Great setting and great food with friendly hosts and an interesting story. Well worth a visit
4 weeks ago was my first visit and we had been looking for a place to eat when we came across it on google search. The word for my experience there is astounding.It was such an incredible place from the very entrance to the exit. Sitting down for lunch at the pool side with those staggering large pillars made me feel like i was transported to Italy or a countryside in France. No exaggeration they place is amazing and if you love romantic settings or want to reconnect with nature this is the place to go to. Stephan and Howard along with Ignatia were so inviting that you feel like you dining with friends more than being patrons at a restaurant. They are incredible people and when they say it is an exotic nursery be prepared for an experience. Howard is so knowledgeable about his plants and even though i am an avid gardener i was put to shame by everything he knows. This is a place to be and visit and i am waiting to try out their accommodation but i will let you know this ...If you want to meet great people and have good laughs then visit them and you will become guests for life. My husband and i will definitely be making reservations for our weekly sunday dates there. So give it a try and you will never regret it. The food is great and try the potato soup , it is finger licking good. Thanks Stephan and Howard for a great time

Most beautiful, tranquil, it is the most peaceful place to be. The management and staff are helpful and friendly. I was honoured to display my gifting as I love doing decor and catering. The meal served was super and professionally presenting. I am recommending the venue to friends and family and hope to see you soon. With kind regards Ada McLeod
Stephen van Belkum sweetheart u are an amazing person. We thought searching for a matric dance outfit would be a nightmare and many trips to far away places. Instead U took the stress away and designed Hayley a master piece. We r so in love with this design and cant wait to share it with the world on the day. Thank u from the Knox family.

Great food!! Fabulous tour of the nursery and very helpful advice!!
excellent service, quick response and always willing to help
We had a wonderful evening at Stephward Estate -ate smoked salmon starter with Syephen's delicious homemade bread, oxtail and rack of lamb for mains and a delicious boozy berry crepe and ice cream for dessert. The oxtail was delicious and beautifully tender -the meat fell off bones. My husband's lamb had an interesting blend of spices -such a nice change from the usual rosemary and garlic. Stephen (chef ) hinted at 38 spices in his unique blend. We shared the boozy berry crepes and ice cream and have no regrets! Host Howard was affable and had some interesting stories to share about the place, it's history and the wonderful selection of "objets " on display. I do hope we can return in daylight and enjoy the exotic nursery and the exterior setting as much as we enjoyed the interior. This looks like an amazing occasion venue too.
We had the most amazing Valentines dinner - amazing food and incredible setting cannot wait ro see it durning the day Thank you to the amazing Owners and hosts.
We were visiting from Johannesburg and we found them online. My mom has been searching for Lobster claw plants for over 40 years since she left Rhodesia. We were given the tour and it was very difficult to choose only a few to take back home. Excellent information and advice given. Looking forward to seeing our blooms and will definitely be ordering more online.
Most awesome, tranquil place to be, with STYLE! For all your occasions, wether it be a wedding, birthday party, or just something to eat, they are pulling out all the stops to make your visit unforgettable!
We went to Stephward Estate and spent the most enjoyable time with two excellent hosts. Thank you guys for your hospitality, you have built an amazing place. The food was excellent, the gardens and nursery exquisite. We did not want to leave, but will soon return.
Once again Stephen, amazed us with his design talent. This man has magic hands its unbelievable what he can do with fabric and a simple idea. Place yourself in his hands, trust him and I guarantee you he always exceeds expectations. He designed my daughter Monnique's matric farewell dress and made her the talk of the town and three years later her wedding dress again he made what could have been stressful a breeze. This time round he also made my Queen Quinn shine with a perfect outfit and made me look respectable. You have again outdone yourself. Thank you Thank you Thank you. On top of all the above Stephward Estate was the perfect wedding venue, tranquil and exotic and the catering and service was world class. Stephan and Howard nothing but experts. I will gladly keep talking about what they have done for us for years to come. You don't just do events you create memories
Fantastic tour of the exotic orchids and plants.
Got some great plants and managed to get their last Jade Vine. Can't wait for it to grow.
Can highly recommend a visit. We did not eat as time did not allow but will be back.
Just want to thank Stephen and Howard from Stephward Estate for making our wedding day so special. Beautiful venue, decor and flowers, and Stephen absolutely made my dream wedding dress into a reality! Will highly recommend Stephward Estate to any wedding couple.
Spent an amazing morning exploring the exotic plants at Stephward Estates. Such an enriching experience! I now know that the antelope orchid is my favourite orchid and also that the antelope orchid exists, something I didn't know before this morning.
Cherry on top was the excellent hospitality by Stephen and Howard. So impressed!
What a fantastic experience! I am hooked on orchids for life! Thank you
