Asemrowend, gemaklik, ontspannend, verras, ons het baie lekker gebly.

Ons het baie lekker gebly en die gasheer was baie vriendelik en bedagsaam. Elk van ons het selfs 'n onverwagse Lindt Paashaas ontvang. Die uitsig oor die berge verander elke dag afhangend van die son en die wolke, elke dag was mooier as die vorige dag.

Breathtaking, comfortable, relaxing, surprised, we had a great stay.

We had a great stay and the host was very friendly and considerate. Each of us even received an unexpected Lindt Easter Bunny. The view of the mountains changes every day depending on the sun and the clouds, every day was more beautiful than the previous day.

Uitstekend toegerus waar ons behoorlik bederf was deur die eienaars.

Ons het 'n heerlike en rustige tyd by Jovali gehad. Nie net was die blyplek van hoë gehalte nie, maar die natuurskoon was pragtig. Ons sal vir seker weer daar oornag.

Dankie vir jou terugvoering, Fanie. Ons herinner jou graag dat Jovali Clarens selfsorg is, alhoewel ons koffiepeule vir elke dag voorsien, asook kitskoffie, tee en melk. Ons noem ook baie duidelik in ons bevestiging dat ons studios nie gediens word vir besprekings van 2 nagte of minder nie. Ons vertrou julle het die tuisgebakte koek om julle 25ste huweliksherdenking te vier, geniet. Groete, Johan en Tim

Uitstekend, rustige omgewing, ons beveel dit beslis aan.

Tweede keer wat ons by Jovali tuis gaan in Clarens. In die 4 jaar wat ons laas daar tuisgegaan het, het alles net beter geword. Die plek is netjies, ontvangs vriendelik. Alles wat jy ooit sal gebruik is beskikbaar in die woonheid. Ons is spyt dat ons net vir eendag bespreek het. Dankie, groete en baie dankie.

Second time we stay at Jovali's home in Clarens. In the 4 years since we last lived there, everything has only gotten better. The place is neat, reception friendly. Everything you will ever use is available in the residence. We regret that we only booked for one day. Thank you, greetings and thank you very much.

Romantiese bestemming in die berge.

Ons het ons 31ste huweliks herdenking hierdie week gevier en die laaste 2 nagte van ons verlof kom kuier by Jovali. Wat 'n besondere plek? Die gasheerpaar was so vriendelik en het waarlik aan alles gedink, tot sherry en 'n heerlike varsgebakte wortelkoek wat ons ingewag het. Daar was vars melk, heerlike beskuit, heerlike topklas koffie, Lindt sjokolade en ander lekkertjies, tot 'n botteltjie voelsaad vir die baie soorte vinkies wat daar kom kuier het. Die kamer was kraaknetjies en alles is van die hoogste gehalte. Dit is romanties ouwerelds mooi, met asemrowende uitsigte oor die Maluti-berge. Het die volmaan sien opkom oor die berge, wat 'n asemrowende gesig! Die volgende oggend was dit weer die pragtige sonsopkoms. Die plek is op 'n plaas, maar jy voel nie asof jy op 'n plaas is nie. Dit is ongeveer 6 km buite Clarens, so al die gewoel van die dorp is net 'n paar minute weg. Wanneer jy by Jovali op die stoep sit en die koel aandlug waai oor jou terwyl die son die wêreld verkleur as hy sak, voel jy hoe die bedruktheid van 'n besige stadslewe uit jou gebeente vloei en jou lig en swewend laat, sodat jy tussen die miljoene pragtige sterre in die melkweg bo jou jou pad wil vind. 'n Ware sprokie vir 'n stadskind.

Romantic destination in the mountains.

