Dear Linda & Jerry,

As always, we really enjoyed our stay in your very comfortable guesthouse. Keep up the good work, keep well.

Love and good wishes.

Hans & Suus Oosterman, The Netherlands, 9/3/16

Good morning Linda!

We would like to thank You very much for Your hospitality. We really regret, that we couldn’t spend more time with You and talk a little bit, but this one day … but even with this additional one day, I think that it won’t be enough for us. Cape Town is really great and beautiful, so various and interesting. We will come back here for sure! Your place is very nice and with such a great person like You, I would be more than happy to recommend it to my friends and colleagues from my company. Thank You once again for everything, best regards!

Hi Linda,

Thank you so much for accommodating our family during our week in Cape Town. We all flew in from London UK, Australia, Zambia, Kimberly and Johannesburg, for a long awaited family reunion ‘over 20 years – you made our stay 100% worth while’. The service we received from you and your team as a whole was far and beyond the call of duty. I commend you for all your efforts. Saying ‘thank you’ isn’t enough to express our gratitude. I will definitely be recommending you to all my family and friends. And for sure when I visit Cape Town there’s only one place I will be staying DE KEURBOOM GUESTHOUSE!!! PS we are back March/April 2018 xXx

Hi Linda,
We are back in Joburg.  Unfortunately, I could not come and say good bye as I had to rush to return the booked Car to the airport. My brother’s funeral went well.  We were well rested after the long drive and the place was beautiful and peaceful. I really enjoyed the quietness of Keurboom as I do not like too much noise myself. My relatives also enjoyed their stay there and were pleasantly surprised when we arrived and hope you also enjoyed our visit at your place. Good luck and thanks very much.

Dear Linda,
Thank you so much for the warm hospitality and the care we got from you, it is highly appreciated. The house is so beautiful and clean. We hope and wish to come back to this beautiful cottage in the near future. We like the house so much, it is home away from home! May the good Lord bless you abundantly with that beautiful heart you have.

Boitumelo & Friends, Bloemfontein, 29/03/2015

Dear Linda & Jerry,
Once again we had a very relaxed and comfortable stay at your beautiful guesthouse, it really is a place to come back to “who knows?” We wish you both all the very best and keep up the good work. Keep well.

With love and good wishes,

Linda must be complemented on creating a holiday home just like home.
The cottage is absolutely clean and comfortable. Little loving touches were all taken into account. Keep up the good work Linda! A very memorable stay and will certainly recommend to family & friends.

Priya Govender, Tongaat, KZN, 28/12/2014

Linda you deserve to be nominated Guesthouse of the Century! Clean, warm & welcoming...

Laura Holdsworth, Eastern Cape Gymnasts, 28/08/2014

We really appreciated the welcome and the wonderful little touches, i.e. toiletries, coffee, tea etc. Worth 4 stars in our opinion.

Dear Linda & Jerry,
Hans and I would like to thank you very much for a most enjoyable stay at your beautiful guesthouse. We appreciate very much your help in sorting everything out for us and for that we are very grateful to both of you, we’ll never forget it.
You have looked so well after us and made our stay very pleasant. We wish you both all the very best and much success with your beautiful guesthouse.”

Hans & Suus Oosterman, Holland, 17/02/2014

Many thanks for looking after me so well for the whole week, last week. You went out of your way in making our stay so pleasant and made me feel that I was staying at home!

Your ferrying us around and helpful advice and tips were also very supportive. I will certainly promote your holiday cottages when friends or family are travelling to Cape Town.

Linda Otto gets things right, and at a good price; I’m putting 14 people in houses, much nicer accommodations than your mid-priced hotel, for about $14 per person per day. In Cape Town, that’s quite good. If you need a place to stay in Cape Town, I strongly recommend Tell Linda I sent you; it won’t get you a discount, as far as I know, but it’ll make me feel really good.

Dr Dan Olinger, Bob Jones University, Greenville, U.S.A., 06/07/2013

Hi Linda! It was such a pleasure meeting you and your husband. Thanks for making my trip memorable. Look forward to hearing from you and keeping in touch. God richest blessings

Simon Kantwane, Gauteng, 04/2013

Hi Linda, thanks for the most wonderful experience staying at your unit. The tranquil ambience was indeed needed after a long journey. I comment you for the quality service rendered, this surpassed our expectation. I will most definitely make use of your unit in the future.

Harold Prinsloo, Port Elizabeth, 07/2012 

Hi Linda, thanks once again for a wonderful stay there. Not only are you a great host but u r a wonderful person as well. We will definitely come back again!!!!

Ruben Bosman, Knysna, 03/2012 


I loved the accommodation, plenty of space, large kitchen, even your own private space where you can hang washing or just sit outside in the sun, a quiet location, but yet very central, i.e. around the corner from everything (Stellenbosch, Tygervalley, sea, family, friends, food: Pick n Pay, petrol), i was pleasantly surprise that there was a garage for my car, thank you very much Linda Otto, i will definitely stay there again.

Marike Meyer, U.K, 03/2012 

This I can vouch for: We stayed at De Keurboom Guesthouse during October 2011 and it was a wonderful experience – wish I could have stayed there forever! Everything is so perfect, there is nothing lacking. Thanks Linda, if ever I come to Cape Town again, I will definitely stay at your wonderful place. Kind regards, Marietjie Wentzel

Marietjie Marais-Wentzel (Writer & Editor at Petru-Nell Skryfbesigheid), 03/2012
