What a wonderful off-the-grid experience in a stunning setting. We did it as part of a mother and daughter road trip and we loved every moment of the beauty, peace and quite. The cabin is well equipped, crisp and clean. And to wake up with the sunrise through the big window at the foot of the bed is a very special touch.
Absolutely amazing! Cabin situated away from the busy world to just relax and unwind. The hosts are absolutely amazing as well! I would highly recommend this place just to "escape from the real world".
We stumbled across this little gem for a weekend getaway . Tulbagh has so much to offer - great food, great wine and beautiful views. The cabin is perfectly situated for all of the above mentioned, and the hot tub is such a bonus!
