Dawid was a kind & accommodating host who took my reservation at the last minute which was really appreciated. The cottage is located opposte a park in a quiet part of the town; it felt very tranquil.
The unit is really lovely & practical with it's "long" lay-out. It was well equipped with everything one could need. Only reason for giving it a 4 & not a 5 is that the cottage could have used some airing out prior to my arrival. There were a few cobwebs in cupboards & such; but nothing frighening or outrageous. Just noticeable. Otherwise, it's a wonderful & well furnished unit. I highly recommend it & hope to return.

Where do I start?
- The fact that there was no running water at the property
- The owner's reluctance to pay a refund for services NOT rendered
- Owner's choice to fabricate false claims of misconduct in order to avoid paying a refund
- The owner's overall attitude to paying customers
In more detail: We arrived at “Toerboer” at approximately 17:00 on the 19th of December 2022. About 30 minutes later, we realised that there wasn't any running water. We were not able to flush the toilet, shower or even wash our hands. This was very disappointing, to say the least. We were never warned about this, prior to our arrival. We then phoned the lady at the their office. She explained that the whole town was without water and that she did not know when the water would be back. I phoned around and booked alternative lodging, in the same town, with running water. Running water was a non-negotiable necessity for us. We also tried to contact the owners, on several occasions, in order to resolve this matter. They did not want to answer their phones as they were apparently also on holiday. Instead, they chose to send us whatsapp messages, dismissing our explanations and only reiterating their false claims. This ordeal came as a complete shock to us, as we have used booking.com on many occasions, both locally and overseas, with no bad experiences. More troubling, is that someone in the tourism industry would fabricate stories and falsely accuse their customer of swearing and misconduct. This all in an attempt to save a measly ZAR 1262.00. Maybe they are desperate for money…? Clearly these people do not belong in the tourism industry and, as a result, they would probably not last very long. What comes around, goes around.... I take exception to their false accusations, I am disgusted with the way that they handle issues in their at their establishment and, as a result, I would definitely discourage anyone to make use of "Toerboer"
