Mist & sunshine
It was a fantastic/wonderful/beautiful/lovely, etc 3 days we had at Kuhestan, and your staff were wonderful and friendly. We enjoyed Lucky very much as well – very cute!!! I cannot express the feelings and the mist and the sunshine and the sunsets and the trees and the air.
Thank you so much for everything. (It was heavenly!!!!!!!!!!)
A lovely experience
My husband and I enjoyed our time at Kuhestan immensely. The view from our bed of the indigenous forest and Azaelea’s was a precious gift. The gardens were magnificent, and we enjoyed the fresh farm produce delivered each day. Lighting the fire on the wet and cold Sunday evening was a treat and added to the wonderful atmosphere. Our hosts were very kind and friendly – we will go back!

We spent a wonderful Christmas in the beautiful self catering cottages. Lovely walks in the forest, cool relaxing gardens and plenty of interesting things to do and see in the Haenertsburg area. Best of all was the lovely freshly baked bread, fruit bowl, muesli, jams and preserves, eggs and other goodies given to us throughout our stay. We do a lot of self catering and never before have we been given more than a complimentary tea bag.

Mist and warmth
We enjoyed our stay very much, your gardens are exceptionally gorgeous, and we had a great time picking some raspberries and visiting your production facilities. We loved the fireplaces in the rooms, and the rain and mist was something very special for my in-laws as they haven’t got any of that in Lima, Peru. We’re hoping to visit again soon, and for a bit longer!
Just a quick note to thank you both once again for a very special stay at Kuhestan. I am just sorry our visitors had to leave early. We so enjoyed the Persian breakfast and your avocados are delicious. It was lovely being able to spend some time with you and Brett again. Hopefully it won’t be long before we are back. Just tell Peter your Buffspotted Flufftail is back in your garden and he’ll be back for a week to try and find it!
We hope that you are both well, and enjoying your wonderful garden!
We truly loved our stay and really regret not staying with you longer it was the highlight of this trip to SA. Wishing you a very happy future, and may be will see you in the future???

Shahrzad, a big thank you to you and Brett again from BirdLife Sandton for an absolutely wonderful stay. Kuhestan is always an absolutely pleasure to visit and there is no doubt that we will use your venue again in the future. One is always made to feel so welcome there. Speaking for myself, it is certainly one of my favourites so you will be seeing more of me.
A little bit of heaven
The people, the garden, the accommodation. All were in perfect harmony. What a wonderful place to stay! An experience not be to missed! We stayed in one of the farm cottages surrounded by the most beautiful gardens bordering onto a natural forest. The finishes in the cottage as well as the equipment are of the highest standard. The rooms are spacious and modern, but still have a cozy feeling, enhanced in winter, by the fireplace. Brett and shahrzad, our hosts, went out of their way to make us feel at home and were also very helpful with advice regarding places of interest to be visited in the area.
Fantastic cottages, a hidden gem
It was a wonderful, memorable experience staying at the Kuhestan cottages. The location is perfect, with trails leading right off from the cottages, it is the best place in Magoebeskloof at which to stay when exploring this area. The fire place is great with a perfect layout in the cottage and lovely attention to detail touches along with the complimentary yoghurts, fresh farm milk and home made bread that is provided on arrival.

Heaven on earth
I have been fortunate to stay at Kuhestan twice, once in the winter for the wonderful Persian cooking course and then again in spring during the berry festival. Brett and Shahrzad are wonderful and very interesting people; excellent hosts and magnificent cooks and entertainers.
