Mini-vakansie op die plaas - heerlik!

Ons het Green Thumb gekies omdat dit goeie resensies op die internet gekry het dat die verblyf gemaklik was en dat die damme genoeg vis gehad het. Ons was nie teleurgesteld nie! Ons is lief vir die plaaslewe en dit was heerlik om op 'n werkende plaas te bly en dit te ervaar. Ilze as gasvrou was vreeslik vriendelik en behulpsaam en het uit haar pad gegaan om ons tuis te laat voel. Ons het baie swartbaars gevang en het 'n heerlike tyd gehad.

Mini-vacation on the farm - delicious!

We chose Green Thumb because it got good reviews on the internet that the accommodation was comfortable and that the ponds had plenty of fish. We were not disappointed! We love farm life and it was wonderful to stay on a working farm and experience it. Ilze as hostess was extremely friendly and helpful and went out of her way to make us feel at home. We caught a lot of black bass and had a great time.

Comfortable stay in idyllic setting.

The cottage is tastefully decorated and very comfortable. We were greeted by a friendly owner who made us feel welcome. It is a little bit further (10 min) off our route to Kruger but the peaceful farm setting was well worth it.

Excellent stay

This is the perfect place for a weekend getaway. The house is very clean and comfortable. It has everything you need. Wood was supplied for the fireplace in the living area, which was nice and cozy. We played some board games, which were provided, and had a nice braai on the stoep. We had a walk around on the farm, and down to the dam, very relaxing. I highly recommend The Green Thumb if you want to breakaway for some peace and quiet.

Rustig en landelik

Ons is baie vriendelik ontvang met 'n vuur in die kaggel. Moet 'n heerlike blyplek wees in ander seisoene as die midwinter. 'n Wenk: Plaas 'n kan met noodwater in die huis vir as die waterpype vries.

Wonderlike stil plaasatmosfeer, net jammer ons was net 1 aand daar.

Ons dink daaraan om sommer vir 'n week of so daar te recharge. Dit is regtig mooi en verfrissend op die plaas. Uitstekende diens en die plek is 5-ster-skoon. Baie dankie! Die plek is pragtig!

Ons het in huis 1 gebly en die huis kort nuwe matrasse en n stofie en 'n braai. Weet nie hoe warm dit in die somer daar gaan wees onder 'n asbesdak sonder plafon nie. Daar was geen lugversorger nie. Dit is baie stil en rustig wat 'n pluspunt is.

We stayed in house 1 and the house needs new mattresses and a stove and a braai. Don't know how hot it will be there in the summer under an asbestos roof with no ceiling. There was no air conditioner. It is very quiet and peaceful which is a plus.

Plaasgasvryheid en ouwêreldse sjarme!

Ons liggame en siele het die plaaskuier geniet! Kreatiewe muurversierings in ons oornaghuisie, knetterende kaggel in die aand, lowergroen landskap was 'n stille lafenis. Ons gasvrou Ilze het ons bederf met botter (wat ons vergeet het) en die soetste pruime ooit! Ons dogter kon die hanslammers help drink - 'n groot voorreg vir 'n stadskind.

Farm hospitality and old world charm!

Our bodies and souls enjoyed the farm visit! Creative wall decorations in our overnight cottage, crackling fireplace in the evening, lush green landscape was a quiet experience. Our hostess Ilze spoiled us with butter (which we forgot) and the sweetest plums ever! Our daughter was able to help drink the hanslammers - a great privilege for a city child.

Friendly farm people created a cosy house with a real farm feel.

We were 4 adults and a 6 year old looking to bird the Chrissiesmeer area. The birding was only so-so. The farm was accessible to us and the owners super friendly. It should be noted that there are 2 couples beds in effectively the same room and a single in the lounge (I thought the single was in the loft that shared the main bedroom). A family looking to have a relaxed stay on a working farm should certainly consider this place.

Rustige plaas ervaring.

Ons was opsoek na blyplek vir die naweek aangesien my vrou moes gaan werk in Ermelo. Na 'n lang gesoek het ons op die pragtige plek afgekom. Die gastehuis is deel van 'n plaas met baie spasie vir stap, fietsry en natuurlik ons gunsteling, visvang. Illze, die eienaar, was baie vriendelik en hulpvaardig en het ons sommer baie tuis laat voel. Ons kan regtig die plek aanbeveel vir enige iemand wat vir 'n aand of 'n week wil wegkom. Groete Franco en Anna-Marie.

Peaceful farm experience.

We were looking for accommodation for the weekend seeing that my wife had to work in Ermelo. After a a lot of searching we found this beautiful place. The guest house is part of a farm with a lot of space for walking, biking, and our favourite ─ fishing. Ilze, the owner, was very friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. We really recommend this place to anyone that wants to get away for a night or a week.

Totale ontspannende ervaring!!

Wat 'n wonderlike ervaring om op 'n regte plaas te kon bly. Vars lug, groen weivelde en skape wat lekker verby jou stap. Die kinders het dit so geniet en agter die skapies aangehardloop. Die eienaars was vriendelik en hulpvaardig. Die mooiste skoon natuur wat ons ervaar het. Selfs ons tiener dogter wil terug kom en volgende keer langer bly. Die huis was seker eers 'n skuur gewees en gee daai lekker plaas gevoel. Skoon en netjies en alles wat jy nodig het. Die kaggel verhit die hele plek en dra by tot 'n lekker kuier met bordspelletjies wat daar is om van te kies asook buite speletjies. Ons was daar op 'n koue reën naweek en ons sal definitief terug gaan vir 'n somer naweek ook om vis te vang in die dam. Ek sal dit vir enige gesin aanbeveel wat graag uit die stad wil kom en net voel hoe dit sal wees op 'n plaas.

Total relaxing experience!!

What a wonderful experience to be able to stay on a real farm. Fresh air, green pastures and sheep walking happily past you. The children enjoyed it so much and ran after the lockers. The owners were friendly and helpful. The most beautiful clean nature we have experienced. Even our teenage daughter wants to come back and stay longer next time. The house was probably once a barn and gives that nice farm feeling. Clean and tidy and everything you need. The fireplace heats the whole place and contributes to a nice visit with board games to choose from as well as outside games. We were there on a cold rainy weekend and we will definitely go back for a summer weekend also to fish in the pond. I would recommend it to any family who would like to get out of the city and just feel what it would be like to be on a farm.
