We really enjoyed our stay at Fynbos Estate. We stayed at the Caracal Cottage which had everything we needed. The fans were really appreciated seeing it was very hot at the time we visited. Bed - super comfy! The views were lovely, and the pool at the main house was a godsend in the hot weather! The one downside was the flies - but it is a farm so possibly expected and maybe particularly bad at the time of year we visited. It just made going for long walks hard which was a little disappointing. Otherwise highly recommend!

Lovely location. Enjoyed the trees, dogs and the thoughtful gestures: Fresh milk in fridge, hot water bottle. Owners on the spot for support.

Loved the braai area and all the bird-life and the peace and quiet. Good value for money. A pair of kitchen scissors would have been useful. Kitchen otherwise very well fitted out.
