Loved our stay at Maroela Cottage. Beautiful house in a stunning setting surrounded by the Arican bush and wildlife. Spacious house with everything you need. Game drives with Frank were outstanding. Maria was a great help in the house. Will definitely return.

Maroela cottage is amazing! It was so peaceful and wonderful connecting with game such as klipspringer, monkeys, baboons and squirrels right on our doorstep. The house is very comfortable and well equipped and Maria was a great help every day.

We had a wonderfully relaxing time at Maroela Cottage. The wild game wandering close to the house was a highlight as well as the stunning views. Our children played board games for hours - just like when we were kids. Well equipped and spacious.

The house was a lot bigger than I was expecting and it was beautifully furnished. The view of the Waterburg mountain was spectacular. There was rain prior to our arrival so the upstairs rooms carpet was wet due to a roof leak and the floor in the upstairs room felt a bit unstable. The house really was spectacular to look at and the children enjoyed the fact that we had a pool at the house as well.

Lovely and clean and private! We had a lovely weekend stay at Maroela and enjoyed every minute. We just struggled with the light switches a bit...but managed to get the hang of it later.
