Rustige atmosfeer, skoon en netjies. Baie goeie diens.

Verblyf was gerieflik vir 'n naweek, het lekker afgekoel in die klein plonspoel langs die huis.

Quiet atmosphere, clean and tidy. Very good service.

Accommodation was comfortable for a weekend, cooled off nicely in the small splash pool next to the house.

Peaceful and safe.

What a nice weekend. Two issues I had was that there is no electricity in the unit as advertised, if I knew this in advance I would have been better prepared. Secondly, with the temperatures soaring into the 30+ degrees the (plaas-Jacuzzi) was only half full, a touch disappointing. With that said, it was still a wonderful getaway weekend. I'd go again.

Heerlike wegbreek-akkommodasie.

Huisies is goed toegerus. Die matrasse benodig vervanging, dis bietjie hard. Die toegang en bad is nie oumens-vriendelik nie. Die braai is heerlik op die stoep. Die yskas is eers koud na 'n dag aan die gang. Daar moet aangedui word dat daar nie elektrisiteit nie.

Lovely getaway accommodation.

Cottages are well equipped. The mattresses need replacing, they are a bit hard. The entrance and bath are not elderly friendly. The braai is delicious on the stoep. The fridge is only cold after a day of running. It must be indicated that there is no electricity.

Die yskaste word gereeld gediens en word gou koud, ons vermoed iemand het per ongeluk gedraai aan die verstellings knoppe. Daar word aangedui dat daar gas toestelle is in al ons Cottages en dat daar elektrisiteit naby beskikbaar is. Alles van die beste. Vriendelike groete, Gawie en Erika.

An authentic farm stay where you can lap up the stillness of the country.

While the accommodation and amenities are fairly rustic with no electricity and no oven - only a gas hob, gas fridge and gas geyser, we spent most of our time braaiing and enjoying the view over the orchards from the expansive stoep. If you want your privacy assured, best book Bosveld cottage - it stands on its own up the hill. A walk around the orchards to visit donkeys, Charlie and Sam, is a must, as is sampling the farm's homemade jam.

Ons het 'n heerlike stil nag geniet op die plaas. Die huisie was netjies en toegerus met die nodigste. Die gas en kerse het 'n ware plaasatmosfeer geniet en ons kon die stil lafenis van 'n somersaand op die stoep indrink!

Ons het vir 'n klein honeymoon gegaan en dit was wonderlik. Dit was die perfekte plek om weg te kom van alles en almal en om net af te sny van die besige lewe. Die uitsig is beeldskoon en die natuur maak jou rustig voel. Die eienaar was baie vriendelik.

Dit is sonder twyfel 'n plek waar jy liggaam en siel kan verkwik met die rustigheid en natuurskoon rondom jou.

Wil jy regtig rus? Dan is Grootnek vir jou. Soms voel ek meer moeg na 'n woelige vakansie as voor een. By Grootnek het ek regtig gevoel asof ek heeltemal kan uitrus en ontspan en myself net verloor in die absolute stilte en natuurskoon rondom my. Gerrie die plaasopsigter is die toppunt van gasvryheid. So vol humor en 'n regte plat-op-die-aarde-mens. Niks is vir hom te veel moeite nie en hy vol inligting oor die tipes vrugte asook natuurlike waterbronne, plaasdamme, en verrigtinge in die omgewing. Hy het gehelp met enige iets ─ van 'n flitslig tot hout en ys. As ek enige negatiewe kommentaar kan lewer sal dit die gasyskassie wees. Die reuk van gas in die huisie was soms oorweldigend en die vrieskompartement was veels te klein vir die vleis wat ons saamgeneem het vir amper 10 dae. As eienaar sou ek ook dalk belê in 'n nuwe matras vir die slaapkamer en dan dalk 'n plan maak om die water in die swembadjie skoon te hou. Verder was dit regtig 'n heerlike, rustige tyd en het ons dit baie geniet. Baie dankie vir julle gasvryheid. Ons sal weer terug wees beslis.

It is without a doubt a place where you can refresh body and soul with the tranquility and natural beauty around you.

