Pietermaritzburg Vacation Rentals

Just booked in Pietermaritzburg

My place is close to University of KwaZulu-Natal N3 shopping centres , restaurants and dining. You’ll love my place because of the location, the people, and the neighborhood. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers.
  • Thanks Francois for a great stay! We loved that the room was separate from your main house, very private, and had everything we needed for our stay! Thanks for providing tea, coffee, milk and fruit juice. The kitchenette was great! Place was modern, and perfect for us as a couple from New York City. We had access to a remote control for the gated access, so we could come and go as we pleased. We will be back again!

  • The host family truly is warm and welcoming. Francois and his wife truly welcomed me and made me feel right at home. They clearly know the are well and thus were able to suggest places to visit or even try out. Despite being in the same yard as the family home the accommodation is very private and thus you never feel as if you are intruding. The room is very clean with 1 double bed, bathroom that has a shower and has a small kitchen; which has all the basic things you would need in your own home. Welcome treats are also provided upon arrival . This was really worth the price and was in a great location as it was central to all the places in needed to be at during my stay.

    Kholofelo2017-05-14T00:00:00Z
  • I had a pleasant stay and recommend Francois's place to all.

    Morenike2017-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • I would recommend Francois' place to anyone visiting Pietermaritzburg. Very conveniently situated and good value for money. The self catering option is an added bonus.

    Our comfortable thatched cottage is set in an enormous, established garden within a beautiful Security Estate. This is a gardener's retreat! Listen to the birds sing, explore the garden spaces and soak up the peacefulness found in this place. We have 3 cottages privately positioned in the garden : perfect for family reunions or wedding parties.
    Our secret garden cottage is peaceful, comfortable and private. Access from the highway is quick and easy and once you are here, you will feel like you are miles away from the world we live in. This makes it a really convenient and rejuvenating base from which to explore the Midlands. The covered verandah overlooks the expansive garden : the perfect place to relax and have your coffee while enjoying the dawn of a new day. Inside the cottage the space feels cosy and spacious with the high thatched roof wrapping around you. The flow between all the open plan spaces is well thought through, giving a sense of great ease. You will love to watch the stars twinkle at night from this little haven.
    Howick is well known for its absolutely beautiful weather, its gentle scenery and more recently its become famous for its very popular lunch destination, The Farmers Daughter at Yard 41 ! The setting is awesome, it overlooks the spectacular Falls gorge and the architecture is getting rave reviews. What a great new place to savour, with a trendy gift and decor shop, a world class nursery, a hip cycling shop and a busy hair salon to add to the vibe. This is a friendly part of the world! There is lots to do ! The Midlands Meander is popular for all sorts of reasons : The world famous Mandela Monument is close by, Midmar dam is across the road, Steampunk is within easy reach. ( Best coffee in town ) Piggly Wiggly is a great place for a family outing and hosts the popular weekly Park Run on a Saturday at 8am. Children love the putt putt course, the train ride and dipping candles. The Karkloof Market on a Saturday morning also is a great way to start the day. Cycling routes abound in the area.This is cycling heaven! The Karkloof Canopy tour is an exciting experience. And if you enjoy a good hike, the Howick Falls Gorge Walk gives you a really rewarding experience at the foot of the mighty waterfall. The Wessa Umgeni Nature Reserve is right on our doorstep. The zebras are as tame as ever you might imagine! You may even like to volunteer some time looking after wild animals at Freeme... There is more than enough exploring to do in this well loved part of South Africa. Welcome to hospitable KZN. And remember... our sectet garden cottage has quick access onto the highway, which makes it the perfect stop-over and the perfect base ! We will look after you with good old fashioned hospitality standards!
  • Perfect and cosy spot for a romantic getaway. Situated in beautiful gardens with abundant bird life and the cutest dogs. Would recommend and would definitely stay again.

