Fantasties! Ons gaan beslis ten minste 1 maal per jaar teruggaan.

Santa is 'n engel! Die mense in die dorp is fantasties, vriendelik soos net plattelandse mense kan wees. Die huisie was basies 100% wat ons wou gehad het en jy is reg in die bos, dit was 'n ongelooflike naweek en ons gaan beslis weer teruggaan!

Rustic, enchanting, timeless.

Rustic, enchanting, a place lost in a time of years past. I loved the decor, the setting and the theme of the rondavel. The setting is amazing, very close to the river and listening to the rushing sounds of water from the deck area is calming to the soul. The river is absolutely beautiful. Huge rocks to sit on under the canopy of trees enjoying the sound of the cold waters covering your feet that are dangling in the water. 1.5 km away there is a breathtakingly beautiful dam with high a stone wall of rock to view. However, I drove down the alternative path to accommodate my pensioner parents. I absolutely loved the "hike" feeling of the place. The place was clean and well equipped. Even included a potjie pot. The braai area was extremely cosy with ample seating of various kinds. I so enjoyed the "kuier" with my family. The small deck overlooking the tree tops was wonderful and I enjoyed stargazing there. The place is far enough out of large towns so that the night sky was very dark and the stars brighter. The sounds of nature was awesome. We viewed squirrels, monkeys, birds, etc. from the rondavel. We enjoyed the mampoer tasting and viewing the living Charles Herman Bosman Museum and learning about its history. Our hostess was simply the best and bent over backwards to ensure that we were comfortable and happy. We felt so safe here, coming from Gauteng. We slept with both doors open so that a lovely cool draft could go through the house. They days were hot, but the evenings were lovely and cool. This place is magical and I just loved it!

Rus en vrede!

Dis nou "bosveld TV" op sy beste! Die natuurskoon en stilte laat jou heeltemal ontspan, dis glad nie luuks nie, geen WiFi of "foefies" nie, maar nog asof jy by ouma en oupa op die plaas gaan kuier! Al die noodsaaklikhede is tot jou beskikking en ondersteun sommer die plaaslike groentewinkel, slaghuis of "mansapteek" (die bottelstoor) en dan is daar ook gerieflike kafeetjies, wat vars plaasmelk, brood ens. verkoop. Wag 'n Bietjie Restaurant en Pub maak heerlike kos en jy kan rugby of sport daar gaan kyk terwyl jy ietsie kouds vat vir die keel. Dankie Tannie Santa, ons maak weer so!

Die eienaar doen baie meer as wat van enige gasvrou verwag kan word. Hierdie plek is ’n weggesteekte juweel. Die tipe natuurskoon vind ’n mens deesdae moeilik. Die visvang plek is idilies mooi en die akkomodasie is heeltemal gemaklik en voldoende. Ons het lekker ontspan en sal graag weer besoek.

Rustig en gesellig.

Die kuier hier was fantasties gewees. Die natuur is die hoogte punt van alles hier, mens se gedagtes raak weg tussen die bome en die kranse. Die braai areas was gemaklik en toegerus. Dis net die waaiers in die kamers wat nie genoeg was nie en die een waaier wat daar was, was gebreek, die lug was darm koel genoeg gewees dat dit nie te erg was nie. As mens daar tussen die bome by die rivier ronddwaal dan voel dit asof mens in 'n fantasie woud in loop.

Very disappointing.

No easy access to the river or dam. Infestation of ticks. Only one fan. No outside rubbish bin for full rubbish bags.

Up The Creek's response

Sorry about your disappointment.
Our guest cottages are above and not below the flood line, for your safety of course.
If you bring dogs to the Bushveld, in summer, expect to find ticks on them. There are no ticks in the cottage, as they need a host.
Rubbish bins are not provided outside, to discourage visits from local monkeys.

Minor problems were sorted quickly by the owner. A few folding chairs to take to the river you’ll be nice. A walk up the Groot kloof is recommended.

Peaceful bushveld accommodation for someone who loves the Marico bushveld.

Facilities are basic but fit with the forest and river. Nice walks and swimming in the river for those who were active. There is deliberately no TV, just the silence and tranquillity.

Rustige bosveldverblyf vir iemand wat van die Marico-bosveld hou.

Fasiliteite is basies, maar pas by die bos en rivier. Lekker wandelpaadjies en swem in die rivier vir diegene was aktief is. Daar is doelbewus geen TV nie, net die stilte en rustigheid.

Plek was stowwerig, slegte pad en glad nie soos foto's voorstel.

