Perfekte ligging in die Karoo.

Perfekte ligging op 'n werkende plaas met baie vriendelike en behulpsame eienaars. Die huis is skoon, netjies en het alles wat mens moontlik mag nodig kry. Die dam is 'n welkome lafenis in die Karoo hitte. Sal vir seker weer daar wil oor bly.

Dit was die 2de keer dat ons hier oorbly en sal beslis weer. Dis skoon, goed toegerus en gerieflik. Baie dankie Nici en Gerald.

Rustig, baie gerieflik saam honde, heerlike plaasdam.

Huisie is omhein so honde kon rondloop. Plaasdam om in te swem maar water is helderskoon en dit het die pragtigste Karoo-uitsig. Vuur klaar gepak - ons kon net aansteek. Het heerlike donderstorm beleef maar pad was nog steeds in goeie toestand. Sal definitief weer hier stop.

Baie netjiese en skoon verblyf!

Ons het die swem laatmiddag in die plaasdam baie geniet! Die huis het alles wat mens nodig het. Ons was spyt dat ons net 1 aand gebly het. Dit was effens van die N12 af, maar die grondpad soontoe was baie goed.

Akkedisbult was 'n skoon, netjiese en gerieflike plaashuis en ideaal vir n halfweg oorstop. My seuntjies het veral die plaasdam baie geniet.

It was one of the best places we have stayed.

Gerald and Nici made us feel very welcome. As if we have known them for years, like old friends. If you are looking for a comfortable, rustic place to stay, then we would recommend Akkedisbult. The cottage was very comfortable with all one would need. The home made rusks was the best, reminded me of home.

Pleasant, clean and neat. Nice, I will definitely stay here again when I am in the area.

Arrived late afternoon. Unloaded and very kind welcome by Nici. Afterwards we braaied delicious mutton chops and ate. Enjoyed the rest of the evening with the farm sounds of sheep and the night sounds of the Karoo animals. Experience an open sky with stargazing. The unit has everything you could possibly need. The bed also slept very well. Definitely a good experience.

Aangenaam, skoon en netjies. Lekker - ek sal beslis weer as ek in dié wêreld kom hier oornag.

Laatmiddag gearriveer. Afgepak en is baie vriendelik deur Nici verwelkom. Daarna lekker skaaptjoppies gebraai en geëet. Die res van die aand lekker gerus met die plaasgeluide van skape en die naggeluide van die Karoodiere geniet. 'n Oop hemel met sterreprag ervaar. Die eenheid het alles wat jy kan nodige hê. Die bed het ook baie lekker geslaap. Beslis 'n goeie ervaring.

Selfs die krieke is stil.

Ons arriveer op `n Sondagmiddag, ongelukkig met `n papwiel, maar na ek dit vervang het, kon ons rustig raak. Die 2 eienaars het kom kennis maak en bied toe aan om stukkende wiel reg te maak. Ek het geprotesteer, dit is tog Sondag, maar die man het gesê geen moeite. So kon ons die stilte inasem. Die huis en alles was 5-ster-gehalte, van vars melk in yskas tot braaihout klaar gepak. Aangesien ons in die toekoms gereeld daardie roete moet ry, sal dit ons gereelde halfpad ruskans wees. Nogmaals baie dankie.

Could enjoy the Karoo again on Akkedisbult.

Once again it was a wonderful experience to stay at Akkedisbult. It is very popular and we were happy to book 2 nights. Nici and Gerald are two very special people who like to share their farm with others. Lizard Hill is a lovely home with more than you may need. The silence, stars, sunrise and sunset are new every day. The long stretches that can be walked are always a journey of discovery. It was nice to see the dog and pig friends again. We wanted to book again for December, but this time we were too late to get a booking. Thank you Nici and Gerald, until next time, because there will definitely be another time. May it soon rain a lot on New Dam during the new season. Greetings until next time.

Kon weer die Karoo geniet op Akkedisbult.