  • A comfortable and well appointed rondavel. It had everything we needed. Unfortunately, we arrived in late evening and had to leave early the next morning. We would have loved to have had a longer stay so that we could have enjoyed more of the peaceful ambiance.

    Peter2017-06-05T00:00:00Z

  • What a great find on Airbnb!! This is going to be our go to place every time we are in the Midlands. Ange and Wayne are amazing hosts and we had such an amazing, tranquil stay. If you are looking for great hosts, serene environment and a central place between The Meander and Pietermaritzburg then look no further!!!

    Rue2017-04-17T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at River Goose Cottage was honestly an unforgettable experience. Angela was incredibly accommodating, warm, welcoming and her suggestion to get food for the evening from The Cookhouse was nothing short of perfect. The cottage was comfortable, cosy and quaint and we immediately felt at home in their beautiful garden. The brownies were an extra touch that went down well. Thank you Angela and Wayne for such a wonderful first experience with Airbnb. Highly recommend staying here.

    Tseko2017-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • Angela's place is Howick's secret garden! River goose is a beautiful traditional style cottage tucked away in extensive gardens full of colour. Relaxation here is a given and Angela is the perfect host to this lovely area; she made us feel incredibly welcome, gave us some very helpful tips of the area and made sure we had everything we needed. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thanks Angela!!

    Our cottage is situated within in a beautiful 2 hectare country garden in River Goose Estate. We offer a secret country escape that is remarkably central with quick access to the N3. ( 8 minutes to Hilton, 5 minutes to Howick, 5 min to Midmar Dam, 10 min to the Capture Site ) The cottage is comfortable and definately suitable as a central base in the Midlands for those looking for longer stays.
    The cottage is completely self contained and feels like a proper little home with a kitchen, two very comfy armchairs and a beautiful dining table with four bustle back chairs. The cottage looks out over a generous lawn which is perfect for keeping children busy. The living area has two extra beds to ensure that the space is versatile. The sunset view through the tall trees looks out over a wide open field and there is a braai area should you wish to relax under the stars at suppertime or soak up the sun at lunchtime.
    Howick honestly has fabulous weather ! The Midlands Meander is on our doorstep. The little village of Howick is becoming quite charming
  • Angela is very bubbly and welcoming, which makes the overall stay very pleasant and happy. She is great to talk and laugh with, and she's very accommodating. No request is too much for her to assist with. Her kind hospitality along with the cleanliness of the rooms make for a very enjoyable experience. The Gatehouse Cottage is like staying in your own warm little home. You actually don't want to leave. It's fully equipped with everything you could possibly need, and its perfect for a family to stay in as it has more than enough space to accommodate everyone! It's the perfect choice!

Safe, off-street parking and gated entry to premises. Clean, comfy linen and spacious bathroom with shower and bath. Value exceeded the online presentation - really happy about this. Highly recommend this spot for a stay-over. Cleaning service available. And room cleaned to perfection. Apartment absolutely exceeded expectations.

It's a longish drive from the main Ave but tucked away nicely. There is noise from the highway but not distracting. The general cleanliness of the accommodation is average and cutlery & crockery may need a wipe down before use. Guests should supply their own cleaning materials, towels and toiletries. Overall, exactly as expected from the price and the pictures.

    Parking is way off-street. The property is next to the Botanical Gardens so despite being 5- 10 minutes from the city center one can feel as if one is in the country. We are 15 minutes (or within 5.5km) from many schools including Epworth, Maritzburg College and Girl's High, St Johns and Saint Charles College. My favorite restaurants in the neighborhood include Sagewood cafe, Essence, and Quincy's Cafe and Restaurant. Pizzology makes delicious artisan pizza and and delivers take aways. There is a lovely farmers market on Saturday mornings at the Botanical gardens where you can get good coffee and pancakes and a large variety of home grown produce.
  • This is for sure the most beautiful decorated Airbnb in hole South Africa! We absolutely enjoyed our stay with Sue and Mark in Pietermaritzburg. There was absolutely nothing more we could ask for! Fresh muffins, provided breakfast and a private access to the botanical garden. Make sure to do some day trips into the beautiful Midlands. Absolutely worth it! 100% recommend them and would love to come back any time! Thank you! :)

  • Sue's hospitality should be commended. The cottage is beautiful and well equipped. The setting (next to the botanical garden) makes it feel as if one is living in a forest. Tranquility at its best. We'll be back for sure!

