This farm home is a little off the beaten path and includes driving a couple of miles down a gravel road, but you won't regret staying with this interesting couple. They provided an excellent beef filet dinner with all the trimmings and shared stories of their life in South Africa. The room was large and comfortable with an amazing exposed... More

This guesthouse is on a farm overlooking mountains and valleys in a peaceful and quiet setting a couple of km outside Kokstad. We were welcomed by our friendly hosts who helped with luggage and directed us to our rooms. The rooms were spacious with en-suite bathrooms. Clean and fresh with special beds for the smaller children. (Small children stay free.)... More

We met the other guests over a very convivial evening. I can thoroughly recommend a stay here. You... More

Staying two nights at Peacehaven was a wonderful choice for us. Our hosts went above and beyond - even keeping a delicious dinner warm for us at 11pm when we finally arrived from Johannesburg. The rooms are clean, spacious and quite delightful. The food was scrumptious. The gardens were amazing - full compliments to the gardener. All in all, a... More

Great stopover just off the N2 near Kokstad, having driven from Amakhali game reserve near PE we needed a comfortable quiet location to relax after a 10hour drive & Peacehaven gave us exactly that. A warm welcome , a comfortable room, superb dinner followed by an equally superb breakfast the following morning. Give our love to George [ golden retriever... More

A B&B with great and super helpful hosts, it's THE place to stay on a road trip going through the area. Give it's remote location, secure gate, and my over imaginative, I've-watched-too-many-suspence/horror-movies mind, at first I was quite hesitant to stay here. But by golly, it's fantastic! Delicious dinner and breakfast too! Do not think twice about staying here!!

We stayed here on our way to Umngazi River at Port St Johns. The rooms are comfortable with beautiful white linens. The children loved running around on the farm and seeing all the farm animals. The dinner and breakfast was devine! Truly a haven for the weary traveller!

We were a group of 7men sleeping at Peacehaven for 3 nights during a 3yearly bible blitz for the area schools. Owners James and Pat are special people which really manage to make you feel welcome. It was in the middle of our 3500km road trip and when we arrived there we had a lot of traditional "padkos" left. Pat... More

We stayed for one night during a 34 night road trip, so this review is relatively objective. Well, what a find in this area - wish we could have stayed for another night or so. Relatively easily found in a superb tranquil rural location. The owners were not on site when we arrived, but the staff made us very welcome... More
