Win a 2 night stay for a family of 4 at Grootbos!

Last night I was having a chat with my kids about their list of “favourites” – colour, animal, supper etc etc. They were loving the game and I had to keep coming up with new categories…

Today’s post is all about my son’s favourite holiday!

Yes, Grootbos Garden Lodge is one of our favourite family getaways – for both us adults and our kids alike. (Click this link to see my previous posts about our wonderful holidays at Grootbos.)

Grootbos Nature Reserve, with its two 5-star lodges and luxury accommodation, is situated among the fynbos and milkwood forest overlooking the beautiful Walker Bay. This multi-award winning 2500 ha reserve is home to more than 740 different species of plants and offers warm hospitality, delicious cuisine and plenty of family-friendly fun.

We all LOVE our time at Grootbos for a variety of reasons but here are some of the highlights for our kids are…

  1. Horse rides in the paddock. (kids older than 12 can go on outrides)
  2. Treasure hunts in the forest.
  3. An outing to the nearby Klipgat Cave and exploring the beach.
  4. A 4×4 Flower safariΒ in an open-top Land Rovers with a very knowledgable and friendly guide.
  5. Whale watching (from July – December) – either landbased or on a boat!
  6. The well-equipped kids entertainment room with DVD’s / puzzles/ foos ball/ pool table
  7. Help to feed the horses and other farm animals.
  8. The delicious children’s menu.

 

It might be cold and wet but one of the best seasons to visit Grootbos is in winter! The reserve comes to life with the vibrant colours of the blossoming fynbos and the coastline is alive with marine activity especially the Southern Right whales of Walker Bay – breaching, lobtailing and displaying their many other tricks.

Grootbos is the perfect winter venue for a family holiday, with a number of unique experiences to enjoy during the day, not to mention the delicious, gourmet food and the welcoming warm fires in your room at night!

  1. This place looks amazing. I can see that you and you family had a lovely time. Perfect memories..Your kiddies are gorgeous .

    1. Wow looks amazing! Would love to win and go in Aug so my daughter could say it’s her best holiday and birthday gift ever! πŸ™‚

  2. Loving this AWESOME giveaway!!! πŸ™‚ I have liked and shared on FaceBook as well as on Twitter (@flutterbymegs)! *fingers and toes crossed* πŸ™‚

  3. Ah, I’m DYING to go to Grootbos and was JUST telling the husband that I neeeeeeed a holiday. This one has my name written all over it. Fingers crossed!

  4. What a great competition. Always wanted to visit Grootbos with my husband and son. So many activities and beautiful scenery to enjoy at a 5 star venue! Holding thumbs. Would be perfect present for my birthday in August!!1

  5. I would love to take my family away,it looks awesome and so in touch with nature. My toddlers are 2 and 3 and we have never been away with them. Here they could explore nature, feed the horses which would be an amazing experience for them. I have no doubt that this getaway would be spoken about for years to come πŸ™‚

  6. I would love to go here with my girlies who are so supportive of our workload & committments and deserve uninterrupted family time with mom and dad πŸ™‚

  7. I love the sound of Grootbos Garden Lodge..its my kind of holiday…beach, caves, delicious meals included, a walk in the Nature reserve. We would extend our stay to the 3-day option to take advantage of the whale watching trip.

  8. We live in an awesome country and certainly the Western Cape is the fairest of them all.

    That said, its not often that we can agree on a holiday spot that will tick all the boxes for both us adults ( 5 star luxury) and the children (plenty of activities and a child loving environment).

    Having worked for Portfolio Collection a few years ago, I always dreamed of visiting this establishment because it just looked picture perfect and just have never had the chance! A spot of luxury and indulgence would be so good for the soul and we love travelling best in the green season.

  9. It looks like paradise! It’s hard to believe that we have such a wonderful reserve right on our doorstep and only a visit and stay at Grootbos will do it justice with how titanic and prodigious it’s beauty is.

  10. I would love to surprise my hubby and daughter for a mini break. Been a tough month with her being terribly ill in hospital in May, but thank God she is recovering well. My daughter 3.5 years old is obsessed with horses and it’s great to find accomodation that provides access for adults and kids to guided horse and pony rides. Really hope we get the opportunity to win this great prize! God bless

  11. This looks like a great getaway. A well deserved one after 2 months off due to injury and illness. Just unwind and relax… just what the doc ordered.

