Fantastic.

I booked River View for the weekend to celebrate my birthday. My family and I really enjoyed our stay. The host is such a darling. I would love to go back for a longer stay.

Waarde vir geld, vriendelike gasheer, lieflike uitsig.

Ek en my vrou het 'n week daar spandeer en het die rustigheid, lekker kuierstoep, en gerieflike binnenshuise area baie geniet. Hein is 'n vriendelike gasheer wat uit sy pad gegaan het om ons tuis te laat voel. Die feit dat daar solarkrag en watervoorsiening is, maak dit baie gerieflik. Omheinde area met alarm het ons ook baie veilig laat voel. Die hele huis was presies soos op die foto's. Ons sal beslis weer soontoe gaan. Dit is reeds ons tweede besoek aan River View en ons was weereens beïndruk. Die beddens is heerlik gerieflik. Alles is blink en skoon. Ons sal definitief weer by River View kom kuier.

Value for money, friendly host, lovely view.

My wife and I spent a week there and really enjoyed the tranquility, nice patio, and comfortable indoor area. Hein is a friendly host who went out of his way to make us feel at home. The fact that there is solar power and water supply makes it very convenient. Fenced area with alarm also made us feel very safe. The whole house was exactly as in the pictures. We will definitely go there again. This is already our second visit to River View and we were once again impressed. The beds are wonderfully comfortable. Everything is shiny and clean. We will definitely visit River View again.

Die geriewe was alles netjie en gemaklik en veilig.

Hoewel dit vreeslik warm was was die huis heerlik koel, met teelvloere en lugversorging. Die plekkie was netjie en baie gerieflik. Of ons binne of buite gesit en kuier het, daar was genoegsame sitplek vir almal. Die rivier oorkant die pad het 'n heerlike atmosfeer geskep.

Baie rustige, ontspannende naweek gehad. Lekker plekkie om net vinnig uit die stad te kom en te vergeet van die gewoel.

Hein en Thelma was baie goeie gashere gewees wat ons dadelik laat tuis voel het. Alles is aan ons verduidelik, en genoem dat as ons enige iets nodig het kan ons hulle gerus laat weet. Daar sou moontlike loadshedding gewees het, en Thelma het vir ons liggies uitgesit vir indien nodig. Die sakkie braaihout was ook 'n verassing en het baie handig te pas gekom. Die 2 kamers het slaapplek vir 3 mense elk en was baie goed toegerus met baie netjiese beddegoed, skoon atmosfeer en lugreëling. Daar is ook 2 toesluitmotorhuise met elektriese motors waar jy jou voertuig kan stop, dit het baie handig te pas gekom omdat dit gereën het toe ons daar aangekom het Vrydag. Die saligheid om by die groot stoep tafel te sit en rustig oor die Vaalrivier uit te kyk is prysloos. Ons sal definitief weer daar oorbly as on Parys toe wil gaan.

Translate to English.

Had a very peaceful, relaxing weekend. Nice place to just get out of the city quickly and forget about the hustle and bustle.

Hein and Thelma were very good hosts who immediately made us feel at home. Everything was explained to us, and mentioned that if we needed anything we could let them know. There would have been possible loadshedding, and Thelma put us out lightly for if needed. The bag of braai wood was also a cremation and came in very handy. The 2 rooms have sleeping space for 3 people each and were very well equipped with very neat bedding, clean atmosphere and air conditioning. There are also 2 lock up garages with electric motors where you can park your vehicle, this came in very handy as it was raining when we got there on Friday. The bliss of sitting at the large stoep table and calmly looking out over the Vaal River is priceless. We will definitely stay there again if we want to go to Paris.

Pragtige huis met die beste uitsig.

Ons het elke oomblik van die kuiertjie by River View geniet. Die ruim huis en stoep met die perfekte uitsig het my hart gesteel. Ons kon heerlik saam met ons kinders ontspan en het die stap langs die rivier geniet. Die beddegoed was pragtig skoon en die huis baie netjies. Die puik en vriendelike diens van Hein en Thelma is meer as 10 sterre werd. Die beskuit, melk, ys, vuurmaak hout en water is 'n groot bederf. Ons kan River View beslis aanbeveel en sien uit na die volgende wegbreektydjie.

We enjoyed every moment of the visit at River View. The spacious house and porch with the perfect view stole my heart. We were able to relax wonderfully with our children and enjoyed the walk along the river. The bedding was beautifully clean and the house very tidy. The excellent and friendly service of Hein and Thelma is worth more than 10 stars. The rusks, milk, ice, fire wood and water are a great treat. We can definitely recommend River View and look forward to the next break away.

Skoon, gerieflik en vriendelike diens.

Hein het moeite gedoen om seker te maak die aircons word geïnstalleer voordat ons aangekom het. Die huis het alles in wat ons nodig gehad het. Selfs hout en blits vir die braaivleisvuur. Heerlike sagte beddegoed! Die huis het 'n mooi uitsig oor die rivier, en ons was bly dat die straat voor die huis nie so besig was soos party ander strate in die dorp met 'n rivieruitsig nie.
