Magical, quiet, revitalising. A must stay while travelling through the Karoo.

One night in this beautiful cottage is just not enough. The elegantly decorated interior reflects the incredible natural beauty that surrounds you while staying here. We had our fur kid with us who just loved a swim in the dam while we sat on the stoep having sundowners while the sun put on a magical 'show' while setting. We will definitely be back for a longer stay to explore the farm some more. It's truly a place one can go to and switch off from the frantic world we live in.

Hi Lindsey
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a 5-star feedback. It really made our day. It's heart-warming to hear your kind words and that you enjoyed your stay. We are looking forward to hosting you and your fur kid again!

Rusplek vir jou siel en om jouself weer te vind.

Dit was heerlik en ontspannend. Ek het alles vergeet en die stilte was skoon vreemd omdat dit amper "té stil" klink. Ek het uitgerus teruggegaan huis toe.

Resting place for your soul and to find yourself again.

It was lovely and relaxing. I forgot everything and the silence was quite strange because it almost sounded "too quiet". I went back home rested.

Sielerus op sy beste!

Hidden Karoo Cottage het my verwagtinge ver oortref! Hier kry jy rus vir jou siel op 'n Bo-Karoo plaas tussen êrens en nêrens, net so duskant die hemel. Die aardse, stylvolle dekor is prentjie mooi en die swembadjie met sy sonverhitte water was vreeslik lekker. Dankie vir jul gasvryheid en dat ons in jul stukkie hemel kon deel. Julle sal ons vir seker weer sien!

Hidden Karoo Cottage far exceeded my expectations! Here you find rest for your soul on a Bo-Karoo farm between somewhere and nowhere, just this side of heaven. The earthy, stylish decor is picture perfect and the swimming pool with its sun-heated water was very nice. Thank you for your hospitality and that we could share in your piece of heaven. You will see us again for sure!

Absoluut fantasties.

Ons het heerlik gebly. Die gasvrou was wonderlik en baie akkommoderend toe ons die datum verander het. Haar kommunikasie vooraf en tydens ons verblyf is wonderlik. Die huis is fantasties, ruim, skoon, modern met 2 groot stoepe om te kuier. Een met 'n ingeboude braai en klein swembadjie wat wonderlik is in die Karoo hitte. Die huis is baie privaat met 'n uitsig op 'n dam en mooie landskap. Ons was bederf met reën en 'n fantastiese sonsondergang. Baie veilig, kon met 'n oop kamerdeur na die stoep slaap.

Absolutely fantastic.

We had a wonderful stay. The hostess was wonderful and very accommodating when we changed the date. Her communication before and during our stay is great. The house is fantastic, spacious, clean, modern with 2 large verandas for hanging out. One with a built-in braai and small pool which is great in the Karoo heat. The house is very private with a view of a pond and beautiful landscape. We were treated to rain and a fantastic sunset. Very safe, could sleep with an open bedroom door to the porch.

Asemrowend mooi!

Pragtige eenheid in die weggesteekte Karoo. Asemrowende mooi uitsig rondom die eenheid. Alles lyk presies soos die fotos dit uitbeeld, binne en buite die huis. Jy moet 'n draai gaan maak, jy sal nie spyt wees nie. Ons gaan vir seker weer en sal dan langer as net een aand bly.

Gemaklike Karoo weelde.

'n Pragtige luukse rusplek omvou in die Karoo se ongereptheid. Die huis is ruim en uitstekend toegerus, en die dekor is keurig. 'n Mens weet sommer met die intrapslag hierdie is 'n heerlike bederf. Ons is hartlik ontvang en die gasvrou doen regtig moeite om te verseker dat haar gaste tuis voel. Sal beslis volgende keer langer vertoef.

Comfortable Karoo luxury.

A beautiful luxury resting place wrapped in the Karoo's unspoiled nature. The house is spacious and excellently equipped, and the decor is exquisite. One knows as soon as one steps in that this is a delicious treat. We were warmly received and the hostess really makes an effort to ensure that her guests feel at home. Will definitely stay longer next time.

Ongelooflik, sou graag langer wou bly, maar kom vir seker terug. Baie besonderse, stylvolle Karoo-ervaring.

Gasheer en gasvrou baie vriendelik en hulpvaardig. Ongeveer 47 km goeie grondpad, maar die rit is oor en oor die moeite werd. Baie veilige omgewing en mooi Karoo-landskap. Die eenheid is nuut, van uiters hoë standaard en getuig van goeie, stylvolle, duur smaak. Die kombuis is met die beste toegerus. Ek kan hierdie vir enige toeris aanbeveel. As jy wil ontspan sal ek ten minste 2 dae aanbeveel as jy op roete is.

Host and hostess very friendly and helpful. About 47 km of good dirt road, but the drive is worth it over and over again. Very safe environment and beautiful Karoo landscape. The unit is new, of an extremely high standard and shows good, stylish, expensive taste. The kitchen is equipped with the best. I can recommend this to any tourist. If you want to relax I would recommend at least 2 days if you are on trail.