We celebrated our 31st wedding anniversary this week and spent the last 2 nights of our holiday visiting Jovali. What a special place? The host couple were so friendly and truly thought of everything, down to sherry and a delicious freshly baked carrot cake that awaited us. There was fresh milk, delicious biscuits, delicious top-class coffee, Lindt chocolate and other goodies, up to a bottle of fenugreek seed for the many types of finches who came to visit. The room was spotless and everything is of the highest quality. It is romantically old-worldly beautiful, with breathtaking views of the Maluti mountains. Saw the full moon rise over the mountains, what a breathtaking sight! The next morning it was again the beautiful sunrise. The place is on a farm, but you don't feel like you're on a farm. It is approximately 6 km outside of Clarens, so all the hustle and bustle of town is only a few minutes away. When you sit on the porch at Jovali and the cool evening air blows over you as the sun colors the world as it sets, you feel the pressures of a busy city life drain from your bones and leave you light and floating, so that you are among the millions of beautiful stars in the galaxy above you want to find your way. A true fairy tale for a city child.

Asemrowend mooi, stil en rustig.

Al ons verwagtinge is oortref. Jovali gaan regtigwaar uit hul pad om gaste welkom te laat voel. En die choc-eclaires was absolute bederf! Wow! Daar is aandag gegee aan al die klein detail goedjies, selfs voëltjiesaad is voorsien. Baie dankie Tim en Johan, ons sal beslis terugkom. Die heel enigste effense negatief was die grondpaadjie, dit was growwer en klipperiger as verwag (nie aan te bevele vir kleiner voertuie nie), maar as jy stadig genoeg ry is dit nie te erg nie.

This review is being shown in its original language.

Breathtakingly beautiful, quiet and peaceful.

All our expectations were exceeded. Jovali really goes out of their way to make guests feel welcome. And the choc eclaires were an absolute treat! Wow! Attention was paid to all the little details, even bird seed was provided. Thank you very much Tim and Johan, we will definitely come back. The very only slight negative was the dirt track, it was rougher and rockier than expected (not recommended for smaller vehicles), but if you drive slowly enough it's not too bad.

Vyfster-verblyf!

Ek en my seun het behoorlik bederf en geseënd gevoel by Jovali. Ons is gasvry en vriendelik verwelkom. Die eenheid is baie smaakvol gemeubileerd en daar kom niks kort nie. Wonderlike uitsig, die vryheid van stilte en stap, ondervloerse verhitting (groot bonus), vars beskuit en sjokolade-croissant, heerlike koffie, winter-sterrehemel en 'n supermaan, luukse beddegoed. Ons gaan julle verseker weer besoek. Baie dankie Johan en Tim.

Transquility, glamour class and breathtaking views.

Within 7 minutes from town, but over the hill away from town that you can hit two birds with one stone. You can have the beauty and tranquility of being alone overlooking the mountains and within 7 minutes be back in town in the buzz of Clarens or having a 5 star meal at Clementines or at Treat. Little extras in the room were special. Loved the birds in the morning. A 500 m walk down to the river is a romantic walk and great spot for picnic. Seeing the moon rise above the mountains at night is a treat as well and the sunrise.

Aangesien ons selfsorg is word die studios nie daagliks gediens nie, soos genoem word in ons skrywe wat ons uitstuur aan elke gas voor hulle aankoms. Daar is 'n opsie om daaglikse diens te versoek en ekstra te betaal daarvoor, en ons noem dit in ons inligtingsbrosjure in die kamer. In die toekoms sal ons 'n punt maak om die opsie aan te bied wanneer ons ons gaste inboek.

Gerieflik ingerig, pragtige eenhede en asemrowende natuur.

Jovali het al ons verwagtinge oortref! Die eenhede het enige iets wat 'n mens kan benodig en meer met 'n fantastiese uitsig oor die berge. Ons woefkind het die wandelpaadjies en oop ruimte baie geniet en ons sal definitief weer terugkom vir die rustigheid. Die eienaars is baie vriendelik en behulpsaam en al die klein bederfies soos die sherry en koeksusters is 'n ekstra bonus!

Comfortably furnished, beautiful units and breathtaking nature.

Jovali exceeded all our expectations! The units have everything one could need and more with a fantastic view of the mountains. Our toddler really enjoyed the walking paths and open space and we will definitely come back for the tranquility. The owners are very friendly and helpful and all the little treats like the sherry and cake sisters are an extra bonus!

