Although I did my homework and knew what the placed looked like from photos I saw on the internet, nothing prepared me for just how amazing this house was!! I loved the personalised note (and plenty of firewood) welcoming us. The main house had two en suite bedrooms and a third bedroom with a separate bathroom. The cottage had another two en suite bathrooms with a small kitchen. The living area was huge with a 10 seater table and a wonderful kitchen with all the possible equipment you might need.
The house is situated in the foothills of the mountain, which gives it views in both directions - either from the patio down the valley over the fruit orchards or from the swimming pool area up to the Langeberg Mountains. With no cell phone coverage, no man-made noise except for a bit of farming activity during the day, the isolation was splendid. We spend time in front of the fireplace or in front of the inside braai at evening, all reading quietly or chatting noisily. We had lunch at the outside braai and on another occasion carried the table right to the edge of the lawn, for a lunch with an amazing view. Deciding where to drink our morning coffee was the hardest decision of the day.
