We stayed at Paddabult for 2 nights and it was just what we needed. The house size is adequate, with modern bathroom and kitchen with all you need. The space around each unit is great for the kids who played for hours on the green grass outside. We also had a picnic in the shade under a beautiful tree. The location is great, quite central to visit wine farms in any direction and easy to get to the main highway nearby.

What an absolutely gorgeous place.
Unit is very spacious, Beds are comfortable and the view over the tree plantation (what i think was lemon trees) beautiful. We could not stay long enough to enjoy the braai but sitting on the patio having a glass of wine was perfect.
We were welcomed via Whatsapp with the relevant instructions for checking in. We received clean towels the next day. There is enough crockery to cover 2 meals (always a plus if you dont have to do the dishes before the next meal)

The cottage was very comfortable, everything was what we expected, we had a wonderful stay at Paddabult. The area is very peaceful, and the front lawns were ideal for the children.
Thank you Janene for looking after us during our stay, we will most definitely return someday.

We loved our stay at Paddabult. For a self catering unit, we had everything we needed for a comfortable and pleasurable stay. Janene was always available, provided necessary information prior to check-in and any requests we had was dealt with swiftly and friendly. Will definitely recommend and stay there again

We attended a wedding close by so it was a great place to stay.
Also host was very helpful and answered all our queries promptly esp as there was a power failure.
Given that it was the hottest weekend of the year - we really needed the air conditioner!!

Dear Janene,
Thank you for your excellent service during our weekend stay at Paddabult. The surrounds are breathtakingly beautiful and we particularly enjoyed watching the stars at night on the lush lawn. The accommodation is exceptionally neat, tidy and comfortable. I will definitely recommend Paddabult to my friends and family.

The cottages were great, clean and totally worth the value.
However, we had cottage number six. That was close to the street.
Sitting on the porch you could hear the rather loud street very well.
At night, and in the morning when traffic pics up, it got very loud and you could hearing in the bedrooms.
Go for cottages farther back. Number 1 or so.

Paddabult was one of the best stays we had. It is spacious, clean and the most friendly staff. We travelled with a special needs adult and Janene went out of her way to assist. We will definitely stay here again. Thank you Janene for your friendly and fast responses.

It was an amazing experience. The stay was wonderful and we had a relaxing time and felt as if we were living on a farm in real life. We felt safe and everything worked seamlessly from the admin to the effective communication from Janene to the check in and when we had to lock up and depart again. We are saving to visit Paddabult again in the future.

Great stay. We arrived late and the security guard was expecting us and our cottage was all ready with lights on. It was very comfortable and had everything we needed. The setting was wonderful; we could smell the orange blossoms every time we opened our door and had a beautiful view of the vineyards.
