Looking for a beautiful, relaxing getaway thats dog friendly...look no further!
This is the second time we have stayed at River Edge Acc (This time for my mums birthday) in Willem Hendrik house, and it won't be our last visit. Before our arrival (3 hooman's, 3 doggo's) we received an SMS with gate codes, emergency numbers, and passwords (for keys and excellent high-speed wifi for those who can't quite break away from technology and/or work) Upon arrival, we entered the house via the decking (which is totally enclosed, so dogs can't escape) and were greeted by a warm, ready to use jacuzzi. Fire starters ready to go for the braai and indoor fireplace. Everything was clean, well stocked and all that needed was for us to unpack our food, clothes, and dogs. Super comfy beds were made even cozier by the addition of heated blankets (bliss). A couple of issues were rectified as humanly possible on a Sunday when we realized our cooker needed a new gas bottle. Within the hour, a new bottle was fitted, and upon hearing that we had left our gin at home (after over-excitement from the dogs left to us missing one bag to be packed in the car) came back later, explained that they made gin on the farm (Monks), and had in hand a bottle of there Gin and a bottle of tonic which if we would like, we could pay at the end of our stay! WONDERFUL! Needless to say, he saved our bacon and we accepted the gin and tonic - we thoroughly enjoyed it! We spent 2 nights but would have liked to have stayed longer. We arranged for a slightly later departure time, which allowed us a leisurely breakfast before leaving. 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.
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!!!!
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.

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.
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.
