Fairview Historic Homestead George
Whether on business or holiday on the Garden Route, true South African hospitality, home comforts and privacy will ensure a memorable stay in this graciously restored homestead. Polished wooden floors, four poster beds, antique furniture and fireplaces lend warmth and character to the high ceilinged rooms. The Studio Annex, independent to the main house, can be booked on a self-catering basis. Dinner (by prior arrangement) where traditional specialities, such as Bobotie, Waterblommetjiebredie and Karoo Lamb dishes have been favourites over the years.
The Benkensteins have been taking great pleasure in welcoming guests into their beautiful home for more than 15 years. Philda loves entertaining and the guest book overflows with references to the excellent breakfasts she serves. Desmond (fisherman, collector of antique medical equipment and keen gardener) is the creative force behind the magnificent gardens.
