Gasvry, heerlikste etes, lekker rustige atmosfeer en natuurskoon.

Die ontvangs deur die eienaars was onbeskryflik vriendelik. Ongelooflik gasvry en neem gaste se belange ter harte. Die aandete en ontbyt is uit die boonste rakke. Ek sal die Rivier-houthuisie vir enige een aanbeveel.

Vrede net buite Johannesburg.

Jy kan nie glo hoe naby Die Rivier-Houthuis aan Johannesburg is nie, en tog voel dit of jy ure weg van die stad af is. Baie mooi plekkie, netjies en oulik, en die eienaars is vriendelik en behulpsaam.

Home away from home.

This is such a lovely place to stay if you wish to forget that the outside world exists. Even though not situated far away from shopping malls it feels like you are on a farm far away from any civilization. The hosts are so friendly and make you feel right at home.

Enjoyable and pleasant overnight stay.

At the time of booking, we were not aware that the accommodation is not a 'free standing' unit. Having said this, my wife and I found the quarters satisfactory. The owners made our stay very enjoyable. The food is excellent and surroundings peaceful. I would recommend to all who enjoy an 'old world' atmosphere.

Excellent, excellent, excellent.

Most definitely the perfect place with the perfect host and hostess, they absolutely made us feel right at home, with every attention to detail. The breakfast was scrumptious and the scenery was breathtaking. The guest room is very neat, spacious and tastefully decorated, and it lacks for nothing. The one night spent there was the best home away from home, if not even better. Thank you Leenster for everything, from meeting us in the pouring rain to the freshly plucked herbs from the garden. Die Rivier-Houthuis comes highly recommended, don't even hesitate to make your reservation.

Perfect, beautiful and tranquil and I felt like a new person after the stay.

It was the perfect place with the perfect host and hostess, they absolutely made us feel at home and put in a lot of effort. The food was delicious and the scenery was breathtaking. The rooms are very neat and have everything you need even with a small child. I would definitely recommend the place with peace of mind.

Foutloos, pragtig en rustig ek het gevoel soos 'n nuwe mens na die verblyf.

Dit was die perfekte skepping met die perfekte gasheer en -dame, hulle het ons absoluut tuis laat voel en baie moeite gedoen. Die kos was uit die boonste rakke en die natuurskoon was asemrowend. Die kamers is baie netjies en het alles wat 'n mens nodig het selfs met 'n klein kind. Ek sal beslis die plek met gemoedsrus aanbeveel.

Die gasvrou en gasheer is super vriendelike mense wat ons van die eerste oomblik af laat welkom voel het. Ons was met ope arms ontvang en het sommer dadelik tuis gevoel. Sal ek weer daar gaan oornag?

Such peace and tranquillity.

This place was so peaceful. I'm so sorry we only stayed for one night. Leenster's personal attention was really amazing. And her attention to little details just made our stay so pleasant. It really is an amazing place to just take a break from city life without having to travel for hours. They went out of their way to make it a very pleasant stay. And the breakfast was amazing. Thank you Casper and Leenster. We will be back to try your ciabatta next time.

A cosy home away from home along the Crocodile River.

My wife and I decided we would spend our wedding anniversary at this lovely place. The houthuis is literally a very very large wood house. This instantly gives it a positive sense of difference to any other location. It is situated along the Crocodile River on a plot of land with a stunning grassy garden. Leenster is a formidable cook and I highly recommend you request additional meals if you do not feel like driving out. It is a very pet-friendly home with multiple dogs and cats (we love this) but I understand it may not be everyone's cup of tea.

Quiet.

Although it is a great break away, it is not said that one stays in the owners' house. We thought it was a small house next to a river, but it's only a room in the people's house. So it is not quite so private.

This review has been translated,click hereto view the original version.

Rustig.

Alhoewel dit 'n puik wegbreek is word daar nie vertel dat mens in die eienaars se huis bly nie. Ons het gedink dis 'n klein huisie langs 'n rivier, maar dis eintlik net 'n kamer in die mense se huis. So mens is nie heeltemal so privaat nie.

Die Rivier-Houthuis's response

Hallo Marietjie
Ek is jammer dat dit nie vir jul privaat genoeg was nie. Ons doen altyd moeite om wel dit aan ons gaste te bied. Daar staan ook op die webtuiste se inligting dat dit 'n kamer in 'n huis is. Ons sal jul baie graag weer wil ontvang. Seën vir julle.

Dit was 'n onvergeetlike lekker naweek wat ons altyd sal bybly.

Ons is hartlik verwerlkom deur Leenster en Casper, ons het onmiddellik tuis en gemaklik gevoel in hul huis wat gevul was met aromiese reuke. Die rustigheid langs die rivier was onbeskryflike en ons het die honde se teenwoordigheid wat in die water baljaar het, baie geniet. My enigste spyt is dat die naweek te vinnig verby was, want ons sou beslis langer wou aangebly het. Ek kon nie wag om ons ondervinding te deel met familie en vriende en hulle is net so angstig om na die Rivier-Houthuis te gaan.

