Skoon, netjies, uniek, rustig.

Wens ons kon nog 'n nag hier deurgebring het. Ongelooflike akkommodasie.

Wat 'n verrassing was die dorpie en blyplek nie! Pragtig en vol geskiedenis! Ook omgewing!

Ons het in die aande 'n TV so bietjie gemis, maar daar is genoeg leesstof en speletjies beskikbaar. Ook lekker dat daar voorsiening gemaak is vir beurtkrag. Ou geskiedkundige huisie is so mooi herstel dat dit glad nie afbreuk doen aan die voorkoms en karakter nie.

What a surprise the village and place to stay was! Beautiful and full of history! Also environment!

We missed a TV a bit in the evenings, but there is enough reading material and games available. Also nice that provision has been made for load shedding. Old historic cottage has been so beautifully restored that it does not detract from the appearance and character at all.

Baie lekker gebly!

Daai stoep en kaggel is fantasties! Atmosfeer is rustig, lekker privaat. Maak net seker die eienaar verduidelik jou hoe die songeyser werk. Aand warm, oggend koud. En daar is ook nie elektriese komberse soos in die beskrywing nie (maar oorgenoeg warm komberse vir die koue). Over all vrek lekker gebly!

Very nice stay!

That porch and fireplace are fantastic! Atmosphere is peaceful, nice and private. Just make sure the owner explains to you how the solar geyser works. Evening hot, morning cold. And there are also no electric blankets as in the description (but plenty of warm blankets for the cold). Over all had a great stay!

We had a wonderful stay in this authentic karoo cottage which even has an invertor. We could walk everywhere to explore the village and then relax on the stoep.

'n Heerlike paar dae! So 'n pragtige dorpie, lieflik gerestoureede huis en baie aangename, hulpvaardige eienaars.

Ons was vier volwassenes en die huis het ons wonderlik gepas. Selfs met die baie beurtkrag het ons geen probleem gehad nie, want die eienaars het goed voorsiening gemaak.

A wonderful few days! Such a beautiful village, lovely restored house and very pleasant, helpful owners.

We were four adults and the house suited us wonderfully. Even with the heavy load shedding we had no problem because the owners provided well.

Heerlik.

Die heerlikste, plaaslike vars melk het die gasvrou vir ons in die yskas gesit, en dan nog heerlike koekies daarby. Ons 2 honde was veilig op die omheinde perseel. Baie dankie.

Peaceful weekend on the stoep, exactly what we were looking for!

Charming and traditional old cottage surrounded by Spekboom, just what the doctor ordered for a quiet family weekend away. Great showers, firm beds, wifi and a gas oven/hob - all a plus. In walking distance to almost everything in Prince Albert. The furniture is old, which suits the age of the building, so don't expect modern and new, enjoy true Prince Albert heritage. The stoep is the best part, we spent hours with our feet up, reading and relaxing.

Ongelooflik!

Jenny is 'n wonderlike gasvrou. Alles was skoon en netjies. Die beskutte sonstoep is fantasties. Die stofie en elektriese komberse was 'n wenner! Die eiendom is veilig omhein en dierevriendelik. Baie lekker gekuier, stil omgewing en teen die koppie. Sal beslis weer besoek!

Jenny is a wonderful hostess. Everything was clean and tidy. The sheltered sun porch is fantastic. The duster and electric blankets were a winner! The property is securely fenced and pet friendly. Very nice visit, quiet environment and against the hill. Will definitely visit again!

Was 'n heerlike Karoo-ervaring.

All was well, glasses and cutlery needs a bit of attention. There were a lot of flies too, maybe spray the property.

Netjies en skoon, goed ingerig. Bied 'n goeie uitsig oor die Swartberge en wonderlikke sonopkoms.

Die huis het n lekker kuier-stoep wat sorg vir gesellige kuier-aande. As ek iets kon verbeter sou dit die braaigeriewe wees.

Neat and clean, well furnished. Offers a good view of the Black Mountains and wonderful sunrises.

The house has a nice patio that makes for cozy evenings. If I could improve something it would be the braai facilities.
