    "How wonderful it was to arrive at Klein Karoo Valley Guest Farm and be welcomed by Jacky. We were burnt out and needing to unwind before travelling to Port Elizabeth. The cottage is so comfy - especially the kingsize bed! Lovely to sit on the bench by the dam and enjoy our glass of wine looking at the mountains. This is our second visit and we are sure to be back again! Thank you Jacky..."

    "<div style="text-align: justify;">We as a couple spent a two night weekend at Klein Karoo Valley Guest Farm and were delighted to find this true "Oasis in the desert!" Clean, comfortable and affordable accommodation in the Little Karoo! The Jacuzzi bath was a real treat and the aircon in the bedroom helped to keep the heat at bay. The cottage is well equipped and helped to make our stay pleasant and enjoyable, despite the overwhelmingly hot days. The cherry on top for us was the fact that our two elderly Golden Retrievers were welcomed with open arms!</div><div style="text-align: justify;"></div><div style="text-align: justify;"></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Les &amp; Jacky were the ideal hosts and deserve to be inundated with bookings from far and wide! If you happen to be looking for accommodation in the Ladismith/Calitzdorp area look no further than Klein Karoo Valley Guest Farm, a gem in the country!</div><div style="text-align: justify;"></div><div style="text-align: justify;"></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Dudley &amp; Shirley, Titus &amp; Tamora, Pearly Beach, Western Cape</div>"

    05 September 2015

    "The new host, Les, was very friendly and helpful and we found the cottage very comfortable, very clean and loved having the electric blanket for the cold Karoo nights. The view is stunning across the dam at sun up and sun set. The bench overlooking the dam is a great place for sun downers, The walk through the veld was fascinatingwith many different varieties of spring flowers. We'll be back to enjoy the peace and quiet of the Karoo."

    "Huis het my baie gemaklik laat voel, lekker rustigearea. My kinders het hul gate geniet behalwe dat ons , ons visstokke by huis vergeet het. Maar oordie algemeen sal jy nie beter as dit in daardie geweste kry nie. Baie dankie Pam vir jou gasvryheid.<i>The house made me feel very comfortable, a nice quiet area. My children enjoy the dam except that we left our fishing rods at home. But overall you wont find a better place in the area. Thank you Pam for your hospitality. </i>"

  • "Klein Karoo Valley bliss"

    07 September 2014

    "What a wonderful 2-night stopover at the quaintest guest farm cottage on the R62. Pam and Rudi are great hosts and the cottage offers everything needed for a peaceful break from city life. Well situated between Calitzdorp and Ladismith and near Seweweeks Poort (well worth the drive). It has all the amenities (plus a Jacuzzi!) that one needs, lovely sunsets and a great bush walking trail. Well done."

  • "Again and again"

    02 April 2013

  • "Beautiful place"

    28 December 2012

    "Beautiful setting. Very peaceful at night but a little traffic noise during the day depending on wind direction and strength. Not a lot to do locally but great just to chill. Swimming not really on in the dam as no real place to enter and exit water without disturbing mother nature. For self catering types like us we need more dish towels and swabs and some zim pads for braai utensils. More variety of wine and other glasses. Please some two ply toilet paper! Cottage could be cleaner with more guidance and supervision. Small things like dusting more carefully and surfaces being scrubbed cleaner than we found. We are fussy but hope this crticism is taken as constructive as small touches make a huge difference. Otherwise a very relaxing and enjoyable stay."

  • "Opsoek Guest Farm"

    18 December 2012

    "We use to live there on the farm where the Guest house is. The farm belonged to Mrs Kit Rooiblom. The old Pepper tree behind the house and the dam is still there. Thank you for creating an Oasis. A lot of effort was put in creating this resort. The 20thCentury have not reach the farm yet. Please keep it like this. Many good thanks to Trevor."
