“Aloe Ridge”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

We had a lovely weekend in Aloe Ridge. The dirt road to get there is not the best, but by no means a terrible experience. We had a very warm welcome and a great dinner at Round the Bend lodge to start off our weekend.
The rooms are great and the view and surroundings beautiful. One just hopes that they will clear away more of the alien trees in the surrounds. Overall a lovely stay and we will definitely return.

On the spur of the moment, three of us decided to take a three day break assuming this would be a bit of "Glamping"!! We were completely, wonderfully surprised to find ourselves in the middle of very beautiful nowhere in the lap of luxury.

Fully furnished, including linen and fluffy towels, braai wood and all the mod cons, such as a satellite tv, a dishwasher and both indoor and outdoor showers, every little detail has been thought of. Tastefully decorated and built using the local stone and thatch, each house is cleverly designed to maximize the stunning river views whilst being subtly private from each other. The pool built into the deck tops off the generous patio complete with outdoor dining table and sun loungers.

Whilst there is absolutely loads to do organized by the Felix Unite Team, we chose to watch the rafters go by on the river, while enjoying a glass of chilled wine (plenty ice in the freezer!)

Lastly a huge Thanks to Max, Jackie, Lisa and Hetta for making our stay so easy, pleasant and relaxing, as well as for making the best GnT's on the river!

We'll definitely be back (again and again!)

I rented 2 houses for my birthday weekend at Aloe Ridge and it was beyond expectation. From check in to check out everything about this place was perfect. The houses are beautiful inside and very well equipped. The views from the houses are breath taking and the sound of the river in the background is music to the ears. The staff is friendly and very helpful. I cannot wait to visit Aloe Ridge again!!! Thank you Theunis and everyone at Felix Unite for an unforgettable weekend away! Tip: The gravel road leading to Aloe Ridge is not very sports car friendly so go in your 4x4 or utility vehicle if possible.

My wife and I spent the long weekend in June at the Kilimanjaro house - and what an experience.

Although a 4x4 would probably get there easier, we did eventually get there with my Corolla :)
Beautiful thatch roof house, wooden floors, private deck and spectacular views of the Breede river awaited. Although the group provides a great assortment of adventure (river rafting, foefie slide, climbing wall, ect.) we decided to stay indoors and enjoy the indoor fireplace. A stack of wood, dishwasher, DSTV, Braai are on the deck and a lot of space made for a wonderful weekend. The self made concrete bath did not really contain the heat of the hot water, but hey - it looks great. It could do with a proper Queen sized bed instead of the 2 attached single bed.

Perfect place for a couples breakaway or to get the family or friends away from the city. It honestly felt like it was just us and nature as we were not once bothered by anyone. We will definitely be back. Thanks guys