  • We have just spent 4 nights self catering, as a couple with our 8 year old daughter. The self catering unit is beautifully designed, very well equipped and perfectly clean. The owners are very friendly and made our stay enjoyable. This is an excellent place to stay if you are looking for a high standard self catering accomodation, thank you Mark and Sue!

  • Quince cottage was exceptionally charming and cosy. It was a home away from home made so wonderfully by Mark and Sue who were amazing hosts. The rooms were perfectly set up for the cold front and there was a lovely variety of breakfast foods. I would definitely stay again and highly recommend this as a first choice when looking for accommodation in PMB

    Our place is close to the National Botanical Gardens and the city centre, and is ideal if you want privacy for business, to read or write, relax or simply to visit the city of Pietermaritzburg. It is quiet and secure and set in a lovely private garden. It has its own access and covered parking for two cars. Our place is good for couples, small families and business travelers. The ground floor is completely wheelchair accessible.
    Our place is a quirky conversion of an old stable; we live in the Victorian era 'Red Brick' Pietermaritzburg house next door. The 'main' bedroom is a loft above the lounge thus it is not totally private, whereas the downstairs bedroom and en-suite is totally shut off from the lounge and main public areas.
  • This space was a great stay very spacious and homey. There is enough parking and space outside for you to relax and stretch your legs and the host Debbie is super helpful, I highly recommend this stay.

    Tinahe2017-07-16T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, a whole house with garden at a price for 1 room. Helpful owners live next door. Enjoyed our stay.

    Charles2017-06-15T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely quaint little cottage with a pretty garden. There's free WiFi, Netflix, DVDs and books on offer. The couch is so soft and comfortable you could sleep there easily. The second bedroom is a loft, so if people in the loft step on the floor the noise can be heard quite loudly in the downstairs room. For this I would suggest either you use the loft or the room, making it a 3 sleeper, unless you don't mind the noise.

    Azima2017-09-25T00:00:00Z

  • Situated in a lovely, secure location. Close to the Saturday morning, market at the amazing botanical garden. A way from noise, really lovely location to find much rest, and much needed Zen. Loved Debbie, lovely hostess, and readily available to answer questions and provide suggestions. Thanks for a lovely stay.

    The private cottage has 2 single beds. The room has a desk and a wardrobe. The bathroom has a toilet, sink and bath. There is an airco and a heater. Free Wifi. There is a microwave which you can use. Simple breakfast (yogurt, muesli, fruit, toast). Note that it is not allowed to smoke in the cottage.
    The cottage is located in an upmarket, quiet area of Pietermaritzburg. Very easy access from the N3 coming from Johannesburg, but also only 10 minutes away from the N3 if you are coming from Durban. The Liberty Mall and Cascades Shopping centre are within 10 minutes reach, so is the city centre. Many mountainbike options available in the area.
  • Annette and her family made me feel welcome and at home. Clean and functional cottage, away from the main house. It is secure and in a beautiful neighborhood.

    Dirk2016-08-29T00:00:00Z

  • It's a lovely place to stay, but quite remote and not easily accessible without a car. The room and lodging is quiet and comfortable. However, it does seem to get drafty during winter. Annette was very gracious and seems a wonderful host.

    Dylan2017-08-19T00:00:00Z

The space is clean and comfortable in a lovely hilly and forested part of Pietermaritzburg. I will definitely be back in my next trip.

