“The highlight of our stay in South Africa!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2011

I've never written a review for TripAdvisor but since the moment we've driven through the gates of Linger Longer I felt compelled to do so! The hosts Donna and Tom are such warm and jovial people and definitely went out of their way to let us feel at home. Even the following morning when my husband was not feeling well Donna kindly sent him some medication. Since we are a family of 4 we stayed in the most charming stone cottage called "Linger Lo". The word immaculate comes to mind when describing the inside but not in a cold and clinical way but rather clean, neat and with amazing attention to detail. The linen is ideal for the very cold weather you might encounter in Dullstroom and everything you should need is right on hand . The boys loved the board games as well as the fact that they had their own "Heidi & Peter" room upstairs! The fire place was already stocked with pine cones and chopped wood and next to it was a little iron box with marshmallows and 2 fondue sticks just ready for our boys to toast after dinner. Talking of which, you have the option to pre-order a home cooked meal and this divine tasting food was personally delivered by the hosts so that we did not have to go out in the cold of night. Imagine enjoying some oxtail with a red wine sauce while a cozy fire is burning and the voice of Pavarotti in the background! The table was beautifully set with candles and even sherry to welcome us. One can take walks on the property or try your hand at Fly fishing or just sit on the deck that faces the trout dam sipping your sherry. I was watching the boys playing under the pine tree and wondered how much better life can get?! We can highly recommend this little piece of paradise with the very appropriate name and hope to be back next winter! The Jansen family (South African expats in Saudi Arabia)

The Linger Longer is AMAZING!!! It did not disappoint at all. When you arrive at the property you are stunned by its beauty. The owners Donna and Tom are so nice. The Linger Longer is secluded from the other 2 cottages on the property. It is quiet and relaxing. The decor is gorgeous. The kitchen is fully outfitted. The living area has a wonderful fireplace which is great for cold nights, firewood is provided. It was one of the best night's sleep ever. The bathroom is gorgeous with a clawfoot tub. There is a free standing shower in the bathroom but there is also a romantic moon lit shower.
The view from the house is looking out till rolling hills and trout dam. If you are looking to relax the Linger Longer is the place. Just watch out for the black horse..he is mean and will try to get you.
