Dit is 'n sentrale ligging om plekke in die omgewing te besoek en die uitsig is.

Die houthuis is baie koud en ons was daar op 'n koue tyd. Gelukkig is verwarmers en elektriese komberse verskaf. Dit is 'n sentrale ligging om plekke in die omgewing te besoek en die uitsig is asemrowend mooi. Chris en sy vrou is baie vriendelik en behulpsaam.

It is a central location to visit places in the area and the view is.

The log house is very cold and we were there at a cold time. Fortunately, heaters and electric blankets were provided. It is a central location for visiting places in the area and the view is breathtakingly beautiful. Chris and his wife are very friendly and helpful.

Great venue, amazing hosts and great views.

The hosts were so welcoming, we felt right at home. We took our 4-year-old with and he loved the venue, especially the dam and the deck overlooking the dam. It had everything we needed, honestly, there is nothing I can fault. It was a lovely 5-day stay and we will definitely be back.

Short stay with friends to relax and enjoy the scenery and wildlife.

This was a short stay with friends for 2 nights as part of a short stopover while on our way north from Durban. The host was very helpful, friendly and welcoming, showing us around the facilities and how to get the most out of our stay. Some very nice hikes and walks straight from the house, and other things to see were just a short car drive away. A tree house that has great character and spectacular views right on your balcony (or from your shower!).

Dit was ons tweede keer daar en sal definitief terugkom vir 'n derde keer. Sal dit baie graag volgende keer oor die winter wil ervaar. Dit is absoluut 'n rusplek. Die uitsig is beter as ander luukse 5-ster-lodges. Kan nie wag tot volgende keer.

Fabulous! Romantic hide-away with a stunning view!

Treks, Trips & Trails was die perfekte plek om ons vakansie van 26 dae, 2600 km en 9 verskillende verblyfopsies op 'n hoogtepunt af te sluit! Wat 'n fantastiese plek, hoog tussen die bome met 'n asemrowende uitsig oor die groen gras wat afrol tot in die dam. Ek kon nie genoeg kry van die verrassing wat om elke hoekie gewag het in die "boomhuis" nie. Die fynste detail van uitsigte is haarfyn beplan en gee aan die plek sy uniekheid. Daar skiet niks tekort in hierdie plekkie nie en die eienares het uit haar pad gegaan om ons welkom te laat voel. Daar was ekstras soos koffie, suiker, melk in die yskas en muskietspuitgoed beskikbaar wat jou tuis laat voel. Home away from home. Ons gaan verseker weer hier bly!

Die plek is 'n juweel.

Elke sent die moeite werd. Woorde kan nie beskryf hoe mooi dit daar is nie en die hele konsep van die boomhuis is amazing. Die hondjies is ook baie oulik en vriendelik. Mens kan ordentlik daar rus en recharge. Ons gaan definitief binnekort terug wees. Baie dankie.

Lekker ruim huis met pragtige uitsig, maar moet skoner gehou word!

Ons lekker gebly vir 6 dae, mens moet uitry vanaf die plaas om die berge te ervaar, soos stap roetes an besienswaardige plekke. Die Falkon Ridge is fantasties en moet definitief besoek word. Baie opvoedkundig gewees en 'n ware ervaring!

Nice spacious house with a beautiful view, but needs to be kept cleaner!

We had a nice stay for 6 days, you have to drive out from the farm to experience the mountains, such as hiking trails and places of interest. The Falkon Ridge is fantastic and must definitely be visited. Very educational and a real experience!

Pragtige houthuis met uitstekende geriewe en panorama uitsig op bergpieke.

Die unieke hout boomhuis is baie goed toegerus en gerieflik naby baie winkeltjies, eetplekke en toeriste aktiwiteite. Dis lastig met ongure weer, want die tweede slaap-area en badkamer is nie direk of onderdak bereikbaar vanaf hoofleefareas van die huis nie. Nie geskik vir gesinne met kinders onder 12 jaar nie. Pragtige bome reg rondom huis en sigbaar by elke venster. Eienaars baie behulpsaam en uitstekende kennis van omgewing. Houtdek met braai-area wat uitsig bied op lieflike vallei en bergpieke.

