This is a peaceful place, with the most amazing views and sunsets. To enjoy it one should stay for more than one night. There is so much to do - fascinating tour of the Schoeman's ostrich farm; hiking, scenic drives, Cango Caves, cheese farm, Langenhoven's house and dont forget their very special dinners!

We really enjoyed our stay. The accomodation is decorated in a very pleasant and agreeable style. Staff was extremely friendly and competent. Breakfast is absolutely perfect!! The Location is a little outside of Oudtshoorn, but perfect to visit cango Caves or the swartberg pass.

Had the pleasure to spend two nights at the beautiful Berluda guest house in Schoemanshoek, Oudtshoorn. Room and bathrooms are spacious and well appointed. A spa bath was a welcome bonus. Stunning gardens on the property. Great food and very friendly and attentive staff. Most enjoyable stay. Highly recommended.
