Lovely place to take a break from your hectic work life, and it is close to Cape Town.The owner Ewald welcomed us with rusks,a bottle of wine and a bottle of olives, such a lovely surprise.
We had a great time, relaxing in the Hot Tub, star gazing and taking early morning walks in nature.
The peace and quiet is what we needed. I will go back there any time.
Fabulous. 4 out of 5

Stayed a night in November 2020. Memorable sitting in outside hot pool drinking wine. Great place to chill. Very clean rooms. Will be going again definitely.
Friends owner will bring his own wine and olives to you if you ask him.
Superb. 5 out of 5

Overall, our stay was exactly what we were looking for - a peaceful, secluded stay in the middle of a forest. The hot tub under the stars was the perfect way to end the day. The unlimited supply of wood ensured that we were able to keep the water hot and have our braai!

The cool pool during the day was most welcome, as was the communal kitchen with the extra amenities.



A big thank you to our friendly host, Ewald, who went out of his way to make us feel welcome and to ensure that our needs were met.

It was an absolute gem, secluded from any city life, set in a reserve among-st the fynbos. Ewald (host) was super friendly and although there was a hiccup with the booking it was all sorted out for us plus more. I would definitely recommend Avani Lodge and will be back ourselves. The Wood fired hot tub is a must. Till next time!

What a magical getaway! We had a wonderful stay in the middle of nature. We were welcomed by Ewald and surprised with homemade rusks, olives and a great bottle of Shiraz. There is plenty of wood to keep your woodfired bathtub nice and warm. We stayed in Hen of the Woods and it was great.
We will be back.

The most amazing place to be. Our stay at the Magic house was fantastic and private. The host was friendly and we were welcomed with a bottle of red wine hand made by the owner as well as bottled olives and freshly baked rusks. The wood stoked tub outside by the braai was a pleasant surprise. This is a nature lovers retreat at best.

A small town with plenty of character. Absolutely loved how close the wine farms were, and the little stalls on the side of the road had lots to offer. Food at the Botriver Hotel was also great value for money, with super friendly staff!
