Awesome, comfortable farmhouse, equipped with everything you need. Neat and tidy, well looked after grounds, with a trail that can be explored. Will definitely be back.

We had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed the accommodation as well as the lovely environment. Ken was a great host and went out of his way to make our stay as comfortable and memorable as possible, going out of his way to assist us in finding my grandmother's old farm house. Lovely clean bedding and utensils. Great walking trails with sightings of the endangered Cape Parrot. Highly recommend Hillside Lodge, our one night stay did not do it justice.

Friendly and helpful host, Ken. Very clean and big with everything you need. Great view. We only stayed for one night, but kept saying we would love to come back for a longer stay next time. Nice birding spot as well...

Hillside Lodge had all the ingredients I needed for a relaxed stay away from everything: fantastic views, amazing house, and an atmosphere of complete peace. Ken is an all encompassing host, and Hillside Lodge is a definite for anyone who needs a break for the hustle and bustle of life.
