This romantic getaway is situated where two valleys meet, embraced by deep red cliffs and touched by morning sunlight. The cottage was built in the late 1800s, and was the welcome “refuge” for Italian prisoners of war in the early 1940s. Its delicious charm lies in its simplicity – a bedroom, kitchen and bathroom built of stone and clay.
The Just-for-Two has been delicately renovated with the utmost respect for the beauty of the simple life and the warmth and history of the original earthy building materials. The cottage is fully equipped with gas appliances and cooking equipment, with a braai area outside. There is no power, with paraffin lamps for night light. The bath and shower are open to the sky, providing an unforgettable experience under the stars. The flush toilet is strategically placed apart to give you a beautiful view up the kloof. The cottage is also located within three quarters of an hour’s walk from magnificent bushmen paintings, and a ten minute walk from the Labyrinth. This remains our favourite place for romantic getaways, with wide open spaces, red cliffs, endless beauty and a warm and cosy nest at the end of the day. Please note that as we are in a World Heritage Site, we are not able to accommodate pets. Check in is anytime from 2pm onwards, and check out by 10am. Guests are welcome to arrive earlier and leave later if you are wanting to do walks, however please ensure you are out of your accommodation so that our team can start cleaning for the next guests. Please note this is unserviced accommodation, though for stays of four days or more we will organise to have the farmhouse cleaned and new linen and towels provided.

We had a great time at Just for Two Cottage! We had no idea what to expect, and were pleasantly surprised. We are already planning our next visit!
We had a lovely stay at ‘Just for two’. It really is a gem of a place. We loved everything about the cottage and wouldn’t change anything.
We had a wonderful time, unfortunately only stayed a day, we are definately planning a return visit.
It was an amazing, relaxing and beautiful place to chill.
We had a very good stay in the Just for Two cottage. We made the most delicious meals in the oven – a Pork Belly of note ;-). And we used the bonfire area with its endless scenery as well. The bathroom is really something different, we had lovely relaxing baths and showers with a fantastic view! Willem told us how to look for the packed stones and off we went on our walk to the waterfall. It was a lovely, and at times, challenging walk but with ‘a pot of gold at the end’!! we swam in the ice cold water in the gorge. It was something truly spectacular and memorable!!! Those mountains are breathtaking !
The farm and the unit were very clean and pretty! I love the special touches in the cottage like the heart patterned out on the bedroom floor and the ever so neatly packed peach-pip stoep. I would (and already have) recommend Just for Two to anybody and will definitely HAVE to return to the Baviaanskloof !!!!
We enjoyed the stay at Just for Two and found it very comfortable and relaxing. The surrounding mountains were stunning and made for a magnificent backdrop to an enjoyable braai, which was well laid out and had sufficient wood supplied. The gas hot water geyser was great and supplied adequate hot water for the kitchen and the shower. The bed was comfortable and we had everything that we needed, including tissues and body lotion. The drive to the cottage down the narrow kloof was spectacular.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Just for Two Cottage. It was the perfect setting for the “recharging of our batteries”. Enjoyed the walks as well as the labyrinth – each time we walked the labyrinth we spotted a pair of Verreaux’s Eagles soaring above the surrounding cliffs.
Willem was most helpful in showing us around the cottage and providing info on the walks.
We drove through the Baviaanskloof which we found to be most spectacular – the road in the Wilderness Section is not in a very good condition and was somewhat challenging in parts but the Jimny did us proud.
We would love to come back for another visit.
