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.

Thank you, Shivani (who became my fiancée at Just for Two) and I had a most enjoyable stay in the Baviaanskloof. I’ve previously only charged past like a maniac, doing the Trans-Baviaans MTB race and have always hoped to be able to enjoy a peaceful visit to this beautiful part of our country.
The weather was rather cold, so we didn’t consider swimming through the river to go all the way up the kloof, but even our limited walk to the top of a little rise and back was most enjoyable.
Hopefully I’ll be back there again someday.
Many thanks, we have just returned home after a great trip. Your Just for Two Cottage was stunning and we really enjoyed the location and “quaintness” of the cottage. Pity it is so far from Cape Town otherwise we would be regulars! Would still like to come and spend more than one night in the future.
We had a wonderful stay at Just for Two, it was really very special. We are about to have our first child in July and our trip was a last getaway as just the two of us (or two and a half really!). We particularly enjoyed our baths under the stars and the loo with the view! I think you have done the cottage beautifully, just the right mix of simplicity and comfort. I’ve already recommended your place to several friends and relatives.
The experience at the Just for Two cottage in the Baviaanskloof was something that my wife and I would never forget. The hospitality of the people and the food were great. If the time is right, we would like to visit again. We already ‘advertised’ this adorable cottage and the scenery to family and friends who are now also eager to go there and experience themselves.
Thank you, we had a wonderful stay and loved every minute of it. The cottage was perfect and the setting ‘to die for’. We walked to the waterfall (or nearly) as we had to swim to get through the other side of the deep kloof then couldn’t face the walk to the end to see the falls in bare feet and swimming costumes – too hot and stones too sharp! But we loved it all and saw so much wildlife.
We absolutely loved our stay at the Just for Two Cottage. We’ve stayed in some amazing places, but we have to say that Just for Two was the best place we’ve ever visited. Everything was just so thoughtfully laid out and it had the necessary luxuries, but the ideal level of simplicity and we still felt like we were on an adventure. The views from the cottage are truly spectacular! We loved making a fire and braaing at night, LOVED the hike up to the falls – swimming in the crystal clear pools and marvelling at the beauty of the kloof. We loved bathing under the stars and chilling in the somehow amazingly cool cottage during the hot afternoons – almost felt like you were stepping into aircon without the carbon footprint! 🙂
We truly had a wonderful, romantic time and loved the feeling of isolation – felt like we were the only two people on the planet. 🙂
