Peaceful, clean, good linen, fully equipped kitchen. No unpleasant surprises. Will recommend Rustpunt to my friends.

We loved our two night stay in this quiet corner of the quaint village. Looking out over the Karoo from the stoep was magical, and we will definitely be back.The house is well equipped, and although it doesn’t have aircon, the fan and thick walls ensured that we remained cool on a scorcher of a day that reached 37 degrees.We love this little town, and can’t wait to visit again.

Thank you for a brilliant stay at Rustpunt. What a perfect place, private and beautifully refurbished.Thank you very much for the treats.We recommend this accommodation which is 5 minutes walk from the village. At night we used the car to get to the village as it was raining but during the day we found the walk easy and enjoyable.

A well appointed  self catering unit;however,no internet connection was a drawback.Beautiful surroundings and close to the center of an intriguing village.
