Reviewed 2 August 2014

Picturesque spot in the mountains outside Montagu below Burgher's Pass. Great walks, running and mountain biking for us and the kids. The girls loved the tractor ride and Potjkiekos on the neighbouring Protea Farm; and the highlight was a visit to Avalon Hot Springs. They loved looking at all the gooseberries currently in season on the farm. And we enjoyed the fresh yummy gooseberry jam. We had very cold, rainy and windy weather, but it was warm inside with nice effective wall panels. We were fine with the extra blankets they suggested we bring. The inside fireplace smoked quite a bit though, probably wet wood. The cottages are small, no real sitting area if it's too cold to sit outside, just the two rooms and the small kitchen with table. Also not user-friendly shelves for unpacking clothes in the bedrooms. But it suited our needs, and we were there for only 3 nights. Two downsides … the amount of dog pooh around the cottages from other people's dogs before us perhaps, or the resident dogs … And the bottle labelled "staff tips" inside the cottage which we thought was a bit odd. I've never seen that before at a self-catering spot, or left tips at a self-catering spot. Perhaps that's just us. We would definitely recommend to friends and come back :)

My wife and I and our 2 dogs had a great weekend away.
The Scenery is beautiful, tucked away in the mountains. The weekend we were away was very cold (snow on the mountains) and the indoor jet master did not do much to heat the place, but nothing a couple sherry's couldn't take care off. The accommodation is very basic but that's what you can expect for the price. We will definitely come back!!!!

Lovely, quiet, friendly staff and great tranquility. It truly was 4 nights every cent worth spending for! Waking up to birds chirping away and having coffee and ginger cookies in the morning on our "stoep". Absolutely awesome! We had a great stay and will definately come back again! :)

Keisie cottages are located on a lovely gooseberry farm. Walks are limited and those that are available are heavily overgrown with no markings for direction. if you persist, there are some lovely little rocks pools and the setting of the valley & surrounding mountains is stunning.

Excellent farm for cycling and hiking. There are lots of road ways to cycle on that lead to adjoining farms and also hiking paths that lead into valleys and mountain slopes. We and our dogs enjoyed every minute of the long week end!
The bedroom needs some shelving to accommodate your clothing, we had to leave ours packed in the suitcase. We really loved the sounds of the frogs from the back of the cottage throughout the night.
We really liked the venue and will definitely be back. We like privacy and did not like the closeness of the three cottages, although I must admit that this did not present a problem.
The services from the owners were 5 STAR !

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Keisie Cottages. We had the Gooseberry cottage and found it well equipped for our needs. The only thing I would have liked is a mirror in the bedrooms for drying hair.
