Our cottage for two people (Aloe Gardens) was very rundown and in general an uninviting space that didn't appear to be well looked after. We expected much more from the photos on the website. We had also hoped for more of a view from the cottage. I would hesitate to recommend it even for a one night stopover.

Our cottage was perfect for the both of us. I was impressed at all the work put into this accommodation. I was able to cook meals in the kitchen. We had WIFI service, heat, hot water for showers, etc. The owner knows the area very well. We were able to go on hikes near the area and even explored caves...

Based on the experience from a previous visit we had planned for two nights at Red Stone Hills in our itinerary. Having left the (in our opinion) over-rated Garden Route earlier than planned, we were able to get one more night at Red Stone and the stay there turned out to be one of the best on our trip. The...

The Bushman cottage has the best view of all the cottages. Spectacular view of the red stone hills, vineyards and the river flowing 120 m below the cottage. This cottage was built in 1888 with original oregan pine doors, floors and sash windows. Wonderful to share our beautiful surroundings with you!

We stayed for four nights, and we found the place just so relaxing. We'd hike different trails during the day, or head into Outdshoorn. The mornings were wonderful with the sunrise on the hills, and the moon setting beyond them. The nights were very quiet and starlit. The birding is great. The cottage we stayed in was very clean and...

Our first visit to the Red Stone Hills Guest farm and we had an amazing time. Petro and her husband were most accommodating and friendly. Such busy people too. Petro does beautiful paintings which are present in the cottages. The scenery and the mountains were stunning and we found so many interesting shapes and faces in the mountains. Our cottage...

We were well welcomed, although we arrived fairly late on a Saturday. Our ordered food and braaipacks were ready for us. The farm lies within beautiful red conglomerate hills and the views are stunning. Although there were no ostrich chicks, we got an informal, but very informative "tour" to one of the ostriches that was breeding and had a nest...

This time we stayed at Red Rock Cottage. Accomodtion with everything you need for self catering and a perfect atmosphere in this histioric bulding. Petro and Hermanus are perfect hosts and we hope to come back for a forth time.

We had a lovely stay at Red Stone Hills. Loved the proximity to the farm with nearby farm animals, sheep and ostrich. The large veranda was great for viewing the surrounding red hills and enjoying the sunsets. Cottages are well equipped and comfortable. Our little dog was welcomed. Meals were available on order but we had enough food with us....

My wife and I were blown away by this lovely little piece of heaven. The people who run it were kind and welcoming and the accommodation is fantastic. I would go back in a heart beat! They were also pet friendly and completely happy to let us bring our dog along :)
