Donkieshoek was een van die beste fasiliteite wat ek in 'n lang tyd ondervind het.

Dit is 'n wonderlike fasiliteit. Alles spreek van keurigheid en smaak. Die ligging mag dalk vir party mense bekommer omdat dit apart en effens uit die hoofdorp is, maar die veiligheidsmaatreëls was puik en dit was heerlik om op die stoep te kuier met 'n braai.

Donkieshoek was one of the best facilities I have experienced in a long time.

It's a great facility. Everything speaks of finesse and taste. The location may worry some people because it is separate and slightly out of the main town, but the security measures were great and it was lovely to hang out on the stoep with a braai.

Ek reis baie. Donkieshoek is net fantasties! Alles rondom die plekkie is lieflik.

Op rand van dorp. Stilte! Vrede! Rustig. Oop vlaktes. Lieflike huisie binne en buite. Baie skoon. Lig en smaakvol. n!

Heerlik op stoep gebraai, Karoo-berge bewonder en donkies se spelery geniet.

Ons het heerlik in die uitstekend toegeruste en pragtige huisie gebly. Aangesien dit baie warm was, sou lugverkoelers en/of 'n swembad dit nog lekkerder gemaak het, maar die waaiers het gehelp.

Deliciously barbecued on the veranda, admiring the Karoo mountains and enjoying the donkeys' games.

We had a wonderful stay in the excellently equipped and beautiful house. Since it was very hot, air conditioners and/or a pool would have made it even nicer, but the fans helped.

Heeltemal te kort. Het sommer 'n welkom gevoel gehad. Dit is lekker stil en baie ruim.

Dit was ek en my man saam met my ouers. My pa beweeg baie moeilik en is in 'n rolstoel of loopraam, en ons kon hom baie maklik daar hanteer. Daar is meer as genoeg spasie. Ons het wel net een aand oorgeslaap oppad vanaf Upington Kaap toe, maar ek sal verseker weer soontoe gaan vir langer. Dit is baie netjies, baie goed ingerig. Daar is baie pakplek om uit te pak. Lekker beddens en alles is skoon en baie mooi. Dit donkies is 'n groot treat. En die ander diere het ons ook vermaak. Dit is so heerlik stil. Lekker binne-braai, en dan die buite braai. Mens kan net lekker kuier daar. Donkieshoek het my hart gesteel. Ons sal verseker weer daarna toe gaan. Die kos (braaipakkies, slaai en braaibroodjies) wat ons bestel het was ook heerlik. Dit het dinge vir ons ook baie makliker gemaak om nie goed teen pad te koop nie. So hulle doen baie moeite. Ons het gevra om DSTV te hê en alles was duidelik en maklik. Die WiFi is ook goed. Ons het geen probleme gehad nie.

Totally too short. Just had a welcome feeling. It is nice and quiet and very spacious.

It was me and my husband with my parents. My father is very difficult to move and is in a wheelchair or walker, and we could handle him there very easily. There is more than enough space. We only stayed one night on the way from Upington to the Cape, but I will definitely go there again for longer. It is very neat, very well furnished. There is plenty of storage space to unpack. Nice beds and everything is clean and very nice. These donkeys are a big treat. And the other animals also entertained us. It is so wonderfully quiet. Nice indoor grilling, and then outdoor grilling. You can just have a good time there. Donkieshoek stole my heart. We will definitely go there again. The food (grill packs, salad and braai buns) we ordered was also delicious. It also made things a lot easier for us not to buy things on the road. So they put in a lot of effort. We asked to have DSTV and everything was clear and easy. The WiFi is also good. We had no problems.

An enjoyable house with high-quality finishes and furniture.

Donkieshoek is a modern house in a quiet setting. There is no traffic noise from the main road, which is heavily used by big trucks transporting minerals. The barbecue area is exceptional. The bedrooms are spacious, and the en-suite bathrooms are modern.

Best weekend in a long time.

We had the most incredible time visiting Calvinia, and staying at Donkieshoek was just the cherry on top! It's such a beautiful stopover, we didn't want to leave. We will definitely book a longer stay next time. Every single thing has been thought of to make your stay as comfortable as possible, the inside and outside braais are perfect, and the animals were so entertaining, we made two stops at the Spar for carrots for the donkeys, they were so cute! Looking forward to visiting again!

Puik verblyf en uitstekende diens.

Die verblyf was uit die boonste rakke. Met beurtkrag is ons bederf met sonkragligte. Die oulike donkies het dit ook spesiaal gemaak. Dit is beslis die beste verblyf in Calvinia.

Met ons aankoms is ons begroet deur vriendelike donkies en personeel. Die aanwysings was maklik om te volg en die plek is luuks en smaakvol. Tydens beurtktag werk alle ligte en WiFi. Braaiplek op stoep sowel as 'n binnebraai.

Pragtige verblyf met vriendelike donkie verwelkoming.

Karen het ons profesioneel ontvang en ons tot by die verblyf geneem. Volgens die foto's het ek geweet dis pragtig maar ons was regtig so verras. Die slaapkamers met elk hul eie badkamer was so gerieflik en keurig ingerig. Die braaier op die stoep asook die binne die huis is regtig 'n bonus. Wat 'n juweeltjie van 'n plekkie met sy 4 inwonende donkies en 3 volstruise. Volgende keer kuier ek langer.