  • Annette and her family warmly welcomed us in their lovely home. The place is very secure and is located in a nice neighbourhood. The guesthouse was nice and clean and had a lot of privacy. We really appreciated that a light breakfast was included. All in all a nice place to stay with very kind hosts. We recommend this place to anyone!

    Our cottage is in a quiet Village just off the N3 and close to the famous Midlands Meander tourism route. Life Hilton Private Hospital are just two blocks away. We are 12 minutes from Pietermaritzburg or Howick with private boarding schools like Hilton College, Cowan House and St. Anne's on our doorstep. We cater to the exploring tourist, corporate client, and those visiting family or loved ones.
    The cottage is fully self contained with its own deck and barbecue area. We offer WiFi, DSTV and a laundry service at a nominal rate. The cottage is serviced daily. Guests are welcome to cool off in the communal pool.
    The neighbourhood is ideal for relaxing walks, close to a lovely shopping centre with restaurants, gym and small shops. Hilton is a quiet village with narrow, interesting lanes lined with dense indigenous bush, flowers and trees. Our local village has fabulous coffee shops and shops for browsing. On Saturday mornings our neighboring town Howick has a great farmers market where local home made delicacies/crafts are sold. Also a lovely place to enjoy a hearty South African breakfast.
  • Leone is a wonderful host! Our family of 3 (2 adults and an 8 year old child) had a very comfortable stay in the cottage. I would really recommend Leone's place - they make sure you have everything you need and more. A home away from home

    Onica2017-07-10T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage was exactly as advertised, a truly quaint and charming little self catering cottage that ticks all the boxes. Perfect location for people going to the Hilton/Mhs game at Hilton College. Thanks Leone, we will definitely be back!

    DConnor2017-05-07T00:00:00Z
  • Leone and her family were very warm and welcoming. Communication was excellent and nothing was too much trouble

    Jackie2017-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • This is truly a gem of a place. It really feels like my home away from home (this was my 3rd visit). The entire family are so hospitable and friendly.

    Daniel2017-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • My stay here was very last minute as my wife was unexpectedly hospitalized while visiting South Africa. Leone went well above the usual Airbnb hospitality and took great care to see that I was OK during the ordeal. The cottage is well equipped for the size and was perfect for me to stay in as well as when my wife was finally able to join me. I couldn't ask for a better experience.

    Terry2017-05-31T00:00:00Z
  • Leone is an unbelievably lovely person and the room is in a very convenient part of Hilton. Her family are very hospitable and I would definitely recommend it

    Our place is 12 kms from Pietermaritzburg just half a km off the road that goes from Pietermaritzburg to Richmond. You’ll love this cottage because of the superb view, the peace, the birds in the garden, and the big dogs enhancing security.
    The cottage is spacious and we have a big garden - guests are welcome to wander around and look for chameleons etc.
    We are close to town, but still with a country feel.
  • This place was even more than we asked for. We needed to rest our heads we got so much more. From the fresh eggs and baked rolls waiting for us. It was so so lovely. I could have escaped here for 5 days.

    Tessa2017-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful friendly hosts and dogs. Beautiful big living space and a view to die for.

    Carolyn2016-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • The view driving onto the premises is spectacular! Sandra was most welcoming, and so we're her three gorgeous dogs! They just loved our children, even our 1 year old enjoyed playing with the friendly rottweiler. The cottage was gorgeous and much more than what we expected. It was peaceful and so relaxing. Sandra was very hospitable and even went to the trouble of baking fresh rolls for us. Wish we didn't have to leave. Will definitely book here again.

    Matthys2016-12-11T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing hosts and a huge cottage. The breakfast is lovely and everything is clean and comfortable. The perfect Place to relax and get your stuff ordered, if you're on a longer trip. The kitchen has all you need and the view is awesome, like their 3 dogs. :-)

    Steffi2017-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Aloe Cottage is a wonderful space, well equipped for a very comfortable stay in the midlands in a beautiful and peaceful setting. Sandra was an excellent host she was always on hand for advice and help and she made sure we had everything we needed. Sandra provided us with a great breakfast and we couldn't find any flaw with the accommodation. The location of the property is perfect for exploring the midlands, going to Durban and exploring the south-east. We would highly recommend this wonderful cottage especially at this bargain price ! Thank you so much Sandra we'll definitely be back to visit if we're in the area !

