About Riverbend Self-catering Cottages

Nestled in the outskirts of the Magaliesburg Mountains and surrounded by indigenous bushveld, the Riverbend Self-catering Cottages are the perfect hideaway from a bustling city life.

Our three tastefully furnished cottages with king-size beds, kitchenettes, a bathroom with shower and a small patio, offer all you need to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Relax in the shade of the spacious lapa with built-in-braai, cool down in the plunge pool on hot sunny days, or let your soul breathe and drift away while sitting on the deck overlooking a small river.

This little piece of paradise is perfect for your holiday, whether you are near or far from home. Pamper yourself with a relaxing massage from our experienced masseur and feel all the stress and tension flow away.

If you are looking for a romantic weekend, spending time with friends and family, or just in need of a break from your daily stresses, we are happy to welcome you.

                  My partner and I stayed there over the 2019 Human Rights day long weekend. We had a fantastic time. The owner, Werner is most welcoming and you can feel the extra special attention provided to his guests. He checked up on us the whole time but not in an intrusive manner, especially because we were there during loadshedding. Highly recommended if you want a secluded and alone space with a partner.

                  We had a lovely, peaceful family weekend at Riverbend. Werner was very attentive and a super host.

                  The cottages are well equipped and quite large. They are spaced far apart for privacy with the splash pool central to all. The large fridge in the cottage #3 was great.Werner and his staff are extremely helpful and accommodating. We will most certainly use this facility again if we find the need to "escape" from the city pressures. The Bird life is amazing.On the down side... The King size mattress could be better quality, but was OK for 2 nights.

                  We enjoyed everything about this place. The owner and staff are welcoming and made our stay comfortable. We had the whole place to ourselves which was a bonus.