Beautiful accommodation with friendly donkey welcome.

Karen received us professionally and took us to the accommodation. According to the photos, I knew it was beautiful but we were really so surprised. The bedrooms, each with their own bathroom, were so comfortable and well appointed. The braai on the porch as well as inside the house is really a bonus. What a gem of a place with its 4 resident donkeys and 3 ostriches. Next time I will visit longer.

Oorslaap as deel van ons road trip.

Die fasiliteit het als wat jy nodig het en is baie netjies. Daar is ook voorsiening gemaak vir loadshedding. Die fasiliteit kan 4 volwassenes hanteer en ons was net 2. Koste vir 4 persone is goed. Ons het die donkies en dansende volstruis baie geniet.

Snoesige verblyf ten spyte van ysige weer.

Donkieshoek het al ons verwagtinge oortref. Gas verwarmers en elektriese komberse op die beddens het gesorg vir warm lywe en warm harte. Die feit dat daar altyd krag is tydens beurtkrag, is 'n reuse bonus. Die huis is goed toegerus en silwerskoon. Karin was baie vriendelik en behulpsaam. Ons sal vir seker weer daar wil bly.

Donkieshoek exceeded all our expectations. Gas heaters and electric blankets on the beds ensured warm bodies and warm hearts. The fact that there is always power during load shedding is a huge bonus. The house is well equipped and spotlessly clean. Karin was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely want to stay there again.

Ongelooflik netjies en skoon.

Dit was die grootste bederf van my hele vakansie. Hierdie skoon, moderne, nuwe huisie reg op ons pad. Ek sal julle nooit kan mis ry as ek weer daar verby kom nie. Alles was so skoon en mooi ingerig. Baie dankie Karen vir jou uitstekende diens en bystand.

Oornagverblyf gewees. Baie netjiese, moderne huis, stil area en rustige atmosfeer.

Lekker gebly, rustig op buitewyke van die dorp. Veilig en goeie sekuriteit. Buite kragproppe om karavaan-yskas in te prop. Lekker plaasafmosfeer. Raam vir selfie met die donkies.

'n Pragtige plek. Het dit baie geniet.

Die plek was awesome. Was unhappy met die diens toe ons moet inboek. Eienaar het 'n location voorsien, maar toe ons daar aankom was daar niemand om die sleutel te oorhandig nie. Ons bel haar toe en sy sê ons moet na haar toe ry om due sleutel te kry of ons moet maar 'n halfuur wag, dit nadat ons haar met ons arrival tyd voorsien het.

We call her and she says we have to drive to her to get the key or we just have to wait half an hour, this after we have provided her with our arrival time.

Baie netjies, smaakvol en goed toegerus met vriendelike ontvangs.

Ons het 4 nagte oorgebly tydens die blommeseisoen en heerlik uitgerus. Karen het ons met groot gasvryheid ontvang en het uit haar pad gegaan om ons verblyf aangenaam te maak. Die kothuis is net buite die dorp en baie stil met goeie sekuriteit. Die binnebraai was 'n bonus vir die koue aande. Die eenheid was baie gerieflik met sterk waterdruk vir 'n lekker stort. Ons sal beslis weer daar wil bly.

Very neat, tasteful and well equipped with friendly reception.

We stayed 4 nights during the flower season and had a great rest. Karen received us with great hospitality and went out of her way to make our stay pleasant. The cottage is just outside the town and very quiet with good security. The indoor barbecue was a bonus for the cold evenings. The unit was very comfortable with strong water pressure for a nice shower. We would definitely want to stay there again.

Baie luuks, netjies en skoon!

Twee lieflike ruim slaapkamers elk met koninggrootte-beddens (asook 'n enkelbed). Was dankbaar vir elektriese komberse! Binne- en buitebraai. Was heerlik om die ysige koue binne te braai, met geen rookreuk in die huisie nie. Kombuis baie goed toegerus. Ons was dankbaar vir 'n aansteker aangesien ons vergeet het om een saam te bring! Hoop om binnekort weer daar in te boek.

Vriendelike, wonderlike, netjiese oornag in Calvinia.

Ons het 'n wonderlike oornag geniet in die plaashuis op Donkieshoek na 'n lang dag op die pad. Karen was baie behulpsaam, en het voor ons aankoms al met ons kontak gemaak om seker te maak ons het alles vir ons aand se oornag. Die huis en erf is baie netjies en skoon en ons het baie welkom gevoel. Baie dankie vir julle gasvryheid en vriendelikheid, ons kan beslis Donkieshoek verblyf aan almal voorstel wat Calvinia wil kom besoek. Vriendelike groete tot ons volgende kuier.

Moenie afgeskrik word deur die barre omgewing op 'n plot net buite Calvinia nie. Die huisie is baie mooi ingerig, skoon en gerieflik, met 'n heerlike stoep vir braai. Ons het net een nag oorgebly om pad Kgalagadi toe en sal weer daar bly.
