      We really liked the view of the place. There were wheat fields all around and you can see many stars at night.

      The cottage is lovely and well equipped, and surrounded by beautiful scenery. It's well situated for day trips - near to Greyton, Botriver and Hermanus.

      Loved the peace and quiet of wheat fields and farm cottage; balm after city frenzy...an easy weekend distance from Cape Town. Calm decor and comfy bedrooms, clean bathroom with loads of pristine towels, quaint kitchen and clever backup braai indoors, if weather is too miserable to braai outside. I appreciated the cleanliness. Spent day at hot springs. Left Grootvlei feeling refreshed and recharged.

      What a lovely and neat little place. Owners are very pleasant, accommodating and helpful. The surrounds are very peaceful and we very much enjoyed the quietness of the night. You are on your own yet not far from the Town. Was very sad to pack and leave.