Ek was teleurgesteld, dit was regtig misleidend volgens foto's op Facebook. Plek is werklik onprakties en konserwatief. Stort ongelooflike donker hoekie met baie stof in hele plek. My vriendin se allergie was ondraaglik. Onpraktiese meubels wat oortollig is. Geen mikrogolf. Toegangspad baie swak en geen melding daarvan in bespreking. Was 'n okay naweek, maar regtig absolute basics. Erge mierprobleem ook wat in enige houers of kos klim wat nie in yskas gebêre word nie. Gebrek aan spieëls in kamers. Ons leef darem nie meer in die primitiewe tye nie.

Up The Creek's response

En ten spyte van hierdie ervaring, kan ons nie voorbly om die cottage te bespreek nie, gaste kom weer en weer terug om die basiese ongeskondenheid van Up The Creek by die rivier te kom geniet. Dit is die Noordweste, ons almal ry die 1.7 km grondpad met gewone sedan karre. Vir ons billike tariewe, kry gaste 'n volledig toegeruste kombuis met stoof, oond en yskas/vrieskas, 'n lieflike braai op die stoep, skoon beddegoed en die waarborg dat die cottage 'n dag voor die tyd volledig skoongemaak word. Jammer vir julle allergieë, daarmee het ons simpatie. Dis die eerste keer in 20 jaar dat iemand nie tevrede is met die lig in die stort nie, dit is deel van die badkamer se beligting, en net vir daardie ekstra romantiese atmosfeer is daar ook kerse aangebring.

The perfect place to chill, chill, chill.

This is the perfect getaway for the stressed out nature lover needing to recharge the batteries. Talk a lovely walk - or not. Unless you have a 5 month old puppy with you, in which case you will take lots of lovely walks! Read a book, listen to the birds, feel the breeze on your skin. Eat, drink, sleep and feed your soul with silence. The cottage is rustic, as clean as this type of accommodation can be, and equipped with everything you need. Now, if you want more, you are at the wrong place and need to look for more glamorous lodging. We hope to be back soon.

For one, you have the location of Up The Creek completely wrong. Your GPS coordinates are incorrect and you should have informed me that should go to Marico.

The place is very sheltered and in a beautiful area. The place is clean and it is quiet.

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

Vir eers het julle die ligging van Up The Creek heeltemal verkeerd. Julle GPS-koördinate is verkeerd en julle moes my laat weet het dat ek by die Marico info aangaan.

Die plek is heel skaflik en in 'n mooi omgewing. Die plek is skoon en dit is lekker stil.

Goed gerus.

Ons het heerlik gebly, en ons kon voel ons was weg van die massas en gedruis van die stad. Die stilte van die bosveld doen wonders vir die siel. Al was daar ander gaste op die plaas, het dit gevoel of ons die hele plek vir ons self gehad het. Die kinders het lekker swartbaars gevang in die dam, ons het lekker piekniek gehou en fietsgery. Moenie luukshede verwag nie. Presies hoe ons dit verkies. Alhoewel ons nooit onveilig gevoel het nie, dink ek tog daar kan bietjie meer aandag aan sekuriteit gegee word. Daar is menige bergfietsroetes in die area, en ek stel voor dat die inligtingsentrum kaarte van die roetes laat maak en byderhand hou.

Pragtige natuur.

Baie vriendelike ontvangs gehad. Die huisie is baie skoon, ek stel voor as jy in die winter gaan neem maar 'n verwarmer saam. Die aanwysings is heeltemal verkeerd, en ons het dus eers so bietjie verdwaal, maar Santa het ons gou gehelp en op die regte pad gekry.

Ons is so geseënd om Up The Creek met gaste te kan deel. Ja, die natuur is pragtig. Ek sal met LekkeSlaap kontak maak en sien waar het die fout met die aanwysings gekom.

Dit was 'n wonderlike ervaring, weg vanaf die stadsgeraas.

Ons het in die Rondavel gebly vir die naweek. Dit was baie gerieflik, en het niks gekort nie. Sal vir seker weer gaan! Het die stap langs die rivier ook geniet. Ons hondjie was ook welkom! Baie dankie aan Up the Creek!

Rustic Longdawel in the bush.

Relaxing rustic longdawel in the bush, very hot weather but beautiful untouched area! Nice braai area undercover, worth a visit.

Will never visit Groot Marico again.

Unbearably hot, Klaas's cottage was uncomfortably hot. Took a walk to the river, on the way walked into a swarm of bees and got stung. Disappointing.

Mooi omgewing - Goed ingerigte braai-area.

Ons as gesin het heerlik ontspan. Glo nie die huis is vir almal nie - moet niks luuks verwag nie. Was fantasties om ons 4 voet saam te vat. Braai-area onderdak, al het dit gereën, kon ons steeds braai.

Up The Creek's response

Dankie vir de positiewe kommentaar, dit was 'n plesier om julle as gaste te hê.