Weereens was dit 'n wonderlike ervaring om oor te bly op Akkedisbult. Dit is baie gewild, en ons was gelukkig om 2 aande te kon bespreek. Nici en Gerald is twee besonderse mense wat graag hulle plaas met ander deel. Akkedisbult is 'n heerlike huis met meer as wat jy nodig mag hê. Die stilte, sterre, sonsopkoms en -ondergaan is elke dag nuut. Die lang ente wat gestap kan word is altyd 'n ontdekkingreis. Dit was lekker om weer die honde- en varkvriende te sien. Ons wou weer bespreek het vir Desember, maar die keer was ons te laat om 'n bespreking te kry. Baie dankie Nici en Gerald, tot 'n volgende keer, want daar gaan beslis weer 'n volgende keer wees. Mag dit gou en baie reën op Nuwe Dam gedurende die nuwe seisoen. Groetnis tot 'n volgende keer.

Die rustigheid en stilte op die plaas ver van enige hoofroete was wonderlik.

Ons het 'n bekostigbare en skoon oornag plek gesoek vir ons reis tussen Kaapstad en Johannesburg met 2 aparte slaapkamers en troeteldier vriendelik en Akkedisbult was net die plek. Die huisie is volledig toegerus, en het 'n regte plaashuis-atmosfeer. Die plaas is afgeleë en die stilte en rustigheid was tasbaar. Die kamers is gerieflik en skoon, die eienaars het kom hallo se en is regtig vriendelik en het ons baie tuis laat voel. Ek wens ons kon langer bly, maar sal definitief weer terugkeer.

Ek kan Akkedisbult beslis aanbeveel. Dit is pragtig, netjies en stil, en die eienaars is baie vriendelik. Die huis is omhein, so ons kon rustig by 'n vuurtjie kuier terwyl ons twee honde rondgesnuffel het. Kom hierheen as jy wil rus!

Pragtige, afgeleë akkommodasie.

Die huis is uiters goed toegerus deur Nici met fyn aanvoeling van reisigers se behoeftes. Die huis het 'n gesellige kuierstoep en braai geriewe. Dit is in 'n mooi omgewing geleë met lekker geleenthede om te stap. Hul gasvryheid laat mens dadelik tuis voel en ons sal enige tyd weer daar oornag. Baie dankie vir heerlike verblyf.

Amazing sleepover on our way to the Cape.

What an excellent and safe place to stay. One of the best equipped places I have ever stayed at anywhere in the world. A tranquil environment where you can really become yourself again. Excellent hosts that make sure the smallest things are in place. Even a packed fire to relax to and light at your arrival. Excellent!

Rus. Vrede. Stilte. Perfek om jou batterye te herlaai.

Rus. Vrede. Stilte. Van die verwelkomingsblomme, vars melk in die yskas, tuisgebakte beskuit en die klaar gepakte hout in die braai tot die duisende sterre en ooptes van die Bo-Karoo, net een gedagte: salf vir die gemoed van 'n moeë stedeling. Ek weet nie wie van ons of ons hondjie het dit die meeste geniet nie. Net een negatiewe kommentaar - dis te ver van ons tuiste om elke naweek hier deur te bring. Baie dankie vir die voorreg!

Gerald en Nici is sout van die aarde mense. Hulle het uit hul pad gegaan om ons te help met ons papwiele - dankie daarvoor. Ons twee hondjies het die toe erf baie geniet. 'n Bonus was die vars melk. Njam-njam!! Nogmaals baie dankie vir julle gasvryheid. 10 uit 10!

Very comfortable, neat, clean and fully equipped.

The attention to detail and effort in making this a comfortable and enjoyable stay for guests was striking. These little touches included a place to put down bags, enough hanging space on the wall, wood packed in the braai ready to be lit, clean grid and braai tools, spices, salad dressing, enough ice, water and cool drink in the fridge, a container with sweets the table, etc. etc. And then Nici and her husband still personally made sure we were okay.

