Beautiful surroundings. Peaceful and quiet. A great place to recharge and relax. The owners and staff are very friendly. I will definitely be visiting again.

A lovely relaxing 4 night stay in spacious well build and situated cottages. Jenny and Allan are great hosts. Just the place to go for a break from life and a bit of time in nature. Highly recommended

Staying at thirsty Falls, or staying with Jenny and Alan was so relaxing. the cottages have everything you need to cook, relax, sleep comfortable. but the great asset is the view, the birds, the beautiful surroundings, and the profound calm and peace. i read 3 books in 4 days, slept, took a luxurious bath, and came out completely rested. Jenny and Alan go above and beyond to make you feel comfortable. Jenny checked on me daily, and took time to sit down and chat together. they even helped me to sort my transport out, as i didn't have my own car and couldn't rent one. this was a perfect relax holiday! thanks!

What an amazing place to enjoy an amazing break from the hustle and bustle!! Spectacular scenery. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Lavender unit was in mint condition - one of the cleanest places we have visited in a looooong time. The family enjoyed mountain bike excursions from the establishment to the main road. We had an amazing time at an awesome venue. The landlords went out of their way to assist a sick friend's spouse from Switzerland, even taking her husband to hospital and her to hospital to visit him. Making space for her when they were fully booked. Exemplary. Extraordinary. Words fail to express our appreciation.

We had a really lovely stay here from the 15th to the 18th of July 2016, the place is so peaceful and the spa bath is just what you need after a long hard day of doing good nothing !! And the fireplace was lovely and cosy, we will definitely be back there soon

What a nice and relaxing place to get away for the weekend. It's out of the City and in the Magalies mountains. Nothing fancy but the fireplace is wonderful and the unit has everything you might need for self-catering. The units are extremely private and we never once felt like we even had neighbours. Jenny, the owner was an amazing host and willing to help with anything we could have needed.

I would suggest this guest farm to all city dwellers. It's close enough to break away for the weekend but yet far away from the city buzz. Waking up every morning in our private secluded unit to the beautiful bird sounds was absolute bliss. The view from our private balcony was amazing. The units are very neat and fully equipped for self-catering, no need to bring any utensils or tableware. And the fireplace is perfect for those cold winter evenings.
