Baie mooi omgewing, huisie met ou wêreldse sjarme.

Die eienares was baie behulpsaam, sonder om enigsins ons privaatheid te steur. Huis was netjies en skoon. Dit is 'n ou gebou met dik mure en 'n baie lekker kuier-kombuis met 'n groot vuurherd. Vuurmaakhout was beskikbaar teen 'n billike tarief. Dit is naby Caledon sowel as die Hemel-en Aarde Vallei, tog is dit ver genoeg van die teerpad af om baie veilig en baie stil te wees. Die 3 km grondpad is mooi en geskik vir 'n gewone sedanvoertuig. Die huis is heeltemal groot genoeg vir 5 mense. Baie goeie waarde vir geld vir 4 of 5 mense.

Very nice setting, cottage with old world charm.

The owner was very helpful, without disturbing our privacy at all. House was neat and clean. It is an old building with thick walls and a very nice cozy kitchen with a large hearth. Firewood was available at a reasonable rate. It is close to Caledon as well as the Heaven and Earth Valley, yet it is far enough off the beaten track to be very safe and very quiet. The 3 km dirt road is nice and suitable for a normal sedan vehicle. The house is completely big enough for 5 people. Very good value for money for 4 or 5 people.

Het heerlik gekuier.

Die afwesigheid van warm water was 'n probleem. Daar is wel 'n paar leemtes - afdakkie oor ingang nodig sodat mens nie in die reën staan om oop te sluit nie en 'n stoepie aan die een kant om 'n skuiling te hê om te braai of net buite te sit om die pragtige omgewing te beskou. Daar is ook nie 'n tafel om by te eet of speletjies op te speel indien dit reën nie.

Had a great time.

The absence of hot water was a problem. There are a few gaps though - canopy over entrance needed so you don't have to stand in the rain to open and a little porch on one side to have a shelter to braai or just sit outside to enjoy the beautiful surroundings to consider There is also no table to eat at or play games on if it rains.

Ongelooflike rustigheid en charismatiese ligging.

Die romatiese Veepos het alles wat 'n mens nodig het om lekker te ontspan en lang ure voor die kaggel te spandeer. Die privaatheid wat 'n mens geniet in die eenheid is beslis 'n wenner gewees. Sal beslis weer hier kom draai.

Dankie Joan en Xavier vir die omgee - veral die kratte hout wat jul kom neersit het sodat ons in die koue vuur kon maak. Ons het jul sorg baie waardeer. Die gasstofie en -geyser was wonderlik.

'n Pragtige, stil en ontspanne wegbreek met prentjie mooi geriewe en ouwêreldse gasvryheid.

Die Koringhuis is 'n juweel. Die huis is ruim, mooi versorg en laat mens dadelik tuis voel. Ons kon aande langs die groot vuurherd in die kombuis sit en kuier en soggens op die ruim stoep sit en ons vergaap aan die prentjie-mooi uitsig oor die valleie en berge. Die kinders het hulleself gate uit geniet en die vryheid wat die plaas bied het hulle goed gedoen. Die gasvryheid van die gasfamilie was merkwaardig - regtig ’n fantastiese belewenis. Ons sal die Koringhuis aanbeveel vir gesinne met kinders of paartjies sonder kinders wat rustigheid en stilte soek - dit was 'n belewenis wat ons nog nie baie teëgekom het voorheen nie. Ons sien gou weer.

A beautiful, quiet and relaxing getaway with picture-perfect amenities and old-world hospitality.

The Koringhuis is a gem. The house is spacious, well maintained and makes you feel at home immediately. In the evenings we could sit next to the large fireplace in the kitchen and socialize and in the morning sit on the spacious porch and marvel at the picture-perfect view over the valleys and mountains. The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and the freedom offered by the farm did them good. The hospitality of the host family was remarkable - really a fantastic experience. We would recommend the Koringhuis to families with children or couples without children looking for peace and quiet - this was an experience we had not come across many before. We'll see you again soon.

Plaas-ervaring, maar nie waarde vir geld.

Mooi uitsig en rustigheid, maar teen die prys verwag mens 'n plek sonder spinnerakke en stof al is dit 'n ou gebou. Ek sou dink die plek behoort maksimum R800 'n nag te vra.

Farm experience but not value for money.

Nice view and tranquility, but for the price one expects a place without cobwebs and dust even if it is an old building. I would think the place should charge a maximum of R800 a night.

Rustig en so lekker!

Ons naweek by Die Koringhuis was presies wat ons wou gehad het - plaas, skape, landerye, ongelooflike mooi uitsig en die wind deur die bloekombome! Die blyplek is baie netjies ingerig en gerieflik. Pragtige ou meubels wat netjies versorg is en 'n gemaklike bed. Die kaggel in die kombuis is heerlik as die aande koel is. Netjiese grondpad (enige kar kan daar ry) en so rustig.

Neat dirt road (any car can drive there) and so peaceful.

