I recently found myself a mere two and a half hours out of Cape Town visiting a brand new hidden gem. Fifteen minutes off the main road that runs through Robertson, I came across the gorgeously untouched town of McGregor.
McGregor is situated about 2 Hours 30 minutes from Cape Town but gives you the feeling of being in a foreign country so its the perfect home away from home. Accommodation in McGregor varies but a common thread of heritage and guest comfort and satisfaction is what makes the hospitality in this picturesque town so amazing.
I was lucky enough to stay at the gorgeous Kite House.
A modern house that sleeps 6, set in the heart of McGregor. It was as if I got off the tour bus in the middle of Europe. The contemporary furniture, spacious living areas and beautiful finishes makes this the perfect place for a family getaway, romantic weekend or a gathering of friends wine tasting through the Robertson wine country.
If you can even get to the kitchen after being distracted by the incredible beauty and serenity of the exterior of the house you will see that its the perfect place to relax and unwind in the country.
Kite House offers the following amenities:
Three Spacious Bedrooms (One room with a Double bed and Two rooms with 2 x single beds)
Two rooms have luxury en suit bathrooms
Spacious Balcony / Patio
Self Catering Accommodation (A kitchen definitely worth cooking in)
WiFi Available in the House
Electric Blankets in Winter and Air conditioning in Summer
Pet Friendly (Can ask for further details)
Large Swimming Pool
Parking on Premises
Well manicured and looked after large garden

After checking into Kite House, I could not wait to get into the kitchen and on a cold and wintry evening a hearty bowl of Spaghetti bolognaise was exactly what I felt like making. That may have sealed the home away from home factor!