Do you really want to rest? Then Grootnek is for you. Sometimes I feel more tired after a hectic holiday than before one. At Grootnek I really felt like I could completely rest and relax and just lose myself in the absolute silence and natural beauty around me. Gerrie the farm caretaker is the pinnacle of hospitality. So full of humor and a real down-to-earth person. Nothing is too much trouble for him and he is full of information about the types of fruit as well as natural water sources, farm ponds and events in the area. He helped with anything ─ from a flashlight to wood and ice. If I could make any negative comments it would be the gas box. The smell of gas in the house was sometimes overwhelming and the freezer compartment was much too small for the meat we took with us for almost 10 days. As an owner, I would also perhaps invest in a new mattress for the bedroom and then perhaps make a plan to keep the water in the swimming pool clean. Other than that, it was really a lovely, peaceful time and we enjoyed it a lot. Thank you very much for your hospitality. We will definitely be back again.

Dankie vir jul ondersteuning. Waardeer dit. Ons is bly dat julle jul vakansie by Grootnek geniet het en dat jul beslis weer terug sal wees. Ons het julle dank aan Gerrie oorgedra vir sy gasvryheid. Ons het al ons gasinstallasies dadelik laat nagaan en alles is reg. Ons glo dat jul die gasstofie se knop nie reg toegemaak het nie. Gaste voor en na julle het geen gasreuk klagtes gehad nie. Ons weet die vriesgedeelte is klein vir 10 dae en dit is waarom ons addisionele vrieskaste het by die hoofhuis en stoor waar ons julle vleis ook gestoor het met n sleutel vir toegang. Die matras is vervang en ons dammetjies se water word skoon gehou. Sien uit daarna om julle weer te ontvang. Mooi bly.

Dit was fantasties.

Ons het dit werklik geniet. Die mense is vreeslik vriendelik en behulpsaam. Dit was so rustig en mooi. Al wat ek sou verander is om 'n stort in plaas van 'n bad in die eenheid te sit. Maar die res was amazing.

A cosy clean cottage in lovely country surroundings, lovely walks possible on a working fruit farm. Make sure you are well stocked with whatever supplies you might need as the cottage is some distance from Uniondale. A pair of donkeys in a paddock near the main homestead gave us a lovely noisy welcome.

Ons sal Grootnek net vir 'n naweek (maksimum 3 dae) aanbeveel

Ons het lekker gekuier, maar die bosveldhuisie leen hom glad nie uit vir 14 dae of langer se verblyf nie. Ons het nie 'n yskas gehad wat gewerk het nie en moes ons vleis by die plaashuisstoor se yskas gaan insit. Daar is glad nie hangplek vir 'n mens se klere nie. Net een laaikassie met 3 laaie wat nie 2 mense se klere vir 14 dae kan vat nie. Gordyne hang nog op draad en pas glad nêrens nie. Beddegoed kan maar verbeter.

This review is being shown in its original language.
Translate to English.

We would only recommend Grootnek for a weekend (maximum 3 days).

We had a great time, but the bushveld house does not lend itself at all to a stay of 14 days or longer. We didn't have a fridge that worked and had to put our meat in the farmhouse store's fridge. There is no hanging space for one's clothes at all. Just one chest of drawers with 3 drawers that can't hold 2 people's clothes for 14 days. Curtains are still hanging on wire and do not fit anywhere at all. Bedding can only be improved.

Peaceful and relaxing atmosphere.

I enjoyed a wonderful weekend at Grootnek with two of my friends. Total relaxation surrounded by the peace and quiet of farm life. We stayed in Karoo Cottage and the decor is perfect to take you back in time to when there was no electricity. Sitting by the fire and eating by candlelight. Don't worry because despite there being no electricity there is a gas geyser for hot water, a gas two plate stove and a fridge. Candles are supplied so there is no need to take your own. If having your cellphone charged is important then it would be a good idea to take a power bank - there is a solar charger but this is not sufficient for everyone. Gawie went out of his way to make sure we enjoyed our stay and had everything we needed. If you feel like just getting away from city life then Grootnek is definitely the place for you.

We Love Grootnek, we have visited 3 times over the years.

Please give guests the opportunity to order a box or case of the fruit that is on the trees at the time of their booking. I think if you put the box in the cottage when the guest has ordered and paid, the guests can fill it by picking the fruit from the trees before they leave. This can be a fun activity and this will provide a very special gift that the guests can share with their family and friends when they get home. We can't get something so fresh in the shops. Thanks.

Ons het dit baie geniet en sal beslis weer kom.

Ons was aangenaam verras met die ligging van die gastehuis in die Langkloof. Ons het die baie geniet veral die stilte en panoramiese uitsig gewaardeer. Die gasheer was uiters vriendelik en vermaaklik en het ons baie vinnig tuis laat voel. Dit is net jammer dit is ver van Baviaanskloof af, wat ons eintlike bestemming was.

