    The location was perfect for our family get-together: not too near and not too far from "civilization". The unit was beautifully furnished and it had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. It was special to receive a bottle of wine that...

Company information

We've been coming to South Africa since the 1970's. Our sports travel business was the biggest in its market to South Africa. We first bought a home here in 2002 and purchased the farm in 2010. We opened our home to guests in 2016 and have received excellent reviews from everybody. Our guests love the peace and quiet which you think has been invaded if an aircraft flies high in the sky. The children love the open spaces. The adults love the wine. Everybody loves Natalie, our housekeeper, who has been running the house for 13 years. And, then, there is the sky at night. It never ceases to fascinate us very time we come here, which is three times a year. We hope you have a wonderful stay in our South African home and enjoy it as much as our extended family does. Rosie and Edwin Doran
