“Glorious! This place has a wonderful feel. Of welcome as well as peace.”
Reviewed April 10, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

The house stands alone, on a rise, in peace, yet you feel in touch with the world here, rather than away from it.
Probably because the house stands directly where the horses graze so peacefully, not behind the fence - you share the hill with them, their hill, and feel part of the community and the land.
It's also because the owner, Liz, has put little things in the house, like biscuits, that are real gifts, that flow from her generosity and happiness to have you there, as people, not an income stream.
We all really enjoyed the feeling - and the house has so much space, inside and out, and so many books, cushions and games, that it felt like a home. It was the first place where we really unwound, feeling more at home, than traveling. And it's not far from a newly opened authentic italian ice-cream ranch, from Plett, or from the stunning beautiful coast - which was also the greatest thing we saw in 1 month up the garden route.

“Pleasant and peaceful Angel's Rest.”
Reviewed March 2, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Our stay for 2 weeks at Angel's Rest was relaxing and very enjoyable. The owners Liz and Hannis couldn't have been more helpful, fresh eggs whenever you needed them and pleasant company when they called. The horses kept us busy supplying them with carrots and in response gave us much pleasure with their company. For a restful and relaxing holiday it is difficult to imagine a better place, the accommodation is first class and the farm has lovely walks either in the open or in the forest.
Would recommend Angel's Rest to anyone.

“AWESOME”
Reviewed February 1, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

A Rustic Gem with all the modern necessities. My family and I enjoyed the peace and serenity. The view is great and the horses that roam freely are so friendly and made the stay even more special. No TV - Suited us great as this was quality time spent with the children. Liz and Hannes perfect hosts that gave us space and privacy.

“Perfect holiday within a holiday”
Reviewed January 2, 2015 for a stay in April 2014

We stayed at Angels Rest for some rest and recuperation between the exciting but arduous safari leg of our holiday and the visiting family leg in Capetown. I meant to submit at review at the time but forgot and was only prompted to do so when I jumped on to Trip Advisor to start planning our next trip.

Enough background. For our purposes Angel's Rest was perfect. The place itself is secluded, peaceful, clean and spacious. We were made very welcome and plied with fresh herbs from the garden and 3 or 4 pots of Home made jam. It was great value and we couldn't have asked for more.

By the way the horses, though very beautiful are pretty inquisitive. We had one virtually comming in through the cabin door!
