Just for Two Cottage
Romantic 1 Bedroom Cottage, R980 per night, Bedding and towels provided.
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. 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 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.
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.
