What a beautiful and unforgettable experience. David and Lidia are such wonderful hosts, they make you part of their family the minute you confirm your booking. The food is amazing, you're actually overfed, this home is not for picky non-eaters 😄. The Oryx Suite we slept in was very clean and neat, spacious, has such beautiful views, yet very private. They turned our wedding anniversary into a memorable experience. We'll definitely go back someday. Whoever books, pray for good weather to experience the sunset drive, amazing!!! The house is still cozy and warm enough though in case of chilly weather. Thank you David and Lidia.

What a gem we found in The Misverstrand Boutique Farm Lodge! My wife and I spent a weekend there and it was an absolute delight.

The property itself is tranquillity personified. The peaceful farm surroundings offered us a serene retreat away from our everyday life. Walking around, taking in the stunning views and breathing in the fresh air was therapeutic.

The lodge was impressive. Every detail was thoughtfully considered, a perfect blend of rustic charm and modern comforts. It was evident that great care was taken to ensure guests have an outstanding and cosy stay.

Dining at the lodge was an extraordinary experience. The food was beyond amazing - each dish was an explosion of flavors and textures. The use of fresh, local produce and the expert skill behind each preparation added an extra layer of indulgence to our stay.

The company was the proverbial cherry on top. The friendly and helpful staff made our experience even more enjoyable. They were dedicated to making our stay as comfortable as possible, and they certainly succeeded. Interacting with them, as well as the other guests, was a pleasure.

In summary, if you're seeking a place to unwind, experience gourmet food, and enjoy warm hospitality, The Misverstrand Boutique Farm Lodge should be on top of your list. We couldn't recommend it highly enough. It is a visit we will remember and cherish, and one we hope to repeat in the future.

First of all a very special thank you to David and Lidia. My husband and myself, two daughters with their husband's and our son spent an entire weekend at Misverstand. What an experience. Together with David and Lidia we had the lodge to ourselves. We were treated like royalty. The service, food, cleanliness of our rooms, tranquility and just the entire experience at Misverstand was a weekend for the books, will most definitely make Misverstand a must do at least 2 or 3 times a year. David, Lidia, German, Abraham and Axel, once again well done and thank you.
Much Love
Marius , Annette and Family

We were blown away by our stay at Misverstand. David and Lidia were brilliant hosts - thoughtful and kind. Sharing the supper table with them over delicious, top quality 3 course meals was a joy, as were the equally outstanding 3 course breakfasts! Misverstand is simply stunning. The website photos don’t do it justice. It is a luxurious architectural phenomenon in stunning scenic seclusion. We have never been anywhere like it. We loved it.

A unique and exclusive venue to relax in the hands of two hospitality experts, David and Lidia. The architecture is really something to admire with some very unusual design elements. The downstairs area has a fantastic pool table, gas heater and extra large screen for viewing your favourite movies or sport events. This is all located alongside a heated infinity pool with a breathtaking view of the Vredefort Valley that has an extraordinary history. The food was truly out of this world and the Sunset Drive experience was just wow! Highly recommended and we will certainly be returning for another amazing experience. Thank you David and Lidia.

Misverstand Boutique Hotel is really one of those places that exceeds expectations in every way and that is a rare thing! The food was unexpectedly "fine dining" standard and David deserves accolades. The welcome by Lidia and Axel Rose(pet) warms you instantly. The location is so stunning that you wonder why you have never been here before. The tour of the Vredefort Dome by Graeme Addison was really the cherry on the top. GO! It should be a bucket list item!

For a Saffa on a quick (and long overdue) visit home Misverstand is a must. The location is perfect with an amazing view from over the valley and bushveld. The architecture of the house allows it to blend seamlessly into the surrounding while still making a visual impact in its grandeur. The rooms are exquisite, beautifully appointed and with the most comfortable pillows I have ever had the pleasure to sleep on. David and Lidia are outstanding hosts and each meal was a culinary journey. The review would not be complete without a honorary mention of Axl the coolest dog ever. Thank you for the special touches that created a special experience for me, my sisters, and my mother. I will be back on my next visit to South Africa .

I searched for a place with a great ambience, Tranquility and a great serenity.. I took a friend to rest and enjoy her birthday. What we experienced was way above what we expected. It was awesome, words fail me in explaining the kind of experience we had. A retreat, i found myself healing... Surrounded by nature. The personal attention to detail offered by Lidia and Dave is a rare one. One that I will remember forever. You have to experience it yourself...

What a beautiful surprise that the place turned out to be. From location, to the accommodation, surrounds and most of all Lidia and David's exceptional hosting. The food was prepared and served with such grace and was most delicious! It was wonderful to see it being freshly prepared. Really loved the royalty treatment and warmth from our hosts. We enjoyed our walk, sunset tour and the beautful infinity pool. A remarkable place to relax and break away from the stress of the city! Thank you Lidia and David for an unforgettable experience. I recommend it to everyone who is looking for something special and different from the rest.
