Reviews from Airbnb

"An undiscovered gem. This historic old home sits wedged into a hillside above a serene Free State valley. The original kraal, an ancient eucalyptus tree, veggie gardens and a grove of poplar trees surround this near 200 year old farmhouse. The house is comfy, well-equipped and an entertainers delight. A large kitchen, big scullery, long dining room and a massive lounge are surrounded by the spacious rooms. The best part is the patio, facing the view, with a built-in bench and rattan lounge suite. At the back of the house, off the dining room is a fire basket for chilly or windy nights. Nina & Isak are salt-of-the-earth, kind, generous farmers with a heart for family, history and the land. Isak keeps the old house in tip-top shape with a brilliant off-grid system (solar & gas) and Nina brings such warmth to the home with her special touch, knowledge of the area and care for our experience. The area also offers lots of Anglo-Boer war ruins, breathtaking vistas and a 2-day hike that we will go back one day to do. All in all, this was a great find. If you want deep rest, to spend quality time with loved ones, explore Afrikaaner history or even hike without much elevation, (all within 2,5 hours of Joburg) this place is perfect. We will definitely be back."- Blake Sept 2020

"Nina is an excellent host!!! She provided the right level of help when required and was easily reachable. The whole house was tastefully put together, the deco was on point and amenities made for a pleasant stay. The farm was very peaceful, we felt safe and would definitely come back again. Not to mention the stunning backdrops for lots of social media posts."- Nthutukho Sept 2020

 

"Nina is a great host. Super responsive and friendly. We absolutely loved being on the porch watching over the hills and sheep from sunrise to sunset. The folding hills take your breathe away. Perfect getaway for a big group."- Suvania Nov 2020
