Huis was netjies en skoon, maar die lodge en woonstel nie so veel nie.

Die kinders het die groot grasperk geniet. Die breekware en eetgerei van die lodge was nie genoeg vir 6 mense nie en dit was gekraak en gechip. Die foto's van die binnegeriewe is baie misleidend en my eerlike opinie is dat die prys te hoog is vir die geriewe wat gebied word. Ek dink dit sal net hoflik wees om ten minste jou gaste in kennis te stel dat daar op Sondae 'n kerkdiens gehou word in die stoor reg langs die huis. Ons was 'n groot groep en het die hele huis asook die lodge en die flat geokkupeer. Die huis was netjies en alle beddegoed was skoon maar die huis is baie vol en die meubels en beddens is al deurgesit en -geslaap. Die kat wat in die huis woon was soms 'n pyn omdat hy op die kaste spring om kos in die hande te kry. Dit sal ook vir my beter wees om vooraf te weet van die kat, kat-allergie is algemeen. Die lodge was teleurstellend en kan regtig nie 'n lodge genoem word nie. Alhoewel die beddegoed en handdoeke skoon was, was daar groot vlekke op die matte en bo teen die plafon kon mens sien dat dit nie onlangs skoongemaak is nie, die stort is vol muf bo teen die mure, die stort was net nie bruikbaar nie, krane maak moeilik toe. Die inloop van water in die toilet is baie stadig. Die kombuis van die lodge se kasdeure en laaie is gebreek en die bekers en borde gekraak en gechip. Daar is nie genoeg messe, vurke en borde vir 6 mense nie. Daar was geen afdrooglappe nie en die asblik is 'n swartsak wat aan 'n hak hang. Om die mikrogolfoond te gebruik moet die yskas se kragprop uitgetrek word en die mikrogolfoond ingeplug word. Die yskas is baie klein vir 6 mense. Die flat (woonstel) was baie beknop en daar is nie eers plek vir jou tasse in die kamer waar die enkelbeddens is nie. Die badkamerdeur van die flat skep regtig nie die indruk van privaatheid nie. Buite was baie lekker en die kinders het die groot grasperk baie geniet. Dit was vir ons baie sleg toe daar vreemde mense Sondagoggend tussen ons beweeg het om stoele aan te dra na die stoor waar daar 'n kerkdiens gehou is. Van die stoele wat vir ons gebruik op die stoep was, is weggedra. Dit was ook regtig onaangenaam dat die kerkgangers heeltyd tussen ons moes deurloop om die toilet te gebruik. Ek weet dis 'n werkende plaas maar dis darem nie nodig om met die motorfiets tussen ons deur te ry waar die kinders op die gras speel en met hul fietse ry nie. Daar is nie eintlik diefwering voor die vensters en deure nie. Venster kan nie almal maklik oop en toe maak nie. Die lodge en die huis se kombuiswasbakke se pype het water gelek.

This accomodation is the bare minimum and well below standard compared to others.

Compared to others this accommodation is not worth it. There was no host to welcome us, no one around on departure either. We stayed in the Hunters Lodge and it was basic, to say the least. Poor cutlery and crockery, all the furniture and bedding is very old. We did know there was no food available so we brought our own, but don't offer coffee if there is no sugar, milk or anything else. Overall the farm is not well looked after, flies were a problem due to dirty paddocks.

Goeie oornag tussen Kaap en Guateng.

Stillewaters gee baie aandag aan vriendelikheid en netheid. Dit was lekker om by die bestemming aan te kom. Rustige plaas atmosfeer. Kan dalk net meer doen om klankdigtheid te verbeter tussen buite woonstelle. Dis asof jy in dieselfde vertrek is as die ander gesin. Aanbeveling vir reisigers: Maak seker jy kry iets om te eet voor jy in Richmond aankom (ons het in Colesberg gestop daarvoor). Daar was nie eetplekke oop toe ons arriveer nie.

Die ligging is nie ideaal nie. Dis net anderkant 'n informele nedersetting.

Die kamer self het baie potential, mens verwag egter vir die prys wat jy betaal, die potential klaar daar is. Alles is oud, maar alles werk. Chris is baie vriendelik en behulpsaam. Dit lyk soos verskillende kamers op die foto's, maar al die beddens is in een groot vertrek.

