We had the whole house reserved for ourselves. It is in the style of a farmers house in a very quiet area of Kanoneiland (about 30 km from Upington). The house has 5 bedrooms with 3 bedrooms en-suite. The bedding is soft and white percale. There is a large stoep (veranda) which we enjoyed while drinking tea and cofee. One has to travel 5km dirt road but it was worth it for this gem. There is a kitchen with a hotplate/microwave/fridge and built in braai. We made our own suppers there. Take your walking shoes and explore. Behind the house is the area where grapes are dried in the sun and around you are winyards and a canal used for irrigation. All the people one see greets you and are friendly. The house has a unique way of cooling with a water system on the roof.
Thea and Joa (owners) are so friendly and helpful and the lovely paintings of Joa is found throughout the house. The house is servecided each day.
Trully an unique experience and a wonderful stay.
