The most romantic cozy little peice of heaven in SA Everyone should have this place on their bucket list.. The outside shower is so unique and private.. Hot water on your back with a slight breeze overlooking the gorge early in the morning 😍 The view at sunset is and the hospitality of the owners are amazing 👌

Andries and Sue are the most wonderful hosts! We have been here so often now, and will always come back for another visit. The food is delicious, especially the desserts and of course you cannot ignore the amazing views of the Oribi Gorge Valley. Definitely worth a visit!

This establishment has a spectacular view of the gorge and offers fresh homely food. The portions are large so sharing is a great idea. The panini was fresh, the fries homemade and beautifully prepared.
