WHAT  TIME  CAN  WE  CHECK  IN?

Check-in is strictly from 2pm onwards. This gives us just enough time to get the unit sparkly clean and sanitised before you check in. Please do not arrive early, as we (and we are sure you) prefer not to rush the cleaning process. Myself, Maryke, will be around to welcome you. If I am not here, I will do my utmost to notify you in advance. Check-out is before 10am on the morning of your departure.

CAN  A  NORMAL  SEDAN  CAR  DRIVE  THE  ROADS  TO  THE  GOODLAND?

Yes, we are off a tar road with only 200m of graded dirt road to reach your cottage. The roads to and from The Goodland are tarred & can be traversed with a normal sedan car. It is however not advisable to travel with low-profile sports car because of the general state of the roads.

CAN  I  BRING  MY  DOGS  ALONG?

We have two pet-friendly units at The Goodland, namely Honey Cottage and Cottage Two. Both of these are completely fenced. We prefer not to have more that two pets in Honey Cottage as the fenced area is rather small. A surcharge is applicable per pet. Additional terms and conditions apply when you bring pet/s.

WHAT  DO  I  NEED  TO  BRING?

The Goodland provides all linen, bedding, blankets, towels, dishwashing liquid, soap for the shower & toilet paper.

Bring your own firewood and charcoal. Also swimming towels - the pool is open to use for all guests

Each cottage has a Nespresso machine for which we provide coffee pods for the first day, please bring your own for the remainder of your stay if you enjoy this type of coffee.

ARE  THE  COTTAGES  SERVICED?

No, the cottages are not serviced daily - this can be included at an extra charge, please enquire in advance.

IS  THE  WATER  SAVE  TO  DRINK?

Yes, the borehole water in cottages is completely save and of excellent quality - recent test results available at request.

DO  THE  COTTAGES  HAVE   FIREPLACES?

Currently, both Milk and Honey Cottage have fireplaces and we anticipate Cottage One and Two to have before the winter of 2022.

HOW  IS  THE  WEATHER  IN  THE  BERG?  WHAT  SHOULD  I  PACK?

In summer, temperatures can be high during the day but often drop at night, so pack warm clothes as well as winter gear. In winter the days and night are cold, and can get very cold. The weather also tends to change at the drop of a hat, so rather come prepared.

 

DO  YOU  HAVE  A  RESTAURANT  ON  THE  PROPERTY  OR  CATER  FOR  ANY  MEALS?

The Goodland is completely self-catering & all cottages have a kitchen (with - but not limited to - cutlery, crockery, basic pots & pans, utensils, 4-plate stove & oven, microwave & toaster. Each cottage has a braai on the verandah). Each cottage also has complimentary free-range eggs, starter tea and coffee. There is no restaurant on the property but The Valley has many wonderful options.
