Dit was fantasties.

Liesl, julle plek is fantasties. Daar was alles wat ons benodig gehad het. Ons was by die see en riviere. Ek beveel julle plek aan vir almal wat groot families het en kinders van alle ouderdomme. Dit was die beste vakansie ooit.

Liesl, your place is fantastic. There was everything we needed. We were by the sea and rivers. I recommend your place to anyone who has large families and children of all ages. It was the best vacation ever.

Kersfees om te onthou.

Ek verstaan waarom die plek 'n voorkeurvennoot is! Niks is te veel moeite nie. My dogter en haar vriendinnetjie wou 'n kamer bo hê, maar was nie gemaklik om 'n dubbelbed te deel nie. Liesl was bereid om 'n ekstra bed in een van die kamers te sit. Ek was aangenaam verras dat byna alles voorsien is, swemhanddoeke, boogie boards, bordspeletjies, leesboeke, basiese kruideniersware soos koffie, suiker, blatjang. Ag man, dis sommer soos jou eie vakansie huis!

Christmas to remember.

I understand why the place is a preferred partner! Nothing is too much trouble. My daughter and her girlfriend wanted a room upstairs but were not comfortable sharing a double bed. Liesl was willing to put an extra bed in one of the rooms. I was pleasantly surprised that almost everything was provided, swimming towels, boogie boards, board games, books to read, basic groceries like coffee, sugar, chutney. Oh man, it's just like your own vacation home!

Soveel om te geniet, op 'n bondel of alleen, van die oudste tot die jongste.

Almal het tuis gevoel. Everything about this house is generous, from the spacious design and the ample supply of stuff, to the welcoming and user-friendly policy. Wonderful communal spaces, yet plenty of scope for privacy and isolation. Location could not be better. For some of us this was a return visit, and the kids still think it is heaven.

8 Sandpiper for the win!

After a very stressful year we were so fortunate to come across this gem. The cottage was clean, organised and had all the necessities that we needed. The owners really had thought of everything right down to double adapters and even load shedding lamps. We had such a lovely stay and will definitely be back. If you are looking for a relaxing holiday right on the beach, 8 Sandpiper is the place to stay.

Goeie ronte gholf op Visrivier. Lekker gebraai met goeie geselskap.

Skoon en netjiese verblyf. Alles wat jy benodig weg van jou eie huis is tot jou beskikking. Genoeg bewweg ruimte en slaap plek. DStv vir al jou TV-kanale. Mooi oop strand omtrent 100 meter van huis af. Ideaal vishengel en ander watersport.

Good rounds of golf on Fish River. Nice barbecue with good company.

Clean and tidy accommodation. Everything you need away from your own home is at your disposal. Enough moving space and sleeping place. DStv for all your TV channels. Beautiful open beach about 100 meters from the house. Ideal for fishing and other water sports.

Soveel aandag aan detail. Fantastiese ligging by 'n ongerepte strandoord.

Daar is alles wat vakansiegangers dalk sal benodig. Selfs boeke vir kleuters. Die huisuitleg is lieflik, die linne goeie kwaliteit, die dekor deurgaans pragtig.

Ongelooflik, uitstekend, pragtig, rustig, spesiaal, die beste familievakansie ooit.

Vir ons as families was hierdie die beste vakansie wat ons beleef het. Vir ons kleinkinders en vir onsself was daar meer as genoeg aksie, rus en vreedsaamheid. Wens hierdie was my huis, so spesiaal. Vir Liesl baie dankie dat ons hierdie spesiale plekkie van julle kon deel. Vir Tom, 'n groot dankie vir al die hulp met die aflaai en dat jy ons elke dag besoek het om seker te maak alles is reg en funksioneer. Verlange vreeslik, al is ons net 'n paar dae terug!

For us as families this was the best holiday we have experienced. For our grandchildren and ourselves there was more than enough action, rest and peacefulness. Wish this was my house, so special. For Liesl, thank you very much for allowing us to share this special place of yours. To Tom, a big thank you for all the help with the download and for visiting us every day to make sure everything is up and running. Really longing, even though we are only a few days back!

Perfect unit for a family reunion.

