Ongelooflike location and baie nice huisies!

Al klagte is die feit dat die gas geysers nie goed werk nie, so stort is ’n uitdaging.

Buitenstekloof Mountain Cottages's response

Dankie vir die positiewe terugvoer - ons waardeer dit!
Die gas geysers vra geduld en geleidelik water oopmaak, maar werk goed. Jammer om te hoor dat julle daarmee gesukkel het.
Gelukkig is daar ook die hot tub waar jy heerlik kan onspan in die berge...
Ons sien uit daarna om julle terug te verwelkom!

Wonderful retreat into nature

We decided to get away from the city for a few days, and chose the cottage because it has no WiFi signal. Much to our surprise, even our teenage daughters loved the holiday - enjoy walking, riding their bikes, paddling on the dam and just relaxing - and even asked to stay a few extra nights. The cottage is rustic but charming, and the setting is exquisite.

Buitenstekloof Mountain Cottages's response

Thank you for your lovely review. We are so glad that your whole family enjoyed your weekend away - it surely is a place to connect again with nature and with each other!
We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future!

Wat 'n fantastiese ligging vir rus en vrede.

Die huisie is pragtig en net wat 'n mens nodig het. Die uitsig van oral is asemrowend. Ons het heerlik gaan stap en fiets gaan ry. Die enigste wat ons nog sou wou doen, was swem/roei, maar die swemgat/dam is nie heeltemal geskik daarvoor nie.

Buitenstekloof Mountain Cottages's response

Hi Margaux

Thank your for your positive review - we are glad you enjoyed your stay.

For swimming and relaxing, we installed private hot tubs at each cottage - should you prefer, they can also be used as normal plunge pools for swimming and cooling down. We also provided a small boat at the dam for relaxing on the water.

We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

Ons het lekker gekuier en berge was mooi.

Daar kort bordjies om aan te dui waar om af te draai, want amper die voertuig beskadig om deur doringtakke te moes ry. Julle het pragtige prente van water en mense roei en dis geriewe waarvoor ons betaal het, toe is daar niks water nie. Dis oneties en vals bemarking, julle moet 'n aanduiding sit om te sê daar is nie water in die dam nie.

Rustig.

Daar is 'n paar dinge wat ek net onder bestuur se aandag bring. 1. Die brandblusser is 6 jaar laas gediens en is op verkeerde plek geplaas. Agter voordeur aan bracket sou meer bekombaar wees. 2. Die oppervlakte van sement is taai en goed sit vas. Veral waar stofie staan. 3. 'n Vlieplak sal handig wees. Ek glo nie iemand pak vlieëdoder in nie. 4. Gordyn by stort se venster is 'n moet asb. Verder is dit baie lekker om daar te kuier.

Beautiful scenery. Not suited for weekend accommodation.

Yes, I can recommend it for the scenery, but I wouldn't recommend it for a whole weekend. Battery power is not sufficient. Winter months are very cold to shower. Shower is too big and open with gas geyser that is still struggling to keep up. Don't think it was worth the price. Kitchen door in kitchen fell off. Old curtains. Not much effort and time or money was spent on the place. Luckily we just slept there and were out all day, otherwise I didn't know how the solar panels and gas would keep up.

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

Baie mooi natuurskoon. Nie geskik vir naweekverblyf nie.

Ja, ek kan dit aanbeveel vir die natuurskoon, maar ek sal dit nie aanbeveel vir 'n hele naweek nie. Batterykrag is nie voldoende nie. Wintermaande is baie koud om te stort. Stort is hopeloos te groot en oop met gasgeyser wat ook nog sukkel om by te bly. Dink nie dit was die prys werd nie. Kasdeur in kombuis het af geval. Ou gordyne. Nie baie moeite en tyd of geld is aan die plekkie spandeer nie. Gelukkig het ons net daar geslaap en was heeldag uit, anders weet ek darem nie hoe die sonpanele en gas dit sou hou nie.

Lovely old farm house with tons of character.

We had a wonderful time at Pomegranate Cottage. My only criticism would be to provide a few battery lights that have already been charged. The power goes off pretty early and if we didn't bring our own lights, we would be immersed in darkness. The shower heads should also be looked at and beds are fairly old, but one expects that of that old farmhouse. Apart from the above, people are very friendly, the house is clean and tidy and is the ideal getaway from city life with no cellphone signal, electricity, etc.

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

Lieflike ou plaas huis met tonne karakter.