Ontevrede.

Ons is baie ontevrede met hierdie oorslaapplaas. Ons was 'n geselskap van 7 en het 'n Jagters Lodge verwag wat eenkant was. Chris was baie vriendelik by die aankoms maar die geriewe was baie teleurstellend. Daar was nie 'n ketel nie en moes ek tussen die hoofhuis en die lodge in die reen skarrel vir 'n ketel, braaitang, vleisbak en borde wat nie in die lodge was nie en wat ook nie beskikbaar was in die huis nie. Die oond was ondraaglik vuil en die glas stukkend. Die yskassie was te klein om ons kruideniers in te bêre. Die grootste probleem was egter die stoele wat vol hondehare was, vuil badkamer en beddens met vlooie, bedgoggas en bosluise in! My hele lyf was nog 'n week later vol bytplekke van die goggas in die bed en moes ek medikasie gaan koop om aan te smeer!. Daar was ook geen water na 9 uur om die toilet te spoel nie en was die baie ongerieflik vir ons geselskap van 4 volwassenes en 3 tieners wat een badkamer moes deel! Ons het egter plaasdiere verwag maar daar slegs 'n paar skape, hoenders en 'n perd in baie swak kondisie. Ek sal glad nie hierdie plek vir enige iemand aanbeveel nie al is dit net vir een aand se oorslaap.

Teleurstellend. Die webfoto's verteenwoordig nie die huidige stand van sake nie.

Die kontakpersoon was nie daar nie en ook nie telefonies beskikbaar nie. Die sleutel kon nie gevind word nie en ek is in die ander woonstel geakkommodeer. Die woonstel se yskas was nie aan nie en ook nie naby 'n kragpunt nie. Die mat in die slaapkamer is vol vuil kolle, die badkamerteëls was vuil en by die wasbak was slegs 'n ou, gebruikte koekie seep. Dit skep die indruk van 'n onvoltooide projek. Dit was andersins skoon en die bed was gerieflik. Die dam was halfleeg en vuil, die erf verwaarloos. Die enigste diere wat ek gewaar het was skape, 'n klompie werfhoenders en 'n verlore kat. Glad nie soos geadverteer nie.

Ons het goed geslaap, maar ek dink daar kan baie meer van die plek gemaak word.

1) Die feit dat daar nie kaart fasiliteite is, was problematies. 2) Ons was in woonstel en die voordeur kon nie behoorlik sluit. 3) Die lig in die hoofslaapkamer het nie gewerk. 4) Daar kan meer kragpunte wees veral om selfone te laai. 5) Die omgewing is baie donker.

Stillewaters bied bekostigbare oornagverblyf in 'n veilige plaasomgewing naby Richmond maar ver genoeg sodat mens nié die trokke op die N1 hoor nie.

Die eenheid kan doen met opknapping. Veral die badkamertjie wat uit die kombuis bereik moet word. Die plastiekstortgordyn is oud en halfpad stukkend gekeur. Bo die wasbak is nog net tekens dat daar eens 'n spieël was. Geen ander spieël ook in die eenheid. Vlieë is volop aangesien dit op 'n werkende plaas geleë is. Die dubbelbed het darem 'n plat laken ook gehad behalwe die warm duvet maar die 2 enkelbeddens waar 2 bejaarde familielede moes slaap, het net warm duvets opgehad.

Ons oorbly daar was lekker.

Ek was aangenaam verras oor Stillewaters. Die Karooplaas is ‘n entjie uit die dorp uit. Ons het laatmiddag gearriveer. Die ou plaashuis het ‘n breë stoep en ons kon daar sit en ‘n koffie geniet terwyl ons uitkyk oor die tuin, die vlaktes en die berge. Die skape het rustig gewei en ons het selfs ‘n skilpad gesien net anderkant die muur. Die beste van alles was ‘n reënbui wat uitgesak het. Toe kom die Sonsondergang. Van die ander gaste het gebraai, maar omdat ons vroeër by Vetmuis Plaaskombuis geëet het, het ons die geleentheid gehad om die dag sy buiging te sien maak voor hy groet. Die sonsondergang was onvergeetlik mooi en toe ons ‘n laaste maal op die stoep gaan sit het ons vlugtig ‘n uil gesien. Die kamers is ruim, skoon en netjies en die oudhede wat deur die huis gebruik word was soos die geskiedenis, baie interessante om na te kyk. Die nagstilte is terapeuties en ons het heerlik geslaap. Die personeel is vriendelik en behulpsaam. Ek sal beslis Stillewaters aanbeveel vir diegene wat ‘n liefde en waardering het vir die Karoo, ou huise, oudhede en stilte.

