Mooi en netjies.

Die huisie is mooi en skoon. Sal wel van 'n TV gehou het het op 'n Saterdag ingeboek. Al die eetplekkies het 2 uur toegemaak, het rondgery, alles bekyk maar verder was daar eintlik nie veel om te doen nie. Verder het ons lekker gebly.

Nice and neat.

The house is nice and clean. Would have liked a TV checked in on a Saturday. All the places to eat closed in 2 hours, drove around, looked at everything but other than that there really wasn't much to do. Other than that we had a nice stay.

Baie netjiese en skoon plekkie in die hartjie van Merweville. Huisie net te warm. Sou lugversorging aanbeveel. Waaiers onvoldoende. Geen wifi. Goeie kombuis geriewe en pragtige skoon linne en badkamer.

Baie oulike en netjiese verblyf. Sal dit hoog aanbeveel.

Daar is nie WiFi nie, so maak maar die nodige voorsiening. Daar is nou wel nie n lessenaar in die kamer nie maar die kombuis het n lekker tafel en counter top. Die counter top is ook naby n kragpunt en lekker om op te werk. Daar is braaigeriewe en baie lekker om te braai op 'n vars Karoo aandjie. Sal daarvan gehou het as die kombuisdeur 'n staldeur tipe was sodat ons die boonste deur kon oop los. Ek sal enige tyd weer daar oorslaap. Pragtig en netjies en Brian is 'n uitstekende gasheer.

Very cute and neat accommodation. Would highly recommend it.

There is no WiFi, so make the necessary arrangements. There is no desk in the room, but the kitchen has a nice table and counter top. The counter top is also close to a power point and nice to work on. There are braai facilities and it's very nice to braai on a fresh Karoo evening. Would have liked if the kitchen door was a barn door type so we could leave the top door open. I would stay there again anytime. Beautiful and tidy and Brian is an excellent host.

Die Ou Winkeltjie 's response

Noted Wim. Die Ou Winkeltjie was never advertised with DStv and most visitors to the Karoo prefer to sit outside by the braai area and look at the stars. Further, you would have noticed that it is not possible to add mosquito screens to the windows due to the way they open and the position of the latches and catches. However there was a bug and mosquito spray in the kitchen cupboard, perhaps you missed it.

Beautifully restored and appointed old Karoo huisie in large grounds with burgeoning fruit trees.

Host Brian is a true gentleman and has taken care of every little detail in this special self-catering cottage. Highly recommended.

Pragtige plekkie.

A very pleasant stay in a very quiet, clean and pleasant environment.

I had never been to Merweville before and so I had no preconceived ideas or expectations of either the town or accommodation. I was very pleasantly surprised on both counts. There is not a lot to see or do but for me it’s part of the charm of a small Karoo town. There are no bright lights or restaurants so bring what you need and enjoy the ambiance. My accommodation was just perfect for my needs and is an ideal stay for a couple. The bedroom and bathroom with a bath and a shower was great and a well appointed kitchen just begs you to self cater.

Pragtige plek met alles wat jy nodig het.

Merwewille was 'n aangename verrassing. Die eenheid het alles wat nodig is. Miskien 'n spieël by 'n kragpunt om hare droog te blaas kan goed wees. Dit was baie warm en die muskiete het ons amper weggedra, maar die pragtige omgewing maak dat 'n mens daarvan vergeet. Brian deel waardevolle inligting en beleef ons a.g.v. daarvan 'n pragtige sonsondergang en 'n asemrowende volmaan bo vanaf die berg. Dankie Brian, dit is vir ewig in ons geheue.

Beautiful place with everything you need.

Merwewille was a pleasant surprise. The unit has everything needed. Maybe a mirror by a power point to blow dry hair would be good. It was very hot and the mosquitoes almost carried us away, but the beautiful surroundings make you forget about it. Brian shares valuable information and experiences us a.g.v. of which a beautiful sunset and a breathtaking full moon above from the mountain. Thanks Brian, it's forever in our memory.

'n Baie lekker plekkie om in te bly.

As jy Merweville toe wil gaan om te ontspan en jou eie ding te doen is hierdie die regte plek. Baie bekostigbaar met alles wat jy nodig het en baie netjies. Die gasheer, Brian, is baie vriendelik en kom goed oor die weg met feitlik enige iemand. Ek sal Die Ou Winkeltjie sonder twyfel aan enige iemand wat Merweville wil besoek aanbeveel. Ons sal beslis weer hierheen terugkeer.

A very nice place to stay.

If you want to go to Merweville to relax and do your own thing, this is the right place. Very affordable with everything you need and very tidy. The host, Brian, is very friendly and gets along well with almost anyone. I would without a doubt recommend Die Ou Winkeltjie to anyone who wants to visit Merweville. We will definitely return here again.

Baie netjiese goed-toegeruste ontspanplek.

Die huis is redelik ruim en baie netjies. Die bed is gemaklik en die badkamer skoon en goed beplan. Ons sal beslis weer hier gaan bly as ons weer in Merweville oorslaap.

Merweville op sy allerbeste!

Ons het baie lekker gebly by die Ou Winkeltjie in Merweville. Hierdie was my 3de besoek aan Merweville en ons 1ste besoek aan die Ou Winkeltjie. Brian was baie gaaf en behulpsaam. Die verblyf was uitstekend, netjies en skoon. Die huis het al die nodige geriewe gehad. Al wat die huisie dalk gekort het was 'n braaitang vir hout omdraai en 'n buitelig vir die braai.

Merweville at its best!

We had a great stay at Die Ou Winkeltjie in Merweville. This has been my 3rd visit to Merweville, but my first stay at Ou Winkeltjie. Brian was very kind and helpful. The accommodation was excellent, neat and clean. The house had all the necessary facilities. All that the house needed were braai tongs and a light at the braai.

Baie netjiese, tradisionele Karoo-huisie.

Hierdie ou gebou is pas gerestoureer. Dit is baie gerieflik en ek het die bed heerlik gemaklik gevind. Die meubels en fasiliteite is uitstekend. Brian was baie vriendelik en behulpsaam. Ek sal net aanraai dat daar nog 'n lamp en nog 'n mat in die sitkamer aangebring word. Geen TV of DStv nie, maar ek het die stilte geniet.

Very neat, traditional Karoo house.

This old building has just been restored. It is very comfortable and I found the bed wonderfully comfortable. The furniture and facilities are excellent. Brian was very friendly and helpful. I would only advise that another lamp and another carpet be installed in the living room. No TV or DStv, but I enjoyed the silence.
