A warm welcome, clean and neat accommodation with added touches and delicious home cooked food are just three of the wonderful things that made our stay at Rolbaken so special. Both Mary and Dick went out of their way to ensure our stay was a memorable one. Their farm is beautiful and the history and knowledge they can share with...

What a great start to our honeymoon! We were greeted by warm-hearted people as if we were family. We were spoiled with a lovely room, champagne and a very special gift. Mary told us all about the history of Rolbaken and invited us for a stroll to the dam to watch the sunset. Dick told us all about their future...

Everything at this place is delightful. When driving up an, what seemed like endless, gravel road and not seeing a sole, we arrived at Rolbaken - it is exactly as the photos show, it is set in beautiful landscape, you get the whole house to lounge about in and if you allow them (which I strongly recommend) the owners Dick...

The Pretorius and Coetzee families of Port Elizabeth travelled to the area to run the Meiringspoort Half Marathon. My wife, Adri, has an amazing ability to find interesting places for holidays and short breaks and this was no exception. Dick and Mary are interesting and very generous hosts. The house is perfect for more than one couple and children and...

We arrived at Rolbaken in the dark and cold,but were soon revitalised by the warm welcome by Dick and Mary. Mary had made a pan of soup just in case we were hungry, and offered us a warm welcome. We had the house all to ourselves, after spening an hour chatting to our hosts. What fascinating people they are and...

We decided on a whim to stay for a night at Rolbaken to break up our drive from Plettenberg Bay to Oudtshoorn, and it turned out to be one of the the highlights of our three week trip to South Africa. Completely off the beaten track, in fact the journey to get there over the dirt tracks was quite an...

Rolbaken was just the place for us - We had a wonderful week! We were two adults with four children and noone wanted to go home at the end of the holiday. The children had opportunity to interact with the animals (sheep, dogs, donkeys, chickens etc), ride bicycles freely, pick vegetables for their supper and make as much noise as...

We stayed here for 3 nights in early April. It was during the KKNK Festival in Oudtshoorn and we were glad we had booked well in advance. We travelled into the area via the beautiful route R62 and Oudtshoorn was heaving with people. The farm and accommodation is a little way out of Oudtshoorn and the final 20km is along...

We stayed in Rolbaken in January this year. It was the fourth place of nine that we stayed in on our honeymoon in South Africa, and it was certainly the most memorable.
