"Merlot is a beautifully equipped cottage and we were delighted with it. Sankie has thought of everything in the kitchen making our cooking easy and comfortable.

The view from the stoep amazed us  -  when we arrived we couldn't stop looking at it!

The family have been very kind and generous to us, always helpful and nothing is too much trouble. We even had a ride on the grape harvester!

We were due to move on elsewhere but couldn't leave so now we are changing cottages and staying another 10 days!"

"Again we had a wonderful time at your Plaas. Next time we will stay even longer. A week is too short for us.

We love the stunning view and the sound of the birds when we wake up.

Thank you so much for all your kindness and we hope to see you next year again."

Hanneke and Jaap (3rd visit)

"Hier kon ons die stadsgejaag verruil stilte en rustigheid. Die akkommodasie is 'n uitstekende balans van luuksheid, gemak en veeldoelingheid, sonderom kontak met die ongerepte omringende natuurskoon te verloor."

"...will most certainly be back for longer next time. One of the absolute beste self-dcatering establishments in the Western Cape.

Cannot fault anything  -  really excellent value for money. Congratulations on your superb facilities!"

"You are blessed to say in such a beautiful place, the Baden Valley is awesome with the kopjes and mountains.  The vineyards and iceberg rose gardens of this farm are stunning. 

The natural veld surrounding this cottage gives us a true feeling of being in the mystic Little Karoo. 

On Saturday morning we cycled to Town to join the locals and tourists at the morning Market.  Strolled around town and familiarised ourselves the the eateries.  Made good use of your self-catering facilities and made two tasty braais. 

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay @ Merlot  -  Echt gezellig!"
