Baie rustige, afgesonderde vakansieverblyf, pragtige natuurskoon, baie behulpsame gasheer.

Ek sal weer hier bespreek op my volgende reis deur die Oos-Kaap. Die middelmannetjie van die hoofpad na Amanzi Empilo was hoog vir my plat kar, maar deur versigtig te ry kan jy daar uitkom.

Loved it! Beautiful spot.

This little rondavel was heaven. No internet, solar power and a view to die for! And one can keep fit in many different ways.

Baie rustig en mooi.

Die bungalow is gerieflik, skoon en net lekker. Die paadjie na die bungalow is geskik vir hoë voertuig, 'n gewone motor gaan sukkel, ook is die trappies van die kar parkering na die bungalow vir fikse mense want dit is steil. Verder het ons ons verblyf geniet en sal ons dit aanbeveel. Omgewing is mooi en rustig.

Ontsnap van die werklikheid.

Hierdie was 'n absolute ongelooflike ervaring. Perfekte ligging, met 'n onbeskryflike uitsig. Alhoewel die eenheid nie krag het nie, was alles perfek ingerig - ongeag die koue. Sonkrag ligte, gasverwarmers, dik komberse, donkie vir vuurwarm water. Dit was die perfekte gesinsontsnapping. Bordspeletjies by kerslig. Ons sal enige tyd weer gaan!

Lovely off-the-grid stay.

We had a really great stay at the bungalow which has everything you need..The 'donkie' showers were amaze and the peacefulness of just sitting and relaxing was heaven..Just remember Rhodes has no diesel.

Pragtig en stil.

Regtig 'n baie lekker stil plek, niks en niemand naby jou nie, net die prag van die natuurskoon om jou! Baie lekker plekkie om te bly.

Breathtakingly wonderful.

Words will not be able to describe this experience. It was absolutely wonderful in such an unspoiled part of our country. We will definitely visit again and again.

Asemrowend wonderlik.

Woorde sal nie sommer hierdie ervaring kan beskryf nie. Dit was absoluut wonderlik in so ongerepte deel van ons land. Ons sal beslis weer en weer gaan.

Most enjoyable stay, we will go again.

Rustic rondavel, very comfortable, a bit short of kitchen equipment, but good cooker and gas heater. Wonderful situation. Lighting equipment gave a few problems.

Peaceful and quiet (except for the stream) with views across the stream and mountain. Away from it all.

Very neat and quiet for those who want to escape the city. The bungalow with its views of the river and mountain give such a sense of peace and privacy that is not easy to find. The facilities are perfect for one's needs - solar lights, gas and a donkey for hot water. If I could upgrade something it would be the shower head. Sitting on the patio overlooking the mountain, river and sheep is something you don't get to experience every day.

Rustig en stil (behalwe vir die riviertjie) met uitsigte oor die stroom en die berge, weg van alles.

Baie netjies en rustig as mens lus is vir wegkom van die stad. Die bungalow wat uitkyk oor die rivier en die berge bied 'n rustigheid en privaatheid wat mens nie op baie plekke kan kry nie. Die geriewe is perfek vir wat mens nodig het, ligte (solar), gas en 'n donkie vir warm stort. As ek iets sou upgrade sou dit die stortkop wees. Om op die stoep te sit en uit te kyk oor die natuur (berge, rivier, en skape) is iets wat mens nie elke dag ervaar nie.

Awesome.

Amanzi Empilo Bungalow was fantastic! The owners were incredibly friendly and helpful. Break away from everything: TV, phone and people were wonderful. Just the charging of my camera's battery was a challenge without power. Recommend the place and the people of Grace Hill farms with love.

Amanzi Empilo Bungalow was fantasties! Die eienaars was ongelooflik vriendelik en behulpsaam. Die wegbreek van alles: TV, telefoon en mense was wonderlik. Net my kamera se batterylaai was 'n challenge sonder krag. Beveel die plek en sy mense van Grace Hill farms met liefde aan.

Dit was ongelooflik om so een met die natuur te wees.

