We have stayed with 4 persons in the Carrriage House for 3 nights while visiting the Swartbergpas, doing a Meerkat tour early in the morning and visiting an Östrichfarm. We had a very pleasant and relaxing stay at this wonderful accommodation. Graham is a great host and we have enjoyed the nice breakfasts that were served on the porch. I can certainly recommend this place!

What a lovely place. Lizanne and Graham do a marvellous job, with great enthusiasm they have created a place with loads of charme, style and love for every detail. From the very beginning of our stay we felt like being at home. Our children instantly made friends with their nice daughters and played with them until late in the evening. We all wish we would have stayed longer and we are truly grateful for staying there.