Great breakaway from the city. Lovely farm life.

We had a great time - from the huge fireplace to reading through the 1967 Sarie and Huisgenoot, the old artifacts throughout the house, the sheep and peacocks on your doorstep as well as the leisurely walks with the two resident border collies. We unfortunately did not get to meet Joan and Xavier as they were away for the weekend. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life and to rejuvenate the soul.

Ongelooflike rustige atmosfeer met pragtige uitsigte en baie naby aan Caledon en Hemel & Aarde.

Ons het heerlik gebly en ontspan in hierdie pragtige historiese huisie. Heerlik ver gaan stap en berg geklim. Heerlike binne en buite braai met al die basiese benodighede. Perfekte plek om af te skakel en steeds lekker naby aan al die wonderlik wyplase van die Hemel en Aarde vallei. Ook so lekker naby aan Kaapstad, ons kom Maandagoggend vroeg terugry en betyds wees vir werk wat ons klein vakansietjie net daai bietjie langer gemaak het. Joan en Xavier was vriendelik en hulpvaardig. Wens ons kon elke naweek gaan.

Perfect place to switch off and still close to all the wonderful pastures of the Hemel en Aarde valley. Also so nice and close to Cape Town, we will drive back early on Monday morning and be on time for work which made our little vacation just that little bit longer.

Eenvoud van die plaaslewe.

Aan die einde van die grondpad na die plaas, op die laaste draai voor die opstal stop ons vir 'n trop skape wat in die pad staan en wei. Stadig ry ons deur tot by die opstal waar ons die boervrou aantref, besig is om 'n klipmuur te bou! Dit was 'n ware tuiskoms op die plaas so reg uit my kinderjare. Die huis is 'n eenvoudige, losstaande gebou langs die plaasopstal. Was seker vir jare 'n stoor en die struktuur was waarskynlik opgerig toe die Franse Hugenote in Suid Afrika aangeland het. Dit het 'n ware outydse gevoel. Geen moderne fieterjasies hier nie. Na die voëlgesang en oggendlig ons wakker gemaak het, ontvang ons op die eerste oggend 'n komplimentêre bordjie met vlakgebakte vetkoeke. Saam met die botter en plaaskonfyt 'n feesmaal op sy eie. Wat 'n lekker begin vir die naweek. Stap wyd oor die plaas of sit op die stoep en tuur oor die golwende heuwels. Ry fiets of lees boek. Hierdie uitsig naby die bopunt van Shaw se pas is asemrowend en tydloos. Die verblyf ook. As jy regtig moeg word vir die perfekte prentjie kan jy die kort rit deur die Hemel en Aarde (Hemel op aarde!) vallei aanpak Hermanus toe. Maar los maar. Na die Koringhuis is Hermanus ene klatergoud. Die eenvoudige lewe is beter. Dink aan die soort huis waarin jou ouma(grootjie) gebly het en jy gaan weet wat om te verwag. Ysterkatel beddens, eenvoudige meubels en dik, dik mure wat skuins staan. Elke deur is anders en is herwin uit ou plaasgoed. Vensterbanke is diep genoeg om in te sit. Beddens lyk outyds, maar slaap lekker. Die slaapkamers was skoon en netjies. Die nag doodstil met geen gedruis van motors nie. Net wat mens nodig het na 'n lang dag in die stad se lawaai. Die plaaskombuis is eenvoudig toegerus, maar het alles wat nodig is om 'n maal voor te berei. Geen Yuppie Chef hier nie. Die toevoeging van 'n appelkoospitvloer en 'n bed in die kombuis is 'n unieke idee. Wens my huis was groot genoeg daarvoor! Die badkamer is genadiglik modern en goed toegerus. 'n Knik na die verlede is die toilet met die houer teen die dak en 'n ketting wat van bo af hang. Daar is geen nare outydse verassings hier nie. Alle water kom uit die plaaslike boorgat en daar is hier nog nie waterbeperkings nie. Tesame met elektrisiteit regdeur is dit die enigste tekens dat mens jou nie in die jare toeka bevind nie. Die klein sitkamer/voorkamer is toegerus met 'n kaggel, maar dit was ongebruik. Die kombuis is 'n heerlike kuierplek met sy eie groot kaggel vir die koue winteraande. Buite was 'n draagbare braai gedoente op 'n kruiwa vir dié wat nou eenvoudig nie kan lewe sonder 'n vleisie op die kole nie. Bring boeke, bordspeletjies en jou gesin. Los jou stres en probleme by die huis. Daar is 'n ou reisigers spreuk wat lei: "Neem dubbeld die geld en helfte die kere." Bespreek dubbeld die tyd en bring helfte die elektronika. Geniet die ware plaaslewe. O ja - ongelukkig is daar wel selfoonontvangs op die plaas. Sit die raaskas af en geniet die stilte ...

Simplicity of farm life.

