Dio Dell'more is your home away from home.

Ted, a Lawyer and Bonsmara Farmer and Louise the owner of two very popular coffee shops, Legato & Gawila in Springs, Gauteng, decided in December 2012 that it was time to plan the next twenty years of their lives. It was a decision made over a glass of wine that they never thought would happen so quickly. Within a few weeks the farms and coffee shops had new owners. Ted told one of his clients about their decision to invest in a guest house, and because Jannie was a regular client at the coffee shops and knew Louise so well, he had the perfect guest house in mind. They have never been to Jeffrey’s Bay and never thought  that they would immediately fall in love with this beautiful Tuscan look Guest House.

Ted, who loves being outdoors, is a keen mountain biker and animal lover.  Ted is now the owner of Ted Groenewald Attorneys and Estate Agency in Jeffrey's Bay, and Louise with her years of experience in coffee shops now also has Suikerbossie Pancakes and Gifts.  Her warm personality welcomes you and she is committed to ensuring that your stay here is an experience you will want to repeat.

Ted and Louise live in a separate home on the smallholding and are always close enough to accommodate guests needs or special requests.

Rooms at Dio Dell'Amore are individually decorated and attention was given to the finest of details. All rooms are equipped with air-conditioning, DSTV, free internet access, mini bar, coffee/tea tray and a personal safe. Rooms have  en-suite bathrooms with a shower and a bath.
