When we got there, the first thing that caught our eye was that there was bad signal, just enough to let the loved ones know we are safe and we loved that. The unit itself is very neat, the beds comfy and the bathroom spacious. The owners are very friendly. We spend a whole day away from any phones and only realised what the time was when the chickens came to say good night. Will definitely go again.

What a lovely place! Wonderfully equipped, comfortable, quiet, yet near enough to Parys and Potch, Vredefort Dome and other attractions to make so great day trips. Owners and staff are very helpful and congenial. A warm welcome and beautiful scenery awaits. Peace and rest are at the order of the day. Highly recommended!
