My husband, our 3-year old son & myself stayed in the Fish Eagle cottage for 4 days. We were so lucky with the beautiful weather & got to enjoy scenic Tulbagh to the fullest, but were just as grateful for the fireplace on our last night, when it was cold & misty outside, yet cozy & romantic inside.

My sister, niece and I spent 4 days at Blue Crane Cottage, Villa Tarentaal. From the welcome by Brandi and her 2 dogs, we felt immediately at home. The cottage is so tastefully furnished, and we all felt delightfully spoilt and pampered. We had 4 choices for breakfast, which is served in the cottage. All I can say about the... More

We stayed at Villa Tarentaal on a cold winter day. With the wonderful fireplace and friendly staff it was no problem. Beautifully finished accommodation and breakfast served on the verandah....pure bliss.

I spend one night at Villa Tarentaal .The only complaint I have is that the 2nd bedroom does not have a dressing table or mirror. Otherwise very comfortable and a fabulous breakfast is served on you own patio by a couple of smiling and very attentive ladies.

Being very tall it was therefore fantastic to find country accommodation with a king bed and very spacious rooms and shower room and very tasteful decor. Extremely welcoming owners and staff very concerned about their clients well being. The breakfast outside with stunning morning views of the mountains was excellent. Highly recommended...

I would highly recommend Villa Tarentaal to anyone. We stayed in the 2 bedroom cottage. It was a really lovely cottage, but what made it special was all the little touches. There were flowers everywhere, plenty of toiletries and an excellent supply of tea, filter coffee, sugar and milk. The grounds and views from the patio were stunning. The hosts... More