We were pleasantly surprised at the comprehensively equipped kitchen, which is a rare find in holiday homes. The unit is perfectly furnished for the location and type of holiday in this area. Beds are all very comfortable, and the downstairs bedroom is a win for infirm guests. Tom was very friendly and helpful, as well as Liesel (the owner) making sure everything was in perfect working order. Thank you for a wonderful stress free weekend with our family.

Baie lekker gebly, maar sonder internet of TV, en ons het 'n braai gereël om rugby te kyk.

Tom (omsiener) het vir Liesel gesê die DStv is reg terwyl dit nie was nie. Behalwe hiervoor het ons baie lekker gebly. Dankie.

Uitmuntende verblyf teen die see.

Hierdie huis sal ek ten sterkste aanbeveel. Ons geniet altyd die Paastyd saam met ons kinders en kleinkinders. Ons was 6 volwassenes en 4 kinders en daar was nooit 'n tekort aan ruimte vir almal nie. Die kamers met hul badkamers vir elke gesin was so gerieflik. Die heerlike braai en kuierplek het vir heerlike aande om die braaivleisvuur gesorg en ons kon heerlik speletjies speel op die lieflike grasperk. Die strand en see was reg by ons en met die sekuriteit wat gereeld 'n draai maak het ons geen oomblik onveilig gevoel nie. Die opsigter, Tom is baie behulpsaam en die eienares baie vriendelik en tegemoetkomend. Baie dankie vir uitstekende geriewe.

Excellent accommodation by the sea.

I would highly recommend this house. We always enjoy Easter with our children and grandchildren. We were 6 adults and 4 children and there was never a shortage of space for everyone. The rooms with their bathrooms for each family were so comfortable. The delicious barbecue and meeting place made for wonderful evenings around the barbecue fire and we were able to play wonderful games on the lovely lawn. The beach and sea were right next to us and with the security making regular stops we never felt unsafe for a moment. The caretaker, Tom is very helpful and the landlady very friendly and accommodating. Thank you very much for excellent facilities.

Ruim strandhuis, reg op die strand.

8 Sandpiper is 'n baie lekker vakansiehuis. Dit is ruim met oorgenoeg plek vir almal. Ons was 5 volwassenes en 2 kinders en niemand het gevoel iemand is in hul spasie nie. Die beddegoed en handdoeke is goeie kwaliteit en al die ekstras (skoonmaakmiddels, seep, haardroër, muskietweerder ens.) word voorsien. Daar is twee strandmere binne 100 m van die huis en die see reg voor. Die opsigter was baie vinnig en behulpsaam met als. Die huis is wel nie goedkoop nie, maar as spasie vir jou belangrik is, of jul 'n groot groep mense is, sal die huis baie goed werk.

Spacious beach house, right on the beach.

8 Sandpiper is a very nice holiday home. It is spacious with plenty of room for everyone. We were 5 adults and 2 children and no one felt that anyone was in their space. The bed linen and towels are good quality and all the extras (cleaning agents, soap, hairdryer, mosquito repellent etc.) are provided. There are two lagoons within 100 m of the house and the sea right in front. The caretaker was very quick and helpful with everything. The house is not cheap, but if space is important to you, or you are a large group of people, the house will work very well.

Huis is nie die geld werd nie maar ligging is uitstekend.

Die huis het geen DStv gehad die eerste aand nie. Na vele oproepe na die eienaar het hulle ons aangeskakel. Daar is geen foonsein by die huis nie en WiFi is baie swak. Vanaf Vrydagaand tot Saterdagoggend was daar geen elektrisiteit nie, ook geen kragopwekker op die perseel nie. Dus ook geen WiFi of enige foondiens nie. Kombuis, sitkamer en eetkamer was netjies asook die kamers. Die badkamers is in slegte kondisie weens geen onderhoud op die huis nie. Teen R2500 'n nag het ons 'n plek in beter kondisie verwag. Ligging van die huis is fantasties. Ons sal beslis weer hierdie area besoek maar nie hierdie huis nie.

House is not worth the money but location is excellent.

The house had no DStv the first night. After many calls to the owner, they put us through. There is no phone signal at home and WiFi is very weak. From Friday night until Saturday morning there was no electricity, no generator on site. So also no WiFi or any phone service. Kitchen, living room and dining room were tidy as well as the rooms. The bathrooms are in bad condition due to no maintenance on the house. At R2500 a night we expected a place in better condition. Location of the house is fantastic. We will definitely visit this area again but not this house.
