Paid for the view and it was worth it.

The toilet seat is broken and there were muddy footprints all over the house that we had to mop with a mop hanging on the veranda. The diaphanous single-ply toilet paper was too cheap. But the setting and the view were out of this world!

Two wonderfully relaxing days spent at Dumbe 3.

One never tires of the exquisite view, the silence and the peaceful atmosphere at Dumbe 3. This was our second visit to this cottage and hopefully it will not be our last. Everything one could wish for in a self-catering establishment (time for a new toaster). Interesting, historical information on Retiefs Pass and the Battle of Rietfontein.

Gorgeous views, totally private.

We stayed at Dumbe 1 and it was superb! Absolutely gorgeous views from every angle and very private. You can see a little of Dumbe 2 from the lounge and bedroom windows but otherwise feels like you are out in the wilderness. Amazing! We went on loads of beautiful hikes across the plateau and down into the valley, past cows, buck and loads of birds. Dumbe 1 is the only one without the spa bath but we didn't mind as the shower is lovely with cobbled stone detail. It got misty on one of our days so we got a chance to light up the fire and have a lovely cosy day. We would strongly recommend this place to anyone in need for a proper break from busy city life! We loved it!

Ligging perfek, privaat, ten volle toegerus met asemrowende uitsigte.

Vir 'n rustige wegbreek is Dumbe Cottages perfek vir almal. Ten volle toegerus, baie privaat en goed geleë. Pragtige uitsigte op die berge. Met wind wat suis en die vuur wat brand in die kaggel kan 'n mens nie vir beter vra nie. Ons het in Dumbe nr. 4 gebly en dit was net wat ons nodig gehad het vir 'n romantiese naweek weg. Die spa-bad met berg-uitsigte was fantasties. Die rustigheid op die dek nog beter. Ons sal gerus weer Dumbe besoek. Dit is 'n moet vir enige iemand wat wil wegbreek van die gejaagde lewe van die stad.

Ideale, romantiese wegbreek, veral in die winter. Uitstekend toegerus met alles wat nodig is, insluitend kaggel en borrelbad. Net meer as 3 ure se ry van Centurion om in 'n ander wêreld te wees. Ons sal beslis weer teruggaan!

Stukkie goud weggesteek in die berge.

Verblyf uit die boonste rakke! Netjiese en snoesige kliphuis met 'n kaggelvuur en borrelbad vir die perfekte atmosfeer. Die eenheid het alles wat jy nodig het. Privaatheid, kalmte en rustigheid is wat jy hier sal vind. Asemrowende uitsig van die berge met 'n staproete wat 'n stukkie geskiedenis van die area insluit. Sal beslis weer Dumbe besoek! My aanbeveling is egter om jou pad soontoe aan te durf met 'n 4x4!

The ideal "getting away from it all".

A return visit to Dumbe Cottages because we love the seclusion, peace and absolute silence. The Retief Pass and other 4x4 tracks were an adventure, especially as most of it was seriously overgrown compared to the previous visit. Saw a huge puffadder just in time! There were vehicles and searchlights briefly flashing at night which made us uneasy, although it was not close to us. The motion detector spotlight on the veranda provided excellent peace of mind. Will definitely visit again!

Die plekkie het die mooiste uitsig vanaf jou stoepie wat ek nog ooit gesien het.

Die plekkie is rêrig die mooiste uitsig wat ek nog ooit gesien het. Omdat dit op die berg geleë is, kon ons glad nie op die stoepie braai nie - maar met die wind wat gewaai het was dit heerlik koel in die plek terwyl die omgewing uitsonderlike warm was.

Wonderful, calm, food for the soul.

We were in Dumbe no 4. It was lovely. The tranquillity enfolds you the moment you get out of the car. It's so beautiful and very private. The wind was a bit rough, could not enjoy the balcony from 14h00. But the sunrise early in the morning makes everything worthwhile. We will definitely go back again.

Ons was in Dumbe no 4. dit was heerlik. Die rustigheid omvou jou die oomblik as jy uit die kar klim. Dis so pragtig en baie privaat. Die wind was bietjie rof, kon nie die balkon vanaf 14h00 geniet nie. Maar die sonsopkoms vroeg in die oggend maak alles die moeite werd. Ons sal beslis weer teruggaan.

Van die bespreking tot ons daar kom en weer terug, was net seepglad. Vat net genoeg warm klere saam. Dis altyd koud of koel daarbo. En vat ordentlike hout saam om te gaan brand in die kaggel. Hulle hout brand baie gou uit al is daar baie. Sal ek weer gaan? Vir seker! En liewer nie met 'n sedan-motor nie.

