Breath taking and just enough for two. The view is beautiful and the fireplace makes it very cosy. There is also a very nice hiking trail to catch some fresh air and appreciate the quietness away from the city life.

Awesome place with awesome views. Very clean! Perfect place for a weekend breakaway. Close to Clarens, yet far away to just be in the mountains. Also met the owners - an extremely nice couple from the Netherlands with a love for nature.

A wonderful place with 360 degrees beauty, surrounded by the Maluti Mountains. The rooms are well equipped, super comfortable and with dramatic Mountain View’s. A short walk to a pristine river to picnic by and swim in. An amazing getaway.
