Beautiful, relaxing, secluded mountain cottages. Peaceful and stunning views and a dam to cool off in. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. Ideal to get away from the rush of life and the television!
In my opinion, Basterskloof rating depends on what you want from a holiday.
If you are looking for something very quiet, remote, tranquil and relaxing, I would highly recommend Basterskloof. The owners are wonderfully accommodating and the accommodation is very comfortable.
If you have slightly older kids who need more activities than swimming in a dam, hiking, and relaxing, you might not enjoy it as much; but still well worth it.
The remote placement of the cottages was not what was expected but was welcomed, and they're lovely. We anticipated that the pool would be easily accessible, but it requires a car drive to get to the main house. In lieu of the pool, you can swim in the dam however.
Things to consider:
You'll need to buy drinking water
You'll need a vehicle with raised suspension, 2x4 bakkie/truck should be fine, SUV, 4x4 anything is fine
All around, we love it!
Close to the city. Friendly hosts. Amazing peace. Clean cottage. Fair price. Nice views.
