So sorry to leave this paradise. What a wonderful experience, loved every moment. A glass of wine, cows mooing and a peacefulness like none other. A much needed rest. What an amazing getaway. Fell in love with Jock and Lawrence. Wanted to take them with us!                                                                                                                                                  Rosica and Rob, April 2011.

Colin, Bronwyn, Cole and Berkeley, Thank you for a very special time staying on your just-what-we’re-always-looking-for accommodation.                                                                                     Rob and Sally, April 2011.

Baie dankie dat ons weer by hierdie pragtige plek van julle kon bly, dis baie spesiaal. Dankie ook dat jully sulke pragtige mense is.                                                                                           Wilfred and Elize, April 2011.

Excellent after and before the stress of tests and life. A wish to stay longer, forever seems nice, but not forgetting the importance of enjoying one night away.                                                                            April 2011.

We lucked upon this beautiful place and we’re sure to return. One of the best nights away from home that we’ve had. We really appreciated all the little details. And definitely appreciated the bigger picture! Thanks and hope to see you soon!                                             Nick and Kiki, April 2011

This place is truly one of the nicest places I have stayed. The love put into it reminds me of home.                                                   Kiki, April 2011.

Beautiful surroundings, beautiful people and a beautiful dog! It was too short. Definitely coming back soon!                                                                                                                                                Dave and Tokkie, April 2011.

Thank you once again. We did a bit of walking this time and the land is beautiful when you’re up close to it – wonderful patterning and detail in the succulents and rocks. We’ll see you again soon. Jock was a delight. Thanks.                                                                                                         Pippa and Vic, April 2011.

Everyday so much to do and everyday all things are new and fresh and bright, like morning dew – That’s how things are, at River View.                                                       We had a great time! Thanks for sharing the magic.                                                                                                      David and Jane, 2011.

Different people have different views on what constitutes Paradise, River View comes very close to our ideal, with it’s majestic mountains, and flora. We spent our three days here, exploring all the local magnificent passes and poorts – Montagu, Robinson’s, Cloete, Rooiberg, Huisrivier, Seveweekspoort, and Bosluys down to Gamkapoort dam. Swartberg and Die Hel are still install for us (and Meiringspoort, too!).                                             We are keen lovers of birds an we saw a good variety here.                                             …Thanks to Bronwyn, Colin and Jock for your idyllic cottage and for making us so welcome here.                                                                                                                                                       Joe and Marge, April 2011.

Sjoe, wat ‘n uitsig! Ons sal beslis weer kom, kan nie alles gedoen en gesien kry in drie dae nie! Was gelukking om op ons laaste oggend sneeu op the bergtoppe te kry. Die hondjie is ‘n darling!                                                                                                                                                            Esmert, April 2011.

x3 BMW 1200 GS bikes, all the way from Durbs and Joeys, three intrepid drivers and two lady pillions – that’s us! On our way to CT. What an overnight stop! You offered us solace from the noise of our madness. Roaring fire – spaghetti bolognaise – thanks for the loan of your pots! Will be back – if only to see our dinner guest, Jock!                                                  Love John, Lol, Greg, Dave and Natasja, April 2011

Long overdue, our meeting. Your quest for a life out of the city, a place to allow your two delightful boys freedom to explore and be, is admirable. This is a very special spot with mountains, heat, cold, water, dryness and unique vegetation. A wonderful three days for Sandi and me. Thank you.                                                                                                           Peter and Sandi, April 2011.

Thank you once again for an unforgettable stay at this magical place. We’ll be back!                                                   Japie and Joyce, April 2011.

Not all people are able to feel or touch their inner souls…I challenge that notion in a place like this. The unbelievable peace that descends on your mind, body and soul in a place of such beauty is transfixing. Lying in the hammock, the icy breeze of a cold front blowing, wind gently breezing, cotton wool clouds and impenetrable silence…this is the most amazing peace I feel.   …Thank you for sharing your special place with us all, we are blessed.                                                                                                                         Greg, April 2011.
