We just got back from a two night getaway at this rustic property, lovely comfortable bed, fireplace in the lounge, views forever down the valley from a large patio. A filling farmhouse breakfast each day served by the friendly hostess of the manor, with a freshly baked loaf of bread and prickly pear jam. Rooms were comfy and a tv... More

For a fascinating and pleasant experience of how our ancestors have lived, this is the perfect address! An old mission bell welcomes you at the teak front door that comes from Cape Governor Simon van der Stel´s hunting lodge! (dating back to the 1600s) The Manor house where you'll have breakfast is immaculately decorated with antique furniture and other pieces... More

We booked into Mietas Cottage which was very adequate. The cottages date back some years, and are quaint, but could do with a little bit of and upgrade. Shower floor for example. Obviously you dont want to loose the Cape Dutch influence, but I would have preferred to know that the traffic from the road (which was extremely busy) would... More

We stayed here 2 nights whilst visiting the Swartberg Pass and The Hell. It is an acquired taste, only because there are no TV in the rooms and no children under12. But that is exactly what we were looking for. Rooms are comfy, clean and lovely and cool. Breakfast is beautiful with freshly baked bread and home made jams. Service... More

Just had one night here en route to Prince Albert. Lovely and unusual rooms and very friendly owner. Breakfast was excellent. If we are back in this area next year will definitely spend a night or two.

This is an absolutely divine spot just five minutes from Oudtshoorn. We had the Hendrik 'z'n huisje room which had a double bedroom/living room space with a fireplace and two sofas. A nice sized bathroom with a wonderful shower. The attention to detail, from a little flower posey in the room to the cold spring water in the mini fridge... More

Booked 3 nights on our way back from Cape family to Jozi's. We were the only guests so it was relaxing and peaceful. We enjoyed the home made bread and breakfast was of top class. Learned so much history and enjoyed a day outing to the hel, and a great sand road towards the waterfall and De Rust, sure worth... More

We booked the two rooms at Mieta se Huisie. Both were very clean, comfortable, and the old-world decor is so charming. Peach-floor in the one room is quite a massage / punishment on the bare feet - but oh so beautiful! Marojean is a star - so friendly and helpful, and her attention to our needs were much appreciated.

We were in a group of 11, touring South Africa on motorcycles, and stayed here for two nights in mid November 2012. Marojéan & JP made us feel especially welcome. By arrangement, they provided a Karoo roast lamb dinner in the homestead on our first night – and it was fabulous. On the next night we self-catered a braai (with... More
