The town was packed with people arrived for the Marathon. I went to the Tourism Office and they suggested me this place as very nice. And indeed it is. I had this room on the main building, once the house of the family, everything was nice, large room, large lounge where i was offered some nice Porto to sip. Being... More

Being on the country side does have its own charm away from the huzzle and buzzle but it might not be to everyone's preference. We surely enjoyed having you as our... More

This is the place for peace and quiet, in the middle of the Klein Karoo with views of the Swartberg Mountains to the north and the Outeniqua Mountains to the south. We stayed in the honeymoon suite, which has only been finished in the last year from the original kitchen in the farmhouse. A massive room and beautifully decorated. Obviously... More

Dear Howard C :) Thank you for this lovely review, you are quite right that in the little Karoo gardening might be a little more challenging than in the areas that has more frequent rain. What helps a lot is the dam we build to enable us to gather water in the rainy season as well as the bore hole... More

We stayed one night in suite 6 which is just amazing (Nov. 2013). Spacious apartment with a stunning view!!! Dinner and breakfast was perfect. We also liked the very professional and personal touch. We for example watched the stars and moon with Rudi's telescope and listened to his extensive knowledge on this subject.
