“Our very "own" holiday house”

Reviewed 12 Mar 2014

We come to stay at "That place" so often that our young daughter calls it her holiday house. It is for us exactly that. We keep returning to the wonderful cosy house which is for us a home from home. The house has everything in it that you could possibly need, and should there be something that it does not have, David and Joanna are wonderful hosts and will sort anything out for you. The beds are comfy and the children's room is filled with books and toys, but my favourite feature is the handmade "Little Prince" wooden headboard. The house is filled with works by David and his son. The swimming pool is deliciously inviting and the deck a perfect place to laze away the Summer days.Rain or shine there is plenty to do , both at the house and in the surrounding area.There is nothing more comforting than cosying up next to the fireplace, either inside or out on a rainy day or chilly Winter evening. The house is located a short distance from all the local attractions, from Monkey land to the world's highest bungy. there is something around to suit all tastes. If you enjoy a lie in, I would recommend eye masks as the sun does shine through the curtains very early. But why not wake up and look over the spectacular gorge to the elephants out for their morning walk and the sounds of the monkeys and birds in the distance? We have stayed at That Place many times and will always return whenever we can, whatever the season. Our dogs (who are admittedly very well behaved) are also welcome and have as much fun as we do! I would highly recommend this house, but just hope that in doing so we are still able to get a booking when we need one!

“Absolutely perfect!!!”

Reviewed 5 Jul 2011

This is my favorite place to visit! It's perfect for families - with everything you can think of to enjoy a holiday, rain or shine, and it's also great for just couples. That place is situated in a beautiful and private area with the most most amazing view of the elephants from its large deck! You feel comfortable and right at home the second you walk in the door. It is filled with beautiful artwork, tons of books, dvd's - everything you can think of! I love the multiple out-door dining areas, fire places, pool and sauna - even the master bedroom has its own deck overlooking the forest below! walking over to the neighboring wine estate for a tapas lunch is a must! Wonderful atmosphere, amazing value, great memories - I will be back to That Place many times!! Thanks for everything, Jo!!

“The Best Place in the World!”

Reviewed 19 Apr 2010

We have stayed at That Place countless times! It is the most wonderful place for a family holiday, the kids love the pool and the freedom to explore all the land around, my husband loves the wonderful braai area David has created and I love the adjoining wine estate for a great lunch! Jo has thought of everything, from a well stocked kitchen to a room full of toys for the kids on a wet day. It is a fab place to kick off your shoes and relax, watch the ellies and take in the amazing view from the balcony or sit in front of a roaring fire and use the mountain of wood provided. We love it so much we made a special visit back to South Africa from England just so we could stay again! Really a very, very special place.

Simply wonderful. No other words to describe this amazing peaceful place. Thanks Jo.

“Just do it!”

Reviewed 15 Apr 2010

This is by far the best equipped holiday place I have ever stayed at. Every need is catered for and very stylishly done. The house is beautifully designed with lots of quirky artwork and handmade furniture. There is a stoep with a wonderful view over an elephant sanctuary and, if you are a bird lover, you are in paradise. You can see Knysna loeries without even leaving the premises. Fantastic! There is a really nice pool area with a sauna and a definite must is lunch at the neighbouring vineyard where you can eat tapas style dishes al fresco accompanied by local wine or champagne. If you like dogs, be sure to tell the hostess and she will open the gates for her eclectic range of hounds to come and say hello. Great location, great hospitality - thanks for a wonderful stay.

“Love That Place”

Reviewed 8 Apr 2010

We have been going to That Place since December 2005. It is a real home from home, with friendly considerate hosts and a delightful troupe of dogs. It is unpretentious and comfortable and Joanna's experience in the hospitality industry is evident in all the special touches around the house. The setting in The Crags is beautiful. There is lots to do in the surrounding area. We will be going back this year in December.
