A wonderful and unique experience!

Thank you for the excellent stay in this incredible place! We loved the isolation, history, nature, and unique experience. Your homemade treats, heritage roses, and fresh herbs were a delight! We will be back and will definitely recommend Stuurmansfontein Corbelled House!

Pragtig. Geskiedenis ingebou in blyplek. Uniek.

Is hartlik ontvang. Veilig. Harde omgewing. Mense wat daar gebly het is bewonderingswaardig. Stil, rustig, sterre pragtig.

Die mooiste plek waar jou siel kan rus!

Stuurmansfontein is 'n plekkie wat onder jou vel inkruip! Die vrede en rustigheid wat jy ervaar, met die mooiste sterre in die aande is onvervangbaar. Piet en Charmaine doen soveel moeite om jou tuis te laat voel! Ons is bederf elke dag met 'n varsgebakte suurdeegbroodjie! Dis so lekker om ook die geskiedenis te ervaar van die Korbeelhuisies, dis vir enige een 'n moet om dit te gaan beleef!

The most beautiful place where your soul can rest!

Stuurmansfontein is a place that crawls under your skin! The peace and tranquility you experience with the most beautiful stars in the evenings is irreplaceable. Piet and Charmaine make so much effort to make you feel at home! We are spoiled every day with a freshly baked sourdough bun! It's so nice to also experience the history of the Korbeelhuisies, it's a must for anyone to experience it!

Perfect getaway.

Really enjoying staying in an off-grid, quiet and historic building. The place was clean and serviced and the home baked bread was a welcome surprise. The farm is beautiful and perfect for walks and for kids to explore. I'll be back.

Wat 'n unieke belewenis en 'n moet vir almal wat in geskiedenis belangstel.

Die ervaring wat moontlik gemaak word deur Charmaine is 'n eenmaal-in-'n-lewe ervaring. Die detail van die meubels en bybehore asook alles om die verblyf so gerieflik moontlik te maak is uitsonders. Die stilte is iets wat ek baie lanklaas beleef het. Na so 'n besoek raak 'n mens nederig dankbaar vir die gemak van ons eie huise.

What a unique experience and a must for anyone interested in history.

The experience made possible by Charmaine is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The detail of the furniture and accessories as well as everything to make the stay as comfortable as possible is exceptional. The silence is something I haven't experienced in a very long time. After such a visit, one becomes humbly grateful for the comfort of our own homes.

A Spectacular House in the Karoo.

What a special building in the beautiful Karoo. The house has been decorated with such style and care with fresh flowers and bunches of herbs. No cell signal or electricity meant we could fully switch off and relax. Thank you Charmaine for making our stay magical!

An experience!

Incredible getaway in a breathtaking and magnificent tranquil setting in the heart of the Karoo! The Corbelled house has an authentic historical feel, excellently laid out and equipped with all the creature comforts. The hosts were friendly, considerate and thoughtful in making your stay with them memorable! The Stuurmansfontein Corbelled house has something for everyone to do and enjoy whether you are busy bodies like us or just want to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere on the private property to see and enjoy! There are many walking, mtb, and driving routes. The property has a lovely braai area outside enclosed by a "muisbos kraal" with plenty of seating and shelter for both winter and summer with seating where guests can enjoy their morning coffee, sandwiches or evening sundowners from around the fire. In the evening you are mesmerized by the milky way and sounds from the animal's settling down for the night. We will definitely recommend Stuurmansfontein Corbelled house as a must visit for anyone who loves history, the outdoors or who wants to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Can't wait to visit again very soon! Thank you Charmaine for your incredible hospitality and for making our stay magical!

Magic! In die pragtige Karoo.

Wat 'n belewenis om in die Korbeelhuis te kon bly: van aankoms (en selfs onderweg) tot vertrek was alles perfek - die 24 + 5 km vanaf die grootpad tot Stuurmansfontein was opwinded pragtig, die ontvangs en verwelkoming hartlik, en die Karoo-donderstorm en reën dramaties. Die huis (nasionale monument) is pragtig bewaar en skoon, smaakvol en goed ingerig, en alles wat nodig is om gerieflik, maar outentiek te leef is daar. Genoeg vars fonteinwater, droë vuurmaakhout, kerse en vuurhoutjies en selfs 2 groot herlaaibare lanterns om saans beter te kan sien maak die lewe maklik; daar was ys in die vrieskas vir 'n moeë weermag. Die sterrehemel, veldgeluide saans en sonsopkoms is soos 'n 4D fliek. My verblyf weg van 'n gewoel was onwerklik lekker: kon ontspan en leef in die oomblik terwyl ek oor groot sake kon dink. 5 sterre!

