Wow!! Really don't know where to start. What a beautiful stay we had at Vrisch Gewagt. Peaceful, comfortable and the friendly welcome and care from Chantelle, was outstanding. There really is nothing that we could fault in our stay. We loved every minute. We were blessed with so many free gifts on arrival, from Olive Oil, to Wine, To fresh Veggies. Thank you. We will definitely be back. Loved, loved our stay and a special thank you to Chantelle for making our stay so welcoming.
I am left with a bitter taste. The "deposit" of R 1000 is a bit cheeky as it is, but to have to wait a week for it to be refunded, and then only after a prompting, and then the insult of being paid R 900 in refund with no explanation! No response as yet from them as to when the last measly R100 will be returned. The poetic description of the location conjures dreamy thoughts until the reality strikes. The site of power lines obscuring the view, and the sound of rumbling trucks and traffic at high speed on the adjoining tar road spoil what would otherwise be a very peaceful place. (At least at night the traffic subsided) Place needs some attention.
We stayed for two nights and found our cottage, Cooks Cottage, well equipped and very nicely decorated. The lamb, vegetables and eggs we ordered were absolutely delicious and fresh. The bottle of wine and olive oil supplied at no charge were a splendid surprise and nice touch to our arrival after a long day travelling. A suggestion we have is perhaps to provide a trolley of some sorts to assist carrying one's luggage and groceries from the car to the cottage (Cooks Cottage) as it is quite a way to carry without any assistance in that heat.
Special place with everything you need. We could have spent our whole holiday on the farm. Everyone loved it. Look forward to returning. Nature and solitude. Soul food. Chantelle was great and the kids loved Wendy and Marnu
Beautiful tasteful accomodation in a magnificent setting. Chantelle was an excellant hostess, warm and efficient and her lamb is superb. Lovely to be greeted on arrival with olive oil, olives and wine from the farm. We will return and will recommend it far and wide.
