Our three day get away leaving behind the hustle and bustle of the city suburban life made our stay at this awesome, peaceful, scenic piece of paradise just an absolute blast!!

Loved all of the scenic beauty, enjoyed the serenity & wonder while being pushed by my hubby sitting in a swing overlooking the meandering Breede River, enjoying a chess game on the open well kept rolling lawns of this well kept holiday accommodation, our family walk along the paths which overlooked the awesome majestic Langeberg mountain range and the list goes on.

Our well furnished, state of the art equipped chalet with a personal Jacuzzi on the patio being enjoyed while the hubby prepared a potjie in the fireplace on our veranda which has the most beautiful view of the rising sun coming from behind the mountains.What more is there to say but just praise and thanks to the wonderful management & staff who were always at hand when need be.

A hi 5 to this place hidden in surroundings that spells "PEACE".with an ambiance that make you want to go back once again.

I will recommend this lodge to anyone who is on holiday in the Western Cape or travelling along the garden route on a holiday itinerary or a family peaceful get away.

Room Tip: Beautiful views from the chalets higher up we stayed in No 9 and it is near to the pool

This is one of those places that makes you feel special from the moment you arrive. They are right next to the Breederiver and the grouds are beautifully kept. The units are lovely and is set either close to the river or on the hill overlooking the river. We went on a river rafting trip and was looked after very well. It was a very enjoyable family outing. A place that you can visit time and again.

This is definitely a peaceful getaway with a jacuzzi to relax in and enjoy the view. We would recommend this place to anyone who wants to get away from the crowds and enjoy nature at it's best. This is one of the places we will visit again.
