Excellent.

We didn't spend much time at the cottage as we were out sightseeing in the day. We would have liked to have spent a day in the beautiful garden relaxing. The cottage was equipped with everything that was required. The cottage was very clean and comfortable. The host and her husband were fantastic and very helpful.

Privaatheid en skoon.

Lekker koffie, beskuit, vrugtesap en yogurt elke dag. Dit was 'n besonderse verrassing elke dag. Gasvrou was vriendelik en behulpsaam. Selfs vir ons handdoeke by die swembad uitgesit. Definitief aan te beveel

Uitstekende plek, pragtige tuin.

Die mooiste plek waar ons nog oornag het. Die trappies deur die tuin is soos 'n stappie deur 'n stukkie reënwoud in die berge. Die eenheid is baie stylvol en netjies en het alles wat nodig is. Baie netjiese area en tog naby alles. Ons sal enige tyd weer hier wil oorbly. Nora en Dries, dankie vir julle gasvryheid.

Excellent place, beautiful garden.

The most beautiful place we have ever stayed. The steps through the garden are like a walk through a piece of rainforest in the mountains. The unit is very stylish and tidy and has everything you need. Very neat area and yet close to everything. We would love to stay here again anytime. Nora and Dries, thank you for your hospitality.

Pragtige plekkie, ten volle toegerus.

Heeltemal privaat, in 'n pragtige tuin geleë. Gasvrou het geen moeite ontsien om hulp te verleen nie. Daar is met liefde aan die fynste detail gedink om ons as gaste tuis te laat voel.

Pragtige, rustige plekkie.

Raka Cottage het aan al ons verwagtinge voldoen en meer. Al is daar 'n hele paar trappies op na die Cottage was dit deur en deur die moeite werd. Die vriendelike eienaars was heeltyd "hands on" en het gehelp en voorsien in ons ekstra benodighede. Tuin is ongelooflik mooi en het ons dit geniet on daar te sit en 'n vleisie te braai. Sal hul vir seker aanbeveel.

Beautiful, peaceful place.

Raka Cottage met all our expectations and more. Even though there are quite a few steps up to the Cottage, it was thoroughly worth it. The friendly owners were "hands on" all the time and helped and provided us with extra necessities. Garden is incredibly beautiful and we enjoyed sitting there and grilling a little meat. Will recommend them for sure.

'n Baie mooi en gerieflike oornagplek!

'n Uitstekende plek om te bly as jy die Laeveld bietjie wil verken! 'n Baie private, netjiese en goed toegeruste kothuisie in 'n tipiese Laeveldtuin tussen die rotse en groot bome. Vars vrugte en blomme laat mens dadelik tuis en welkom voel.

A very nice and comfortable place to stay!

An excellent place to stay if you want to explore the Lowveld a bit! A very private, neat and well-equipped cottage in a typical Lowveld garden among the rocks and large trees. Fresh fruit and flowers immediately make you feel at home and welcome.

My verblyf was uit die boonste rakke.

Raka Cottage is uitstekende akkommodasie. Die cottage is baie stylvol met baie goeie linne en al die nodige geriewe. Norah was baie vriendelik en ondersteunend en dit was 'n plesier om haar as gasvrou te hê. Ek kan Raka Cottage met vrymoedigheid aanbeveel.

Dries en Norah is uitstekende gashere. Ons het heerlik gerieflik gebly, en al die ekstra bederfies maak dit 'n heerlike plekkie om te bly. Baie netjies en skoon met veilige parkering.

Ons het 'n heerlike verblyf by Raka Cottage gehad. Die kothuis beskik oor als wat jy nodig het, tot 'n haardroër. Sy voorsien koffie/tee, beskuit, vrugte, muesli en yogurt vir ontbyt. Die kombuis is volledig toegerus vir selfsorg.

Wow, wow, wow.

Highly recommend staying at Raka Cottage, from the minute we arrived we were treated like royalty. The cottage was nice and clean and surrounded by all the trees really had a most relaxing atmosphere. Fresh fruit daily and a muesli and yogurt breakfast with a juice. Norah was a real help when we needed to find specific shops and every time we returned to a little chocolate on our pillows. Norah we will definitely be seeing you again.
