Spekboom Cottage is a delightful, well planned 2 bedroom self-catering cottage. With comfortable beds and furniture, well thought out details, a big patio area with outdoor shower and splash pool (empty at present), we had everything we needed for a memorable stay. Do yourself a favour and drive the Groenfontein circular road, it takes you through magnificent scenery. There are... More

We heard from friends about this lovely gem in Calitzdorp and enjoyed it so much. The cottage is very spacious, tastefully decorated and very affordable! We stayed in Cottage 3 and it had two rooms with two bathrooms. The main bathroom had a huge shower. There is a lovely open plan lounge, diningroom and kitchen. We enjoyed the filter coffee... More

We stayed here when looking to buy in the area still our favourite view over Besemkop. It is a very comfortable one bedroom cottage with a little plunge pool. Pet friendly which was a real plus! It is now our neighbour cottage as we bought the one across the road

We were thrilled to find this place after driving for hours. We had our own two bedroom cottage with a lovely patio and tiny pool at a very very affordable rate. Also nice that it's walkable to the little town. I couldn't believe the space given here for the rate (2 large comfy bedrooms, large kitchen, sitting area, large patio,... More

My sister and I recently stayed at Spekboom cottages for a weekend with our children. We stayed in separate cottages and both cottages were really lovely, large and spacious. Both had lovely, large and private outside areas. The location was very convenient. The cottages were very clean and well equipped. We had breakfast there the following morning and it was... More

The cottage we were in had its own private little pool and patio area. The bedroom was clean and the shower spacious. The owners invited us to the bar to view the rugby match on the night and we had a great time. Excellent value for money!

We loved our little cottage at Spekboom cottages in Carlitzdorp! Although perhaps a little tired in decor and with very little in the kitchen drawers - if you want to do self catering take a tin opener, cork screw, colander and grater! The cottage has the most stunning views, a fabulous braai and enormous terrace with spacious garden and sweet... More

This place was a welcome retreat after a long drive from Stellenbosch. The place had cosy rooms albeit needing some maintainence. We had very friendly and helpful hosts however and it's a given they plan to upgrade the place as it has wonderful bones. The quaint cottages are in a lovely setting and the gardens are gorgeous with a rainbow... More