Ongelooflike plekkie met niks en niemand wat pla.

Ons was 2 dae daar en dit het meestal gereën. Dit sal gewoonlik 'n hengse teleurstelling wees, maar die plek is te mooi om te verlaat. Die kamer is ruim en luuks, en vir dié wat hulle 4x4 so bietjie wil toets, is dit perfek. Ons het die Normandienpas om gery om daar te draai wat ek ook kan aanbeveel. Let wel, goeie grondvryhoogte is 'n vereiste.

The epitomous getting-away-from-it-all.

We saw these cottages many years ago when we visited the Kaalvoetvrou monument and promised ourselves that one day we will stay over. That day finally arrived, and it was well worth it in all aspects. It is quiet - really quiet - peaceful, with stunning views of the valley and the Berg to the west. Raptors and swifts fly past at eye-level and the thrush feeds its chicks beneath the eaves of the verandah. The cottage is well-equipped and very roomy. The bathroom (in my opinion always the crucial indicator) was clean with lots of space, and a pleasure to use. We spent hours sitting outside staring in the distance - what better way to relax! No TV, what a pleasure. Definitely a return destination.

Persoonlike diens van Debbie het die kersie op die koek gesit met haar persoonlike belangstelling. Sal Dumbe aanbeveel aan enige person wat rustigheid stilte en kalmte wil ervaar.

Tweede keer en werklik onbeskryflik mooi en kalmerend. Mens ontspan totally.

Was onvergeetlik en No 4 was eenkant en baie lekker privaat en die parkering is 'n uitdaging. Skoonmakers verstaan mens net nie lekker nie want 1ste dag vir hul gesê ons sal self skoonmaak want dis ons natuur om dit te doen maar was elke oggend vroeg verras met hul voor die deur terwyl mens wil lê en die uitsig bewonder en rustig wees. Verder was daar 'n verstommende 60/70km wind die hele 5 dae daar wat buite sit ongemaklik gemaak het, maar die kaggel was absoluut 'n wenner. Baie dankie vir die netheid en gerief. Sal beslis binnekort weer besoek.

Knus gehug, asemrowende uitsig.

Met aankoms is ons gegroet met die uitsig van die vallei, die huisie was netjies en skattig. Ongelukkig het die wind in die agtermiddag ons verwaai en ter wille van veiligheid ons braaiplanne van stapel gestuur. Ons het maar die kaggel gestook en in die knetterende vuur se lig die ween-lied van die wind aangehoor. Dit is 'n verwelkomende saligheid wat stadsjapies sal welkom heet. Die nuwe dag was nog versteek onder die berg se mis-kombers toe ons die eerste koppie troos geniet, saam met die spookagtige figure van vee en wild. Ons was vroeg dag Clarens toe en in die agtermiddag met ons terugkoms het die wind sy refrein vertoog. Ons het ten midde van die weer, voor die kaggel vir mekaar die die voorsiende geskiedenis boekie voorgelees. Algeheel die omgewing, die geskiedenis, die stilte, en die uitsig is voorwaar ‘n een van daai juwele wat jy moet ervaar om te kan waardeer. Geen resensie of foto sal die berggehug reg aan doen nie.

Afgelegen bergnest met uitzicht, op de grens tussen de Vrijstaat en Natal.

We verbleven in cottage 1 (van de 5). Dit was het hoogstgelegen huisje. De natuur om je is verbluffend en op het terras zit je er helemaal middenin. De poetsdienst is elke dag gekomen om alles grondig op te ruimen en schoon te maken. Het grondpad naar de Dumbe cottages is 14 kilometer lang en je vindt het het beste door de wegwijzers naar het Kaalvoet vrou-monument te volgen. We hebben er elke keer zo'n half uur op gereden, dus verwacht je aan tijdverlies. Langs de andere kant is het pad wel een prachtige route door de bergen, waarop je je elke keer kunt vergapen aan het landschap, bokken, struisvogels en we zagen zelfs een secretarisvogel. Ondanks het tijdrovende pad liggen de Dumbe cottages tactisch goed tussen de noordelijke drakensbergen aan de ene kant en het Golden Gate Nationale Park en Clarens aan de andere kant. Het ontbreken van wifi voelde wel als een gemis.

A very relaxed break away.

