Très belle maison décorée avec goût, très bien équipée (mais pas de wifi, idéal pour "débrancher" et profiter de la nature autour et des randonnées ! Propreté impeccable, excellente literie, calme absolu et très bien accueillis par Hanneré ! On recommande !

Das Haus von Hanneré ist ein Traum. Wir haben die geschmackvolle Ausstattung des Hauses, die Nähe zur Natur und die vielen unterschiedlichen Aussenbereiche ( Terrasse mit Weitblick, Terrasse mit Pool, Terrasse mit Grillplatz und Tisch unter dem Baum) sehr genossen. Es ist ein toller Ort um seine Seele baumeln zu lassen. Ablenkungen gibt es nicht: kein Wifi, kein Telefon, kein Restaurant oder Café um die Ecke. Es war toll, die pure Magie dieses Ortes erleben zu dürfen.

Hanneré's house is a gem. Purely and simply. You want to rediscover the meaning of quiet, peaceful as well as the words nature, calm, serenity? Need a break from the city? Need a break from people? This place is for you. The house, located in a valley, is indeed off the grid. In about all the way one could picture it. Yet it offers all the comfort one could wish for. The place offers the most beautiful scenery, and this directly from your bed. The house features many bay windows which allow you to feel within the nature from almost anyplace and lets a lot of light come in. At night, you could use electricity to light up the place, but lets face it, you are going to light up candles and the chimney because its so much nicer. The kitchen, using gas, is very well equipped with all you need to cook any meal you'd like. And for those who would like to braai, there is of course a braai place just outside. The beds are also very comfortable and again, from it you can admire the beauty of the valley during the day, and the stars in the sky at night. Let's not forget the glorious puff to just place in front of one of the many large windows, and just sit there and stare outside. At night, you'll have the sky and its stars to feed your eyes. It is just gorgeous and marvelous. My wife and I are looking forward to come again.

This place is just stunning! You are in the middle of the bush but with a lot of comfort. We loved watching the birds (and baboons) from our bed and had lots of relaxing hours at the pool. The kitchen is perfectly equiped so there's no need to go to civilisation for dinner.

Even though the descriptions and photographs are very accurate 'Bush House' still managed to surpass our expectations. We stayed for eight nights and became more and more 'at home' with every day. Everything, absolutely everything, you could possibly need to fully enjoy our time was provided for. But the charming little touches, the attention to detail, the greeting we received, the space we were given while at the same time the questions we had had being answered immediately, made it clear how welcome we were and how cared for the house is. Then there is the location. Its is beautiful. To sit in those big chairs or out on the terrace, watching the sun go down (while enjoying a glass of wine from the region) and to see no other man made light at all and an amazing sky full of stars is wonderful. Then to wake up and watch it from bed through the huge windows was equally pleasing. Dropping into the plunge pull after a hard days exploring was fantastic, as was being various degrees of submerged to read. I really could give countless examples of why the place is very special. We should say also that though we felt very secluded, we also felt very safe. It really is a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle to the quite and calm, but without having sacrificing comfort, convenience or style at all. It was perfect and we do plan to be back at some time in the future. Thank you Hanneré.

Among all the many holiday homes we stayed at in the past years Bush House stands out as a true gem. It’s as beautiful as pictures suggest. Every little details has been carefully thought through. Equipment leaves nothing to be desired - from freezer bags to seasonings and insect repellent to braai wood. We spend a couple of hot summer days by the plunge pool, watching birds, dozing. Come late afternoon, we threw open all blinds and shutters to let the balmy breeze wake the house and reveal amazing views of the kloof and the mountains beyond. Bliss!

A little slice of heaven. The house couldn’t be more beautifully and sumptuously designed with every little detail taken care of. And the views... the views!! To die for. If you’re reading this and wondering if it’s the place for you - BOOK! You won’t regret it.

In 7 years of using AirBnB, all over the world, Bush House ranks as one of the very best AirBnB experiences that we've ever had. I would recommend Bush House to anyone looking for an off-the-grid getaway in real comfort - it is thoughtfully-designed and -appointed, and unbelievably relaxing. We genuinely could not find fault with it. Our only regret is not staying longer, but we will *definitely* be back.

This is by far, one of our favourite places that we have ever stayed at. The location is perfect, not too far to get to, yet very private. There are great views from all around the house. And quiet - so peaceful and quiet. We also recommend the hike - it takes you to the top of the kloof and provides more stunning views. We had a great weekend away with a couple of friends. Everything we needed was available: comfortable clean linen and towels, comfortable beds. If you enjoy cooking then the kitchen has everything you could possibly need as well as an outdoor braai. A wide variety of board games provided hours of entertainment. Hanneré was an amazing host who went above and beyond - we had a spot of car trouble and she graciously helped us out! Can't wait to go back!

Stop vacillating and book! You won't regret it. Doornkloof is such a special getaway. It's everything a retreat should be - and more. The space is incredibly comfortable and tranquil. The kitchen is unbelievably well equipped with quality utensils. Everything has been thought of, and more! The little touches make a huge difference - right down to towels and bedding provided specifically for our baby! Thank you Hanneré. We'll most certainly be back.

"...not to be missed. The property is homely and beautifully furnished with great sensitivity to the environment. Magnificent views from every window, wonderful doors that open out to nature, the most comfortable beds, spotlessly clean .. the list goes on and on! We loved that there was no wifi and cell reception .. a real haven from our city lives."

This is a wonderful and luxurious spot in a very secluded valley. It has everything that you could possible need. It is also very close to the Rooiberg Conservancy MTB trails. Hanneré was a great host, organising MTB permits before we arrived and even a cold bottle of bubbly! Highly recommended.

Hanneré's bush house was amazing! Perfect for a romantic weekend away! It was everything we expected and more. Attention to detail was top notch and the apartment has everything you could possibly need for a weekend of cooking, relaxing and connecting with nature. We will definitely be back!

A wonderfully secluded traditional homestead modernly upgraded to accommodate anyone's needs! Stunning outlook and super comfortable we would have stayed longer if we could! We will return definitely.
