‪A taste of Africa, plenty to do and so much fun for the whole family. My favorite bit is to grab a picnic basket and blanket and just enjoy the African sun :) ‬

‪I gave this 5 stars because it is so rare and precious to still find a surviving site of REAL history in South Africa as supposed to the politicized gossip going as history these days. See what REALLY happened.‬

‪Not too shabby not too exciting. It is history and people who like history and what it presents might get excited but I was not impressed ‬

‪Sadly the tea garden is no more, not allowing for a more relaxed and leisurely visit which is a great shame. House tour is a must‬

‪Not as popular as it used to be for some reason.
Went on a Sunday afternoon - had a quite stroll in the garden and somebody came out and told us it was R500 to take photos in the garden! - We left!
Staff could really be more friendly and accommodating ‬

‪We went here with a group of children. We were very surprised at how well preserved the house and contents have been kept. There is maintenance/upkeep work needed but it doesn't distract from what you get to see. You can just imagine living there years ago! They even have great games for the kids to play. A great museum and hghly recommended to visit.‬

‪We were interviewed by a tour leader that was very well informed of how Summy Marks live with his wife and children and lots of foreman and 17 helpers in the house and farm with a huge dairy building cows, pigs special rose garden and 16 verities of fruit trees. There was also horses and buildings for the couches. They even develop there own electricity with the turbines and dips for the cows. The oldest sister also had a chicken farm. They play crockey and tennis and had a horse racing tract and a huge dam with a island.
Then the tour through the house took as one an a half hour as it was fool of interesting thing.‬

‪It is amazing to see how well the interior elements are still in their original shape. The building itself would need some maintenance here and there but the funding is lacking. So the more people visit this place, the more funds to do the necessary restauration to the building!
The guide's English was sometimes difficult to understand for non-South-Africans but all in all a very nice visit‬

‪Imagine being so rich that you buy all of your household goods in another country while at the same time so paranoid that you make the caravan delivering these goods make a detour so as not to be seen... How odd, when the next step is naturally to invite the who's who of society to admire your new digs...

Sammy Marks was a complex man in a simpler time while his stature has ensured that his house and indeed his lifestyle is retained as a museum. This is a unique chance to see how a certain class lived at the time, how their very views of the world, which shaped their household would be reinforced by their surroundings and thus influence how they would shape the world around them.

At the same time, it is a lesson in the more recent history of South Africa. The house maintenance has started to slip, the gardens - which were once filled with rosebushes - massacred through a lack of resources. This is understandable, the pot has not grown larger but the needs have multiplied.

Walk around the property and overlay in your mind the views, the gardens, the grandeur described in older articles. Sit on the stoep or verandah and spy between the pillars a perfectly trimmed garden. Sip of cup of tea in the shade of the very tall trees found on the property, while imagining a high-tea setting filled with candles, classical music, ladies and gentlemen, all idling the evening away. Then you will understand what a jewel this place truly is...

One just wants to light a cigar and play a game of billiards in the game room while enjoying a whiskey or beer.

The juxtaposition of wealth and opulence of yore versus the poverty of modern times is something that needs to be experienced at this place.‬
