My wife and I stumbled across Besides Still Waters by chance... What a wonderful find! In a beautiful setting, we woke up with the sound of birds singing and the dawn breaking across the lake. Such a pleasure! The loft is perfect for a couple wanting a romantic breakaway. Highly recommended. Sit on the veranda and drink in the atmosphere....

From the first moment we chatted to the owners, I had a good feeling about this trip. When we arrived, we were warmly greeted by Rod and made to feel welcome. There was beautiful hand picked flowers all over our apartment, "The Upper Room". The views of the lake are stunning and we experienced amazing Sunsets and Sunrises whilst there....

My family of four stayed in the cottage. Really enjoyed our stay, far enough out of town for peace and quiet but close enough to Wilderness to pop in to town for a meal if you want to. The cottage is very well equipped for self catering. Fantastic views of the lake. Really enjoyed our stay and would like to...

I was fortunate enough to spend a month in the Loft and found it really difficult to leave. The setting is incredibly peaceful, nestled on a beautiful, well-cared for property overlooking the Langvlei Lake. The over-riding experience is one of tranquillity that settles deep into the marrow of your bones. What a privilege to be able to watch sunrise every...

One of the real privileges of a long-term guest is the opportunity of more than just Hi's & Bye's One is conscious of the gift of time & being able to share something of each other's life journeys & love of Nature, Peace & Beauty. We greatly valued that slice of time. Thank you

My wife and I spent 5 enjoyable and relaxing days in the cottage, with wonderful views over the vlei and its fish eagles - was a very chilled base from which to explore the wonders of the local area.

We booked the whole cottage which was a perfect size for a group of 4 adults and 3 young toddlers. Rod and Hydie were excellent hosts and made us feel extremely welcome.

Just a unique, special place - wonderful setting, delightful hosts with memories to savour. The tranquillity of the water, the birds calling in the sunrise, the every comfort and the thoughtful touches from Rod and Hydie. Who could ask for anything more! We will remember our visit for years to come and hopefully will get back to this lovely spot.

This lovely guesthouse locates just beside a lagoon, and this might be the only place that you can enjoy the sunrise and sunset nearby. I really adore their white-blue themed decor.
