We stayed in unit 1 and 2 which offered great accommodation and comfortable living areas. Unfortunately we had to share the pool and braai area right in front of the bedrooms of Unit 2 with 16 other units!!!!! I did not see this on the description of the facilities

The Villas of the property are brand new and thus a beautiful and comfortable stay. However, we stayed in the cottage/wendy house which was a disaster. A disgrace compared to the villas. It was super hot, the shower did not work properly. The wendy house falls apart and

Dear Sir The old farm house and cottage has been there many years and are on the property next door. The rustic cottage that you have booked is our lowest rate for accommodation at Karoo Retreat and cost half of our latest new Luxury Villas. You could have booked a villa no one stopped you but you have booked the rustic cottage instead . Alot of guest loves the rustic romantic little cottage. We have a brand new aircon in the cottage and it works you could have put it on for the heat of the Karoo and infront of the cottage is the pool where you could have taken a dip to cool of. You are most welcome to book a villa next time. Kind Regards Este

We were a group of 5 adults planning a reunion for New Year so we booked a 4 bedroom villa on 1 July 2018 and paid the required 50% deposit to airbnb. In November we contacted the owner to enquire about adding 2 people to our booking - making a total of 7 adults, only to be told

Dear Neil Now for the hundreth of time. Long story short. There was a double booking which happens in our industry. I wanted to cancel many times and you have begged us to keep the booking. We have upgraded you without an extra charge from standard double rooms to 2 luxury selfcatering villas plus 2 rooms. You were fine with it. You booked for 5 people and told us you were now 7. Again we tried to accommodate you and tried to be polite. I still wanted to cancel because the place you have booked was taken and yes it is our fault completely. Because in this industry in 27 years I had my guesthouse it does happen some time. I bended backwards to accommodate you. You were happy with the rooms plus you ask for free breakfast as well. After you have slept and eaten you threaten us that you want everything for free otherwise you will post bad reviews if we dont do what you say, you sweared at us and use terrible language and told airbnb you want a refund after you have stayed and eaten for free. That my friend is low and cheap. So you got your refund and stayed for free and had breakfast for free and put bad reviews. You abuse the industry to get freebies. Poor other guesthouse owners that must sit up with you. Hope you got what you want and are happy my dear Neil with all your freebies!!!!

"Do Not Book Here"
"We stayed in Room 02 off the main dining area, but there are apartment style rooms as well that look great for families."
"Room number 3 is great, with a big queen bed and a patio overlooking the pool. The room was big and very spacious."
"Book the larger house as you only pay per person and if you love to cook the kitchen is lovely"
"Rooms in the main building are more spacious and have access to kitchen units. The separate unit does not."
