Great location100% of recent guests gave this home’s location a 5-star rating.

There lies a giant rock on the rock pool side that provides a cozy retreat for a couple looking for time to stand still for a while. One is taken back to other times when man hunted and woman gathered, a truly tribal experience - with modern facilities!. Outside fire sitting area with magnificent mountain views!

Great location, great external amenities and good value for money. Views from the cottage were excellent. Evenings were spent outside enjoying the fire pit and braai area. The actual cave/cottage had a few items that need to be sorted out. Cleanliness wasn’t great, spiderwebs, …

Theresas place was very interesting to us. It is something you not see everywhere. That is why we picked it. After staying there I learned a few things about caves. A cave can be dark in the night and I am not a total dark sleeper. Also in my opinion it would need a little bit of…

Lovely idea but needs quite a bit of work. Not a place I would recommend for summer - its quite small and very hot.

Response from Theresa:
Rockwood is listed as having 3 units on the property. We do have agreements and signs asking guests to keep noise levels low and apologise for any loudness on their part. In the Guest Info, it also clearly states there is nobody present on the property - only Guests who retrieve their keys from the safe and switch on the fridges. Due to electrical storms we cannot leave fridges running permanently. The owner noticed the little plate stove was left with ingrained burn stains that he has now sorted out. The leaks are new, first time ever that leaks were reported - the owner is attending to that today, thank you for letting us know. Pillow are a tough one as some like them fluffy while others like them flat. We will check and see what the situation is and replace if necessary. In summer, we have an aircon unit that is used to keep the rock cave cool - while temperature is still moderate, we do have a strong fan for guests to use. Thank you for your input, we value being alerted to problem areas so that we can make Rockwood better and better.
