"The beautiful natural landscape and extremely comfortable cottage"

"What a wonderful weekend away! The beautiful natural scenery of the Eastern Free State is the best-kept secret. Mountains, valleys, rivers, cosmos, beautiful scenery wherever you look. The cottage itself is extremely comfortable, contains everything you may need and decorated in an extremely tasteful rustic style, to compliment the house itself and the natural surroundings. With a fireplace inside, an old stove in the kitchen, fireplace outside plus braai area outside, you have no excuse to be cold. Our hostess, Zanet, is extremely gracious, warm and helpful - thank you Zanet for even supplying us with the coffee we forgot at home. I was concerned about safety and security, but once we arrived at our destination, we realized that my concerns were ridiculous - anyone wanting to threaten us would have to go to extreme lengths to succeed and won't succeed.... The reason for which - the only thing which could be made more clear, is that you definitely need a 4x4 to reach this beautiful spot- the road to reach the final destination is not that long, but not suitable for a normal vehicle. We will definitely be back again to enjoy this hidden gem..."
"Friendly house in the mountain"

"We had a lovely stay at Boshoek. A real old farm house with a lovely fireplace and a coal stove for warmth, gas for hot water, a cold fridge and cooking. Two big tables in the kitchen and dining room and a cosy sitting room provide ample opportunity for conversation. Best part was the morning coffee on the north facing stoep early in the morning with the most beautiful view over the mountains."
