    Rustpunt Guest Review

    Average Guest Rating: 
      5.0 out of 5 based on 1 review.

    The cottage is rated a 3 star but for us it was really a 5 star experience. Clean and the special touch of veld flowers in the rooms made us feel "welcome". Can recommend this "sweet" little cottage one hundred percent!
