Privaat en ideaal vir rus.

Laaste kilometer of 2 wel nodig om 'n nutsvoertuig te hê, maar die privaatheid maak op daarvoor. Huis het bietjie restourasiewerk nodig, maar heerlike plaasgevoel. Bome kan bietjie gesnoei word, geen dam-uitsig nie. Swembad 'n bonus.

Private and ideal for rest.

Last mile or 2 do need to have a utility vehicle, but the privacy makes up for it. House needs some restoration work, but lovely farm feel. Trees can be trimmed a bit, no pond view. Pool a bonus.

Besonderse huis en uitsig.

Was 'n baie lekker en ruim plek. Perfek vir ons gholfgroep en lekker kuier spasie en swembad. Buiten die pad om daar uit te kom, is dit 'n fantastiese plek en baie rustig.

Special house and view.

Was a very nice and spacious place. Perfect for our golf group and nice hanging out space and pool. Apart from the road to get there, it is a fantastic place and very peaceful.

The stay was wonderful. The house and that area is so peaceful and very relaxing. Very beautiful.

The scenery is really beautiful. It is the perfect place to relax and enjoy nature. The caretaker and housekeeper were friendly, helpful and accommodating too. The only thing is that you definitely need a 4x4 when traveling to Casa La Mer. You need to be a good driver as the road is very challenging and the last 2 km is hectic.

Baie dankie vir jou terugvoering. Ek sal dit vir seker met die personeel en skoonmakers opneem en ek vra om verskoning. Ek is teleurgesteld dat mens hulle betaal en vertrou dat die werk ordentelik gedoen sal word maar dan is dit nie. Die pad was beter, maar na laas week se skielike reënbuie het dit vererger en ongelukkig weer verspoel. Ons het stukwerkers juis uitgekry om aan dit te werk in die week, maar die reëns het ons gekelder. Ek weet die eienaar het beplan om pad heelwat te verbeter, maar die kontrakteurs gaan eers volgende jaar moontlik dit kan doen. Ons neem die klagtes op en sal bespreek met eienaar en personeel.

Was bietjie onprofessioneel, plek kort baie aandag.

Toe ons daar aankom was die sleutel binne huis toegesluit deur die skoonmaker, ons moes self oor trailer klim on sleutel binne huis te kry. Die plek was nie baie netjies skoongemaak toe ons daar aankom nie. Die yskas in huis maak nie goed cool soos dit moet nie. Ons het die Vrydagnag nie krag gehad deur die nag oor plugs wat nie reg werk. Ons het Saterdag 'n troue aangehad, krag was af niemand het ons gewaarsku van loadshedding nadat ons gesê het ons book vir troue. Daar is nêrens spieëls naby 'n kragprop om hare te blaas nie.Geen van die deure maak behoorlik toe nie, al die deure het gapings. Glo die plek het high potential, maar is baie verwaarloos vir die prys wat mens betaal.

Was a bit unprofessional, place needs a lot of attention.

When we got there, the key inside the house was locked by the cleaner, we had to climb over the trailer ourselves to get the key inside the house. The place was not cleaned very neatly when we got there. The fridge in the house doesn't make things cool like it should. On Friday night we had no power through the night due to plugs not working properly. We had a wedding on Saturday, power was out no one warned us about loadshedding after we said we were booking for wedding. There are no mirrors anywhere near a power plug to blow hair. None of the doors close properly, all the doors have gaps. Believe the place has high potential, but is very neglected for the price you pay.

Goeie dag Carien,

Die yskas het ons laat toets deur n elektrisient en hy het gewerk dit blyk wel dat iemand aan die knop gedraai het wat sy settings verander en daarom het hy nie so koud gemaak soos hy moes nie, maar hy werk verseker. Ongelukkig het ons geen beheer oor Eskom se loadsheddings skedules nie dus kan ons nie vooraf bepaal wanneer bookings gemaak word of daar krag gaan wees of/of wanneer nie. Ons het dit ook so genoem in ons vooraf info. Ons het wel probleme ondervind met die skoonmaak personeel wat nie hul pligte nakom nie en het nou nuwe aanstellings en verandering aan skoonmaakdienste gemaak, en ons hoop hierdeur dat dit met toekomstige besprekings reg sal wees.

Die huis is baie gerieflik met alles wat jy nodig het. Die hout wat jy kry brand baie goed, moet nie langs die pad koop nie.

Baie lekker plek op jou eie, stil en privaat. Maar nog naby alles in Harties.

The house is very comfortable with everything you need. The supplied wood burns very well, don't buy along the road.

Very nice place on your own, quiet and private. Yet near everything in Marties.

Wouldn’t recommend this place to anyone.

The house hasn’t been cleaned properly for a very long time including the bathrooms. If the house was kept clean the bugs would not be as bad as they are. The lights in the main room, 9 out of 10 don’t work. It’s too dark in there to even read. The electric fence doesn’t work and the gate which doesn’t have a motor is kept open all the time. It never gets locked even on request. The pool was muddy and unusable for the duration of our stay. The access road after a rain was frightening.

Good day

We do make use of cleaning services and the house are cleaned on a regular basis. We also went in an extra day to clean again when you arrived. You must take in consideration the house is situated in the bush up in the mountain so there will be bugs and spiders.

