“13th Stay - So that must tell you something!!!!!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

As always, it was a relaxing holiday, listen to the birds, watch the grass grow, walk the dogs & have a few beers in a friendly & quiet atmosphere. We might just add that we will be spending this New Year there with our friends. Love it!!!

We had such an awesome time at Stone Hill with our 2 beagle kids. Caroline and Mark are such amazing hosts. The cottages have everything you need and is nice and clean. We went for walks with the dogs and they really enjoyed it a lot! We will be going back soon! - Monique, Richard, Eddie & Nina

The owners clearly try hard, but the venue is very average. There is not much to do there, the pool is TINY and there is a walking trail, but it's basically an ex cattle farm on a flat piece of ground.

We had a very relaxing stay at stone hill for the weekend in the Jacaranda cottage. We received a very warm welcome from our host, Caroline and she was more than happy to help us with anything through the weekend. The cottage was well equipped and very comfortable and clean. We had a delicious champagne picnic and farm baked bread and both are definitely recommended. The 5 km walk around the property gave us some good exercise and fresh air outside of the city. The only downside of the stay was that the pool was a bit small. We had a great weekend and would definitely recommend.

We had a lovely time. The weather was terrible, but the accommodation and surroundings was so good that we didn't mind staying indoors. Loved the indoor fire place and daily visits from the ponies. Had a large variety of bird species visit as well. Had a great time.

This was our second visit to Stone Hill (we jokingly called it Cone-hill this time because our puppy had an op and was wearing a cone, hehe).

We returned because we enjoyed our first visit so much and were again not disappointed. Your hosts here are so graceful and accommodating. You also get to take a little piece of Stone Hill home with you, which we keep on our kitchen counter as a reminder of the great times we've had there.

The facilities are exceptional - kitted out to the T. Our Shar Pei was the happiest puppy on earth with the walks we took him on. There is so much freedom here for puppy and parents alike.

During the winter we loved the fireplace inside and this time around the spring rain was uplifting for the soul.

Each unit we've been in was comfortable and we enjoyed making our potjies and braais. Be warned that the tv is the smallest you've ever seen.. But you shouldn't be there to watch tv!

The attention to detail is exceptional.. Fire extinguishers (you are in the bushveld!), disposable razors, branded toiletries, kitchen utensils, charcoal and wood for sale, comfortable bedding etc. Exceptional!

Treat this venue with the respect it deserves.. Bring your doggy's bed and blankies to keep it all clean and comfortable.

See you soon Caroline & Mark

Stone H ill is always a special place to vist, it is peaceful and allows one to "check out of the world" for while! Outsanding hosts in Caroline and Mark, also being able to take dogs is such a bonus.
