Perfect location on the edge of town (thus with beautiful views) but still close to the main town centre. Well-equipped kitchen and braai area (which encloses so would still be useable in Winter). The table at the back overlooking the view and the passing Sprinbok was a piece of heaven. I would definitely stay again the next time I'm in Riebeek Kasteel

What a wonderful place to enjoy a weekend away from the city. We were welcomed by our host and felt relaxed immediately. ChicShack is located walking distance to the town centre, while allowing you to have coffee in the courtyard, a sheltered braai area and watching the springboks play in the field- amazing.I would be back every weekend if possible!

The Chickshack was an amazing place to escape the busy city. Walking distance from the main town but far enough to feel you are at in the country side. Our host was friendly, helpful and very accommodating. The cottage is a rustic, cosy and comfortable. Highly recommend it for a quiet getaway.