Ons het 'n wonderlike rustige tyd gehad by Pomegranate Cottage. My enigste kritiek sal wees om dalk 'n paar batteryliggies te verskaf wat reeds gelaai is. Die krag gaan redelik vroeg af en as ons nie ons eie ligte saamgeneem het nie, sou ons in donkerte gedompel wees. Die stort koppe kan dalk ook na gekyk word en beddens is taamlik oud, maar mens verwag dit half van so ou plaashuis. Buiten bogenoemde is die mense baie vriendelike, die huis is skoon en netjies en dit is die ideale wegbreek van die stadslewe met geen selfoonsein, elektrisiteit, ens.

Waar jy jou liggaam, siel en kop kan skoon kry en stresvry.

'n Wegbreekplek in die mooiste natuurskoon. Die mooiste naggeluide en varste lug wat jy kan inasem. Natuur is asemrowend. Die cottages is te dierbaar en dit het my laat terugdink aan ons tye as kinders op my ouma-hul se plaas. Iets wat elke persoon moet kom beleef. Sielsrus en ontspanning.

Dit was ietwat teleurstellend.

Die kombuistoonbank was vol stof. Die braai het geen braai-grid gehad nie. Die stoep was onnet ons moes self die stoele na die stoep dra en skoonmaak. Die gas geyser vir die badkamer by slaapkamer het net koue water uitgelaat.

For those who like a quiet and secluded spot, this is perfect. The gas fridge needs work. It does not keep items sufficiently cold. Alright for a day or two but not longer than that.

Lovely place and very quiet, but the accommodation is unfortunately neglected.

The cottage has clearly been set up splendidly and generously some years ago. It has a lovely porch, good layout with a generously sized bed and bathroom. Unfortunately it currently shows clear signs of neglect with little attention to maintenance or care and gives the distinct impression that owners/management have lost interest in the business. Herewith a list of some of the issues: fish moths in pots and pans, kitchen floor was grimy, no plugs in kitchen zinc so one could not wash dishes properly, kitchen plumbing was shoddy, incomplete cutlery, gas heating of water kicked out after 2 minutes, dirty cloths seem to have been used to clean surfaces and left dirt marks on e.g. cupboard doors, solar electricity lights and chords have been badly installed, mattresses have lost their form and we turned them over to get a firmed feel, magazines were old (2011). The most annoying issue, however, was the electricity inverter which had a buzzing ventilator that disturbed the splendid silence twice per minute.

Skitterend en sielsverkwikkend!

Wat 'n heerlike wegbreek in die berge! Hier kan jy werklik ontspan en terugkeer na die meer basiese dinge in die lewe. Die verblyf is eenvoudig, tog netjies, alhoewel die huisies binne kan doen met 'n lagie verf. Alhoewel mens nou nie dit juis raaksien wanneer jou gedagtes vasgevang raak deur die berge wat jou omring nie! Die wynproe, wat ingesluit is by die verblyf, is heerlik.

Pragtige uitsigte. Heerlike gasverwarmer. Die beste kaggel/binnebraai.

Pragtige uitsigte. Gemaklike tuiste vir 2 mense. Heerlike gasverwarmer, was 'n redding in die koue. Pragtige bedlinne. Die huisie was mooi skoon. Die beste was die wonderlike kaggel/binnebraai wat goed trek. Daar was die volgende oggend geen reuk of teken dat daar die vorige aand gebraai was nie. Baie goeie gasyskas, tweeplaatgasstofie. Warmwater- en kouewatertoevoer baie goed. Toilet werk goed. Stort baie goed. Iets om te oorweeg is 'n klein tafel en 2 stoele in plaas van die halwe vaatjie. Die volgende het aandag nodig: die bed moet binnekort vervang word, daar is 'n los spons bo-op die matras, die sitkamer is uiters ongemaklik, maak jou rug seer. Moes op kampstoele sit, gelukkig het ons ons kampstoele by ons gehad. Ons stel byvoorbeeld voor om die lae bankie en 2 hangmat-stoele uit te haal en eerder 2 gemaklikes in te sit. 'n Mens moet op jou skoot eet. So dit kan 2 gemaklike regop stoele wees. Was stoep se plastiese stoele en staaltafeltjie. Vir behoud mag die eienaar dalk wil oorweeg om die waterpype by die kombuis en stort vas te maak teen die muur. Dit is pragtige waterpype. Oor die algemeen 'n pragtige plek, sal graag weer wil besoek.

