The place is stunning, there are a few things that maybe should be reported. The sliding door kept coming off the rails. Please replace the opener it does not work.

Peaceful Get-Away
My husband and I stayed at Rockydrift from 19 to 24 September 2014, and thoroughly enjoyed out time there. Lovely chalet in a beautiful mountainous setting with a river nearby. We went on an amazing four-hour hike up the mountain, and took many shorter walks along the river on other days. It was so peaceful and relaxing; a great get-away from city life. Judas the caretaker kindly provided firewood and all the information we needed. The chalet was spotlessly clean, and the kitchen was fully equipped. The nice large fridge, microwave, Dstv, fireplace and braai area were just some of the creature comforts which enhanced our stay. Best of all, we were allowed to bring our dog Oscar, who had a great time playing with the resident dog Whisky. We highly recommend Rockydrift Private Nature Reserve!

Nice time
Location easy to find despite the remoteness of the place. Some difficulty when arriving as the attendant didn't speak English - but we managed. We did find the advertised walking routes were a little difficult to find. We found one, but would have struggled to find the others. The resident dog was a delight and a good walking companion and the bird life was amazing. We had arrived with few provisions as it was the last 2 days of our holiday and intended eating at the restaurant next door. Unfortunately they were full but Anthony the hotel manager was a complete star and arranged for any food we wanted to be brought to our lodge. This worked very well for us as the heavens had opened that evening.

Clean. Pretty. Recommended.
Very nice kitchen area, esp gas stove and large fridge. Generally house is small but perfectly adequate size except for upstairs (kids) bedroom which is a bit small and rather dark even in the daytime due to slope of thatch roof and no windows. Bunkbeds also not good for very small kids who might fall out of bed. Chairs in lounge area not very comfy but nice to have DSTV, videos, books and magazines. Shower and bathroom area rustic but very nicely done. Garden area nice and neatly kept. Nice braai area. Units are a little close together although we were not disturbed at all by any noise because the unit next to us was empty during our stay. Lovely river and walking trail and small “dams” (rock pools artificially enlarged) looked very good for swimming although it was a bit overcast so we didn’t try. Judas met and greeted us, was friendly and helpful and was available any time on cell phone if anything was missing (e.g. dishcloths). Overall place is recommended.