Soos ons kindertydse vakansies by ver familie: sprokiemooi en lekker, en sien sommer nou al uit na volgende jaar se besoek.

In my eenjarige se woorde: Wow-wow-wow! Pragtige woning met iets nuuts om te betower om elke draai. Kos wat die TV-sjefs se monde sal laat water. Warm verwelkoming van mense wat ons dadelik soos ou vriende laat voel het. Bowenal was dit die klein goedjies wat dit besonders gemaak het: die krat vol erfgoed speelgoed waarmee my kleinding sonder huiwering toegelaat is om te speel; die heerlike slaai saam met ons braaigoed "want dis nie moeite nie"; vars blomme in die badkamer en heerlike koekies saam die koffie-goed; baba hondjie en katte wat op 'n klein dogtertjie se versoek opgespoor en nader gedra word. Kan nie wag om terug te gaan nie!

Uitsonderlike gasvryheid.

Ek kan beslis Die Rivier-Houthuis aanbeveel. Die eienaars, Casper en Leenster, is so vriendelik en gaan uit hul pad om seker te maak jy is gemaklik en het alles wat jy benodig. En die huis is soos iets uit 'n sprokiesverhaal. Oud en nuut is stylvol en smaaklik gekombineer. Alles was netjies en skoon. Die tuine is so mooi gemaak. Kan sien daar is baie liefde in die eiendom gesit. Dit was my man se verjaarsdag en toe ons arriveer, het daar sjokolade vir hom op sy kussing gewag! So 'n spesiale persoonlike "touch". Ek en my man het ons verblyf vreeslik baie geniet.

Voel soos familie.

Die was nog vir my die lekkerste plek waar ek ooit gebly het. Ek het so tuis gevoel. Die area is pragtig en so gemaklik gevoel by Casper en Leenster. Ek sal beslis weer kom kuier al het ek nie iets aan nie.

Jy is 'n absolute skat! Ons wil weer saam met jou kuier!

Die toppunt van gasvryheid! Dankie Leenster en Casper!

Die Rivier-Houthuis is geleë in die mees rustigste en mooiste omgewing langs die rivier. Ons sou graag meer tyd wou spandeer het om die rustige atmosfeer te geniet en al die diere te leer ken. Ons sal dus definitief weer by die Houthuis oorslaap in die toekoms en die Cradle of Humankind, asook al die ander besienswaardighede van die area te besoek. Die Houthuis is 'n besonderse gebou en 'n mens kan nie ophou kyk na die houtwerk nie. Ontbyt was uit die boonste rakke en 'n moet!

Beste Amanda en Brian,

Julle was wonderlike en gemaklike gaste! Baie dankie ook vir die mooi woorde, ons hoop om julle gou weer te sien!

Breathtaking to the book.

Stunning, well-maintained. Good value for money. Lovely view, quiet, beautiful gardens, and forest vibe by the river. Good hospitality.

Asemrowend en uit die boek uit.

Pragtig, goed versorgde plek. Waarde vir geld. Lieflike uitsig, stilte, pragtige tuine en woud-effek teen die rivier. Goeie gasvryheid.

We had a fanstastic weekend.

We received the warmest welcome the minute we arrived. Leenster and Conrad are the perfect hosts. Everything was perfect from A-Z. What stood out for me, was the attention to detail in everything from your room to the 5 star breakfast. The breakfast are worth 10 stars rather. The environment is quiet and peaceful, a fantastic place for a weekend away. We met as strangers, left as friends. Thank you for an unforgettable experience.

Baie dankie julle liewe 2 mense! Ons kuier saam met julle was werklik spesiaal, en ons sien daarna uit om julle in die somerweer te sien!

Home away from home - hospitality at its best in a stunning setting.

This place is a gem - we were treated to the warmest hospitality, delicious home cooked breakfasts (best bread we have ever tasted!) in a delightful home right on the Crocodile River where our every need was catered for. Leenster and Casper were the perfect hosts - friendly and helpful without being intrusive; our rooms were stunning and comfortable ... so much so that we didn't want to get out of bed! Attention to detail was amazing - home baked rusks, heated blankets, sweeties to snack on, a roaring fire ... Our dietary needs were sensitively catered for (we are vegetarian and my one daughter is vegan) - I cannot put into words how awesome this place is - unspoilt beauty so close to the bustling city.

Die Rivier-Houthuis's response

Dear Sue,
Thank you so much for your kind words! We would love to see you back! Hope your dad is well, love to everyone.

Kindest regards,
C& L

Invitingly warm and friendly cabin in the woods.

Die Rivier Houthuis was a lovely experience. Casper & Leenster were very accommodating to our needs. Our room was lovely and warm and there were all sorts of nice treats for us. They have a brilliant collection of books and a cosy fireplace to relax by. Leenster made the most fabulous breakfasts. We enjoyed sitting outside on the deck, listening to the birds and just breathing in the smell of the river and all the trees. Die Rivier Houthuis felt like our own little cabin in the woods.
