Reviewed 10 March 2013

We found the River Ikhaya to be a great little hideaway. The staff (Koos and Marie) were very friendly and really went out of their way to ensure that we saw all that the farm had to offer. Marie's flower arrangements were a very nice touch.

I would recommend the olives. Wish we had gone there is the heat of summer as we may have been forced to have a swim in the river then. You must try the Blue Cow in Barrydale for lunch (you must have dessert), Swellendam has a pretty good supermarket (and the best Checkers I have ever seen) if you want to stock up for the weekend.

The Mystic Tin (dinner) and the Oude Kombuis (breakfast or lunch) are worth the effort in Montague.

Room Tip: The River Ikhaya sleeps 2 and the other one (can't remember the name) sleeps 4

What a perfect place! After a warm welcome by Koos and Marie, they showed us the really beautiful River Ikhaya house. The place is romantic and it's decorated very beautifully with an eye for detail. We felt at home and spend some wonderful nights on the terrace. In the morning the cows joined us for breakfast. Bronze Grove is a place to remember and to get back to!

We had a lovely overnight stay at Ikhaya. The cottage is just perfect, with a lovely setting close to the river and views of the surrounding mountains. The cottage is simply but beautifuly furnished with such nice attention to detail including a small carafe of sherry as a welcome! Its situation is beautifully peaceful but not far from Barrydale, perhaps 3km at most so if you werent in the mood to selfcater, near enough to the restaurants of Barrydale. We just wish we could have spent more time to enjoy some hikes in the area which I'm sure are well worth doing.

We are so happy to have found this little peace of heaven on a route we so often travel and will definately make this one of our regular stops! Friendly staff lead you thro a valley to a cottage perched on a small hill overlooking a river and the magestic mountain range beyond! The cottage is perfectly equipped and extremely comfortable - lovely stone and rock bath - deep with plenty of hot water! We love sitting on the terrace listening to the wind in the trees and the river rushing by. Perfect stay in every way! We will definately be back.

We stayed in the River Ikhaya cottage with our 2 year old daughter and parents. Very clean and simple with all the necessities you could want for a relaxing weekend away. There was a troop of baboons on the cliff across the river which provided much excitement for our daughter! Carol and Rodger were very welcoming, we will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Both the rooms are right on the river, so either one is a good choice
