'n Plekkie op die rand van die Karoo se grootsheid.

Ons het die afwesigheid van elektrisiteit en die kuiers voor die kaggel terdeë geniet. Sielsvernuwend.

A place on the edge of the Karoo's greatness.

We thoroughly enjoyed the absence of electricity and the visits in front of the fireplace. Soul renewing.

'n Hartsplek.

Sout van die aarde, en is mos hoe Karoo-mense is, hoe dan anders. Rus vir jou liggaam, verstand en siel. Weg van die lewe se gejaag.

Beleef die stil binnekring van die Karoo.

'n Mens kan feitelik vertel: Netjiese, skoon, goed toegeruste huis met 360-grade-uitsigte op berge, effektiewe bespreking en ontvangs, veilige omgewing, gepas vir buitelugentoesiaste, ens. Of jy kan liries raak: Uitmuntende, besonderse verblyf waar jy van die eerste lig op die indrukwekkende berge, tot die laaste verwondering aan die sterre, die stiltes en getuienisse van honderde miljoene jare se Karoo-evolusie beleef – 'n uitsonderlike plek wat jy sal koester en waarvan jy nog lank sal droom. Voeg daarby hartlike ontvangs en interessante plaaslike vertellings. Besluit maar watter beskrywing jy verkies: Albei is waar. Die effens minder sterre vir "waarde vir geld" is bloot omdat die afstand vanaf ons woonplek ook aan petrolgeld vreet; in werklikheid is die akkommodasiekoste billik. Die vier sterre vir ligging is eweneens omdat dit effens ver vir 'n kort verblyf is, maar die werklike ligging van die huis met die uitsigte op berge en valleie is uitstekend. Hoogs aan te beveel.

Experience the quiet inner circle of the Karoo.

One can tell matter-of-factly: Neat, clean, well-equipped house with 360-degree mountain views, effective booking and reception, safe environment, suitable for outdoor enthusiasts, etc. Or you can wax lyrical: Excellent, exceptional accommodation where you experience from the first light on the impressive mountains, to the last wonder at the stars, the silences and testimonies of hundreds of millions of years of Karoo evolution - an exceptional place that you will cherish and of which you will dream for a long time. Add to that a warm welcome and interesting local stories. Just decide which description you prefer: Both are true. The slightly fewer stars for "value for money" is simply because the distance from our place of residence also eats into gas money; in fact the accommodation cost is reasonable. The four stars for location is also because it is a little far for a short stay, but the actual location of the house with the views of mountains and valleys is excellent. Highly recommend.

We loved our stay at Tamboershoek.

For nature lovers, this is a perfect setting, with breathtaking views of the Karoo Hoogland. The cottage was very clean and very comfortable. The lovely indoor fireplace kept us warm and added to the ambience. We hardly noticed the lack of electricity as there are so many lamps available. And with no signal, we could completely enjoy peace and tranquillity.

Asemrowend mooi - die mooiste kothuisie, stil, pragtige uitsig en die mooiste sterre.

As jy van paaie ry hou, moet jy hier oornag. Vat die pad van Merweville af, gaan regoor die teerpad weer grondpad langs Fraserburg toe. Bespreek by hierdie ongelooflike oase. So romanties met kerse en parrafien lampe. Darem ook LED liggies! Die mooiste meubels, elke kamer met moderne en suite-badkamers, warm water, super netjies, toegerus met alles en die mooiste skaapvel kwilt en gansdons duvets op die bed. Vat dan die pad links oor die Ou Poortpas. Wow! Klim van die teerpaaie af en sien die wêreld op die grondpaaie!

Breathtakingly beautiful - the most beautiful cottage, quiet, beautiful view and the most beautiful stars.

If you like road driving, you should spend the night here. Take the road from Merweville, go across the tarmac again to the dirt road next to Fraserburg. Book at this incredible oasis. So romantic with candles and paraffin lamps. At least LED lights too! The most beautiful furniture, each room with modern en-suite bathrooms, hot water, super neat, equipped with everything and the most beautiful sheepskin quilt and goose down duvets on the bed. Then take the road to the left over the Ou Poort Pass. Wow! Get off the tarmac and see the world on the dirt roads!

