A    SPOT    IN   THE   BERG   YOU   WILL   ALWAYS    REMEMBER   !!!

 

             "   I  am  a  sister  to  the  Bride's  Veil  Chalet  (  www.bridesveilchalet.com ),    so  the  directions  to  find  us  are  the  same,  I  just  turn  off  the  district  road  2km  beforehand  and  travel  down  towards  the  river  for  1km,  making  us  3kms  apart.  Although  our  surroundings  are  very  different,  I  can  also  sleep  8  people  and  supply  you  with  all your  needs  bar  your  food  and  drinks,  as  I  am  also  self  catering,  my  appliances  are  also  gas,  there's  a  fridge  with  a  small  freezer  compartment,  a  gas  stove  with  oven,  gas  lights  and  hot  water.  So  no  need  to  drag  your  bedding,  fire  wood,  braai  etc  with  you,  it  is  all  here.  I  do  not  have  the  natural  bush  and  water  fall  that  my  sister  has  but  I  am  much  closer  to  the  river.  You  can  also  bring  what  ever  pet  you  have  with  you,  just  please  don't  take  your  goldfish  for  a  swim  in  the  river,  it  might  like  it  so  much  here  that  it  won't  want  to  go  home  with  you !!  Any  furry  friends  do  need  to  be  given  capstar  tablets  to  kill  any  fleas,  cause  the  moaning  and  groaning  of  the  next  family  really  does  hurt  my  ears  and  I  cannot  blame  them  as  I  cannot  scratch  my  tiles  either,  you  do  get  my  drift  !!  Well,  I  am  here  to  give  you  a  break  from  the  city,  to  relax,  exhale  and  enjoy  the  quietness.  One  little  thing  to  be  aware  of  please,  the  river  is  a  mountain  area  river,  so  when  you  are  lying  with  your  bot  in  the  sun  on  the  hot  rocks  and  it  starts  to  rain  extensively  up  the  valley,  you  could  get  washed  off  the  hot  rock  in  your  very  own  little  tsunami !!!  Cell  phone  signal  is  weak  but  available. 

YOUR  WELCOME  COME  INSIDE  AND  HAVE  A  LOOK.

  REFERALS :

 We could not be more satisfied, exactly what we were looking for. Merlyn and Lynton are two beautiful souls making us feel welcome as if we never left home, a place we will hope to return to very soon. Hiking, star gazing and best of all - serenity- !! Thank you for a holiday we will have to cherish forever.     Jean-Paul and Simone.

 We had  fantastic holiday. A typical Heidi-house, surrounded by majestic mountains, beautiful clear sky and best of all, magical serenity. We've enjoyed it so much here, we will definitely return again. We had a wonderful time together with our children, exploring the crystal clear pools for little fish and hiking and the games and the books, the fireplace made our time together extra special. We really enjoyed it here. Thank you for your hospitality and the time and value you've added to this cozy place. Sincere regards    Steve and Helen Barnard plus Rubin, Henri and Karlien.

What a beautiful, peaceful spot. Exactly what we were looking for. Our Josie had a ball and we nearly ended up taking / adopting another friendly soul. We loved every minute of our stay and will definitely be back. We have found our special spot in heaven. Thank you.           Janet an Mike Mill.
