Benn and his dogs give you a warm welcome and show you around this unique space. As a couple it gave us welcome solitude, a great night's sleep, and stunning views making a very romantic stay. I would say to get the best out of this venue go prepared. A barbecue would be a good idea. Other cooking resources are limited, and you'd have to time your visit right if you wanted to go back out on the track to get find a local restaurant.

My family and I had a wonderful time in the Modern Cottage. The venue is very peaceful and has wonderful views. We enjoyed watching the sun rise and listening to the birds. Benn provided helpful information such as where to have breakfast or about the roads. Minor issue - the kitchen and bathroom were a little low on some basic supplies like a dish cloth or coffee.

Great spot with great views. We appreciate what Ben is trying to create and we love the eccentric and eclectic space. His focus is definitely on ECO (repurpose, re-use, etc) which is commendable, so its quite basic, but we had excellent sleep quality and lacked for nothing. However - and not his fault - we paid for 2 nights but stayed for 1 as some unusually freezing weather moved in over the weekend and the combination of no generator during load-shedding meant no warmth, light or facilities in the evening. It felt a bit like glamping which wasn't our plan for the weekend

Beautiful area. Rustic farm experience. Excellent value for your buck. Would stay again there in the future. Very friendly owner and dogs. Would have loved to do the trail unfortunately weather was not great. Made use of one of the multiple fireplaces inside and outside the various places to stay.

Dankjewel Ben voor een geweldig verblijf. Fantastische plek met fenomenale uitzichten. Fijn huis met vooral een geweldige douche. Honderdduizend bonuspunten voor het halen van een koffie en een ontbijtje in de ochtend (omdat we die vergeten waren). We komen zeker weten weer!

Magical place. Epic views of the mountains, 'fynbos', and lower rainforest from cabin balcony and communal entertaining area. We also did an amazing short hike to the private stream/swimming hole, a must do if you visit. Fantastic host Benn who knows everyone and everything in the area and beyond. Thank you for the stay, hope to be back soon. (Also make sure you give the Bloukans Bungee a go, only 15mins away)

It is an amazing place, surrounded by nature and beautiful lodge that is well equipped. Perfect to rest and enjoy the nature. The beach at nature's valley is beautiful. The owner (and his dogs) is very friendly and helpfull. We hope to go back one day.
