The perfect getaway for a married couple to find themselves again!

Beautiful scenery and quite environment. The bed was very comfortable and the aircon made sleeping very easy. Chalet was clean and equipped with everything that you might need in the kitchen.

Fantastiese wegbreek juweel in die Bosveld.

Eenheid is netjies en prakties uiteengesit. Alles is nuut. Dis ’n rustige plek met eie braai geriewe en die swembad is beslis ’n nodige lafenis op daai tipiese warm Bosveld dae.

Bushveld, braai, potjie, animals, small spiders, swimming pool, mountain stairs, animal sounds and much more.

Nicole and Blair were our hosts. Very friendly and helpful. If you want to unwind and relax in nature Shondoro Mountain Retreat is the answer. From lazing away around the pool, walking in the mountains, relaxing around the fire till late at night, listening to the bird sounds and just having fun. Had some hilarious encounters with the little spiders.

Fantasties en spesiaal.

Hartlik ontvang deur Rory en Yvette. Besonderse omgewing. Heerlik gekuier. Eenheid was netjies en gerieflik. Was baie spesiaal. Die volgende kan dalk na gekyk word ─ duideliker aanwysingsborde by die grootpad wat die afdraai wys. GPS-koördinate moet reggestel word. Nog aanwysingsborde op die grondpad, mens is onseker van waar jy afdraai plaas toe. Spieël in die kamer naby 'n prop vir haredroogblaas.

Rustigheid van die Bosveld en natuur is onverbeterlik!

Shondoro is 'n pragtige klein juweeltjie gekoester tussen die Waterberge. Ons is hartlik ontvang deur die eienaars en het heerlik gekuier. Sal weer bespreek in die toekoms. Aanbevelings wat ons voorstel om dit nog beter te maak. Voorsien asb. 'n besem in die chalets asook 'n vollengte spieël in Klipspringer en Buschbuck. 'n Koffieplunger sal gaaf wees en behoorlike wynglase en braaitang. Dit sal lekker wees as die braai en vuurmaakplek elke oggend skoongemaak word.

Lovely and relaxing.

I thought the accommodation would be against a mountainside or on top of te mountain, not at the bottom of the kloof. I expected walking routes in the mountains, which there were none of.

This review has been translated,click hereto view the original version.

Heerlik rustig.

Ek het gedink die akkommodasie sou teen 'n berghang of bo-op die berg wees en nie net onder in die kloof nie. Ek het ook bergstappaadjies verwag wat daar glad nie is nie.

Rustige, veilige wegbreek vir 'n langnaweek. Regte plek om naby aan die natuur te wees.

Ons chalet was volledig toegerus met alles wat ons nodig gehad het. Die voëllewe was fantasties en ons kon veilig rondloop op die plaas om die natuur te geniet. Ons beveel Shondoro met graagte aan as iemand graag in die natuur wil gaan ontspan.

Ware wegbreek.

As jy regtig wil wegbreek is Shondoro die plek vir jou. 8 km van die hoofpad af, 20 km van die naaste dorp af. As jy tussen die koppe ingaan is daar ook nie meer selfoonsein nie. Die perfekte wegbreek om kop skoon te maak. Onthou net om ordentlike loopskoene, verkyker en kamera saam te neem. Ligging kry 4 punte omdat die tiener oor selontvangs gekla het.

Pragtige ligging; Prentjiemooi omgewing. Baie privaat en die moeite werd om te besoek.

Die chalet is is baie netjies ingerig en voorsien van alle geriewe - daar is mooi staproetes. Die plek is uitgeknip vir 'n gesinskuier. Ek sal weer gaan met 'n groter geselskap. Die lapa met 'n braaivleisplek en boma is uitnemend geskik vir 'n heerlike laataandkuier om 'n vuur. Sorg vir genoeg kosvoorrade, omdat dit nogal 'n entjie is om dorp toe te ry. Die roete na die plaas is nie heeltemal geskik vir motors soos myne wat 'n "bietjie laag" lê nie.

We had a great time, the owners, Rory and Yvette, are wonderful. We left some of our stuff there by accident and they helped us to get it back.

Rory and Yvette went out of their way to make our stay as comfy as possible. We enjoyed cycling and hiking, and the nights were wonderful. We will definitely be back.

Baie lekker verblyf met wonderlike eienaars, Rory en Yvette, wat moeite gedoen het om goed wat ons daar vergeet het terug te besorg.

