Amazing!

It's a cozy little cottage on a quiet farm. Birds and sheep were our alarm in the morning, just in time for us to catch the sunrise and see the mist disappear over the farm. It's beautiful and everyone is friendly.

Baie lekker gebly!

Die huisie is skoon, netjies en toegerus met alles wat mens nodig het. Die uitsig vanaf die stoep, asook die voëllewe was amazing. Ons het baie lekker geroei in die rivier en die bulte op die plaas uitgedraf, ons 2 scottie-kinders het dit net so baie geniet. Die rustigheid en stilte van die area was 'n bonus!

Wonderlike rustige plek met prentjiemooi uitsigte op 'n plaas.

Old Sam's Cottage bied uitstekende waarde vir jou geld is idillies geleë op n plaas met rustigheid en ongerepte uitsigte, die eenheid is skoon en goed ingerig. Bestuur is baie hulpvaardig en vriendelik en ek sal bitter graag meer tyd hier wil spandeer. Kan met goeie gemoed die verblyf aanbeveel.

Rustig.

Ons het ons naweek by Old Sam's Cottage geniet, maar hierdie plek sal my ongelukkig nooit weer sien nie. Die stort was een te veel vir my! Om die donkie te stook is maklik en dit maak die water heerlik warm. In die badkamer is die storie heel anders! Daar is geen druk in die kraan nie, so die water drup-drup net deur die stortkop - dit maak dit feitlik onmoontlik om behoorlik te stort. Ons het 'n blikemmer van die kombuis gevat, dit vol water gemaak by die wasbak en dan gebruik om ons self af te spoel. Die warm water is bruin en dit voel vuil - daar is sediment (of iets anders, ek weet nie) in die water wat agter bly op jou vel en jou hare. Dit is aaklig! Die stort se water het ook nie weggeloop nie, so na een persoon "gestort" het was die badkamer se vloer sopnat. Ons het ook 'n hande-handdoek in die badkamer gemis. Die beskrywing van die plek noem dat daar 'n binnenshuise braai (i.e. kaggel) is, maar dit is verkeerd. Daar is slegs 'n buite-braai - die is darem onderdak en beskut teen die wind. Ek kan darem sê dat die plek mooi skoon was en en al die kombuis toebehore wat ons nodig gehad het was daar. Ek stel voor toekomstige besoekers vat hul eie flitse en liggies saam aangesien die wat verskaf word nie genoeg is nie.

Old Sam's Cottage's response

Ons het ongelukkig geen klagtes van jul ontvang gedurende die tyd wat jul op die plaas gekuier het nie. Ek kon dan die druk dadelik uitsorteer, n hande-handdoek bring en ekstra ligte. Die water is vir n ruk bruin totdat die eerste water deurloop. Ek sal egter aandag aan alles gee. Ek is jammer ons huis het nie aan jou verwagting voldoen nie.

Wonderful getaway out away from the city.

We were pleasantly surprised with how nice we stayed in this small but well equipped cottage. It was cold and rainy when we were there, but the bedding was lovely. There is a gas heater that we didn't even need to use. Be prepared for there being no cell phone reception at times, although there is free Wi-Fi. For half of the 3 days we were basically without signal. The donkey warms the water, you just have to be patient - can take up to 3 hours. So, if you love all the city facilities of electricity, this might not work for you, but for us it was great. Must be great if you can swim and row in the river in summer.

Wonderlike wegbreek uit die stad.

Ons was aangenaam verras met hoe lekker ons in hierdie klein, maar goed toegeruste huisie gebly het. Dit was koud en reënerig toe ons daar was, maar die beddegoed was heerlik snoesig. Daar is 'n gasverwarmer wat ons nie eers nodig gehad het om te gebruik nie. Wees voorbereid daarop daar daar met tye geen selfoonontvangs is nie, alhoewel daar gratis Wi-Fi is. Ons was vir basies die helfte van ons 3 dae heeltemal sonder sein. Die donkie maak die water heerlik warm, mens moet net geduldig wees - kan tot 3 ure vat. Dus, as jy hou van al die stadsgeriewe van elektrisiteit, gaan hierdie dalk nie vir jou werk nie, maar vir ons was dit heerlik. Moet wonderlik wees as mens in die somer nog in die rivier ook kan swem en roei.