Magic! In the beautiful Karoo.

What an experience to be able to stay in the Korbeelhuis: from arrival (and even en route) to departure, everything was perfect - the 24 + 5 km from the main road to Stuurmansfontein was exhilaratingly beautiful, the reception and welcome warm, and the Karoo thunderstorm and raining dramatically. The house (national monument) is beautifully preserved and clean, tastefully and well furnished, and everything needed to live comfortably but authentically is there. Enough fresh spring water, dry firewood, candles and matches and even 2 large rechargeable lanterns to see better at night make life easy; there was ice in the freezer for a tired army. The starry sky, field sounds at night and sunrise are like a 4D movie. My stay away from the hustle and bustle was really nice: being able to relax and live in the moment while thinking about big things. 5 stars!

Los jou moderne lewe agter en kom skakel af.

Geen elektrisiteit of selfoonopvangs nie, presies wat ons gesoek het. Omring deur die pragtige Karoo met skape wat kom water drink en die rustigheid wat jy geensins in die stad gaan kry nie. Jy kan jouself hoor dink en die sonsondergang en opkoms is onbeskryflik hier. Die sterre was ontelbaar baie en dit was 'n ongelooflike ondervinding. So as jy bietjie wil wegbreek van die stad se gejaag en 'n slag net wil afskakel en rus is hierdie die plek vir jou. Charmaine het oral roosmaryn opgehang wat die hele plek gevul het met die heerlikste reuk en die huisie is baie smaaklik gedoen met alles wat jy kan nodig hê. Die buitestort was 'n belewenis en ons gaan verseker weer hier kom rus.

Leave your modern life behind and come switch off.

No electricity or cell phone reception, exactly what we were looking for. Surrounded by the beautiful Karoo with sheep that come to drink water and the tranquility that you will never find in the city. You can hear yourself thinking and the sunset and sunrise are indescribable here. The stars were countless and it was an incredible experience. So if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and just switch off and rest, this is the place for you. Charmaine hung rosemary everywhere which filled the whole place with the most delicious smell and the cottage is very tastefully done with everything you could need. The outdoor shower was an experience and we will definitely come here again to rest.

Onvergeetlik.

Het twee jaar gelede by Stuurmansfontein gebly en dit was 'n baie besondere ervaring, want met geen elektrisiteit (net gas, kerse en lampe), en geen selfoonopvangs en WiFi, en die afgesonderdheid met eindelose Karoo-uitsigte is dit 'n plek van stilte, vrede, sterre en veiligheid sonder gelyke. Die huisie is smaakvol gerestoureer met al die geriewe wat 'n mens verlang, veral die braaiplek. Toe die geleentheid weer opduik om hier oor te bly, was die huisie gelukkig beskikbaar. Die kontras tussen die bruin drooggeteisterde Karoo van twee jaar gelede, wat nou so groen is na die fantastiese reën wat die afgelope tyd daar geval het, kon nie meer dramaties gewees het nie. Charmaine is 'n wonderlike gasvrou en die mandjie vol Karoo-skaaptjops, wors, slaai, broodjie en koeksisters was iets besonders. Stuurmansfontein kan sonder enige voorbehoud aanbeveel word vir 'n ervaring sonder gelyke.

Unforgettable.

Stayed at Stuurmansfontein two years ago and it was a very special experience because with no electricity (just gas, candles and lamps), and no cell phone reception and WiFi, and the seclusion with endless Karoo views it is a place of silence , peace, stars and safety without equal. The cottage has been tastefully restored with all the amenities one could wish for, especially the braai area. When the opportunity arose again to stay here, the cottage was fortunately available. The contrast between the brown drought-stricken Karoo of two years ago, which is now so green after the fantastic rain that has fallen there recently, could not have been more dramatic. Charmaine is a wonderful hostess and the basket full of Karoo lamb chops, sausage, salad, bread and biscuits was something special. Stuurmansfontein can be recommended without reservation for an experience without equal.