    Our charming 2-bedroom self-catering thatched cottage is the ideal spot from which to explore the vibrant midlands meander or enjoy a quiet countryside retreat. Perfect for a romantic couple or family. Enjoy forest walks, bird watching, swims in the river and evenings by the fireside.
  • William and Nicole made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. The cottage soon felt like a home-away-from-home, set in an idyllic location, with every attention to detail taken into consideration – from comfy beds, to lovely linen, to the best equipped kitchen a small cottage can facilitate. It was a total pleasure having lovely sharp knives, a French press for coffee and and drinking water provided. We travel quite a bit and these little 'thoughtfulnesses' by the hosts really take the stay at Woodcroft cottage just that step above other locations we have experienced. Although we had no need of it – having been blessed with stunning weather– the fireplace is ready to be lit, the woodpile is stocked and I can only imagine how amazing it would be to share a glass of wine in the comfy lounge with a fire blazing. The BBQ was well used by us, and the outside seating area now carries some stunning memories of meals shared with friends – both old and new. Every extra effort has been taken by the lovely hosts. Local information re shops, restaurants and attractions has been made available, with the road to the cottage being in good repair and the whole Midlands easily accessible. Birdsong greets you in the morning to a vista of pure natural beauty, with the cottage being on a very manageable slope, allowing for that added view across the valley. We spent a day exploring local sites, and another just lazing in and around the natural swimming 'pool' in the river. Nights are made for stargazing, with the night-sky putting on a splendid show. The shower and bath are lovely, with ample hot water and great water pressure. My 6'7" husband fitted under the large shower-head comfortably, much to his delight, and proclaimed the bed as being the most comfortable he has slept in with its added length really appealing to him. Right from the beginning of our communications, our hosts were helpful and went that extra mile. From providing excellent directions to the cottage to sharing a stunning setting for a KZN Midlands getaway. We had 3-5 people staying in the cottage on different days of our holiday. Extra linen was provided and we were all made welcome and comfortable. We cannot wait for the opportunity to return some day. We have left feeling refreshed, well-rested and relaxed. We were honoured in being William and Nicole's first Airbnb guests and we can only wish them every success in this venture. They have really put a lot of thought and love into preparing the cottage and it has not gone unnoticed. Many thanks, we cannot help but feel we have found an absolute treasure of a location for future visits. I have thought long and hard whilst writing this review and cannot find one aspect at fault. Woodcroft Cottage comes highly recommended. It was an absolute joy to stay there.

The cottage was well equipped and very comfortable. Nicole and William are very friendly and willing to help with anything and we completely fell in love with their dogs who come up for visits every now and then and make you feel at home!

The friendly dogs were a bonus too, they kept us company on our walks and in the mornings joined us while we had our coffee looking out over the green hills. Nicole and William were great hosts!

The cottage is placed a good distance away from the main house, providing us with both privacy and accessibility to the hosts if needed. It is cozy, warm, and had everything we needed for a week's stay; chocolates, wine, coffee, and other groceries were provided by the hosts. The lush surroundings enchanted us with greenery and birdsong. Lucille was easily contacted when we needed her and quickly resolved any minor issues we came across over the length of our stay.

The cottage is secure, private and in a nice quiet area. I opted for the continental breakfast (as I wanted to head home and not wait for breakfast in a diner) which was served beautifully in the kitchenette. The meal was fresh and healthy, and sustained me for most of the 4 1/2 hr drive back home! Will definitely be back again, and hopefully enjoy the garden next time.

