“The cottage was a perfect spot for an overnight stop for our family of four (including 2 young children). Anna-Lucia met us on arrival and made us feel very welcome. The cottage was nicely finished and had everything we needed, including a lovely deck and outdoor space and some board games. We didn't use the braai, but it was available and all set up for us if we'd wanted to. Anna-Lucia also welcomed us to use her pool, which was a great treat for both kids and adults on a hot day.”

“Perfect for families and groups. But also as a couple or with friends you'll enjoy the quietness and beauty of this place. Especially during the night; the starry sky is just amazing! The House itself is spacious and very well equipped. Sonja and her family are wonderful hosts. If you're smart: bring some food. Swellendam is some minutes away and the roads are 'special'. Also on the property you can use your regular car, but you're happy if you have an SUV.”
