      What an awesome place to spend a weekend.... I will definitely recommend it to others. Friendly hosts,  and the little touches made all the difference. Thank you!

      if you want a supremely clean, modern, but quiet countryside get away, this is what you need. We enjoyed the absolute quite no-traffic anywhere overnight stay. The owner's friendly instructions and good communication made it easy to locate. I we could, we would have stayed longer. (No TV. forces one to talk and spend time together, instead of looking at a screen all the time - bad habit)

      We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the beautiful Blue Gum cottage. Such beautiful scenery and the cottage had everything we needed. We look forward to visiting again. Thank you to Lizette for being so accommodating.

      We really had a great time at the cottage. A place we will definitely go back to. We like the view and the nice quietness - made it very relaxing to us. We would like to thank Lizette for the clean environment in the cottage itself.

      It was a beautiful tranquil cottage, with attention to detail and the little things that make a big difference. We loved our stay and would definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking to relax and get away from the city life.