Beautiful country side with breathtaking views. The cottage is very comfortable and is kept clean. If you need to get away from the rushed city life, this is the place to go. I would have liked to be met by someone on arrival and given a map and a list of possible activities that could be done. Although very private, the cleaners did walk in on us during a morning bath which was a little embarrassing. I liked the open plan bath, but a more private toilet would be nice.

Rustig en naby die natuur.

Ek het op 'n vorige keer daar gebly en dit was heerlik. Ek het Dumbe gekies vir die viering van ons 35ste huweliksherdenking a.g.v. die Jacuzzi/bad, met die mooi uitsig. Met bespreking was geoorgedra dat Dumbe self besluit waar jy bly, ek het dit aanvaar, want in die foto's op die website het elke eenheid 'n Jacuzzi/bad. Met ons aankoms, was ons baie teleurgesteld, ons 'n eenheid gekry sonder 'n Jacuzzi/bad. Ek voel hulle mislei 'n mens doelbewus anders sal hulle sukkel om daardie eenheid uit te verhuur. Ek sal almal waarsku teen die misleiding. Die oggend met vertrektyd het die skoonmakers al 09:20 opgedaag en ons het tyd tot 10:00 voor dit vertrektyd is, baie onprofessioneel en onaangenaam.

Dumbe Cottages's response

Aangesien alle gaste vir ons ewe belangrik is, en ons nie sekere gaste bo ander bevoordeel nie, laat ons nie toe dat gaste 'n chalet kies nie. Dit is nie regverdig teenoor ander gaste nie. 1 Van ons eenhede het 'n stort en die ander 4 het baddens. Ek wil ook net hierdie gas reghelp, dat hierdie chalet waarna verwys word, elke naweek en gedurende die week, vol bespreek is, en dus nie nodig is om gaste te mislei nie. Die pragtige natuur en uitsig, is vanaf die deck en binnekant van elke chalet, duidelik sigbaar, nie net vanuit die bad nie.

Asemrowend mooi.

Die verblyf is ontsettend netjies, skoon en veilig. Eenheid is ten volle toegerus. Natuur is onbeskryflik mooi en word hoogs aanbeveel as jy rus vir jou siel en gemoed nodig het. Neem tydskrifte of "bordspeletjies" saam, want buiten die staproetes en besienswaardighede gaan jy gou verveeld raak indien jy langer as 2 nagte bly. Ons het dit ongelooflik geniet en het goed uitgerus teruggegaan huis toe. Sal beslis weer gaan - wil graag teruggaan in somer maande, want ek kan nie eers dink hoe die natuurskoon dan moet wees nie.

Breathtaking.

Incredible views and nice and private. Units are well equipped and the cleaners were very helpful. Buy a lot of wood in winter and prepare the fireplace for a romantic weekend. If you are cycling, maybe Solly (owner) will show you his mountain bike trails, breathtaking. Perfect for 2 people who want to break away ... you'd wish you could stay longer.

Ongelooflike uitsig en lekker privaat. Eenhede is goed toegerus en die skoonmakers was baie behulpsaam. Koop gerus baie hout aan in die winter en stook die kaggel vir 'n romantiese naweek. Indien jy fietsry, skimp dalk by Solly (eienaar) om jou sy bergfiets-roetes te gaan wys, asemrowend. Perfek vir 2 mense wat wil wegbreek ... jy gaan wens jy kon langer bly.

Total freedom for the body and the soul.

This unit is serviced every day and the fireplace is readied for the evening. Every unit is totally private. The view of the valley is indescribably beautiful. One simply can't get enough of it. I also like the history of the estate itself. I enjoyed the 4x4-route. Just know that the GPS wants to take you to the back if you're driving from Bergville and that this route should be avoided. If you like silence and isolation, stay here.

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

Totale vryheid van gees en liggaam.

Die eenheid word elke dag gediens en die kaggel gepak vir vanaand. Elke eenheid is totaal privaat. Die uitsig oor die vallei daar onder is onbeskryflik mooi. 'n Mens kry nie genoeg daarvan nie. Ek het ook gehou van die geskiedenis wat gekoppel word aan die grond self. Ek het ook dan die 4x4-roete gedoen en dit baie geniet. Wees net bedag dat jou GPS jou by die agterkant wil laat inkom as jy van Bergville af kom en die roete moet eerder nie gevolg word nie. As jy van stilte en afsondering hou kom bly gerus hier.

Rus vir die siel.

