Gert Boom at Papkuilsfontein

Gert Boom has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, both with showers only, one of which is part of the double bedroom. The other bedroom is twin bedded and a further two single beds in the living room provide sleeping accommodation for families or larger groups of friends. Comfortable chairs and sofa are next to the hearth, so welcome on cold winter evenings, and its fireplace doubles as an indoor braai. The kitchen is fully equipped for self-catering, with four-burner hob, oven and fridge all gas-powered. Many guests, though, prefer to book dinner which is delivered to the cottage. Breakfast is only served at the converted farm kitchen at the main homestead. utdoors there is patio and braai area, a hammock is suspended between two huge gum trees and there is the option in summer of a refreshing swim in the farm-style reservoir pool about 100m from the cottage. For the more energetic there are extensive mountain bike trails and bikes for hire, and wonderful walking opportunities to the dramatic canyon and surrounds. There is a farm jeep track to the canyon too.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Why do I have to pay a deposit?

    This is a sign of good faith. Properties hold rooms for you, which they could sell to someone else, so if you don't turn up, they lose revenue. By paying a deposit of 50% (industry standard) you show the property that you are intending to arrive and they will accordingly turn others away.

    Can I pay the deposit at month end?

    That depends on the property. Many have real time booking calendars, allowing people to book instantly online. If that's the case, bookings are first-come-first-book, and no rooms will be held provisionally unless specifically arranged. Send a request and ask for a specific payment date and they'll get back to you.

    What is 3D Secure?

    This is a security layer which checks that the person making the payment is the authorised cardholder by way of a one-time pin delivered by SMS or a secret code, ensuring the safety of your card.

    3D secure is a legislated prerequisite for all online purchases in South Africa.