Buitenstekloof Mountain Cottages's response

Heinrich, ons is bly julle het die naweek geniet en lekker gerus.
Baie dankie vir jou positiewe terugvoer en ook aanbevelings - ons neem dit ter harte en sal beslis daaraan aandag gee. Net ter inligting, die eksta spons op die bed is 'n eierdopmatras wat meer gerief en sagtheid verskaf vir die persone wat 'n sagter matras verkies, en in die winter ook meer hitte verskaf.
Ons sien uit daarna om julle binnekort weer terug te verwelkom om die opgraderings te kom geniet!

Baie lekker goedkoop wegbreeknaweek vir iemand wat 'n lekker breuk soek!

'n Heerlike verblyf en wegbreeknaweek! Dit was heerlik om sonder krag en net die basiese behoegtes te kon bly! Die solar krag was groot hulp, maar ook die gastoevoer was baie lekker! Dit was heerlik om weg te kom van selfone en weer in aanraking te kon wees met die natuur! Ons kyk uit vir die volgende wegbreek!

The location was beautiful, but the accommodation was disappointing.

Unfortunately there were a few jackals that spoiled the weekend. The roof leaks in various places in the cottage. On the first night only the bedroom and bathroom had working lights. The curtains in the room fell of many times. The bedroom does not have a door, which makes the room cold and if there is more people it leaves a privacy issue. The bathroom has two uncovered windows, which makes it uncomfortable. On a positive note, the location is exceptional, especially if one wants to climb the mountain tops in the moonlight.

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

Ligging pragtig, maar verblyf self was teleurstellend.

Daar was ongelukkig verskeie klein jakkalsies wat die naweek bederf het. Die dak lek op verskeie plekke in die kothuis. Daar was slegs op die eerste aand ligte in die slaap- en badkamer. Die gordyne in die slaapkamer het telkemale afgeval. Die slaapkamer het nie 'n deur nie en dit maak die kamer nogal koud en indien daar nog mense sou wees, kan privaatheid problematies raak. Die badkamer se twee onbedekte vensters is ook nogal ongemaklik. Op 'n positiewer noot was die ligging iets besonders veral as mens saans die maan oor die bergtoppe sien uitklim.

Die huise is nie soos op die advertensie nie, skep verwarring. Miskien is die prentjie van ander huise.

Ek het reeds 'n verslag na Buitenkloof gestuur. Hier was ook geen ys beskikbaar nie want die gasyskas was nie lank genoeg voor ons aankoms aangeskakel nie. Die vrieskas het wel gewerk. Badkamer en stort het nie skoon gelyk/gevoel nie. Geen gordyn nie. Ek kon nie stort nie want miskien het ek nie die gas gebruik verstaan nie, maar elke keer as ek die koue kraan oopdraai om die water te reguleer dan gaan die gas dood. Baie gesukkel en toe gelos. Die dak het gelek en water op my vrou se voete, papnat gewees, moes toe ander plan maak.

Baie rustig, die netheid is egter nie goed nie en plek is nie skoon nie.

Definitief aandag gee aan renovasie, asook netheid, veral die stort en die algehele toestand van netheid is swak. Glad nie aan te beveel vir enige persoon nie.

Een van die beste vakansies ooit.

Dit was ongelooflik! Die natuurskoon en ligging van die verblyf maak dit definitief die moeite werd!

Ongemaklik.

Ongemaklik weens die volgende redes: Spinnerakke in die cottage wat indruk gee dit is nie skoon nie. Die warm stortwater kan nie beheer word nie, waterkrane is onprakties. Algemene instandhouding nie op datum, waterpype los, al die ligte werk nie.

Verblyf was nie wat ons verwag het nie.

Die omgewing is prentjiemooi. Ons het in die Baboons Gift Cottage tuisgegaan omdat ons 'n gesin van 5 is. Ons was ontnugter deur 1 slaapkamer met 'n dubbelbed en 'n enkelbed en slaapbank in 'n baie klein leefarea/kombuis. Ons moes self die enkelbed opmaak. Die slaapbank se 2 matrasse het nie gepas nie, gevolglik moes ons dogtertjie op die matras op die vloer slaap. Daar was slegs 1 duvet en 2 komberse vir ons 3 kinders beskikbaar. Die tweede aand het die gaste langsaan vir ons komberse geleen. Slegs 4 stoele by toonbank waar ons moes eet en a.g.v. die vrieskas was daar net sitplek vir 3. My seuns moes op die matras sit en eet. Dis 'n pragtige klein cottage in 'n baie mooi omgewing, maar heeltemal te klein vir 5 mense, soos geadverteer. Dis ideaal vir slegs 2 persone soos die cottage langsaan (wat presies dieselfde grootte is). Met matras op vloer, slaapbank wat ons moes skuif dat alles inpas, was daar weinig beweegspasie. En omdat dit baie koud was, was dit moeilik. Gelukkig was ons baie min daar a.g.v. sportverpligtinge.

