Salige verblyf weg van alles in die middel van die Karoo.

Die 14 km-grondpad na Joosteswerwe Guest Farm is die moeite werd om by die juweel uit te kom. Ons is tot twee sakke brandhout gegee om die koue te verdryf langs die binneshuise kaggel, was ook bevoorreg om skaapskeerders in aksie sien, net salig om in die veld te gaan stap en terug te kom by 'n uiters netjiese plaashuis met alle moontlike geriewe.

Blissful stay away from it all in the middle of the Karoo.

The 14km dirt road to Joosteswerwe Guest Farm is well worth it to get to the gem. We were given up to two bags of firewood to ward off the cold by the indoor fireplace, were also privileged to see sheep shearers in action, just blissful to go for a walk in the field and come back to an extremely neat farmhouse with all possible amenities.

Coming from the North West, the stay and surroundings was definitely an experience.

The owners were very friendly and accommodating. I think they just need to elaborate a bit on the the fact that this accommodation is not situated just off the road. You need to travel quite a distance and open 5 gates to arrive at your destination. An experience I had as a child and have fond memories, but not everyone will appreciate.

Pragtige oopheid en grootheid, plaas wat mens net terugbring na genade toe.

Na 45 min en 14 km met 7 plaashekke wat vir ons 'n belewenis was om by die egte plaasatmosfeer te kan wees. Alles pragtig met egte plaasatmosfeer in die plaashuis. Baie dankie vir die belewenis wat ons op ons ouderdom kon beleef het. Selfs die reëntjie toe ons die volgende dag vertrek was 'n seëning. Sal beslis terugkom.

Beautiful openness and grandeur, place that only brings you back to grace.

After 45 min and 14 km with 7 farm gates which was an experience for us to be able to be at the real farm atmosphere. Everything beautiful with real farm atmosphere in the farmhouse. Thank you very much for the experience we could have experienced at our age. Even the little rain when we left the next day was a blessing. Will definitely come back.

Teleurstellend.

Pragtig van buite maar onprakties van binne. Kombuisblad heeltemal te smal. Geen tafel met stoele by nie. Moet op skoot sit en eet. Trappe na bo pragtig maar gevaarlik. Spasieëring te smal en voldoen beslis nie aan health and Safety requirements nie. Induksiestoof baie kompleks om te werk sonder enige handleiding. Wasbak onprakties. Outomatiese skottelgoedwasser? Waar is die spesiale wasseep? Wie gebruik dit vir oornagdoeleindes? Stortvloer bitter koud in winter. Geen rubbermatjie nie. Uitloop ook half verstop. Water dam op. Die skuifdeur voor badkamer is baie swaar en moeilik om te skuif so jy het nie privaatheid nie. Toegangspad na reën ontoeganklik vir sedanmotors. Het ons 45 min geneem om vanaf gastehuis tot teerpad te kom in daglig met 'n 4x4. Baie hekke om oop te maak. Nie vir oornagdoeleindes geskik nie.

Disappointing.

Beautiful on the outside but impractical on the inside. Kitchen top way too narrow. No table with chairs. Must sit on lap and eat. Stairs to the top beautiful but dangerous. Spacing too narrow and certainly does not meet health and safety requirements. Induction stove very complex to operate without any manual. Sink impractical. Automatic dishwasher? Where is the special laundry soap? Who uses it for overnight purposes? Shower floor bitterly cold in winter. No rubber mat. Spout also half clogged. Water dams up. The sliding door in front of bathroom is very heavy and difficult to move so you have no privacy. Access road after rain inaccessible to sedan cars. Took us 45 min to get from guesthouse to tarmac in daylight with a 4x4. Many gates to open. Not suitable for overnight purposes.

Heerlike Karooplaas-oornag.

Groot en gerieflike huis waar ons een nag oorgeslaap het op pad na die Weskus. Die eienaars was baie gasvry en het ons ingewag met aankoms. Alles was skoon en netjies met skoon linne in elke kamer. Sal weer hier oorslaap.

Karoo-plaas saligheid.