Onsettend rustig. Winderig. Ander tipe mooi.

Vir sommige mense is die plek hemel op aarde. Tieners sukkel met die feit dat daar geen krag en selopvangs is nie.

Wegbreek vir twee dae om bietjie stilte te kry.

Tamboershoek is baie mooi geleë op ’n skaapplaas in die Karoo. Pragtig en netjies. Lekker gebly, pasop net as jy in die somer soontoe gaan - dit kan baie warm word!

Tamboershoek is very nicely situated on a sheep farm in the Karoo. Beautiful and neat. Had a great stay, just be careful if you go there in the summer - it can get very hot!

Wonderful views, but no shade on the veranda, so hot.

On the website a plunge pool is advertised, but there isn't one.

Good day,
I am so sorry that the splash pool was not available during a very hot time of the year. However, it was explained to all our guests that due to the extreme drought we did not have enough water to fill the pool.
The verandah has no permanent structure for shade because during the rest of the year it is absolutely stunning to sit on the verandah and enjoy the view and the sun, and the moon, and the stars. However, there is a large, industrial umbrella in the cottage for use by the guests. We do not put it up permanently due to high winds. Thank you for bringing this under my attention. In future, I will inform the guests about the umbrella, as well as offer assistance to put it up.
Thank you for your feedback.
Regards,
Gerda Kellerman

Dankie vir 'n wonderlike tyd daar ver in die karoo! Due stilte en sterrehemel was n wonderlike bonus. Lekker geswem, gebraai en gekuier saam met ons jongmens kinders! Hulle was mal oor die plek!

Ons kon nie vir 'n beter ligging en uitsig gevra het nie!

Die tweeslaapkamerhuisie vér weg van ligte en mense was presies wat ons gesoek het! Die stilte en uitsig én ontelbare sterre in die aand was balsem vir die siel. Wat die ervaring nog meer spesiaal gemaak het is dat daar geen selfoonopvangs is nie en ons in die aand by lamplig en kaggelvuur gekuier het! Die huisie is baie goed toegerus en die beddens slaap soos 'n droom. 'n Hoogtepunt was om laatmiddag in die plonspoel te "swem" en die ongelooflike uitsig in te drink. Dit was absolute waarde vir geld!

We couldn't have asked for a better location and view!

The two bedroom cottage far away from lights and people was exactly what we were looking for! The silence and view and countless stars in the evening were balm for the soul. What made the experience even more special is that there is no cell phone reception and we visited in the evening by lamplight and fireplace! The cottage is very well equipped and the beds sleep like a dream. A highlight was "swimming" in the plunge pool in the late afternoon and drinking in the incredible view. It was absolute value for money!

Plek om die siel te herlaai.

As jy wil wegkom van als en almal en jou voete wil vind is hierdie die perfekte plek. Alles wat jy van 'n selfsorg-eenheid verlang en nog meer sal jy daar kry. Pragtige kamers en netjies en lekker ingerig. Het glad nie elektrisiteit gemis nie, eienaars het voorsiening gemaak vir genoeg olielampe en batteryliggies. Die binnenshuise kaggel het 'n wonderlike atmosfeer geskep. Pragtige uitsig. Rivierloop was ongelukkig droog, geen wild gesien nie. Sal definitief weer besoek en sterk aanbeveel.

Place to recharge the soul.

If you want to get away from everything and everyone and find your feet, this is the perfect place. Everything you want from a self-catering unit and even more you will find there. Beautiful rooms and neatly and nicely furnished. Didn't miss electricity at all, owners provided enough oil lamps and battery lights. The indoor fireplace created a wonderful atmosphere. Beautiful view. River walk was unfortunately dry, no wildlife seen. Will definitely visit again and highly recommend.
