About Acara

Situated in the Winelands between Stellenbosch and Somerset West, Acara is nestled in a valley called "Happy Vale" amidst scenic vineyards with beautiful views of the Helderberg Mountains. There are 4 exclusive cottages - Acara can sleep up to 12 people. Peaceful and quiet, all rooms have heating/cooling, high speed, wireless internet and ipod facilities. All are normally offered on a self catering basis - because of the fully equipped kitchens (and all the excellent restaurants in the area!). Fiona offers exceptional hospitality and can offer suggestions on day trips, restaurants and things to do in the region.All units are all beautifully appointed, each with double doors leading onto a private terrace or deck area. They all have beautiful views to the sparkling heated swimming pool, large gardens, paddocks and of course to the mountains beyond.

Beach: We are only 7 minutes drive away from the beautiful Strand beach.

Golf: We are situated in the middle of MANY of the best courses the Cape has to offer! Superb location!

Family friendly: If you are travelling with children, I’d like to say that we do have an un-netted pool, and 2 (very small!) streams on the property – important to bear in mind with very young children. We also have animals... :-)

Romantic: Romantic willow trees and beautifully landscaped gardens. Gravel pathways to meander though, and benches and private area's to sit and sip a glass of wine or two.

Covid Safety Approved: All the rooms are fully self equipped with their own space/entrances and no shared areas, and naturally completely sanitised before your arrival. Check-in is quick and easy (and socially distant) Relax in spacious, natural, surroundings.

                  Acara is ine of the best locations we have ever been in South Africa.Fiona and Dave are perfect hosts, present when you need them.The cottages, the garden and the pool, all in very good condition and well maintained. A nice scenery with the surrounding mountains.We will stay there again and recommend it to our friends.

                  The kids loved the dogs and my daughter could not wait to feed and tend to the horses in the morning. Really a lovely place and will recommend it to friends and family