Ons het by Joosteswerwe oorgeslaap op pad Weskus toe. Die ligging is ideaal vir reisigers van Gauteng af. Die gastehuis is so 12km goed onderhoude grondpad van die hoofpad af, maar dit verseker daardie egte Karoo plaas ondervinding met kilometers se uitsig oor die vlaktes en nie 'n ander siel in sig nie. Marina het ons met gasvryheid ontvang, en 'n paar keer met WhatsApp kommunikeer om te hoor hoe ons reis vorder, en ook die volgende dag om seker te maak alles was in orde en ons is weer veilig op ons weg. Een ding om in ag te neem is dat die hele area tussen Vosburg en Carnavon swak Vodacom opvangs het.

Karoo farm bliss.

We slept at Joosteswerwe on the way to the West Coast. The location is ideal for travelers from Gauteng. The guest house is about 12km of well-maintained dirt road from the main road, but it ensures that genuine Karoo farm experience with kilometers of views over the plains and not another soul in sight. Marina received us with hospitality, and communicated several times on WhatsApp to hear how our trip was progressing, and also the next day to make sure everything was in order and we were on our way safely again. One thing to consider is that the whole area between Vosburg and Carnavon has poor Vodacom reception.

Baie gerieflike huis. Ons het net een nag oorgeslaap op pad na ons bestemmimg toe. Ons het vooraf vleis en hout bestel en dit was gereed toe ons daar kom. Die kinders het die Plassdam geniet. Almal het die stilte en skoon lug geniet. Die sonsondergang en die maan se opkoms was asemrowend.

Pure plaas-rustigheid!

Die eienaars is uiters gasvry en ons huisie was pragtig, gerieflik en skoon. Ouer mense en diegene wat sukkel om te loop moet liefs van die ander akkommodasie bespreek aangesien die kothuis 'n baie steil trap het (moet fyn trap met die afkom). Die braai-area is lieflik met 'n mooi uitsig. Hul tjoppies is lipleklekker - van die bestes wat ons al geëet het.

Pure farm tranquility!

The owners are extremely hospitable and our cottage was beautiful, comfortable and clean. Older people and those who have difficulty walking should preferably book the other accommodation as the cottage has a very steep staircase (must tread carefully on the way down). The braai area is lovely with a nice view. Their chops are lip-smacking - some of the best we've ever eaten.

Lovely remote setting for some calm relaxation.

Stayed in the converted barn and the owners were not home, which meant I was completely alone for kilometres - a lovely experience. Sunset and sunrise with only birds and frogs singing is worth it. Sitting on the veranda, reading, whilst the sun settles in a brilliant orange and pink glow was magical. I would not recommend the barn to older or less agile people as the stairs to the loft bedroom would be too dangerous to those of poor footing. The only negative was that the kettle was not usable and there wasn't really any alternative, but this is easy to fix by the owners. Other than that, as the owners were not home, their children met me at the accommodation and insulted me a little with some of their comments, which I am going to guess is down to the fact that I spoke English and did not arrive in a lifted suspension, fitted with everything plus the kitchen sink Toyota - remember never to judge people you do not know (in this instance I am certain for a fact that I have been many places these farmers will sadly never see yet was subjected to insulting comments out of nowhere that took me by complete surprise given that I was a guest). Be that as it may, the accommodation and the surrounding area still makes it worth one's while. Accessible via tar road and a +-15 km farm track that can be driven by any vehicle - just please, please stop speeding: I found a dead fox on a farm road, really now. The turn off to the farm road is well signposted and more or less halfway between Carnarvon and Vosburg (this is not made clear on booking websites). Be sure to stock up on all your meal requirements, firewood, firelighters, matches, etc. as it's a long drive to the nearest town if you do not have everything you need. Bring a plunger and good coffee. There is a fire pit outside and the location really lends itself to a nice fire to sit next to listening to the night sounds - bring what you'll need. Electric blankets on the bed help to fight off the winter nights. Bring a bicycle - the farm roads will call. I had a knock on my door at 5 am, which I just ignored as I was lying in bed (sunrise in winter is at 7:30 am). Not sure what that was about. Take a drive to Vosburg - stunning architecture and, as the signpost outside town says: "enjoy the trees". There is a dirt road between Vosburg and Prieska, if you are like me and want to avoid tar roads at all cost. I drove it with a hatchback, but most people will faint if they had to put their sedan on it as you do need nerves of steel and perhaps a bit of stupidity/crazy on your side to drive it without solid tyres, but luckily I was born with both.

