Gail and Nic Hanekom are the perfect hosts and they truly live "The Essence of Fynbosvlei" as is beautifully captured in a framed essay in the cottage living room. Moments after we arrived, we felt at home. The cottage and surroundings all scream 'love of nature', 'care for the environment' and 'sharing this beautiful piece of earth entrusted to us, with others'.
My husband absolutely loves sitting by a fire, so the 'terms and conditions' stating "please do not bring any wood" was one of his highlights! As they are clearing aliens on the farm, they have plenty of wood and Daniel was only to willing to bring you as many as you needed.
We had the perfect stay weather-wise as well. One day of rainy weather which was our excuse to light the indoor fireplace, drink red wine and read books. The very next day was the perfect sunny day in which my husband caught a grunter from the jetty early morning, we made brunch on a open fire at the lapa down at the lake, I sunbathed while listening to the chirping of numerous birds and our doggy just couldn't get enough of the huge lawn!
Nic, Gail, thank you for sharing this piece of heaven with us - we will see you again soon!
We had a lovely stay at the Fynbosvlei cottages.
The cottages had some of the most spectacular views we've experienced. It was the perfect place to relax.
Our 2-night stay was just over too quick. Next time we'll surely stay for a little longer.
Fynbosvlei has become our home away from home in the last few years. We have been coming here for our annual summer holiday for a few years. The farm is privately owned by Nic and Gail Hanekom, who very kindly share their piece of paradise with anyone who stays here. They are the most amazing hosts who really go out of their way to make one feel at home.
The Log cabins have everything you need to create a perfect holiday. From the balcony with stunning views, the well-equipped kitchen and the lovely comfy beds.
The best part of the farm is however the private lake access. Despite being there at the busiest time of year, it is never crowded because you have your very own jetty on the lake. You can launch your boat, enjoy water sports, swimming and fishing.
We will certainly be back again and again again!!