There is a Spar close by and the Artisan Restaurant in the same centre serves excellent food. A convenient stop over for birders as the Karkloof, Queen Ellzabeth Park and several other birding sites in and around Pierermaritzburg are within easy reach. Thank you, Barry we would certainly return.

    My place is on a working farm in the Midlands Meander in KwaZulu Natal South Africa. Sweet Dreams cottage is situated on Rugare Farm 3kms from the N3 highway Curry’s Post/Balgowan off-ramp that provides easy access but is remote enough to appreciate the countryside with its abundance of bird and wild-life.. You’ll love my place because of the comfy bed and the peace and tranquility of the surroundings. My place is good for couples.
  • Wow! What a lovely place! Superb location close to the all the Midland attractions around Notties, but peaceful and in a beautiful, serene setting. The photos are 100% accurate and actually don't do the place justice. The kitchen is well equipped and the bed and couch are SO comfortable. There are braai facilities, a gorgeous view from the little terrace and a beautiful garden. Columbus and Carol were wonderfully accommodating and liaising with them was easy. We will be back.

  • If you're thinking about this place, try it! You will only be pleasantly surprised! Columbus is an excellent host who not only is friendly and attentive but his home is so much more than you would expect. Value for money and a quality experience are often mutually exclusive but in this case they're not. This is an excellent location and I certainly will be back again and again! Be prepared for a full kitchen, a luxurious bath, a peaceful and secluded home and don't forget the ability to shower under the night sky! Well worth it and more.

    Daniel2017-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely little cottage away from the hustle and bustle! Columbus and Caroline are great hosts too.

    Andiswa2017-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • What a beautiful and serene cottage! It has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Columbus is a fantastic host who cannot do enough to make sure your stay is pleasant. Will definitely stay there again!

  • A great secluded location in the midlands with friendly hosts. Clean and comfortable furnishings. Relaxing environment.

    carol2016-12-11T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely lovely home situated on a peaceful farm overlooking the hills of Midlands Meander. Well-equipped kitchen and braai, outdoor shower and large patio. Perfect place to base for trips around the area and to see the rock art in Drakensberg. Highly recommended!

    Jennifer2017-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • The place is absolutely wonderful, the pictures really do not do it justice! It's location is ideal if you need a place to stay over for a wedding or meandering! The cottage is beautiful with lots of little touches that just bring it to the next level! Columbus is a wonderful host!

  • If you are looking for a great place to stay in Pmb stop looking. You will find no better place than Ian’s cottage. Better than any hotel room and the little touches make it perfect. I’ve stayed in multiple Air B+B places all over the world and this will rank right up there with the best.

  • We spent a long weekend at Ian and Michele's place and felt so at home.

  • really a nice place to stay. The host is sooooo nice. there is some little welcome gift as a big surprise , and the most important thing is they are very very warmhearted , very very nice to me, it is just like as home

  • Rheinier is an excellent host: friendly, responsive, attentive and welcoming. He made it clear that the room I was staying in was mine for the couple of nights, had a tasty breakfast and even put a chocolate at the end of the bed. He was respectful and supportive of the professional responsibilities I had to tend to while in PMB and the price was very reasonable. I recommend him very highly.

    Jeff2016-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • Extremely pleasant and helpful host. Thank you for the lovely stay!

    Gustav2016-05-28T00:00:00Z
  • Rheinier has a beautiful house! I felt immediately very welcome and at home. The room was very neat and tidy with the most beautiful view. The tea and coffee corner in the room with the breakfast the next morning was an absolute bonus! Thank you for one of the best airbnb experiences I have had at your house

    Petra2016-07-03T00:00:00Z
  • Rheinier was warm and welcoming (very easy going chap). The listing was on point (the sound of the running stream next to our room was a Bonus!). The neighbourhood is tranquil, safe and there is easy access to amenities.

