“Lovely getaway”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

We stayed in Coetzer House at River Edge and had an absolutely fantastic time. It's a fairly short drive from Cape Town into nature. We thoroughly enjoyed boating down the river, catching some bass, braai'ing and spending some time in the jacuzzi. It's a fantastic place for dogs so take yours along, it'll be in heaven.

If you're just looking for a place fairly close to home, inexpensive and in nature, then this place is worth the stay.

Room Tip: Coetzer House experiences some noise and swearing from farm worker children swimming in the river.

We appreciate your review. So glad you and your friends enjoyed the break away as mentioned in "weekend away with friends" review. You experienced the same hick-up with the farm kids that weekend. Be assured that their behaviour were addressed and that this was an isolated occurrence. We respect our guests privacy and no children are allowed to bother guests. Loose roof plate was fixed. Thanks for letting us know about that!!

Spent two nights in Joubert house with my friend and we had a fabulous time. The rustic cottage was equipped with everything we needed and more! The views are spectacular and the owner of the farm is friendly and welcoming with a great sense of humour. The scenery, tranquility and fresh air is a soothing balm for the soul. Have just rebooked Joubert house in March and I'm taking my parents with as a treat for them.

We spent a relaxing weekend at Coetzer house with friends and their seven month old puppy.

The owner came to see us shortly after we arrived to check everything was in order, which is in line with the friendly and prompt responses received when booking.

The house itself is perfect for families, as there is a room upstairs for kids, which is a hide-away for them to enjoy. The deck/entertainment area looks out onto the farm and river area below and is the perfect spot to relax with a good book or to braai with friends.

If you have a dog, do yourself (and them) a favour and take them along. This place is every dog's dream- from running around exploring safely, to swimming in the river. Our friends'dog was absolutely exhausted by the end of the weekend from all the fun he had had.

My husband caught quite a few bass and so had a successful and enjoyable time fishing. It is quite rare to find somewhere that caters for both the wife and fisherman!

The house can be a bit noisy at night, as the kitchen taps drip and some of the doors rattle, but this is minor is comparison to the advantages of the property. It is fully kitted out with everything you could need, so don't worry about packing anything more than some condiments. Coffee, tea, sugar and milk are provided. There is even a dishwasher, just be careful to put the outpipe out the window. The jacuzzi was clean and pipping hot, ready for when we arrived. It is a great addition to the overall entertainment area.

We had an issue with some farm children playing in the river, but the owner has contacted me and assured me that this will be addressed.

We will definitely be back, as Lategan farm is good value for money!

What a place! Everyone should experience a break away place like this as often as they can!!! Now my only problem is that I have to find a place that compares to River Edge and that is close enough for us to go to regularly. We spent a blissful 2 days (its not enough!) either floating on the river, sitting in the jacuzzi watching the clouds or lying on the bed gazing up at the mountain. The cottage (Benjamin) is extremely well appointed with everything you need. The location is very private - clothing can be optional except when you actually go onto the river and might see people from the next door cottage there too.
I have recommended River Edge to everyone that I met on the rest of our holiday in the Cape and I am only sorry that I live so far away.

We spent our honeymoon at Coetzer House on the Lategan farm and it was just perfect! Home away from home! Everything you need is here! Very private and no neighbours for km's which is great if you are looking for a peaceful holiday! The house is totally kitted out with everything and has very comfortable bedrooms. Even though it poured with rain and stormed over our honeymoon the holiday was still perfect! We even rowed up the river in the wind and caught some fish which was great! We will definitely be back and I can highly recommend this accommodation to everyone! just beautiful! Charlie and Taryn, Cape Town

Room Tip: Coetzer house was immaculate and perfect!

We spent 3 blissful days over New Years at River Edge in the Coetzer House. It was great and perfect for a big family or 2 families travelling together. The house is spacious and airy and offers 2 double rooms downstairs with a cosy loft room upstairs for the kids with 4 single beds. It's like a hide-away for them offering a tree-house-type experience with the spiral stairs leading up to the loft. Very cool!

The house offers various living spaces where you can relax and "veg". The outside deck and braai area with Jacuzzi is very spacious with a large lawn/grass area in front of the house where the kids can play or suntan. You are right on the edge of the river. The weather was amazing and we spent the whole time wallowing in the river. Bliss for city-slicker kids!! There is a river boat as well as a canoe for your use.

The house offers everything you need from a dishwasher, to a gas stove, microwave, kettle etc it's great! As far as the views are concerned, I have uploaded some pics!

Thanks for the review....really appreciate it!! So glad you had a relaxing 3 days on the farm and that you could share special moments with your kids and friends. The Coetzer house is ideal for a large family or 2 smaller families sharing. The huge covered deck is great for all weather conditions. Hope to see you on the farm again soon!

The setting at River Edge is perfect- the views from the cottage are breathtaking; the pace of life slows down here allowing tranquillity and calm to seep into your soul. We enjoyed 3 nights here- it was a birthday break and much needed getaway from a very rushed and busy life. Our cat and African Grey parrot joined us- the African Gray loved sitting on the porch watching the river and birds. Our cat bravely wondered down to the river bank and enjoyed the luscious grass. We braaied every night and our days were filled with peaceful tranquillity- little cellphone reception meant disruptions from the city were minimised. Soaking in the Jacuzzi on the deck was a highlight and perfected the whole experience. Accommodation facilities are perfect and clean- I would only recommend better quality dishwashing liquid (or take your own). The privacy afforded us was unmatched and appreciated. From making the enquiry via the web all the way through to our check-in, the communications were always friendly and efficient. It was just the break we needed. We will definitely be back and look forward to inviting friends to join us next time.
