“Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

I rented 2 houses for my birthday weekend at Aloe Ridge and it was beyond expectation. From check in to check out everything about this place was perfect. The houses are beautiful inside and very well equipped. The views from the houses are breath taking and the sound of the river in the background is music to the ears. The staff is friendly and very helpful. I cannot wait to visit Aloe Ridge again!!! Thank you Theunis and everyone at Felix Unite for an unforgettable weekend away! Tip: The gravel road leading to Aloe Ridge is not very sports car friendly so go in your 4x4 or utility vehicle if possible.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

My wife and I spent the long weekend in June at the Kilimanjaro house - and what an experience.

Although a 4x4 would probably get there easier, we did eventually get there with my Corolla :)
Beautiful thatch roof house, wooden floors, private deck and spectacular views of the Breede river awaited. Although the group provides a great assortment of adventure (river rafting, foefie slide, climbing wall, ect.) we decided to stay indoors and enjoy the indoor fireplace. A stack of wood, dishwasher, DSTV, Braai are on the deck and a lot of space made for a wonderful weekend. The self made concrete bath did not really contain the heat of the hot water, but hey - it looks great. It could do with a proper Queen sized bed instead of the 2 attached single bed.

Perfect place for a couples breakaway or to get the family or friends away from the city. It honestly felt like it was just us and nature as we were not once bothered by anyone. We will definitely be back. Thanks guys
