The facility is well maintained. We received a warm welcome. My 3 favourite girls will miss their stay there, they always talking about the place. Keep up the good well Step Aside management
- Ephraim Nambane

Step Aside was such an awesome experience. A beautiful place situated in tranquillity. We enjoyed ourselves and did not enquire any problems. I would definitely do it again!

- Siwe Matshisi

The girls were so pleased. They absolutely love it. What a lovely person. He made me and my team feel at home even made us a fire to warm us during our team talk. We do appreciate all his kindness and hospitality. Will recommend Step Aside to our friends

We overnighted at Step-Aside on 19th February. Having arrived extremely late - past midnight - we woke Martin and even though his day starts at 5.30am he welcomed us to open up with a big smile on his face! The chalet that we stayed in was so neat and pretty, and the beds were very inviting and comfortable. We arrived in the dark, not knowing what the surroundings looked like, and when we woke in the morning for breakfast, we woke up to Eden on our doorstep! We were surrounded by the most beautiful mountains and forests. The gardens were so well tended and pretty - we wanted to take them home with us. Breakfast was served punctually and was very tasty - Martin and his team had thought of everything, even little yoghurts and juice for the little ones. I cannot thank Martin enough for all he did for us. We had car trouble when arriving and he organised the local mechanic in town - drove us there so that we didn't get lost - took us into town so that we could while away a few hours while waiting for the vehicle to get fixed - collected us again and took us to collect our vehicle....he basically went out of his way to assist us as much as he could. The pricing of the chalets was the best in the area - and the service was worth sooooo much more! Thank you Martin and your team for a truly memorable stay - we will definitely be back - this time with a more roadworthy vehicle!!! Thank you also to Coenie & Heino who took the time out to fix our vehicle for us - at no cost!!! I don't think Martin and his team could improve on their service...they just need more chalets to accommodate more visitors...
