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.

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. 🙂
We absolutely loved our stay at the cottage! It would be good to advertise that there are awesome little pools along the way to the waterfall so that those with little ones realize that it’s not necessary to go all the way to the waterfall pools. We had such a gorgeous time! And also really enjoyed the thunderstorm on our last night – we even sat outside together and my 2.5 son loved it! I hope we get back to visit again and maybe bring some friends along too. Thank you, I could feel that lots of energy and love has been invested into the farm. Willem and Marta were also great.
Firstly I have to say that your website, communication process and follow-up is excellent. We had such a good time at Just for Two Cottage. It was exactly what we needed – and the type of accommodation and location that we adore. We managed to relax, walk and mountain bike and take a great ride home through the Nature Reserve yesterday on our way back home. Willem was excellent – a real asset [but I guess that you have heard that a few times before]. We will definitely return. It is such a stunning spot and lots to explore and do in the surrounding area.
