Beautiful Places

A Touch of Tuscany in Stellenbosch


There’s nothing like a night away to refresh the soul. Living in Cape Town we are so spoilt with options for nights or weekends away that it’s often difficult to choose! Stellenbosch has always had a special place in our hearts and is by far one of our favourite places for a short break. We’ve stayed in many different and lovely places in Stellies over the years, but every once in a while you come across a real gem, a place so special it deserves its own category. Casa Mori B&B is such a place.

We booked through Airbnb – believe it or not this was my first ever Airbnb experience and it was a breeze!

We stayed in the Molly room which was absolutely gorgeous and is separate from the main building leading out to the pool area. The views are something else – I will let the images speak for themselves.


Our hosts Marilyn and Eugene were absolutely wonderful. All the small details are beautifully thought out including fresh roses in the room and a really delicious breakfast in the morning. They recommended we visit the Slow Market on our way home, which happened to be very close by, and it was well worth a stop!

The whole experience was really something special, from the beautiful room, exquisite views, wonderful breakfast to the perfect location (just a 10 minute drive to Stellenbosch town.)

We had such a lovely time surrounded by incredible beauty – we will be back!