Goed vir die siel.

Die cottage is perfek vir enige een wat wil ontspan. Ons was daar op 'n koel naweek, maar sal graag weer wil gaan vir langer sodat ons van die kano's kan gebruik maak. Die huisie is was lekker, maar ons was bietjie in die donker gelaat. Daar was nie aanwysings of verduideliking van die gasstofie en donkie (om stort water warm te maak) nie. En 'n tekort aan kerse en 'n warm kombers. Daar was ook nie tee of melk nie net 'n leë melkhouer. Ek het nie terugvoer gekry op enige eposse voor ons bespreking nie. Gelukkig maak die rustigheid, pragtige omgewing, netjiese huisie en lekker beddegoed op vir die tekortkominge. Sal beslis weer gaan!

Omring deur die natuur en stile. Perfek!

Jou asem word weggeslaap deur die pragtige natuur en stilte. Sam's Cottage is die perfekte wegkomplekkie. Die natuurlewe (bokke, zebras, voëls) en die rivier met die kano's en braaiplekkie was 'n ekstra bederf. Ideaal vir mense wat hou van braai, stap en rustig wees. Definitief 'n besoek werd!

Cecelia, dit was baie lekker om by julle te kuier. Ons het dit baie geniet en gaan definitief probeer om weer in Sam se huisie te kuier. Die Koring en Canolalande was so mooi. Skape, 'n hele klomp kraanvoëls en tarentale op die lande was aanskoulik. Cecelia was 'n baie aangename gasvrou.

A tranquil atmosphere in which you can completely relax.

We We enjoyed every moment, the tranquility, the eland and zebra grazing right up to the doorstep, the beautiful and artistic interior decoration of the rooms. And then finally, the nostalgia - the smell of oil lamps took me back to my childhood.

'n Rustige atmosfeer waarin mens volkome kan ontspan.

Ons het elke oomblik geniet, die rustigheid, die elande en zebras wat wei tot teen die stoep, die baie mooi en kunstige binneversiering van die vertrekke. En dan laaste die nostalgie - die reuk van die olielampe het my terug gevoer na my kinderdae.

Was die beste aandjie van my lewe. So rustig en asemrowend onder die sterre! Die swem in die rivier was vreeslik lekker en mal oor die idee dat jy die donkie moet stook vir warm water. Het 'n onvergeetlike wegbreek gehad. Sal die plek beslis aanbeveel. En baie vriendelike mense!

We had a very nice stay. Wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy the cottage and area more.

The cottage is very nicely equipped and for those in need of a getaway from the city, power and TV, this place is ideal. I think it can be very nice between the game. Just want to recommend that the route to Old Sam's Cottage as well as the directions need to be better and sent with confirmation of the booking. The distances on the confirmation note is completely incorrect. From the Bredasdorp side it's approximately 6 km after the tracks and 600 m before the Kars river. From the Swellendam side it's approximately 600 m after the Kars river. Turn into the gravel road at coordinates S34º29'28.6" E020º05'24.4". As soon as you've turned off you keep straight until you get to the double windmill's gate on the right hand side. At the gate there are two signs with Old Sam's Cottage on. Coordinates of Old Sam's Cottage is S34º29'42.0" E020º07'07.7".

Ons het baie lekker gebly. Wens ons kon langer kuier om die cottage en omgewing te geniet.

Die cottage is baie lekker ingerig en vir die wat lekker wil wegbreek van stad, krag en TV is die plekkie ideaal. Dink dit kan lekker wees tussen die wild. Wil net aanbeveel dat roete na Old Sam's Cottage beter op internet asook op aanwysings met bevestiging gestuur word. Die afstande op bevestigingsnota is totaal verkeerd. Van Bredasdorp se kant is ongeveer 6 km na spoor en 600 meter voor Karsrivier. Van Swellendam se kant af is dit 600 meter na Karsrivier. Draai in by gruisspad by koördinate S34º29'28.6" E020º05'24.4". Sodra afgedraai ry reguit aan tot jy by dubbele wildkamp se hek aan die regterkant kom. By die hek is twee borde met Old Sam's Cottage. Koördinate vir Old Sam's Cottage is S34º29'42.0" E020º07'07.7".
