Warmly received by our host and directed to our self catering cottage at twin Springs. Fantastic big secluded rustic house sleeping 8. If you are looking for peace with no disturbance situated outside Underberg, I will recommend this. It is rustic but it is peace for the soul. Take a short hike up the mountain and find the spring close...

Booked the 10 sleeper, which was spacious, well organized, awesome log cabin feel... The owners are friendly and very helpful..Directions to the place could be a little better. Seemed like all units had a satellite dish, so carry your DSTV decoders and a portable TV if you have one, should you be a TV junkie, only noticed it once I...

I have visited with friends, but unfortunately don't remember the name of the house we stayed in😊 it was located higher than others, on top of a small hill and slept 10 people. Anyway... beautiful location with stunning views! Great, peaceful evenings under beautiful stars (first time to see Milky Way, so it'll stay in my heart forever!) and wonderful...

What an amazing place, our family stayed in Fish Eagle Chalet for the Easter weekend. The chalet is well appointed and comfortable with everything you need. The view from each the kitchen over the river is stunning. The restore was full but each chalet is situated in such a way that you don't even hear your neighbors. If you don't...

Great accommodation with river, mountain and farm views. It was very chilly but the fireplace indoors kept us toasty. We caught a fish in the dam on the property. The location was central to lots of attractions. The general property needs a little more maintenance or tlc but maybe it comes to life in summer. Guesthouse managers were friendly. Apparently...

We were there for 5 days with family and friends. The scenery in the berg is beautiful, and we had an awesome drive up Sani Pass. We did a bit of fishing, trail running, hiking and tubing down the river, as well as a round of golf at the Underberg CC. The accommodation is comfortable, but basic. The house decor...

Though the couple who's responsible there is very friendly, the view is great, the place is very basic and outdated. We were on a trip in South Africa for three and a half weeks and the Eagle Rock was the worst accomodation: dirty, basic and outdated. Maybe its a matter of great expectations but this lodge did not really satisfy...
