"We just want to thank you both for making our stay with you such a special one. You accommodated us in the lovely Weskus Cottage, decorated in pretty blues and whites, such a fresh and appealing look. Everywhere was immaculate and the kitchen was well equipped.

The surroundings of fruit trees and mountains were amazing, as were the stars. The peace was so welcome.

Sam and Charlie, your two gorgeous donkeys, were a bonus and we loved giving them a special treat of apples!

Your hospitality, and kindness, made our stay really wonderful. Nothing was too much trouble for you. Thanks again Gawie for setting, and lighting, our lovely fire on the stoep on our last evening.

We will certainly recommend Grootnek Guest Farm to friends in our village of McGregor (Western Cape) and to anyone else we come across in our travels."

"It truly was an unforgettable weekend at your guest farm!

The beautiful view and sunset over the valley was good food for the human soul.  The untouched nature was breathtaking.

The decor is done with so much class and style.  It is no secret that a lot of time, effort and thought went into it.  It is stunning.

Thank you for your warm welcoming and spontaneous hospitality.  It made us feel at home.

I wish you all the best for your dream coming true and be sure that you'll see a lot of us in the future.

Thank you for an unforgettable weekend."

"Many, many thanks for the wonderful stay at your farm. 

It is so beautiful and relaxing. The kids had a great time picking plums and herding the bull. The cottage is so well thought out, that we really only needed to bring food and clothes. 

We will definitely be back soon."

"We spent an absolutely wonderful weekend at Grootnek guest farm. The location and scenery is of the best in South Africa, the hospitality is warm and inviting and the farm offers a lovely atmosphere to relax in while still providing fun and interesting activities associated with farm life.

Grootnek is a great place to go to to relax and unwind and also would make a convenient stop over on the Route 62."