Rory en Yvette het uit hulle pad gegaan om ons verblyf so aangenaam moontlik te maak. Ons het dit geniet om fiets te ry en te stap en die aande was fantasties. Ons sal beslis weer gaan.

The loveliest place between the mountains. Unbelievably quiet. Yvette and Rory welcomed us and made us feel at home, what a lovely couple! I can strongly recommend Shondoro for those who just want to escape everyday reality.

Dit is onbeskryflik.

Dit is die lieflikste plekkie tussen die berge. die stilte is onbeskryflik. Yvette en Rory het ons persoonlik ontvang en onmiddellik tuis laat voel, wat 'n lieflike paartjie. Ek kan Shondoro ten sterkste aanbeveel vir diegene wat net wil wegkom van die alledaagse gejaag.

Rory en Yvette het ons onmiddellik baie tuis laat voel. Die fasiliteite is baie goed en die diens uitstekend. Dit was heerlik om so in die natuur te kan ontspan sonder om te bekommer oor die res van die wêreld. Ons sal beslis weer die pad Shondoro toe vat.

Beautiful, tranquil setting with lovely, caring hosts that go a long way to rejuvenating the soul and spirit.

Thank you for offering a tranquil and beautiful space to relax and rejuvenate. Rory and Yvette are lovely hosts and the short breakaway did wonders to revive my spirit, body and mind. Shondoro Mountain Retreat is located on a beautiful farm that provides a safe and quiet space to relax. There are several short hiking trails and a swimming pool akin to a natural pool with a view to the mountains. One finds oneself in the center of nature that drowns out all noise. An added, fortunate bonus was the beautiful lightning display with the mountains in the backdrop on the final evening of my stay. Shondoro Mountain Retreat is a must-go if you need some solitude in a serene and quiet setting.

Peaceful, but not really value for money.

We had a good stay, thought the farm was larger and there's also no animals visible. Our geyser did not work and we had to walk to another every time we wanted a shower. The first night we were without power for a little while, there are no lights outside so remember a flashlight.

This review has been translated,click hereto view the original version.

Rustig, maar nie waarde vir geld regtig nie.

Lekker gebly, gedink die plaas is groter en daar was ook glad nie diere sigbaar nie, ons geiser het nie gewerk nie en moes elke keer na 'n ander toe stap vir 'n stort. Die eerste aand was ons 'n rukkie sonder krag, geen ligte buite om die huis nie, onthou maar 'n flits.

Shondoro Mountain Retreat's response

Dis so jammer dat gaste nie hulle ongelukkigheid deel as hulle hier is nie en dit na die tyd gaan doen. Ons was ook nie bewus dat die geyser vroeër die dag gebars het nie en het 20 keer aangebied om julle na 'n ander cottage toe te skuif, maar julle het geweier en was vreeslik gelukkig om by die cottage langsaan te gaan stort. Julle het selfs versoek om langer gebly en ons het dit met graagte toegelaat. Die diere op die plaas is wild en ons kan nie voorspel of julle hulle gaan sien nie, soos verduidelik. Aangesien julle 'n paar keer gesê het dat julle beslis weer gaan kom hoop ons ons sien julle weer hier!

Shondoro provided everything that your advertisement promised - a wonderful, bushveld retreat.

Shondoro Mountain Retreat is a well-run and peaceful country destination that offers basic, attractive and comfortable accomodation. The friendly, helpful hosts in Rory and Yvette, who made sure that our needs were met, but were never intrusive. We loved the opportunity to connect with the natural bushveld, including a wide variety of birds and a range of antelope and other wild-life. The walks and trails were enjoyable and well marked. Our few days there left us feeling refreshed and relaxed in body, mind and spirit!

Elke sent en kilometer werd.

Shondoro is presies wat die naam sê: 'n retreat! Dit is lekker weggesteek en mens voel regtig afgesonder. Daar is min of geen selfoonontvangs wat nog meer help. Jy kyk nie eers na jou horlosie nie. Dit is vreeslik ontspannend en mens kry regtig dit reg om net af te skakel. Die chalets is baie netjies en slim uit eengesit met al die geriewe wat mens nodig het. Ek het regtig van die moeite gehou wat die eienaars gedoen het om bietjie meer inligting oor die gebied en sy geskiedenis bekend te maak. Hulle diens en gasvryheid is besonders. Die buitelig is pragtig en ek is seker dit sal nog meer wees sodra dit goed gereën het en die bergstroom wat verby die chalets vloei ook weer vol is. Kees se kind is ook opmerklik teenwoordig in die gebied, ook so die bokke en verskeidenheid voëls wat kom besoek aflê. Dit is toeganklik en ook nie ver om na heen te reis nie. Beslis 'n plek om weer te besoek.