This review has been translated,click hereto view the original version.

Besonder gerieflik, netjies, skoon en volledig toegerus.

Aandag aan detail om dit vir gaste gerieflik en aangenaam te maak was opvallend, soos bv. plek om tasse neer te sit, genoeg hakke teen die muur, hout wat gepak is in braaiplek gereed om aangesteek te word, skoon rooster en braaigereedskap, speserye, slaaisous, genoeg ys, water en koeldrank in die yskas, ‘n bakkie met lekkers op die tafeltjie, ens. ens. En dan kom Nici en haar man nog persoonlik seker maak dat als in orde is.

Fantastic!

We would recommend Akkedisbult to anyone! They were accommodating for our two miniature Schnauzers who were travelling with us right from the start. The cottage was very neat and clean and we couldn't have asked for more. Akkedisbult is definitely our stop over of choice when we drive from Pretoria to Hermanus.

This review has been translated,click hereto view the original version.

Fantasties!

Ons sal Akkedisbult vir enige een aanbeveel! Hul was van die staanspoor af akkommoderend vir ons twee miniatuur Schnauzers wat saam met ons gereis het. Die kothuis was netjies en skoon en ons kon nie vir beter gevra het nie. Akkedisbult is vir seker ons oorslaapplek van keuse wanneer die langpad tussen Hermanus en Pretoria aangepak word.

'n Versteekte juweel van panoramiese ruimte, vrede, vryheid, stilte en unieke Karoo-gasvryheid onder 'n sterrehemel van God se genade!

Fantasties en asemrowend was my eerste indrukke en met die wegry moes ek net erken ek moet bysit onvergeetlik, Prentjiemooi en privaat. Nici se gasvryheid verdien nie 'n 5 ster nie, maar 'n 10/10! Ongeveer 12km+ weg vanaf die N12 neem Akkedisbult 'n moeë reisiger weg uit die baan van 'n gejaagde ekonomie en besige snelweg se geluier. Die huisie is privaat geleë, maar prentjiemooi en uitstekend versorg in die Karoovlaktes wat haar arms om jou oopgooi. Saans is die sterrehemel 'n flikkerende kersfeesboom en voel jy naby aan God en die natuur. Die huisie het omtrent alles en nog meer in, want Nici reik ver uit na haar gaste met verwelkomende sjokolade, vars melk, beskuit en regte koffie. Die vuurherd is gepak en jy kan net uitpak en ontspan; niks is uit plek nie. Gaan stap 'n draai in die veld om daai stadstof op jou skoene af te skud en ontmoet die diere van die plaas wat ewe nuuskierig kom groet. Neewat, Nici en Geraldt het groot harte van goud en ek sal hulle ter enige tyd aanbeveel. Dit was 'n voorreg en wonderlik om van jul gasvryheid gebruik te maak en graag sal ek my gesin dieselfde ondervinding in die toekoms gun.

Vriendelike boeregasvryheid en pragtig en funksionele vyfster verblyf reg in die Karoo!

Die vriendelike ontvangs deur en lekker gesels met die eienaars het die aankoms net soveel meer aangenaam gemaak. Die geriewe was alles silwerskoon en van hoogstaande gehalte. Alles beskikbaar vir ‘n lekker kuier: vars melk in die yskas, genoeg filterkoffie en hout klaar reg gepak vir 'n braai en natuurlik oorgenoeg vars Karoolug. Die uitsig oor die vlaktes en sonsopkoms en -ondergang oor die Karoo maak die verblyf net soveel meer aangenaam. ‘n Plekkie waar enige reisiger tussen Gauteng en die Kaap moet oornag.

Dankie Nici, Gerald en Allen vir julle gasvryheid en groot bederf om ons seuns op die plaas te laat ry met die motorfietse. Dankie ook vir julle hulp om ons met die bakkie te begelei op 'n nat grondpad. Baie lekker om al die plaasdiere ook te ontmoet. Swem in die plaasdam 'n bonus.

