Lovely, spacious honeymoon cottage. Well equipped. The property is beautifully maintained with a stunning, short walk through the indigenous forest and lovely views over a small dam. The air is fresh and one feels very safe.

Walli and Rainer are great hosts. The accommodation is very clean, beautiful and also very close to Graskop. The breakfast is really good as well. Next time we visit Graskop we definitely stay there again.

We stayed one night after the Panorama Route trip. We had a two bedroom chalet, which is cozy and clean with a full kitchen. The garden is neat and beautiful. We found it is of great value for money: A place so beautiful but the price is so low. PS: the cherry tomato in the garden is delicious!

Our stay was very pleasant, and was a unique experience as everything is very European. The cottage we stayed in was very spacious, equipped with everything one would need. Breakfast was yummy with some different things to try: homemade pretzels, game cold meats. I feel that it would be a very nice place to go in Winter, with the place...
