-equipped with everything we needed and wanted. No detail was overlooked (premium bedding, fluffy towels, robes, hairdryer, guide books, coffee maker, tea kettle, fridge, electrical adapters, medicine kit, lovely Turkish towels for beach trips). I even purchased the Turkish bedcover that was in our room! My husband and I shared the largest suite upstairs (modern, tastefully decorated) which has a big/separate sitting room with kitchenette and a furnished balcony where we had coffee each morning while planning our days. My sons each had their own comfortable rooms downstairs, both with outdoor access to a pool, sun loungers and barbecue area. I cannot overemphasize the value these dedicated hosts brought to our stay. Tracey and Mark began preparing for our arrival well in advance with car rental advice, restaurant reservations, the latest COVID developments, and airport transfer arrangements. Tracey made us a wonderful dinner because we arrived so late at night. We did a mix of breakfast in and out, depending on our plans. The in-house breakfast is the real deal - hot/cooked to order breakfast plus yogurt, fruit, pastries, muesli. Tracey and Mark advised us on where to eat, park, hike, shop - which saved so much time and research on our part. Tracey called ahead to make all the reservations. When we caught a stomach flu, she brought us medicine, crackers, ginger ale and even offered to bring in a private nurse. She arranged for that same nurse to do our pre-departure COVID testing in-house, which was very convenient (and then printed all the documents we needed for the flight). Our rental car was delivered and picked up at the house. The level of service and support given to our family was outstanding! I highly recommend a holiday at Windsor House. Just get yourself here, and Tracey and Mark will take care of the rest!

Really lovely and will stay here again for sure.

Tracy called the day after our reservation to confirm and give us more information. The Constantiaberg Suite we stayed in had it's own lounge and kitchen area with a Nespresso machine. The room itself was very comfortable and every need was seen to. The en-suite bathroom is spacious with two basins and plenty of clean towels, we were even supplied with some 100% cotton Turkish towels to use. The house and unit was decorated with great care and good taste. Really lovely and will stay with them again for sure.”

AN UNEXPECTED TREASURE!

AN UNEXPECTED TREASURE!
Having lost my accommodation enroute to the airport, Windsor House took my last minute booking without question. Everything, right down to offering a delightful evening meal (unexpected) after a very tiring day was relaxed, professional and comfortably accommodating. This accommodation was an absolutely fantastic find.

Crumpets for breakfast - so good we asked for the recipe!

Everything was exceptional. Nikki and I enjoyed our stay at Windsor House - it was clean, the bed was very comfortable and it was nice to sit outside on the veranda or in the gazebo in the evenings. Tracey made many recommendations, and we ate at a number of the restaurants she recommended. She made us crumpets for breakfast - they were so good we asked for the recipe!
