Starry Starry Night is an absolute gem! The scenery is breathtaking and the cottage Gaia is charming and had everything we needed (and more) including a cosy fireplace, large deck and braai area. I was so impressed with all the little touches throughout the trip - welcome drinks, delicious rusks, yoga mats, trader's corner of local products, quality coffee and access to the herb garden.

There is also so much to do on the property. We ventured on multiple hikes and visited the spectacular waterfall Gais's gift. In the evening we enjoyed the kol kol hot tub under the insanely starry night sky in absolute silence.

The staff were also wonderful. We received such a warm greeting, and while attending to all our needs we were also given our space. If you are not in the mood to cook, they also offer hearty home food which was delicious.

We will definitely be back in the summer to enjoy the pool and waterfall some more.

Starry Starry Night, was such a unique experience! It’s away from the busyness of the city. The nature is totally breathtaking here with the scenery changing by the day. Magical sunrise, clouds in the afternoon that are rolling over the mountain top’s! You can have short hikes or long, there’s a small river with the cleanest fresh mountain water. With our first time being in the klein Karoo, I was expecting it to get hot in the afternoons. This was not the case at all, in the afternoon the breeze comes from the high mountains and just so refreshing! Lastly to mention, we did not feel like clients while staying here, rather like part of a really nice family! JD, Francois & their team are just magical! Thank you SSN family! ⭐ ⭐⭐⭐⭐

We had an unforgettable time at Starry Starry Night. Accommodation and views are as good and even better than the descriptions and photos! Communication before and during the stay is tops, and the team is so very helpful and friendly. The hosts really do think of every little thing that makes the stay not only comfortable but also super special. We highly recommend having the Starry Starry Night experience. The Kolkol is a must!

Just magical! Whether you want to relax and medidate or hit the hiking trails to the rock pools, Starry Starry Night is the perfect location. Migrate from your private sunrise deck to the numerous rock pools and then on to the sunset boma, pool and hot tub. Beautiful views and luxurious accommodation top it all. We will definitely visit again.

Starry Starry Night is most definitely a special place deep in the mountains of Montagu. The access road can be slightly tricky, but once you get to the top you know it was all worth it! The staff are so warm, friendly, helpful and just wonderful humans. From being welcomed with big smiles to the communication during the stay, the Starry Starry Night staff provide high levels of service. The views are incredible, the starts seem to beckon you to keep looking up, the hiking trails are great fun with lovely rock pools in some of the trails, and of course a Kol Kol wood-fired hot tub is the absolute catalyst for relaxation on any getaway thesedays. We especially loved the added special touches in the cottage like the s'mores kit, rusks, and for coffee lovers - freshlyground coffee and a Moka pot! Also ordered some of the farmstyle meals, which were so yummy and good portions.
Thank you Starry Starry Night for your blissful retreat in the mountains!

Starry Starry nights are exactly what we got, and more, at this secluded mountain eco oasis with the most generous, knowledgeable and attentive hosts imaginable. We sipped chenin next to a raging fire, negotiated beautifully planned hillside paths with our dogs in tow, and saw daylight creep into and slip out of the gorgeous valley below from the boma perched high up next to the firepit and pool. Cottages are well appointed and everything is eco friendly & off the grid. This is the ultimate escape barely 2h40 from Cape Town. When can we go again?

Starry Starry Night is more than just an Airbnb - it's truly an experience. Francois and his incredible team treated me and my girlfriend to one of the most memorable holidays either of us have ever experienced. From the moment we booked, the communication was top notch and the attention to detail was in a class of its own.

We were immediately greeted with a warm welcome and a detailed breakdown of what to see, what to bring and what wonderful things their team offers. The cottage itself is full of wonderful and thoughtful details like the hot chocolate, the smores kit, and the delicious welcome drinks. Everything and anything you could need has been provided. It is clean, cozy and extremely comfortable. We didn't want to go home.

We highly recommend you take full advantage of everything on offer as it really makes the experience that much better. We thoroughly enjoyed the picnic basket with its delicious homemade iced tea while we soaked in the hot tub. It was just perfect. The dinner is also a must! We indulged in the delicious lamb curry and beef lasagna with the accompanying delectable malva pudding and apple crumble.

I could spend the entire review recounting our fantastic experience but this is something you should just experience for yourself. You won't be sorry!

I can honestly say that Starry Starry Night is one of the most magical places on earth. A dream and vision realised by the owners, Francois and JD, it is evident and tangible in all the exquisite details. The bunches of fynbos flowers, the aromatherapy clay squares to brighten the smells in the space, the humour in all the little messages guiding you through your stay, the huge herb garden where you are welcome to forage for your refreshing drinks and meals, the kol kol at sunset. But I won't tell you more as you need to explore and experience the magic for yourself. Just know that the adventure starts from the moment you start driving up the mountain and the winds whoosh through the silvery and abundant fynbos.

Absolutely amazing. The most well equipped BnB I've ever been to. Serene, beautiful, perfect. Definitely coming back (again and again and again). You can also order food from them that they bring down the mountain, and it is exquisite. Every bite of every meal we had was awe-inspiring. The hike to the river and the rock pools was as amazing as the destination. If you need to escape from EVERYTHING for a few days, there is no better place.
