The Farmhouse

Fabulous indeed! Johan and Linda are the kindest hosts and went above and beyond to make our stay unforgettable. The old farmhouse has so much character and charm, and Linda decorated it beautifully! Everything was very well maintained, clean and comfortable. The farm has a wonderful location – close enough to Wilderness and everything the Garden Route has to offer, yet abounding in peacefulness and tranquility among breathtaking scenery. Rich in history this farmhouse offers a truly unique experience!

The Farmhouse

Our stay at the farmhouse was wonderful. The place was very well furnish and fully equipped with everything you will need in a home stay. Surroundings was quiet and refreshing, perfect for large families and friends coming together for the great outdoors. We enjoyed the space, privacy and many quiet evenings over home cooked meals / BBQs. Linda was wonderful in orientating us, driving instructions were easy to follow and we were well placed as mid point to many points of interest in Knysna and Plettenberg Bay.

The Farmhouse

Libertas Farmhouse is utterly charming. Linda has decorated it beautifully and it offers every comfort. We had a very happy few days there and enjoyed the peace and quiet of the area.

The Dairy

We loved staying at The Dairy, Linda is very welcoming and ready to answer any question. The location was just perfect, close to the action but away from the buzz. It’s an ideal place for kids, our 5 year old son loved it. If you are a mountain biker, you won’t be disappointed with the rides out of the Dairy! We definitely stay there again.

The Dairy

The Dairy was a wonderful place to stay and Linda was an incredible host. The house was beautifully designed to retain the character of the original space was creating a contemporary and comfortable setting. We would highly recommend anyone to stay here multiple nights…we didn’t want to leave!

The Dairy

he Dairy is a lovely gem not far from Wilderness on the Garden Route. It’s close to most attractions in the area but still removed from the crowds, just the way we wanted it and expected it to be. The cottage is super charming, and tastefully decorated just like the pictures. Linda has done an excellent job thinking of every little detail in the house. We particularly loved the little wood stove by the kitchen area that helped to keep us warm in the evenings as it was quite cold outside.
