Budget Getaways Review
Slapbang in the heart of Darling, Marigold Villa is a neat and well-appointed abode tucked into a gorgeous garden.
Spacious, beautifully furnished, and a homely vibe to boot, this is a top-drawer getaway where a group of friends (sorry, no kids under 12) can delve into some serious chill time.
Sleeping a total eight guests, Marigold has four ensuite bedrooms decked in percale linen, quality towels and comfy duvets.
Drilling into the detail, Suite one is twin-bed room with bath and outside shower; Suite two has a Queen bed and shower; Suite three is a garden cottage with Queen bed and shower, while Suite four takes the form of a double with shower.
There’s also a a loft room with additional beds, if really required.
Living-wise, you’ve got a spacious lounge area with comfy couches, flatscreen and DSTV (Bring own decoder and card).
The kitchen is fully equipped (dishwasher included) and forms the dining area as well, with a large dining table and wood-burning fireplace to up the country feel.
Outdoors you can catch the Darling sun on the patio, where there’s also a covered braai area (wood included) and a swimming pool.
The social centre is a short amble away, allowing you to hang up the car keys for the full duration. On this note, there’s secure off-street parking for three cars.
Plush living in the village hub, Marigold gets our nod.

"Five stars all the way. We had an amazing relaxing time at the Villa. It is so spacious and everything you could possible need is provided... super braai room, swimming pool, etc. We loved the outside shower and the furry girls had a great time running around the large garden. We definitely will be back!"

"I had a lovely stay. The accommodation is comfortable and well equipped with lovely outdoor braai facilities. I will definitely be back every year during the Darling Wild Flower Show or when I need a breakaway."

"The villa was by far one of the best places I've been to in South Africa. If you plan on spending the night in Darling this is the place to stay. Looking forward to our next visit."
