A wonderful new way to usher the new year!

Had a glorious stay we only realised on day 2 we have not watched TV ! Then you know that it is truly an adventure. Thanks to all at Pleasant Places

Did I mention the view was so… peaceful 🧘🏽‍♀️

Went on holiday over NYE (Dec2022) with family, and it was a great find away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The host Masana was very attentive, from the welcome note, snacks & drinks to the beautiful setting of the New Year’s Day picnic organised for the guests. It was raining for most of our stay but the host made sure we were warm by keeping the fire going. Wonderful stay and will definitely visit again.  Chef Zo makes a mean cuppacino

I’ll definitely be coming back!

Everything about Pleasant Places was amazing and so refreshing✨! From the beautiful rooms, the breathtaking views and the delicious food. Masana and her team are such great and attentive hosts, they made sure that our stay was pleasant at all times.

They certainly didn’t lie when they said “arrive as a guest, leave as a friend and come back as family” because I felt right at home.

My stay was absolutely delightful and memorable

The host paid attention to every detail. To top it off, I was pleasantly surprised by a washed car as I was leaving! Will certainly come back for a longer stay. 👌🏾

This is a great place to stay, and I can't recommend it highly enough

Spotlessly clean, in a very quiet and peaceful location. The owners are very nice people with a gentle character of hospitality. This may have been the first time we stayed here, it certainly won't be the last!

Thank you Pleasant Places for treating us like family

Thank you Pleasant Places for treating us like family throughout our stay as we ended of the year and ushered the new year. My family was able to have peaceful time at your beautiful guesthouse. The staff was friendly and warm, the host Masana was friendly and bubbly. My family were blessed to start the year at your establishment.

We did the Midmar Mile and could not have chosen a better venue

Host was a cut above the rest with a clear vision and excellent communications . We were never in doubt about anything - from meal times and meal choices , to directions and creature comforts

Beautiful Places should be the name!

Tranquil, stunning views, friendly and very comfortable. Rooms had floor heating so we were very cosy even at 8degrees in the night. The beds and pillows were super. Decor was really nice, a lot of thought and care was put into the renovation. Dinner can be requested, and please do, we really enjoyed the meal.