So na aan die natuur en jou Hemelse Vader, verskietende sterre, jy moet daar tuisgaan!

Aukeline, dit was so lekker, so goed ingerig, netjies en met koeksisters in die yskas, hoeveel meer wil jy hê. Heerlikste beskuit, met melk in die yskas. As ek weer Clarens toe gaan sal ek vir seker weer daar gaan bly. So 'n mooi uitsig, stil, in die aand die mooiste lugruim en die verskietende sterre, ek het dit so lanklaas gesien. Een woord: awesome!

Baie rustige en privaat atmosfeer omring deur mooiste berge en alles wat nodig is om dit gerieflik te maak.

'n Paar woorde om ons 4 dae op te som: stil, pragtige uitsig, ondervloerse verhitting, kombuisie toegerus met alles wat jy nodig het en van baie goeie gehalte, vars blomme, beskuit en koeksisters in die yskas, sjerrie en sjokolade, kwaliteit beddegoed asook kombuisware, haardroër, lekker handdoeke en seep in die badkamer, onderdakparkering, alles wat nodig is vir 'n lekker braai (bring net jou vleis). En die sneeu op die berg was die resep vir die lekker tuisgebakte beskuit wat ons gasvrou aangestuur het. Ons sal definitief weer by Jovali gaan bly. Ideaal vir 'n stil wegbreek vir 2 mense. Jy kan regtig net jou klere pak! Alles is voorsien. Eet in Clarens by al die oulike eetplekke.

Very peaceful and private atmosphere surrounded by beautiful mountains and everything needed to make it convenient.

A few words to sum up our 4 days: quiet, beautiful views, underfloor heating, kitchenette equipped with everything you need and of very good quality, fresh flowers, rusks and koeksisters in the fridge, sherry and chocolate, quality bedding as well as kitchenware, hair dryer, nice towels and soap in the bathroom, undercover parking, everything needed for a nice braai (just bring your meat). And the snow on the mountain was the recipe for the delicious homemade rusks that our hostess sent. We will definitely stay at Jovali again. Ideal for a quiet getaway for 2 people. You can really just pack your clothes! Everything is provided. Dine in Clarens at all the great eateries.

Kamer met 'n pragtige uitsig net buite Clarens.

Ons het lekker gebly by Jovali. Die doodse stilte en natuurskoon was presies wat ons in gedagte gehad het om bietjie van die gejaagdheid van die lewe te vergeet. Die kinders het dit baie geniet om af te stap na die rivier en om daar te kan piekniek hou. Onthou om drinkwater saam te vat as jy meer as een nag wil oorslaap - die area se kraanwater kan soms na swael ruik. Die kamers is netjies en goed toegerus. Al was die herfswindjie koel was die kamer knus en warm. 'n Lekker ervaring!

Room with a beautiful view just outside Clarens.

We had a great stay at Jovali. The dead silence and scenery were exactly what we had in mind to forget about the rush of life. The kids enjoyed walking down the river and having a picnic. Remember to take drinking water if you want to sleep more than one night - the area's tap water can sometimes smell like sulphur. The rooms are neat and well-equipped. Even though the autumn wind was cool, the room was cosy and warm. A great experience!

Absolute hemel op aarde!

Waar begin 'n mens. Die uitsig is asemrowend! Die huis is baie mooi en skoon! Die oom en tannie is so vriendelik, hulle is soos regte "oupa-en-ouma-mense"! Hulle was so besorg oor ons kinders en my seuntjie was absoluut mal oor hulle. Om elke oggend wakker te word met daai uitsig en sonsopkoms, voel dit of 'n mens 'n bietjie nader is aan die hemel. Dis doodstil en so rustig in die aande. Die tuin is 'n prag vir die oë en so mooi versorg. P.S. Baie dankie vir my plantjies en saadjies, tannie.

Perfekte selfsorg-opsie vir 2 persone.

