Heel bevredigend.

Die plek het alles wat 'n mens verwag. Alles het gewerk en alles was beskikbaar daar. Daar is nie een ding wat ons gekort het nie.

Ongelooflik lekker.

Daardie stoep met braai is n wenner. Goed gelee. Skep n heerlike huislike atmosfeer met die lekker tuin vanaf die stoep. En a g daarvan lekker privaat.

Voorwaar 'n paradys-ervaring om in die tuin tyd te verwyl.

Cornelia, baie dankie vir die gesellige eenheid waarin ek kon tuisgaan. Die tuin is 'n ware paradys-ervaring.

Cornelia is super gasvry en die Garden Cottage is vol karakter met n besonderse pragtige tuin. Kon miskien skoner gewees het, daar was 'n paar spinnerakke en badkamer se wasbak se drein nie superskoon nie, maar oor die algemeen aanvaarbaar

Cornelia is super gasvry en die Garden Cottage is vol karakter met n besonderse pragtige tuin. Kon miskien skoner gewees het, daar was n paar spinnerakke en badkamer se wasbak se drein nie superskoon nie, maar oor die algemeen aanvaarbaar. Tip: Vat tonne en tonne muskietafweermiddels, die visdammetjie is 'n broeines vir muskiete en ons kinders het deur geloop!

Haven of Peace & Garden Cottage's response

Dankie vir jou mening. Ons probeer hard om almal tevrede te stel. Aan die muskiete in Hermanus is daar weinig te doen. Ek kan net noem dat die lopende fontein in die dammetjie verhoed dat hulle daar uitbroei, maar ongelukkig is daar talle ander broeiplekke vir muskiete oral in die omgewing.

Uitnemend! Uitstekend!

Die enigste ware dilemma was die ongelyke en swak gekonstrueerde tuinpaadjie van die parkeerarea na die ingang. 'n Mikrogolfoond sal 'n waardevolle verbetering wees.

Haven of Peace & Garden Cottage's response

Ek verstaan nie die opmerking oor die mikrogolfoond nie. Daar is wel 'n mikrogolfoond in die eenheid.
Ons hou nogal van die informele tuinpaadjie soos hy is, jammer dat dit vir julle ongerieflik was.

Verwaarloos en vuil.

Was vriendelik verwelkom, maar ongelukkig was die Haven of Peace & Garden Cottage baie verwaarloos en vuil!

Haven of Peace & Garden Cottage's response

Beste Reinardt,

Dankie vir jou terugvoering.

Ons sou graag meer inligting wou hê oor wat jy as "verwaarloos en vuil" beskryf, aangesien ons werklik gesteld is op netheid en heelwat tyd aan die instandhouding van die eenheid bestee. Jy het tydens jou verblyf vir insektegif gevra, wat onmiddellik verskaf is. Jy het dus moontlik verwys na die teenwoordigheid van vlieë - iets wat ongelukkig hierdie tyd van die jaar 'n probleem in die hele Hermanus is, en nie net by Garden Cottage nie - ten spyte van die feit dat vullis gereeld verwyder word.

Kontak ons gerus direk indien jy enige verdere voorstelle het oor hoe die netheid van die geriewe verbeter kan word. Ons sal graag aandag skenk aan aspekte wat tot 'n meer aangename verblyf vir alle gaste sal bydra.

Vriendelike groete,
Cornelia

Peaceful cottage in Onrus.

I enjoyed the couple of nights I stayed at the Garden Cottage. The kitchen is fully equipped and the comfortable and spacious living and bedroom area make it ideal for a few nights stay. The patio and BBQ area look out over a peaceful garden with pond and mountain views, perfect for reading a book or two. The shower is spacious and all facilities very clean. Full DSTV bouquet was a nice touch for cold evenings. My host, Cornelia, was very friendly and helpful. I look forward to returning for another few nights stay. I can recommend this accommodation.

Beste verblyf wat ons nog ooit in gebly het!

Ons was 3 volwassenes en ons klein 1 jarige dogtertjie en ons het onsself besonders baie geniet! Wat vir ons opvallend was is die absolute rustigheid en die uitsonderlike en besonderse mooi tuin! Die plek is skoon en netjies en ons het baie veilig gevoel te alle tye! Ons sal definitief weer daar gaan bly!

Cosy, home from home, must return to enjoy/spend more time at!

The location was great - walking distance from the beach. Comfortable and cosy with all that is required for self-catering - pity we did not have time to utilise the GREAT braai place, but sat on the beautiful stoep (with the lovely sound from the water feature) drinking wine with snacks. The unit has good security for car included. We were welcomed in a very friendly manner and made to feel at home. We enjoyed the fantastic walkways and saw some beautiful sunsets. Love Onrus - must return!

Neat, clean and quiet area.

