Baie netjies, modern en waarde vir geld.

Baie mooi plek met ons aankoms. Kinders het die diere op die plaas geniet.

Peaceful getaway with very friendly staff and beautiful nature surroundings.

We had a wonderful 5 day break at the Nightjar Cottage between Christmas and New Year. The hostess, Juanita, was super friendly and helpful and made sure we settled in comfortably. The photos are true to the accommodation, the cottage was even better than what we expected. We felt very safe and had a lot of privacy. It was a wonderful break away from the city for us.

Uiters ongelukkig, pragtige ligging, uiters swak diens.

Eerte keer in al die jare wat ek van webtuiste se besprekings gebruik maak en glad nie tevrede is nie. Dit wat adverteer word en die werklikheid totaal iets anders. Met ons aankoms word ons ingelig dat daar geen diens (skoonmaak en kinderoppasser} is nie, want dit is Kersnaweek. Ons word ook ingelig dat die generator nie net vir ons (16 mense, 11 volwassenes 4 klein kinders en 'n baba) aangeskakel gaan word gedurende loadshedding nie. Indien ek nie vooruit betaal het nie sou ek net daar en dan gery het na 'n ander plek. Beddegoed en handdoeke nie een keer geruil in 7 dae nie. Met aankoms ontdek dat daar slegs 2 kamers met een dubbelbed in elk is vir 4 volwasse pare en 2 enkel volwassenes. Volgens foto's was ek onder indruk dat daar ten minste 4 kamers plus die dakkamer is. Dan was plek beslis nie vooraf gif gespuit nie. Alle beddens en ook huis binne was oortrek met klein giftige swart spinnekoppe en vismotte en ook 3 paddas. My pa en seun tussen hul tone gebyt deur spinnekoppe en my baie moeite en onkoste gekos om hul uit te sorteer. Myself ook op kniekop gebyt. Volgende dag word ek 'n blik gif in die hand gestop. Die warmbad buite se water was nie behandel nie en alge op muur en vloer binne bad. Die donkie ook nie een keer skoongemaak nie en was vol as en het dus nie effektief gewerk nie. As sakke klaar op dag 4 maar nie nuwes ontvang nie. Enkel vel, swak kwaliteit toiletpapier in toilette beslis nie geskik vir dames nie. Hout wat voorsien is was nat en in baie groot ongemaklike blokke gesny. Sogenaamde gratis WiFi was meer af as aan en het my as 'n besigheideienaar vir seker werk laat verloor omdat kliënte my nie in die hande kon kry nie. Ek was waarlik van plan om hierdie mense aan te vat oor hul advertensie en die werklike ervaring totaal en al nie dieselfde is nie. Nee kyk, glad nie tevrede nie.

Extremely unfortunate, beautiful location, extremely poor service.

First time in all the years I've used a booking website and not been satisfied at all. What is advertised and the reality is totally different. On our arrival we are informed that there is no service (cleaning and babysitting} because it is Christmas weekend. We are also informed that the generator will not be switched on just for us (16 people, 11 adults 4 small children and a baby) not during loadshedding. If I hadn't paid in advance I would have driven to another place right then and there. Bed linen and towels not changed once in 7 days. On arrival discovered that there were only 2 rooms with one double bed in each is for 4 adult couples and 2 single adults.According to photos, I was under the impression that there are at least 4 rooms plus the attic room.Then the place was definitely not sprayed with poison beforehand.All the beds and also inside the house were covered with small poisonous black spiders and fish moths and also 3 frogs. My father and son bitten between their toes by spiders and it took me a lot of effort and expense to sort them out. Bitten myself on the knee too. Next day I got a tin of poison stuffed in my hand. The hot tub outside's water was n it does not treat and algae on wall and floor inside bath. The donkey was also not cleaned once and was full of ash and therefore did not work effectively. If bags finished on day 4 but no new ones received. Single sheet, poor quality toilet paper in toilets definitely not suitable for ladies. Wood provided was wet and cut into very large awkward blocks. So-called free WiFi was off more than on, and as a business owner was sure to put me out of business because customers couldn't get a hold of me. I was really going to take these people to task about their ad and the actual experience being totally different. No look, not satisfied at all.

Wonderful thank uou.

I was not aware that there were no cleaning services. I would have liked to be told in advance, as I just had a big surgery 2 weeks ago.

Quiet and very beautiful.

The location and place is incredibly beautiful, there is everything one needs. It is very animal friendly and our dog enjoyed the lawn and pond very much. I would suggest paying attention to the little things, e.g. Quality bedding (the 'inner' didn't fit in the cover), I would also put a small net to be able to clean the hot tub itself. The fridge's temperature was too cold and at freezing point even though we turned it down. It's very minor stuff and didn't make it any less fun for us, but hopefully it helps!

A perfect place to unwind and recharge the batteries.

We loved our stay, it was so peaceful with only the sounds of nature to listen to. The wood-fired hot tub was amazing and the staff were all so friendly and helpful. Will definitely be back.

Fantasties!

Die Nightjar huis was perfek toegerus vir 'n winterwegbreek met 'n kaggel en 'n Kol Kol-warmbad. Die diens was baie vriendelik en die streek was absoluut pragtig, net jammer ons kon nie langer bly nie!

Fantastic!

The Nightjar house was perfectly equipped for a winter getaway with a fireplace and a Kol Kol hot tub. The service was very friendly and the region was absolutely beautiful, just a shame we couldn't stay longer!
