      Definitely for a proper relaxation and off the grid, Dirk se Huisie is the place to be. That dam and lilos! (Yeah i burnt). We just cooked for 3 days and enjoyed the view with it. What a magical little treasure. We want to come again soon!

      My wife and I spent three nights in Dirk se Huisie to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were bowled over by the spectacular scenery, tranquility and the hospitality displayed by Oom Johan and Tannie Pina.

      Beautiful setting, rustic but sufficiently equipped, very friendly and helpful hosts that go above and beyond to make your stay memorable; the perfect setting to recharge your batteries and appreciate nature.

      Quiet, just off the proverbial beaten track, high above the hot Citrusdal and Swartland, with views to even Baardskeerdersbos if it is clear! Beautiful hike up a mountain from the back door of the house, through varied fynbos and with spectacular weathered rocks like in the Cederberg (including a massive arch).
