Budget Getaways Review

Lying just off the N1 and only 10km from the pleasures of Matjiesfontein, Keurkloof is a massive Karoo farm offering a self-catering weekend at its soul-soothing best.

A charming cottage, refurbished and decorated with a perfectionist's eye, is provided to this end.

Besides a load of personal touches you can anticipate the following: cool cement floors and lime-washed ceilings, classic Cape furniture (including a large Oregon dining table) and original paintings, choice linen and thick towels, beautiful brass fittings in the bathroom and a neat country kitchen with new appliances.

Modern convenience comes courtesy of eco-friendly solar lights, a gas stove, fridge and hot water for the Victorian bath and shower, while the fireplace keeps the cottage warm in winter.

Stepping into the Karoo light, the generous lavender-fringed stoep has a built-in braai, plenty of shade and views to eternity and back.

For activity… Experience the vast canvas of the Karoo sky and the absolute silence; savour the Karoo’s unique scents; keep an eye out for small game and a surprising variety of birds; bury yourself in Olive Schreiner's, The Story of an African Farm; swim in the farm dam; take long walks across the veld; toast the flame-orange sunsets; pop in to Matjiesfontein for caffeine and culture... Now tell us there’s nothing to do in the Karoo!

Oh...and if that roadtrip up the N1 sounds like too much to handle, there's a private airstrip on the farm, so you could always just fly in!

No two ways about it: Keurkloof is a gem.

"Keurkloof cottage is set in an idyllic Karoo setting - a haven of tranquility and peace with very high levels of comfort. A real piece of heaven on earth."

"We will be back, the setting of Keurkloof is just out of this world. We had a lovely stay!"

"What an awesome weekend in a perfect spot. Cannot wait to get back there. Everything thought of."

"The cottage is beautifully furnished, amazing attention to detail and so much consideration has been made to make ones stay very comfortable indeed. The landscape is beautiful, quiet and bucks, rabbits and birds can be seen. After being on the road for such a while, this stay was definitely the most relaxing. We loved it here and would recommend it to anyone without a second thought."
