What people say about Avani

We had a great stay, the cottage is in the perfect location, secluded in the mountains but still close to Hermanus and other attractions. The cottage has sweeping views over the valley and is surrounded by fynbos. We enjoyed the hot tub and cycling around the area.

Unique place filled with peace and tranquility. The outside hot tub was a real highlight and we ended up spending many hours sipping champagne, looking up at the heavens and enjoying the quietness of the surrounds. The beds, bedding and towels were all top quality, fresh and clean. The place is small but neat and tidy with all the necessary cutlery and utensils available. Ewald’s famous bottle of Olives I read about in other reviews before booking was truly delicious and a real treat. A really nice place to relax and unwind.

We simply enjoy the beautiful scenery and tranquility at Avani.The thoughtful touches that are added by Ewald and his wife,Liza make it even more special, such as their famous home-made rusks and olives. This was our second time round and our stay in Magic was exactly that...magic! It's more private than the rest of the cottages and boasts with a star gazing outdoor hot tub. Fantastic place and we will definitely be back soon! 🙂

Pragtige klein huisie, met meer as wat ons nodig gehad het binne en in die omtrek. `n Klein klip huisie met ’n heerlike buite jacuzzi, wat op die donkie sisteem werk en reeds vir ons aangesteek is voor ons aankoms, het ons verwelkom. Ewald het ons gewys waar alles is en hoe dinge werk en vertel van aktiwiteite op die reservaat. Hy was vriendelik en behulpsaam en ten alle tye beskibaar. Daar was ’n lieflike braai langs die jacuzzi en net n paar meter teen die heuwel op ’n swembad met ’n sauna daarby. Ons het ook die staproete om die reservaat gedoen (dis ongeveer 6.2 km), met `n pragtige uitsig. Dit was ’n heerlike kuier en ons sal vir seker weer teruggaan!

It was an icy cold and rainy weekend and still worth it! We could lounge in the hot tub and braai, despite it being the coldest days so far this winter. Ewald's welcoming bottle of wine, olives and rusks were so good. Thank you Ewald and see you again soon! PS: just don't be like us and forget extra firelighters and matches/lighter