Fotos is misleidend.

Ons het by Stillewaters oorgeslaap op pad kaap toe. Die foto's moes 'n hele paar jaar gelede geneem gewees het. Die plek het baie potensiaal, maar is vervalle en stowwerig. Ons het die 4-sleeper aparte eenheid bespreek. Met aankoms het ons 'n kamer in die huis gekry met slegs slaapplek vir 3. Die beddegoed, handdoeke en matrasse is oud en ongemaklik. Daar is beter opsies in Richmond om van te kies.

Fantastiese en rustige plek om asem te skep op die lang pad. Daar is niks so rustig as 'n plaas nie.

Chris het uit sy pad gegaan om ons te laat tuis voel. Die diere en voëls het 'n wonderlike atmosfeer geskep. Die kombuis, badkamer, en sitkamer geriewe was goed gewees. Ongelukkig was daar geen warm water in die kombuis nie. Die warm water in die badkamer in ons kamer was ook slegs genoeg vir een persoon se bad.

Ons het gald nie koue water gehad in die badkamer nie. Net een flou ou straaltjie. Ek het aangemeld by die skakelpersoon, wie gesê het hy sou daarna kom kyk. Hy kom nou nog.

A lovely farm adventure!

Pretty, peaceful environment and a lovely adventure in the farm room! Would maybe have wanted a mirror in the bathroom.

Pragtige, rustige omgewing en 'n lekker avontuur in die plaaskamer! Sal dalk net 'n spieël wou gehad het in die badkamer.

Plek baie potential. Het egter 'n hand of hulp nodig vir finale afronding. Kort desperaat bietjie verf. Lekkasie in kamer waar ons geslaap het. Regte plaasatmosfeer wat ons geniet het.

Lovely quiet destination out of town.

I was a bit concerned about the security of my loaded bakkie, but nothing happened. The manager, Chris was very helpful and promised to check on the vehicle during the night when he had to get up to move the pivot irrigation. I felt sure he was trustworthy, and I had no problems. There were some flies and mosquitoes, so some gauze on some of the opening windows would help keep them out. Being hot it was necessary to keep windows open at night. Burglar bars on the opening windows would also improve the perception of good security.

Baie lekker met die mooiste sonsondergang.

Lekker plaasatmosfeer, lekker stil en rustig. Ek dink ons het net op die verkeerde tyd oornag, na die bietjie reën wat Richmond gehad het, was daar 'n muskiete plaag, en kon ons glad nie slaap nie. Maar verder baie mooi.

Rustic but rough.

Although very clean and neat, with every convenience one would want for an overnight stay, it is apparent that Stillewaters' hey day is past. We did not feel safe here. It is a pity as this is a beautiful historic home.

Stillewaters Self-catering 's response

Louise,

Thank you for the reply.

We like to improve whatever we can and therefore would like to understand better what you suggest we should improve.

The building was built in 1880, we like it to be kept that way we don't like to replace the fixings with more modern things one does not actually need. We have installed internet, we do not have a TV and many guests are grateful for that because it gives them an opportunity to relax.

We do not lock the outside gates and keep the Stillewaters sign very small and low key. Kindly contact me if you have any suggestions as to how we can improve.

Kind regards,
Dieter and Mieke Mielke

Verskriklik mooi, maar huisie nie wat ons verwag het nie.

Die plaas is baie mooi met die vriendelikste personeel en is baie stil en veilig. Ek sal net aanraai dat daar voorafgenoem word van die vlieënde goggatjies wat in die aande kom groet sodat gaste vooraf maatreëls kan maak vir hulle. 'n Laaste punt is dat ons als kon hoor in die kombuis van die huis langsaan wat privaatheid beïnvloed.

Can't recommend.

1. The photos do not look like the farm. 2. We were in the separate apartment, but for some reason they decided to put people in the room right next to us who decided to build the Titanic or something at 10 o'clock at night. Couldn't sleep.

