Karooplaas uit die boonste rakke.

Netjies en gerieflik ingerig, teen 'n fantastiese berg-agtergrond. Heeltemal veilig en rustig. Die gasheer was besonder hulpvaardig en het my verlore items by my terugbesorg. Ek is baie dankbaar! Dis op die Rantepad, die alternatiewe roete tussen Sutherland en Fraserburg - 'n wonderlike berg-landskap. Iets besonders. Sal beslis weer kom kuier! Die WiFi is die sterkste by die windpomp, maar dit was so 'n "Karoo-ervaring" dat ons dit nogal geniet het!

Onvergeetbare naweek. Kosbare mense van die Karoo.

Ons is so dankbaar dat ons besluit het om op hierdie plaas buite die dorp te bly vir die naweek van 'n troue in Fraserburg. Ongelooflike mooi area en gasvryheid van die mense hier. Doen jouself die guns en bly vir 'n dag of twee meer as beplan en geniet die Karoo op sy beste. Ek hoop om Pieter hulle en veral sy pa, Oom Piet gou weer te sien.

Unforgettable weekend. Precious people of the Karoo.

We are so thankful that we decided to stay at this farm out of town for the weekend of a wedding in Fraserburgh. Unbelievably beautiful area and hospitality of the people here. Do yourself a favor and stay for a day or two more than planned and enjoy the Karoo at its best. I hope to see Pieter them and especially his father, Oom Piet again soon.

Rustige en pragtige omgewing. Karoogasvryheid op sy beste!

Net 'n nota, vanuit die dorp is dit 30 km-grondpad tot op die plaas. Daar is geen selfoonsein vanaf die dorp tot by die plaas. Beperkte WiFi in die plaashuis self.

Peaceful and beautiful surroundings. Karoo hospitality at its best!

Just a note, from the town it is a 30 km dirt road to the farm. There is no cell phone signal from the town to the farm. Limited WiFi in the farmhouse itself.

Rustige kuier in die middel van die groot Karoo. As jy hou van stap en koppies klim is hierdie die ideaale plek vir jou basis.

Troeteldier vriendelik en daar is 'n swembad/dam vir die somer en 'n pragtige ou Aga in die winter wat Pieter met graagte vir jou sal aansteek. Die huisie is ten volle toegerus.

Gasvrye Karoo wegbreek

Karoo huis met baie dik mure, mooi uitsig oor klein vallei en braaiplek in bosskerm. Interessante stories en inligting oor die omgewing by Pieter gehoor. Hier maak 'n mens maklik vriende.

Volkome ontsnapping van die wêreld. Wêreld van nederigheid.

Ons het lekker gebly by Eselfontein. Daar is 'n storie hier wat vertel moet word. Van 'n stil sterkte en liefde vir die grond. Van die natuur wat jou laat verwonder laat sit in 'n plaaswerf en sterre kyk as jy die nuwe dekade in wag. Wat ook vir my lekker was, was die klein bederf wat daar vir jou wag as jy moeg daar aankom. Heerlike filter koffie, vars brood rolletjies, plaas melk en tuisgemaakte konfyt. Die vreemdste is die hoenders wat hoog in die boom slaap en jou wekker is om op te staan. Die beste is egter om met Pieter te kon gesels en sy wêreld waarvoor hy lief is te kon deel vir tydjie.

Escape from the world. World of humility.

We enjoyed our stay at Eselfontein. There is a story here that needs to be told. Of a quiet strength and love for the ground. From the nature that makes you marvel in a farmyard and watch the stars as you wait for the new decade. What was also nice for me was the little treat that awaits you when you arrive there. Delicious filter coffee, fresh bread rolls, farm milk and homemade jam. The strangest thing is the chickens that sleep high in the tree and are your alarm clock to get up. However, it is best to talk to Pieter and share his world that he loves for a while.

Plattelandse gasvryheid, netjiese plaashuis met 'n baie mooi uitsig.

Wonderlike verblyf in 'n baie mooi deel van die Karoo. Baie netjiese en goed toegeruste plaashuis met 'n groot kombuistafel vir lekker lang kuiers. Wens ons kon langer bly.

Beleef die Karoo-gasvryheid op sy beste.

Die plaas huis is pragtig opgepas, skoon en netjies. Maresa se broodrolletjies die eerste aand was 'n treffer! Dis 'n werkende plaas, met skape, lammetjies, swembad en lekker geselsies. Die sundowners op spitskop was 'n belewenis. Baie dankie vir 'n heerlike Karoo-wegbreeknaweek. Sien julle weer binnekort.

Experience Karoo hospitality at its best.

The farm house is beautifully looked after, clean and tidy. Maresa's bread rolls the first night were a hit! It's a working farm, with sheep, lambs, swimming pool and nice chats. The sundowners at peak time were an experience. Thank you very much for a wonderful Karoo getaway weekend. See you again soon.

Presies wat ons wou hê.

Ons het net oornag, maar Pieter het moeite gedoen sodat ons kon sien hoe word die skape "gedous" die volgende oggend. Lekker warm voor die koolstoof gesit en speletjies speel met 'n bottel rooiwyn. Beveel dit sterk aan.

Exactly what we wanted.

We only spent the night, but Pieter made an effort so that we could see how the sheep were "showered" the next morning. Nice and warm sitting in front of the coal stove and playing games with a bottle of red wine. Highly recommend it.

Kos vir ons siel.

Net die plek om al die bekommernisse van die lewe vir 'n paar dae te vergeet en weer energie uit die pragtige natuur te kry. Pieter het die AGA lekker warm gehou. Die beskuit en warm broodjies met konfyt was 'n lekker bederf. Die staproetes op die plaas was onvergeetlik.
