The best self catering accommodation I have ever booked online! Dave and Les (the hosts) have put tremendous thought and work into this incredible property. A well equipped self catering cottage, with a fire place, renovated bathrooms, outdoor shower and the most sensational hot tub and braai area (very private for each unit) with the best view of the Drakensburg mountains and hillside. The property has access to a beautiful trail for walking, multiple areas with gorgeous flowers and plants and a lake for fishing too. Although well situated for activities, after visiting the area, Ama Casa has the best view and everything else you need for a relaxing, tranquil and rejuvenating stay.

We had a wonderful stay and Ama Casa! The cottage was perfect and we loved the view of the Berg from every window. The hosts Les and Dave were welcoming. We loved sipping sundowners in the super warm Jacuzzi. We will certainly be back as soon as possible. Well worth a visit.

Great location, great hosts, friendly staff, amazing views. I totally enjoyed the clean jacuzzi and privacy. The pool at the premises is not operational due to water restrictions however the pool that is available for guest use is amazing with great views on the berg. Definitely returning 😀

The AMA CASA cottages have a beautiful view of the Drakensbergen Mountains. The location is quiet and peaceful. With you own jacuzzi you can relax. The place is a good starting point for hikes through the mountains or just sit at your terras and enjoy the beautiful landscape

Great value for money and the most incredible view! We loved our cottage, which had everything we needed. The staff were helpful and friendly too. We can't wait to go back again, this time in winter so we can use the fireplace.

Hi Elizabeth. Thank you for your review. Yes, as all our guests comment, our views are magnificent. We would love to have you back in winter which is also a special time of year with lovely warm sunny days and cold evenings, perfect for relaxing in front of the fire. Regards Les

The location of the cottage would be hard to beat, the gardens & views are beautiful. The cottage is very spacious, however it’s tired & dated & would benefit from a refurbishment. There are lots of rules, a list to read & cards posted throughout the property, this felt unwelcoming. We appreciated the comfortable bed & plentiful supply of clean, fresh towels

This cottage was refurbished by a decorator 6 months ago and many guests have enjoyed the new decor. We are surprised by your comments! The 'rules' are intended as information which have been formulated from FAQ's from our guests. We regret that you found them 'unwelcoming' and clearly our position as No.1 in this valley did not meet your expectation!
