We stayed in the self catering cottage for the weekend. Very nice, comfortable and beautiful view over a lake from the front verandah. Some of the local birds will come say hello when you are outside. Two bedrooms, one bathroom, open plan living area and kitchen and a fireplace. Braai facilities and free wood. Private entrance. Direct access to the...

Thank you for taking the trouble to write such a detailed review. We greatly value that. We were sorry that the tranquility of Beside Still waters was marred by thoughtless neighbours but we appreciate your honesty in pointing that out and giving us an opportunity to try to raise the standard of our accommodation. Thank you.

Stumbled across this lovely place by accident and were thrilled with location, ambience, friendliness, small caring touches and on top of that: real value for money. Will return and recommend to others.

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...

We had a wonderful weekend at Beside Still Waters! Rod was a lovely host and very helpful. We stayed in the loft and every now and then would notice another charming thought or touch.

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! Our spotless and tastefully decorated B&B unit was designed and decorated with a lot...
