Guest Comment:
Kristel - "thank you, for us to be able to use your beautiful cottage for a week in "paradise". I was an amazing holiday in the mountains with the snow, the beautiful cottage, the view and we even went for the canopy tour. Don't laugh but I even put my make up on, on the "stoep" so that I do not miss out on the view."
