"This is by far one of my favourite places in the whole Western Cape. Charm, character, peace and quiet, delightful hosts, and lovely gardens and orange groves. Splendid all year round - fires in the winter, pool lounging in the summer."

"What a lovely surprise to find people who treat our heritage with tlc and then share it with us. We should have stayed longer. Relaxing after a long trip from Namibia, at its best."

"We stayed in this gorgeous cottage last weekend. Its excellent value for money and was a really comfortable stay. The swimming pool is just divine! The Kloof is absolutely stunning, especially in the early mornings with the most wonderful aromatic orange blossom smell wherever you go. Kirstin and Marc have decorated the cottage beautifully and its a real home from home! I would say Kapteinskloof is one of the Cape's best secrets!"
"Warm and beautiful"

"We arrived rather late but the cottage was lit up, with a note on the door to welcome us. We made a fire in the wood fire oven which warmed up the cottage, and had a hot relaxing bath after a long day of travelling. The bedroom and decor was beautiful- a real old dutch style cottage. Unfortunately we had to leave early in the morning and didn't have time to explore the farm, but the cottage itself was a welcome, warm and friendly rest. Rusks and filter coffee in the morning were fantastic!"

"Highly recommended! Enjoyed the quiet and tranquility of the setting. The herb garden is a big thumbs up, as well as the greater garden with the beautiful scent of lavender and roses.The fire place with the Dover stove was a winner, the decor is simple but stylish. Our dogs enjoyed it as much as we did.Loved the fact that one can zoom in on each other and not be interrupted by cell phones, TV or radio!Picking lemons and oranges was most enjoyable!"
"Perfect place for a peaceful escape"

"Kapteinskloof was a wonderful surprise! We were told to help ourselves to the oranges and lemons in the garden, and also the huge herb &amp; veg garden. The house is kitted out beautifully, even with a blender (to make fresh orange juice), while keeping a real feel of early 1900's. It is pet friendly and we had long walks on the quiet dirt roads with our big boerboel pup, played with the friendly resident dogs, and played hide-and-seek in the huge yard. The stars at night was a real treat. We had just the best time there!"
