It is a special place. Not to be missed.

This is more than just a nice cottage. This is special with so much love and character put into the cottage and surrounding gardens. There are beautiful walkways in the garden with special little seating places hidden away. Little bits of art all over the place to enjoy and make one feel special. The walks in the forest are so enjoyable with the quietness and undisturbed natural surroundings. You have to visit this place to appreciate the beauty and effort put into it. It is really something else. We came away with only good thoughts. Please don't forget the hosts. Always willing to do anything you may need and very interesting explanations of the property.

Dit was absoluut rustig, mens kan jou siel verloor. Alles is lekker uiteengesit en enigiets wat jy sal nodig hê, is daar.

Die eienaars is ingestel op jou as besoeker. Dit is skoon, rustig, veilig en net absoluut die moeite werd vir 'n goeie uit rus. Jy kan stap in hul pragtige tuin en voel jy is sommer in die bos, maar daar is ook nabygeleë roetes om te stap in die bos. Absoluut pragtig!

It was absolutely peaceful, you could lose your soul. Everything is nicely laid out and anything you will need is there.

The owners are focused on you as a visitor. It is clean, quiet, safe and just absolutely worth it for a good rest. You can walk in their beautiful garden and feel like you are in the woods, but there are also nearby trails for walking in the woods. Absolutely beautiful!

Heerlike rusplek weg van die lewe se druk.

Hierdie is 'n besondere plekkie, weg van die stadsgewoel. Brett en Adela het 'n ideale wegbreek plek geskep. Dis duidelik dat heelwat liefde en harde werk hier ingesit is. Ons het die verblyf baie geniet en was hartlik ontvang. Ons kan Elephant Rest ten sterkste aanbeveel.

Die beste ontdekking in 'n lang tyd.

Wat 'n wonderlike, wonderlike plekkie. Brett en Adela sien nie die kleinste detail oor om jou verblyf so aangenaam as moontlik te maak nie. Die huisie is 'n voorbeeld van ware vakmanskap en bevat eenvoudig alles wat mens dalk nodig mag kry. Jy het letterlik net klere en kos nodig. Ons het die omgewing heerlik verken op ons fietse en lekker afgekoel in die groot dam. Die stilte, die voëls, die bos. Mens gaan regtig baie wyd moet soek vir beter.

The best discovery in a long time.

What a wonderful, wonderful place. Brett and Adela do not overlook the smallest detail to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The cottage is an example of true craftsmanship and simply contains everything one might need. You literally only need clothes and food. We had a great time exploring the area on our bikes and cooled off in the large pond. The silence, the birds, the forest. One really has to look far and wide for better.

Peace and tranquility

It was my first time in Rheenendal, and how surprised I was to find such a gem. The cabin is exactly like the description and photos. It is very quiet and peaceful. The owner and his wife were very friendly and accommodating. And I absolutely loved the kitchen area. What a lovely way to still enjoy the comforts and enjoy nature. I will definitely recommend a stay at the Cabin and Cottage.
