My husband and I needed a break from city life and booked at Houtbosdorp. What a true and unique experience. We absolutely enjoyed the tranquil and beautiful surroundings. The log cabins are clean and spacious. We were amazed by all the birds and even had a baboon visiting from a distance. If you need a break, book at Houtbosdorp! You will be pleasantly surprised. Thank you Brenda and Thomas for your hospitality and for this unique experience.

No stove or 2 plate. Toilets and shower are outside no one told us that. Directions not clear.

Good day, My wife & I had the absolute pleasure of staying at Houtbosdorp, for, unfortunately, only 1 night ! However, we found the facilities to be 1st class & would have no qualms in recommending Houtbosdorp as a most relaxing destination! Being there was "food for the soul" ! Thank you for an excellent weekend!

The view was beautifull, into the bush with no noise from the city. It was relaxing. We had al the necessary equipment in our unit. It was very clean. Brenda was also friendly and helpfull when we need another fan. Th toilet and showers was unique because it was on the outside of the units, but also very clean. I enjoyed my stay and would go back again.

The room, bathrooms and linen was clean and presentable. Fridge was functional, and had a working fan. Owner explained the safety rules before check-in. We had a pleasant experience, will recommend this place to our friends, and we hope to visit Houtbosdorp in the near future. Thank you so much Brenda for your hospitality. Regards, Joy
