A delicious wholesome farm breakfast is served, and for dinner, nearby Franschhoek buzzes with bistros and restaurants.

As a family we booked 1 night at Klein Waterval for Christmas Eve. Well we should have booked 3. It was too beautiful. The hospitality was wonderful, scenery spectacular and the accommodation was just fabulous. Gorgeous swimming pool with an honesty bar which we wished we had had more time to enjoy. The breakfast was fresh, nothing spared and delicious. Thank you for our lovely stay.

Property's Favourite Review
My husband and I visited in March for a special location. From start to finish, our stay was just wonderful. We were met on arrival by the lovely host, Ezna. She showed us around and also gave us lots of recommendations for places to eat along with offering to book our reservation. Nothing was too much trouble for Ezna during our stay, herself and the entire team were extremely hospitable. The location is fantastic at only a short drive into Franschhoek around 5-10 minutes drive. Very reasonable with Uber. Our room was absolutely beautiful with exquisite views of the mountains and vineyard. The pool area is wonderful and very relaxing with picturesque views also. A great breakfast was served each morning to a very high standard which we thoroughly enjoyed. The service and hospitality here is simply fantastic and we will most definitely be staying here again. Thank you to Ezna and team for making our stay here so perfect for us :-)

Wonderful views, fantastic service. A family run business that makes you feel at home away from home. Soak in the quietness of a breathtaking view of the Franschoek mountains. You'll find it real hard to leave the simple comforts.
