Relaxing.

The house had everything you need. It was a perfect base to explore all the passes. We will definitely go back for a few more days.

Mooi uitsig oor die berge.

Baie skoon netjiese plekkie, eienaar baie ons op hoogte gehou op WhatsApp, sal dalk net warm water bottels of warm kombers voorstel, daar's wel 'n kaggel, maar moeilik om die vuur deur die nag te brand, het redelik koud geword daar. Die res was als pragtig, skoon en netjies.

Nice view of the mountains.

Very clean neat little place, owner kept us updated on WhatsApp, maybe just suggest hot water bottles or a warm blanket, there is a fireplace, but difficult to keep the fire burning through the night, it got quite cold there. The rest was beautiful, clean and tidy.

Baie lekker en netjiese plek.

Is wel klein, maar voldoende. Let op dat die trappies vanaf die motor na die huisie wel 'n uitdaging is vir ouer mense. Die uitsig is egter pragtig.

Great views, terrible road, rustic cottage.

Although the views were great and the town of Rhodes very interesting, it was not worth the terrible 64 km dirt road. On top of that, we had to drag our luggage up about fifty uneven steps. The cottage itself was okay but very basic.

An amazing, quiet place where your soul can again catch up with your body!

A small well-equipped chalet in the mountains - on a working sheep farm (for one - the other is a high altitude training facility) where you can sit and watch the beautiful mountains, experience the sun, the rain and rest. You feel so close to your Creator! If you want to get some exercise you can walk on the farm, hike in the mountains, take a ride on your mountain bike, go for a trail run on the well-established trails, swim in a Olympic size pool, train in a well-equipped gym, all with the most wonderful couple as your hosts. With the location you can also drive around the most beautiful places. An absolute must for the weary person.

Pragtige omgewing, heerlik gekuier.

Die chalet is pragtig geleë met 'n lekker braai area om saans onder die sterre te sit. Wonderlik vir ons uit die stad!! Ongelukkig het die yskas glad nie gewerk nie en verder kort die chalet ernstige instandhoudingswerk. Andersins als in orde.

Mooiste uitsigte net buite die histories dorp Rhodes.

Aan die voet van die Naudes Nek pas en net 'n paar kilometer buite die Historiese dorp Rhodes is Swallows Nest ideaal geleë om die omgewing te verken en binne bereik van die mooiste en beste wilde forelriviere in die land. Die chalet is skoon en netjies en het alles wat jy nodig het. Die uitsigte vanaf die patio is onbeskryflik mooi. Dankie aan Sunelle en Yilton vir julle gasvryheid.

Most beautiful views just outside the historic town of Rhodes.

Nestled at the foot of the Naudes Nek pass and just a few kilometers outside the historic town of Rhodes, Swallows Nest is ideally situated for exploring the area and within reach of the most beautiful and best wild trout rivers in the country. The chalet is clean and tidy and has everything you need. The views from the patio are indescribably beautiful. Thanks to Sunelle and Yilton for your hospitality.

Ons het baie lekker gebly. Die kothuis is volledig toegerus en die diens en verwelkoming deur die eienaar was uitstekend. Ons sal baie graag binnekort weer terug wil keer na die Rhodes area om die natuurskoon te geniet.

Verruklik mooi, uiters gasvry.

Die eienaars was baie vriendelik en behulpsaam, al het ons na donker eers daar aangekom in reënerige toestande. Hulle het alles in hul vermoë gedoen om ons gemaklik te maak ten opsigte van krag-onderbreking. Het selfs laat weet watter eetplekke oop was op 1 Jan om 20:00 en ons per sms laat weet. Die huisie is netjies en gesellig, geleë in asemrowende natuurskoon. Dit was heerlik om wakker te word en te luister na allerlei plaasgeluide: 'n haan wat kraai, skape wat blêr, 'n pou wat roep, en sagte reëndruppels op die dak, met 'n pragtige sonopkoms.

Beautiful, extremely hospitable.

The owners were very friendly and helpful, even though we only arrived after dark and in rainy conditions. They did everything in their power to make us feel comfortable because of the power shortage. They even let us know via sms which restaurants were open on 1 Jan at 20:00. The house is neat and cosy, located in breathtaking scenery. It was lovely to wake up to all the farm noises: a rooster that crows, a sheep that bleats, a peacock that calls, and soft raindrops on the roof, with a beautiful sunrise.

Awesome!

'n Lieflike plek om te ontspan en weg te kom van die "rat race!" en nader aan die Skepper te kom. Die uitsig oor die berge, die waterstroom, die geluid van die wind, die voëls en die plaasdiere - dis verfrissend. Die fasiliteite is uitstekend en alles is netjies en skoon. As radio-amateur kon ek my antenna opslaan en 'n klompie kontakte laat werk. Die chalet is amper op die KF39/KF49-lyn.
