This is a hidden gem and my absolute favourite hideaway in the Klein Karoo. Ive stayed here on a few occasions and the accommodation is above expectations, with the perfect balance between luxury and basics. Well done to the owners!

Beautiful surrounds and amazing mountains. Everything that could be required was in the house. A comfy, clean and relaxing stay. Friendly and helpful hosts, providing useful instructions. Highly recommended.

We are glad that you appreciated the character and ambiance of Die Stalle, that is exactly what we hoped for - that our guests can relax in the old world atmosphere, with all modern amenities.

We visit Matjiesvlei almost yearly - normally staying in Die Stalle but stayed in Bokwagtershuis this time and it was THE BEST! Our 2 young daughters loved being able to explore and it’s an absolute recharge for adults! Can’t recommend it enough!
