Business Information



La Casita Stanford Self-Catering’s owners Lyn and Mark Krebser hail from Gqeberha (formerly Port Elizabeth) in the Eastern Cape. 

After visiting and falling in love with Stanford, Lyn and Mark decided to relocate to the village. They opened La Casita Self-Catering and an authentic Mexican restaurant and bar, La Cantina Stanford, at the beginning of 2023. 

When asked what they love most about Stanford the couple says the authentic village atmosphere and friendly community won their hearts. The outdoor country landscape is also a bonus, and exploring the countryside when they are not entertaining guests is a repeat adventure!

“We had a lovely stay at La Casita Stanford Self-Catering and the owner Lyn was warm and welcoming. We will be back!”  Bev
“We had a fantastic stay at La Casita Stanford Self-Catering. It is beautifully decorated, vibrant and in the theme of a mini-Mexican hacienda. Comfortable bed in a spacious cottage. Great outdoor area with a braai. The hosts also own the Mexican restaurant next door, and we highly recommend having a meal there. La Cantina has great authentic food, friendly service and delicious frozen margaritas. Our hosts were super friendly, helpful and kind. We are looking forward to a return visit.”  Kalinka