Heerlike karoo kuier.

Onbeskryflik! Nooit gedink dit sou so lekker wees om in die Karoo te kuier nie, het definitief my siening verander. Op ons road trip deur die land, was Akkedis Bult definitief ons gunsteling van al die plekke waar ons gebly het. Netjies, skoon en baie goed toegerus. Het alles gehad wat mens sou benodig en selfs meer. Melk, beskuit en die hout reeds gepak. Al die dierebesoekers by die cottage, skape, varkies, perde en honde. Plaasdam lekker om af te koel van die Karoo-hitte. Ons gaan definitief plan maak om weer al die pad van die Kaap weer te kom kuier.

Fantastiese gasvryheid en ligging om die rustige Karoo-lewe te beleef.

Dit was so lekker om iets van die plaaslewe in die Karoo te beleef. Ongelooflike gasvryheid, belewing van die troeteldiere: twee skape, nege varkies en die honde. Wat 'n fees van rustighied en die asemrowende hemelruim wat mens in die aand toevou met die prag en praal van die sterre. Ons sal enige tyd weer kuier sodra ons weer ons koppe moet skoonkry van die gejaag en gewoel van die stad.

Rustige Karoo-verblyf op die plaas.

Heerlike verblyf op `n Karoo plaas met die stilte en rustigheid van die Karoo. Die plek het selfs sy eie swemdam.

Verblyf was absoluut uitstekend!

Die selfsorghuisie is besonder goed toegerus en daar is mooi gedink en aan al mens se behoeftes voorsien! Vanaf afkoel in 'n plaasdam, met trappies in en uit, tot en met braaisout. Die stilte en mooi uitsigte maak dat mens eintlik daar wil nog 'n nag of twee oorstaan. Hier is ook besonder baie voëls te sien.

Perfect stop over between CT and Johannesburg for self catering people who travel with pets.

Well-equipped self-catering accommodation. All the finer details attended to. Spotless, very comfortable and most welcoming. It’s position 12 km off the main road allows one to appreciate the vast remoteness of the Northern Cape, as well as its wonderful night skies.

Lekkerder as by die see.

Ons het baie uitgesien om weer in die Karoo oor te bly en was aangenaam verras. Weg van alles. Vriendelike mense. Daar was ook gereeld plaasdiertjies wat kom kuier het. Mooi tuintjie met voëltjies. Toegespan sodat ons nie hoef te bekommer oor ons hondjie nie. Lekker stapplek. Ons was nog so bevoorreg om albei middae 'n lekker agressiewe donderstorm te beleef. Baie dankie.

Ons verblyf van 3 nagte by Akkedisbult was heerlik en met ons vertrek dadelik gedink: Akkedisbult sien ons weer!

Akkedisbult Cottage was heerlik! En die huisie is nog lekkerder en geriefliker as wat ons gedink het dit sou wees. Ons 3 nagte was te kort. Ons wou ontspan, rustigheid ervaar, en net wegkom uit die stad. Ons kon dit alles doen, plus sterre kyk, braai in die aand, en natuurlik het die plaasdam lafenis gebied teen die snikhete van die Karoo. Die huisie is goed toegerus, en die omheinde tuin ideaal vir die honde om hul ding te doen. Dankie aan Nici wat sorg dat hierdie plekkie in die Karoo so gerieflik is, en vir haar besorgdheid dat alles in orde is vir ons verblyf. Akkedisbult Cottage sien ons beslis in die toekoms weer, en die keer vir langer!

Wat 'n aangename ervaring, in alle opsigte!

