Quiet, tranquil little place off the beaten track. Came here just to relax and let me old bones rest for a while. Very friendly staff and I love all the other guests with their little rambunctious calves who just graze down by the ponds. If you are in need for a relaxing time, come to Whispering Waters. Epic little hideaway.

My husband and I enjoy visiting this place every year. It is so relaxing. One day i was having guests for lunch and requested another patio table and two chairs. What the staff did was amazing. They brought the table and then proceeds to set it with table clothes and crockery and cutlery. They went the extra mile and my guests were very impressed. This was just one of the small things that the staff do to make ones stay at the place so enjoyable. We can't wait to go back next year.

From the time we checked in to the time we checked out, everything was top class and efficient, with the friendliness of the staff adding to an amazing & restful stay. We stayed in the lovely private log cabin unit, which had the most stunning dam views - what a treat to wake up each morning to the wonderful bird life sounds and the croaking frogs along with the tranquil views of the dam. The unit was beautifully furnished, the linen top class and the kitchen facilities great - we loved the Nespresso machine and the dishwasher! However two suggestions - we were unaware when we booked regarding the 11 (rather steep & narrow) stairs required to get into the unit plus no hand rail was provided. As we took my elderly 89 year old mother along this did hamper her being able to get in & out of the unit and she needed a lot of assistance getting up and down - a simple hand rail would have held enormously. Secondly, our weather was stunning, in fact very hot, with temps over 30 degrees, but unfortunately we were unable to make any use of the lovely wooden deck until about 12 noon each day when shade was provided from the roof. It would be great if two large canvas umbrellas could be provided so that one can sit outside for breakfast etc.. I did read that this was mentioned in a previous review comment and noted by WW but sadly no evidence of implementation - please it really would be a huge plus to this amazing unit and venue. Thank you, we loved our stay and would certainly love to return again.

We stayed 4 nights at Whispering Waters. The lodges are stunning, and have absolutely everything you might require for your stay. Each unit appears to have a built in braai, fireplace, as well as a fully kitted kitchen so we stocked up on groceries and made our own meals for the week. The closest restaurant or shop is about 12km away, with about 3km being gravel road. Entertainment wise there’s a pool with some loungers, putt-putt, giant size chessboard and mountain bikes for hire as well as canoes and walking trails. Finally there’s also trout fishing with fly fishing rods for hire. All and all a very relaxed and tranquil atmosphere away from city life.
