We spent a lovely weekend on this Karoo farm , situated between Calitzdorp and Oudshoorn. As you turn off the R62 into the farm you arrive at a farm store displaying all sorts of homemade goodies and a restaurant which serves typical South African Cuisine and scrumptious roosterkoek ( bread placed on a grill). The guest rooms are all decorated... More

We (2 couples) stayed one night in two very comfortable double rooms, which were very nicely decorated. The tables were nicely set-up for the dinner, which we thoroughly enjoyed. For breakfast we chose the traditional/local option, which was very nice and different to the usual cooked breakfasts. Staff was friendly and helpful. We loved the eco/support local community approach, and... More

Stopped for the best karoo breakfast we've had in a long time! Very friendly people and great value for money. We'll definitely be back! The bnb looks very attractive if one is looking for a karoo getaway on a beautiful farm!

Love visiting this place where the set up reminds me of farmstyle living. A definate hit with kids to play and explore whilst the adults can enjoy sumptuous food and drinks. Beautiful farm style shop to purchase some lovely home made items and foods.
