Some Explorers Club Comments


Everything about this place is intriguing. There is a great sense of attention to detail, there is an understanding that the open plan design brings everyone together, that families and friends can bond and unite and go away with a happy feeling. When you walk in the door (and we’ve been back twice) you feel like you have arrived home. There is a protea flower to welcome you, a box of biscuits, milk, coffee, tea - small things that settle you in, like when you put on a fluffy pair of slippers after getting home from a long day at work. I liked it that the kitchen is stocked with everything you need, good quality stuff, the sheets are crisp and white, and the towels are fluffy and clean. There are swimming towels if you need them, vacuum cleaner, heaters, aircon, inside braai…and the list goes on. A wonderful stylish holiday home. We’ll be back.

What better place to base yourself for a discovery of Franschhoek than the Explorers Club – and what better guide to the delights of this special place than Jo Sinfield? They don’t exist. Thanks for your tips that have helped make a memorable trip.

Wonderful, wonderful place Jo! It is a hidden gem in Franschhoek. We loved our stay, it is so homely, down to the last detail.

Thank you for the Explorers Club experience. It was more that what I imagined it to be and worth spreading the word around.
Manolita Morales, Phillipines

Loved the bush elegance you’ve created. Very, very special and Franschhoek needs something as different as this.

It feels like yesterday when we were last here two years ago. Such brilliant fun as ever - thanks for spoiling us!

It felt like home - at least the sort of home I’ve always wished for. Thank you for the wonderfully warm hospitality.

To a wedding in Franschhoek two ladies from Cape Town did come. Goodness me at Explorers Club they were surprised by a baboons bum!!!! Thank you, we will certainly recommend this home to friends, locally and overseas.

Another magical stay at Explorers. We have had a marvellous time, it was bliss to be back here. Just love this house! Araminta & Tony Verdin

We are a group of six swedes, all related, who found our way to this beautiful place. We have truly enjoyed our stay in this spectacular house.

Four very old friends (and exhausted mothers) gathered here for a wonderful four days of drinking, eating, gossipping, sleeping, shopping and a bit more drinking.. what a fab place thank you.

Explorers is a little sanctuary and it truly feels like home to us. We leave with heavy hearts but we will be back. We have fallen in love with Franschhoek.

From Bath to Cape Town 13,000 miles overland & this beautiful home certainly beats camping in the rooftent! Thanks for your hospitality.

We have had a great time here. Lovely house, good walks, fantastic food & wine, un-burnt sausages on the indoor barbeque and the second comfiest bed in the world (after our own!). Thank you very much.
