“Nothing was too much trouble to make sure everything was working for us.”
Reviewed 20 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We had a great stay with a group of friends sharing the house. It is lovely, and everything was within walking distance. There was a lovely braai that we could use and the patio in the sun was perfect on the chilly mornings.

“Lovely Relaxed Home to visit”
Reviewed 19 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

A lovely place to stay at. We had 6 family members who stayed at Nellsbells Cottage and we enjoyed it thoroughly. The cottage is well laid out and close to amenities. We also had great service as the hot water for the upstairs shower was not working (cold water only) which can happen in the best of places. It was rectified very quickly and we were extremely satisfied. Lovely place to relax in as interior is very pleasant.

We were very happy with the Cottage which was a short walk from town and close to all local amenities, yet we had a Garden to relax in.

“Beautiful house”
Reviewed 13 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

We had an awesome family get together in a lovely house. We loved the "afrikana" pieces! Well equipped kitchen, more than you need! Kids loved the garden and grownups the wrapbaround stoep! Will be visiting again, thank you Andrien for sharing your house!

“A Home away from home”
Reviewed 28 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We were really surprised at what we received for our money. This is a home away from home with all and much more than we expected. The home is more than sufficiently equipped with crockery and cutlery, bedding, etc. All the matters that we pointed out to Yolande were efficiently and very quickly attended and corrected. The positioning of the home is in a very quiet area and easily reached. To use as a base will be a very good idea as all the sight-seeing activities can be easily reached from here. The various restaurants in the area are very great and within walking distance to work up an appetite. The gardens are well kept and the birds that visit develop a very relaxing atmosphere. Well done Nelsbells! We will be back.

“Nice but not what I expected”
Reviewed 18 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The house is very neat and nicely decorated. The location however is not great as it is very close to the school, so if you have a midweek stay it is very noisy. The neighbours were also doing renovations which unfortunately added to the noise level.

It has everything that you may need and the owner was very friendly and helpful!

I would recommend it for a weekend stay, not a weekday.

Dear Chantelle
Thank you for taking time to write a review. We value your feedback. Its unfortunate that the noise from our neighbours renovations and the school kids did not afford you the peace and quiet that you were looking forward to. Weekends are definetly more peaceful.
Your feedback is much appreciated.
All the best
