"Prentjie mooi met baie karakter. Regte plaas gevoel vir die stadskind. Dankie vir die vriendelike eienaars sal verseker weer by julle wil kom kuier en hopenlik sal die meerkat ons weer kom "entertain"! Beslis 'n plekkie om te beleef."

"What a find! We'll definitely be back for more! Excellent facilities, warm and friendly hospitality. Incredible stars and quietness. Probably the brightest facet of the "Jewel of the Karoo". Looking forward to our next visit."

"We enjoyed our stay very much. Ansie and Johan went over and above to make us feel at home. After a long trip a dip in the pool, a braai and a good night's rest was all we needed. Highly recommended! We will return next time for a longer stay."

"We happened to stay at Schoemans cottage during the coldest week in the last 30 years so experienced frozen pipes in the morning. It was rather cold in and out but I must say that the hosts definitely tried to keep us warm as best they could with sherry one evening and an extra heater for our room. Johan was so friendly and hospitable and our boys loved him. the kids loved playing with the meerkats and cats. The cottage is very cute and has all that is needed to self-cater. The property is vast and there is a great hike to the top of the mountain behind the cottage with stunning views. If you go in winter, bring very warm clothes just to be safe."

"Awesome stopover"

By Danielle, South Africa
"An amazing place tucked away in the mountains with beautiful views of the surrounds as well as the starry night sky like we never see in Joburg. The cottage was beautifully set up and the buildings were all so quaint. My little boys loved running around the farmyard and seeing different animals. Wish we could have stayed more than our one night stopover."

"The house and farm were a special treat in our long trip back home! Our hosts were very kind, thank you. Just a warning: the white cat loves sandwiches with cream cheese - do not leave any about. :-D"