Ons het op pad Wes-Kaap toe oorgeslaap by Akkedisbult en kan net met lof praat oor ons ervaring daar. Die reëlings vooraf met Nici was professioneel en pynloos en ons is vriendelik ontvang deur Gerald. Die kothuis self is ruim, skoon, goed toegerus en baie gerieflik. Die aandag aan detail was rêrig 'n aangename verrassing - daar is self 'n kopflits, wat baie handig te pas gekom het, en genoeg ys in die vrieskas. 'n Bonus was die spekvretertjie wat op die stoep gebroei het en die laat-middag donderstorm met 'n pragtige sonsondergang. Akkedisbult sien ons definitief weer!

Beautiful and comfortable accommodation, friendly hosts with an eye for detail, and what a setting for sundowners!

We loved our stay. We found it easily. As soon as I saw the verandah I wished we were staying more than one night. The hosts pay attention to detail and the place is very well equipped and comfortable. The hosts are also very good communicators and we were made to feel immediately at home. It was also fun to meet so many of the farm animals. Would recommend it and intend to stay there again some time, for more than one night.

Very satisfied. Truly dog friendly accommodation.

We travel to the Cape at least once a year with our 2 miniature schnauzers. Often dog friendly accommodation is not properly fenced and do we have to keep the poor doggies, after a day on the road, leashed or locked inside the accommodation. Merely for being properly fenced, Akkedisbult gets my vote. But then there's also all the carefully considered detail in the house itself. Well equipped, exquisite and clean. One night here is too short to draw the full value of this blissfully quiet place.

This review has been translated,click hereto view the original version.

Hoogs tevrede. Ware hond-vriendelike verblyf.

Ons reis minstens 1 x per jaar Kaap toe met ons twee Miniatuur Schnauzers. Baie dikwels is hond-vriendelike verblyf nie behoorlik omhein nie en moet mens die arme woefies na 'n dag in die kar aan bande hou of in die gasteplek toemaak. Net vir die veilige omheining kry Akkedisbult my stem. Maar dan is daar al die weldeurdagte detail in die huis self. Dis goed toegerus en baie keurig en skoon. Een nag hier is net beslis te min om waarde te put uit die salige stilte.

Ons het heerlik gebly by Akkedisbult, net jammer ons kon net een aand bly en dat ons in die donker daar aangekom het. Die huis is netjies en silwerskoon met goeie kwaliteit beddegoed en benodigdhede. Ons sal beslis weer by Akkedisbult tuisgaan wanneer ons weer 'n "road trip" doen en sommer 'n paar nagte oorbly!

Die kothuis is baie netjies en goed toegerus en die vuurherd op die stoep is ideaal vir braai of net te sit en kuier by die vuur. Ons sal beslis teruggaan.

Ruim en uiters volledige, semi- luukse verblyf met 'n asemrowende uitsig oor die vlaktes. Veilig en maklik met troeteldiere. Groot kombuis en lekker kuierstoep.

Best place that I have stayed at during my 2 week tour through South Africa.

It was a pleasure to stay at Akkedisbult - the cottage is very neat and well-equipped and the service is excellent - there is even a heap of firewood in the braai when you arrive. The area is exceptional with wide open spaces and a lot of opportunities to stargaze. Note: Follow the access route as indicated on TravelGround - there are other routes that can be followed, but they are longer and the other roads are in a worse condition.

This review has been translated,click hereto view the original version.

Beste plek waar ek gebly het op my twee weke reis deur Suid-Afrika.

Dit is 'n absolute plesier om by Akkedisbult te bly - die kothuis is baie netjies en goed toegerus en die dienslewering voortreflik - daar is selfs 'n hopie vuurmaakhout reeds aangepak in die braai-area as mens arriveer. Die omgewing is iets besonders met uitgestrekte vlaktes en baie goeie geleenthede vir sterre kyk in die nag. Nota: Volg die toegangsroete soos aangedui op die LekkeSlaap webwerf - daar is ander roetes wat gevolg kan word, maar hulle is langer en die ander paaie is in 'n slegter kondisie.

What a nice surprise.

