          Quiet & secluded yet you're close enough to town should you need to do your daily shop. Surrounded by nature this cottage is just the perfect getaway destination. Our highlight was the walk to the different pools, deck, river - it's been so well thought out and just beautiful! Will definitely be back.

          We could not have loved this place more. The hosts were beyond amazing, the views, comfort, peace and all round hospitality was above and beyond. Our cottage was clean, lovely and so very comfortable. The fact that it was cleaned daily was a real treat and unexpected!

          Loved the river walk and little hideaways. Clean and friendly.

          Lovely stay! Large cottage with comfortable furniture and facilities. Fridge a little small! But that is the only issue we had. Neighbors very close and cottages share a wall, but we weren’t bothered. Gorgeous surroundings and very friendly hosts!

          Thank you for a very comfortable, clean and cosy stay, with very friendly hosts. We will definitely be back next time we are in the Underberg.
