Kort duskant Asemskep se afraaipad het ons motor onklaar geraak. Binne minute na ons oproep het 2 engele opgedaag. En het my familie en ons bagasie na die goed versorgde gastehuis geneem en die ander het gesorg dat ons motor dadelik na Middelburg geneem word. Ons is met deernis op die hande gedra. Beulah het met aandete en ontbyt gewys sy's voorslag in die kombuis. Die volgende dag het Buks ons halfpad George toe geneem en het net afwysend geglimlag toe ons hom wou vergoed! Ons kon met reg net 'asemskep'.

“Breath of Excellence”

This very remote, beautiful and serene guest farm far surpassed any of our expectations. Not only were we greeted with warm smiles at 23:45 pm after running extremely late, but also were we surprised to find a clean, neat and warm place to rest our weary legs... After one becomes adjusted to the utter silence, the farm offers a array of little hidden gems like... a Milktart in the fridge to a picturesque backdrop of mountains and a beautiful dam outside... We fell in-love with the setting and were sad to leave, we will certainly be visiting again and for longer for sure! Thank you Beulah!! xxx

We had a lovely experience in this farm house. It was our half way point from Cape Town to Johannesburg. Beulah was very helpful with directions, although there was more untarred road then we were expecting. We would definitely come again ”