The room was nice and clean and the bedding was fresh and soft. The area is peaceful and quiet. Not too far from the town centre and beach. The only negative point is that there was no parking for our car in the yard. This caught me off-guard because it says on the website "off-street parking" and with this statement I understood that it would be on the premises and not in the street or sidewalk. It gave me a bit of a restless night. Maybe it should be corrected on the website because this is one of the first things I check. There weren't other guests around all the time and I feel that the owner could have given us permission to park our car inside the yard, especially at night. Otherwise it is a lovely place.

Netjiese, skoon en stil omgewing.

Die kamer was mooi skoon en beddegoed vars en sag. Die omgewing stil en rustig. Nie te ver vanaf die middedorp en see nie. Die enigste negatief is dat daar nie parkering vir ons motor in die erf nie. Dit het my onkant gevang omdat dit op die webtuiste sê "parkering van die straat af" en met die stelling verstaan ek dit op die erf is en nie in die pad of sypaadjie nie. Dit het vir my bietjie van onrustige nagte gegee. Miskien moet dit net reggestel word op die webtuiste, want dit is een van die eerste dinge waarna ek kyk. Daar was nie al die tyd gaste nie, en ek voel dat die eienaar miskien net vir ons die toestemming kon gee om ons kar binne die erf te parkeer, veral in die aand. Verder is dit 'n lieflike plekkie.

Haven of Peace & Garden Cottage's response

Die huidige uitleg van Lekkeslaap se webblad maak dit ongelukkig nie moontlik om 'n onderskeid te tref tussen die parkeergeriewe vir die 2 verskillende eenhede nie. Slegs Garden Cottage het 'n binneparkeerplek. Daar is genoeg parkeerruimte buite die erf en die area is snags goed belig.

Even though the place was clean and tidy, my car had to stand on the pavement throughout the day and night.

Dit was rustig.

Alhoewel die plek skoon en netjies was, moes my motor buite op die sypaadjie staan deur die nag en dag.

Daar is ongelukkig nie parkering binne vir Haven of Peace nie - wel vir die groter eenheid, Garden Cottage - soos ook duidelik gestel word op LekkeSlaap se webblad.

Goeie ligging en lekker groot stoep.

Woonstel was mooi netjies, en die groot stoep met braai-area was heerlik vir kuier. My tieners het veral die DStv en WiFi waardeer. Die kombuisware kan gerus opgedateer word, en bykomende breekware sou welkom wees. Oor die algemeen het ons baie lekker rustig gekuier, die gasvrou was vriendelik en die ervaring baie positief. Ek sal definitief weer hier kom bly.

Well worth the money.

The cottage with it's facilities are well worth the money, if it would have been a B&B or lodge. It being a self catering facility, there is no kitchenette to prepare food. We were not keen on preparing food outside the facility, since it is not very hygienic with dogs hair all over the furniture. The dogs kennels are placed on the deck right above the outside furniture of the cottage/unit at the bottom.

Haven of Peace & Garden Cottage's response

We do make it quite clear that the self catering facilities at Haven of Peace are basic and not suitable for the preparation of full meals. We have never had any complaints about these facilities or about the dogs, for that matter, as hygiene and the comfort of our guests are of paramount importance to us.
I may just mention that Johan did not reply to any of my messages to make arrangements with him. He also failed to pay the balance of his booking but, instead, left halfway through the booking, sending me an SMS to ask what to do with the keys.

Aangename verblyf en heerlike weer!

Ons verblyf was aangenaam. Die plek is netjies, behalwe vir stort en wasbak in die badkamer waar die water baie stadig uitloop. Die gevolg is as jy stort staan jy letterlik enkeldiepte in water. Daar is fasiliteite soos 'n Weber-braai en mikrogolfoond, maar daar is slegs kommetjie om skottelgoed te was en waar gooi jy die vuil vetterige water? Ons sou ook graag haardroërs wou hê! Verder is daar ook drupbak onder die toilet wat baie onaangenaam ruik en onhigiënies is met matte in badkamer area. Dankie vir die heerlike tuisgebakte beskuit! Koffie en tee is seker bonus, maar nie melkpoeier nie.

Quite noisy, but adequate for a budget accommodation.

People need to be aware that it is not serviced. The main bedroom is within a few metres of the main entrance gate so you hear it opening and closing at all hours of the day and night so we didn't sleep at all well. The fridge in the main area where the 2 single beds are makes a lot of noise and we had to switch it off every night. However, the veranda is lovely and big and the ping pong table was great for the kids.

Kon heerlik ontspan!

Die plekkie was pragtig skoon en netjies en net 'n paar strate van die see af. Ons het heerlik ontspan in die rustige omgewing. Alhoewel ons bewus was dat die plekkie net basiese kombuisgeriewe het, het ek nogal 'n aparte kombuisie en/of 'n opwasbak gemis! Wat van een van daardie opvoubare tipes dalk?