After we drove 12 km on a farm road we arrived at the typical Karoo farm, and went past the main homestead to the cottage. Everything was great, neat and fully equipped, even rusks and fresh milk in the fridge. A nice braai area on the patio with the fire already packed. We experienced friendly country hospitality here. We could've easily stayed there for a week admiring the wonderful starry skies every night thanks to the tranquil Karoo atmosphere.

This review has been translated,click hereto view the original version.

Wat 'n aangename verrassing!

Nadat ons 12 km met 'n plaaspaadjie gery het kom ons by die tipiese Karooplaas uit verby die hoofopstal tot by die "cottage". Alles was in 'n puik, netjiese toestand volledig toegerus ook beskuit en selfs vars melk in die yskas. 'n Lekker braaiplek op die stoep met 'n vuur wat klaar gepak was reg vir aansteek. Vriendelike boeregasvryheid ervaar ons hier. Hier sal ons maklik 'n week in die rustige Karoo atmosfeer kan bly en elke aand die wonderlike sterrehemel beskou!

Hierdie huisie was alles en meer wat ons verwag het. Bly ten minste twee nagte! Die omgewing is pragtig en die sonsopkoms asemrowend! Aandag aan klein besonderhede het ons verblyf baie tuis laat voel. Lekker vars melk in die yskas asook filterkoffie en hout was reg gepak vir 'n vuurtjie. Boonop is dit een van die skoonste plekke waar ons al gebly het! Ons het heerlik in die water afgekoel - wat seperaat veilig omhein is van die res van die huisie (báie veilig vir kinders en honde). Daar is ook 'n afdak langs die huis vir jou kar. Akkedisbult is perfek vir 'n klein familie, paartjie of enkelpersoon. Ons sou beslis weer hier inloer, maar vir langer!

Peace and quiet.

Rest, peace and comfort in excess! One of the reasons why we visited this place is because of the positive feedback from previous visitors and we can confirm everything that they said. Like typical towns people we packed everything that we can't go without, but everything was there already. From salt, spices, coffee, tea, rusks, toothpaste, ice, etc. Just bring your own meat, bread, drinks and come and relax. Enjoyed the visit with all of the amenities and more! Thank you Gerald and Nicki for sharing this incredible place with us and making us feel so at home. Will definitely be back for more than 4 nights.

Stilte en vrede.

Rus, vrede en gerief in oormaat! Een van die redes waarom ons die plek besoek het was die positiewe terugvoer van vorige besoekers en ons kan net ten sterkste alles beaam wat reeds gesê is. Soos tipiese stedelinge het ons alles ingepak waarsonder ons tog nie kan klaarkom nie, maar alles is reeds daar. Van sout, speserye, koffie, tee, beskuit, tandepasta, ys, ens. Bring net jou vleis, brood en drinkgoed en kom ontspan. Heerlik gekuier met alle geriewe en meer! Dankie Gerald en Nicki dat julle bereid is om die verruklike plekkie met ons te deel en ons so tuis laat voel. Sal beslis terug wees vir meer as net die 4 aande.

It is lovely on the farm!

Nici and Gerald are wonderful hosts! Very nice porch and braai with a well-equipped kitchen, nice socialising area and spacious bedroom. Next time we will definitely stay longer.

Ag dis lekker op die plaas!

Nici en Gerald was wonderlike gashere! Baie lekker stoep en braai met 'n goed ingerigte kombuis, lekker kuiervertrek en ruim slaapkamer. Volgende keer bly ons beslis langer!

We were pleasantly surprised and appreciated the quiet expanse of the Bo-Karoo. Will confidently recommend.

Karoo-gasvryheid op sy beste.

Ons was aangenaam verras en het die wydheid en stilte van die Bo-Karoo waardeer. Sal dit met vrymoedigheid aanbeveel.

Awesome scenery, quiet, peaceful, comfortable and neat — just what the doctor ordered.

