One of the best stays during our 3-week trip to South Africa! Why? The couple is so very warm-hearted and welcoming you just have to feel good. Besides the farm is in the outskirts, so the silence there is perfect if you like to run from the hurry in your "normal" life. As a Hotelmanager in Germany, lets say I...

We stayed in Mary and Dicks guesthouse for one night which was way to short. The house has a lot of room for couples or small groups. The terrace has a great view and the hosts are amazing. We had dinner and breakfast with together and we are so glad that they took so much time to talk with us....

Just when I thought our trip to South Africa couldn't get any better, we arrive at Mountain Zebra. The scenery is breathtaking, animals abound and the chalet accommodation is beautiful. Lovely swimming pool.

This was the 4th time we visited Dick and Mary and Rolbaken. And as usual it was just as good as the first, second and third visit. The scenery is beautiful, it's so still and quiet (with noisy chickens in the background but that adds to the atmosphere. Dick and Mary cooked for us two nights and I really love...

One can also self cater with a well appointed kitchen. The guesthouse is spacious and comfortable with a huge stoep for relaxing with stunning views. There are also many walks...

Ever wanted to stay in your very own farmhouse - perched on top of a hill Rolbaken Guest house exceeded all our expectations. A home away from home, excellent farm cooked meals, knowledgeable and informative hosts, and space ... lots of it. A large portion of the farm has been converted into a Nature Reserve allowing you the opportunity to...

My family and I had a wonderful stay on Dick and Mary's farm. We felt welcome and at home from the moment we drove down the drive. The cottage was spacious, comfortable, and with some stunning views from the veranda. Dick made our children feel very much at home, letting them watch and help him tend to his chickens, as...

Thank you Dick and Mary for farmfresh milk, eggs and figs. Not to mention the delicious muffins! We had a wonderful stay and could not wish for better views, a cleaner guesthouse or a more welcoming and homely setting. The Twines.

The cottage was warm despite it being one of the coldest weeks in winter. There were vases with fresh flowers, milk in fridge, cereals for the next morning, heaters, hot water bottles and what I appreciated was that it was scrupulously clean. While you might get all of the above in similar guesthouses, you will be hard-pressed to find the...

Wonderful guest house. Dick and Mary were excellent hosts providing everything we could want including delicious dinner and breakfasts. Our children loved the farm and hiking to the dam overlooking the valley. The house is very clean and comfortable and we hope to return soon.
