STUNNING visit to Farm 215, everything was perfect! From the bird song in the morning, the buck we saw on our walk, the incredible abundance of the fynbos, the views and sunsets - there is so much to soak up - it really is an unforgettable experience! And that is without mentioning the thoughtful detail that makes the rooms so comfortable. Our time there wasn't long enough - we'll be back!! Thank you Team 215 <3

Cottage was very well appointed with all the necessary facilities and well equipped. The only negative would be the "hot tub" - can't really call it as such as it never could hot, even after 3 bags of firewood (albeit very wet firewood) We would recommend you insulate the tub better as the corrugated iron is more of a heat detractor than insulator!

We enjoyed a great month on a wilderness retreat in the fynbos - a wonderful view, expansive, mountains and sea, and birdlife and tortoises and lizards regular visitors. Some fine walking on the land, and we enjoyed excusrions in the surrounds as well. The hosts were very attentive, all needs met as soon as they were expressed. Others obviously came and went from the neighbouring properties but we always felt private. You can look back at the place from a nieghbouring winery and visit Africa's southernmost rainforest nearby. A very bumpy road to get in, so we were glad of having high clearance in our car. A great stay.

We had a amazing time at the mountain suite, having stayed at the fynbos units before this unit in comparison offers more space but with a more rustic farmhouse interior set in a modernist structure on the hill. We hardly saw anybody except on the occasional walk some of the other guest. Its a very peaceful place with a lot of beautiful fynbos. We where lucky enough to spot some antelope and birdlife is in abundance. The space has a great private outdoor area and a wood fired hot tub that looks over the kloof, the natural pool that is fed by mountain water is a must try, you skin feels amazing afterwards!

The mountain suite on the property of Farm 215 was one of the older accommodations on the property. A secluded farmhouse on the mountain with nice views and quite some space. The interior was a bit out dated and stains on chairs and here and there the paint on walls and floors was damaged. Furniture was also a bit outdated and the cottage could use an upgrade in paint and furniture. A mouse ran through the bedroom a few times. The swimming pool outside looked nice but there was no working pump, during our stay we saw nobody on the premises….

Response from , General Manager at Farm 215
Responded 25 Mar 2023
No, the pool does not have a pump. It does not need a pump. It is a natural pool. Clean and fresh mountain water runs into the pool via gravity and runs out at the bottom of the pool to the dam below the accommodation, also via gravity. This is a private nature reserve. If you leave the door open, wildlife might come in and will linger till you open a door again so that it can go out again. It was probably a striped mouse, a pretty little animal. Luckily it was not a baboon. The reserve is 800 hectares, it that is what you mean with "premises" . The accommodation is spaced far apart and the closest place where staff lives is 500 meters away from your unit. "Not seeing anyone" comes with the Sense of Space, which is one of the main reasons people stay at Farm 215, but we do realise that that is not to everybody's liking. Every guest has a dedicated telephone number where we can be reached day and night. Sorry this was not the place for you.

The unit was well equipped and tranquil. However, in the height of summer, there is no where to sit and laze outside as the afternoon sun shines 100% on the patio. The unit inside gets unbearably hot from around 2pm, making it difficult to wait for the sun to set and enjoy the patio. I am sure in cooler weather this would not be a problem.

What a delightful stay in one of the Fynbos Villas in Farm 215. We had panoramic views from every part of the villa with large sliding doors opening up to nature. It was peaceful and quiet and we some horses come visit one early morning. What a delight seeing them standing in the fynbos in the mist. We did not use the hot tub as it was a busy weekend with family and friends. If I can point out two things for future guests. Remember to bring your own hairdryer. The owner was most accommodating and did find one for me to use, which was most appreciated. And if you don't like drinking water that are slightly discoloured from tannin, I would suggest you bring some bottles water as it is not provided the villas. All in all we had a lovely stay and will definitely return again.

Our stay at Farm215 was absolutely perfect. Everything was actually even nicer than the photos on the website. The view is just amazing! The kitchen has everything you need. The bed is huge and super comfortable. You don’t have to leave the property for amazing hikes through the nature reserve. The supermarket and fishstore in Gansbaai is a beautiful 25 minute drive. From the balcony you have a panoramic view of fynbos, winefields, mountains and the ocean. The neighbours (8 minute drive) are actually a great wine domaine (Lomond wine estate) with an excellent selection of wines. Every evening we enjoyed a glass sitting on the huge balcony and watching the sunsets. Oh, and the host, a dutch guy called Martin, (who is assisted by a wonderful team including the lovely Naomi and Jacob,) is a very cool dude that makes sure that your stay is perfect. He actually made sure our rentalcar started after we had forgotten to turn the lights off the day before. We will definitely return.

We stayed at FARM215 in November and loved every second of our experience. Our Suite was spacious, very well appointed, and with everything that we possibly needed. The location is amazing, the views - wow! Waking up to the sound of nature and going to bed with the most beautiful sunsets was the highlight. Many beautiful activities on the farm including hikes. Highly recommended. We will be back!

We had the best weekend getaway at Farm 215. Beautifully appointed private cottage with all the comforts one could ask for. I was devastated to leave and would happily return any time. Thank you Farm 215!
