We have wanted to stay at Belfield ever since having a wine tasting there a few years back. (Definitely request a Belfield wine-tasting with Mike when you stay. ) It is a convenient location on a beautiful farm. Shiraz house amply fitted 8 of us. The house was clean and have all the amenities we required. I liked the consciousness around water and waste evident by notes from the hosts and the provision of recycling facilities. It was easy to communicate with Mel for the checkin arrangements. We would definitely stay again.

This is the perfect house for a couple of families to spend a holiday together. Located among the apple trees and grape vines on Belfield Wine estate, Shiraz house is tucked away with its own gate and garden. The children had wonderful adventures outdoors, and our host Melanie even took them for a long nature walk every evening which the children said was their favourite part of the holiday! Mike guided us through a lovely wine tasting and tour of the wine making process. Shiraz house is perfectly located to visit the other estates on the Elgin wine route.

Response from Melanie:
Dear Alexandra and Paul. We were completely delighted with your two families - your enthusiasm and interest in our life on the farm. Everything seemed brighter and more fun on the "nature walks" with Anthony and Amy and the dogs. Thank you.

Everything was great. The cottage is spacious, clean and very comfortable, in a beautiful farm setting. It feels very quiet and peaceful but there are shops a few minutes drive away, good for stocking up on a few things. Mel was always quick to reply and very helpful. Belfield makes great wines and the tasting with Mike was a highlight! Thanks for the stay.

Ian it was such a pleasure having you and your group In Shiraz Cottage. Although Mike and I were running around doing what farmers do, we felt you were happy and enjoying the Elgin Valley. We hope you come back soon as you will definitely be welcome.

We stayed in the Shiraz House on Mel's beautiful farm. The house was spacious, well-equipped and secluded. The farm was stunning and peaceful and the perfect getaway from city life. Perfectly close to wine farms in the area as well as being a functioning wine farm itself! We would definitely come again!

Melanie is a wonderful host! She was really flexible with our check in and check out time and is generous in everything she does. Our weekend away at the Shiraz house was incredible refreshing! The house is very bright, spacey, beautifully decorated. We especially enjoyed the braii outside and the fire place inside. They also invited us to do a vine tasting and we got quite some insight into the history of their wine. You can also do some walks and go on walks and check out the beautiful little lake that is just around the corner. Thank you Melanie, this was a wonderful first Airbnb experience! Will def come back ;)

Belfield is our home and our passion. We love to meet people as we find their stories interesting and inspiring. We love hosting people on our farm and try to make their stay with us comfortable, tranquil and relaxed.
We love South Africa and our favourite destination is Timbavati - next to Kruger National Park. Namibia and Botswana are also favourites. We love space, big skies and natural beauty.
While Mike is passionate about his vines and wines, Mel is as passionate about the gardens on the farm and about protecting chameleons and other little creatures.
