This was one of the best stop over's we have had. Lynette the hostess was warm and welcoming, she went out of her way to make us feel at home. The accommodation itself was beautiful and the food was superb.

Lovely accommodation, friendly and hospitable. Well worth a stop on your trip north or south. We requested dinner for the evening, the quantity and quality was every cent worth. Thank you Lynette and the Van Der Walts

Lynette is a warm hostess with a wealth of info about the area. The catered meals were well crafted and presented. The rooms were spacious and well-equipped. The setting among large trees is well established and attractive. The communal braai area may not be to everyone's taste but we made some new friends there while having a meal. Close enough (10km) to a town for emergency supplies, but remote enough to totally unwind. Ideal for a breakaway long weekend as well as for a halfway stop to the East Cape coast.

Clean, comfortable and peaceful Karoo farm hospitality ❤️ Our grand kids loved the farm animals and the cats, they were just disappointed that they could not swim because if the dreaded covid regulations, but we only slept over on our way to the Overberg. We will definitely will visit again, hopefully not just for a night next time