Kan nie aanbeveel nie.

1. Die foto's lyk glad nie soos die plaas nie. 2. Ons was in die aparte woonstel, maar vir een of ander rede het hulle besluit om mense te huisves in die kamer reg langs ons wat besluit het om 10 uur die nag die Titanic of iets te bou, dit was so groot geraas ons kon niks slaap nie.

A reasonable overnight stay for the tired traveller and a paradise for the soul!

My friend and I search for a place to cut the ling distance from Bloemfontein to Cape Town in half. Stillewaters meet that requirement perfectly. We stayed in the so called annex which consists of a sleeping and living area with a double bed, a second room with 2 single beds, a kitchen and bathroom with a shower. The annex is furnished in what seemed to be an old farm storage. The facilities is very basic, but neat enough. The kitchen was especially well-equipped. It was lovely to walk around on the farm and to look at everything around you. For the city folk it's always nice. One has to drive through Richmond to get to Stillewaters. Luckily the beautiful Stillewaters is a refresher for the soul.

'n Billike oornag-plek vir die moeë reisiger en 'n lafenis vir die siel!

Ek en my vriendin het 'n plek gesoek om die lang afstand tussen Bloemfontein en Kaapstad in twee te verdeel. Stillewaters voldoen uitstekend aan daardie vereiste. Ons het gebly in die sg. "anneks" wat bestaan uit 'n slaap/leef-vertrek met 'n dubbelbed, 'n tweede kamertjie met twee enkelbeddens, 'n kombuisie en badkamertjie met stort. Die anneks is ingerig in wat voorheen 'n plaasstoor moes gewees het. Die geriewe is baie basies, maar netjies genoeg. Veral die kombuisie was baie goed toegerus. Dit was heerlik om op die plaaswerf rond te stap en alles te aanskou. Vir "stadsjapies" is dit altyd lekker. Mens moet deur Richmond ry om by Stillewaters te kom. Gelukkig is Stillewaters weer baie mooi en 'n lafenis vir die siel.

Bitter koud, maar ongelooflike sterre en melkweg.

Stillewaters sal dalk nie in almal se smaak val nie. Dis baie basies, sonder enige luukses, maar alles wat nodig is word verskaf. Dit was silwerskoon en netjies. Dit was wel bitter koud en die gas was op en ons moes sonder ‘n gasverwarmer klaarkom. Daar was nie ‘n spaar gasbottel nie. Daar was wel 'n paneelverwarmer in die ander vertrek, wat 'n bietjie gehelp het. 'n Elektriese kombers op die bed en 'n vereduvet of meer komberse sou net al die verskil gemaak het. Ek glo nie ek het al so koud geslaap nie. Die ondervinding om op ‘n Karoo-plaas te slaap was wonderlik. Ons kon nie die wonderlike sterre en melkweg weerstaan nie en het baie mooi foto’s geneem. Dit was baie rustig en Chris was heel inskiklik toe ons eers later wou uitklok. Die enigste ander kritiek wat ek kan hê is die grootte van die wasbakkie in die badkamer. Ek hou daarvan om my gesig te was en dit was amper te klein daarvoor. Dit voel meer soos 'n wasbakkie wat 'n mens in 'n gastetoilet sou vind. Met 'n bietjie meer sorg en aandag en professionele raad kan die verblyf daar 'n baie beter ondervinding wees.

Very rough farm dwelling, great for a fisherman's weekend, not so great if you have your wife and daughters with you.

Wow, so if you don't mind roughing it, this is the place for you. We were coming back home from a 3 week camping trip and decided to treat the family to a night in decent accommodation! Well, this was a memorable experience. If you are roughing it with the guys on a fisherman's weekend this is a great place. If you have your wife and daughters with you, perhaps not. My wife and daughters were not very happy with me. In the bitter cold of the Karoo I started a fire in the fire place but the chimney was not connected and filled the room with smoke. No heaters in the room! I can go on but let's leave it at that. There were no locks on the doors. Hey guys, we come from the city and I need to protect my wife and daughters. For what we got it was very expensive. If it was 50% of the price I would have accepted this. Nevertheless, we turned it into some great fun and at the end of it ons het 'n 'lekkeslaap' gehad. It turned out to be safe for us as well as for our car and camping trailer.