Die gasvryheid van die eienaars, die baie goeie toegeruste eenheid tesame met die fantastiese uitsig van die omgewing sorg vir werklike ontspanning. Die ligging is perfek om Clarens omgewing te besoek. Ons kan Jovali hoogs aanbeveel.

Dit was asemrowend mooi, en so rustig.

Beste plekkie sover waar ons nog gebly het. Als is so mooi en netjies. Die uitsig wat mens het in die oggend is fantasties dit is 'n skilderprent. Die rustigheid was regtig baie lekker en die wandelpaadjies iets om te sien.

Best place that we have stayed at so far. Everything is beautiful and neat. The view in the morning is fantastic like a work of art. The tranquillity was very nice and the trails are something to see.

'n Pragtige wel ingerigte eenheid, perfek vir 'n romantiese of ontspanningswegbreek!

Jovali is altyd die moeite werd om te gaan besoek. Dis seker een van die mooiste plekke in ons land met die uitsig is dit net asemrowend. Ons kom elke jaar terug! Ons verkies die plaas en uitsig eerder as om in die dorp self te bly. Die eienaars is ook baie vriendelik en behulpsaam. Sien julle weer volgende jaar.

A beautifully appointed unit, perfect for a romantic or relaxing getaway!

Jovali is always worth a visit. It's probably one of the most beautiful places in our country with the view it's just breathtaking. We come back every year! We prefer the farm and view rather than staying in the town itself. The owners are also very friendly and helpful. See you again next year.

Rustige wegbreek van die stad se gejaag.

Ons het heerlik by Jovali gebly. Die huisie was mooi skoon en netjies. Lekker sjerrie, beskuitjies en koeksisters het ons ingewag met ons aankoms by Jovali. Asook braaigeriewe is beskikbaar en net 'n klipgooi uit die dorp. Die uitsig op die stoepie is beeldskoon en laat mens sommer dadelik rustig voel. Ek sal vir seker weer bly Jovali gaan bly as ek in Clarens en omgewing is.

Peaceful break for the haste of the city.

We had a lovely stay at Jovali. The house was very clean and neat. Nice sherry, rusks and koeksisters were available at arrival at Jovali. Braai facilities were also available and was only a stone's throw outside of town. The view from the porch was beautiful and makes you feel peaceful immediately. I will certainly visit Jovali again when I am in the Clarens area.

Om hier te bly is pure bederf.

Goed toegeruste eenheid met baie ekstras wat mens nie altyd verwag nie, soos die koeksisters in die yskas, sambrele, badkamerbenodigdhede, uitstekende kastrolle en bakke, en nog baie meer. Die uitsig is asemrowend en stappaadjies baie goed versorg. Ons sal weer hier kuier.

Staying here is pure pampering.

Well equipped unit with lots of extras that you don't always expect, such as the biscuit tins in the fridge, umbrellas, bathroom essentials, excellent pots and pans, and much more. The view is breathtaking and walking paths very well maintained. We will visit here again.

Wonderlike plek om te bly en te rus.

Jovali is goed gelëe in 'n pragtige omgewing buite Clarens wat werklikwaar naby alles is, maar tog ook die rustigheid van 'n plaas bied. Eienaars wonderlike mense wat jou uiters welkom laat voel. Werklik goeie basis om die omgewing te verken.

Wonderful place to stay and rest.

Jovali is well situated in a beautiful setting outside Clarens which is really close to everything, yet also offers the tranquility of a farm. Owners wonderful people who make you feel extremely welcome. Really good base to explore the area.

Awesome, perfekte, rustige wegbreeknaweek.

Wat 'n wonderlike naweek het ons gehad. Met ons aankoms Vrydagaand was ons kamer lekker warm (ondervloerse verhitting was klaar aan), sjerrie en sjokelade met aankoms en 'n ekstra bederfie in die yskas. Wat 'n lekker rustige, asemrowende uitsig oor die berge. Ons plekke was netjies, skoon met ekstra linne vir die koue nagte wat ons nie eens nodig gehad het nie. Ons sal beslis teruggaan. Baie dankie vir 'n lekker familiewegbreeknaweek.
