This is my favorite place for a quick breakaway, not to pricy, for a weekend or even a midweek break.Good value for money. Dinner bed and breakfast rates. Not to far from Pretoria on the N4 in Schoeman's kloof. Log cabins,well equipped are great, and food and hospitality even better. Marian makes the best omelette in South Africa. Nice pool... More

This was a return visit to Old Joe's, making use of the special offer they had on for February, and We are so glad we stayed the extra night. It was such a treat to get away from the city and enjoy the early Autumn rains, while partaking of the great food and hospitality I have come to expect from... More

We were a party of 6 on a bike trip through Mpumalanga. We stayed at Old Joe's for the Saturday night. After a very hot day in bikers clothing the cool swimming pool and a few drinks revitalized us. The food is out of this world and the personal attention by the owners Paul and Mariaan makes you feel at... More

Old Joe's Kaia is a wonderful place, in a wonderful location. The scenery is beautiful, the rooms well-appointed, and the service is superb. Paul and Marian are fantastic and gracious hosts. The food is food completely out of this world: I haven't eaten so well in a very long time. Extremely highly recommended.

My husband I I spent three nights at Old Joe's Kaia for Valentines. This was my second stay at Old Joe's, and I am happy to say that it was even better this time around than when I was there in October. I found everything to be exactly right.

Had a fantastic 3 nights at Old Joes. Food was very good, tasty with lots of different flavours. Paul and Marian were hands on hosts/owners. Service was brilliant. Hiccups by Eskom did not worry them. A recommended trip to Kaap Se Hoop was well worth it. We hope to be back soon.

Old Joe's Kaia is a little haven : unique atmosphere where everything is done with loving care. the food is out of this world, the garden with its labyrinth a sacred space out of time, books to browse through, cards for guidance, smiles and happy faces... what more does one want.

We visited Old Joe's for the Valentine's weekend special and we were not disappointed after reading all the rave reviews. The accommodation is quaint and homely, and we enjoyed the arty touches (ceramics, mirrors, fairy lights) and creative flair. The attention to detail was inspired without being sentimental or cheesy. But the setting and the food is what the big... More

Old Joe's Kaia was well worth the 2400 km round trip we made to attend a Food Photography weekend. This is a wonderful, welcoming place with everything you need to relax and recharge: walks in the fairytale garden & labyrinth, background music as eclectic and fantastic as the decor, an incredible wine list (very unique choices and all from smaller...
