Karin and her super friendly staff made us feel like home at this magical place with the addition to the amazing botanical garden and Table Mountain views, the absolutely incredible food we got served, the cozy comfortable and beautiful indoor spaces as well the personal touch they all put in to make this an unforgettable experience. Welgemeend feels like you are on a vineyard near Stellenbosch, so lush and beautifully green that you forget you are in a big city. I will truly miss this place but look forward to coming back one day. Thanks to all that helped to turn our work retreat into the greatest vacation!

Hi Karin,

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for the luncheon you provided for the Wynberg Girls High School 1964 Matrics 50th Reunion.

From the tasty canapés, the delicious main course, to the chocolate brownies and coffee it was all wonderful!

You willingly coped with our requests and varying attendance numbers. You made our celebration a memorable occasion.

Best wishes, Rene’ Denoon and the organising committee members.

Dear Karin,

Thank you for your good wishes.   I intended calling you once the family gatherings were over to tell  you how much I appreciate all you put into Sunday. It was my dream played out and more,  and so much of it was due to you: the way you interpreted  my wishes, , your reassuring presence throughout and the people you choose to work with ,  Annelize, the ‘flower lady’ and  your waiters.  The  decor wowed the crowd and pics went all over the world in minutes.

With thanks from the family and  warm regards,

Dearest Karin and Team,

Thank you so much for allowing us to host our Dads 70th birthday event at your most stunning venue. With your help and special deal, we could never have chosen a more fitting venue for his birthday. My dad was overwhelmed.

Really with your help and ease it was so stress free …thanks for that. You  made the whole experience a pleasure for our friends and family. Best service I received and will always recommend your venue going forward. The tables looked really beautiful and ready. The waiters were pleasant and helpful. As well as all your staff.

It felt like you allowed us into your home….with exceptional art pieces delicately featuring in every room definitely a memorable moment,  I am sure your art exhibition continues to be a success. And I wish you well going forward with your business. Your personal attention and service was impeccable and greatly appreciated.

Lots of good health and blessings always Rene and Wendy
