What a great find. The perfect holiday spot to relax and enjoy what nature has to offer. Great hosts and very spacious and well equipt cottage. Spectacular views, lots of bird life and private access to the river (great for young kids).

We had a lovely stay at the Fynbosvlei cottages. The cottages had some of the most spectacular views we've experienced. It was the perfect place to relax. Our 2-night stay was just over too quick. Next time we'll surely stay for a little longer.
