Our stay at Bear Trap Self-catering in Grabouw was lovely. The house was clean, beautiful and welcoming. We were 10 people, although the size of the house could of accommodated many more. The outdoor braai area was very popular amongst my friends, and my personal favourite was the jacuzzi. Deborah was a great host. She gave us our freedom, and was always available to be contacted. It was our first time in Grabouw, and I could clearly see how the town is rapidly developing. Our house was very close to the shops and many restaurants. The house wasn't in the best area. But, I would definitely return to stay there again as we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The Bear Trap accommodation was ideal for our garden route trip on the way down to Langebaan from Durban. The house has been very nicely renovated and provides a warm welcoming feeling throughout. The rooms are comfortable and spacious, and the living areas and kitchen are everything one could ask for. We also used the lovely outside braai/barbecue facility to host a little get together with some family who live close by and really enjoyed the space. Deborah came and met us to discuss our stay, she was very friendly and easy going, she gave us some information about the area and we would certainly recommend staying at the property.
