    Arnaud Joseph2019-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying here. It was a beautiful flat that made us feel very at home. Easy to drive to amazing hikes nearby. We would definitely stay here again.

  • Carron’s is about a 30 min drive west of Winterton, and the drive in itself is an adventure! We highly recommend stopping off for coffee and cake at Valley Bakery, and for craft beer at Berg Air. Calling in at the tourism center would also be useful Annasrus cottage itself is small and basic, but has all amenities and equipment that you would need for a country weekend. If you go in winter, take warm clothing and your favorite “snuggle” blanket. The absolute tranquility of the evenings virtually guarantees a brilliant night’s sleep.

  • We had 2 wonderful days at Barbara and Eric’s place. We planned just one night but when we got here we immediately extended for one more. Even that time was not enough! House located in beautiful neighborhood surrounded by green hills which you can see from your own bed! View from the yard is perfect. Pure nature is around. Apartment is very fresh and has everything you need starting from kitchen stuff to the chocolate on our bed! Actually it looks much better than on the pictures! Barbara and Eric is super friendly and hospitable couple. We spend all evenings with them over delicious dinner Barbara made. They helped us a lot with planning our time on Drakensberg. They are very local and know best safe routes for hiking to get magnificent view without being exhausted (not one guidebook write about it) and can recommend other activities in this area. So plan at least 2 days to stay at this place! Also the price is very reasonable especially if compare with other accommodations around. So far it was one of the best Airbnb experiences for us! And we hope to be back one day. Highly recommend for everyone who planned to go to Drakensberg. You will not find better place.

  • Amazing place to stay if one is planning to hike in the Drakensburg mountains. We started out as a group of 6, and ended up booking for 13 people. Updating this was no hassle at all. Colleen was very informative with directions and accommodated a late checkin as we travels from JHB. Peter was very kind to have started the fire before we arrived, this was most appreciated on a cold night! Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay, beds were very comfortable (Very decent mattresses even on the bunker beds). Blankets kept us very warm at night and we made good use of the fireplace. Good internet connection was available throughout our stay, amazing view of the berg in the mornings. Comfortable drive to Monks Cowl. We’ll definitely consider coming back whenever we get a chance. Thank you for having us!

    Ken2019-06-16T00:00:00Z

    Sans Souci is a family home with many furry friends including free range chickens who supply lovely organic eggs. Our pets are very much part of the family therefor we suggest only animal lovers stay with us. Our home faces the Drakensberg mountains on one side and a lovely dam on the other. Sunrises over the dam, mountain view sunsets. We are relaxed and enjoy the great outdoors.
    We are the only family home AirBnB in the area.
    We are 10km outside the nearest small town and are considered a rural area.
  • Terry and Roy are the most friendly people we have been met! Great hospitality, good food. They are very friendly for everybody in their community. I hope a lot of people are so carring as they do!

Roy is a fantastic cook, we had the opportunity to participate in the evening meal and we certainly did not regret it! What a fantastic lasagna! Terry & Roy are very hospitable and know everything about the area! When you visit the Drakensberg, this is definitely recommended!

    Jonas2019-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • If you're just looking for a nice place to crash in SA, this is not the place for you. This is where you go to feel like you've been adopted by the a family that is warmer than sitcom families. Have a meal or two together, sit by the fire and chat, and get to know someone outside of your immediate travel crew in the heart of the beautiful country of South Africa.

    Ryan2019-06-13T00:00:00Z
  • Terry and Roy are 2 exceptional people who live according to their own philosophy and relationship to nature. We really appreciated our exchanges with them and their daughter. It was a pleasure to share their house for one night.

  • This place is truly one of a kind. Amazing little retreat in Drakensburg, very close to Monks Cowl- a place not to be missed. First things first- his dogs are the sweetest, we'd go back just to see them again. But also, the place is very nice, great outdoor space with grill, amazing views of the mountains. Nice that he provided dishes, cooktop, movies on the tv. Would definitely recommend.

  • If you need a little bit of serenity come and visit Shirley's lovely cabin close to the Central Drakensberg! It was our first visit to the Drakensberg, a stop on our way to the south coast, and it was oh so relaxing. A beautiful view out on the dam with its weaver-filled tree, Egyptian geese and ducklings, and multiple other water birds, a private rock pool (out stay was to short to make use of it but it was so inviting!), and quaint two story cabin with a vintage inspired rustic but elegant feel. Great tips about the local area (Valley Bakery is amazing). And of course the Drakensberg itself is indescribable, we walked the Sterkfontein Falls and Gorge/Nandi Falls hikes at Monk's Cowl, and what can I say except wow! Just remember to pack for the sudden cloudbursts :P

    Elizabeth2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • The place is calm and idyllic, ideal for resting and disconnecting. The small pool is very original, we particularly liked the room under the roof ... beautiful! Shirley is considerate and attentive, her accommodation perfect for a couple.