Best rest for the soul and food for the eyes.

We needed a break for our family of four (kids 4 and 8), and this place exceeding our expectations at every turn. The hosts went above and beyond to share their life with us, a guided horse trip and a trip to the Khoisan engravings. There is a lot of attention to detail in the Old Wagon Suite which we loved, and the kids explored the wide spaces and took to the farm dam pool with relish. We will be back as soon as we can.

'n Uitsonderlike ervaring

Wat 'n ongelooflike ervaring vêr weg van die stad en geraas. Ons het in die ou Wa-opstal gebly en dit was ongelooflik mooi toegerus. Ons gasvrou was baie vriendelik en behulpsaam en met goeie kommunikasie het ons maklik die plek bereik. Ek is wel jammer dat ons nie langer kon bly om die plaasaktiwiteite te ervaar nie. Iets wat in ag geneem moet word wanneer jy die plaas besoek is dat dit 14 km grondpad is van die teerpad af en dat daar ook geen sein is nie. In die nag is dit ook pikdonker, so as jy die lig in die kamer aanskakel dan kom al die goggas soontoe.

An exceptional experience

What an amazing experience far away from the city and noise. We stayed in the old Wa homestead and it was incredibly well equipped. Our hostess was very friendly and helpful and with good communication we easily reached the place. I do regret that we could not stay longer to experience the farm activities. Something that should be taken into account when you visit the farm is that it is 14 km of dirt road from the tarmac road and that there is also no signal. At night it is also pitch black, so if you turn on the light in the room, all the bugs come there.

A real oasis on the alternative route from the Cape Town to the north and east.

Our preference is for farm stays and this location was one of best that we have experienced. It is an easy transit from the tar to Joosteswerwe. We were asked to let our hosts know when we were leaving Carnarvon however we couldn't get signal but pressed on regardless. The instructions we had led us through the gates. A refreshing swim in the concrete dam helped us forget the hassle of a puncture we experienced. The youth of the family plugged the hole for us which did the job of getting us to De Aar for a patch. We were grateful for a breeze through the night which did the job of keeping us cool. Beyond delightful.

Oorslaap op pad van Weskus na Gauteng.

Die gebou binne en buite is pragtig. Dit het wel nie lugversorging nie en kan dus warm word in die somer. Die eienaar kan aan 'n paar klein details aandag gee om dit meer gerieflik te maak, maar ons het lekker gebly en die plaas dam swem baie geniet. Weg van alles, selfs selfoon op vangs. Het springbokke en rooihartebees te siene gekry op die plaas.

Overnight on the way from West Coast to Gauteng.

The building inside and out is beautiful. It does not have air conditioning and can therefore get hot in the summer. The owner can pay attention to some small details to make it more comfortable, but we had a nice stay and really enjoyed swimming in the farm pond. Away from everything, even cell phone on catch. Saw springbok and red hearted cattle on the farm.

Baie dankie. Dit was baie lekker en julle het regtig baie moeite gedoen!

Die mense by Joosteswerwe het regtig uit hul pad gegaan om ons tuis te laat voel en ons seuntjies te vermaak met die plaasdinge. Ons het die vol huis gehuur, dus was dit effe duur vir 5 mense maar hulle het dit opgemaak met die kuiertjie by die werkende plaas. Ons sal nie huiwer om weer daar te bly nie.

Fantasties! Fantasties!

Vir die eerste keer kon ons as grootmense sien wat agter die ver bulte en laagtes gebeur. Maak dit die volgende vakansie. Ons kinders was mal oor die stilte en afgeleë wêreld. Die swem in die plaasdam, die barheid, die verblyf. Mag baie meer mense die grootste skat van SA gaan ontdek. Viva die Karoo! Viva Suid-Afrika. Dankie vir die Smitte en die Karoo-aners wat die Karoo so beskerm en instand hou. Dis 'n pre-historiese wêreld wat in die leiklip, laag vir laag vasgevang is.

Totale rus en vrede!

