Guest Reviews

  • The cottage (Dassie) was perfect for my wife and I! It had absolutely everything we needed, down to kindling , firewood, and firelighters. Tastefully designed and furnished and a wonderful stay. Next time we'll do more than just overnight there.


  • I LOVED being there - and especially the trails. Out there hiking yesterday morning starting before light and going further and for much longer than I expected was such a joy. Was dreaming of that again this morning and wishing that I could have stayed a lot, lot longer to be out there on the land.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Dassie Cottage. We loved the tranquility and beautiful natural scenery. This nature reserve is conserving a wonderful slice of renosterveld, a highly endangered vegetation type, so it is a rare pleasure to be able to explore this type of landscape.”


  • Thanks for having us over the weekend. You have such a great place and we all really enjoyed ourselves. The consensus amongst the group was that we should come for a longer stay.