By Shondoro het ons presies gekry wat ons gaan soek het: 'n wegbreek van die stad se gejaag. Jy kan ure net sit om jou eie Boma met 'n vuurtjie en gesels. Ek was mal oor my kombuis buite!

Heerlike ontspanning in die berge! Ons was opsoek na rustigheid en het dit gevind! Ons het in die veld gaan stap en baie voëls gehoor en gesien en die rustigheid van die bosveld terdeë geniet. Die bokkies was skaam, maar ons het daarin geslaag om 'n paar mooi foto's te neem. Baie dankie Rory en Yvette vir jul gasvryheid en die netjiese chalet waarin ons gebly het.

Beautiful and absolutely fantastic!

We were so warmly welcomed as guests - and overwhelmed by their hospitality. The cottage was so clean and user-friendly and was equipped with everything you could possibly need. We felt safe and secure and were surrounded by the most beautiful bushveld scenery and the surrounding areas which completely made us feel at home and at peace. We were well-informed about the rules and regulations as well as any wild animals that might be a safety risk to us. All the different plants and trees were shown to us and we felt so secure in nature. We certainly would visit again and we would recommend this beautiful, peaceful, clean and secure accommodation to anybody that seeks rest and tranquility in the safety and hospitality of Rory and Yvette. We felt rested when we left!

Luukse verblyf naby aan die natuur.

Foto's en die inligting op Shondoro se webblad kan nie reg laat geskied aan Shondoro nie. In die klip-chalets met hul grasdakke en oop leefareas voel mens deurgaans deel van die natuur, terwyl die slaap- en badkamer luuks ingerig is. Die gasheer en gasvrou is hartlik en maak seker dat 'n mens tuis voel en alles het wat jy nodig het, sonder om op jou privaatheid inbreuk te maak. Daar is net drie chalets, wat ver genoeg van mekaar is dat ons die ander gaste net een keer van 'n afstand gesien het. Ons het heerlik gerus en ontspan. Shondoro bied fantastiese waarde vir geld en is die perfekte plek vir 'n romantiese of gesinswegbreek. Ons kom beslis weer - dankie!

It was pure perfection and serenity with every possible need catered for.

I was looking for a serene environment where I could enjoy the terrain and ambience of the Waterberg and have the freedom to explore at my leisure. I was also looking for bush accommodation with creature comforts yet still maintain the rustic beauty that should be expected. All my expectations were met and more. I had the most beautiful, serene, peaceful weekend where my soul was content.

Worth every penny spent

A beautiful quiet place for you to relax, getting there was part of the fun, use a 4x4 my polo stugled a bit.the place was clean and tidy, the owners were very helpful and very kind. A few hiking trails and off grid mountain climbing is allowed, just inform the owners. Theres a nice cool swinning pool, and a river plus mini waterfall which you can hear throughout the day. If you want to have privacy and to break away from society. Or like me take your girlfriend for a romantic getaway, this is the place. Thanks Rory and Yvette the stay was great. Hendri and Amthel

Roy en Yvette is baie vriendlik en gaan uit hulle pad uit om die gaste gelukkig te maak.

Die swembad kort beslis 'n bietjie aandag. Die tekort aan selfoon-opvangs maak dat 'n mens bietjie onveilig voel.

Ons wou absolute stilte hê oor nuwejaar, sonder ge-doef doef en klappers, en Shondoro was perfek!

Ons het net die mooi klanke van die natuur gehoor, en kon heerlik stap op die verskillende staproetes. Shondoro is 'n paradys vir enige natuurliefhebber. Dankie aan Yvette en Rory vir hul vriendelike gasvryheid.

This really is a mountain retreat!

I've been to places calling themselves a mountain retreat. in the past, but after you discover Shondoro you discover how a mountain retreat really should be!!! We have really enjoyed our stay and rest, and will go back soon!!

Shondoro Mountain Retreat is a beautiful quiet place in the bush.

