This cottage is perfect for nature lovers. It is situated in a very peaceful and relaxing setting. We stayed in the loft apartment which is a lovely fully equip unit including an air conditioner. When we woke up we were surprised with a fresh muffin. Thank you very much for the lovely stay.

Lovely friendly hosts...excellent value...peaceful setting...well furnished, comfortable beds, good hot baths or showers. No TV but that's a plus for us. We've been twice and will go again. We look forward to the freshly baked surprise in a basket with a cloth over on our last morning!

We were travelling between De Hoop and Tsitsitkamma and wanted a break from the driving. This place was beautiful (and great for bird watching)! We stayed in the loft and enjoyed the small details they put in their rooms (fresh flowers, a small vial of milk, fruit bowl). A good night's rest and their great breakfast was just what we... More

Set far away enough from the highway to be wonderfully quiet and live up to its name, this lovely spot has a lot going for it. Warm, helpful and informative host Rod gave us ideas for some slightly off-the-beaten-track walks, which were accessible and very rewarding!

Had a wonderful time during January 2014 staying in the cottage. Friendly, welcoming and relaxing. Unfortunately the weather wasn't the best. So many small items were on hand that other self catering accommodation s do not have. Thank you. Eben, Cherise and Katelynn.
