    Coming there was a bit of a challenge, you have to take a side road for multiple km. Please use the directions that the host will provide and don't trust google maps. The host, Amanda de Vos ( a 7th generation Dutch settler, is so nice warm and friendly). The rooms are complete and a bit of outdoor style, the view and atmosphere is mind boggling, of both I have enclosed some pictures. Last detail: The breakfast is perfect!!

    This "secret place" is amazing! You are disconnected but not too far from main attractions of the region. But chilling out and relaxing there is unique. Amanda is a great host, and she made something unique of the place, the place in real is even better than in the pictures!

    Not a big fan of filter coffee, no other options was available.

    Breakfast was great, and room view fantastic

    Road to house not well marked, we arrived bit late and could have easily taken wrong road if not for the GPS. Some clay roads so Sedan can do but I would not. Inside fireplace smoked out the house.

    Trees and kids free to roam around. Peaceful and safe for walks. Lovely outside fireplace, kids loved it!

    The breakfast is very well served, with nice home made foods. The pool has a very nice view on the beautiful landscape surrounding the accomodations.

    The rustic ambience added to the perfect setting if you want to get away from it all.