If you like a quiet place in the bush with total privacy, Shondoro is the place. There are 3 stone chalets set nicely apart from each other. There is a kitchen separate from the bedroom with everything you need cutlery crockery and a fridge/freezer. The bedroom is very tastefully decorated with an on-suite shower and toilet. Theres a beautiful big area to sit and eat under a magnificent big tree. There's a boma to braai. Perfect! There are different walks you can go on: We went on 1 walk and saw interesting trees. The pool looked lovely but maybe a bit cool to swim just yet. Yvette and Rory met us on arrival and its always nice to be welcomed. We will be definitely be back.

Hier kan 'n mens die natuur en rustigheid beleef.

Ons was aangenaam verras gewees. Dit is 'n pragtige plek, baie netjies, skoon en baie goed toegerus. Ons sal enige iemand aanbeveel om daar te gaan ontspan. Die aand wat ons die uile gaan soek het maak dit net so spesiaal. Rory en Yvette se persoonlike verwelkoming laat mens sommer net baie spesiaal voel. Sal hulle definitief weer besoek!

Shondoro is the perfect retreat ~ quiet and secluded ~ we plan to make it our ‘get-away-from-it-all’ place!

We appreciated the fine balance you have achieved by providing the essentials for comfort whilst still maintaining the feel of being in the bush! We were impressed with our cottage’s cleanliness; the quality of bed linen and bath towels; the quantity of super-hot water for showers and washing up; and the layout of the kitchen and living areas ~ both under thatch and under the stars

'n Lieflike, rustige omgewing. Ons het 'n heerlike rusnaweek gehad.

Die drie huisies is nogal naby aan mekaar. Ons was baie gelukkig om alleen daar te wees, so ons het 'n wonderlike naweek gehad. Die omgewing is "stunning", en die huisie baie skoon en heel gerieflik.

Baie rustig en baie mooi.

Die stilte, die natuur, die rivier, die veiligheid, ens. was eenvoudig wonderlik. Ek was alleen, maar het nooit bang gevoel nie. Ons het heerlik geslaap en heerlik gerus. Yvette, Rory en Matthew is pragtige mense!

Asemrowende natuurskoon, vriendelike personeel, en die ideale stukkie wegbreek-paradys.

Baie dankie Rory en Yvette vir 'n wonderlike wegbreeknaweek. Die algehele ondervinding was een van rustigheid. Die natuurskoon was onbeskryflik mooi en uitmuntende diens is gelewer. Ons sal beslis weer kom kuier.

Wonderful place

Bathroom a little cramped, toilet needs a curtain for privacy! A true retreat for nature lovers and chosen because we could afford it with pensioners' discount. Would like more and longer hikes.

Genotvol.

Al wat kort is 'n gordyn tussen die slaapkamer en toilet. Andersins, puik met gasvrye gasheer en -vrou.

Ons het 'n welverdiende bederf-naweek spandeer in die pragtige Waterberge.

Ons is hartlik ontvang en behoorlik bederf in die rustige omgewing van die Waterberge, waar ons na hartelus kon ontspan. Die chalets is baie netjies en ten volle toegerus. Ons het 'n skemerkelkie geniet by 'n asemrowende uitkykpunt oor die Sewe Susters - 'n deel van die Waterberge. Baie dankie Yvette en Rory, julle sien ons weer!

Fantasties, skoon en rustig met goeie, behulpsame diens! Waarde vir geld.

Ons kan Shondoro aanbeveel; die geriewe is 5-ster en Yvette en Rory het ons baie welkom laat voel. Nogmaals dankie!

Waarde vir geld uit en uit!

Die plekkie is geleë in 'n vallei met die mooiste uitsig oor die berge en seisoensriviertjie. Die eenhede is baie skoon en baie privaat. Dit is ideaal vir 'n paartjie of klein familie. Die eienaars is uiters vriendelik en gaan uit hul pad om jou tevrede te hou. Daar is lekker stapplek vir die beginner tot ekspert. Daar is ook lieflike voëls en pragtige natuurgeluide. Die boma is lekker snoesig vir die wintermaande, maar ook lekker om onder te braai in die somer. Ons kon geen fout vind nie en dit het presies aan al ons behoeftes voldoen. Ons sal definitief teruggaan. As jy 'n privaat wegbreekplekkie soek, in die bosveld waar stilte en die natuur jou omvou, is hierdie die plek vir jou!
