“Van den Heever Fam. Stay Over”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

My hushand, myself and daughter had such a pleasant stay at Thylitshia Villa. The room was immaculate and the bathroom spacious.
The owners, Lollies and Elriza are such friendly and warm people and made us feel at home from the moment we arrived.The food was excellent. I would recommend Thylitshia to anyone looking to be spoiled and treated 5 star. We will definitely visit again when we in the area.Thanks again for a lovely stay.

My wife and I decided to experience KKNK in April . We were so lucky to get a room at Thylitshia Guesthouse! What an experience! The fresh smell of koffee in the most beautiful house in the Karoo. Our friendly hosts Lollies and Elriza made us feel as if we were at our own house. We enjoyed freshly baked Pitza in the warm living room chatting away as if we were old friends. The Karoo lamb chops were amaizing and I still miss the breakfast with the houme made Boere wors.
Will I visit them again? YES I will and I hope my room is booked for next year April to enjoy there warm hospitality again.

My husband and I needed a break and stayed at Thylitshia for 3 nights - we were spoilt beyond imagine and had a wonderful, refreshing time. Lollies and Elriza are the most amazing hosts and made absolutely sure we felt welcome all the time. Spotlessly clean and beautiful rooms complimented the 5 course dinners. Make sure you have time to relax at the Villa - its is so beautifully decorated and there is much to see! You will not want to leave! Thank you both!

Room Tip: My favourite is room 2 with an African theme!

I where there with my family.
The new owners made a great job in hospitality. The rooms are nice furnished and clean.
The hole estate is very cultivated.
I special advise the dinner it was delicious and also the self made sausages from Lollies are advisable.

Me and my family decided to stop over again at Thylitshia Villa Country Guesthouse. This time Lollies and Elriza accommodated us in the suite next to the braai area. What a lovely room we got once again, filled with beautiful decorations and furniture as well as a en-suite bathroom and a television. The hosts spoilt their guests to a lovely traditional braai outside while everybody sat down around the fireplace and enjoying the atmosphere. The next morning we enjoyed a nice breakfast after which we departed again. We thank you for your warmth and hospitality and we are really looking forward in visiting again!

We stayed at Thylitshia's for 2 days during the KKNK festival beginning of April, arriving in this wonderful oasis after a long day of driving through the Karoo. Lollies & Elriza gave us a very personal and warm welcome and we immediately felt at ease. This guesthouse and its gardens are a real gem, shaped to Elriza's style & taste. The food, diner and breakfast, were excellent (try the ostrich filet). The atmosphere is super-relaxed. Highly recommended!

I stayed here with my wife and two children. We all felt truly welcomed and relaxed. Lollies and Elriza were excellent hosts, we were made to feel part of their family. We couldn't recommend this villa any more highly. Thanks for looking after us, The McClures
