Hi Christine


Dit is al ons tweede keer wat ons by Boesmansdrift gebly het en is ons mal oor die plek. Absoluut “home from home” atmosfeer. Baie dankie vir alles en sal ons die plek definitief aanbeveel. Ons kom kuier sommer een van die dae weer. Vriendelike groete



Hello Christine,


I had a lovely time. It was really beautiful and the puppy definitely enjoyed the walks through the orchards. Everything was perfect. I could not find any fault. The extra spices are definitely handy for cooking, people often forget the little things. And the bedding and linen was divine. I also love how equipped the kitchen is. Otherwise the place is to die for and I will definitely be coming back in the near future. Thanks again for letting me bring the puppy along. It was a great experience for her and it allowed for some good training time in new surroundings. She was very good and didn't destroy anything except an avocado and maybe a fly or two. And thank you again for the lovely house you have created for your guests.



We have had such a lovely stay at your farm house. Busy packing up and are so sorry that our holiday is at an end. The children were in their element playing in the garden and walking on the farm. We visited your neighbor who very kindly allowed our daughter to hold the kittens. Thanks for everything. We hope to be back - maybe for next year's Wine On The River!



Hi Christine,


We completely forgot to write in your book. You may do so on our behalf and I think this sums it up for me when my husband said: ‘it feels like we’ve lived here for 20 years! Perfect breakaway from routine.’


Thanks Bronwen

Dear Christine,


thank you very much! We have a wonderful stay at Boesmansdrift! The accommodation was most comfortable and cosy!We enjoyed long walks to the river to burn off some of the calories we consumed! Two of us explored the area and was invited by a dairy farmer to see the cows being milked. We even got to feed the calves and lambs! It was so exciting for us city folk! Thanks again for sharing your beautiful home & farm with us! We hope to see you soon!

Hi Christine,


we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Boesmansdrift and can highly recommend staying there. We especially liked the garden that is enclosed allowing our 17 month old to wonder outside and play on the swings without getting into mischief or wondering into a road.The house is also wonderfully decorated making you feel right at home.

Dear Christine,


we enjoyed another weekend at your house. Many thanks for the extras - especially the wine and the rusks and of course the weather was perfect.



Good morning Christine,


thank you for contributing to a memorable weekend with my Family and Friends. We enjoyed ourselves tremendously to the point that they requested to make this an annual outing to Bonnievale. The house was very centrally situated to the route we wanted to do, thus making it easier to start and finish the route. Some members felt we should extend it to the Monday next time.

Good morning Christine


I would like to thank you for a wonderful time. Your house is amazing, I am in love with it. We will definitely return there soon.The walk to the river was so much fun, my boy of 3 years didn’t want to go home.

Hi Christine


The house was very comfortable and well equipped. We slept well, ate well and had an awesome time. Enjoyed a beautiful bike ride around the farm. Perfect base for visiting local wine farms and enjoying their wine!

Ons het vreeslik lekker gebly en gestap. Die kinders het heerlik fiets gery! Bonnievale se mense is verskriklik vriendelik!! Daar was nie water Sondagoggend nie en almal het gehelp. Om nie te praat van Saterdag toe ons seun sy motorsleutel in die kar toegesluit het nie!! De hele dorp het gehelp!!
