Carryblaire River Retreat
Ranked #9 of 32 Parys B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 14, 2010

Carryblaire is set on an impossibly beautiful bend on the Vaal River. Dave and Tess have created a haven from the hustle and bustle, and have made it possible to truly relax at a home away from home.

My favourite weekend and even extended long weekend retreat! Whilest the drive cam be slightly rough in a low slung vehicle it is all worth it when you arrive to great hospitality food and views to die for. Wish we weren't so busy so we could go there once a month at least. Nix & Rob

I have stayed at Dave and Tess' resort twice now, once with my family and once alone whilst in the vicinity on business, its a wonderfull retreat with all the mandatory African adventures within a stones throw.

Carryblaire River Retreat is definitely a treat for the soul.
It provides stunning scenery and accommodation for rest and relaxation.
The chef gets 10 out of 10 for cuisine that you want to take your time with.
This experience I would definitely like to share with my close family if possible in future as everyone deserves an opportunity to view nature at its best.

Wish we could have stayed longer and take more stunning photographs !
Thank you for hosting us, will definitely see you again Dave & Tess !
