      My husband Matome and I spend the long weekend at Elands Rust and I must say that it was incredible. The house is decorated in such a way that you immediately feel at home upon arrival and each new day bring a new discovery to be made just indoors. The romantic evenings spent in front of the fireplace were amazing to say the least. The walks we took to the mountain surroundings were breathtaking and we did afternoon bike rides. We will definitely be back for a longer stay and we recommend the place 100%, you will not regret. Elizabeth was just too awesome and helpful. Thank you to Lydia...