Joosteswerwe is 7 plaashekke vêr van die teerpad af. Dit was 'n totale wegbreek met min of geen sein nie, wat wonderlik was. Die plaasdam was heerlik koel en 'n groot bonus. Ons het in die skuureenheid gebly en dit was werklik gerieflik ingerig veral die aandag aan detail (klein skottelgoedwasser, ens). Ons was baie hartlik ontvang en het baie welkom gevoel. As jy werklik op soek is na stilte en afsondering is hierdie die plek vir jou. Beslis 'n juweel in die Karoo! Ons sal dit beslis weer besoek.

Total peace and quiet!

Joosteswerwe is 7 farm gates away from the tarmac. It was a total getaway with little to no signal, which was great. The farm pond was delightfully cool and a big bonus. We stayed in the barn unit and it was really comfortably furnished especially the attention to detail (small dishwasher, etc.). We were very warmly received and felt very welcome. If you are really looking for silence and seclusion this is the place for you. Definitely a gem in the Karoo! We will definitely visit again.

Fantasties.

As jy wil weet wat die Karoo is, dan moet jy die plek besoek. Ondersteun hulle gerus. Koop al die tuisgemaakte speserye en konfyte. Hulle moet net meer in voorraad hou. Dit is baie droog en ons bid vir reën.

Rustige omgewing na ure op die pad.

Ons was heerlik verras met ons blyplekkie, pragtig en rustig. Alles wat jy mag nodig he is daar en alhoewel 'n paar km van die grootpad definitief die moeite werd om daar te oornag. Grondpad na blyplekkie baie mooi. Heerlike rustige omgewing na 'n spanningsvolle dag op die pad en kan jy werklik daar rus en batterye herlaai.

Peaceful environment after hours on the road.

We were pleasantly surprised with our place to stay, beautiful and peaceful. Everything you might need is there and although a few km from the main road it is definitely worth spending the night there. Dirt road to place of residence very nice. Wonderful peaceful environment after a stressful day on the road and you can really rest and recharge your batteries there.

'n Juweel in die Karoo.

Hierdie plek en sy gasvrou was 'n heerlike verrassing. Ons is hartlik ingewag met skaapvleis vir ons braai wat ons voor die reis bestel het by die gasvrou. Ons het in die waenhuis oorgebly wat pragtig gerestoureer is met baie moderne afwerkings. Die plaasdam-swembad was 'n wonderlike lafenis na die lang, warm reisdag. Die braai area het volop hout gehad en ons kon heerlik sit en die son sien sak oor die Karoo. Ons sal beslis weer hier stop en wel vir langer omrede daar soveel aangebeid was wat ons nie kon inpas nie. Baie dankie vir hierdie pragtige wegbreek.

A jewel in the Karoo.

This place and its hostess were a lovely surprise. We were warmly welcomed with mutton for our barbecue, which we ordered before the trip from the hostess. We stayed in the carriage house which has been beautifully restored with lots of modern touches. The farm pond swimming pool was a wonderful escape after the long, hot travel day. The braai area had plenty of wood and we could sit and watch the sun set over the Karoo. We will definitely stop here again and for longer reasons there was so much worship that we couldn't fit in. Thank you so much for this beautiful getaway.

Baie netjiese en historiese plaasverblyf.

Ons het in die Ou Wa Suite gebly. Baie historiese gebou, mooi gerestoureer met interessante ontwerp. Alles baie mooi skoon en netjies, en rustig! Mens kan werklik die Karoostilte geniet. Bring maar boeke om te lees! Daar is net MTN-opvangs, nie Vodacom of Cell C nie, maar die eienaars verskaf 'n selfoontjie met MTN sodat jy dringende oproepe kan maak. Die swemdammetjie is vars, skoon en yskoud! Die slaapkamer is op 'n mezzanine-verdieping, met steil trappies, so miskien 'n probleem vir mense wat nie baie vas op hulle voete is nie - mens moet maar versigtig trap. Maar die uitsig oor die Karoo, van die boonste verdieping, is dit werd! Ek sal net voorstel dat daar 'n trappie aangebring word sodat kort mensies die potte en panne kan bykom! Ek stel ook voor 'n dat 'n gemaklike rusbank buite verskaf word, sodat jy op jou rug kan lê en sterre kyk! Hierdie plekkie is hemels. Ons was hartseer om weg te ry.

