Home away from home. Our host Denis welcomed us and spent time explaining everything this spacious and beautifully appointed cottage has to offer. One can cook or braai and there are facilities indoors and out to dine. On a hot day the plunge pool is an absolute treat. There are lovely bathrooms inside but my favourite treat was the outdoor shower! We spent one afternoon binging on Netflix using the wifi so be sure to bring a laptop and cable. A sound system with music is provided as well as 200 movies for entertainment. I particularly loved the water friendly garden and all the birds it attracts. The cottage is close to all the shops and restaurants but set a bit back from the main road which makes it quiet and peaceful. I can't wait to go back to this wonderful place.
Fantastic value for money, hotel quality bedding, ideal location, just a stroll from the main road!!
I have stayed at Wild Almond Cottage twice now and have loved it thoroughly both times!
A storybook cottage in a storybook town, the cottage is cosy and beautiful in both summer and winter.
Dennis and his wife pay great attention to detail to make your stay even more perfect than you hoped.
Your morning views out of your bedroom window make you feel like you have stepped back in time and the whole house reminds you of a book that you read when you were a child.
Everything is within walking distance of the cottage. If you are planning on staying here just make sure that you book in advance as it is very popular. Also be sure to check which days the restaurants are open!
Spent the weekend in this fantastic cottage.Dennis was really friendly and welcoming .We had some chilly, weather but the complimentary bottle of wine , electric blankets and heating provided kept the cold at bay .
Was well equipped and comfy .
The little garden was picturesque and private .
We will be back and can highly recommend it !
McGregor is a beautiful village filled with traditional Cape Dutch architecture with white washed walls and thatched roofs. Wild Almond cottage ticks all the boxes - traditional, comfortable, beautiful and romantic where a good meal can be cooked in the well appointed yet simple kitchen or under the vine covered stoep while classic music plays in the background. This is a place to settle down for a long relaxing stay.
We could not have asked for a more beautiful cottage in the most incredible setting. The owners were so helpful and attentive from the word go and all the small touches and well thought out cottage was perfect in every way. We had the best family holiday and can highly recommend Wild Almond Cottage. A real gem and we will be back! Thank you so much Dennis and Maureen.
We lost our hearts to this welcoming and delightful cottage, in keeping with its surroundings and revealing in its decor a deft artistic hand. We only had two blissful nights and couldn't bring ourselves to stir farther than walking around the village to enjoy breakfasts at Temenos and a stylish dinner at Karoux. How we wish Wild Almond weren't so far from England!