    Khethi2016-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • Rheinier was an amazing host. It was unfortunate that we arrived late and only stayed for a night. He is very thoughtful and the room was quite nice. We definitely hope to come back and stay longer.

    A quaint cottage nestled beneath the plane trees overlooking the Mt Verde valley. The ideal space to unwind in the paradise of the D494, with great access to both the Midlands Meander and Drakensberg. We'd love to share this piece of the midlands with you that's been home for the past 12 years.

    Families are welcome at the Farmstrongs Loginn; a short 6km from Howick, giving easy access to the Midlands Meander & local Boarding Schools. Nestled among timber plantations & neighboured by horses, the cabin's covered patio offers the chance to take in the fresh air. Snuggle by the fireplace in winter or when the evening mist rolls in. Braai facilities & a fenced in private yard makes for a great family space. Close to the pristine Karkloof Falls and kilometers of world class MTB trails.
    Proximity to the outdoors, as well as the touristy midlands meander means the best of both. Apart from the occasional troop of monkeys passing by, one can hear fish eagles call, and an abundance of frog and bird calls. We have large patches of wild gooseberries which guests are welcome to pick from, and 5 friendly horses to watch and greet. Our Golden Retriever and Border Collie will give you a hearty welcome and welcome much cuddling - but can also be locked out of your private space.
    We are bordered on one side by Dove House Organics, the growing hub of the Organic Store located in Howick. On the other side is a horse stud farm. Ours is a charming little settlement of small-holdings which are otherwise surrounded by forestry. Further along the Karkloof Road is the Karkloof Canopy Tours which is well worth the visit.
  • Another great stay at Stacey's place

    Shaun2017-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • The LogInn has an amazing fireplace and is close enough to town to easily get to restaurants etc. Had a great overnight stay.

    Renée 2017-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • Large spacious bedrooms well kitted for families, It’s an old cabin on the outside but nicely renovated inside. Fireplace was a treat during the cold front. We enjoyed exploring the Meander, Mount bike trails heading off in every direction and a good braai at the end of the day Thank you Stacey for being so friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The cabin has clean and tidy and comes with four lovely natured horses as neighbors.

    Matt2017-04-16T00:00:00Z

    Juliana2017-05-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great accommodation, different from the city accommodation vibe, was seriously nice to wake up to crisp clean air and nature sounds. Perfect and well equipped house was very spacious and comfortabley catered for all our needs. Our daughter had plenty of space to roam and play. Lovely little patio to sit on and braai at night with wood provided. Definitely recommend staying here.

    Robynne2017-05-07T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed a lovely stay at the log inn. It is situated in a stunning area of the Midlands, KZN. It is very close to the bicycle trails and lovely walks at your doorstep. The cottage we stayed in is a comfortable size - can easily host a family of 6 or group of friends comfortably. The fire place, bicycle trails and horses outside our cottage in the mornings were some of our favourite things about this stay. The cottage is situated in an area that lacks cellphone signal but there is a wifi connection to help those needing to do some work or communication. Dale and Stacey were lovely hosts, going out their way to make sure we were comfortable and well looked after. They were informative about the area, the trails and activities to do in around the Howick area. What a lovely accommodating experience -- we will be back soon!

    Off the Beaten Track... The Shack is for those adventurers and tranquility seekers looking for something quirky, affordable and peaceful. In the heart of the Midlands, you will be spoilt for choice with MTB trails, coffee shops & farm fun nearby.
    The Shack is located in the heart of the Midlands Meander famous for it's craft routes, coffee shops and outdoor activities. 5 mins from the Mandela Capture Site , Piggly Wiggly (Park Run every Saturday) and 10 minutes from Midmar Dam. Fantastic single track MTB trails / Trail running right on our doorstep.
  • The shack is an unreal experience, rustic on first glance, with hidden 'luxuries' around each corner. An unforgettable weekend was had and the shack will be an easy recommendation.

