Our reviews

From our Google Reviews

Dawn Ridge is the ultimate homestay. John and Dawn have done an amazing job creating this warm and inviting home. From the moment we entered we felt like we were family and were visiting our hilarious and lovable grandparents. The rooms are spacious, clean and very comfortable with hot showers, excellent WiFi and air conditioning - all the comforts of home. Dawn's speciality is dinner, while John is the master of breakfast. Both have hilarious and legendary stories and we spent hours talking and laughing with them. This is without a doubt the best place and most value for money anywhere between Cape Town and Namibia. Do yourself a favour and look no more. We wish Dawn and John all the very best and thank them for an incredible experience - Davina Labi

After reading the reviews and a blog of another cyclist who had stayed with John and Dawn, we decided we had to stay here, if only for the amazing breakfast. And we were not disappointed. Brilliant value for money, clean and cosy, we'd definitely stay again when in the area - Wendy Cuijpers

It was absolutely a blast for me to stay with John and Dawn. (I was recommended by some cyclist friends). First of all, i found myself really feel at home, not just because of the comfy bed, warm showers, free wifi, 24hours tea and coffee, TV ,DVDs and all of the nice facilities, but also because of their special room design, the beautiful garden, and the great hospitality from them. John and Dawn are really really kind and helpful host - Shuang Huang

Stayed there a few months ago and again last night. Clean, comfortable and very welcoming. Dawn's proper home cooked food was super tasty. Last time I was in a rush and left without breakfast. I am glad I didn't make this mistake again as John prepared a great and filling breakfast for me this morning. Without a doubt the best value for money place between Cape Town and Windhoek - Jan-Lucas de Vos
