A quirky little estate of colonial houses, beautifully kept grounds, and nothing around for miles. Definitely need your own transport for this one. 20kms out of Outdshoorn town on good but unlit roads. Secure car parking on grounds, and very peaceful. The house contains beautiful old furniture with a bright coloured wall art and decor and some kooky touches. Room was clean with gorgeous old 4 poster bed, white fluffy towels, bathroom products, slippers. A safe and (ostrich egg shaped) mini bar! Only downside of room was that although it’s ok and quite romantic to have a freestanding bath in the corner of the room, to also have a toilet with a small wooden screen to hide behind will soon spoil that ! We had a room with our own access to outside – they lock up the main doors at 11pm, so essential to have one of these rooms if you plan on staying out later. Massive bunch of keys for the various things including metal grill door to your outside access and electric gate for car. Breakfast was serviced by a lovely young girl, with fresh coffee, fresh fruit salad and yoghurt, a choice of hot breakfast or cereal/toast. Fried breakfast was slightly dubious in parts, but the cat seemed to like the sausage, and the rest was at the least, edible. The site manager was there to meet us on arrival, was helpful in recommending where to go in the area and pointed us in the right direction for the best local restaurants. She was also there to see us off the following day, and was a pleasure. Should maybe mention that when we were there, the pool was green and certainly not useable. There is an outdoor terrace where you can breakfast overlooking it. All in all, if you don’t mind the drive to get there, it’s worth a stay for something a bit different, but wouldn’t recommend for more than a couple of nights.
