Hosts Howard and Marion have created a truly sublime Karoo experience with their gorgeous cottages. Spacious yet cozy, they provide absolutely everything one needs for an unforgettable stay. A huge fireplace, super-comfy bed and spectacular views, along with an amazing feast in their gorgeous restaurant cemented our decision to return as soon as possible. Thanks you both. We look forward to seeing you again. Kenny and Andi

Property's Favourite Review
We had the most incredible stay here, and we're sad it wasn't for longer than a night! Howard & Marian go out of their way to make you feel at home. Stunning location with magical sunsets on the edge of town. Beautiful cottage - very large with everything you could ever need. The most comfortable bed too. The boma and pool are beautiful. As for supper, wow!!! It's an absolute must! Michelin star level and the Pavlova is not to be missed. Thanks Howard, Marian & Cheyenne for the warm hospitality - my husband and I and our fur boys had the best time! And in one of our very favorite places!

Response from Howard Mollison, Owner at Karoo View Cottages
Responded 16 Oct 2020
Eish, ladyj10, what kind words. Marion's pavlova is certainly a dream dessert. A friend of ours in the village, Pandora, taught us how to make it, and my word, it certainly is popular. The cottages are big and with summer coming, we are proud to announce that 2 of our cottages are getting private heated plunge pools installed next week. so for summer, cool off in the pool, for winter, heat the pool and watch the stars with a glass of local red. We are glad you guys enjoyed the stay. Travel safely. Howard and Marion.

We had a lovely stay at Karoo View Cottages. It was the last day of our week long road trip through the Klein Karoo and we enjoyed relaxing at this beautiful property. Unfortunately it rained in Prince Albert during our stay, but the room was so nice and comfortable and spacious, with absolutely everything you will need, so we were lying in bed reading while looking out over the beautiful Karoo while watching the much needed rain pouring down. Everything was very clean and communication between management and guests are excellent. We will definitely recommend Karoo View Cottages.

Not a stone was left unturned for the guest’s comfort. Will DEFINITELY return ! Close to town for restaurants, a fully equipped kitchen, the best bed ever, spotless bathroom. Staff were there in minutes when I was too dumb to operate the gas stove, and this place runs like a well oiled machine.

Master Class cottage was just exceptional. The space, privacy, quality of bedding and position is unmatched. We only visit dog friendly places and this was 5 star. Only suggestion is to have a mixer in shower and hard pillow option. Secure parking and heated pool in manicured garden was super.
