Paradise in the Midlands.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit at Beacon Vlei. It's a very nice location and you can't ask for more. It is a great base to explore the area. Alex the owner doesn't hesitate to make you feel at home. The Otter cottage was more than adequate, and was clean. If you like fishing, this is the place for you.

Paradys in die Middellande.

Ons het ons kuier by Beacon Vlei terdeë geniet. Dit is 'n baie mooi ligging en jy kan nie vir meer vra nie. Dit is 'n goeie basis om die omgewing te verken. Alex die eienaar skroom nie om jou te laat tuis voel nie. Die Otter kothuis was meer as voldoende, asook silwerskoon. As jy van baarshengel hou, is hierdie die plek vir jou.

Incredibly good and blissful.

The Rose unit was perfect for my wife and baby (although we would have liked a bath, but it's nothing against Beacon Vlei, it's me who chose the unit). The unit was very tidy and the ground staff and Alex were very friendly. The dirt road is a bit deserted, but it's beyond Beacon Vlei's control. The only downside is that I should have killed a spider - otherwise I will definitely come back.

Ongelooflik lekker en salig.

Die Rose eenheid was perfek vir my vrou en baba gewees (alhoewel ons graag 'n bad sou wou gehad het, maar dis niks teen Beacon Vlei nie, dis ek wat die eenheid gekies het). Die eenheid was baie netjies gewees en die grondpersoneel en Alex was baie vriendelik gewees. Die grondpad is bietjie woes, maar dis buite die beheer van Beacon Vlei. Die enigste nadeel is dat ek moes 'n spinnekop doodgemaak het - anders as dit sal ek beslis weer terugkom.

Staying at Beacon Vlei was the perfect transition from our week-long beach holiday in Umhlanga to a busy work schedule back in Joburg.

Beacon Vlei was quiet, serene, beautifully appointed, awfully comfortable perfected by immaculate service and fantastic value for money. I would go back in a heartbeat and recommend it to all my friends who need respite from busy schedules or seclusion to complete a demanding writing exercise, or even just a meditative weekend. What a great place!

Enjoyable stay.

We are two pensioners. Having arrived at Beacon Vlei Guest Farm, we were immediately met by Alex, who informed us that we had been upgraded from Rose cottage to Crane cottage with lovely views at no extra cost. Next morning Alex came to check on us to see if everything was okay. Obviously all was okay. The wife and I had a lovely time there bass fishing using their boat, almost capsizing it twice in 3 days. Thank you for our welcomed stay, Alex. Hope to see you again sometime.

Beautiful place, very peaceful, staff is friendly, it's safe, prettier than the pictures, beautiful view, all facilities.

This place is definitely the right place to go if you want a beautiful view, peaceful atmosphere, to travel the beautiful meander around you and all the facilities and luxury. Beacon Vlei Guest Farm has fireplaces, electric blankets and warm blankets on the beds. The staff is friendly and helpful. The view is breathtakingly beautiful and Beacon Vlei is close to Ugly Duckling, Piggly Wiggly, the Steam Punk Coffee Shop, Swiss Cheese Farm and Belgian chocolate shops. Really worth the effort and every penny. A wonderful place for all ages and sizes of families.

Pragtige plek, baie rustig, personeel is vriendelik, dis veilig, mooier as die internet foto's, pragtige uitsig, alle geriewe.

Hierdie is definitief die plek om na te gaan as jy 'n wonderlike uitsig wil hê, 'n rustige atmosfeer, die pragtige meander om jou wil toer en al die geriewe van luuksheid wil hê. Beacon Vlei Guest Farm het kaggels, elektriese komberse en warm komberse op beddens. Die staff is vriendelik en behulpsaam. Die uitsig is asemrowend mooi en Beacon vlei is naby die ugly Duckling, Piggly Wiggly, die Steam Punk Coffee Shop, Swiss Cheese Farm en Belgian sjokolade winkels. Regtig elke sent die moeite werd. 'n Wonderlike plek vir alle ouderdomme en groottes van families.

We loved it!

Beacon Vlei Guest Farm is a magnificent get-away spot. Beautiful views, lovely cottages, quiet and dog friendly too. We will definitely make it our place of choice in the midlands in future. The owner is professional and friendly. Fantastic few days!

Lieflike uitsig vanuit die huis, maak mens lus om nog 'n week te bly.

Ons het die aanwysings (net een bordjie tussen die bome/blare) moeilik gevind. Die Boathouse was op spesiale aanbod, maar ek sou eerder die huis as R600/nag eenheid beskou as 'n R900/nag (special) a.g.v. ouerige afwerking en 'n paar klein dingetjies wat gepla het. 'n Deurmatjie voor die huisie sou ons modderspore buite hou, 'n klein afdakkie voor die huisie sal die reën so bietjie afhou sodat mens nie natreën voor die deur nie, hout by jetmaster sou nice wees (daar was 2 stompe, ek het eie gekoop) Hy sê dat hy in die Winter wel hout voorsien. ook geen fynhout of fire starters nie. Dit was moeilik om die ligte skakelaars vir sommige ligte te kry. Die ander huise op die perseel is duidelik in baie beter klas (dus ook duurder), maar as ek al die plekke waar ons al tuisgegaan het in die land met die plek/prys vergelyk, sou ek R600/nag vra, veral as dit net vir twee mense is. Dalk ander saak as dit huis vol of met kinders ook is. Andersins, baie vriendelike en gawe man en personeel. Ek sou weer daarnatoe gaan. Het te sleg gevoel om vir Alex al die klein goedjies uit te wys, wil nie kleinsielig voorkom nie, maar sou wou sien dat hy met 'n klein bietjie moeite, die waarde vir geld ratio bietjie kan opskuif. Vir sy eie beswil.

Alles wat 'n mens kan verwag in die Midlands op een plek!

Beacon Vlei se eenhede is ruim en goed toegerus met heerlike elektriese komberse en verwarmers so winter en somer is dit 'n ideale bestemming. Die dam op die plaas verskaf ook vele geleenthede vir asemrowende foto's of roei as die spiere moet roer. Beacon Vlei is ideaal geleë vir verkenning van die Midlands in enige rigting. Ek sal graag terugkeer Beacon Vlei toe en sal vir seker langer as net twee nagte daar wil bly.

Lekker op die plaas.

Gerieflike tweeslaapkamereenheid. Lekker plaasgevoel. Lekker gebraai. Dam is 'n mooi "feature".
