      Stayed 2 nights at blue roan. A perfect getaway just 1:15 from JNB. Very peaceful, romantic and beautiful location. Each chalet has it's own theme, very creative and unique. The chalets are well equipped with anything you would need. No kids here but many dogs and horses and a wonderful panoramic view of Magaleisburg. The hosts, Judy and Yossi, are very welcoming and attend to every need. They will be glad to recommend places to see and restaurants to eat. It really fills home away from home.

If anything, the stay this time was even better than the last, with the Host Judy being quite attentive to our needs. Reading through the previous comments, I see that there is no need to comment on the amenities - as they all seem favourable. All that's left then for me is to comment on the experience. 10/10

      Thank you for your comments Jeremy. It was lovely to meet you. I do apologise if you felt like you could not utilise the jet bath. We certainly don't forbid our guests from bathing, but because of the extreme drought conditions this last winter, we did ask a few guests to be 'water wise" when the rains were so late in coming at the end of winter, as all the farmers out in this part of the country, are totally reliant on borehole water as we do not get piped water at all. I do hope this did not spoil your stay and hope to welcome you back one day. Kind regards, Judy
