“Absolutely perfect”
Reviewed July 20, 2017 for a stay in May 2016

I have stayed at Wild Almond Cottage twice now and have loved it thoroughly both times!
A storybook cottage in a storybook town, the cottage is cosy and beautiful in both summer and winter.
Dennis and his wife pay great attention to detail to make your stay even more perfect than you hoped.
Your morning views out of your bedroom window make you feel like you have stepped back in time and the whole house reminds you of a book that you read when you were a child.
Everything is within walking distance of the cottage. If you are planning on staying here just make sure that you book in advance as it is very popular. Also be sure to check which days the restaurants are open!

“Perfect Cape Dutch Cottage”
Reviewed March 25, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

McGregor is a beautiful village filled with traditional Cape Dutch architecture with white washed walls and thatched roofs. Wild Almond cottage ticks all the boxes - traditional, comfortable, beautiful and romantic where a good meal can be cooked in the well appointed yet simple kitchen or under the vine covered stoep while classic music plays in the background. This is a place to settle down for a long relaxing stay.

“Perfect in every way”

We could not have asked for a more beautiful cottage in the most incredible setting. The owners were so helpful and attentive from the word go and all the small touches and well thought out cottage was perfect in every way. We had the best family holiday and can highly recommend Wild Almond Cottage. A real gem and we will be back! Thank you so much Dennis and Maureen.

“An exceptionally lovely place”
Reviewed March 14, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We lost our hearts to this welcoming and delightful cottage, in keeping with its surroundings and revealing in its decor a deft artistic hand. We only had two blissful nights and couldn't bring ourselves to stir farther than walking around the village to enjoy breakfasts at Temenos and a stylish dinner at Karoux. How we wish Wild Almond weren't so far from England!

“Utterly Charming Cottage”
Reviewed December 1, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We stayed the weekend at Wild Almond and had the most divine time. The cottage is quaint and charming, spotlessly clean, with remarkable attention to detail by the owner. Every detail is taken care of, and I could not fault it at all. Great location in the village of Mcgregor. I will definitely be back !

“A gem in the winelands”
Reviewed September 14, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Excellent accommodation located in McGregor in the Western Cape. Quiet, peaceful and well appointed for a memorable stay. Fully equipped with attention to detail for self catering. A beautiful little cottage that sleeps four easily in two bedrooms with two bathrooms. Our friendly host Dennis even welcomed us with fresh flowers in the cottage. We only stayed for one night but we would love to stay longer in future.
