We stayed in one of the new family units, which are very nicely decorated, spacious, clean and luxurious. The B&B is situated in the middle of nowhere, but this was just right for us seeking some relaxation on the way to the coast. The patio had nice views of the fields and green hills. As there are no restaurants in... More

I liked the remote location, the view and the walks around the farm. Not to forget the friendliness, the food and the perfect taste of choosing the interiour of the rooms, wich are equipped with all I need for my stay. I definitely come back.

Wow....that was just amazing The passion that Gudrun and Johan have with "Dusk to Dawn" is just the best. We stayed two Friday to Saturday nights in a row in March 2014. On our way to the KZN coast from Joburg we wanted to stay over close to Piet Retief, and what we found was so good that we decided... More

You will not be disappointed here. We had Robin's Nest – a superbly fitted and furnished self catering unit view lovely views over the gardens and farmland. Meals are in the central dining room – dinners are a set menu but with a choice of 2 for the main course. We found the dining room a little formal – each... More

Stunning location with beautiful views. The food was delicious, plentiful and excellent value for money. G & J made us feel so welcome. We travelled with our 6 month old baby and nothing was too much trouble. We spent only 2 nights there - we were in SA for two and half weeks travelling around to very different spots and... More

We were travelling from Johannesburg Airport to KZN to start an adventure holiday and booked one night at Dusk to Dawn to break the journey. How we regretted that we were only there for one night. We were made to feel at home from the word go, with a friendly welcome, a personal introduction to our beautiful rooms, immediately being... More

We came for the night on our way to the Kruger and were extremely impressed with our accommodation and the service. The property is beautiful with plenty of animals and greenery and our cottage was lovely. The breakfast in the morning was also fantastic. Thank you to Gudrun and Johann for the fabulous stay :) Ps - the dogs were... More

Coming from the city and having visited and stayed on numerous farms of friends and family in South Africa, I was a bit sceptical when it came to actually holidaying on a working farm as a B&B guest. Also very sceptical of long bumpy dirt farm roads and potholes since I’m driving a small Volkswagen Golf with passengers and luggage.... More

Ideally located between Jo’burg or Kuger and the sights of KwaZulu Natal, Dusk to Dawn is a beautiful farmstead well worth the drive up a dirt track road. Everything has been designed and finished with immaculate care, although the décor can be a little twee, as are the large number of notices with light-hearted or inspirational thoughts. Rooms are luxuriously... More
