Step 3 – Stay With Us

Choose one of our 4 cosy self-catering cottages and escape into nature. Sip our wines at the end of a relaxing day on the stoep as the sun sets over the manicured vineyards. Soak your body or enjoy a romantic moment by relaxing in a private wood-fired Turkish bath under the stars. Marvel at the stars, bright from the stillness of the night sky. Wake up to the sound of birds and the peace of the surrounding mountains. Feel the fresh air and soft breeze by taking a walk on the farm. Visit or tour the local scenery and villages. Indulge in whatever brings you peace. Simply choose to rest or read. Find yourself, find your partner without deadline or distraction from television, radio or mobile phone. Board games and wireless internet are available.

Our cottages are equipped with all that you will need to enjoy a comfortable visit, whether solo or couple or family or friends. Cool in summer and with fireplaces for long, romantic evenings in the winter. Share a special moment in your very own private wood-fired Turkish bath next to the stoep. Each cottage has all you need in the kitchen – stove, microwave, fridge, crockery and cutlery – if you choose to cook for yourself. Alternatively, relax enjoy a lekker braai on the covered stoep with one of the wines straight from the cellar. We supply linen and towels so you need not bring for your stay.

Terms & Conditions

Water:  With the current water situation, we are watching our water usage.  If you are not going to use your Turkish Bath please let us know so that we don’t waste water by filling it up unnecessarily.
For those that do use the Turkish Baths, after you have departed we use the water on the garden.

Wood: We provide 1 complimentary bag of wood at each cottage for use in the braai or Turkish Bath.  Should you require more than this for your stay please notify us prior to your arrival so that we can organise it with a private contractor.  Note: we do not keep wood on the farm any longer.  Each bag of wood costs R40 (15-18 pieces per bag).  To heat the Turkish Bath per night,  2 -3 bags in coolish weather might be needed but in winter (when very cold) up to 5 bags can be used.   You are welcome to bring your own wood, there is also wood available at the local farm stalls in the area.

Arrival and Departure: We ask that you arrive from 2pm onwards and leave by 10am, so that we have enough time to clean the cottages between bookings.

Deposit: We ask a 100% deposit within 72 hours to secure your booking. Confirmation is required within 24 hours to secure short-term bookings.

Payment: We will supply our bank details on the invoice when bookings are made. We ask that you email us your proof of deposit, with your name and invoice no on it as the reference. Without this, we will cancel your booking reservation so the cottage may be used by another guest. We suggest you confirm that we have received your deposit.

Cancellation: We prefer you do not cancel but understand this sometimes is unavoidable. If you cancel more than 14 days before your arrival, we will give you a full refund, less service fees.  For cancellations within 14 days of arrival, there are no refunds.

Peace: We wish you and our other guests a peaceful stay with us. Please respect this by avoiding loud noise, music or television. Please do not leave lights on unnecessarily, not only to avoid light pollution but to save energy.

Pets and Smoking: We do NOT allow pets. Please do not smoke in any cottage.

Wifi:  Please note that our wifi is slower than in the city as we do not have fibre optic lines.

Cleaning: Cleaning is included if you are staying with us for more than 4 days. Just ask in advance if you need any extra cleaning so we can arrange this for you (a small fee is charged to cover costs).
Laundry (washing and ironing) can also be arranged for a small fee.

Rates: Our rates include 15% VAT. We increase our rates annually on 1 February.

Minimum Booking Period: Bookings during peak periods (school holidays, Public Holiday weekends, all weekends, Breedekloof Festival weekends) must be for a minimum of 2 nights.
