“The unit was spotlessly clean, cozy and inviting. The view from all the windows were breathtaking vistas of the Maluti mountains surrounding Clarens. The cleaning staff were discreet and never intruded while we were at home. The fireplace added that extra bit of luxury with chopped wood and a cleaned out fireplace every morning.”

Rajesh, September 2020 - Oak

“We stayed here overnight (family of 4 including 2 teenagers) and loved it. The property is better than the pictures and well located to provide god views of mountains. The property is very well furnished – 2 big bedrooms for 6, clean linen and towels, well functional kitchenette with all you need, and a great braai (South African barbeque) under the Oak , as well as a fireplace with a great evening setup for wine and dinner in case you wish to stay in. Plenty of firewood which was really welcome in the cold evening. Lizelle’s communications was superb. Really loved staying here – Thanks so much. Would highly recommend for families or couples.
