Baie netjies en gerieflike verblyf.

Ons het die cottage terdee geniet. Die aircons was 'n lafenis in die Januarie hitte tesame met die binnebraai. Die plek is baie netjies toegerus. Het ook na die plaas gaan kyk en 'n draai deur die plaas gery. Sal graag eendag daar wil gaan bly saam die hele familie.

Very neat and comfortable accommodation.

We thoroughly enjoyed the cottage. The aircons were a relief in the January heat along with the indoor grill. The place is very neatly equipped. Also went to look at the farm and drove around the farm. Would like to stay there one day with the whole family.

Heerlik "off the beaten track"!

Die huisie was pragtig en smaakvol toegerus. Dit het die grondpad soontoe absoluut die mooite werd gemaak. Vriendelik ontvang. Kalahari op sy beste.

Delicious "off the beaten track"!

Very beautiful and we had a good time, but the house needs maintenance and the kitchen was not very clean.

I think the groups are booked too much on each other. Staff did not have time to clean properly. You can address it. Also the windows of the house were very dirty. Kitchens in residential units did not have cups in them. Little things that need to be addressed and brought up to date.

Ons gaan beslis weer.

Freddie was baie behulpsaam en só vriendelik! Baie goeie diens en baie lekker huisie! Ons het baie tuis en gemaklik gevoel. Hulle het ons ook toestemming gegee om by die ander deel van die plaas te gaan swem. Uiters aangenaam in daardie hitte (en load shedding).

We will definitely go again.

Freddie was very helpful and so friendly! Very good service and very nice house! We felt very at home and comfortable. They also gave us permission to go swimming at the other part of the farm. Extremely pleasant in that heat (and load shedding).

Uitstekende bestemming om die Kalahari te beleef.

Die regte plek om die Kalahari se stilte en rustigheid te beleef. Die personeel is uitstekend en behulpsaam. Die verblyf is puik en dit is die beste plek om rustigheid te verkry.

Excellent destination to experience the Kalahari.

The right place to experience the Kalahari's silence and tranquility. The staff are excellent and helpful. The accommodation is great and it is the best place to find tranquility.

Enjoyable stay, but needs more personal attention.

A beautiful setting and some thought given to the accommodation, a nice thought is ice in the freezer. We did find all the plates, cooking products very dusty and needed cleaning before use, seems like n- one has stayed here in a while. No coffee press nor milk for coffee, no emergency lights in living area nor torches (now stage 6 load shedding). No Wi-Fi available and no advise on extremely bad road to be experienced from Askham to the farm which is badly rutted and travelling is approx 20kms per hr in 4x4.

Rus vir die siel.

Ons het heerlik gebly en daar was alles wat ons nodig gehad het. Ons kinders het heeltyd in die rooisand gespeel. Daar is 'n paar instandhouding werk wat aandag benodig. Duideliker kommunikasie sal goed wees, veral i. v. m. "daaglikse skoonmaakdienste en daaglikse houtvoorsiening" soos aangedui op die webtuiste se beskrywing. Laasgenoemde dienste was nie beskikbaar. Dis 'n pragtige plek! Ons kom beslis weer.

Rest for the soul.

We had a lovely stay and there was everything we needed. Our children played in the red sand all the time. There are some maintenance jobs that need attention. Clearer communication would be good, especially i. f. m. "daily cleaning services and daily wood supply" as indicated on the website's description. The latter services were not available. It's a beautiful place! We will definitely come again.

Daar kan dalk gekyk word om die eetgerei te vervang en net weer deur die lys van toerusting gaan. Van die items is nie volledig nie.

A blissful stay for annual introspections.

The tranquillity of the environment was just what I needed and we love the game drive. I would definitely bring my whole family back for a collective break away.

A great experience! Don't miss this location when travelling the Red Dune Route to Van Zylsrus

Had the opportunity to meet the new owner, Nico van de Berg at the Farmstead. It is a fantastic location and the whole ambience and the fantastic facilities can only make for an unforgettable stay!

Awesome, relaxing stay, great place!

We had a great time! Loved the cottage and its surroundings. Just what we needed to relax and forget about everything. Ferdi and rest of the staff were very friendly. We enjoyed the drive on the farm as well. I will definitely recommend it to anyone. Would love to go back there sometime in the future.
