Wonderfully relaxing.

The location was both a major issue and at the same time a big asset of the place. Doornkraal Heaven is tucked within a working farm in the middle of the hills. Anene is a very good host. Although there were a few times she was not able to attend to my small queries, she is a very good host. The house and the area are very good. Guests, especially those coming from the city or anyone not familiar with farm settings and location, must be given prior notice that to get to the place, a 4x4 vehicle is highly recommended. Sedan cars can be used, but due to the terrain, they should expect an off-road drive for around 20 to 30 minutes from the main road. Although, as we drove on several times, it became easier and easier as you get to know the road and what to avoid on the road. Apart from this, all is well. We greatly appreciate the fresh milk that we were graciously given and the firewood that they provide. We all enjoyed and appreciated the night sky. Far from light pollution in the city, the night sky was spectacular and breathtaking. The house is well-equipped and spacious. We will definitely be back and will bring the entire family with us. The house is big enough to share with a big family.

Very enjoyable.

We only stayed over one night on route, but would have loved to spend a few days there. Remote, working farm, kids loved it. Big house and well equipped, clean and comfortable.

Rustig in 'n pragtige omgewing.

Die huis was ruim, gerieflik en skoon. Die plaasgeluide was welkom, koeie, papegaaie, honde en trekkers het 'n wonderlike atmosfeer geskep.

Peaceful in a beautiful setting.

The house was spacious, comfortable and clean. The farm sounds were welcome, cows, parrots, dogs and tractors created a wonderful atmosphere.

Beste plaas kuier nog!

Anene en Paul was voorwaar die beste. Alles was silwerskoon, netjies en presies wat ons nodig gehad het. As jy rus vir jou siel wil hê, plaas atmosfeer en geluide wil hoor en beleef gaan kuier op Doornkraal. Die lekker gesels kom sommer passella en spontaan. Ons kom weer kuier.

Best farm visit yet!

Anene and Paul were truly the best. Everything was spotless, tidy and exactly what we needed. If you want rest for your soul, want to hear and experience local atmosphere and sounds, visit Doornkraal. The nice conversation just happens passella and spontaneously. We will visit again.

Fantastic! The surroundings are breathtaking.

Thank you to Anene and Paul Steyn for a fantastic stay! I love your farm. We experienced how your beautiful Guernsey cows were milked. And we loved the little piglets. The location is beautiful! We stayed for 9 nights and will definitely be back.

Idyllic countryside. Amazing hosts and superb farmhouse accommodation.

Nine of us stayed over at Doornkraal as one of our stops on a 4 day cycle tour. Anene and Paul went out of their way to ensure that we were comfortable and enjoying our stay. From especially arranging for the viewing of the third Lions test, the fresh milk delivered twice daily to assisting us with their local knowledge in planning our route for the next day, it was great. The accommodation is ample and comfortable. The countryside is amazing together with the sights and sounds of a working farm. We will definitely be returning to Doornkraal in the future.

Al nadeel is dat was- en toiletgeriewe met ander mense gedeel moet word. Dit is ongerieflik.

Sien sterre.

The downside is that washing and toilet facilities have to be shared with other people. It is inconvenient.
