  • Very nice stay. The location was super convenient, and Kathy was a great host and very quick to respond on any enquiries. Wisteria cottage was comfortable and cosy, the perfect syopwvwr on the way to the coast.

    Rob2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely little home. Very peaceful. Value for money! Cathy was constantly checking in and keeping in touch to see if we are settled. Will definitely stop over again!

  • Kathy is a thoughtful and considerate host. I was running late and she was flexible with check-in time. The weather had also changed and she made sure I had hot water, and that the electric blanket was switched on by the time I arrived. The cottage is amazing, and has that old world style - it reminded me of my grandmother's house. It is also fully equipped and sparkling clean. Great value for money, and 5 minutes away from the historic Little Church.

    Wyford is a beautiful old school farm set in a valley just 2km off the N3 (about midway between Johannesburg and Durban) offering private self catering cottages. Wyford is great for families, especially with children, and good for couples, solo adventurers and business travellers. It is of historical interest as it is situated on the first pass over the Drakensburg mountains used by the ox wagons taking supplies to the mines from the coast.
    The Garden Cottage is a small cozy unit in an enclosed garden. It is a bed sitter type of unit with a double bed and a single bed in the same room with a sitting nook with a fireplace and television at one side and a kitchen at the other. The separate bathroom has a free standing shower and a bath. There is a portable braai in the garden and a car port plus a satellite dish but bring own decoder and card.
    We are in a mountainous region and half way between Johannesburg and the KwaZulu Natal coast. Day trips are possible to some of the Battlefields such as Spionkop, Isandlwana, Fugitive's Drift, BloodRriver as well as the Northern Natal Drakenberg resorts. There are several restaurants within a 20 km radius.

You had everything we needed! Will be back soon! Highly recommend!

    Philippa2019-04-13T00:00:00Z

Communication with Babette was uncomplicated and she provided us quickly with water canisters when the water pressure was too low due to the loadshedding. We would stay again!

  • Best Airbnb hosts! Monique and her husband were the kindest most hospitable hosts I’ve met yet. Their place was spotlessly clean and had all the necessities and all the luxuries. They helped us with anything we needed and even went out of their way to help us repair our motorbike. I felt very warm and welcome with them. I would recommend to everyone and I look forward to staying there again.

  • Megan was an excellent host. Her sparkling clean house was such a special treat, to calmly spend few days away from the hustle and bustle. Megan was prompt with her responses and helped us a great deal. She lent us her gas brai which made our stay super special. She gave us great tips around the city and for the spa. Our doggie, loved the garden and had the time of his life. A beautiful place which feels like home away from home. A soulful sanctuary.

  • We had a wonderful stay at Oppi hoek, Marius and his wife were so nice, always helping and asking if everything was ok. We had unfortunately a lot of power cuts but they always make sure we could had a little bit of electricity to shower (thanks to the generator) and providing us a gas cylinder to cook. We also had a little leak in the room that Marcus tried to fix but nothing major. Moreover the breakfast was really good!

    Céline2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • This was the perfect stay over for us! We travelled from Durban to Pretoria with this as a halfway stop. It was a great place to rest and we arrived to a warm welcome in a beautiful apartment. Walked to the spar down the road for a leg stretch and cooked in the apartment. Good breakfast and comfy bed! Will definitely return.

    The house is a Victorian style house, with wooden floors and high ceilings, creating a cool and airy atmosphere. The room stays cool throughout summer, during winter times there is a fireplace to keep guests warm and cosy. My wife and I value peace and harmony. For that reason we created this room for the weary traveller who wants a space that will disconnect them from the hassles of the outside world. We value guest's privacy but we also enjoy to meet new people.
    The town has its own mountain, called Platberg. For the adventuring guest the mountain can make for a great one day hike.

