4 beautiful guest houses nestled in the heart of the Garden Route. The peace of farm living conveniently located between Knysna, George, with the villages of Sedgefield & Wilderness on your doorstep. Private, modern and luxurious with egyptian cotton sheets, extra length king-size beds (singles on request), uncaoped free wifi and Netflix in all rooms. Cottages have private balconies with uninterrupted views of fynbos, lakes, mountains & forests. A photographers and bird watchers dream. Close to restaurants, Farmers Markets, stunning beaches and centrally placed for a true Garden Route adventure. Low light pollution leads to stunning starry nights and your private fire-pit and gas barbeque give you an opportunity to spend evenings outside listening to nature and experiencing real farm-life while sleeping in luxury. We have our own water source, so have no water restrictions. The farm is along 2 kms of graval road which is not suited for sports cars.

It was the most amazing and relaxing breakaway we ever had!! Peaceful, quiet and secluded. The rooms were perfectly made and the hosts thought of everything a guest might need and added a few extra treats!! Thank you!!

The FreeDrift Cottage was incredible, much more luxurious and beautiful than we expected. The style of the cottage was very home-like, clean and practical, with a bed so comfortable that we cannot wait to come back. The balcony and hottub made our stay feel like a movie and the views were incredible. Though the spider warning left us quite nervous, though that is a given.
Overall, our stay was beyond perfect, really would recommend this to anyone, it exceeded our expectations.

Beautiful farm stay with very thoughtful hosts Diane & Ant. We had arrived on a Friday evening after traveling from Cape Town, and our hosts kindly made a fire for us which was ready for a braai when we arrived. It was very thoughtful of our hosts since we had only let them know that we were running late but had not specifically asked them to build a fire for us.

Extremely disappointing experience.

We love farm stays but this was dreadful and cannot believe this cost two thirds of the 5 star gem we have stayed in the week before.
We don’t find simple if neat, equipped well and clean. This is overpriced and under whelming.
It is also not like website at all. It is tired, missing furniture like loungers, no cushions. And much needed like a washing up tray, working dustbin, new carpets and new unmarked curtains.

As a pet friendly cottage the garden was a disaster. The fence just a mishmash of reeds and flimsy. The garden was literally just soil/sand and mud with some fruit trees dropping fruit and debris creating a fly and fruit fly haven. We had to close every window and door inside and sitting outside was impossible. Thank goodness they did have an air conditioner but not the outdoor experience one wants.
The garden could be lovely if some attention was paid to it. Wood chips put down. Trees tended to. Also no solar lights still worked.

Professional to book and pay but after that literally no human interaction at all. Missed the ‘hospitality’ memo. Not even welcome hello and to check we were okay.

On a recent family trip around SA we booked this place as a simple two-night stopover. In hindsight we should have stayed for a few more days as this place is just fantastic! Would give Equleni Guest Farm a 10 out of 5. Simple Accommodation yet they have thought about almost everything, stunning setting, close and easy access to most tourist spots and just feels like a home away from home.

We stayed for 3 nights and had the most wonderful and peaceful time - including our teenage daughter (also because of the very good wifi:)) and doggy. The view is so beautiful. The cabin is very well equipped and even though it was the middle of winter not cold at all. There is a gas heater if needed. The beds are super comfortable. We had the wood fired hot tub at an additional cost and loved that too. We hopefully can return very soon again!

We enjoyed the beautiful setting and the amount of detail in the cottage.
Thank you so much for making the effort to let us have an unforgetable weekend!
Milk in the fridge, fresh water, crisp towels, gasbraai, gasheater, marshmallows for the little one....is a few things that added to the personal touches.

My family and I recently spent 4 nights at Equleni Guest Farm, and we all absolutely loved it. The cottage was clean and well equipped, and located in the most beautiful spot with sunset views over Swartvlei. There was lots of attention to detail with chocolates on our bed on arrival, and treats for our dog, extra firewood, and the towels were replaced with fresh ones during our stay. Check in and out was easy, and Diane was a warm and approachable hostess. Our highlight was sunsets in the hot tub and braais under the starts in the evenings. We will definitely be back!

Aaaah what bliss to arrive at Equleni Guest Farm with the Hot Tub warm and ready for us. Not to mention the salad and braai meat to put on the gas griller - it was shear magic at this wonderful venue where there was not one thing forgotten. Heated sheets and fantastic shower that worked 100%. I would definitely give Equleni a 10 out of 10 for everything. Thanks guys it was awesome stay.

A perfect cottage in the country - absolute peace and tranquility with all the luxuries one could ask for. The little attention to detail created by the owners are absolutely stunning and makes one feel completely at home. Even the sugar birds have their juice bottle ! The bedding, fire place, hot tub and walks are just fantastic - the morning breakfast delivered to the cottage was an absolute treat ! Thank you so much for the most enjoyable stay = although our home was only 25km away we felt like we were in a different world !
