                                                  The little cottage was in a very tranquil setting, and we really enjoyed the feeling of being in such a beautiful setting with no one else around. The cottage is very comfortable, but needs some minor repairs, eg. the shower leaks on to the wooden floor and the braai grid needs to be replaced. In spite of this, we would certainly go back to this little peace of beautiful Karoo and we would definitely stay at the little cottage again.*****************************************************Establsihment response:HI CherylThank you very much for your feedback, we always appreciate this.It helps us...

                                                  Alhoewel nie luuks nie, was alles in die cabin wat ons nodig gehad het. En suite ablusie geriewe sal geriefliker wees.

                                                  Beautiful reserve, visitors will definitely need high clearance vehicle to drive to remote cottages. Cottage needs some maintenance work on the facilities. Lovely view from cottage was the highlight of our trip.
