Guest Comments & Reviews

Thank you very much for the privilege and great joy it was for me to call ‘Nightjar’ my home for a few days! These spectacular mountains, vineyards and blossom-speckled trees have done wonders for my soul! I was in a wonderful ‘twilight zone’ somewhere between napping & reading, only exerting myself in the afternoons for a walk! I shall definately be back, and will tell everyone I know of this beautiful place and it’s immaculate, cosy, well-equipped cottages.

Loved being in nature, the mountains, river, peace and quiet. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. It was just wonderful being away from City Life. At home we have security gates and camera’s, double burglar bars on each window and an alarm but at Pat Busch we felt so safe. We even left our doors unlocked and windows open it was wonderful to feel free. – Vicky Burmingham

We had the privilege of staying at Hadeda cottage for 3 nights this past weekend and we had such an amazing time! We must thank you for a wonderfully relaxing venue which allowed us to escape our daily routine and frantic “race against time”. Our little girl thoroughly enjoyed the play area and our slow walks to the dam – and her favourite spot was cuddled up between the two of us as we sat in front of the fire! Thank you for a really great time. The chalet was incredibly comfortable with all our needs taken care of. We could really not ask for anything more! We know we’ll be back soon.

Pat Busch was our first stop on a two-week trip to the Garden Route with two young children. We stayed at Hadeda cottage and loved every moment. This is an incredibly peaceful place with a beautiful, sleepy view across vineyards to the hills. There is a lake to swim in within the reserve, and boats and life jackets are provided too. There are plenty of walks catering to different abilities. The cottage was charming and luxurious – beautiful bedding, a fireplace for colder weather, a well equipped braai, a fantastically large bath, wi-fi, and a properly equipped kitchen. It felt incredibly safe – the children ran around freely, enjoying the large beetles and other creepy crawlies. The cottages are well spaced out so you barely meet your neighbour, but having said that the people we met all seemed to be in awe of the place – from families with young children to couples on a romantic break. It felt like a well-kept secret and we’d love to come back. The owners are warm and relaxed, and have managed to deliver a standard of self-catering accommodation that you rarely find, while appearing very hands-off, which we really appreciated. Hope to try Lindi’s Reiki next time!

Just to thank all of you for the wonderful stay we had at Nightjar. The accommodation was fantastic and the view speaks for itself, the trails, dams, waterfalls and the flowers were magnificent, I can only say with all honesty that we will be back next year.

I believe that every now and then you need to get away from the city life and enjoy birds singing, peace & quiet. That’s what I found while relaxing on the green grass looking up to the clear blue sky. The cottage was so clean and perfect and the fireplace was just the cherry on top. I loved every minute of it!

Just to say thank you for a wonderful weekend in your lovely cottage – it was everything we had hoped for. We had time to do some wine tasting and we visited some local restaurants, but the best part was to go home to the little house in the mountains. We even saw some wildlife one evening when we returned after dark – a Cape Hare, a skunk and a porcupine, all of them crossing the road right in front of us! Thank you for your hospitality, for the lovely bottle of Merlot and for all the little extras to make our stay so special.

I would just like to thank you again on behalf of my wife and I for the privilege to have spent the weekend on your farm. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would also recommend it to other nature loving people. We did the Middelrug trail on Saturday and the views were breathtaking. And the fishing was fantastic as well. The bass, although smallish in size, were really feisty and put up a big fight. We plan to return in future. Thanks for everything.

Thank you so much for a lovely venue, which made our weekend comfortable and gave us lots of opportunities to bond and to be together. Thank you once again for a special weekend.

– Mayne Schabort

We had a wonderful time during our stay in the Peach cottage. The cottage is delightful and had everything we needed (the weather was even perfect). Thanks to you and Stephan for the hospitality and wine tasting. I will definitely recommend it.

– Alex Buys

Quince cottage with spacious lounge and fireplace, which I used every night, beautiful walks either in the valley or down the dirt road, an opportunity to cycle around Bonnievale area, AND the fact that my spot got sun all day suited this ‘Dassie’ perfectly!! The bird life was a special delight.

Everybody commented about the excellent venue and the effort that you have put in, to make out stay a pleasant one. I will definitely recommend your facilities to anyone that wants to come and spend a relaxing time away from the hustle and bustle of everyday live.
