The welcome to the cottage by Marion was excellent. She catered to all our needs at the drop of a hat. The cottage was pristine and contained all that we required. The bedrooms were more than an adequate size with stunning furnishings. The views were awesome. We were very sorry to say goodbye but we would love to repeat this experience in the near future.

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, Karoo Masterclass, Karoo Mountain View
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.

You stay out of town away from the mains street bussle yet close enough to be there in minutes. Quiet, clean, welcoming, safe, spacious. What more do you need. Real South African hospitality. We were a photographic group who visited the area. Howard & Marion went out of their way to accommodate all of us for an evening of fun with photography. While the wind howled outside, they made us feel welcome inside where we painted with light to our hearts content. We had the most wonderful barbeque with all the accoutrements prepared by our hosts. Wil definitely go back there again..

We spent four very, very snug nights in the "stoep-suite". This is a smaller, separate unit apart from the other cottages. It is just big enough for 2 people and features a mini-kitchen as part of the open plan bedroom and a very spacious, separate bathroom. The suite does not have the traditional karoo stoep, but it does have a decorated, enclosed space to sit outside and braai or gaze at the incredible view. There are plenty of hooks, drawers and a clothes rail for storing items to save space. The nights were quite chilly, however the cast-iron fireplace with ample wood supply very quickly ensured a nice, warm and comfy room. Paired with the electric blankets, it's the perfect way to relax after a long day of exploring the surrounds. The suite was stocked with complimentary milk, juice, cereals, rusks, coffee and tea, as well as washes and lotions in the bathroom. Our room was made up daily, including the fireplace/braai area cleaned and the wood replenished - this was done discreetly by the friendly staff and it made a huge difference returning to a spotless room every day. We found the beds and clean linen comfy, with enough blankets to keep you warm during the night. Whatever we needed was graciously provided at all times of the day. We never had issues with noise. It was certainly worth rising early to enjoy a coffee with rusks while watching the sunrise, diligently accompanied by Fluffball the cat.
