|After having sailed the high seas for years, Jok?(pronounced Yoka) and Stewart have dropped anchor in Hout Bay some years ago, and soon started building their home in lush Baviaanskloof overlooking the mountains and sea. Jok? having run charters in the Caribbean as well as being an interior designer by trade, forever itching to put her creative spirit to use, and Stewart soon found another even better piece of land and decided to build another house that turned out to be a guesthouse par excellence.|
in numerous interior magazines for its simple and classic design has not been
Frogg's Leap only drawcard - no this little guesthouse has gained its reputation mainly
through word of mouth ( like the best kept little secret..) and the only advertsing ever
done was in the Portfolio Guide of Retreats.
So.... what makes it so special? Could it be the mouthwatering breakfasts served at a 12 seater dining table (manufactured by Stewart's furniture manufacturing business) ... or the fact that after having spent a couple of days you don't leave as a guest but as a friend who is already looking forward to the next return. Or it might have been that excursion on the back of Stewart's pick-up truck to the evening concert on Sunday night on the lawns of Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden, accompanied by this scrumptious picnic basket that Jok?had packed. You cannot really put your finger on it.. all you know is that your stay at Frogg's Leap was something special.
Here is also the largest frog collection in the Southern Hemisphere, which past guests have either brought or send to us over the years. (none alive though!!)
