Pros: The executive room is a superb space. Really comfortable with a nice little deck,which Dave and Monika were kind enough to set up to provide us with an intimate and private environment for dinner. The food that night (mixed venison steaks) was truly excellent - a credit to the combined efforts of both Monika and Dave.
Cons: The approach road is rather rough, so be prepared. We had communicated an allergy to eggs at the time of booking but, unfortunately, we did not remind them when we checked in. As a consequence breakfast was rather limited for the allergic person.
Pros: Fantastic hosts, wonderful atmosphere. Absolutely loved it. I wish Dave and Monika all the best with this awesome adventure.
Pros: Clean place The view is nice, very quiet. Owners very attentive.
Cons: Acces to property a bit difficult with small car, but still ok without rain.
Pros: Marula Cottage was the most pleasant surprise of our journey. We read the reviews, of course, yet we were unprepared for how much we ended up loving the place. Excellent company, food, views and ambiance. Monika and Dave (the owners) were super nice. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Stay more than one night, if you can.
Cons: There's nothing to not like, really. All was perfect or even better. The only thing we did not like was that we had to leave so soon. Next time we will stay longer! Promise!
Pros: The warm welcome from Monica and Dave and the relaxed atmosphere.
Pros: The location is exceptional with superb views of the surrounding bush. The garden is lovely and there is plenty of interesting bird life. Our hosts, Dave and Monika, were great - friendly, knowledgeable about wildlife and generally helpful. The food they prepared was fantastic. This was our 2nd visit and we were not disappointed. Highly recommended.
Cons: Nothing not to like.
Pros: Great B&B when visiting Marakele as well as Pilanesberg. Monica and Dave (and their dogs) are great hosts. We felt very welcome and Monica prepared us some lovely dinners after our game viewing days in the park. We would definitely stay here again!
Pros: Very friendly hosts. Everything to make a stay comfortable. No TV though. Great view
Pros: We liked everything about our stay at Marula Cottage, the room was very nice and clean and the hosts were very acommodating and gave us great tips on what to do on our stay.
Pros: If you like peace and quietness, nature and some adventure, this is the place to be!
Pros: Very friendly reception by Louis and his wife. They are always available for the guests. Thanks for the interesting discussion during our afternoon tea times, grapefruits tasting and the night drive. The basic chalets are in a wonderful place up in the hill overlooking the valley and the Marakele mountains. Kitchen and equipment is good, everything is available which is needed for a good braai, special outdoor shower. A great place in the bush, quiet and peaceful, a dream for a nature lover.
Cons: road up to the hill is not very easy for a small car, but we managed the drive up and down
Pros: The view and exclusivity
Cons: The road conditions and mentioning this for visitors
Pros: The view and the breakfast was amazing
Cons: Not all info was provided in the ad
Pros: The view is amazing, very calm Kitchen well equipped + braai and boma and wood already there to start the fire Very nice welcoming The personal night drive through the farm was a very nice plus
Cons: Somehow the equipment in the chalet is quite rustic. Not necessarily a negative point but travellers should know that the chalet are quite remote in the farm and therefore very little phone coverage and some bumpy drive to go there. Not very secure for young children (but our daughter had a lot of fun anyway).
