Stanford Heights River House

The Stanford Heights River House in South Africa is a luxury guest house above the Klein River in charming Stanford Village 2 hours drive from Cape Town. With incredible views from every bedroom and a spacious double volume lounge with a flying kayak and inviting stoep, the River House is a one of a kind.


A modern designer home with an African game lodge feel, this guest house is an experience of a lifetime with enough memories to last you until your next visit! (Gas braai, no DSTV, no pets).

"Everything is just perfect..."

"The house and setting was absolutely beautiful. The kitchen had everything you could wish for. The front patio area faces North with beautiful views over the river, farms and mountain, while you lounge on the luxurious furniture.  All-in-all this was one of my best Airbnb experiences."

“The house is absolutely beautiful and has an amazing view of the mountains. It also has access to a fun river just below it. We swam and SUP'ed every day. Janine was very quick to react to any requests we had and everything in the house was in great condition. I can highly recommend this stay.”
