  • "A real gem!"

    22 June 2014

    "Ideally located at the end of town one gets the feeling of being in the country but at the same time one is only 500m from the main road and all that Prince Albert village has to offer. The cottage is secluded with access to the main garden. It is very well appointed, all comforts are taken care of, and the table under the tree with a view of the dam is an added bonus. Andre and Linda are genial hosts and nothing is too much trouble. Highly recommended."

  • "Enjoyed"

    09 February 2012

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cottage. It was clean, well equipped and tastefully furnished. Breakfast could have been a little more than a jar of sweet muesli, I'm a diabetic so it wasn't good. Fruit? The village was a delight with good food and friendly people. The biggest drawback was the lack of access to the Internet. We were advised to use an Internet cafe in the village, not convenient and not open at night."

    Karen Caldwell, South Africa
  • "Lovely"

    07 December 2011

    "'n Lieflike plaas met olyfboorde en 'n fantastiese gasheer en gasvrou. Die heerlikste tuisgemaakte muesli en beskuit in die kombuis. Wonderlike atmosfeer! Sal weer gaan maar vir 'n week daar gaan bly. A lovely farm with olive groves and fantistic hosts. The best homemade muesli and rusks in the kitchen. Wonderful atmosphere! Will go again but stay for a week."
