We booked two cottages for our family (one adult and one kid per cottage) over the school holidays. The place was next to perfect for our needs. The setting was beautiful - the resident Knysna Loerie was a bonus. The cottages were simple and elegant (amazing bathrooms) with very simple kitchen facilities, but a good braai per cottage and a fully equipped communal kitchen. We loved the pool and the games room. Unfortunately when we were there the rowing boat was broken, so we couldn't mess around on the vlei, but the Estate was close enough to Sedgefield, Wilderness and hiking trails that that hardly mattered. With just five cottages and the main house, the place didn't feel crowded even when fully occupied. If you want to be just a little off the beaten track, but still close enough to towns, then this is the place for you.

Room Tip: We asked if we could have two cottages next to each other and they found a way. Great service.

This was the first time we stayed at Swartvlei. I have already provisionally booked the same space for the same time next year. We had a very pleasant break from the hustle & bustle of city life. We celebrated New Year with family also staying at Swartvlei and family from the nearby SanParks resort at the Estate with a braai into the early ours of Jan, with no disturbance to any other guests. Thank you Naomi, for your excellent hospitality, (nothing was too much for this pregnant lady), very much appreciated. KItchen and leisure facilities were also good. Great place for peace & quiet and recharging your batteries after a hard year, or drive to nearby beaches for more activity. Thank you again, Naomi.

Absolutely stunning venue and people running Swartvlei. Friendly and inviting environment close enough to everything you could need but removed enough to be peaceful. Left feeling rested even after a business trip. Would definitely stay again & can highly recommend!
