Reviewed January 17, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

This is a very nice nature place. Horses, dogs and chickens around in a valley close to Hermanus. Great bathtub and very nice hosts!

“Yes, we'll come back!”
Reviewed August 26, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Let's start with some words of warning: that rooster has to crow for hours in the morning, the WiFi signal is super weak and the water is brown (yet drinkable). Done. About the assets, it is a charming, romantic and cozy cottage right next to Russell Hamilton vineyards. You will be surrounded by horses, chicken, dogs, ducks and we even had the pleasure of seeing Luna, Lela, Grace and Kate, four wonderful puppies, along with their mother and sister. We loved it there, relaxing at night next to the fire, chatting with Liane the owner and using the cottage as our base to discover Hermanus and the surrounding. We will come back, that's for sure. Of all the places we stayed at during our journey in Western Cape, this was the most special. Hard to talk about it without feeling like we should return right now.
