"The cottage was extremely comfortable with a great well stocked kitchen, aircon, comfy bed and wonderful daily cleaning service. The staff were friendly, there when you needed them but otherwise unobtrusive. There is a great area for making a fire and the splash pool was wonderful! Close to town but on the edge so could enjoy a lovely view of the swartberg. The only reason not to recommend it would be that I don't want it all booked up next time I want to stay!!"


"Amazing stay!"

"Paradise in The Karoo"

(South Africa) Liezll Fox | 30 December 2016

"A piece of paradise. Definately worth to stay over"


"4 to a room"

(South Africa) Andrea Exley | 27 December 2016

"We love Karoo view cottages, however this was our second time staying there and our kids are now big teenagers.

We found that sharing a room with them not to be practical as the space was rather cramped."

(South Africa) steve Murray | 4 January 2016

"Great attention to detail, everything provided that one could wish for. Beyond their control was the wind that howled through the night. We were looking for an overnight stop and it was ideal."

"Such a surprise to have so much attention to detail and great service in the middle of the Karoo. Wonderfully appointed cottage with aircon and fully equipped kitchen. The extra treats of fresh milk and cereal and juice were most appreciated. The town on Prince Albert is a must see in the Karoo and we most definitely will be back. I can highly recommend this accommodation as a must stay for families and you will have everything you need. Do have a dip in the plunge pool at the Boma and keep your camera handy as the sunsets are spectacular !"


"Stay over "

(South Africa) Ansa Swart | 5 January 2015

"Fantastic experience which we will recommend to anyone."


"High class"

(South Africa) Pierre Potgieter | 25 August 2014

"Well designed and built. They have thought of everything and supplied all you may need and more. There was a hot water issue that we brought to their attention so that should be dealt with."


"COMFORT WITH A DIFFERENCE"

(South Africa) Kareen Cromhout | 11 August 2014

"Beautifully located with a view of the town, the boma is unique, the cottage is cosy, the indigenous garden attracts birds, the hosts are friendly, and of course the fireplace adds that something extra. We will be back."


"Amazing piece of the Karoo"

(South Africa) Liezel thompson | 17 June 2014

"Awesome cottages. Everything you can ever think of was in the cottage and all comfort was ensured by little things like bathroom heaters, a light at your dressing table and so much more. We will definitely be back."

"Great stay"

(South Africa) Alwine Pretorius | 18 November 2013

"As so many other reviewers have said: the owners have thought of everything to make the stay as pleasurable as possible. A lot of forethought and planning has gone into this guesthouse. It is self catering, but fresh milk, fruit juice, muesli, rusks, cereals etc awaits one at arrival. Lovely olive based toiletries in the bathroom. We shall definitively recommend it to family and friends."


"Peace and quiet"

(South Africa) Irene Wright | 9 November 2013

"Prince Albert is in the middle of nowhere really and the Cottages are on the edge of town. If it's peace and quiet you want then this is the place to be. Four of us in two adjoining massive rooms well laid out with a pleasant touch of individuality. Perfect place to stay if you want to wander around..."

Four of us in two adjoining massive rooms well laid out with a pleasant touch of individuality. Perfect place to stay if you want to wander around the mountains or for stopping off after crossing the magnificent Swartenberg pass. "

They are in the heart of Prince Albert itself and you can walk to a very good selection of restaurants.
I really wish Richard and JuJu the very best of luck with their venture, they deserve it and we would certainly like to return for another stay next year if we can manage it. You cannot fail to unwind and feel refreshed after staying at Karoo View Cottages. Great value for money.

"My stay at Karoo View Cottages was such a delight! This is truly the first guest house I have come across that lacked nothing. Every aspect/element of it was well-thought through and the daily supply of local dairy products was quite the treat. The luxuries they have in place are well balanced with the natural scenery so that the one does not overshadow the other. Julie and Richard are warm-hearted people and their cottages resonates it. After a tough year I was able to find some peace and wind down. I could not have made a better choice - highly satisfied!"

"I was pretty sure I was going to love this place just based on the photos, but then there were so many additional lovely perks, such as the welcome gifts in our room, the amazing green house where we could pick delicious arugula (rocket) and other veggies, the well-stocked kitchen with milk straight from the dairy down the road, and of course, our engaging hosts, Julie and Michael, who have so many stories to share. Sitting on the porch, looking out over the nature reserve across the road, is so peaceful. We saw amazing stars at night, sun birds flitting in front of us all day long, an incredible rainbow after a storm one day, and Prince Albert itself is such an amazing community with good restaurants, nearby olive oil farms and vineyards, art galleries you would expect to find in a large city, and a dairy that makes sophisticated cheeses. Put Prince Albert on your South African itinerary and stay at Karoo View Cottages, and you will have made a great travel decision. "