In spite of an inadequate welcoming, the accommodation was in the well equipped pleasant farm house that had a lot of character.

There was no sign of life on the farm when we arrived. After looking around we found a farm worker who directed us to a worker's house 200 m away. After that things ran smoothly. The directions to the farm were from a different direction from where we came from.

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

Ten spyte van 'n ontoereikende ontvangs, was die verblyf in die karaktervolle, volledig toegeruste ou plaashuis aangenaam.

By ons aankoms op die plaas was daar geen teken van lewe nie. Na 'n gesoek kon ons een plaaswerker opspoor wat ons na hulp by 'n werkershuis ongeveer 200 m verder beduie het. Daarna het die verblyf darem vlot verloop. Die roete-aanduiding was vanuit 'n ander rigting as waarvandaan ons gekom het.

Die ervaring het nie voldoen aan die verwagting geskep deur foto's en beskrywing.

Die ontvangs was vriendelik, die geriewe was skoon. Die opset is nie gunstig, die huis waarin ons geslaap het moes ons deel met die eienaar wie se kamerdeur oopgestaan het. Een badkamer om te deel vir al die gaste. Instandhouding en voorkoms teleurstellend.

Baie goeie waarde vir geld en goed vir die siel.

Baie mooi omgewing en outentieke plaaswerf wat mens vinnig verplaas na 'n stil, rustige en stimulerende omgewing (ons was letterlik in die skadu van die windpomp). Alles baie netjies en skoon en goed toegerus maar miskien nie vir gefynsdes nie wat dinge meer stadsblink verwag. Die slangaalwyne en kanniedoods (grootstes wat ek nog gesien het) was 'n bonus - en die bestuur sal hopelik met respek uit veld na tuin verplaas. Baie goeie waarde en goed vir die siel.

Glad nie gewaarsku dat ons 'n badkamer met ander kamers moet deel nie.

Uiters teleurstellend. Ons is nie vooraf gesê of liewer gewaarsku dat ons 'n badkamer sal moet deel nie. Die kamer met die en suite was glo bespreek asook die ander vertekke in die huis en daarom moes 3 van ons in die flatlet slaap. Tog het niemand anders opgedaag nie, ons was die enigste gaste. Die sogenaamde 'flat' is niks meer as 'n buitekamer met beddens nie. Geen waaier en jy kan nie die vensters oopmaak nie, want die drein buite die venster vrot asof daar 'n lyk ontbind het! Deur kon nie sluit nie. Ek het vooraf bevestig of dit dierevriendelik is omdat ek 2 Chihuahuas het. Ek is verseker dat dit is en dat hulle welkom is. Met die aankoms was daar 'n groot hond en het die dame wat ons ontvang het gewaarsku dat hy die vorige week ander honde aangeval het. Sy het hom wel gaan toemaak vir 'n tyd, maar ons moes ons hondjies maar vinnig uitneem. Ons het 6 uur die volgende oggend vertrek en ek kan vir seker nie hierdie akkommodasie aanbeveel nie. As dit was vir die feit dat ons 20h00 die aand daar aangekom en reeds betaal het nie sou ek vir seker aangery het.

Yslike groot plaashuis met groot erf.

Stille Waters maar die reis vanaf Johannesburg na Kaapstad 'n plesier. Die feit dat dit verder as Colesberg is (waar ons gewoonlik oornag) maak die tweede dag se reistyd heelwat korter. Lekker atmosfeer en kombuis waar jy self jou eie kos kan kook. Prys is baie billik.

Absoluut tegemoetkomende gasvrou.

Ons het met honde gereis en Stillewaters is ideaal daarvoor met 'n toegespande kamp teen die huis. Die kamers is baie ruim en in die bitter koue het ons selfs verwarmers in ons kamers gekry. Stillewaters is die ideale oornagplek vir gesinne op pad van of na die Kaap.

Nice quiet stay in farm surroundings.

The house can do with some maintenance from a handy man and a cleaner, but is comfortable and quiet. We were kindly moved to the warmest unit available.

Lekker rustige verblyf in plattelandse omgewing.

Die huis kort meer aandag van 'n nutsman en 'n skoonmaker, maar is gerieflik en rustig. Ons is goedgunstiglik geskuif na die warmste beskikbare eenheid.

Rather a backpackers than a guesthouse.