This guest house has such a nice location in the Langkloof. We really enjoyed it, especially the peace and quiet, and the view. The host was so friendly and quite entertaining, and made us feel at home in a jiffy. Just a pity it is so far from Baviaanskloof, that was our actual destination.

Asemrowende wegbreek teen 'n baie bekostigbare prys.

Die uitsig, ligging en alles wat gepaard gaan saam met Grootnek was asemrowend. Ek is bitter lief vir die Karoo, so dit was die perfekte wegbreek. Baie dankie vir julle gasvryheid, droë hout en pragtige plaas. My vriendin wat saam met my en my seuntjie gegaan het, gaan die naweek saam met haar kêrel Grootnek toe. Ons is versot op die plek! Sien julle gou weer, Gawie en Erika.

Terugkeer na dit wat regtig saak maak.

Ons was toe gouer terug as wat ons gedink het en weereens het ons dit terdeë geniet en besluit dit is beslis ons gunsteling plekkie. Dankie aan Gerrie vir sy gasvryheid en al die moeite wat hy gedoen het om ons al die mooi plekkies te gaan wys. Hy het 'n passie vir die Langkloof. Dankie Gawie en Erika vir die geleentheid om die plaaslewe so te kan geniet. Sien gou weer.

Baie rustig en rustic.

Lekker ou plaashuis, vriendelike bestuurder met die oulikste hondjie. Gerrie het seker gemaak dat ons alles het wat ons nodig het. Die huis was skoon en netjies met die mooiste ou plaasmeubels en dinge. Lekker groot bad, ligte wat met toutjies aangeskakel word, pragtige ou goed. Die hoenders en die donkies het ons lekker laat lag. Volgende keer sal ek graag die aparte cottages wil probeer, lyk of hulle baie mooi uitsig het. Baie rustig in die Langkloof, ek sal definitief wil teruggaan.

Nice big bath, lights that turn on with strings, beautiful old things. The chickens and the donkeys made us laugh. Next time I would like to try the separate cottages, they seem to have a very nice view. Very peaceful in the Langkloof, I would definitely like to go back.

Die fasiliteite is goed om weg te breek vir 'n naweek.

Ons het lekker gebly in die huisie. Dis klein, maar funksioneel en goed geleë teen die kop en skoon. Die omgewing is aangenaam, want dis tussen vrugtebome en jy kyk uit oor die bome van die stoep af. As jy die Roete 62 doen, is dit beslis 'n rusplek om aan te beveel. Moenie dat die feit dat daar nie krag is nie, jou onkant vang nie. Laai jou selfoon en tablet terwyl jy ry. Die atmosfeer met die kerse was wonderlik. Ek kan dit beslis aanbeveel.

The facilities are good to break away for a weekend.

We had a nice stay in the house. It's small, but functional and well located against the head and clean. The environment is pleasant, because it is between fruit trees and you look out over the trees from the porch. If you are doing the Route 62, this is definitely a rest stop to recommend. Don't let the fact that there is no power catch you off guard. Charge your mobile phone and tablet while driving. The atmosphere with the candles was wonderful. I can definitely recommend it.

Goeie diens, akkommodasie, omgewing en rustigheid.

Ons fokus was ma-en-dogter-tyd in die natuur met geen elektroniese of ander inbreukmakers op ons spesiale tydjie saam nie. Ons het dit gekry by Grootnek. Die gasvryheid en behulpsaamheid is tops, die gerieflike en netjiese akkommodasie is lekker geleë tussen die vrugtebome en alles wat ons nodig gehad het was in die chalet beskikbaar. Die rustigheid was heerlik. Ons wou niks meer hê nie - dit was twee nagte om nog lank te onthou!

Ons kon vir niks beter gevra het nie.

Absolute vriendelike ontvangs en gasvryheid. Asemrowende beeldskone omgewing en uitsigte. Rustigste atmosfeer. Kan nie onthou wanneer laas ons sulke lekker absolute stilte beleef het nie (nie gedink ons sal ooit weer nie). Akkommodasie was baie mooi versier, goed toegerus, silwer skoon en privaat. Ons het niks kortgekom nie (eintlik te veel gepak) en ons het verskriklik tuis en gemaklik gevoel. Die kerslig in die aand maak vir 'n wonderlike atmosfeer. Sonder enige TV of elektronika kon ons mekaar se geselskap nog meer waardeer. Die lekker onderdak braai-area het gesorg vir geselligheid selfs in die ligte reën. Om op te som: 'n onvergeetlike ondervinding. Julle sal ons beslis weer sien.

