Boschenmeer Golf Estate, amid the picturesque Cape Winelands. nestling on the Berg River valley is an eco-sensitive private golf estate, with many water features, that make it a haven for migratory birds and a sanctuary that is home to an abundance of waterfowl and exotic bird life. The Paarl Golf Club offers superb golfing as it is the only 27-hole golf course in the Western Cape, and the first David Frost signature golf course in South Africa. The backdrop to your back-swing is astride the majestic Drakenstein mountain range and Paarl Rock. Add mature trees, artfully conceived water features, and you've got the kind of layout that challenges the pro, rewards the amateur and inspires residents out for a stroll in their 140 hectare back yard. Designer David Frost has created a golf course of true championship standard and at the same time he has achieved a first class golfing experience that will both challenge the low handicap and scratch golfer, yet not be too daunting for the

Location description from owner
The Western Cape region
The Western Cape of South Africa is acknowledged as one of the most beautiful locations in the world. The scenery is magnificent, dominated by mountain views and endless vineyards. The Mediterranean climate is very similar to southern Spain with very long hot summers (September to May) and short temperate winters (perfect golfing weather). The region is famous for its magnificent and unique Fynbos flora and fauna Kingdom and its diverse wildlife - you can watch whales, seals and penguins in their natural environment as well as spotting the occasional wild ostrich and baboons as you drive through the countryside.
Boschenmeer is just 30 minutes from the Mother City. Cape Town is dominated by Table Mountain, enjoy the spectacular views of the 2 oceans and the city laid out below you. Cape Town is a modern, thriving, cosmopolitan city that’s exciting to visit, with a normal range of museums, shopping malls and other visitor attractions. The Victoria and Alfred Waterfront is the most varied, exclusive and interesting selection of exclusive shops in Africa. Just about everyone spends some time at the newly developed Waterfront, where there are more restaurants than you would ever have time to sample, with food from just about every corner of the world. There are numerous boating excursions leaving from the Waterfront including a ferry to the prison on Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned during the apartheid era. The Victor Verster Prison near Paarl, where he was released from in 1990, is only minutes away from Boschenmeer.
The Cape Winelands is South Africa's wine growing region and there are scores of vineyards within minutes of Boschenmeer in Paarl, Wellington, Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. Franschhoek, a tourist honeypot, offers high class French style dining and winetasting oportunities and Boschenmeer is situated only a short 15 minute drive away on the Franschhoek/Wellington R301 road. Stellenbosch, a famous University town, is only 20 minutes away with it's 'town & gown' leafy garden suburbs. It has excellent tourist shopping, bars, restaurants, winetasting on vineyards and student nightlife opportunities.
Boschenmeer lies in the heart of the Boland wine country surrounded by majestic mountains, rolling vineyards, wine estates, and is the only 27 hole golf course in the Western Cape. Boschenmeer Golf Estate offers some of the most spectacular scenary that any golf course can offer. The course is beautifully designed and laid out along the Berg river, giving the golfer the contrast between river, lakes and mountains, whilst also offering challenging golf.

“If you want to relax..THATS the place”
How can it be that you never get tired of watching the birds, the golfers,the sunset and the colors painting the mountains change. It is amazing that you can really relax.Maybe it is Africa or maybe the peace surrounding you.We had beautiful 8 weeks! Recharged our internal batteries. Slept like babies and of course ate too much in the the surrounding wineries and probably had too many sundowners..but what do they say..You only live once. John thanks a million for sharing your house..and YES we will be back!
Owner's reply: Thank you for your very positive review & your regular booking again for next year. Our 'swallows nest', in one of the prettiest part of our planet, is secured for you for another Northern Hemisphere winter.
Very clean house. All comfort. Good golf and warm welcome by Jaco who takes care of the house.The house has all facilities and the environment is good for hiking and dining as well.
Owner's reply: We are glad that you enjoyed your recent stay over Christmas/New Year at our family home. We are often full with repeat bookings, up to a year in advance from our loyal regulars, but if you can book early we hope to be able to welcome you to our home next year.
“a comfortable home in a relaxed environment”
If you like golf this is a good place to stay. The course looks easy, but isn't. Many opportunities for day trips and a wide choice of excellent restaurants nearby.
Owner's reply: Boschenmeer course was in excellent condition, even with the current water restrictions in place in the Western Cape this year.
“Holiday of a lifetime - Absolutley amazing!”
This was my first visit to South Africa and it certainly didn't disappoint. The accommodation was fantastic, it was lovely and modern, clean and had an all round African feel, as well as being in a fantastic location overlooking the golf course with Paarl Mountain in the background. The views from the terrace were stunning, particularly at sun set! It also had easy access to the local Mall, which was only a short drive away, which had everything we ever needed during our stay. Alternatively there were lots of lovely restaurants located in the centre of Paarl which were very good value for money. I would fully recommend a visit to Fairview and Spice Route which do fantastic lunches as well as wine tasting, beer tasting and chocolate tasting! I would highly recommend this trip and accommodation to everyone as it truly was a fantastic experience and I will definitely be going back!! I would also like to say a very big thank you to John and Susan for allowing us to stay in your beautiful South African home and Jaco for looking after us during our stay.
