Dankie vir ‘n onvergeetlike lekker naweek

Jaco en Colette,
Dankie vir ‘n onvergeetlike lekker naweek. Ons het Zebra huis so baie geniet. Die eenheid is pragtig en julle plaas is ‘n Klein Karoo juweel.
Ons gaan terug Stellies toe met herlaaide batterye en voel na die naweek bederf met wat Desert Wind bied.
Liefde groete,

Cindy en Chinique

Die plaas is amazing

Dankie Jaco en Colette,
Springbok huis het ons heerlike, gemaklike en luukse verblyf gebied. One of the many gorgeous houses on the farm. Thanks for your amazing hospitality. Baie geluk, julle is ‘n wen-span. Die plaas is amazing. Dankie Jasmien en Blommie julle mag maar roosterkoeke maak.
Tot weersiens,

Garth en Sonette

Desert Wind Farm is die plek om weg te breek

Een ding is verseker, wanneer jy wil wegkom van die Stad en geraas is Desert Wind Farm die plek om weg te breek. Die stilte, sterrekyk, die diere, 4×4 roetes, sonopkoms – sonsondergang en gasvryheid – AMAZING. Pluspunt: die kamer / huisie was mooi skoon, alles wat ons nodig gehad het om in styl wakker te word :). Dankie julle, ons sal defnitief gou weer kom.
