The eagle flies off the grid


Black Eagle, our latest house is up and running. Named for the Verreaux Eagle found on this part of the Paardeberg, this house is highest up the valley, has gorgeous views of Joubertskloof in both directions, and has internal spaces that soar skyward.  With 4 large en suite double rooms (some with an extra bed), Eagle is designed for getaways, small retreats and workshops.

Off the grid

A special feature of the house is its energy conservation. With double glazing and insulation of ceilings, floors and external walls, this house stays at a constant mild temperature all year round. And its 36 solar panels and two large solar geysers mean that it is entirely off the grid with energy to spare.

Some recent workshops and wine tastings, a 70’s style birthday and a fancy dress 40th

Thank you, everyone really enjoyed themselves. I think the party was a great success. Thanks so much for all your help on the night Gail, we really appreciate it. The wine tasting was really great too.

NGO Retreat

To you, Dianne and Johan a very big Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

You'll made our stay most pleasurable, comfortable and stress-free. You thought of everything for this to be possible. Especially the coffee (forgot mine at home).

The girls said to convey to you'll their thanks as this was definitely not their last outing to Fynbos Estate. They especially loved the swimming from morning till late and eating their meals outside with a most stunning view and sleeping with mattresses down on the floor.
I have previously been out with other groups where we paid an arm and a leg and it wasn't quite as perfectly set up the way you did for me and my group. Your place is absolutely beautiful peaceful and so safe. My main concern was the safety of the girls but that concern was put to rest when I got there. 
My sincerest gratitude to all of you.
Stay Blessed

Anthea and friends 

Thanks for everything, we had a great time and will definitely be back!



The place is great the food was excellent and the wine delicious.


Dions 40th fancy dress

A perfect party at the perfect setting. We just loved staying over in this huge farm house which brought back fond childhood memories, also allowed us ample opportunity to share some time with family and friends before and after the party. Waking up, having coffee on the stoep was just awesome. Most people could stay over and we didn’t have to worry about people driving home or run into trouble with the law. Definitely a very memorable party.

Two  tasting events , one organised by SIP (Swartland Independent Producers)  and another at the FLAMINGO ROOM,  brought us and our wines up country to the big city.  From  feedback we can see that our natural  boutique wines are very attractive to people and noticed how taken they were not only with the low sulphur of our wines (no headaches) but also with the idea that we make `wines of the year’.  We now have an agent, Lucy Douglas, who will be handling marketing and sales for us in the Gauteng area. If you are interested and live up country do make contact with her  at