Owner's reply: Glad you and your family enjoyed your first Africa experience at our family home in beautiful Boschenmeer. We look forward to welcoming you to our house in the future so that you can continue your Africa adventures.
“our secret paradise”
This was our second stay in this house in Boschenmeer and if I say we already booked for next year you may guess...it was PERFECT. Jaco, the house manager took excellent care of us,including shopping before we arrived, so we could start relaxing from the very beginning. The new phone became as handy as the WiFi...simply loved that we did not have to go to the internet cafe any longer.The golf course was in super shape and we even found a great sport school in Paarl which we could join for the month...to burn off all those calories .... John and Susan thank you for letting us use your paradise!
Owner's reply: Glad Jaco our local House Manager looked after you and the house so well. Great that your regular month long visits are to continue in Feb 2014. Our PERFECT 'best kept secret' is just between the both of us !
“The perfect place to be in January”
Four weeks flew by in gorgeous weather with plenty of time sunbathing, travelling round the Wine Route and other parts of the wonderful Cape which, even on a fourth visit, still provided plenty of new places to experience. If we had a problem (as we had when one of us was quite seriously ill for a few days) we had only to call Jaco Rheeder, the property owner's representative in Paarl, and he would be on hand to help and advise. We will be returning as soon as we can and until then will enjoy the memories of one of the best holidays we have had. Bill and Carol Bridge, Bingley, West Yorkshire.
Owner's reply: We understand your wife had pnumonia and we were glad Jaco, our house manager, responded quickly and arranged for a Doctor. We heard she was in hospital within hours of arrival in South Africa because of his quick response. We are please she was in the best possible place to relax and convalesce and we are relieved that she is now safe and well back at home in UK. So I now advise any visitor to have good medical travel insurance before departure as medical care in SA is private & fees can be expensive.
“Second stay unfortunately poor maintenance”
This was our second stay, previous being November 2009. The insides of the property appeared to poorly cleaned with cob webs etc. You now need biometric access on arrival (rightly enhancing security vs our previous visit) however the local contact was not available to help. We managed to gain access via the on site estate folks. The nominated contact then failed to help for the following five days regarding the biometric access which caused the local security folks unnecessary concern with having to allow us in and out each time. Pool not attended in the 3 weeks we stayed at the property. No Internet access provided. The cable tv provided ran out for two days during our stay and was eventually reinstated. No hair dryer. WoW for the girls.No property phone even for local locals leading to expense if mobiles from outside SA need to be used. On departure the local contact provided the same excuse regarding being stuck in traffic and therefore could not meet us to verify the property on departure. Sounded similar to our arrival. Disappointing overall. Improvements required re basics in terms of WiFi, hairdryer and why folks have to chase up the cable tv using a UK based mobile phone to call/text the local contact and owner.
Owner's reply: Thank you for your comments. We are sorry that you experienced problems. Your feedback has been used to improve our service to our guests. Rest assured, we have acted on your observations about the standard of maintenance of our property and the unacceptable meet and greet problem with our local house manager. The biometric security screening issues you experienced will be addressed so that access to the estate is not a problem in the future. We are installing a landline and WiFi in the New Year and the property now has a hair dryer.
After many vacations in this area we finally found the perfect house for us.The patio is stunning, the golf course in excellent conditions.Jaco kind and helpful.We actually did not really want to leave.To make it easier we already booked for next year, so there is light in the end of the tunnel. Thanks for the beautiful time we had.
Owner's reply: We're glad you've found your perfect winter-sun bolt hole a long way away from the Northern European winters.....us too!
“Home from home, fabulous location”
We stayed in this house for a week in January it was just like home all the facilities in the house were excellent and the location in Paarl with a large shopping mall and great resturants in Main Road were perfect. It was easey to get into Cape Town, Stellenboch and Francshoek and as a base we were able to see many places of outstanding beautiy in this part of the Cape. We would highly recommend this house and its location.
Owner's reply: Glad you liked our home....we can't wait to get back there as soon as possible too!
“Holiday of a lifetime”
We arrived in Paarl in early November 2011 and the house was everyhing you wanted and hoped for. The views overlooking the golfcourse and subsequent sun sets were a site to behold. We felt safe with the friendly people around the complex. The were always smiling and made us so welcome. Wth great places to eat, with Bossa Nova in Paarl a particular favourite of ours. We visted Robben Island and Table Mountain and the bus tour aroun Cape Town is A must do. Por hose has beutiful views, and is quiet and we are already making plans to visit this fantastic place again in the future. The views aroun are spectacular, and although we had 2 weeks there there is still so much more we would like to see. we cannot fault to accommodation in any way and would recommend to anyone that this really is fantastic value for money. Thanks must go toeveryone who made this trip a holiday of a lifetime.
Owner's reply: We're delighted you were impressed with our beautiful Boschenmeer home. You say you want to stay for longer next year and we look forward seeing you again.
