On our property we currently have 4 very unique rustic style bush cottages. Two of our boma style enclosures boast 2 bedrooms and the other two have 1 bedroom. The overall theme of the retreat focusses on nature and the environment; as a result our bushscape is very natural and changes with the seasons.

I have stayed here for business on multiple occasions. The staff are always exemplary and go out of their way to help, and Christine is very accommodating. The rooms are superb and the outside braai areas are great after a day of work.

I booked my stay at Iris Retreat before SA went into lockdown. I needed to change my dates three times and Christine accommodated me every single time with friendly professionalism. When we finally arrived many months later, we were amazed by how beautiful our little hideaway cottage was. The staff puts so much care into making your stay memorable, from lighting candles around the cabin in the evening to create a romantic atmosphere, to bringing you fresh towels and helping you carry your bags. The cabin was clean and practical for our two night's stay. Just around the corner is beautiful hiking trails at Vergenoeg, the van Galens cheese farm, horse riding, and many more activities nearby. We loved our stay and will definitely visit again!

Absolutely perfect, romantically hidden between trees are lovely self-catering cottages and a nice swimming pool area. Great staff and excellent spa facilities (we did the couples night treatment and stayed over).

We are absolutely in love with this place. The most romantic hidden gem ever. Christine and Simon bent over backwards to make sure everything was 200% perfect for our stay. The spoils were fantastic. Every effort was made to make this the best weekend ever. We will definitely be back.

Awesome place for alone time. In the heart of the wilderness. Kettle braai, Boma, wooden cabin, fireplace. A place were you can really say that all your tick box's will be checked. For new romance or to rekindle your love. A host that is warm and loving. Christine goes out of her way to make her guests feel at home. More pictures coming soon
