Puik verblyf.

Pragtige, ou huis. Ruim en goed toegerus. Stapafstand vanaf winkels ens. Kort egter WiFi eerder as die TV in my mening, aangesien dit help met roetebeplanning. Jude is 'n hands-on gasvrou.

Ons het heerlik gebly in Gecko Cottages!

Gecko Cottages is baie goed geleë, en alles is stapafstand. Al die moontlike geriewe om 'n mens se verblyf gerieflik en aangenaam te maak is beskikbaar. Brian en sy vrou was vriendelik en behulpsaam en het goeie advies gegee oor wat ons moet sien en doen in die omgewing. Lieflike kaggel het die koue buite gehou, en ons gesin het tuis gevoel, dit was 'n home away from home ervaring!

Ek en my vrou het 'n naweek daar deurgebring met twee bejaarde dames in die tweede kamer.

Die tweede kamer is kleiner met min hangspasie. Dit het aparte toegang van buite, nie van binne die huis nie. Dit is meer geskik vir laerskool/tienerkinders as volwassenes. Die res van die huis is baie aangenaam, ruim en mooi gemeubeleer. Ons het reg agter die Rude Chef gewoon en heerlik daar geëet. Daar is slegs 'n Weber braai.

Translate to English.

My wife and I spent a weekend there with two elderly ladies in the second room.

The second room is smaller with little hanging space. It has separate access from outside, not from inside the house. It is more suitable for primary school/teenage children than adults. The rest of the house is very pleasant, spacious and nicely furnished. We lived right behind the Rude Chef and had a great meal there. There is only a Weber braai.

'n Baie sentraal geleë huisie met alles wat jy nodig het.

Die huisie is baie smaakvol gemeubileer met alles wat nodig is om 'n baie gemaklike verblyf te verseker. Die gashere het uit hul pad gegaan om seker te maak ons was gemaklik en was baie behulpsaam. Let wel dat die ander huisie van Gecko ook op dieselfde perseel is en dat jy die plaspoel moet deel. Privaatheid kan dus 'n probleem wees vir gaste.

We enjoyed our stay very much and the house was very comfortable generally and well located to tour the village on foot.

The bathrooms could be made more user friendly perhaps by the addition of towel rails, clothes hooks and a shelf for toiletries. The children’s room was a little isolated for very young children.

Baie spasie, baie mooi.

Lots of space, very nice.

Baie rustig met 'n besonderse atmosfeer.

Die eienaar Bryan het die oggend van ons aankoms 'n sms aan ons gestuur en gevra dat ons hom min of meer 'n tyd kan gee van wanneer ons sal aankom. Ons het dit gedoen en met ons aankoms was hy daar om ons persoonlik te ontvang. Die ontvangs was baie aangenaam en het hy die indruk geskep dat hy sy gaste tuis en op hulle gemak wil laat voel. Die chalet is baie goed toegerus as jy jou eie aandete en ontbyt wil voorberei. Vir ons was toe ons eie gelaat en kon ons heerlik ontspan in die klein swembadjie voordat ons 'n heerlike aandete by die hotel net oorkant die straat geniet het. Sal beslis Gecko aanbeveel.

Very peaceful with a special atmosphere.

The owner Bryan texted us the morning of our arrival and asked if we could give him an approximate time of when we would arrive. We did and upon our arrival he was there to receive us personally. The reception was very pleasant and he created the impression that he wants to make his guests feel at home and at ease. The chalet is very well equipped if you want to prepare your own dinner and breakfast. We were then left to our own devices and were able to relax wonderfully in the small pool before enjoying a delicious dinner at the hotel just across the street. Would definitely recommend Gecko.

Heerlike verblyf met uitstekende diens!

Toe ons op pad was moes ons net min of meer laat weet hoe laat ons daar sou wees sodat Bryan & June ons kon ontmoet en sleutels bring. Hulle was so gaaf van die begin tot einde en niks is vir hulle te veel moeite nie. Die huisie is so lekker skoon en word voorsien van koffie, tee en suiker. Die klein swembad is heerlik vir 'n afkoel na 'n warm dag so ook die aircon in die huisie. Sal beslis vir enige iemand aanbeveel wat deur Prins Albert reis. Die plekkie is sentraal in die dorp maar effens "weggesteek" so dit voel nie asof jy in die dorp is nie.

