Perfect, beautiful location. The room was not what we expected for the tariff payed. Kitchen cupboards hanging, bedside lamp broken and cleanliness was not up to standard. Overall we loved our stay and will most definitely visit again in the future.
We were pleasantly surprised to find a place of solitude, which did not have wifi or cell connectivity, and with walking / hiking trails literally from our front stoep! This is a rare find and was wonderfully enjoyed. There are two private trails from the reserve -2hr which goes over the mountains and drops in the direction of the Oliphant's river, through magnificent fynbos, and culminating with stunning views of the local mountains and citrus plantations. We stayed in cottage #2, which was closest to the mountain, with stunning all round views. The heated outdoor jacuzzi is a bonus, and the cottage is well equipped (no oven but outdoor braai area). We felt very secure and both Anja and Yvette are wonderful hosts. As we travelling during COVID/lockdown, we felt safe as the cottages are far apart, and there is minimal contact with the owners or other guests, even during the hikes.…
My husband and I spent our honeymoon at this little gem. What a lovely experience. We were surrounded by nature and the only sound, apart from the Jacuzzi when switched on, was the birds. The absolute tranquility that you will need to unwind. Lovely braai pit, jacuzzi and beautiful views of the mountains. The cottage we were in was open plan and very spacious and cozy. Fully equipped with everything you'll need. Even sanitizer was provided. Coffee beans and Local Rooibos Tea was provided. I had the best Rooibos tea there! Will definitely visit again.
I brought my family (dog included) for 4 nights to this beautiful and peaceful place - what a treat. Highlights included a jacuzzi, walks in nature and swimming pool. The fact that I could bring my doggie with was a blessing and was even welcome at the Hebron restaurant. There is aircon in the cottage with free coffee beans, rooibos tea and a bag of wood. And the jacuzzi !! Yvette was very helpful and she even makes herbal products which are amazing. Only negative thing are the flies and ticks present in the area but otherwise a perfect holiday for the family. Definitely the best holiday I've had.
Besides the lovely cottage, amenities and nature...we mostly were impressed with the service/staff. We had some car trouble from taking the scenic route...Anja, Yvette and staff jumped in to help with caring hearts. We will definitely come back but next time for longer!