Dit was regtig 'n wonderlike ervaring.

Ons het dit baie geniet. Dit was stil, ver weg van alles, pragtig geleë tussen die berge. Ek sal definitief weer daarna toe gaan.

The tranquillity of nature was heavenly!

Accommodation was quite neat. Fortunately we made provision for the necessary things! I just wanted my view that was advertised. A little worried about safety as cottages are so far inside and no signal and there are no control gates. Mountain pool not really for swimming, looked a bit dirty. Otherwise our home was very nice and quiet. The service we received was very good!

Die rustigheid van die natuur was hemels!

Plekkie was heel netjies. Gelukkig het ons voorsiening gemaak van die nodige! Ek het net my "view" gesoek soos adverteer. Bietjie bekommerd oor die veiligheid aangesien cottages so ver binne is en geen signal en daar nie rêrig n control gate is nie. Mountain pool nie rêrig vir swem nie maar bietjie vuil gelyk. Anders was ons tuiste baie lekker en rustig. Die diens wat ons ontvang het was baie goed!

Disappointed

We were quite disappointed with our accommodation at Rooipensie. The accommodation was booked for 4, but 2 people shared the queen-size bed while the 2 other guests had to share a sleeper couch in the lounge. There was bedding for the couch. We only got 1 roll of toilet paper for 4 people for 2 nights! There's solar power, but the light went off after 20 minutes after sunset and only 2 candles were provided (which were burned down by the end of the first evening). The geyser just heated some of the time and sometime not at all. There was no hot water the later morning! We had to pour river water in the toilet bowl to flush it and brush our teeth with bottled water. Extremely disappointing experience.

Teleurgesteld.

Ons was redelik teleurgesteld in ons verblyf by Rooipensie. Die akkommodasie was geboek vir 4 mense, maar 2 mense het 'n koninggroote bed gehad met en suite badkamer, terwyl die ander 2 op 'n 'sleepercouch' in die sitkamer moes slaap. Daar was geen beddegoed verskaf vir die bank. Ons het net een rolletjie toilet papier ontvang vir 4 mense vir 2 nagte! Daar was solar power, maar die ligte het saans net 20 minute gehou na die son gesak het, en daar was net 2 kerse verskaf (wat na die eerste aand al op gebruik was). Die geyser het partymaal warm gemaak, en partymaal nie en die laaste oggend was daar geen water! Ons moes rivier water in die toilet bak gooi om die toilet te trek en ons tande met gebottelde water borsel. Uiters teleurstellende ondervinding.

Not again. Lights don't work, one cottage no hot water or fridge.

Even though I knew there is no electricity, lights and hot water are promised. The lights worked for exactly 20 minutes and then not anymore, even if you plug the red wire in during the day to charge. No extra candles are even provided. One can not even call because there is no cellphone signal and if your cellphone is dead you can't charge it. The people who were there with us only stayed 2 out of the 3 nights en then decided to drive back to Pretoria. Kitchenware and furniture are in a poor condition. Not even a plug for the basin in the bathroom.

Nie weer nie. Ligte werk nie, een cottage geen warm water of yskas nie.

Alhoewel ek weet dat daar nie elektrisiteit is nie, word ligte en warm water deur gas belowe. Die ligte het presies 20 minute gebrand en dan werk dit nie meer nie, ongeag of jy die "rooi" draadjie deur die dag inprop om te laai. Geen ekstra kerse word eers verskaf nie. 'n Persoon kan ook nie bel nie, want daar is geen selfoonopvangs nie en as jou foon pap is, kan jy dit ook nie daar laai nie. Mense wat saam ons daar was het net twee aande uit die drie gebly en toe maar besluit hulle ry terug Pretoria toe. Kombuisware en meubels is oor die algemeen in swak toestand. Nie eers wasbakprop in badkamer nie.

Die plek is vuil en was geensins gediens nie.

Hulle verwar rustic met vuil en swak vakmanskap, bedrading hang orals teen mure af. Dis geensins julle naam waardig nie.

Peaceful and beautiful.

Convenient cottage and you need nothing more. The driveway was difficult driving so I rather parked my car at the bottom of the driveway. No salt and pepper, although it was mentioned in the folder. New linen would be nice. We had a relaxing time.

Baie rustig en mooi.

Die kothuis is gerieflik en mens het niks meer nodig nie. Die inry van Witkruis is moeilik om met 'n kar te ry en ek het eerder onder die oprit parkeer. Daar is nie sout en peper nie, al word dit in die leêr genoem. Die kothuis kan doen met nuwe beddegoed. Ons het baie lekker ontspan.