    Cameron2016-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • The most charming cabin, set on a farm in the Midlands. We loved our stay in this comfortable little cabin! We loved being welcomed with an array of lit candles and lamps and really enjoyed having no electricity! A fantastic break from the rush of the city. Perfect stop over from Johannesburg on our way to Msikaba. Close to the N3. Thank you so much Lundy! Would definitely recommend your cabin to all our friends and family!

    Lee2015-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful stay! Perfection! I was only able to stay two nights but wish it had been for longer! I visited as a solo traveller, enjoyed the tranquility and rustic nature of the accommodation, walks and bird song! Would definitely recommend to any of my friends who like an outdoor escape and would visit again on my own or with a group of friends. The kitchen/dining/living room areas invite conversation and warm times spent with friends as do all the seating areas provided outside. I could not recommend this place enough! Enjoyed the outdoor shower and loo as well as all the up cycling which has been done to make a welcoming and functional camp. Thank you!

    Sarah 2016-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic stay, the only downside was that it was so short! We will definitely be back very soon.

    Oliver2017-05-21T00:00:00Z
  • Lundy’s Shack was an experience. Her description of it as "glamping" is quite accurate. We were personally welcomed by our hostess a short while after our arrival. The accommodation was comfortable and we slept well. The lounge/kitchen is some distance from the bedrooms and was reasonably equipped. A small amount of milk is provided for tea or coffee. The outside toilet and shower are basic but adequate. However, we had to choose whether to shower cold in order to get a reasonable flow of water (not great in winter!) or jump around under a few widely dispersed trickles of warm water. In the end we chose not to shower on the second (chilly) day! The surroundings are beautiful and most peaceful. The blossoms were out and the afternoon sun filtered through the tall trees. The outlook onto the Midlands hills was exquisite. The access roads are somewhat difficult to navigate, being in relatively poor condition. The location suited us for the time that we were there, and certainly, if you want to rough it in the great outdoors then it is just perfect.

    Fenella2016-09-06T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in the cabin for 1 night only. I will never do that again! Next time we will stay at least 3 nights. This is a place to unwind... and that takes time. The description and photos were spot on. I reccomend this cabin for folks who are at least semi-self sufficient. Perhaps if you like camping but don't have all the equipment. Everything is provided for the guests and it is clean. Just bring food and drinks as required. The pets on the property are friendly, but not bothersome. Lots of space for kids to play.

    Brent2016-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • The people are really great. They are friendly and welcoming. The house was wel made and cosy and dinner was really good! I would love to go back here.

    Homely self catering garden cottage independent from main house. The hub of the Midlands Meander route, attractions including: Howick & Karkloof Falls Nelson Mandela capture site. Close to Midmar Dam. The Berg within 40-70min drive. The beach approximately 1 hrs drive. Canopy Tours. Great coffee shops and restaurants in the area. Insane MTB and trail running routes. Good for couples, families and business travelers.
    Warm and homely Tranquil Spacious Own under cover parking
    Quiet neighborhood with shops within walking distance. Great river trail to walk / run about 200m away. Doctors and hospital near by.
  • Really lovely space, bigger than it looks in the photos. Welcomed by Nadine like an old family friend! We had a great night's sleep and we're perfectly placed to explore the Midlands Meander in the morning without having spent our day's budget (we're on a 7 month trip) on the more expensive self-catering options actually in the Meander itself. Would highly recommend.

    Hannah2017-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • This is a wonderful place to stay run by wonderful people. It is a roomy, private, and comfortable cottage. There is a large supermarket and other shops very nearby. I hope to return for an extended stay to explore to local area. I can't overstate how kind and hospitable Nadine and her family were. Traveling internationally, it's really a blessing to have someplace feel so homey, safe, and welcoming.

    Ras2017-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • Incredibly comfortable stay in a clean and spacious flat. The hosts are amazingly friendly. The area appears very safe and the flat is located close to the Meander attractions and hotspots. Overall, highly recommended.
