      Awesome weekend stay. We loved the privacy so we could apply a clothing optional principle. Loved the break from technology but still enough comforts to not be roughing it too much. I would suggest that you advise people of the quality of the road a bit more. You told me that a car could get there but in our opinion you need a 4x4 to get there. My car most certainly would not have made it. We did arrive in the dark and I would say that the problem with arriving in the dark is not that the house has no electricity but that the road is dark and steep.We almost got blown away by the wind...

      Moon Gazing Cabin is a gem, because of the setting, the silence, the nature all around it. It has a lovely stoep to spend time on. Inside it was cosy with a huge fireplace and enough space to lounge about with boardgames and/or books to read. The kitchen had everything we needed and the bathroom was perfect.BUT unfortunately, we will not return. There were no gas bottles to supply hot water or heat the hotplate. We had to phone the owners. Gasbottles were brought to us late-afternoon on our 1st day. (Apparently the previous ones were stolen). Later when it became darker, it became apparent...

      Simple but very adequate for a weekend away from the city bustle. Beautiful views and nice ambiance for evenings at a huge fireplace inside! Also conveniently close to lovely towns, winefarms etc. Thought the wind would blow us away!

      I'd go back at any time! The view was spectacular! It was so peaceful and quiet. Just being so close to nature made us wanted to stay like forever! The crockery in the kitchen and the big ol' fireplace, almost brought tears to my eyes 'cause it took me way back to my childhood days in grandma's kitchen. I truly felt at home. The kids enjoyed the freedom of exploring the river and the mountain, insects, animals, waterfall, it was simply awesome! Thanks for adding to my family's memorable moments.