All the globes were replaced with new ones but we did pick up there was an electrical problem on one of the chandelier lights which we said we will get an electrician out to go and fix.

The electric fence is working and our gate work manual (we do not have a motor on it from start). So guest can open and close manually as they prefer.

The pool was definitely not muddy. It was however milky due to the previous day's rain, but we did add in additional chemicals and shock which takes time to clear.

Gemaklike huis met uitstekende uitsig en warm swembad.

Ons was 'n groep van 8 vriende wat vir 2 aande by Casa La Mer was. Die huis is geleë op die dam met mooi uitsigte oor die dam en area. Ek sal wel voorstel dat die ruig bome in die tuin gesnoei word om te sorg vir 'n beter uitsig. Die kuierstoep is lekker, alhoewel 'n tuintafel en stoele ook sal lekker wees om onder die bome te kuier. Die pad na die huis is glad nie geskik vir 'n gewone motor nie, en n 4x4 / bakkie is definitief nodig a.g.v. groot klippe en ongelyke padoppervlak. Sal definitief weer gaan!

Comfortable house with excellent view and warm pool.

We were a group of 8 friends staying at Casa La Mer for 2 nights. The house is located on the dam with nice views over the dam and area. I would suggest that the bushy trees in the garden be pruned to provide a better view. The patio is nice, although a garden table and chairs would also be nice to hang out under the trees. The road to the house is not at all suitable for an ordinary car, and a 4x4 / bakkie is definitely needed because large stones and uneven road surface. Will definitely go again!

Effens teleurgesteld.

Ons was redelik teleurgesteld in die verblyf oor die algemeen. Dit was duidelik dat die huis nie baie deeglik skoongemaak is nie. Een van die kamers het regtig sleg geruik van sigaretrook. Die badkamers en slaapkamers het oral tekens gewys van vuil van 'n geruime tyd, nie net bolangse stof nie. Die beligting is baie swak in die huis en een van die hoofligte in die sitkamer het nie gewerk nie, met die gevolg dat ons met bedlampies oral moes rondbeweeg, selfs in die dag om te kon sien wat in die kombuis aangaan as ons kosgemaak het. Die kombuistafel was feitlik onmoontlik om te gebruik omdat die blad los was en dit toon weer verder van swak instandhouding. Ons het wel lekker gekuier en die omgewing geniet. Net jammer die uitsig oor die dam is toegegroei en kan mens nie die Harties-gevoel kry as jy by die buitebraai-area kuier nie. Die warmwater swembad was heerlik, en so in die winterseisoen kon ons lekker swem. Die kaggel het die huis, wat maar redelik koud is, opgewarm in die aande en gesorg vir lekker kuier. Ek twyfel of ons weer sal gaan as die geleentheid weer kom.

Slightly disappointed.

We were quite disappointed in the stay overall. It was clear that the house had not been cleaned very thoroughly. One of the rooms smelled really bad from cigarette smoke. The bathrooms and bedrooms everywhere showed signs of dirt from some time, not just upstairs dust. The lighting is very poor in the house and one of the main lights in the living room did not work, with the result that we had to move around with bedside lamps, even during the day to be able to see what was going on in the kitchen when we were cooking. The kitchen table was practically impossible to use because the top was loose and this again shows poor maintenance. We did have a good time and enjoyed the surroundings. It's just a shame the view over the pond is overgrown and you can't get the Harties feeling when you visit the outdoor barbecue area. The warm water pool was lovely, and so in the winter season we could have a nice swim. The fireplace warmed up the house, which is quite cold, in the evenings and made for a nice visit. I doubt we will go again if the opportunity comes again.

Die rustigheid van die plek maak dit 'n wonderlike plek om te rus.

Dit is goed ingerig vir 8 mense. Die swembad het die kinders goed besig gehou. Dit was ook baie lekker om die honde saam te neem. Die sekuriteit van die plek was ook goed. Enige probleme wat ons ondervind het was vinnig opgelos bo ons verwagtinge. My enigste probleem was dat dit word geadverteer vir 8 tot 10 mense maar die eetgerei en breekgoed was nie altyd genoeg vir die mense nie.

The tranquility of the place makes it a wonderful place to rest.

It is well equipped for 8 people. The pool kept the kids busy. It was also very nice to take the dogs along. The security of the place was also good. Any problems we encountered were quickly resolved beyond our expectations. My only problem was that it is advertised for 8 to 10 people but the cutlery and crockery was not always enough for the people.

Regtig die moeite werd!

Ons was daar vir 4 nagte en alhoewel die pad nogals werk nodig het, was die bly daar vreeslik lekker, die 2 slaapkamers het elkeen 'n aircon wat gerieflik was in die hitte en die plekkie is klein, maar baie mooi en genoeg plek vir 10 mense. Die huis is eintlik nogals naby aan 'n klomp plekkies in Hartbeespoort self, so dit was ook nuttig.

Really worth it!

We were there for 4 nights and although the road still needs work, the stay there was very nice, the 2 bedrooms each have an aircon which was convenient in the heat and the place is small, but very nice and enough room for 10 people. The house is actually quite close to a lot of places in Hartbeespoort itself, so that was also useful.
