“So much character and amazing value”
Reviewed 10 December 2012

We would come back to this place in a second, it's an absolute gem! Super friendly host, Megan, was there to welcome us when we arrived and chatted us up like we were old family friends. She had great recommendations (The Gallery Restaurant and the Ghost Tour with Ailsa…do them both!) to help us get to know town in the short time we had.

We were pleasantly surprised what a nice place it was considering the price we paid. All four cottages face into a lovely green garden area, great for braai or just hanging out in the sun. The entire property was an oasis of gardens and fruit trees that we were free to pick off of.

The cottage itself was super comfy, well kitted out for some light self-catering with fridge, coffee, kettle, and dinnerware (some of the other cottages are full self-catering). Completely original decorating with all sorts of repurposed furniture and light fixtures, very upscale rustic feel. So much character and thoughtfulness put into everything (the clawfoot tub even had a jar of bubble bath :).

Hope to be back, such a lovely spot!

We really enjoyed our stay at Karoo Khaya. Megan is a wonderful host. She gave us a tour through the garden and all the veggies and fruits where really mouth watering. The rooms are spacious and tastefully decorated.
We would love to come back and will definitely recommend this to friends and family.
