Holingsberg Uitvlugt: Emma Mendes – 16 August 2013

Hi Heleen

 We had the most wonderful long weekend away at the Uitvlugt Farm House, thank you! We all kept saying how perfect the place was, in every way! It was very child friendly with more than enough space for everyone. I now understand why you tell people to not take anything from the house, because you have the most amazing and interesting antiques. Sadly it was very windy while we were there and therefore rather cold, but we did not feel this inside the house with all the fire places. 

 We felt safe at all times and did not have to hide things away at all. The help that we got from the lady and gentleman with the dishes, cleaning and fireplaces was much appreciated. They were both very friendly and the lady even helped look after the baby while we were busy packing up. 

 One always feels nervous booking a place over the internet but we were so happy and will definitely be returning! 

 Lots of fish were caught but most of them were then released. We did take 2 though. As far as I know, there were no breakages. As indicated before, there were 8 adults and 2 children from the ages of 2 – 12 years. I will then deposit the rest of the money into your account, including the cost of the 2 fish when I receive the invoice. 

 Thank you again for a peaceful holiday and I will definitely send you some photos when I have sorted them out.

 Have a good evening

Hello Heleen

Thank you for your mail.

Uitvlugt was wonderful.  It is a really special and beautiful place but most importantly it will be perfect for our requirements for our photographic workshops.  Hopefully we can put together an itinery that will be popular and we can have a regular workshop in Dullstroom.

Thank you and I’ll be in touch before end July with numbers.

Hi Heleen,

 Ons het ‘n heerlike naweek gehad!  Het niks gebreek nie, gelukkig.  En die ouens het ongelukkig ook nie eers hulle visstokke saamgevat nie, hulle wat baie spyt toe ons daar aankom, so ons het geen vis gevang en gehou nie.
