Pristine, almost perfect.

Pristine accommodation. Very safe with easy access. Tar road all the way from Oudtshoorn. From Calitzdorp you will have to travel on about 30km of gravel, but it is very scenic and worth the drive. No Wi-Fi and bad MTN reception. No TV, hooray! There is a coal stove in the lounge/dining area, which doesn't show in the photos. The hostess is very friendly. Even offered us a free night just because the gas ran out and we had to wait about 2 hours for a refill. The location, although almost perfect, is unfortunately on the wrong side of the road. So, in your view, there is a road, some trees which block the view and several electric lines. A pity. So to see the view shown in the photos you have to stand against the fence. I would also recommend that the owners supply a wire brush for the braai grid. The kitchen pans, frying pan and 2 burner gas stove are a bit tired. Still a worthwhile 5-star visit.

Beste B&B in 'n lang tyd. Alles was goed, skoon en netjies. Pragtige omgewing.

Ons wens ons kon langer kuier. Goeie fasiliteite en uitstekende diens. 'n Stoepkuier sou lekker wees.

Best B&B in a long time. Everything was good, clean and tidy. Beautiful surroundings.

We wish we could visit longer. Good facilities and excellent service. A porch swing would be nice.

Really enjoyable time.

Big reception area, fireplace, well-heated and big Magneto lights for loadshedding. More than enough space for all.

Baie gemaklike en mooi huis op 'n plaas onder die Swartberge. Kan meer gereeld hierheen kom vir langer!

Ruim huis wat baie netjies en skoon is. Die huis is baie goed toegerus vir 'n week se kuier. Die ligging is onbeskryflik mooi met die uitsig op die Swartberge.

Very comfortable and beautiful house on a farm under the Swartberge. Can come here more often for longer!

Spacious house that is very neat and clean. The house is very well equipped for a week's visit. The location is indescribably beautiful with the view of the Swartberge.

Ons het baie lekker gebly.

Uiehuis is sentraal geleë as jy die besienswaardighede rondom Matjiesrivier wil bekyk. Die uitsig van die stoep af is pragtig en die omgewing is baie rustig. Ek sal dit weer besoek as ek kan.

Lekker gekuier in 'n huis wat soveel bied.

Die huis is skoon, ruim en goed toegerus. Die gasvrou woon net om die draai en is baie hulpvaardig. Lieflike slaapkamers en moderne badkamers. Asemrowende uitsig op die Swartberg vanaf die voorstoep. Dit is 'n huis vir lekker kuier. Die verblyf bied goeie waarde vir geld.

Have a good time in a house that offers so much.

The house is clean, spacious and well equipped. The hostess lives just around the corner and is very helpful. Lovely bedrooms and modern bathrooms. Breathtaking view of the Swartberg from the front porch. It's a house for fun. The accommodation offers good value for money.

Baie netjiese verblyf, lekker ruim en goed toegerus, ek sal dit aanbeveel vir 'n lekker rus, en uitstekend as jy die omgewing en Swartbergpas wil verken op jou bergfiets.

Beautiful bedding and crockery. So comfortable. We enjoyed the mountain view from the verandah.

Enjoyed walks in the veld. As it was cold we spent the evening around the wood stove, cooking our dinner and chatting.

Familie kuierplek.

Hierdie selfsorghuis, is lieflik Met 3 kamers kan daar baie gemaklik 8 mense saam kuier, 4 deel 1 gesinskamer Die stoep vra vir lekker lang kuier om die lang tafel en met 'n uitsig op die Swartberge so naby, wil jy niks anders doen nie. Lugverkoeling in elke kamer, sorg dat die somerhitte wyk. Hierdie plek is ideal vir vriende en familie om saam te kuier, selfs die winter kan maar kom, die binne braai/kaggel sal die koue laat verdwyn. Alles wat jy kan benodig is voorsien.

Family hangout.

This self-catering house is lovely. With 3 rooms, 8 people can hang out very comfortably together, 4 share 1 family room. The stoep calls for nice long walks around the long table and with a view of the Swartberge so close, you don't want to do anything else. Air-conditioning in every room keeps the summer heat away. This place is ideal for friends and family to visit together, even winter can come, the indoor braai/fireplace will make the cold disappear. Everything you could need is provided.

Altogether wonderful.

De Uiehuis was such a beautiful place to switch off and relax. The view of the Swartberg mountains in front of us, surrounded by farms, what a perfect location. The house itself was big and spacious, can sleep 8 adults very comfortably. The aircon was a bonus from the warm evenings and the house was more than well equipped. We really enjoyed our stay.

Words can not describe the beauty of the scenery. The owners made us feel at home the moment we stopped there. The house is set up beautifully! I felt right at home. Being back home after the visit is just so depressing. Am contemplating packing up and moving! Thank you for an awesome stay!

Die Uiehuis het werklik aan al ons verwagtinge voldoen.

Ek was uiters beïndruk met die besondere netheid van die verblyf. Ons was op 'n fietstoer in die Suid-Kaap en die ligging van die Uiehuis was vir ons uitstekend omdat ons die oggend na ons verblyf oor die Swartbergpas sou ry. Ek kan aan min plekke (indien enige) dink wat vir ons groep beter sou wees.

The Onion House really met all our expectations.

I was extremely impressed with the particular cleanliness of the accommodation. We were on a cycling tour in the Southern Cape and the location of the Onion House was excellent for us because we would be riding over the Swartberg Pass in the morning after our stay. I can think of few places (if any) that would be better for our group.

Heerlike plaas kuier in 'n pragtig versorgde ou plaashuis.

Ons hou plekke rustigheid bied ver van die stad se gewoel. De Uiehuis is aan die voet van Swartberg pas op 'n pragtige plaas. Ons het one eie stukkie plaas gehad. Baie mooi kunstig en gerieflik ingerig en presies wat ons nodig gehad het. 'n Lekker houtstoof het ons warm gehou in die skielike koue wat ons getref het. Brita was baie hulpvaarding.

Lovely farm stay in a beautifully maintained old farmhouse.

We like places offering tranquility far from the city's hustle and bustle. De Uiehuis is located at the foot of Swartberg on a beautiful farm. We had our own piece of farm. Very beautifully artfully and comfortably furnished and exactly what we needed. A nice wood stove kept us warm in the sudden cold that hit us. Brita was very helpful.

Ruim oorslaapplek met pragtige uitsig op berge.

Die huis is op ñ werkende plaas, langs ñ stil teerpad geleë met ongelooflike uitsigte op die Swart berge. Die beddens en beddegoed is van baie hoë gehalte en die uitleg het perfek vir ons gesin gewerk. Een van die kamers bevat ñ dubbelbed en ñ koninggrootte-bed wat wonderlik was om ons en ons twee klein kinders in een spasie te akkommodeer. Ons kon heerlik op die groot grasperk braai, speel, sterre kyk en gesels tot laat in die aand. Die Buffelspoort grondpad na die plaas is aan te beveel vir die ongelooflike natuurwonders en klipformasies.

Spacious overnight accommodation with a beautiful view of the mountains.

The house is located on a working farm, next to a quiet asphalt road with incredible views of the Black Mountains. The beds and bedding are of a very high quality and the layout worked perfectly for our family. One of the rooms contains a double bed and a king size bed which was great for accommodating us and our two small children in one space. We could have a great barbecue on the large lawn, play, look at the stars and chat until late in the evening. The Buffelspoort dirt road to the farm is recommended for the incredible natural wonders and rock formations.
