We were very kind received. In the spacious Room of the gardenhouse we wants for nothing, we found more than we need. We found an ambience of privateness. The excellent breakfast completed this wunderfull accomodation

In March 2010 I stayed at Airlies with Tielman and Corrie and had a wonderful time. I said at the time that old cliche' "I will stay here again". My review for that visit is on the SafariNow website. Well I have just spent 10 days on a return visit to Airlies in March 2011 and... I can only describe my stay as "Perfection Repeated". Tielman & Corrie thank you for yet another wonderful time at your beautiful home and, I am sure you will believe me when I say 'I WILL' return yet again. Your attention to detail is without doubt the best I have ever seen and, the breakfast is fantastic.
Thank you for a wonderful stay.

P.S.
I am also happy to note that an earlier concern by another visitor about mosquitoes HAS BEEN COMPLETELY SOLVED. There was not the slightest evidence of even a single mosquito during the ten days I stayed in your garden rooms.

Room Tip: Every room is special at Airlies

We had a lovely, spacious garden room and the guest house is in easy walking distance of shops and restaurants. The friendly owners made us very welcome and cooked delicious breakfasts. We were able to relax and unwind around the pool and in the gardens.

We stayed in one of the garden rooms for 1 night. Very quiet, well appointed room with large shower and nestled into pathways and flowers. Hosts very pleasant, breakfast good. Perfect for an overnight stay on the mountain route. Recommend a trip to the hot springs resort but dont expect to find lots of nightlife here - place is deserted after 8pm! Pack the mosquito repellent too - we got bitten for the first (and only) time on our entire trip when staying here...

This is a lovely, friendly place to stay. We did not have a booking but luckily a "garden room" was available. The room was a recent addition to the main house. It is very spacious and the ensuite bathroom is huge. The Garden in which the room is situated is full of fabulous plants and flowers. The guest house is within safe walking distance of several restaurants. Breakfast was served in the traditional style dining room and was very good. The hospitality we received was very warm. I would recommend Airlies to anyone driving through Montague and needs a place to stay.

The place and the owners were everything we expected from previous positive reviews.
The dissapointment came by being bitten to distraction by mosquitos all night!
We stayed in one of the (charming) garden rooms,and there were no mosquito nets or repellants and the windows had been left open. We were given no prior warning advice from the proprietors.
When asked at breakfast if we'd had a comfortable night, I mentioned the problem and surprisingly received no apology, just the comment that it was 'that time of the year'!
I would suggest they address this problem to avoid further discomfort to future guests

Dear Norman and Linda,
Thank you for your honest review.
We are sorry to hear about the mosquito problem. At the time, we did not realise that it was such a problem, as we have had very few mosquitos this summer. We have subsequently taken precautions by switching on the mosquito repellents every night.
(fortunately the mosquitos in this part of South Africa are harmless, except for being a nuisance)
Thank you also for you kind words "Lovely time. Thanks." in our guest book.
We do hope to see you again some day.
Regards.
Tielman
