A wonderfully unique stay.

Probably the most relaxing stay I have had in a long time. We enjoyed the amazing garden, pool, and hot tub. The host was a super host; she made us feel so welcome in her slice of paradise. The house is beautiful with lots of charm, set in the most amazing garden. It's the perfect place to get away from it all.

Wonderlike rustige atmosfeer waar ons kon ontspan en nader aan die natuur en aan mekaar kom.

Kapteinskloof gastehuis het 'n groot privaat tuin met 'n ryk voellewe en ek sal beslis 'n verkyker en voëlgids saamneem volgende keer. Die 'wood fired hot tub' is 'n moet! Die gastehuis het alles in wat 'n mens nodig het en Melanie is 'n baie vriendelike en hulpvaardige gasvrou. Sal vir seker weer die vrede en rustigheid daar wil gaan ervaar.

Wonderful peaceful atmosphere where we could relax and get closer to nature and to each other.

Kapteinskloof guest house has a large private garden with a rich sensory life and I will definitely take binoculars and a bird guide with me next time. The wood fired hot tub is a must! The guest house has everything one needs and Melanie is a very friendly and helpful hostess. Will definitely want to experience the peace and tranquility there again.

Baie aangename verblyf in 'n wonderlik gerestoureerde huis.

Baie aangename verblyf in 'n wonderlik gerestoureerde huis. Al is die verblyf naby die einaars se huis, is dit baie privaat. Mooi groen tuin en 'n heerlike klein swembad.

Very pleasant stay in a wonderfully restored house.

Very pleasant stay in a wonderfully restored house. Even though the accommodation is close to the owners' house, it is very private. Nice green garden and a lovely little swimming pool.

An absolute gem.

The cottage is a beautifully restored cottage of significant heritage value. Decor and furniture are simple and humble yet appropriately chosen and with good taste. Our host Melanie was wonderful, she went the extra mile to make our stay absolutely lovely in all regards. The hot tub was incredible, the stars and the setting beautiful and rural. The cottage was warm and inviting, and the children loved playing in the garden and on the surrounding farm. A must for a short break away!

Awesome place to get away for some time-out.

Thanks, this place is great if you just need to switch off. The hot tub under the stars is super special and the host makes sure you are completely private and exclusive. Great experience if you just need a few days out of the rat race!

'n Wonderlike wegbreek na die platteland van Italië.

Naby aan stad en ander Boland streke, maar vêr genoeg, so uitstekend vir 'n naweek wegbreek. As jy moeg gewerk is dan is dit 'n heerlike plek om op te van met slaap, swem, lees, kosmaak ens. Heerlike geswem en die hot tub geniet. Nuwe disse uitprobeer. Baie gestap en die tieners het gaan perdry.

A wonderful getaway to the countryside of Italy.

Close to city and other Boland regions, but far enough, so excellent for a weekend getaway. If you are tired from work then this is a wonderful place to catch up with sleeping, swimming, reading, cooking etc. Had a great swim and enjoyed the hot tub. Trying out new dishes. Lots of walking and the teenagers went horse riding.

Pragtig, histories en rustig.

Pragtige historiese plaashuisie. Dit was 'n voorreg om in 'n stukkie van ons Afrikaanse erfenis te bly vir 'n paar nagte. Kliëntediens was baie goed en almal was baie vriendelik en behulpsaam. Ons was baie beïndruk met die plekkie en sal definitief weer daar gaan bly.

Beautiful historic farmhouse. It was a privilege to stay in a piece of our African heritage for a few nights. Customer service was very good and everyone was very friendly and helpful. We were very impressed with the place and will definitely stay there again.

Heerlik rustig, pragtige omgewing, vriendelik, tegemoetkomende gasheer en vrou, was baie spesiaal.

Sal dit sterk aanbeveel vir stilte, voëlkyk, natuur geniet, stap- en fietsry-entoesiaste. Baie goeie waarde vir geld, baie gawe gasheer en -vrou!

'n Voorreg om in so 'n mooi, gerestoureerde huisie iets van vervloë dae te ervaar, en dit in so 'n pragtige omgewing.

Kapteinskloof Guesthouse is geleë in 'n pragtige en waterryke kloof naby Piketberg. Dit was 'n voorreg om in die pragtig gerestoureerde kothuis te kon tuisgaan en ons sal graag weer wil gaan. Jare gelede het ek 'n artikel oor Kapteinskloof en sy vorige eienaars, die Fouries, gelees en was my verrassing groot toe ek plek bespreek en agterkom dat die kothuis waarin ons akkommodasie gekry het, 'n restourasieprojek van die Fouries was. Kapteinskloof is 'n gemaklike afstand vanaf Kaapstad en Melanie en haar span het ons hartlik verwelkom. Die plasie is omring deur bloubessie- en sitrusboorde en ons was diep onder die indruk van die rustige en mooi natuurskoon. Ons ken nie die area nie, en dit was heerlik om van die geheime van die Sandveld te ontdek. Vroegoggend het ons eers gaan kyk hoe Piketberg lyk en ek het selfs 'n paar "gum boots" daar gekoop vir my eie tuinwerke. Daarna het ons tot in Velddrif gery vir 'n heerlike middagete op die "lagune", en met 'n draai deur Laaiplek is ons terug Kapteinskloof toe vir ons eie braaitjie vroegaand. Alhoewel die swembad in die boord, met vars fonteinwater, uiters aanloklik gelyk het, het ons dit laat oorstaan vir 'n volgende keer. Daar is ook 'n "hot tub' vir gaste wat belangstel. Hopelik kan ons 'n volgende keer van die sendingstasies soos Morawië, Wittewater en Goedverwacht besoek. Dit is goed en mooi dat sulke huisies wat voorbeelde is van ons Volksboukuns, bewaar en onderhou word.

A privilege to experience something of bygone days in such a beautiful, restored cottage, with such a beautiful setting.

Kapteinskloof Guesthouse is situated in a beautiful and watery gorge near Piketberg. It was a privilege to be able to stay in the beautifully restored cottage and we would love to go again. Years ago, I read an article about Kapteinskloof and its previous owners, the Fouries, and was my surprise great when I booked here and realised that the cottage in which we were accommodated was a restoration project of the Fouries. Kapteinskloof is a comfortable distance from Cape Town and Melanie and her team warmly welcomed us. Surrounded by blueberry and citrus orchards, we were deeply impressed by the peaceful and beautiful scenery. We didn't know the area, and it was great to discover the secrets of the Sandveld. Early in the morning we had a look at Piketberg and I even bought some gum boots for my own gardening. Then we drove to Velddrif for a delicious lunch on the lagoon, and for a walk through Laaiplek. We went back to Kapteinskloof for our own braai early that evening. Although the pool in the orchard, with fresh fountain water, looked extremely tempting, we left it for another time. There is also a hot tub for guests interested in such. Hopefully we will be able to visit the mission stations such as Moravia, Wittewater and Goedverwacht next time. It is good that cottages like these that are examples of our folk art are preserved and maintained.

Little gem!

Really amazing place to stay. The cottage was perfect for us as a family of four. Everything one needs is available. The pool was our highlight during this hot season and the kids had a superb time! Beautiful gardens, surroundings and the owners were so friendly and helpful. Well done!