'n Pragtige stuk grondpad lei jou dieper die berg in tot jy alleen teen 'n berghang stop en daar net 'n kothuis en oop vallei voor jou lê. Niemand en niks anders is in sig nie en daar kan mens heeltemal ontspan. Die kothuis is baie goed ingerig en in my vrou se woorde "ek het my droomhuis gekry". Die uitsig reg rondom is prentjiemooi en die kaggel skep 'n romantiese atmosfeer saam net die olielampe. 'n Hoekbad met waterstrale is die perfekte afronding tot die dag. Gaan gerus en weet jy sal 'n beter mens terugkeer.

A piece of heaven on earth.

The well located sandstone houses each have a wonderful view of the blue Drakensberg in the distance. A variety of wildflowers and black cattle that grazes around the Retief pass ensured hours of entertainment. The house is well equipped and the staff are friendly. Three days' rest here feels like three weeks! Dumbe Cottages is number 1 on my getaway list.

'n Stukkie hemel op aarde!

Die goed geplaasde sandsteenhuisies gee elkeen 'n wonderlike uitsig tot teen die blou Drakensberge in die verte. 'n Verskeidenheid veldblomme en swart beeste wat rondom die Retiefpas wei het ons ure se vermaak verskaf. Die huisies is goed toegerus en die personeel vriendelik. Drie dae se rus hier voel soos drie weke! Dumbe Cottages is no. 1 op my wegbreeklysie.

What an experience!

Our accommodation was unbelievable and the tranquillity with the view was beautiful. What made it more special was the history of the area and Piet Retief. The only thing that I would've liked different is the shower in chalet 1 and not a corner bath like chalet 2, 3 and 4. But is was good value for money.

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

Was 'n besonderse ervaring.

Ons verblyf was ongelooflik en die rustigheid met die uitsigte was baie mooi, wat dit nog meer spesiaal gemaak het was die geskiedenis in die omgewing te doen met Piet Retief. Al wat ek anders sou wou gehad het is chalet 1 het 'n stort en nie 'n hoekbad met uitsigte soos chalet 2, 3 en 4 nie,maar dit was goeie waarde vir ons geld.

Awesome!

It was extraordinary! Only suggestion is a proper braai, not on the deck but somewhere where you can make a nice fire. Other than that, it was beautiful, clean and neat, and the cleaning ladies was lovely. We had a nice walk and saw the most beautiful wild flowers and took a lot of photos. Also, thanks to Zenobia and LekkeSlaap for excellent correspondence. The LekkeSlaap-team is the best.

Awesome!

Alles wat ons op die vorige verwysings gelees het, is waar en om dit self te kon beleef was iets besonders! Enigste iets wat ons sou voorstel is 'n behoorlike braai, nie op die dek nie, maar onder waar mens lekker kan vuurmaak. Verder was dit asemrowend mooi, skoon en netjies en die dames wat skoonmaak is dierbaar! Lekker gestap en die mooiste veldblommetjies gesien en afgeneem sonder ophou. Dankie ook Zenobia en LekkeSlaap omdat julle die heeltyd kontak hou na die bespreking tot op die dag van ons aankoms. Die LekkeSlaap-span is die beste!

Salig, rustig met pragtige uitsig.

Dumbe se verblyf was salig en rustig. Die stilte sielsverrykend en die uitsig asemrowend wat Kersfees 2016 baie spesiaal gemaak het. So lekker om te kon wegbreek uit die stad se geraas en die bure se kermende brakke wat treur oor hulle eienaars wat oor Kerstyd op vakansie is. Dit was ook 'n belewenis om die Retiefpas te kon uitry. Daarvoor het jy 'n 4x4 voertuig nodig, maar bly weg wanneer die pas nat is. Ons sal Dumbe graag weer wil besoek.

Perfect for a quiet weekend away and a thorough digital detox.

The tranquility and breathtaking views, fireplace, braai, jacuzzi, gas stove, privacy and even the occasional inquisitive cow herd made for an overall atmosphere that is without a doubt one of the best we've experienced in our travels. There is a great hike walking distance from the Cottage. It is the same trail used by the Bush & Berg MTB event. We even managed to spot a secretary bird prancing about below. Take with a book, a hat & binoculars! Absolutely lovely place, highly recommend it.

Peace and quiet in a wonderful nature setting.

We had a great stay. The cottage is very pretty and clean. Would have liked personal contact with the owner/host - only received a few short messages. Water of shower never gets warmer than mild. A map of restaurants and hiking trails in the area would have been welcome.

Rus en vrede in wonderlike natuurskoon.