Very neat and historic farm stay.

We stayed in the Old Wa Suite. Very historic building, nicely restored with interesting design. Everything very nice, clean and tidy, and peaceful! One can really enjoy the Karoo silence. Bring books to read! There is only MTN reception, not Vodacom or Cell C, but the owners provide a mobile phone with MTN so you can make urgent calls. The swimming pond is fresh, clean and ice cold! The bedroom is on a mezzanine floor, with steep steps, so maybe a problem for people who are not very steady on their feet - you have to tread carefully. But the view over the Karoo, from the top floor, is worth it! I would only suggest that a step be added so short people can reach the pots and pans! I also suggest providing a comfortable couch outside, so you can lie on your back and watch the stars! This place is heavenly. We were sad to drive away.

Rus vir die siel, alleen, gerieflik.

Ons het net 'n enkel nag geslaap, aangesien ons op pad was deur die Karoo. Dit was effens verder uit die dorp as wat ek besef het, en die trap na die slaapkamer is baie steil. Ons het egter heerlik geslaap. Ons is gul ontvang, daar was hout vir die braai beskikbaar, die plekkie was baie goed ingerig en gerieflik. Ons kon rondstap en het heerlik ontspan. Ek sal enige tyd weer daar oorbly as ek die geleentheid kry en dis die ideale plek om 'n dag of 2 te vertoef met 'n boek om jou batterye te herlaai.

Rest for the soul, alone, comfortable.

We only slept a single night, as we were on our way through the Karoo. It was slightly further out of town than I realized, and the stairs to the bedroom are very steep. However, we slept well. We were generously received, there was wood available for the braai, the place was very well furnished and comfortable. We were able to walk around and had a great time relaxing. I would stay there again anytime if I get the chance and it's the ideal place to linger for a day or 2 with a book to recharge your batteries.

Dit was 'n wonderlike ervaring om so diep in die Karoo op 'n werkende plaas te vertoef. Twee dae se sielsrus en heerlike Karoo skaap. Die mense kon nie genoeg doen om ons welkom te laat voel nie en die swem in die plaasdam was 'n hoogtepunt vir almal.

Regte egte plaas, Karoo-ervaring, wonderlike gasvryheid en altyd beskikbaar.

Regte Karoo-ervaring. Joosteswerwe het my op my gemak gehad. Die ooptes en plaas was 'n ervaring. Omdat ek uit Gauteng kom het my senuwees begin knaag die 1ste aand, Marina het vinnig my siel laat rus. Joosteswerwe se mense was enige tyd beskikbaar. Die geskiedenis en ou plaas goedere is wonderlik om te beskou. Die perdekar is 'n moet en die geklimmery en stap om boesmantekeninge te sien. Die hele gesin is baie gasvry. Nog nooit het ek so iets beleef. Joosteswerwe, die plaashuis is amazing en die scenery is fantasties en goed vir 'n mens se siel. So kon ek sien daar is nog goeie mense op die aarde. Dankie vir alles. Dis definitief iets om te beleef, 'n ander wêreld, maar dit was amazing. Nuwe stories en memories vir 'n leeftyd.

Real Karoo experience. Joosteswerwe put me at ease. The open spaces and farm were an experience. Because I come from Gauteng my nerves started to gnaw the 1st night, Marina quickly put my soul at rest. Joosteswerwe's people were available at any time. The history and old farm goods are wonderful to look at. The horse cart is a must and the climbing and walking to see bushman drawings. The whole family is very hospitable. I have never experienced anything like this. Joosteswerwe, the farmhouse is amazing and the scenery is fantastic and good for one's soul. So I could see that there are still good people on earth. Thanks for everything. It's definitely something to experience, another world, but it was amazing. New stories and memories for a lifetime.

Idyllic getaway and superior service.

