If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of life, then this is the place. Beautiful countryside, welcoming hosts a place to be quiet and relax next to the river and soak up the beauty. Great location to explore the rest of the berg or take a trip up to Sani pass. Will definitely visit here again.

Craig and Jenny are the most welcoming hosts. Their fantastic location really makes you feel you are out in the country even though you are only 2 kms from all the facilities Underberg has to offer. The views are spectacular and an amble down to the river is a must. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be returning. Thanks Craig and Jenny.
