We stayed for a quick weekend getaway and not only are Cynthia and Fran wonderful and friendly hosts, but the hospitality and amenities offered were perfect too! They kindly stored our bikes for us, offered the most delicious home-made liquor on arrival and were always available should we have needed anything. The room was comfortable, and the location very ideal and in close proximity to the Cradle of Humankind.We can't wait for our next trip!

Dear Nadine & Konrad
Thank you so much for taking time out to do us a review. It was such a pleasure meeting you both and having you stay with us, we thoroughly enjoyed chatting with you. We hope that you will visit the Cradle of Humankind and enjoy some more bicycle riding in this beautiful area again, and stay with us in one of our rooms. You are both always welcome here :) We would love to get to know more about both of you and hear about your writing and blog - perhaps a weekend away will give you more time to enjoy braaing in our Cradle Braai Boma, enjoy the nature trail and bird watching and truly enjoy the peace that Meerkatplaats has to offer.
Warm regards
Cynthia & Fran

Nothing was too much trouble for Cynthia and Fran - they were very caring and made sure our stay was as good as it could be. The guesthouse and log cabin were very comfortable and we had a wonderful time, chilling and yes, even reading a bit! There's plenty to do in the area and yet the bush atmosphere of Meerkatplaats was a million miles away from the bustle of Johannesburg.

Fran and Cynthia are the most gracious and loving hosts.
I had a specific goal in getting out of town for a couple of days to rest up and refresh before the year kicks back into gear and busy becomes the norm.
Meeratplaats is a beautiful B&B set on a small holding with absolute peace and quiet, great bushvelt surroundings and absolute 5 star service.
Just being there in such a tranquil environment was like medicine to my soul and the objective of my stay was accomplished beyond measure.

Nothing was too much trouble for Fran and Cynthia who went further than the extra mile to make me feel at home and relaxed.

A place worth your attention and a few nights stay.

I think this was the fifth time visiting this place, this time with my girlfriend. One of the reasons this place is so good is that they know how to service their guests. Fran and Cyntia are loving and caring people. With that they can and will make you a delicious diner. The place feels like home and it's always sad to leave.

On our arrival Fran was waiting for us at the gate he immediately made us feel welcome. Fran and Cynthia are such lovely people that go out of their way to make sure you enjoy your stay, the log cabin was so cozy and very romantic my Husband was very impressed it felt like we were on a second honeymoon without the kids with our own little log cabin situated in the bush. The next morning we sat outside for our breakfast what a lovely breakfast. Will definitely recommend people to stay over at the Meerkatplaats guesthouse if they are looking for accommodation in the area.