Unfortunately no good comments. Although the building is old, it's neglected. No kettle with coffee and tea facilities in the communal kitchen. Linen is old and worn out.

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

Sal dit eerder as ''backpacker'' beskryf as gastehuis.

Ek kan ongelukkig geen positiewe kommentaar lewer. Die gebou is alhoewel oud, baie verwaarloos. Alhoewel daar 'n gemeenskaplike kombuis is, was daar geen ketel met verwelkomings tee/koffie in die kamers. Die linne is oud en afgeleef.

Very short stay but perfect for my needs.

If you don't mind driving a little from the highway, it is perfect. Short dirt road. I just needed a clean place to rest on the road the Johannesburg. This was neat, convenient and clean and excellent value for money. I don't know if it can be bothersome if there are a lot of people in the house, or if they walk on the wooden floors, but for me it Stillewaters did a good job. Very good value for money.

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

Baie kort gebly maar perfek vir my behoeftes.

As jy nie omgee om so klein entjie van die snelweg af te ry nie is dit perfek. Kort stukkie grondpad. Ek het net 'n skoon plek gesoek om te my te rus op pad terug Johannesburg toe. Hierdie was netjies, gerieflik en skoon en besonder goeie waarde vir geld. Ek weet nie; indien daar baie ander mense in die huis oornag of dit kan lastig wees as hulle op die houtvloere loop of onbedagsaam is nie, maar vir my het Stillewaters aangenaam en goed gewerk. Baie goeie waarde vir geld.

Ek het die regte plaaslewe en warm ontvangs so geniet. Het selfs gehelp om die hanslammers melk te voer. Dit is regtig baie rustig en die plaashuis het karakter.

Not nice at all!

We booked the apartment, because we didn't want to share a bathroom. On arrival a colony of large ants greeted us in front of the door. I wanted to make coffee straight away, but the cups were dirty, the kettle was full of deposits, the stove was super dirty and even though we booked for 4 people, there was barely enough coffee put out for 2 cups. A spider web was hanging from the doorframe and the whole place was not somewhere you would want to sleep. We complained and then we were offered a spot in the farmhouse. That was clean and neat. No fan in the room for the heat and no mosquito repellent. We were attacked by mosquitos and finally found coils in the kitchen. At least Sarie found us a place to eat in town.

Glad nie lekker nie!

Ons het plek in die woonstel bespreek omdat ons nie 'n badkamer wou deel nie. Met aankoms het 'n kolonie groot miere voor die deur ons begroet. Ek wou dadelik koffie maak, maar die bekers was vuil, die ketel was vol aanpaksels, die stofie was hiper vuil en alhoewel ons vir 4 bespreek het, was daar skaars genoeg koffie vir 2 bekers uitgesit. 'n Spinnerak het vanaf die deurkosyn gehang en die hele plekkie was glad nie waar 'n mens wou oornag nie. Ons het gekla en is toe plek in die plaashuis aangebied. Dit was darem skoon en netjies. Geen waaier in die kamer vir die hitte nie en geen muskietweerder nie. Na 'n soektog in die kombuis nadat ons oorval is van muskiete het ons die coils gekry. Sarie het darem vir ons 'n eetplekkie in die dorp gekry om te eet.

Ons vra weereens om verskoning vir die ongerief. Wat die miere betref, hulle was baie aktief voor die reën. Ek probeer hulle in toom hou, het omtrent elke 2de dag gif gegooi. Ons het die spesifieke dag 'n winderige dag gehad, so dit veroorsaak nogal stof. Ons het die oggend skoongemaak. Die stofie se plate kom nie los om skoongemaak te word nie. Jammer oor die min koffie bekers en kalk in die ketel. Sal daarna oplet in die vervolg.

Very tranquil atmosphere, friendly host, beautiful scenery.

The rooms are neat, the farmhouse beautiful and the green lawns and trees with a lot of water makes you feel like you are in an oasis in the middle of the desert. Really remarkable. My daughter could feed the sheep. There are donkey cart rides and a beautiful braai area.

Die kamers is netjies, die plaashuis is pragtig en die groen grasperke en bome met baie water laat jou voel of jy in 'n oasis in die middel van 'n woestyn is. Regtig besonders. My dogter kon help lammers voer. Daar is donkiekar-ritte en 'n pragtige braaiplek.

