Ongelooflik mooi, rustig, mooiste natuurskoon.

Ons kan hierdie plekkie met groot vrymoedigheid aanbeveel. Wat 'n pragtige plek in die Karoo. So mooi en ruim. Ons gaan beslis volgende keer nie net oorslaap nie maar sommer 'n paar dae bly. Als is skoon die uitsig is pragtig en die sterre in die nag is net onbeskryflik mooi. Die swembad was 'n lafenis en helderskoon. Ons het heerlik gekuier en gaan beslis weer kom!

Incredibly beautiful, peaceful, most beautiful scenery.

We can recommend this place with great confidence. What a beautiful place in the Karoo. So beautiful and spacious. Next time we will definitely not just sleep over but simply stay for a few days. If it is clean the view is beautiful and the stars at night are just indescribably beautiful. The pool was a breeze and sparkling clean. We had a great time and will definitely come again!

Lovely, isolated, basic and very quiet spot, which is what we wanted. We took our own wood, although a single pack of wood should have been included.

The rubbish bin had not been emptied. Too many fences stopping the natural movement of wildlife. No mention was made about how low the doors are at about 5 feet!

Met aankoms baie vriendelik ontvang en sommer dadelik tuis gevoel.

Rooiheuwel is baie goed geleë as jy die Karoo wil verken. As motorfietsryer beveel ek Rooiheuwel aan. Paaie is in 'n uitstekende toestand.

As jou idee is om regtig net te wees in isolasie, dan is die afgeleë plek ideaal vir jou.

'n Wegbreek 1000. Regtig weg van alles.

Die Kliphuisie is waar die skaapwagter gebly het. So heel iets anders vir die buitemens. Alles wat gedoen kan word by so klein huisie is gedoen met moeite. Swemdam te lekker en die warmwaterstort in die blote hemel was 'n treffer. Well done!

A getaway 1000. Really away from it all.

The Stone House is where the shepherd stayed. So something completely different for the outsider. Everything that can be done in such a small house is done with effort. Swimming pool too nice and the hot shower in the sky was a hit. Well done!

Lieflike tyd in die Karoo.

Die huisie is in die middel van nêrens geleë: dit maak vir stilte en goeie sterrekyk geleenthede. Die eenvoud is definitief die regte medisyne vir 'n "recharge".

So na aan die natuur as wat kan kom.

Grootdroom op Rooiheuwel-plaas is ideaal vir families of ’n groep vriende. Die groot binnebraai en plonspoel buite maak dit ewe geskik vir ’n winter- of somerwegbreek. Daar is ook ’n gesellige buitebraai, ’n stoep waarop jy die sonsopkoms kan sit en waardeer, en talle kort en langer staproetes net ’n klipgooi van die huisie af. Sonkrag en geen selfoonopvangs maak dat jy behoorlik kan afskakel en na aan die natuur voel. Die huis is ook rolstoelvriendelik. Een nag was beslis te kort. Ons kom sommer gou weer, en vir veel langer!

As close to nature as can be.

Big dream on Rooiheuwel farm is ideal for families or a group of friends. The large indoor braai and outdoor plunge pool make it equally suitable for a winter or summer break. There is also a cozy outdoor barbecue, a veranda on which you can sit and appreciate the sunrise, and numerous short and longer walking routes just a stone's throw from the cottage. Solar power and no cell phone reception means you can switch off properly and feel close to nature. The house is also wheelchair friendly. One night was definitely too short. We'll be back soon, and for much longer!

Ongelooflik!! Mooiste plek, waarde vir geld, puik diens, heerlike verblyf.

Grootdroom is inderdaad 'n droom! Marge en haar span is uitstekend, so gasvry en die diens was van begin tot einde baie baie goed. Ons het 'n langnaweek in Grootdroom-woonstel deurgebring (5 volwassenes), en het die heerlikste, onvergeetlikste tyd gehad! Die huis is heerlik ingerig, netjies, toeganklik en in die mooiste omgewing geleë met uitsig op Tafelkop. Grootdroom sal ons beslis weer sien! Perfek vir 'n lekker wegbreek na die mooie Karoo en natuurskoon.

Unbelievable!! Most beautiful place, value for money, great service, lovely stay.

Big dream is indeed a dream! Marge and her team are excellent, so hospitable and the service from start to finish was very very good. We spent a long weekend in Grootdroom apartment (5 adults), and had the most wonderful, unforgettable time! The house is beautifully furnished, tidy, accessible and located in the most beautiful surroundings with a view of Tafelkop. Grootdrom will definitely see us again! Perfect for a nice break to the beautiful Karoo and natural beauty.

Dit is so stil daar, geen stres of spanning. Mal oor die eienaar laat mens so welkom voel.

Ons was by Boplaas, die eienares en haar seun het kom inloer en is so vriendelik en bedagsaam. Nice mense ons sal verseker weer draai maak. Dit is net baie warm daar en vreeslik stil. Beveel regtig Rooiheuwel aan vir mense wat hulle of haarself weer wil vind en rus! Baie dankie vir die mense van Rooiheuwel!

We were at Boplaas, the owner and her son came to visit and are so friendly and considerate. Nice people, we will definitely visit again. It's just very hot there and awfully quiet. Really recommend Rooiheuwel for people who want to find themselves again and rest! Many thanks to the people of Rooiheuwel!
