Lourika en Adrian is ongelooflik gasvry en mens voel sommer dadelik tuis.

Ons het beslis baie lekker gekuier. Lourika en Adrian is ongelooflik gasvry en mens voel sommer dadelik tuis. Terwyl ons daar was, was dit oes en olyfolie parstyd en hulle het ons gewys wat dit alles behels. Die huis se stoep is een van die rustigste plekke met 'n pragtige uitsig oor die plaas en berge. Ons het elke oggend daar, onder komberse, begin met koffie. Natuurlik later wyn - jy kan die hele dag daar spandeer. Heerlike gesin - kuiertyd! Die "ekstra" spesiale gasvryheid soos die plaaseienaars, elektriese komberse op die beddens en spesiale badkamerseep en lyfroom om maar net 3 te noem was oulik - dankie daarvoor. Wens ons kon langer bly! Kan Haaskraal beslis aanbeveel. Ons sal weer daar gaan kuier.

Lourika and Adrian are incredibly hospitable and you feel right at home.

We definitely had a great time. Lourika and Adrian are incredibly hospitable and you feel right at home. While we were there it was harvest and olive oil pressing time and they showed us what it all entailed. The house's stoep is one of the most peaceful places with a beautiful view of the farm and mountains. We started every morning there, under blankets, with coffee. Of course later wine - you can spend the whole day there. Lovely family - visitation time! The "extra" special hospitality like the farm owners, electric blankets on the beds and special bathroom soap and body lotion to name just 3 were lovely - thank you for that. Wish we could have stayed longer! Can definitely recommend Haaskraal. We will visit there again.

Friendly, safe, comfortable.

Our 3-week stay at Haaskraal Gastehuis has exceeded our expectations. Lourika and Adrian are super friendly people and they have made us feel at home from day one. The house is fantastic and very comfortable. Being relatively close to the farm activity is very nice and informative. The area is very safe and great for walking. Wellington is nearby for shopping (and swimming in the municipal pool), and also Stellenbosch and Franschhoek are a maximum 40-minute drive. Haaskraal is a great location to relax.

Ongelooflik lekker ons kom tot rus en gesels en speel saam plek.

Ons het dit baie geniet. Ons is een gesin van oma, volwasse kinders met hulle klein kinders. Die stoep en die uitsig is fantasties. Ook al is hierdie een 'working farm', die stilte en jy is iewers in een baie mooi stukkie van die land gevoel is groot. Die stoep is fantasties vir heerlike kuiers, spelletjies met die klein kinders. Die hekkies hou hulle na aan die pragtige groot huis wat met smaak is ingerig. Ek is jaloers op sommige items. Goed gevulde kombuis en die lang tafel by die binnebraai nooi een mens uit om saam te sit en lekker te gesels. Ons het ons Sinterklaas naweek baie geniet en eintlik is 2 nagte te min. Ons sal seker weer moet kom. Ons uitstappie naar een wynhuis in Wellington (Bosman) was vir elk van ons een fees! Dankie en gaan so aan, julle bied een pragtige bly plek aan.

Unbelievably nice we get to rest and chat and play together.

We enjoyed it very much. We are one family of grandma, adult children with their small children. The porch and the view are fantastic. Even though this one is a 'working farm', the silence and the feeling that you are somewhere in a very beautiful part of the country is great. The stoep is fantastic for lovely visits, games with the small children. The hedges keep them close to the beautiful large house which has been furnished with taste. I am jealous of some items. A well-stocked kitchen and the long table at the indoor barbecue invite one person to sit together and have a nice chat. We really enjoyed our Sinterklaas weekend and actually 2 nights is too little. We will definitely have to come again. Our trip to a wine house in Wellington (Bosman) was a celebration for each of us! Thank you and keep up the good work, you offer one beautiful happy place.

An excellent stay!

Lourika was extremely friendly, welcoming, and accommodating. The house is very well equipped and an absolute gem with the best sunrise from the stoep. Beautiful and peaceful farm surroundings. We enjoyed our stay and highly recommend Haaskraal Guesthouse.

We had an exceptional stay.

Visiting with my sister and Haaskraal was a haven for us. We were safe and warm in stunning surroundings. Loreka and Adrian were so caring and attentive, I don't think one minor detail was left unattended. Load shedding was no problem and the security was amazing. Very sad to leave. Great location and olive oil as well!

Three nights and days in luxury for three retired couples.

The huge farmhouse is roomy, with all facilities and more. We enjoyed the view from the wide veranda, braai in the dining room, made a snug fire in the lounge at night, played bridge next to the pool, and took bracing walks around the farm. Laurika made us very welcome and went out of her way to accommodate our needs. Although rated as three stars it feels like five. Battery lights were provided in all rooms for load shedding but Wi-Fi is then not available.

I loved hosting you. Such amazing friends and beautiful people that we would love to see back at Haaskraal Guesthouse. Remember, we have space for 4 more guests and can host up to 10 people. We have taken your advice and promptly installed an inverter to ensure uninterrupted Wi-Fi during Eskom load shedding. I hope to see you back soon again.

An absolute gem!

Haaskraal is more than a guesthouse, it's an experience. The house is absolutely beautiful, the photos don't really do it justice. The house was spotlessly clean and so well-equipped with many thoughtful touches. Lourika was an excellent host who made us feel so welcome. Her warmth and generosity of spirit made the stay extra special. Our children absolutely loved feeding the resident chickens and exploring the farm. If you're in need of some respite from the city, Haaskraal is the perfect place to recharge. Fresh morning walks, lazy days at the pool and sundowners on the best porch were exactly what the doctor ordered. We'll be back again, and again!

Beautiful farm house for a peaceful country side retreat.

The house has been beautifully renovated and furnished. There was everything we needed and more in the kitchen and bathrooms. The front stoep opens to beautiful views. Louwrika was so friendly and helpful. The kids really enjoyed the farm, feeding the chicken and alpacas and visiting the Nguni cows.

Heerlike ou plaashuis.

'n Heerlike ruim ou plaashuis met groot kamers. Die eienaars het baie moeite gedoen met die ouwêreldse dekor en die kombuis is toegerus met alles waaraan jy kan dink. Die stoep is 'n lekker kuierplek, en so ook die binnebraai met die lang tafel. Ons het die wynkelder baie geniet, en ook die pragtige skaakstel en baie boeke deur die hele huis. Die hoenders en honde het ook vir baie vermaak gesorg. Let wel die derde slaapkamer kan net vanaf die stoep bereik word.

Lovely old farmhouse.

A lovely spacious old farmhouse with large rooms. The owners have put a lot of effort into the old world decor and the kitchen is equipped with everything you can think of. The stoep is a nice place to hang out, and so is the indoor barbecue with the long table. We really enjoyed the wine cellar, and also the beautiful chess set and many books throughout the house. The chickens and dogs also provided a lot of entertainment. Note that the third bedroom can only be reached from the porch.
