CLIENT REVIEW - MICHELLE BOSMA:

Just to let you have some feedback. All in all Flintstones was a lovely getaway. All our fears about being without technology were allayed by the well appointed, gas stove, fridge, geyser, oil lamps, extra gas lights, jetmaster fireplace inside, huge braai fireplace on covered and tented sides verandah, plus warm comfy beds, well appointed kitchen and character of thick stone walls and thatch, a lovely view over the valley, birds, cows, sheep, lovely walk, very close to Memel. Please let the owner know that we thought it was a great getaway, we loved the decor and layout, we thought the big rock had fluorescent spots on it that dated back to the stone age but those were paint spots (haha).
