Hostess was very friendly. Got what I paid for. Nice and relaxing atmosphere. Good experience overall.

Roger Nikola Dec 2014
Very cosy, comfortable with everything you need. A light at the lapa/braai area would be nice.
Willem Kuperus Aug 2014
I loved relaxing in the cozy cabin. Only issue is the dirt road , it needs to be graded, very tough for my car to maneuver and dodge big rocks. Other than that, really nice.
Kevin Bartle Jun 2014
Well looked after and cozy establishment. With the inclement weather, the fireplace was very welcome.
Jonathan Parenzee Apr 2014
Friendly, clean, quiet and comfortable.


Drive through the town of Magaliesburg and take the R24 Rustenburg Road.
Travel 2km until you see a turn on the left hand side "Nullarbor" turn at this intersection. This is a small fairly insignificant paved road.

Cross the railway line and the road becomes sand.
Travel for 2km and follow the signs for 'NULLARBOR COTTAGES'. We are the last property on the road so you cannot get lost.

If you reach the turn for Girls and Boys Town or Lover's Rock you have gone too far - go back.