Waarde vir geld in 'n ongekunstelde natuurlike omgewing.

Vanaf ons bespreking tot ons vertrek het ons 'n uitstekende tydjie gehad, selfs met die gemiddelde temperatuur wat 37° was. Ons het darem oorleef met koeldrank, ys en waatlemoen. Ons het in Witkruis gebly, wat goed genoeg vir ons was, die stort en gastoestelle werk goed en 'n bonus, wat die ander kothuise nie het nie, is die asemrowende alom-uitsig oor die bergreekse. Die toegangspad, 'n enkelpad, is in 'n goeie toestand met aftrekplekke om ander voertuie verby te laat gaan. Aangesien dit die feesseisoen was, was inkopies in Robertson nogal 'n ervaring (lees nagmerrie). Die hike na die waterval is 'n moet en 40% van die roete is onder skadubome deur. Daar is nie selfoonsein nie, so jy kan nie heeldag vasgegom aan jou skerm sit nie, en net die natuur en stilte eerder geniet. Ons gaan binnekort teruggaan en sal vriende en familie na die Homestead neem. Dankie aan Johan en Marie vir die pragtige wegbreek-venue wat hulle voorsien en in stand hou.

Value for money in a rustic nature environment.

From booking to departing we had a super time, even with the average temperature being 37 degrees, which we mitigated through cold drinks, ice and watermelon. We stayed in Witkruis which was good enough for us, the shower and gas appliances working well and a bonus, which the other cottages do not offer, a stunning all round view of the mountain ranges. The access road, a single lane, is in good condition with laybys to let other vehicles pass. Being the festive period shopping in Robertson was an experience (read nightmare). The hike to the waterfall is a must and 40% of the trail is under shady trees. There is no mobile phone connection to lead you into temptation of sitting on your device all day, instead of enjoying nature and quiet. We are going back soon and will take family and friends to the Homestead. Thank you to Johan and Marie for providing and maintaining such an escape venue.

Peaceful.

Everything was lovely in the bush and nice and peaceful, but the Baboon Cottage is definitely not equipped for 4 adults as advertised! There was little water when we were there, so we weren't able to swim.

Rustig

Alles heerlik in die bos en lekker rustig, maar die Baboon Cottage is verseker nie ingerig vir 4 grootmense soos dit adverteer is nie! Daar was baie min water toe ons daar was, so geen swemgeriewe.

Peace for the soul

If you miss the peace and quiet of the old farm house then this place is made for you, if you just want to chill on the patio the entire day. The kitchen area can do with a good spring cleaning. The mountain pool is overgrown and the dam has been taken over by the waterblommetjies. The walking trails aren't indicated clearly at the start and is also overgrown.

Rustigheid vir die siel

As jy verlang na die ou plaas se rustigheid is hierdie jou plek, dit is te sê as jy heeldag op jou stoep wil sit. Kan aandag gegee word aan die skoonmaak van die kombuis area. Die mountain pool is toegegroei en die waterblommetjies het behoorlik die dam oor geneem. Die wandelroetes nie duidelik gemerk waar dit begin nie en is ook baie toegegroei.

The peace and quiet and privacy is indescribable.

The tranquility of nature between the mountains is wonderful, but the cottages and the surroundings haven't had any attention in a while. The fridge was out of order, the hot water only works now and then and the sink's tap leaked continuously. The rock pool looks like something out of a horror film and the dam is completely taken over by pondweed and the cano is leaking. You will only be able to take on the walking trail if you have a panga and an axe. The photos in the advertisement is very misleading, because it is not what it looks like now at all. With a little work and attention, the Buitenstekloof Cottages will be a fantastic destination and I will definitely want to go back for a visit.

Die rustigheid en privaatheid was onbeskryflik lekker!

Die rustigheid in die natuur tussen die berge was wonderlik maar die kothuise en omgewing het duidelik lanklaas aandag geniet. Die yskas was buite werking, die warmwater verhitting werk net nou en dan, en die wasbak se kraan het aanhoudend gelek. Die "rock pool" lyk soos iets uit 'n gruwel film, die dam is toegegroei met waterblommetjies en die kano lek. Die voetslaan pad sal jy net kan aandurf met 'n panga en 'n byl. Die foto's wat as advertensie gebruik word is baie misleidend want dis glad nie hoe dit nou daar lyk nie. Met net 'n bietjie werk en aandag kan Buitenste Kloof kothuise 'n fantastiese bestemming wees en ek sal self ook weer daar gaan kuier.
