Our host communicated with us very well concerning directions to the accommodation, and recommendations for activities in the area. He was very welcoming, and the accommodation was exceptionally kept. The pool, garden, and views allowed for a very relaxing getaway!

Frans and Mirjam were wonderful hosts who went out of their way to make me feel at home. The cottage was not available for the full time required so they offered me to stay in their home during that period which I accepted. Great conversations were had over many a glass of wine. Their hospitality is the kind that makes the Airbnb community the best means of fulfilling ones accommodation requirements... Oh and the views of Magoebaskloof from the property are magnificent too:)

We spent a very relaxing two days in Magoebaskloof at 'Cottage with a View' hosted by Frans and his wife. Wonderful atmosphere and our hosts were extremely friendly and welcoming. We had access to a two bedroom cottage sleeping four and we had all the facilities for self catering. Lots of nice eating places within 15 to 30 minutes and also nice sight seeing opportunities and walks.
