Goeie diens, prys bietjie hoog, maar die privaatheid en stilte maak die prys aan.

Die privaatheid van in die middel van nêrens, geen verkeer gehoor, lekker stilte baie geniet. Alles wat basies nodig is, is beskikbaar.

Good service, price a bit high, but the privacy and silence makes up for the price.

Enjoyed the privacy of being in the middle of nowhere, no traffic heard, nice silence. Everything that is basically needed is available.

Rustigheid van die Karoo se platteland/plaas baie geniet.

Rustige Karooplaasatmosfeer. Naby Laingsburg vir kos, onderhoud en bankdienste geleë. Kort stukkie grondpad na huisie in goeie toestand en geskik vir sedanvoertuie. Netjiese en goedversorgde blyplekkie.

Tranquil Karoo farm atmosphere. Located near Laingsburg for food, maintenance and banking services. Short piece of dirt road to cottage in good condition and suitable for sedan vehicles. Neat and well-maintained accommodation.

Salig op die plaas

Die kothuisie is basies, maar goed toegerus met alles wat mens benodig. Jy kom nie hier bly vir luuksheid nie, maar vir die ongelooflike stilte en rustigheid wat jou omring. Grondpad vanaf die N1 is mak genoeg vir klein karretjies. Ellen is 'n uitstekende gasvrou en altyd beskikbaar wanneer mens iets benodig.

Happy on the farm

The cottage is basic, but well equipped with everything you need. You don't come here for luxury, but for the incredible silence and tranquility that surrounds you. Dirt road from the N1 is tame enough for small cars. Ellen is an excellent hostess and always available when you need something.

Fantastiese diens en gasvryheid, ligging is uitstekend, rustig en ontspannende atmosfeer.

Ons het uitstekende diens van beide webtuiste en die eienaar van Elto Karoo Stay Guest Farm geniet. Ek is onmiddellik na ek bespreek het gekontak en gereeld op hoogte gehou. Die ontvangs by die gastehuis was baie goed en mens het goeie WiFi-toegang. Alles was netjies en die instruksies was duidelik. Die uiteensetting van die gastehuis is prakties en aantreklik met 'n binnebraai/kuierarea wat ontspannend is. In kort, dis 'n tipiese asemrowende Karoo-omgewing wat goed is vir die siel en die gemoed. Hoogs aan te veel.

Fantastic service and hospitality, location is excellent, peaceful and relaxing atmosphere.

We enjoyed excellent service from both the website and the owner of Elto Karoo Stay Guest Farm. I was contacted immediately after booking and kept up to date. The reception at the guest house was very good and you have good WiFi access. Everything was neat and the instructions were clear. The layout of the guest house is practical and attractive with an indoor barbecue/lounge area that is relaxing. In short, it's a typical breathtaking Karoo environment that is good for the soul and the mind. At most too much.

Very clean and tidy, everything we required was there.

Very peaceful and lovely Karoo scenery. Recently had about 20 mm of rain on the farm, so it looked nice and green. Very cold night but we had plenty of wood for the fire to keep warm!

The karoo stay was as remote and quiet as we had hoped.

The cottage was well equipped with everything available that we needed, and the host was friendly and helpful. Anyone who would enjoy a remote, out of the way, and different experience, would love this as much as we did.

We almost added you to Google Maps to help other visitors, but thought maybe this was deliberately left off. But it would help if you did add your location on Google Maps.

This was an ideal stop-over. I had to isolate the water supply to clean the ball vale of toilet cistern to get it to flow and fill the cistern. Please fit a filter on the water supply to fine out the sand korreltjies that build up and block the toilet flush valve. Our hostess was great. Thank you. The cabin windows could have been position in fat better places to get more light and more airflow. If you intend to build more accommodation units, please consider this. I would visit again.

Heerlik gebraai en geslaap.

Ek was baie beïndruk met die plek. Hoewel dit baie naby aan die N1 is was daar geen geraas van voertuie nie. Die akkommodasie is 'n plaaskothuis met 'n gemaklik en beskutte braai en kuierarea. Kombuis ten volle toegerus. Sal graag volgende keer bietjie langer wil bly.

I was very impressed with the place. Although it is very close to the N1 there was no noise from vehicles. The accommodation is a farm cottage with a comfortable and sheltered braai and social area. Kitchen fully equipped. Would like to stay a little longer next time.

Very rustic, but awesome to just be out in the veld. Nice braai area. Eveyrthing you need is on hand.

Great to be out in nature, under the stars at night and not much light pollution.

Pragtige Karoo-wegbreek! Wonderlike herlaai-plek.

Eltos farm stay is n pragtige karoo-huisie met alles wat mens nodig het vir n wegbreek om Karoo-lug in te asem, sterre te kyk, die son te sien opkom oor die berg en die ooptes om jou te geniet. Ellen en Tobie is baie hulpvaardig en gasvry. Stel net voor dat genoem word dat dit grondpad van ongeveer 3.6 kilometers van die Nasionale pad na die huisie is.

Eltos farm stay is a beautiful Karoo house with everything you need for a break to breathe Karoo air, look at the stars, see the sun rise over the mountain and the open spaces to enjoy you. Ellen and Tobie are very helpful and hospitable. Just suggest that it is mentioned that it is dirt road of about 3.6 kilometers from the National road to the cottage.
