Fantasties asemrowend baie memories van 78 tot 81.

Ons het 16 Junie vertrek van uit Kathu. Dis baie ver maar glo my dit was die moeite werd. Ek kon vir my vroutjie en 7 jarige seun gaan wys waar ek 45 jaar terug Zastron gebore is. Baie ou herinneringe en alles. Tot die hospitaal. Die hut was asemrowend en eg Die Flintstones se tydperk. Die geskiedenis van die hut van die 18de eeu is net so interessant. Liandri en Dirkie baie dankie. Ons het ook die Lundeans Nek Pas gaan ry tot by Rhodes.

Fantastic breathtaking many memories from 78 to 81.

We left from Kathu on June 16th. It's very far but believe me it was worth it. I was able to show my wife and 7-year-old son where I was born 45 years ago in Zastron. Lots of old memories and all. To the hospital. The cabin was stunning and true to The Flintstones period. The history of the 18th century hut is equally interesting. Liandri and Dirkie thank you very much. We also drove the Lundeans Nek Pass to Rhodes.

'n Rare ervaring.

Iets heel anders as die normale. Rus en stilte, die natuur. Pragtige omgewing. Staproetes - nogal uitdagend. Iemand wat hou van gerief, elektrisiteit, bang is vir goggas en spinnekoppe moet nie kom nie. Dit is vir 'n uitgesoekte toeris (soos ons).

A rare experience.

Something very different from the normal. Rest and silence, nature. Beautiful surroundings. Hiking trails - quite challenging. Someone who likes comfort, electricity, is afraid of bugs and spiders should not come. This is for a select tourist (like us).

Hierdie was belewenis wat 'n mens nooit sal vergeet nie. Lindrie and Dirko was pragtige gashere en alles het net 200% gebeur. Hulle het uit hulle pad gegaan om ons te help met die op ry aangesien dit verskriklik nat was.

Al wat ek kan sê is: "'n eens in 'n leeftyd ervaring".

This was an experience that one will never forget. Lindrie and Dirko were beautiful hosts and everything just happened 200%. They went out of their way to help us with the drive up as it was terribly wet.

All I can say is: "a once in a lifetime experience".

Very nice location. We really enjoyed our stay.

Just be careful, there is a lot of spiders, did not like that so much but again you are in the mountains so it's probably normal. But overall we really enjoyed our stay and the host are so helpful and friendly.

Great ontspanne naweek met baie rus.

Berghut het niks luxury nie. Werk met gas en kerse. Maar as jy wil rus en werklik weer jou familie ontmoet is daar genoeg tyd vir behoorlike kommunikasie en is daar geen beter plek as die berghut nie. Wat die hut aanbetref, die kwaliteittyd saam met jou gesin is duisend persent meer werd as enige 5-ster-hotel. Gaan vir seker weer terug soontoe.

Great relaxing weekend with lots of rest.

Berghut has nothing luxury. Work with gas and candles. But if you want to rest and really meet your family again there is enough time for proper communication and there is no better place than the mountain hut. As for the cabin, the quality time with your family is worth a thousand percent more than any 5-star hotel. Will definitely go back there again.

Rustigige omgewing en kan net afskakel van die stadsgejaag.

Rustige natuur waar jy kan krag kry en net weer mens word.

Die natuurskoon is asemrowend mooi, maar die Berghut moet opgradeer word.

Ons ervaring van die natuur en die gevoel om "vry" te wees was baie spesiaal. Daar is egter 'n paar punte waaraan aandag gegee moet word: 1) Daar was geen warm water nie, ten spyte van die gas-geyser was die water koud. 2) Beter knaagdier-beheer moet toegepas word. 3) Stappers moet voor die tyd ingelig word oor die moeilikheidsgraad van die roete. Die roete is vanaf Swaan 44 tot onder nie duidelik gemerk nie. Daar is geen voetpad nie. Dis gevestigde bosse teen die steiltes af. Indien die staproete lank terug gestap is, moet stappers ingelig word. 'n Gids sal ook baie help. 4) Tariewe moet heroorweeg word. R1000.00 vir 2 persone vir 2 nagte, onder hierdie omstandighede, is nie aanvaarbaar nie.

Breathtaking scenery, but the Berghut needs to be upgraded.

Our experience of nature and feeling of freedom was so special. There are, however, a few points that need attention: 1) There was no hot water. Despite the gas geyser, the water was too cold. 2) They need to improve rodent control. 3) Hikers need to be informed beforehand about the route's difficulty level. The route from Swaan 44 down to down below is not clearly signposted. There is no trail. The vegetation down the hill is well established. If the trail was only walked long ago, hikers need to be informed. 'n Guide would also help. 4) The rates need to be reconsidered. R1000 for 2 people for 2 nights under these circumstances is not acceptable.

Die Berghut 's response

Liewe Santie, ek is baie jammer om te hoor dat julle die verblyf nie aangenaam ervaar het nie. Die hele idee van in die berg bly sonder krag, veroorsaak maar partykeer 'n ervaring wat nie vir almal is nie. Die gasgeyser is volgens ons kennis in werking en jy het ons nie in kennis gestel om te kom kyk of daar 'n probleem is nie. Agv die wind, waai die vlammetjie partykeer net dood.
Wat die knaagdiere behels, weet ek nie of hulle jou gepla het nie, dus die versoek van Lintie af om die deur toe te hou dat hul nie in die huisie ingaan om 'n probleem te wees nie. Die Berghut is in die berg en ons bewaar reeds die veldmuisies en velddiere daar, dit is vir ons baie belangrik. Ons kan hul onmoontlik nie uitroei daar nie en wil ook nie graag nie.
Die Swaan staproete is as 'n bonus vir ons gaste daar wat graag bietjie wil gaan stap, dus nie 'n roete wat gereeld deur stappers gestap word nie, ons vra ook nie 'n fooi om te gaan stap nie. Agv die reën wat ons die laaste tyd gekry het, het die veld welig gegroe, na 'n baie lang tyd van droogte.

Baie dankie vir die terugvoer. Dit is regtig vir my sleg om te hoor jul het dit nie geniet nie aangesien ons nog net positiewe terugvoer gekry het oor die verblyf en roete.

Groete Lindrie

Unieke ervaring met die meeste privaatheid en natuurskoon wat ons nog ondervind het.

Baie eenvoudig met net die nodigste, maar ongelooflik skoon en netjies. In die middel van niks en nêrens. Die natuurskoon wat jou omring is asemrowend en die rus en vrede wat jy ondervind sonder krag en selfoonsein doen die siel net goed. Die gashere is van die wonderlikste mense wat ons nog teëgekom het op so 'n plek en ons sien uit om weer daar te gaan kuier.

Unique experience with the most privacy and scenery we have ever experienced.

Very simple with only the essentials, but incredibly clean and tidy. In the middle of nothing and nowhere. The natural beauty that surrounds you is breathtaking and the peace and quiet you experience without power and cell phone signal is only good for the soul. The hosts are some of the most wonderful people we have ever encountered in such a place and we look forward to visiting again.

'n Baie lekker en rustige ervaring, net te duur.

Dit is 'n ideale plek om weg te kom uit die stad. Dis net hopeloos te duur as jy meer as 2 mense is. Dit regverdig nie per persoon-tariewe nie, maar 'n daaglikse bedrag vir die hut. Dis ook te klein vir 4 mense/beddens.

A very nice and peaceful experience, just too expensive.

It is an ideal place to get away from the city. It's just hopelessly expensive if you are more than 2 people. This does not justify per person rates, but a daily amount for the cabin. It's also too small for 4 people/beds.