At the end of the dirt road to the farm, on the last bend before the homestead, we stop for a herd of sheep standing in the road and grazing. Slowly we drive through to the homestead where we find the farmer's wife building a stone wall! It was a real homecoming to the farm so straight from my childhood. The house is a simple, detached building next to the farmstead. Probably was a storehouse for years and the structure was probably erected when the French Huguenots landed in South Africa. It has a real old fashioned feel to it. No modern frills here. After the birdsong and morning light woke us up, we received on the first morning a complimentary plate with shallow-baked fat cakes. Together with the butter and farm jam a feast on its own. What a nice start to the weekend. Stroll across the farm or sit on the porch and gaze over the rolling hills. Ride a bike or read a book. This view near the top of Shaw's Pass is breathtaking and timeless. The accommodation too. If you really get tired of the perfect picture, you can take the short drive through the Hemel en Aarde (Heaven on Earth!) valley to Hermanus. But let it go. After the Koringhuis, Hermanus is tinsel gold. The simple life is better. Think about the kind of house your grandmother lived in and you will know what to expect. Iron kettle beds, simple furniture and thick, thick walls that stand at an angle. Each door is different and is recycled from old farm goods. Windowsills are deep enough to sit in. Beds look old fashioned, but sleep well. The bedrooms were clean and tidy. The night dead silent with no roar of cars. Just what one needs after a long day in the city's noise. The farm kitchen is simply equipped, but has everything needed to prepare a meal. No Yuppie Chef here. Adding an apricot kernel floor and a bed in the kitchen is a unique idea. Wish my house was big enough for that! The bathroom is graciously modern and well equipped. A nod to the past is the toilet with the container on the roof and a chain hanging from above. There are no nasty old fashioned cremations here. All water comes from the local borehole and there are no water restrictions here yet. Together with electricity throughout, these are the only signs that one does not find oneself in the years tokea. The small living room/front room was equipped with a fireplace, but it was unused. The kitchen is a lovely place to hang out with its own large fireplace for the cold winter evenings. Outside, a portable braai was done on a wheelbarrow for those who simply cannot live without a little meat on the coals. Bring books, board games and your family. Leave your stress and problems at home. There is an old travelers proverb that leads: "Take twice the money and half the times." Book twice the time and bring half the electronics. Enjoy the real farm life. Oh yes - unfortunately there is cell phone reception on the farm. Turn off the noise and enjoy the silence...

Rustig en 'n besondere ervaring.

Baie dankie vir die heerlike rustyd wat ons daar in julle pragtige omgewing kon geniet het. Die varsgebakte broodjie en plaaseiers was 'n welkome bederf. Dit was die ideale plek om ons vakansie te kon begin.

Ons naweek was fantasties en die grootste rede daarvoor was omdat ons so baie baie lekker gebly het in Die Koringhuis.

Die huis self is 'n geskiedenisles. Tuisgebakte brood, konfyt en botter. Tuisgebakte beskuit en koekies wat mens kan koop. Te heerlik. Dan die besonderse gasvryheid van Joan en Xavier is die kersie op die koek. Baie Dankie. Alles was perfek!

Our weekend was fantastic and the biggest reason for that was because we had so much fun staying in Die Koringhuis.

The house itself is a history lesson. Home-baked bread, jam and butter. Home-baked rusks and cookies that you can buy. Too delicious. Then the exceptional hospitality of Joan and Xavier is the icing on the cake. Thank you very much. Everything was perfect!

We felt close to heaven in the quiet serenity of Die Koringhuis.

We enjoyed it so much, my friend left her hat there because she felt it went with the decor :-) We will definitely return sometime in the future. It would be great to mention that you provide some cereal and some condiments / let people know whether the fireplace is in working order and if the braai wood is usable. There were also some cookies there that we were not sure how to pay for. Overall it was a great stay. Highly recommended for people who want to feel relaxed and rejuvenated by nature.

Sjarmante, rustige kuierplek vir moeë stadsmense.

Die Koringhuis is in 'n pragtige omgewing - veral in die somer. Rustig en baie mooi. Die huis self is ʼn perfekte kombinasie van outydse sjarme en moderne toebehore. Veral die ‘ekstras’ het my beïndruk: sout, peper, olie en tuisgebakte brood. Dis die ideale wegbreekplek vir stadsmense.

Charming, peaceful hangout for tired city folk.

The Koringhuis is in a beautiful setting - especially in the summer. Quiet and very beautiful. The house itself is a perfect combination of old-fashioned charm and modern fittings. I was especially impressed by the 'extras': salt, pepper, oil and home-baked bread. It's the ideal getaway for city dwellers.

'n Wonderlike ervaring!

'n Rustige, lieflike plek. Ons het ons verblyf baie geniet, veral die lekker gesellige vuurhert in die kombuis! 'n Hoogtepunt was ook toe Xavier ons saamgevat het om die skape en lammers te gaan voer. Een nag was ongelukkig net te kort en ons sal graag teruggaan om 'n bietjie langer te bly.
