We almost said everything in above title! Except the one other real great "feature" of the GH: Dion! Dion - big smiles - always ready to help - very knowledgeable - great story teller and the VERY best: an outstanding chef. We stayed 3 nights and we had 3 different b/f and 3 different dinners - all fresh products/home made... More

We really enjoyed our stay. Very beautifully arranged rooms. It was very cold, but we got an extra electric stove and it inmediately got cosy. The meals were creative and very tasty. Hosts took us to a sundowner to the quiver tree forest in Kenhard. A marvellous experience.

We like to stop over on the way to the Kgalagadi Transfrontier park. An oasis in the green Kalahari. Well appointed luxury accommodation. Good food. Friendly service. Spent two nights this time. We did a day trip to Augrabies Falls.

The Guesthouse is really and Old farm turned into a guesthouse and done so very tastefully. The rooms are Large and well-appointed and so is the garden which holds Malachite Kingfisher and Orange River White-eye. The host are very friendly and helpful and the food was some of the best we have had in South Africa.

Upon arrival received a warm welcome from Dion The rooms are beautiful with excellent attention to detail with the little things too.

What a stunning place, hidden away from traffic & noise, nestled on the outskirt of a tiny farmers village but only minutes away from the main road Upington - Keimos. It was the perfect place to get used to civilisation again after 8 days in the Kgalagadi. Beautiful, spacious rooms, great detail in decoration and furnished with love. A total... More

A warm welcome from Dion and the dogs set the tone of what turned out to be a wondeful stop over. The Vinyard lodge and gardens were in excellent condition and we spent time exploring the grounds, looking at the plants, flowers and birds that visited the garden. Our room was a bit cold lack of direct sun, but the... More
