What people are saying

Unbelievable comfort and super affordable

The cottage was impeccably decorated and super comfortable. Cooking in the kitchen, dining at the large dining table and sipping on wine in the upstairs space with a beautiful view of the dam perfected our days Farouk manages the property well and is knowledgeable about the area and suggested many hiking trails. We enjoyed the space so much and did not want to leave – this is definitely a home away from home and the perfect space to recharge.

Warm & Stylish Lakeside Lodge

Warm and stylish. We had a a great stay. Beautiful mountain views from the rooms as well as amazing perspectives of the lake from the upstairs patio. A real recharge in the scents and sounds of nature. We will most definitely be back.

Karen – SA


Wow this is cool but warm. Snug with good light, modern with an alpine feel about it. Great service, and everything we needed including wide views of lake and mountain.

Worth It

The host was friendly, pleasant, polite Farouk. Loved the location close to the river,dam and mountains very peaceful, the views are beautiful from all directions of the house whether you in the bathroom, bedroom or kitchen. My boys had alot of FUN exploring the place, canoeing was our highlight. We loved everything about the house decor upstairs and downstairs, beds were comfortable and clean linen, soft throws and towels and safe environment you can sleep with the doors open. Will definitely come back.