Beautiful wooden house with excellent facilities and panoramic view of mountain peaks.

The unique wooden treehouse is very well equipped and conveniently close to many shops, eateries and tourist activities. It's difficult in inclement weather, because the second sleeping area and bathroom are not directly or covered accessible from the main living areas of the house. Not suitable for families with children under 12 years. Beautiful trees all around the house and visible from every window. Owners very helpful and excellent knowledge of area. Wooden deck with braai area that offers views of the lovely valley and mountain peaks.

Baie lekker huis in baie lekker area met baie om te sien en te doen.

Die huis was baie lekker en goed toegerus. Die plaas is baie mooi en die uitsig oor die dam en berge pragtig! Dit was egter net reg langsaan die eienaar en ander gastehuise en dit was nie so geadverteer nie. Die eienaar het ook honde wat redelik lastig was wat ek nie aan gedink het aan die begin nie. Hul was die heeltyd in en uit die huis uit en het kos gebedel en wou nooit na hul eie huis gaan nie. Hulle het gate in die mat gekou in die leefkamer en oral in die huis rondbeweeg. Dit was ongelooflik lekker om elke dag 'n skoonmaker te hê wat mooi kon opwas en netjies maak. Sal 'n lig by die braai aangebring het as ek die eienaar was en dalk elke dag hout voorsien het, maar daar is nie regtig iets waaroor gekla kan word nie.

Very nice house in very nice area with lots to see and do.

The house was very nice and well equipped. The farm is very beautiful and the view over the dam and mountains beautiful! However, it was right next door to the owner and other guest houses and it was not as advertised. The owner also has dogs which were quite troublesome which I didn't think of at first. They were in and out of the house all the time begging for food and never wanted to go to their own house. They chewed holes in the carpet in the living room and moved around the house. It was incredibly nice to have a cleaner every day who could wash up and tidy up nicely. Would have fitted a light to the braai if I was the owner and maybe provided wood every day but not really anything to complain about.

Treks, Trips & Trails 's response

Dankie Lizelle dat jy die tyd geneem het om 'n resensie te skryf. Dit help altyd baie om relevante advies van gaste te kry. Ons sal defnitief 'n lig by die braaiplek laat insit.

Jammer dat die honde gepla het maar ons is net jammer dat dit nie onder ons aandag gebring is sodat ons daarvan bewus was terwyl julle hier was nie. Gewoonweg word die honde nie in die kothuis toegelaat nie.

'n Bietjie verbaas dat julle nie bewus was van die feit dat die huis naby aan die hoofwoning is nie aangesien die beskrywing wel aandui dat Bergvlei 'n tuin kothuis binne bereik van die hoofwoning is.

Groete

A great welcome, and the tree house was absolutely lovely

A great welcome! The tree house was absolutely lovely, well equipped, and sported breathtaking views! A great place for those seeking a romantic getaway, or much needed piece and quiet, although neighbours had small barking dogs running rampant which disrupted the silence severely on the last day, and chased away any wildlife or bird attempting to come close, which was unfortunate. It should perhaps be considered that they disallow pets. The fireplace really warmed up the chilly nights. Some upgrades are however needed, regarding the comfort of the bed and seating in the lounge area.

Hemos disfrutado el alojamiento. Bonito paisaje, casa con personalidad, y amabilidad de Chris.

Es una casa con personalidad, donde sobresale el paisaje y la tranquilidad, al estar un poco alejado de la carretera principal R600. Ideal para convivir familias, y con varios niños que puedan interactuar entre ellos. Al llegar, Chris nos ayudó con posibles visitas, horarios, y recomendaciones, y fue un exito. Desayunar en la terraza fue ideal para empezar bien los días. Todas las instalaciones funcionaban con normalidad. La cocina completa para organizar cenas. La casa limpia y divertida para niños en la parte de arriba. Recomendable!

Lovely accommodation at an affordable price! What a view!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bergview Cottage. Everything was clean and neat and the cottage adequately equipped. Chris and Magda went out of their way to accommodate us, including putting an extra bed upstairs! The farm is a little off the beaten track, but close enough to activities offered in the area. We had a lovely, relaxing stay and we hope to be able to return.
