We were awarded this opportunity as a prize fro fundraising. Will surely be back at this beautiful, spacious and very comfortable place of rest!! We were working/relaxing in the chalet but also visited nearby Paarl, Franschhoek and surrounds. Absolutely worthwhile and we will be back Thanks

Had an awesome long weekend away with my work colleagues. The peacefulness, tranquility and atmosphere took us to a land far away from our busy schedules. I would recommend this beautiful place and hosts to anyone that wants to get away for a short or long stay.

Amazing find in the winelands. Great accomodation with well equiped kitchen. It offers a braai with spectacular views. I was really impressed and will recomend this for couples who want to do the winelands and stay over for the night.

Hello Esté, Thank you for staying with us. It was great meeting you and having you for the weekend. I would like to apologize for the first cold night you spend at Paddabult.

Even though we enjoyed our stay and the surroundings are great, I would strongly suggest that Paddabult review the supply of sufficient and quality of especially utensils (cheap plastic utensils), as well as the supply of towels when 4 people are occupying a unit.

As we were flying to the cape for a family wedding we were delighted to find excellent accommodation at such an affordable rate. We were warmly welcomed and although we never spent much time at our unit the beds were very comfortable and it was an ideal base for us.