Dit is 'n pragtige plek en die omgewing is baie mooi. Ons het Naude's Nek-pas baie geniet. Gasvrou was baie vriendelikheid en het die heerlike koeksisters wat sy in die winkel verkoop. Die "bungalow" is pragtig en goed toegerus. Met die dat daar geen krag is nie, kan mens die stilte en natuur baie meer geniet.

Pragtige omgewing waar jy deel word van die natuurskoon, en die eenvoud van die rondawel wat jou na jou Ouma laat verlang.

Dis die ideale wegbreek vir 'n gesin wat bereid is om 'n oopplan-rondawel met 'n dubbelbed en stapelbed met mekaar te deel. Dis 'n uitdaging om die sonkrag-lampies en die donkie vir warm water baas te raak, maar dit wérk! Op die ou end 'n heerlike ervaring wat saambind. Die plaaswinkel het alles wat jy nodig het van braaivleis tot koeksisters. Die omgewing is sprokiesmooi, met die duidelikste sterre en die enigste gedruis die kabbel van die Bellrivierstroompie is.

Simply the best.

Just what a tired person needed. Beautiful view of the Bell River with the roaring stream in the background. The owner was very helpful and we would definitely like to visit again.

Absoluut uit die boeke uit.

Net wat 'n moeë persoon nodig gehad het. Pragtige uitsig oor die Bellrivier met die kabbelende waters wat in die agtergrond ruis. Die eienaar was baie behulpsaam en beslis sal ons dit graag weer wil besoek.

Fantastic location but power supply and warm water led to some inconvenience.

A very well located facility that is clean and tidy. Unfortunately, the carport spoils the view and poor lighting spoils the overall stay. The fact that there is only a freezer facility is also problematic.

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

Fantastiese ligging maar kragvoorsiening en warm water lei tot 'n mate van ongerief.

'n Baie goed geleë fasiliteit wat skoon en netjies is. Jammer dat die parkeerafdak die uitsig bederf en dat swak beligting die algemene verblyf bederf. Die feit dat daar slegs 'n vrieskasfasiliteit is, is ook problematies.

Vergeet van die stad en ontspan in die vrede van die platteland.

Die rit hierheen berei jou voor op die afgesonderdheid, vrede en skoonheid van hierdie wêreld. Die ligging van hierdie hut maak jou deel van die natuur onmiddelik. Hier is nie fieterjasies nie maar jy mis niks. Alles wat jy nodig het is voorsien. Warm water en kraakskoon beddegoed maak dit 'n heerlike ervaring.

Peaceful, natural beauty.

What a lovely honeymoon! Peaceful, remote and beautiful! Truly self-catering, enjoyed firing up the donkey for hot water. The place is well equipped against the cold and everything works! The gas and solar power add to the romantic atmosphere. Would suggest deckchairs so that one can watch the stars and maybe even get a telescope that one might hire. The stars are really incredible!

Rustige natuurskoon.

Wat 'n heerlike honeymoon! Rustig, afgeleë en pragtig! Werklik self-catering, het dit geniet om die donkie te stook vir warm water. Die plek is goed ingerig teen die koue en alles werk! Die gas en sonkrag dra by tot 'n baie romantiese atmosfeer. Sou deckchairs voorstel om na die sterre te kan kyk en dalk 'n teleskoop beskikbaar te stel- teen ekstra verhuring natuurlik! Die sterre is werklik ongelooflik!

'n Wonderlike ervaring in die natuur met alle moontlike geriewe!

Ons was aangenaam verras deur die gasvryheid en fyn smaak van ons gasheer en -vrou! Alle geriewe was daar en modern met gas en sonkrag. Ons het die heerlike stilte en vars lug waardeer en sal weer gaan!

Stilte, pragtige natuurskoon en gerieflike verblyf.

Ons het die tyd in Rhodes baie geniet. Die verblyf by Empilo was heerlik. Ons hou van die stilte, pragtige uitsigte en die ruim binne en buite area. Die stook van die donkie en sonkrag ligte gee so plaas atmosfeer! 'n Berghut duisend.

Die regte plek vir afskakel en ontslae raak van die stadsgeraas en stres.

Wonderlike natuurskoon met gasvryheid wat 'n mens net op 'n klein middellandse dorpie kry. Ek kan dit sonder enige twyfel aanbeveel.