Wat waarde vir geld aanbetref kan 'n mens nie beter kry nie, by die rivier, lieflike natuur, veilig en gemaklik ingerig. Ingesluit is beddegoed, elektrisiteit, oulike onderdak braaiplek en dit vir R 170.00 per persoon per nag.
Ons doen dit graag vir ons gaste omdat ons self lief is vir diere en ook omdat ons graag ons mooi omgewing deel.

Peasant and relaxing.

Will recommend it. Not luxurious but just what city slicers need. Nature makes up for everything.

Aangenaam en ontspannend.

Sal dit aanbeveel. Geen weelde maar net wat stadsjapies nodig het. Die natuur vergoed vir alles.

Ons is so bly dat julle dit geniet het, want dit is presies wat ons vir ons stadsvriende wil aanbied. Lieflike natuur by die rivier, en skoon en netjiese akkommodasie. Kom weer.

Not well looked after.

It's a real hide away place. Very quiet. The cottage is in the middle of a forest. Away from the city noises. Excellent hot water. It would have been cosy if the cottage was well cleaned and maintained. The extra blankets in the cupboard were smelly, they are due for washing. Couldn't use the bedroom cupboards because of the smell. The couches are a real disaster, can't even sit on them. Could be nice to put some doom in the cottage, lots of insects at night inside the cottage.

Up The Creek's response

Dear Joseph,
Thank you for the positive feedback. We agree, it is indeed a real hide-away, special place.
You will agree that the bedding and blankets on the beds were immaculate clean. I am sorry that you have landed up in the cleaners cupboard, but I went to the cottage after your stay and I really couldn't find the smelly stuff, it is cleaned regularly, but it is also true that we do not use any sprays or chemical stuff like doom - as we love creation and nature. And 99% of our guests appreciate and honour that. Come again, on the house.

Staying there was an absolute pleasure being cut off from the busy city life.

It was a pleasant surprise, we enjoyed being cut off from our normal life and just enjoyed the peace and quiet in the bush.

Up The Creek's response

Thank you for describing your stay at Up The Creek as an absolute pleasure, and yes, the plus point is to be in nature and enjoy the quiet and peace of the bush.

Relaxing, stunning and beautiful.

Rondavel is rustic and caters for all needs, the environment is beautiful and peaceful. I would suggest that the route to the dam along the river gets cut away due to all the rain. It has totally overgrown.

Up The Creek's response

We were blessed to have more than 400 mm rain in the past three weeks and everything is growing abundantly - the lovely hiking route along the river is cut open and a pleasure to walk again.

Ongelooflik mooi, stil en ontspannend.

Het regtig van die plekkie gehou. Perfek vir die "outdoor" mense, die selfsorg-eenheid is lekker privaat en is regtig 'n lekker plekkie vir ontspan & rustig wees. Dis die perfekte wegbreek van die stad.

Up The Creek's response

Ons hou van gaste wat hierdie spesiale plekkie kan waardeer, privaat en tog veilig, en net die regte plekkie vir buitelug mense. Het julle die wandelpaadjies by die rivier probeer en die swemgat by die kranse?

See the star-rating.

Aangenaam verras met mooi rivierfront en berge met eenhede wat sinvol toegerus is en 'n heerlike atmosfeer skep.

Sien die sterre.

Quaint place to relax far from the city.

We enjoyed the place, there was just a weird smell in the main bedroom. It would also be great if they could leave an extra roll of toilet paper in the house. But the place was absolutely stunning and we would definitely recommend it to others. We would also love to visit again. The natural surroundings are breathtaking and very peaceful. We thoroughly enjoyed our break from the city.

Oulike plek om te bly weg van die stadslewe.

Het die plekkie geniet, daar was net 'n ongemaklike reuk in die hoofslaapkamer. Kan dalk net 'n ekstra rol toiletpapier ook los by die huisie. Die res van hierdie pragtige plek is beeldskoon. Sal beslis aanbeveel vir ander en weer gaan kuier. Natuur is onbeskryflik mooi en rustig. Het die wegbreek uit die stad in hierdie oulike plekkie baie geniet.

Dit was die rus en vrede vir die siel.

Ek wil eerste van alles sê: hierdie naweek was meer werd as 'n week se verlof. Die vars lug, die natuur, die mooiste helderste sterre. Die plaas doen jou hart en siel goed. Stukkie hemel op aarde. Die rondawel is volledig en pragtig ingerig en is baie mooi skoon. Die mense is almal baie vriendelik en behulpsaam. Die eienaar oom Piet is baie gaaf en vriendelik. Ons wil dankie sê vir die waarde vir ons geld. Dit was lekker en beslis kom ons gou weer kuier.

Up The Creek's response

Oom Piet is die eienaar van Up The Creek. Hy is mal oor die plek en mal oor die mense, om vir hulle goed te ontvang en te wys wat daar te sien is. Dankie vir jou positiewe terugvoering. Dit is vir ons 'n riem onder die hart.