Our stay at Joosteswerwe was by far the best part of our 3 week holiday. Secluded and private, the house was spacious and well equipped. The clean farm dam was a wonderful relief from the heat and a perfect place to view the vastness of the Karoo from. We had 2 dogs and a cat with us - the fencing is proper and therefore our pets had plenty of space to roam free and yet could not get out into the veld. The best thing about this stay was the hosts. They made sure that we enjoyed every part of our stay! We were shown the operation of the farm and the kids were permitted to take part in the feeding of the animals. We had an awesome horse riding trip to the Boesman paintings, and every effort was made to ensure that each one of us enjoyed the trip at our specific level of riding. We were treated to scones and snacks from their Oom Plaas product, which I highly recommend. We will definitely return to this spot in the future and it is highly recommended.

Karoogasvryheid op sy beste.

Marje het 'n pragtige huis vir gaste na lang dag se reis. Rustige geblêr van skape en springbokke om die huis. Marje het ons reis na die plaas gevolg om seker te maak ons kom veilig daar. En waar kry jy nog vandag vrieskas vol vleis wat jy kan gebruik en dit alles op basis van eerbaarheid.

Karoo hospitality at its best.

Marje has a beautiful home for guests after a long day's travel. Quiet bleating of sheep and spring goats around the house. Marje followed our journey to the farm to make sure we got there safely. And where do you still find a freezer full of meat today that you can use and all this on the basis of respectability.

Uitstekende plaasverblyf in die hartjie van die Karoo.

'n Voorreg om te kan oorslaap in so 'n omgewing en huis. Kon heerlik in plaasdam swem en die dag se stof afwas en vleisie onder sterre braai. Sal weer gaan en langer bly.

Excellent farm stay in the heart of the Karoo.

A privilege to be able to sleep over in such an environment and home. Was able to swim in the farm pond and wash off the day's dust and barbecue meat under the stars. Will go again and stay longer.

Rustige wegbreek van die gejaagde stadslewe.

Ons het baie lekker oornag by Joosteswerwe Gaste Plaas. Die omgewing is pragtig, die rustigheid van die plaas is soos kos vir 'n stadsjapie se siel. Die huis het soveel geskiedenis en nostalgie, en is baie netjies en goed toegerus. Ons sal beslis weer daar wil tuisgaan, maar die keer vir langer as net 'n oornag met ons reis na die Weskus. Dankie aan die eienaars dat hulle bereid is om die pragwêreld met ander te deel!

Peaceful getaway from the busy city life.

We had a lovely stay at Joosteswerwe Guest Farm. The area is beautiful, die peacefulness of the farm is food for a city slicker's soul. The house has so much history and nostalgia and is very neat and well equipped. We definitely want stay there again, but next time for longer than just an overnight on our way to the West Coast. Thank you to the owners that they are willing to share this beautiful place with others.

'n Unieke ervaring!

Hoewel die grondpad na die plaas 'n groot uitdaging was vir ons lae-profielwiele, was ons aangenaam verras met die ontvangs, die lieflike ruim plaashuis, die geriewe en ekstras en veral die absolute privaatheid. Geen detail was oorgesien om ons verblyf so gemaklik as moontlik te maak nie. Die uitsig en stilte was besonders en ons was baie spyt dat ons net een aand bespreek het. Ons sal met graagte die plaas weer in die toekoms wil besoek en beslis sommer 'n paar dae bly.

A unique experience!

Although the dirt road to the farm posed a great challenge to our low-profile tires, we were pleasantly surprised with the reception, the beautiful spacious farmhouse, amenities and extras and especially the absolute privacy. No detail was overlooked to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The views and tranquility were great and we were very sorry that we booked for one night only. We would love to visit the farm again in the future and will definitely stay for a few days.

Ek sal Joosteswerwe beslis aanbeveel.

Die verblyf was skoon en netjies asook baie ruim.Tipiese plattelandse gasvryheid. Ontvangs daar was warm. 'n Mens voel sommer dadelik welkom. Het goed uitgerus. Beveel beslis aan vir enige iemand wat wil gaan ontspan en die natuur wil geniet.

Regte egte plaasondervinding.

Ons kan Joosteswerwe aanbeveel as 'n plek om 'n paar dae oor te bly. Dis ideaal om jou batterye te herlaai en eenvoudig die Karoo te geniet. Die gul en hartlike ontvangs deur opregte mense is werklik waardeer.