Ons het baie lekker gebly. Die cottage is baie mooi en skoon. Sou persoonlik kontak met die eienaar/gasheer waardeer het - net 'n paar kort SMS boodskappe gekry. Stortwater word nooit warmer as lou nie. 'n Kaart van die omgewing se restaurante en staproetes sal welkom wees.

Asemrowend mooi. Hemel op die berg.

Vir seker een van die beste plekke om rus vir jou siel te vind. Asemrowende uitsig oor die berge, volledig toegerus vir gemak. As hemel aarde toe moes kom en dit self op die berg bevind, is Dumbe die plek waar dit neergeset is. Die stilte, natuurlewe en omgewing doen iets aan 'n mens, dit verander 'n mens en gee jou nuwe lewe en ontspanning soos niks vantevore. Ons beveel Dumbe Cottages hoogs aan en sal vir seker weer daarheen keer as die lewe in die stad te veel raak.

Most beautiful view, very tidy, and romantic - it was amazing!

The place was beautiful and peaceful, stunning view. Very romantic, perfect place for couples. So quiet, you get proper rest. Interior was very tidy and clean. It was the perfect place for our first holiday together. Will definitely go back!

Pragtigste view, baie netjies en romantiese verbyf - was amazing!

Die plek was baie mooi en rustig, uitsig is stunning. Baie romanties en die perfekte plek vir paartjies. Dit is so lekker stil en jy rus behoorlik uit. Plek binne is mooi netjies en skoon. Dit was die beste plek vir ons eerste vakansie saam. Sal regtig weer terug gaan soontoe!

Wonderfully peaceful and quiet.

We left the 2 toddlers with grandpa and got away for 2 days. The nature and silence was wonderful. The cottage is well equipped with everything you might need. Will definitely recommend it to people looking for rest for their soul. We are going to make this an annual thing!

Wonderlik rustig en stil.

Ons het ons 2 kleuters by oupa gelos en vir 2 dae weggebreek. Die natuur en stilte was wonderlik. Die cottage was goed toegerus met alles wat ons nodig gekry het. Sal beslis aanbeveel vir mense wat sielsrus nodig het. Ons gaan dit 'n jaarlikse instelling maak!

Lovely destination where you can rest.

A lovely place with a fireplace and it's fully equipped. The view from the unit is beautiful and the lovely bath was a bonus. Take a scenic walk on the farm and visit the Barefoot Woman Statue. It's also not far from the Royal Natal Drakensburg Park if you want to clamber through the mountains. Will visit again and can highly recommend them.

Heerlike bestemming waar jy kan rus.

'n Lieflike plek met 'n kaggel en ten volle toegerus. Die uitsig vanuit die eenheid is prentjiemooi en die heerlike bad 'n bonus. Kan heerlik op die plaas stap en die kaalvoetvrou-monument besoek. Ook nie ver van Royal Natal Drakensberg Park as jy in die berge wil gaan klouter nie. Sal weer besoek en aanbeveel.

Asemrowende uitsig in 'n heerlike huisie.

Ongelooflike en rustige omgewing met jou eie private uitsig. Baie goeie toegeruste huisie waarin mens die natuur kan geniet. Eienaars is baie behulpsaam en vriendelik. Gaan vir seker weer kom!

We celebrated our anniversary here.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Dumbe. It is a romantic getaway spot for couples. We could relax and get some real rest. You feel one with nature. I can recommend Dumbe to any couple who wants to get away from the rat race.

Ons het ons huweliksherdenking daar gevier.

Ek en my man het ons huweliksherdenking by Dumbe gaan vier. Dit is 'n romantiese wegbreekplek vir paartjies. Ons het ontspan en volkome uitgerus. Jy voel eens met die natuur. Sal Dumbe vir enige paartjie aanbeveel wat wil wegkom van die stad se geraas.

Die rustigste vakansie in 'n lang tyd. Vars lug, asemrowende uitsigte en voeding vir die siel.

Vreeslik baie dankie aan LekkeSlaap.co.za sowel as Dumbe Cottages vir 'n absolute wonderlike ervaring. Voeding vir die siel. Dit voel of jy op die wêreld se rand sit. Absoluut asemrowend. Ons sal definitief weer Dumbe toe gaan en het dit alreeds aan 'n paar vriende en familie voorgestel. Volgende keer gaan ons vir ten minste 5 dae. Hier kan 'n mens voorwaar van die stadslewe ontsnap. Die grondpad is die moeite werd. Wonderlike ervaring van bespreking met Anjuli tot die dames wat ons cottage skoongemaak het. Fantasties!
