Minette Hugo Coetzer house

All I can say is wow, we went to the Coetzer house on Spring day, we had a good sunny weekend all round, the wooden deck was the place we spent most of the time watching the panoramic views and the bird noises, fire was burning the whole weekend and jacuzzi was fantastic. The kitchen has everything and is fully equipped. They give complimentary coffee and plunging coffee with 2 special vouchers for Gin tasting and discount on wine!
The beds ans bedding is absolutely amazing, So sleep is long and deep! This place should be rated 10 out of 10, we will be back when we can get a booking again as its booked out way in advance. I love love love this place, so pretty and setup for any occasions 💙 thank you to the special lady at the shop, and making us feel very welcome.
Coetzer house is a very special holiday desitnation worth every sent spent.
Like Arnold Swarzenegger says, ill be back. 😂

Most relaxing getaway

Most Relaxing Getaway!
First time in years I've slept so late - beds incredibly comfortable, friendly hosts, beautiful setting, and well-equipped cottages. In Winter the fireplaces are amazing and I can only just imagine how wonderful swimming in the river right outside your cottage must be. Kids enjoyed fishing, and the hot tub was the cherry on the cake. Will definitely be back!

Hidden Gem

Wow. Stunning views and birdlife. House comes with everything you would need and more. Clean and neat. Was very grateful for the stash of fans as it was so so hot. Good fun in the river on the boats and swimming. Braai facilities and fully kitted out kitchen. We'll definitely be back!


Fabulous spot

Fabulous spot, kitted out with all you need for a comfortable stay. Location is secluded, with the river perfectly positioned right on the doorstep. Will certainly head back again.


Stones throw from river

This was our second visit and we were thoroughly happy with the accommodation and coffee shop.
Dogs were very happy too!! The unit is a stones throw from river and you are provided with your own canoe and boat.


Relaxing family time

Spent 2 lovely nights relaxing and swimming with the family.
Perfect river setting with beautiful mountain views.
Total privacy and very comfortable accommodation.
Thanks for the care put into the facilities which make for a positive experience.


Coetzer house

We booked a last minute getaway, and were fortunate enough to get a booking at River Edge. It was our first time visiting but won't be our last. We stayed in Coetzer house it was extremely spacious, comfortable, clean, peaceful and very well equipped. We brought along our dog too who also thoroughly enjoyed her visit, little extra's for pets (bowl/towel)
We spent most our time cooling off in the river, had breakfast at the farm shop and visited the Gin distillery.
All staff were very friendly and helpful.
Thank you River Edge.

A little piece of heaven

We loved this beautiful home away from home! The houses are well equipped and quite a distance from each other which makes staying there more pleasurable. It was more than what we had expected and we definitely recommend River Edge Accommodation, especially when pets are a part of your family! We will be back soon!

Anniversary weekend away

Amazing getaway for family and friends. We will definitely visit again! Spacious, comfortable and beautiful. Has everything you need to entertain yourself, relaxing and private. Information of the property is timeously provide by the host to sufficiently prepare before the trip


I cannot recommend this accommodation high enough for those who want to escape, enjoy a relaxing beautiful retreat on the river's edge and still have members of there 4 legged families along with them. The house we stayed in easily sleeps 4 people, this can be adjusted to 6 with matress's and bed frame stacked (provided) in the lounge. You'll see us again... Bonus, they make amazing cheesecake at the small shop/cafe as you arrive that is def worth a taste.



Just to say thanks for everything. We all had an absolutely wonderful weekend camping at River Edge.

The additional extension to the lapa was a fantastic and unexpected surprise, and the indoor braai was awesome.

The decision is unanimous that we will definitely be returning to camp again at River Edge.



Peaceful and tranquil. The cottages at River Edge Accommodation are ideally located right on the bank of the river and surrounded by mountains. The setting is beautiful. The cottages are wonderfully equipped with everything you might need and are very clean. Spend your days lounging by the river or in the hot tub on the deck. Highly recommended for great relaxation.

Quiet getaway

I was looking for a secluded, quiet, retreat for a few days.
Stayed in the Benjamin cottage and it was perfect!
Enjoyed the solitude, birds, view of the mountains, little river space at the bottom of the lawn (canoes are available as well), and the sunsets were beautiful.
The cottage is set in a vineyard but isolated from the others.
Safety is taken care of as well.
The fire place added to the ambience in the evenings.
The hot tub works very well.
The cottage is equipped with everything one might need and was immaculately clean.
The internet was a bit slow for work purposes (videos) but more than adequate for everything else.
The road was a bit tricky on a sports bike, but suitable for a normal 4 wheeled vehicle.
My time there was very comfortable and peaceful.
Will definitely book again.


Our first anniversary getaway. What a magic place, we could not of asked for a better quiet, peaceful, tranquil getaway than this. From kayaking on river, to sitting in the jacuzzi on the stoep, to casting a fishing rod from the deck, to braaing on deck it was awesome. From the surprise seeing of otters, a bird catching a fish and hitting it on a log of wood to kill it, to the simple bird watching, it was just wonderful. Would recommend to everyone, but don't want to advertise to much as it gets booked up too quick. Difficult to get bookings especially on weekends.

The views were Spectacular. The accommodation is lovely & clean and the house has just about everything you'll need for your stay. The jacuzzi's a great touch. We had a great breakfast at the quaint Coffee Shop too.

As a family it is really a lovely setting. Peaceful and intimate. We even took the fur kids and they loved it! Great little river for kids and dogs to keep themselves occupied. The cottage was perfect. Super clean, spacious, inside and outside fire places with lovely veranda. Everything is of quality and they even had a dishwasher! Which is brilliant as one is on holiday and does not want to spend time washing up. We shall definitely go back and I can strongly recommend the River Edge Accommodation. Thanks for the great stay!!!!


Trip Advisor

Beautiful house with wrap around porch for comfortable outdoor living. We had dogs with us and the space was great for them. We spent most of our days on the porch which has covered space with dining table and couch area along with braai and jacuzzi area.

We had an amazing time. The cottage was extremely clean and very comfortable. We had loads of fun fishing and my girlfriend took the kayak for a spin up the river. Very tranquil and I loved that you only saw people in the distance. And I could not believe how fast and reliable the WiFi was. River Edge can be guaranteed we will visit again.
