Dis wonderlik om by De Rusty Farm te kuier. Ek hou van die vryheid, die rustigheid en die skoonheid.

Ons het ons tyd regtig geniet. Die parkie en die swembad was 'n groot pluspunt. My kinders wou nie eers weggaan toe ons moes vertrek nie. Dit was baie rustig en skoon. Ons het op die bankie gaan sit en koffie gedrink in die oggend terwyl ons geluister het na die werkers op die plaas en die voëls. Dit was hemels. Ek wil graag weer kom en die ander huisies probeer. Maar "Pure Plaas" was perfek vir ons vier - 2 groot mense en 2 kinders. Ons het rustige nagte gehad en selfs die voertuie wat verby gery het, was nie 'n probleem nie. Ek sal julle beslis aanbeveel. Baie dankie weereens. De Rusty Farm.

It's great to visit De Rusty Farm. I like the freedom, the tranquility and the beauty.

We really enjoyed our time. The park and the pool were a big plus. My kids didn't even want to leave when we had to leave. It was very peaceful and clean. We sat on the bench and drank coffee in the morning while listening to the workers on the farm and the birds. It was heavenly. I would like to come again and try the other cottages. But "Pure Plaas" was perfect for the four of us - 2 adults and 2 children. We had peaceful nights and even the passing vehicles were not a problem. I will definitely recommend you guys. Thank you very much again. The Rusty Farm.

Homely and comfortable rural accommodation.

The accommodation was comfortable yet modest, but very good for the price and accessibility. Will definitely stay over again when in the area.

Owners should step up to the standards others provide at the same rates.

Compared to other guest houses at the same rates, this was the poorest.

Beste akkommodasie ooit!

Ons kuier op die plaas was voortreflik. Karla, asook die res van die familie, se gasvryheid was uit die boonste rakke. Die werkers op die plaas was so vriendelik en behulpsaam. De Rusty Farm se tuisgebakte brood is 'n moet. Baie dankie, sal next time bietjie langer kuier.

We were received well and shown to our unit promptly.

The hosts were courteous, helpful and prompt. We felt safe. However, the door provided no sense of privacy because it is glass, so it was a little unsettling to move between the shower and the bedrooms. A fireplace would have been welcome as it rained on our last day, and the evening was quite chilly, so we piled on all the additional blankets.

Roadtrip from Mossel Bay via Swartberg Pass picnic in the mountain Klaarstoor and overnight in De Rust for a birthday surprise.

On arrival report to residence - garden unmaintained and also grounds where guest rooms are. Children's trampolines are also broken. The oven door was fastened with a hook and when I opened the oven door it fell on my knees. Definitely different from photos on Lekkerslaap regarding grounds - unit we stayed in was as per photos. Owner and his mother are definitely very friendly. I understand they are still new in the business and wish them all the best for the future. They could have a very nice place if they just paid a little more attention.

Heerlike plaaskuier met alle nodige fasiliteite.

Ons het heerlik gekuier 'op die plaas'! Vriendelike maar diskrete gasheer en dame - effektiewe inboekproses. Huisie toegerus met alles wat nodig is. Nespresso-masjientjie was 'n lekker bonus! Heerlike swembad en kuier/braai-area met pragtige uitsig oor Karoovlakte en heuwels. Perfekte verblyf vir gesin met kinders of vir paartjies of enkelinge wat rus en vrede soek. Dorpie, De Rust, met verskeie eetplekke glad nie ver nie, so ook lieflike Meiringspoort met lekker waterval en swemgat. Was, alles in ag genome, 'n heerlike kuier en hoogs aanbeveelbaar.
