we were received like 'long expected friends' although we arrived without any booking- by chance. We were pleasantly surprised by the fine accomodation, both the house itself as well as the location in the well kept and quiet garden. The breakfast was fantastic with all home made productes ( best croiants in the world) - a place to come back...

Very friendly, helpful owners and a very welcome break for some wary riders on a motor bike tour. Comfortable and well appointed rooms. Pool and braai area are an excellent facility with shops practically on the doorstep. Highly recommended for anyone touring on Route 62!!

My wife and I had a 1 night stopover in De Rust on our way from Joburg to Hermanus. We had never visited De Rust before and had booked House Martin through the internet. We arrived just after 14.00 and found everything was ready and waiting for us. On arrival we received a friendly welcome and were shown around the...

The friendly owners have done a wonderful job renovating and updating this property. The rooms were large and clean with a comfortable bed and AC. A continental breakfast is provided in the morning. De Rust is a small village and at the time of our visit there were not many choices of places for an evening meal. De Rust is...

This was a wonderful stopover on our way to Cape Town from Port Elizabeth. We were taking the Karoo route to avoid all the Christmas traffic on the Garden Route. The place was very clean, beds comfy and the facilities looked very well maintained. As part of our experience we were treated to a delicious traditional dinner and breakfast. The...

Stayed for 2 nights here to explore the area and we could not have been made more welcome by Theresa and Jan. Our room was spacious and spotlessly clean with very efficient air conditioning. The gardens and pool area are tranquil and relaxing. Delicious homemade quiche for breakfast. On Jan's recommendation we drove over the Meringspoort pass and back over...

We had a very comfortable and peaceful stay in a lovely bedroom, and our hosts were exceptionally welcoming and helpful. There is proper ground coffee provided in the bedrooms, with a plunger - enough to make me choose one guesthouse over another. There were lovely birds in the garden, including a weaver making his nest in a tree a few...

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our lodge. We are always delighted with positive comments, but even more delighted if customers suggest some improvements. No doubt that we will attend to the air-conditioning. Thanks also for your patience during the water crisis. Kind regards Theresa
