“Perfect and Peaceful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

Such a lovely place to stay! lovely location & beautiful village. The service from Richard & Julie was fantastic, they went completely out of their way to help make our stay perfect. The kitchen's are also very well equipped, all the pots, pans and tools that you need to cook up a storm each evening! Loved it!

Our stay could not have been nicer...

Very helpful with restaurants nearby failing which because it was a Sunday afternoon and things may not have been open they offered, as was promoted, in their in room guide that the guest were welcome to their vegetable patch.

The property had all of the amenities you would expect and more...much much more.

Beautiful views, kind owner and lovely staff. Great stay, worth a few days.

we dediced to overnight at karoo view, 1 night only, although we were advised to stay 2, what a shame we did not listen! still in the "dorp" but feels like farm, you look onto the mountains and can here the quietness of the "platteland" we had a fire burning as it was cold, we had an oil fin heater, electric blankets, white linen, fully stocked kitchen, very nice little garden that leads along a path to a splash pool for summer, a definate visit and please listen to the owner and stay 2 nights!

Five Star accommodation, and Five Star treatment from the owners. Suites are spacious and contain everything you need for a very comfortable stay. Splash pool and BBQ facilities available - shared by all four suites - which we couldn't use because of bad weather.
