We wanted a farm experience in the Karoo and got more than we ever anticipated. From the time we arrived to the time we left we were hosted by two amazing people. PC and the award-winning Chef Marisca are a delight. The room in the old farmhouse was comfortable and the silence were wonderful. The short game drive to the Hippos at sunset was a bonus we did not expect. The dinner and breakfast was what you would expect from that kind of environment. We could have stayed on for at least 2 more days.

Superb. 5 out of 5

Stay was very good, didn't have much interaction with the staff as we got there very late at night, driving back from Pretoria and we left before breakfast the next morning but my husband was at reception and he said they were very nice to him. We can stay longer to sit by the pool and the outside area but we had to get back. I would recommend it.

Superb. 5 out of 5
