Step-Aside is a hidden corner of serentiny just outside the busy on-goings of George. It located on top of a hill, nestled in-between by a lush coniferous forest - quiet evenings, beautiful skyline and a peaceful night's rest are a given. The property is very well maintained: the rooms are clean and looked after, the gardens are beautiful and there is a touch of domestic animal life to make a homely atmosphere. The facilities are also able to cater for large groups of people: backpackers, events, and has braai areas for every day use. If you are looking for a break from the busy city-life then...

We stayed in one of the family units, the basics are covered, and the units are big and very clean. What stole my heart was the view, the quiet and the feeling of serendipity you experience while staying there. A must for everybody who's soul is found in the mountains.

It was truly a surprise to encounter a venue that is so close to nature (the forest was on our doorstep).Cleanliness is a big plus, bedding was squeeky clean, bathrooms (albeit a bit small) was immaculate.Martin was truly a joy to meet, and his warm welcome made us feel at home.The only downside was some other guests that were rather noisy and inconsiderate when arriving late at night. We really enjoyed it, but next time we will definitely stay in a cottage instead of the dorm rooms which was a bit small and crowded with 4 adults.
