Beautiful and peaceful

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 17 Sept 2020
At the beginning of August, my husband, 13-year-old son and I spent two nights at KolKol. The one-bedroomed Brunia Cabin was cosy with a comfortable lounge area, big bathroom and well-equipped kitchen – extra little touches included tasty home-baked rusks, eggs as well as milk and butter in the fridge. The living space opens onto a large wooden deck with its own wood-fired hot-tub. It was so relaxing soaking in the warm water looking out to the magnificent views of the farm. One afternoon, we enjoyed a wonderful 4km walk through the fynbos reserve and saw pretty pincushion proteas as well as the more unusual pom-pom-like KolKol plant.

      Wow this place is just stunning... We stayed in one of the pods for part of our honeymoon and it was just perfect:) We had such a relaxing time - thanks for such a wonderful place. We definitely want to come back again!

      A quite little "wooden" house in the mountain. To relax, to have your own bbq
      and there is a lovely hot tub. Enjoy the view and the silence. Botrivier has some good and nice winery's nearby like Luddite and Beaumont.

      Had a really great two night stay. Peaceful, romantic and the views are stunning! The wood fired hot tub is an absolute winner! Cabin is fully equipped for self catering even down to toothpicks! Really well designed and comfortable cabin. Wish we could have stayed longer!

      We stayed at the new Firelily pod for 4 incredible relaxing days. We'd stayed at one of the cabins 4 years ago and always swore to come back to Kolkol. While I was initially apprehensive about staying in one of the new pods my apprehension was soon a thing of the past. What an incredible place. The views from almost everywhere in the pod are magnificent, the kitchen a delight to cook in (even a pizza oven) and the bedroom and bathroom very comfortable. The best part of the pod is the wood fired hot tub, where we spent many an hour relaxing. We loved our stay and will be back again.
