Fantastic! What a way to start the week!
- Andre Isherwood

A wonderful home away from home, with everything you need. The children and lab puppy had great fun in the large well fenced garden. Close to loads of attractions and places of interest, so an ideal spot for tourists and locals alike.

Lovely house with lots of space inside. Kitchen well supplied, comfortable beds, clean bathrooms. The kids loved playing outside on the well kept lawn, and walking down to the small dam on the property to fish. The owners were helpful and friendly. We had a wonderful stay, and will be back again soon.

Feels like home. Friendly people.

Great accommodation! Will be returning very soon and hopefully this will become a regular venue for us for our Sterkfontein trips in summer.
