Die beste wegbreek uit die stad.

Die eenheid is wonderlik toegerus met selfs plastiekkoppies en -bakkies vir die kinders. Die huis is ruim met genoeg spasie vir 2 gesinne met kinders. Ons het baie lekker gekuier en bly! Baie dankie.

The best escape from the city.

The unit is wonderfully equipped with even plastic cups and bowls for the children. The house is spacious with enough space for 2 families with children. We had a great time and are happy! Thank you very much.

Kos vir jou siel.

Ons het so lekker gebly in eenheid 85. Die kombuis is regtig baie goed toegerus wat die lewe vir ons baie maklik gemaak het. Ek moet ook 'n groot kompliment gee dat daar kwaliteit-messe was. Dis 'n groot frustrasie as mens op 'n plek kom en die messe is stomp of dis swak kwaliteit. Die tuin is goed versorg en die eenheid was skoon en netjies met aankoms. Die eenheid is goed geleë en het n pragtige uitsig oor die gronde. Die groot tafel op die stoep was goed benut en ons kon tot laat speletjies speel en kuier tot laat. Daar is ook baie wild om te sien, net jammer die kameelperde het weggekruip toe ons oor Kersnaweek daar was. Die beddens was ook baie gemaklik en ons het baie lekker geslaap. Ons het goed gerus en dis regtig lekker stil. Ons sal definitief weer kom kuier by eenheid 85.

Food for your soul.

We had such a nice stay in unit 85. The kitchen is really very well equipped which made life very easy for us. I also have to give a big compliment that there were quality knives. It's a big frustration when you get to a place and the knives are blunt or of poor quality. The garden is well maintained and the unit was clean and tidy on arrival. The unit is well located and has a beautiful view of the grounds. The large table on the porch was well used and we were able to play games and socialize until late. There is also plenty of wildlife to see, just a shame the giraffes were hiding when we were there over Christmas weekend. The beds were also very comfortable and we slept very well. We rested well and it's really nice and quiet. We will definitely visit unit 85 again.

Dit was waarde vir geld, plek het van alles in die huis wat mens nodig het in jou eie huis.

Dit is 'n baie lekker plek vir 'n wegbreek en om jou kop skoon te kry. Huis het van alles in wat jy sal makeer.

Ideale plek om tot rus te kom, weg van die gejaagde lewe.

Die plek is heerlik ingerig vir 'n kuier weg van die huis. Daar is net ondervloerse verhitting in die kamers, so vat baie hout saam om die kaggels te stook as julle so ’n koue naweek soos ons gevang het.

Ideal place to relax, away from the hectic life.

The place is wonderfully furnished for a visit away from home. There is only underfloor heating in the rooms, so take plenty of wood with you to heat the fireplaces if you have caught a cold weekend like us.

Lekker gerus!

Lekker gerus weg van enige selfoonontvangs. Pragtige uitsig en sonsondergange. Wild loop voor huis verby. Baie gerieflike en goed toegeruste eenheid, hele familie kon lekker bly en saamkuier. Eerste plek wat eetgerei geskik vir klein kinders aanbied. Uitstekend vir 'n wegbreek van die besige gejaag!

Feel free to get away from any cell phone reception. Beautiful view and sunsets. Game passes in front of the house. Very comfortable and well-equipped unit, whole family could stay and spend time together. First place to offer tableware suitable for small children. Excellent for a break from the busy hustle and bustle!

Heerlike familietyd.

Ons het heerlik ontspan as familie by Doornkop. Pragtige uitsigte en wild om te sien. Die eenheid was luuks en het als wat mens nodig het. Dit is die perfekte plek om te ontspan en tyd saam met die familie te geniet. Gaste wat hier kom kuier moet wel bewus wees van ver grondpaaie en dat daar geen winkels naby blyplek is nie.

We had a great time relaxing as a family at Doornkop. Beautiful views and wildlife to see. The unit was luxurious and has everything you need. It is the perfect place to relax and enjoy time with the family. Guests who come to visit here should be aware of long dirt roads and that there are no shops near the accommodation.

Groot luukse huis met alles wat jy nodig het. Goeie kwaliteit linne en breekware. Selfs die yskas is groot genoeg om 8 mense se eetgoed en drinkgoed te hou. Mooiste uitsig. Lieflike plek om die natuur ten volle te kon beleef. Ons sal beslis weer daar gaan oorbly.

Dit was die lieflikste verblyf met beste uitsig!

Dit was 'n plek waarop ek en my gesin dadelik verlief geraak het. Warmte van die huis verwelkom jou! Die omgewing is onbeskryflik. Die diere is orals en my dag is elke dag gemaak met die sien van die kameelperd. Wild is in besondere goeie toestand. Was met 'n seer hart wat ons moes huis toe kom. Die werkers is van uitstaande gehalte.

The workers are of outstanding quality.

Die eenheid is baie netjies en ruim. Die skoonmaker was vriendelik en baie deeglik. Ons kon behoorlik ontspan. Die perdry was beslis vir ons almal 'n hoogtepunt. Ons is vriendelik ontvang en die helpers het ons op ons gemak laat voel. Ek beveel hierdie bestemming met oortuiging aan vir ontspanning en rus.

Ons het vir twee dae hier gebly en was regtig verras met die mooi plek. Die huis was wonderlik met alles wat mens nodig het en die uitsig pragtig. Mens kan stap, hengel, perdry en op 4x4 route gaan. As ons weer in die omgewing is sal ons beslis weer hier bly. Alles was netjies en meer geriewe as wat ons verwag het. Baie lekker hier gebly en sal die sterk aanbeveel.

We spent 2 days here and were really surprised at how beautiful it is. The house is wonderful with everything needed and the view to die for. You can go hiking, angling, horse riding or on a 4x4 ride. Whenever we're in the area again we would definitely stay here. Everything neat and there were more facilities than we expected. Enjoyed the stay and would strongly recommend.
