Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

The attentiveness and great experience starts with the interactions during the booking... It continues at the same level. Great place for a stop over to Kruger. Easy to find and good food. Safe parking. Will return

Good morning Gentlemen
Thank you for your lovely review of Boven Villa.
I am very pleased to hear that you had an enjoyable overnight stay. Here's hoping that you managed to see some of the big cats in KNP.
Whenever you are passing through this way be sure to bare Boven Villa in mind.
Best wishes

Excellent lodging with personalized and very friendly service, down to the last detail. The owners really go the extra mile, and the food was also exquisite. Amazing walks in the area, and close driving range to other local attractions, like Kaapschehoop and Dullstroom. Will definitely stay there again!!

Good morning Guys
Wow, thank you very much for writing such a lovely review.
I am so glad that you had a good stay at Boven Villa. It is just a pity that the weather did not play ball. But at least it allowed you to snuggle under the comfy snug duvets.
Hopefully the next time you are in the area you are able to find those wonderful waterfalls.
Kind regards
Sean

What a gem!!!

Home away from home and look forward to visiting again.
If you are looking for a place where you feel totally at home while traveling, do yourself a favour and stop over at Boven Villa and stay a night or two. Sean's hospitality was top notch.

Totally private space, warm and cosy and intimate inside and out!

Sean's breakfast and coffee was great :)

Good afternoon Carmen\
Thank you for taking the time to post a review on your stay at Boven Villa.
It is lovely to hear that the Elephant Room was warm and spacious, that the hospitality was top notch and the breakfast great. Those are the adjectives that we strive for.
It would be perfect to know how we could improve on those to deliver a 5/5 review.
Kind regards
Sean

What a treat to arrive at Boven Villa to Sean's warm hospitality after a day of travelling. Thankfully Sean had asked the day before we departed if we would like to have dinner on arrival (something that we had overlooked in our planning) so were relieved to have a delicious three course meal waiting. Our room and bath were spacious and cosy under the thatch. Boven Villa is a tranquil haven and we look forward to visiting again when we can explore some of the walks in the area.

Room Tip: We enjoyed the privacy & spaciousness of the 'Elephant' room

Magic setting. amazing service and delicious home-cooked meals. Sean is a great host with genuine hospitality. I had the privilege of staying there twice. So, experiencing 2 different rooms. The Lion room, downstairs is obviously the special suite as it has its own spacious en suite bathroom. Upstairs rooms share a communal bathroom with shower. The gardens are beautiful and well-maintained. Lots of TLC! Can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: If you're a coffee snob, like me, bring your own device and coffee.

Good morning Cito
Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to write such lovely words about Boven Villa. We, at Boven Villa, strive to deliver scrummy meals in a homely surrounding when visiting our 'One Horse Town'.
Waterval Boven is tranquil, clean and almost crime-free. There are exciting projects lined up for the re-development of this gorgeous town and hopefully one day it will be returned to it's former glory.
Remember to keep on rocking and once again thanks for the kind words.
Sean