    Kévin2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely spot to get away. The thatched cottage has a peaceful quirky feel. We spent hours sitting on the lake 'pier' with a glass of wine just watching the weaver birds on the island. Shirley is a lovely host, helpful and happy to share her WiFi on the stoop of her cottage and asking us what we thought of potential changes for the future.

    Andy2020-02-16T00:00:00Z

    Alexandre2017-04-28T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed 1 night and it was amazing after a very long drive. Arrived late but was able to text Joss from a nearby town and he was kind enough to have the pizza oven still hot so we could still have a meal! Kids loved the "round" house, and the loft beds. Only issue we had was that the playground is a little scary with young kids....and the trampoline is open at the corners allowing little ones to fall into the pit below. Definitely recommend having parental supervision when playing. Otherwise it was an amazing place to stay, with wonderful people, and service, and we wish we could have stayed longer.

    Christopher2017-03-30T00:00:00Z
  • This was a great find. If you're visiting the Drakensberg, it's a bit outside the mountains and the town of Bergville. It's a compound with several freestanding chalets. The restaurant is quite good. It was too chilly to use the pool. It's like camping in perfect comfort

    Alan2016-11-27T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great place to stop at on your way. The location is tranquil and relaxing. The units are quirky and have all that you need and the bed very comfortable. If you have a problem with stairs check. We enjoyed the company of the dogs that joined us for a walk. The bar and restaurant serves good honest food and is worth a stop even if you are not staying.

    Pilot’s Cabin are two comfortable log cabins next to the old El Mirador airstrip, which is now known as the Berg Air airstrip, in the Cathkin Valley, Central Drakensberg. The Berg Air airstrip has a lifestyle centre which includes a restaurant, brewery, craft store and more to come… It is a fun experience for the family. It has beautiful views from a wooden deck onto a game farm teeming with Eland, Springbok and a range of other wildlife, with spectacular views of the Drakensberg.
    Please note that Pilot's Cabin has outside showers. However, they are private and have hot water. The kitchen and toilets are also a short walking distance from the cabin.

Come with time to relax and enjoy the wildlife (bring binoculars), and simple living. Lots of local hikes and things to see/eat/drink in the vicinity!

    Owen2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed two nights at the cabin, a lovely place in the middle of nature and mountains! The accommodation is very well equipped and there are a lot of activities to do around. In addition, the cabin is on the ground of an aerodrome where you will find a local brewery, a small restaurant serving delicious breakfasts and a chocolatier! We had a good time at the cabin. Note however, you must love nature and not be disturbed by the noise because the frogs are singing all night!

    Sebastien2019-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay here and even extended it. The cabin is basic but cozy and has a fire stove inside. We loved sitting outside on the deck around a fire basket watching the animals from the nearby nature park. James is charming, was very helpful and provided us with some useful tips.

  • This is an incredible spot. The most wonderful view and a kind family in the rest of the home. It’s a relaxed, family friendly environment with kids, chickens and zebras roaming around. We had an absolutely gorgeous gin picnic between the zebras.

  • Cuite little rondawel (round hut) with basic self cooking facilities and private bathroom. Location is awesome, right in the middle of Champagne Valley, near loads of attractions and Monks Cowl nature reserve. Although pricey for what you get, these rondawels are the best priced accommodation you will find in the Champagne Valley. Thanks James, you were a kind host!

    Reinhardt2019-12-13T00:00:00Z
  • James was a very nice host and quickly responded to our (late) query. The huge cottage was in an excellent condition and includes a huge garden with an amazing view and enough space for great braai evenings.

    Tobias2019-11-06T00:00:00Z
  • A rustic stay against a beautiful backdrop of the Drakensberg mountains. Scenic serenity.

    Pia2019-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • This was a lovely little spot with the most gorgeous views of the mountain. Awaken to monkeys just outside your door nibbling away at fruits on the trees. Convenient location, cozy with heater and heated blanket for cold winter nights, quick communications, we even booked a second night as soon as we arrived. Highly recommend!