Wondeful! Great hospitality, retro accommodation, farm full of character, huge farmhouse and rooms. Respite from the daily grind, R&R for your soul.

We had a nice time. The two days just went much too quickly. Everything is very clean, but the beautiful farmhouse and infrastructure needs some maintenance. Since we had the place to ourselves the shared kitchen and bathroom wasn't an issue, but it could have been 'n problem in different circumstances. Just a few minor adjustments and the place could be completely wheelchair-friendly. Mariaan, Sarie, Johan and Johan went out of their way to make our stay lovely and comfortable, thank you so much Stillewaters will see us again and again. Thanks also to Martelle and her colleagues who walked the extra mile on short notice to find alternative accommodation. Stillewaters was their recommendation.

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

Wonderlik! Ongekende gasvryheid, ouwêreldse akkommodasie, karaktervolle plaas, reuse plaashuis en kamers. Kom hier tot stilstand en laat jou siel rus.

Ons het baie lekker gekuier. Die byna twee dae het net te gou verbygevlieg. Alles is pragtig skoon, maar die pragtige plaashuis en infrastruktuur kort liefdevolle onderhoud. Aangesien ons alleen daar was het die gedeelde badkamer en kombuis nie gepla nie, maar dit kan dalk onder omstandighede 'n probleem wees. Met klein veranderinge kan die woning baie maklik volledig rolstoelvriendelik gemaak word. Mariaan, Sarie, Johan en Johan het werklik uit hulle pad gegaan om ons verblyf aangenaam en gerieflik te maak, baie dankie daarvoor. Ons gaan verseker weer en weer by Stillewaters oorbly. Dankie ook aan Martelle en haar kollegas by LekkeSlaap wat die ekstra myl op kort kennisgewing geloop het deur ons behulpsaam te wees om alternatiewe akkommodasie te kry en Stillewaters voorgestel het.

Ons is goed ontvang en alhoewel ons reëlings van verblyf moes verander as gevolg van 'n gebarste waterpyp, het ons 'n knus kamer gekry en kon ons heerlik warm oornag op 'n koue Karoo-winternag. Baie dankie.

Nie wat ons verwag het nie.

Ons het die plek gekies gebaseer op fotos en die beskrywing wat ons op die webtuiste gesien het. Dalk bestaan daardie kamers in die hoofgebou, maar vir ons in die aparte woonstelletjie was dit heeltemal 'n ander prentjie. Baie basies. As ons nie so moeg was nie, het ons verder gery.

Eienaar was baie vriendelik. Dit is 'n werkende plaas dus bly die eienaar op die plaas in die huis. Dit is presies halfpad tussen Johannesburg en die Kaap geleë. Dit is baie goedkoop akkommodasie, dus moet nie 5-ster verblyf verwag nie. Wees asseblief bewus dat jy ablusie-fasiliteite en kombuis met ander gaste en eienaar deel.

Salige oase en outydse sjarme.

Ons het met ons kinders en twee klein kinders vanaf Kaapstad na Gauteng by Stille Waters oornag en is vriendelik ontvang. Die ou huis met sy lang, koel gang het my laat terug verlang na Ouma se huis waar ons graag as kinders gekuier het. Die plaas-atmosfeer is heerlik rustig en was voorwaar 'n lafenis vir ons vermoeide stadsjapies. Dit was beslis die moeite werd om af te draai na Stille Waters.

Fantastiese verblyf as jy eenvoud en stilte soek. Daar is alles wat nodig is met die bekoring van 'n Karooplaas as bonus!

Een van die beste verblyfopsies ooit! As jy hou van baie stilte, geen mense, natuurklanke, oop vlaktes en mooi sonsondergange is hierdie plek vir jou. Moet nie dit gebruik as jy aksie soek of iets om te doen nie. Dit is presies wat ons wou gehad het as gesin. Die kinders het lekker fietsgery, gestap, met die skapies gespeel, hoenders gejaag, ens. Die huis is 'n tipiese ou plaashuis met geen luxuries nie, maar dit het ALLES wat jy nodig het. Lekker gebraai die aand met 'n heerlike bottel rooiwyn! Dit sou lekker gewees het as die braaier buite was om meer die natuurskoon en sonsondergang te kon waardeer.
