Guest Comments

A lovely B&B - a historical house full of beautiful antiques and modern amenities, clearly kept with great love and dedication by Sandra and Henie. They are so knowledgeable about local history and places to visit. A pleasure! And it's just half way between Joburg and Durban!

We found Hennie and Sandra very welcoming and informative , not only about their house's history but also Harrismith. Our stay was extremely pleasant and I have (proudly) already recommended it to friends and family. Thank you.

Very friendly and made us feel welcome.
- Godfrey Harris

We were so well received by friendly and helpful hosts and the fire was burning warm and bright in the wood stove! Die Oude Huize Yard gave us the feeling of being in a beloved family home - antiques, old photos and books; creative use of so many odds and ends (keys sewn onto pillows, decorative sculptures in the garden, etc.), a big old bath tub in addition to the modern shower and a lovely old brass bed - with a new and comfortable mattress! Lovely!

Sandra and Hennie thought of every possible detail you can imagine. It was an awesome experience.
