I will definitely book at Rockys Drift again. Enjoyed my rest in a beautiful setting.

Just would like to thank you for the lovely time we had at Rocky drift.The scenery and the accommodation was out of this world. We really had a good rest and Judas and Lina were always around to assist. The weekend was like our own home - comfortable and our every need was seen to. We plan on coming back again with our family as we really had a beautiful relaxing time....
God bless.


No electricity for the duration of the weekend
We asked for candles, no provision were made for the lack of electricity.
The servant's kids are all over the place, not very private.
The back yard is untidy - full of rubbish.
The dog is very cute, but I don't know if he is looked after.
The place has lots of potential, but it is not well managed.
We didn't expect luxury for this price, but we expected a bit more.


Wow ! From the very friendly staff to the beautiful accommodation everything was perfect. Everything was clean and all needed was there, it felt like we were at our own home... We enjoyed our stay.

Very nice and quiet, good for unwinding.

Peace and quiet!

Spent just one night at Rockydrift, should have booked at least 3! The staff was outstanding and the cottages are 5 star throughout. I am definitely coming back with the whole family.