The scenery is something to look forward to. The unit is comfortably equipped, spacious en one of the nicest things is having your early morning coffee with rusks on the stoep. This place is pet friendly. We were on a tour with our two dogs and the big yard offers enough space for the dogs to run and play. The unit is also enclosed with a wire fence. Really liked Akkedisbult Cottage.

Asemrowende natuurskoon, stil, rustig, gemaklik en netjies ─ net wat die siel nodig het.

Die natuurskoon is natuurlik iets om na uit te sien. Die eenheid is gemaklik toegerus, eenheid is baie groot en een van die lekkerste van die eenheid was die vroegoggendkoffie op die stoep met 'n beskuit. Plekkie is lieflik. Die plekkie is ook lekker toegerus vir diere. Ons het met ons twee honde getoer en die eenheid het 'n draadheining met 'n groot erf vir die honde om rond te hardloop en te kan speel. Het baie van die plek gehou.

Die gasheer en gasvrou is uiters vriendelik en hulpvaardig. Hier kan jy vir 'n week en meer in totale rustigheid jou batterye weer herlaai. Die huis bied alles wat jy nodig het en is baie gerieflik. Ons sal weer hier kom afsaal.

Brilliant!

A true Karoo farm. The Karoo shrubs were in full bloom, beautiful purple flowers after the rain. Look out for wildlife, little back, jackal, and birds. The night was quiet with just the sounds of the veld. The night sky was bright and crowded with stars. Excellent accommodation, expecially the bit veranda and built-in braai. We had a lovely braai and chatted until the early hours, and tried to identify the calls of the wildlife. Our host, Nici, went out of her way to make us feel at home, wonderful person. Yes, out here you can breathe.

Briljant!

Hier ervaar jy 'n Karooplaas ten volle. Die Karoo-bossies was in blom, pragtige pers blommetjies, na die reën. Mooi kyk, daar is wild, bokkies, jakkalsies en voëls. Die nag was stil met naggeluide. Die hemelruim en sterre was ongelooflik helder. Die verblyf was uitstekend, veral die groot onderdakstoep met ingeboude braaigeriewe. Ons het heerlik gebraai en tot ounag gesels, ook naggeluide probeer identifiseer. Ons gasvrou, Nici, het uit haar pad gegaan om ons tuis te laat voel, oulike mens. Ja, hier kon ons werklik asemhaal.

If you love people, Nicki and Gerald will be the perfect hosts and they will not bother you. Everything and more. Don't just stay for one night. Relax and enjoy peach in heaven on earth!

Raak aan die sterre.

As jy wil voel asof die sterre so naby is jy kan aan hulle vat, kom bly hier! As jy "5-ster" blyplek soek kom bly by Akkedisbult. As jy lief is vir mense dan sal Nicki en Gerald jou gemoed stil maak tog sal hulle jou nie pla nie. Alles en meer. Moenie net een nag hier bly nie. Rus en geniet vrede in die hemel op aarde.

Puik verblyf in 'n goed toegeruste huis - alles wat jy nodig het is daar. Gerald en Nici laat jou dadelik tuis voel. Indien jy nodig het om jou batterye te herlaai is dít die plek - stilte, vars lug, naggeluide en 'n sterreprag. Kan dit vir almal aanbeveel ─ sal dit definitief weer besoek. P.S.

Pragtige natuurskoon, veilig, baie vriendelike gasheer, soos ons eie huisie gevoel.

Ons het ons verblyf by Akkedisbult baie geniet! 'n Wonderskone Karoo-belewenis, 'n ware stukkie paradys. Ons het baie veilig gevoel met net die voëls en plaasdiere se geluide om ons. Gerald was baie vriendelik en behulpsaam met interessante inligting oor die plaas. Dit was soos ons eie huisie met al die ekstras waaraan 'n goeie gasheer en gasvrou sal dink. Dit was ook lekker om genoeg tafels te hê om op te werk en te eet. Die rakke in die badkamer is ook baie handig om badkamersakkies en klere op neer te sit. Ons was al in baie honde-vriendelike plekke, maar dis die eerste keer dat ons hondjies baie veilig binne die "doggy-proof" heining kon rondloop. Ons sal dit vir enigiemand aanbeveel en sal self weer wil gaan!