  • I arranged a surprise birthday weekend for my other half. It was such a magical place! Our 5 great danes enjoyed adventuring, swimming and hiking with us. We had so much to do. The house was cozy and had everything we needed. The fireplace is such a spoil. The mist hanging above the water, early morning was one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen. Leon and Elsa made the weekend all worth it. We were warmly welcomed with a special note and they will definitely be seeing us in the future. Thank you for making this weekend so special ! It was perfect!

    Sitting in the shade of a 150 year old Elm tree with a view of Platberg Mountain and sleeping in one of Harrismith’s historical landmarks is a treat. Harrismith is the gem of the Free State, the gateway to the Drakensberg. You can fly fish on uncrowded waters, bird along forgotten back roads or just enjoy the peace and quiet of a country town.
    The Rose Garden manor house was built in 1895 and is owned and run by David and Gill Weaver who have maintained the tradition of a classic B+B so you get to experience life with a South African family.
    Safe and secure rural town

    Wyford is a beautiful old school farm set in a valley just 2km off the N3 (about midway between Johannesburg and Durban) offering private self catering cottages. Wyford is great for families, especially with children, and good for couples, solo adventurers and business travellers. It is of historical interest as it is situated on the first pass over the Drakensburg mountains used by the ox wagons taking supplies to the mines from the coast.
    Poplar Cottage looks on to a dam and has a fenced garden. It has one bedroom with a double bed and en suite shower bathroom. There is a second bedroom with 2 single beds and a second bathroom with bath. Upstairs in the loft there are 2 single beds and a double sleeper couch. The living area is large and incorporates the kitchen, dining area and lounge with a fireplace. There is a covered braai area in the garden and a car port. There is a television set and a satellite dish but bring your own de coder and card.
    We are in a mountainous region and half way between Johannesburg and the KwaZulu Natal coast. Day trips are possible to some of the Battlefields such as Spionkop, Isandlwana, Fugitive's Drift, BloodRriver as well as the Northern Natal Drakenberg resorts. There are several restaurants within a 20 km radius.
  • Always a pleasure to stay at this picturesque spot, tucked away between Johannesburg and Durban. Beautiful, peaceful, restful and welcoming. Rustic cottage with stone walls and natural interior deco. Really special, with incredible views and lovely host.

    Pamela2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • The fotos on the listing doesn't do this cottage justice. It is so beautiful and the surrounds are absolutely gorgeous. We had a short stay due to car trouble, but will definitely be back again for a longer stay. We had our 2 dogs with us and they also loved the farm stay. Sheila and her husband were very helpful in assisting us with Jumper Cables for our car.

    Lizelle2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely wonderful cottage, probably the most comfy houses I've been in. Recommended for a quiet and relaxing break away, or as a overnight resting spot while heading to a further destination.

  • We were travelling to Margate with 3 Jack Russells and needed a break in the trip from Jhb. We found this gem and booked immediately. First time that they saw cows and went crazy. Wish we could share the videos. It was really a nice break from the of Jhb. If you want to clear your mind and just relax..... this is your place.

    Harrismith is nestled in the foothills of Platberg mountain with pleasant summer temperatures (highs of 25°C to 33°C) but it does get extremely cold in winter. Be warned that we can experience 4 seasons in one day so always be prepared with a good range of clothing.
  • It was really wonderful to stay at Rhoela guest house. We stayed here for 5 hours (in night) as we had to continue our journey towards Underberg. She had provided us everything which we needed for a comfortable sleep. She was happy to receive even though we were late to reach to her place in night. Nice gesture. Thanks for being the perfect host.

    Gaurav2019-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • I agree with a previous comment because the photos are not advantageous for housing! The house very clean with a neat decor and the staff can not do enough. A bit cold in July, but Rheola had electric heaters and we had blankets available. Good place to visit the Golden Gate Highland Nation Park and the Royal Natal. We are off the beaten path to discover the "real life".

    Francois2019-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • If you are on a walk in the area, the guest house Rheola is for you. We went in July and the nights can be cold! but we were hot. very clear information. rustic deco but c the house is spacious.
