Twenty one years ago, just before we bought Fairview, we made an offer on another heritage property in George, but the owner  decided to withdraw Whispering Oaks  from the market. We were quite heartbroken, but then we found Fairview – and the rest is history…

I am happy to announce that our daughter Nelleke and her husband Michael just bought Whispering Oaks! This all happened very fast and with great  serendipity – at this stage I cannot direct you to the new website yet, but it should be up and running before 1 January 2016. In the meantime they are painting, furnishing, decorating – to hopefully open between Christmas and 1 January sometime.  Initially they will only have three rooms, but eventually there will be 5 rooms offered on B&B basis and 1 self-catering unit. Talking about breakfast – it will be good as Nelleke is a qualified chef and food stylist by profession.

Situated in Caledon Street, centrally located in George, all the Whispering Oaks bedrooms are en-suite, have flat screen televisions, DSTV, queen sized beds with good quality mattresses and white percale linen. The decor can be described as contemporary, Scandinavian style. Guests are within walking distance to many good restaurants, the Botanical Gardens and only a few minute’s drive to the beachfront in Victoria Bay.I think they are going to be my biggest competition in George…