Very nice and relaxed.

If you are looking for a nice place to relax and soak-up the peace and quiet of the Karoo, you have to stay here. The little house is well-equipped with a very nice patio and braai. The owners are very friendly and do justice to the term "Karoo hospitality". We really enjoyed it. We will definitely call again.

Verskriklik lekker en ontspanne.

As jy nou 'n mooi rustige plekkie soek om te ontspan in die stilte van die Karoo moet jy vir seker hier draai maak. Die huisie is goed toegerus met die lekkerste stoep en braai. Die eienaars is baie vriendelik en ontvang jou met egte Karoo gasvryheid. Ons het dit so geniet. Ons sal vir seker weer daar gaan bly!

Dit is effe ver van die teerpad af vir slegs een nag se oorslaap, maar vir meer as een nag is dit 'n baie goeie bestemming. Die huis is netjies en het alles in wat benodig word - selfs vars blomme! Daar is melk in die yskas, beskuit, koffie, tee en selfs basiese kookbenodigdhede in die huis.

Oornag van Kaap na Kempton.

Akkedisbult het ons stoutste verwagtinge oortref - en dit een van my beste verjaarsdae ooit gemaak! Die fyn detail met kassies en rakkies oral om 'goeters' op te sit, selfs in die badkamer, twee stoele in die slaapkamer en twee kampstoele op die stoep lui al die regte klokkies. Elke denkbare item wat mens aan kan dink is in die kassies. Nici en Gerald het teen 'n minimale bedraggie vir ons die heerlikste kos aangedra vir aandete en ontbyt in die oulikste houers en piekniekmandjie. Die ossewa-braai is uniek en werk soos 'n bom. 'n 5-ster ete van formaat! Daai 12 km-grondpaadjie kan selfs met 'n platkar gery word met bietjie omsigtigheid as die voorste 'spoiler' nie te laag is nie - maar is net ver genoeg om die doodse stilte onder die sterrekoepel te gee. Wat 'n pragtige paartjie! Dankie julle!

If you're looking for the quiet surroundings of the vast Karoo, coupled with breathtaking sunsets, along with the comfort of a clean, comfortable and affordable stay, Akkedisbult Cottage is the place for you. We were there at the end of August 2014 and had the most pleasant getaway experience in a long time. Gerald and Nici are genuinely warm, friendly and lovely hosts. We will most certainly visit them again. Thanks for an amazing experience. Schalk & Zylia.

Wide open spaces, absolute silence, and kind hosts!

The area is fantastic - if you're looking for quiet, spaciousness with amazing night skies (beautiful view of the Milky Way). The hosts, Nici and Gerald, are kind. I travelled on my own and Nici called me to make sure I was ok and not lost - very sweet. We had a lovely conversation one evening and they kindly offered to take me out to see the springbok. Even sent me away with homemade rusks! An excellent place to get away from our hectic lives and breath in the silence. The house is also very pleasant - basic but more than sufficient and very clean.

Heerlik gebly, vleis gebraai en baie lekker geslaap.

Die ideale oorslaapplek vir mense wat met honde reis. Die erf is omhein: jou diere is veilig. Die huisie is silwerskoon en al die benodigdhede is beskibaar (selfs moerkoffie). Die prys vir 'n nag se slaap is baie laag. Die eienaars is vriendelik en beskikbaar. Beste waarde vir geld. Sekere mense mag dalk die 12 km plaaspad hinderlik vind, maar as jy in 'n MPV of bakkie reis, sal jy geen probleme hê nie. Ons sal verseker weer by Akkedisbult oorslaap.
