Our three nights went too fast. Never have we experienced such tranquility and peacefulness. Yet with the comfort of knowing our hostess, a couple of kilometres away, will be in touch every day to see if all is fine. Many thanks for maintaining this beautiful building to allow people, looking to escape from the city, a place where they can rest.
Sneeuberg Nature Reserve is THE one place where you can just unwind, relax and forget about the the daily rat race! We stayed in the Gordonville Cottage and everything you need to recharge and refresh is there. Daron and her team went out of their way to make us feel welcome and care for and Daron's gentle way of enquiring and making sure that we find our way towards our destination, was especially appreciated as we were really off the beaten path. Nature is beautiful, the stars at night something to behold and little things like the complimentary picnic basket was a bonus - not to forget the undercover swimming pool and games room! Just make a plan, let it happen and get to Sneeuberg Nature Reserve - you won't regret it!
Karoo Cottage is a rustic homestead in Sneeuberg Nature Reserve. The cottage is well equipped, comfortable and an excellent location. If you want peace and quite and stay in luxury, this is the place to go to.
To start we will definitely be back! This was a WOW experience! Karoo at its best (even with lack of rain) Richard and Daron congratulations on doing an outstanding job in this beautiful,remote location. Wonderful accommodation and the vista’s superb! The food meal Daron supplied was simply excellent!
Despite the rural location in the Sneeuberg range, the booking, planning and coordination was seamless and we felt warmly welcome, even before our arrival. Kliphuis is a 'stunner' and the 4 couples in our family group were comfortable, with the equipment adequate for our planned family feast. All our requests were meat to our satisfaction. Our night photography of the milky way over the Karoo landscape a winner!
We had a wonderful 5 night get away at the Gordonville Cottage. Just what we needed after months of lockdown. Accommodation was very good. Best prepared picnic basket ever. Staff very helpful. Did some walks on the reserve and spotted some game and birds.
We had a splendid time at Sneeuberg Reserve. On our arrival, we were spoiled with a delicious platter, freshly baked bread, and wine. We enjoyed it on the stoep while looking at the amazing view. Everything we needed was available in the house like firewood, matches, etc. The rooms were cozy with warm linen and electric blankets. We have done some star gazing at night. We enjoyed every moment of our stay and will recommend a visit to the Sneeuberg Reserve.
Visitted Kliphuis with colleagues. We enjoyed the wide open expanses of veld all around of us - felt one with nature! So, so quiet - once cannot help but relax! Visitted in August - hence the fires in the house kept us cosy and warm. The kitchen is well stocked and we were able to cook up a storm. The decor of the house lends itself perfectly to the "architecture" and surrounds - we felt warm and coccooned. Bathrooms were a little cold, but understandable given the look of the house (great for summer). Only recommendation would be to give visitors a little more information (before visitting Kliphuis) as to the condition of roads to the reserve. We came in from the Nieu Bethesda side and the signage was very limitted - had to stop at a few settlements to ask for directions. Would have been easier had we know distance from gates, etc. The road from Middelburg is much better and I would recommend it instead.…
We had the most lovely 2 nights staying in the Karoo Cottage. It was clean, and beautiful and lovely. We really enjoyed the HUGE indoor fireplace in the kitchen and spent hours playing cards in front of the fire, when we weren't out wandering on the farm.
We had such a fantastic peaceful holiday here, the welcome was warm and the cottage was immaculately neat, a welcome fruit bowl and loads of firewood for the icy weather, but we never felt cold! we will be back , the reserve and the cottage are just heavenly
