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 want 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 un-serviced accommodation, though for stays of four days or more we can organise to have the cottage cleaned and new linen and towels provided. Please make sure that you arrange this when you make your booking and before your arrival.

We had the absolute best time in Baviaanskloof!
The Just for Two Cottage is so cute and cozy and the surrounds too beautiful for words.
We walked up to the waterfall and braved the freezing cold pools to get all the way to the top. It was so worth the cold!
The silence and break from phone signal was fabulous and well needed.
We have nothing to say but thank you! Willem is a sweetheart and everything was perfectly clean and spotless. Also loved how even the sand outside was raked like a zen garden.
We will definitely be back soon for a longer stay.
We have fallen in love with the cute historic cottage with the outdoor toilet and open-air bathroom. It was a very different experience and a lot of fun.
The hiking through fynbos and interesting geological formations was stunning. I recommend the two short swims and climb up to the Cedar Falls.
It is so beautiful and must be seen to be appreciated. The water is cold so a wetsuit is advisable.
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 !!!!