We couldn't have asked for anything better.

Absolute friendly reception and hospitality. Breathtaking picturesque surroundings and views. Most peaceful atmosphere. Can't remember the last time we experienced such nice absolute silence (didn't think we ever would again). Accommodation was very nicely decorated, well equipped, silver clean and private. We lacked nothing (actually packed too much) and we felt incredibly at home and comfortable. The candlelight in the evening makes for a wonderful atmosphere. Without any TV or electronics, we could appreciate each other's company even more. The nice covered braai area ensured conviviality even in the light rain. To sum up: an unforgettable experience. You will definitely see us again.

Die rustigheid self!

Ons tydjie op Grootnek was beslis te kort. Wat 'n wonderlike plek om net te kan afskakel en rustig te wees. Die gebrek aan elektrisiteit maak dat mens eerder buite op die stoep sit en die natuurlewe van voor af waardeer. Vir ons as stadsjapies was die ongelooflike sterre 'n hoogtepunt. Heerlike verblyf, wonderlike gasvryheid en 'n fantastiese uitsig. Ons kan nie wag om weer te gaan nie!

The tranquility itself!

Our time on Grootnek was definitely too short. What a great place to be able to just switch off and be peaceful. The lack of electricity means that one would rather sit outside on the stoep and appreciate the natural life all over again. For us city jays, the incredible stars were a highlight. Lovely stay, wonderful hospitality and a fantastic view. We can't wait to go again!

Wonderlik om net te gaan wegraak in die Langkloof en af te skakel.

Onthou daar is nie Eskom krag nie, maar daar is 'n gasyskas en 'n gas-geyser. Kerse en lampe skep 'n heerlike atmosfeer in die aand. As jy nie van bad hou nie gaan jy 'n probleem hê, want daar is nie 'n stort nie. Om met kerslig in 'n heerlike bad warm water te lê is 'n ander tipe lekker.

Wonderful to just get lost in the Langkloof and switch off.

Remember there is no Eskom power, but there is a gas cupboard and a gas geyser. Candles and lamps create a lovely atmosphere in the evening. If you don't like baths you will have a problem because there is no shower. Lying in a lovely bath of warm water by candlelight is another type of fun.

Baie dankie Ag vir jou kommentaar. Waardeer dit. Ek wil net graag twee opmerkings maak. Daar is wel 'n stort in die Bosveld Huisie. Die Weskus en Karoo Huisies het baddens. Daar is ook 'n gasstoof en indien iemand krag nodig het daar is krag naby beskikbaar in die Hoofhuis (100 meter). Kom kuier gerus weer. Vriendelike groete Gawie le Roux

Peacefully quite and just right for the soul.

Here you go back to basics. You wake up with birds chirping! The mountains and scenery reminds you there are more to life than a office and confined spaces. We met wonderful and warm locals. The eateries are amazing. We traveled to nearby "dorpies" and discovered gems. Thank you to the owners Gawie and Erika for creating a wonderful getaway. Special thanks to Gerhard who took the time to show us the most amazing water streams and mountains scenery. Overall a great experience. Last but not least thank you for great service TravelGround.

It was quiet, comfortable and good value for money.

We spent 2 nights in Bushveld Lodge which, like the other 2 lodges, did not have electricity and we were unaware of that when booking. There is a gas fridge, twin hot plate and water heater, but it's a bit tricky to know how it works if you're not used to it. It's basic, but pleasant, with great views. Gawie and Erika are good hosts and directed us to 2 good nearby restaurants.

Ideaal as jy opsoek is na `n plek om te ontsnap van die stad se geraas, van op die stoep sit tot bergklim.

Die eenhede is goed toegerus, selfsorg met geen elektrisiteit en het swemgeriewe. Dit was toereikend vir 3 dae en die toerusting voldoende. Gerrie het `n wonderlike staproete vir ons aangebied en is dit iets om te onthou saam met die interaksie met die plaaslewe. Die omgewing het `n klomp wonderlike ervarings en bestemmings wat geniet kan word sonder druk van toeristebusse wat jy kan ervaar deur slegs "oor die berg" na Stormsrivier te gaan wat 60 minute weg is.

Stil, rustig en in 'n mooi omgewing met puik gasvryheid!

Geen elektrisiteit en TV bring herfokus! Ons kon lekker rus en weer herfokus op mekaar en die pragtige en rustige natuur.
