What a lovely place! We were delighted with the stunning setting and the beautiful cottage with impeccable finishes and detail. The views from every room is simply beautiful, starting with the Rondevlei fresh-water lake in the foreground, to the Outeniqua Mountains on the horizon. The place is quiet and tranquil, with birds singing from Fynbos in front of the cottage, and sunlight reflecting from the beautiful lake. Our hosts were very friendly, and quick to attend to any requests with quiet efficiency. I was impressed with the attention to detail, from the fresh fruit juice in the fridge, to the giant marshmallows provided for evenings around the fire-pit. The luxurious Egyptian-cotton bedding and quality furniture, added to an air of luxury. We will miss the place dearly, and will definitely be back!

We absolutely loved staying at your cabin and can’t wait to come back. The relaxed atmosphere, impeccable attention to detail, surprising extra touches, services offered, incredible location and views and the perfect warm hospitality made our little holiday and we didn’t want to leave. Thank you

We found this gem on the way down to Cape Town and our only regret is that we didn’t plan to stay longer. The accommodation is extremely comfortable and beautifully done, with a large wooden cabin / deck facing directly onto a lake. A huge bonus for us was that it’s pet friendly so our two dogs could come along, with access to great walking routes right outside your front door. Dianne was extremely responsive and very welcoming. An excellent option on the Garden Route if you’re looking for something quiet and relaxing away from the busy tourist areas, but still within easy striking distance of the best the Garden Route has to offer.

What a treat. The beautifully appointed bedroom and living space, in a tranquil and peaceful setting on a farm, with a view across the vlei, and close to Sedgefield and the main beaches. What more could one possibly want or need? Thank you Ant and Diane for your awesome hospitality.


Some of the incredible original artworks that we are privileged to display at Equleni Guest House. These beautiful cows painted by famous local artist Lindsay Page remind us that Equleni was once a dairy farm.
