  • "Die stilte. Net moeder natuur geluide..."

    05 August 2018

    "Die stilte. Die natuur geluide. Geen stads geraas ens nie. Lieflike berg uitsig . Plek was netjies en skoon. Net lekker koud gewees. 'n Kaggel sou lekker gewees het en die voordeur kan dalk skuif tot voor die badkamer. Moeilik om in die winter oggend by die voordeur uit te stap as die nood roep. Sal weer van die plek gebruik maak vir 'n wegbreek naweek. Sal die plek definitief voorstel vir natuur liefhebbers."

  • "Awesome location, back to nature"

    23 October 2017

    "The accommodation is very basic (we stayed in the white cottages). The location is awesome - right on the Greyton to MacGregor hiking trail with incredible views down the valley. Pool was cool as was the bed on the stoep and the wind-sheltered braai area. Clean & tidy, though a little cramped and we did have some problems with water."

  • "Die natuurskoon en rustigheid."

    02 May 2017

    "Ons het in huisies 1 en 2 gebly. Geriewe nie 5 ster, maar baie gerieflik met alles wat nodig is. Goot verskeidenheid proteas wat al blom is pragtig, sal dit graag wil sien wanneer in volle blom. Hier is selfs die vols ook rustig, want mens hoor net af en toe een, terwyl die paddas en krieke blykbaar in die nag slaap, want 11 uur in die aand is dit doodstil. Te veel wandelpaadjies wat te min is vir `n naweek."

    05 January 2013

    "We stayed in a lovely thatch cottage. The cottage was tastefully decorated, with a warm and caring touch. The surrounding mountains were breathtaking, and the peace and beauty of the nature was simply magical! The braai area was the coziest we have ever experienced. We left the place completely rested and totally at peace with ourselves. We did not want to leave!"
