A beautiful, spacious house refurbished to very high standards (except kitchen: spacious, well equipped but basic); tastefully decorated and fully equipped to make it feel you are in a home from home. Set in the beautiful surroundings of the Bergview Estate with lots of safe walking and hiking trails to suit any taste. Peaceful, yet within easy driving distance of all that the central Berg has to offer. We cannot recommend this place highly enough!!

Emfuleni is a lovely home, spacious and well equipped. The children said it is "die beste huisie" and that says it a lot. We had everything we need. We had a lovely walk, the Grotto hike and it was so good to clear our heads in the beautiful surroundings of Emfuleni and spend quality time with the children. We will definitely be back in the future.

It was very comfortable but the kitchen could be upgraded and a carport put up. Apart from that, it was wonderful.
