Located high in the hills above Graskop, near Berlin Falls, these bungalows offer really superb accommodation. The grounds are a delight, beautifully maintained with far-reaching views over the local landscape. The bungalows themselves are immaculate and very well equipped. I enjoyed sitting on the balcony with a glass or two, watching the weavers coming and going and the sun setting... More

We drove from Joburg to here on our way to the Kruger park. It is a comfy apartment that has everything you need, including a braai area. Unfortunately, it was quite quiet while we were there but that is obviously not something our host could have helped us with.

We chose this place because of the great location to explore the Blyde River Canyon. It is very close to the waterfall Berlin. Nice and helpful host. Room clean, cozy with a fireplace. We are delighted with the room and garden. Stay in November 2014

Very neat and tidy accommodation, in a lovely quiet area outside of town. Cottage was well equipped and the daily service a big plus. The face brick interior made it dark inside, but the fireplace made up for that. Great base to explore from.

Very close to Berlin Falls, Gods Window, Lisbon Falls. Also close to the 3 Rondavels and the Forever Blyde River Canyon Resort where it's excellent for hiking tours. Just ask the owner for tipps and basically anything else you might be interested in, too. He knows everything :D

My partner and I stayed at Thaba Tsweni for one night, on our way from Kruger Park and to Blyde River Canyon. We simply loved the place: quiet, in a great location, fully equipped (kitchenware included). The lodge is composed of mini-apartments with a large kitchen and dining area, a spacious bathroom with both shower and bath tub, a lovely... More

Great location just outside of Graskop. The Chalet was clean and spacious and although a little on the dark and dated side it was perfect for a 2 night stay. A nice seating area with a Braai outside each chalet. The owner Wendel was extremely helpful and had plenty of suggestions and tips for activities in the area.

Let's start with the good things: the garden is pretty, and the owners are friendly and helpful. But I cannot understand the good ratings on TripAdvisor: in my opinion the furniture is 40 years old, they have a yellowish color. The fridge is so old I had to switch it off, because of the noise it made. The stove is... More
