Ons het in die donker arriveer, en moes vroeg weer ry, maar het heerlik gebly.

Dankie vir die ekstra moeite om die tafel te dek, en die oond aan te steek. Dit het ons baie welkom te laat voel.

We arrived in the dark, and had to drive again early, but had a great stay.

Thank you for the extra effort to set the table and light the oven. It made us feel very welcome.

Maclear plaasverblyf - ruim en rustig.

Die plek is baie goed toegerus. Ruim en aparte braaikamer. Wat mens ongelukkig met ander gaste deel. Verder baie goed! Mooi, ouwêreldse plaashuis en uitsigte en plaasgeluide en hartlike ontvangs. Die pad vanaf Maclear is net tans uitgery na die reën.

Maclear farm stay - spacious and peaceful.

The place is very well equipped. Spacious and separate braai room. Which one unfortunately shares with other guests. Other than that, very good! Beautiful, old-world farmhouse and views and farm sounds and warm welcome. The road from Maclear has just been driven out after the rain.

We had a very comfortable stay-over and our host, Linky, was warm and welcoming.

Linky's attention to detail was excellent, ensuring we had all we needed during loadshedding. We are sorry that our stay-over was one night only as there is so much more to explore. We will definitely revisit the farm.

Besonderse plek en ligging. Baie goeie ontvangs en diens.

Ons het ons verblyf in Fairbairn Guest Farm terdeë geniet. Die fasiliteite is uitstekend en die diens baie goed. Die stil rustige plaas omgewing in 'n mooi landskap is verkwikkend. Ons het die pad heel goed gevind vir 'n grondpad. Die Naude's Nek gedeelte van die toegangspad het 'n paar "skurwe plekke" maar nie gedeeltes wat baie moeilik sal ry as dit nat is nie.

Special place and location. Very good reception and service.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Fairbairn Guest Farm. The facilities are excellent and the service very good. The quiet peaceful farm environment in a beautiful landscape is invigorating. We found the road quite good for a dirt road. The Naude's Nek section of the access road has some "bumpy spots" but not sections that would be very difficult to ride when wet.

Ontspannende wegbreek.

Ons het 'n heerlike wegbreek by Fairbairn geniet waar ons heerlik kon ontspan in die pragtige natuurskoon en die vars berglug kon inasem. 'n Verskeidenheid voëls kon besigtig word in die tuin. Ons het lekker gekuier en speletjies gespeel in die pragtige braaikamer. Ons sal graag weer by Fairbairn gaan kuier.

Relaxing getaway.

We enjoyed a wonderful break at Fairbairn where we could relax in the beautiful scenery and breathe in the fresh mountain air. A variety of birds could be seen in the garden. We had a good time and played games in the beautiful braai room. We would love to visit Fairbairn again.

Absoluut die mees fantastiese plek ooit!

Seker die mees asemrowende fantastiese plek ooit. Die plaas is luuks, geriewe fantasties, totale privaatheid en en en! Hoogs aanbeveel. Enigste probleem is geen Vodacom opvangs nie, maar natuurlik is dit glad nie die eienaars of plek se skuld nie. Gelukkig is daar WiFi beskikbaar op die plaas. Beslis die moeite werd om te gaan kuier!

Probably the most breathtakingly fantastic place ever. The farm is luxurious, facilities fantastic, total privacy and and and! Highly recommended. Only problem is no Vodacom reception, but of course this is not the fault of the owners or the place at all. Fortunately, WiFi is available on the farm. Definitely worth a visit!

Baie netjiese eenheid, en jy kan op die hele plaas gaan stap wat prentjie mooi is. Ek sal Fairbairn enige tyd aanbeveel en die eienaar is 'n lieflike vrou. Ontbyt is ook aan te beveel in die kuierkamer met 'n pragtige uitsig op die berge.

Great welcome, wonderful hospitality, excellent catered meals and perfectly equipped for self-catering.

One of our party had special dietary restrictions. I advised Sebastiaan some days prior to our stay and he didn't hesitate to provide us with a dinner that fitted the bill. The rooms were very comfortable and the showers are excellent. Everything was spotless. Breakfast was top class and we especially enjoyed the fact that everyone was seated at one table. It makes for good interaction between groups of guests. Tranquil surroundings. Highly recommended.

Awesome surroundings, great for a one night stop or for a few days to really explore.

Spacious accommodation. A communal eating area has great views and an indoor braai facility. Each unit/house had its own cooking/prep area as well. Host was extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating. My kids spent the rest of the holiday asking when we would go back to Sebastian's house! My husband is an avid birder and took great joy in the fluff-tail presence and the display flight of the snipe at dawn/dusk. We also watched crowned cranes flying over to roost. My sons loved the short walk to a mountain stream where they filled their water bottles with fresh mountain water.

Nadat ons uiteindelik daar gearriveer het, was dit 'n heerlike ervaring. Ou plaashuis met ou beddegoed. Alles baie skoon. Was nogal skrikkerig so heeltemal alleen op plaas sonder noodnommers binne huis. Gasheer was vreeslik behulpsaam en vriendelik.

Fairbairn is in n pragtige omgewing geleë. Die ontvangs was baie vriendelik. Daar is 'n pad na Rhodes wat baie natuurskoon is. 'n 4x4-voertuig is nodig om heel pad tot op Rhodes te ry. Ons het 'n lekker aandete en ontbyt geniet.

Fairbairn Guest Farm is 'n still, rustige plaas met net die geluide van die natuur. Die personeel is baie vriendelik en behulpsaam en het uit hulle pad gegaan om dit vir ons baie spesiaal te maak.

FANTASTIES ... het nie woorde om dit te beskryf nie.

Absolute waarde vir geld, ongelooflik netjies, kos is om van te droom, gasvryheid op sy beste. Dis die ideale plek om te gaan wegkruip vir die gejaagde stad ... of om selfs 'n boek te gaan skryf!
