R800 nightly for the rondawel.
Budget Getaways Review
Surrounded by indigenous trees and birdsong, a tranquil lily pond to the front and a pretty view onto the valley, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better spot to get away from it all.
It gets even better, though. The entire smallholding is smothered in swathes of pristine fynbos, with hiking trails and farm strolls high on the activity agenda.
To satisfy any urban craving, the quirky named village of Baardskeerdersbos is five kays down the drag, while Gansbaai and Stanford are a short drive away - 24km and 42km, respectively.
Not yet convinced? In that case, let's take a closer look.
The rondawel is elegantly furnished with simple country pieces; whitewashed walls and timber floors add to the charm.
A Queen bed graces the main bedroom - an ensuite bathroom (shower only) leads off from here. The front door opens to a patio with outlook onto the pond.
Separate from your sleeping quarters is a fully equipped kitchen, with gas stove and cozy dining area for two. There’s a braai area outside and timber deck.
The unit is powered by gas and solar - thankfully there's not a TV in sight.
At R800 nightly it's not the cheapest of Budget Getaway options, but in our book still worth the spend. You be the judge.
A combo of simple cosy charm and picturesque setting, this little rondawel is the kind of spot where the rest of the world no longer really doesn’t matters… Start packing.
"Tierfontein Rondawel was beautiful and it was a great weekend away. The actual setting is so secluded and it was beautiful to hear the birds and enjoy the views. I would highly recommend this location for couples wanting to get away for a quiet weekend of relaxation."

"My boyfriend and I needed to find ourselves. With nature all around, walks, fresh air or just sitting on the stoep and admiring the view, braaiing outside (loved the separate kitchen) staying in the spacious rondavel with such a beautiful interior, the shower with the trees and leaves in view - we found ourselves."