Great stay with excellent service!

When we were on our way we just had to let them know roughly what time we would be there so that Bryan & June could meet us and bring keys. They were so nice from start to finish and nothing is too much trouble for them. The cottage is so nice and clean and is provided with coffee, tea and sugar. The small swimming pool is great for cooling down after a hot day, as is the aircon in the house. Would definitely recommend to anyone traveling through Prince Albert. The place is central in town but slightly "hidden" so it doesn't feel like you're in town.

Heerlik, gerieflik, skoon en netjies.

Brayn is 'n super host. Alles is skoon, netjies en in die middel van die dorp. Binne loopafstand van alles. Heerlike swembad en braaigeriewe. Ideale oorslaap plek!

Dit was heerlik en ons wil weer gaan!

Gecko Cottages (2) is in die hart van die dorp geleë, agter besighede in die hoofstraat. Ons het verwag dat geraas dalk 'n probleem sou wees, maar was aangenaam verras oor die rustigheid en stilte. Geen probleem met parkering nie en lieflike ruim wooneenhede. Die "splash pool" het heerlike verligting gebring. Beide kothuise was uitstekend toegerus. Die groot stoepe en braaigeriewe was voorwaar 'n pluspunt. Die kothuis word nie daagliks gediens nie, maar dit was nie vir ons 'n probleem nie. Ons het net die badkamer (van enkel kothuis) effe ongerieflik gevind - dit is klein en geen rakkies of oppervlaktes waarop mens jou kosmetiese ware kan plaas nie. Die groter kothuis (2 slaapkamer) is beter toegerus - selfs met skottelgoedwasser en wasmasjien. Albei het kaggels, lugverkoeling en dakwaaiers wat beslis nodig is vir Prins Albert. 'n Wassery langs die ingang vir diegene wat nie self wasgoed wil was nie. Die gasheer en gasvrou is besonder vriendelik en hulpvaardig.

It was delicious and we want to go again!

Gecko Cottages (2) are located in the heart of the town, behind businesses on the main street. We expected noise to be a problem, but were pleasantly surprised by the peace and quiet. No problem with parking and lovely spacious units. The "splash pool" brought great relief. Both cottages were excellently equipped. The large stoeps and braai facilities were truly a plus. The cottage is not serviced daily, but this was not a problem for us. We only found the bathroom (of a single cottage) a bit inconvenient - it is small and there are no shelves or surfaces on which you can place your cosmetics. The larger cottage (2 bedroom) is better equipped - even with dishwasher and washing machine. Both have fireplaces, air conditioning and ceiling fans which are definitely necessary for Prince Albert. A laundry next to the entrance for those who don't want to do their own laundry. The host and hostess are particularly friendly and helpful.

Lieflike wegbreek

'n Pragtige kothuis met 'n gerieflike kombuisie en sitkamer. Alhoewel dit nie koud genoeg was nie sou die kaggeltjie ideaal gewees het vir hierdie "cozy" kothuis. Volgende keer bespreek ons die ander kothuis ook, want die binnehof met die swembad met sy pragtige stoepe is ideaal vir 3 paartjies of 'n familienaweek weg. Baie dankie vir 'n heerlike naweek. Die lieflike matras op die bed en die yslike stortkop in die stort het gesorg vir baie ontspanning.

Lovely getaway

A beautiful cottage with a comfortable kitchen and living room. Although it was not cold enough, the fireplace would have been ideal for this "cozy" cottage. Next time we will book the other cottage as well, because the courtyard with the swimming pool with its beautiful verandas is ideal for 3 couples or a family weekend away. Thank you very much for a wonderful weekend. The lovely mattress on the bed and the huge shower head in the shower ensured a lot of relaxation.
