The most rewarding thing about this business is when a guest contacts you after their stay and they can not thank you enough for the wonderful time they had!

Today is one of those days! Linda Korsten (daughter of Ge’ Korsten) sent the most wonderful e-mail this morning, thanking us for Friday night’s event and she also said that the Celebrities were all so impressed with our establishment that they couldn’t stop talking and that they cannot wait to tell everyone about this gem in Hartbeespoort!


Rubin van Niekerk (Editor of Gay Pages) phoned this morning to thank us once again for their wonderful stay of last week! They attended a wine tasting evening here in Hartbeespoort hosted by Delheim wines and were accompanied by other guests also attending the event.

Ah, the feeling of appreciation and being really thankful for days like these!
In this business it’s the word of mouth that can make you or break you and we are so so blessed that guests are spreading positive news about our guest house to the world!

Celebrities pledge their time to the disabled


Actors from the Movie Liefling , Bobby van Jaarsveld and Marlee vd Merwe and Binnelanders  Paul du Toit with 7de Laan’s Ingrid Paulse (Vanessa) and Hykie Berg from Binnelanders and Survivor on MNET, spent the night at Stirling Manor Boutique Guest House.


Our conference centre were used to do a press release to inform the media of the purpose why the celebreties were visiting Hartbeespoortdam. All of them pledged their time for the charity event Harties Wheelathon for the disabled. For some of us after only a bit of sleep we were up before sunrise to prepare breakfast and to welcome the wonderful clear skies.  The water with the yachts as background from the dining room, were breathtaking and all of us took a few moment to shoak in the colours of the sun and mountain.  In a few minutes Linda Korsten entered the guest house and had everyone up and running and getting breakfast.  A happy and a lot of talking went on at breakfast and everyone was excited about the charity event.  For me it was a humble experience, here in my guest house I had this actors and celebrities, and actually they are just as human as us. We do see them in the media, in the movies and on the television but I think people forget to see the person, family man or woman behind the name.  I am greatfull  for this experience and priviledge for hosting this event. For all that were involved, the South African Police, Silver Orange and my staff, a big thank you to all.