  12. Kathryn, the one thing that’s extremely appealing(& the reason I’d like to take my kids)is that the kids can enjoy fun activities whilst it still being educational. Grootbos seems like the perfect, well rounded family retreat. Fingers crossed xx

  13. I would love to win this weekend away because spending time with my little family is what means the most to me. Grootbos sounds beautiful, just the crisp fresh winter air and the smell of grass and horses and sea would be bliss. We’d love to win this. My son just loves whales, and it would be the highlight of his year to see one. It looks beautiful!

  14. I have dreamt about staying at this wonderful place, and drool over the articles and pictures in the press – this would be a dream come true – my husband says I don’t stand a chance, so would love to prove him wrong!

  15. Grootbos is such a beautiful and magical place. I was lucky enough to visit with my husband last year and ever since my daughters have been asking when they could go and ride through the fynbos, they would love it. We have three kids, so if we were lucky enough to win this, we’d have to smuggle in our son too somehow!

  16. I’d love to win this to be able to visit with my family and enjoy all the amazing things Grootbos has to offer. It would be a lovely break for us all.

  17. Would love to take our kids as we all love the outdoors and they would so enjoy learning all the fun bush facts and all the activities

  18. This.is.awesome!!! I would LOVE to spoil my hubbie and 2 boys (oh and it would be quite a spoil for me too!). I would also love to see if such a fancy place could actually survive my boys. So we’ll keep all of our fingers and toes crossed….80 in total!!!

  19. Hi,I would love to win this winter breakaway for our family.We are in desperate need of a break and this looks fantastic!We have been through a really tough time with our house that flooded due to a burst underground pipe.All the wooden floors had to be lifted and we are still in the process of having it fixed.We would love to take a break from the “buildingsite” we are currently living in.PLEASE consider us!!!!

  20. I want to win this competition as we have never had a family holiday as a new family of 4! This would be the way to start!!

  21. As a single mom, there is never extra money for a holiday. I would love to have the chance to spoil my two girls with a magical holiday experience that I am sure they will have at Grootbosch.

  22. Wow wow wow. Looks like heaven on earth! Our little family of four would love to win this break away because we would all enjoy the activities and there is nothing more in the world that I enjoy more than hanging out with my awesome husbuddy, my son and my daughter. We don’t get the opportunity to go away as a family much and we could all do with some great family bonding time! X

  23. We really need a holiday… we plan our weeks totally around the kids waking up at 5am to work before they wake up so we can both be home at 5pm to have supper together, both of us work full time, and run another business in our “spare” time. A break is required!!!

  24. Wow it looks so amazing!!! we have only driven past while working and always say one day we will go on holiday there

  25. We recently stayed the weekend at Platbos – its near to Grootbos – and we were oggling the place every time we drove by. We’ve heard it is legendary and like everyone else, we could really use a fabulous holiday and a big spoiling.

  26. WOW!!! This place looks amazing!! Would love to take my little family there, as my daughter is remebering things now and this would be such a special memory for her, doing all the things she loves! And since its her Birthday and mine in July, this would be just perfect!

  27. Two family members celebrate their birthdays in August, what a super awesome spot to spend a birthday weekend! It would be such a treat too..

  28. I have always wanted to go to Grootbos. Our kids would love it as there are so many options of activities. Its been a super stressful year for us and this would be a perfect way to de-stress, having quality family time together.

  29. Because in this digital age it is great for my child to be able to spend a couple of days out in nature soaking up all it has to offer.

  30. We want to take our twin boys to Grootbos because we love living back in South Africa & taking advantage of everything that this beautiful country if ours has to offer.

  31. I absolutely love this part of the world! I don’t think I’ve ever stayed in 5 star accommodation before! All the activities totally appeal to me and my family. We love the outdoors and taking pleasure in simple things like birdwatching and spotting whales. I love the idea of creating something out of the sticks, leaves, stones etc collected on walks. This would be a real treat and a super fun holiday.

  32. My kids would love the pony rides and getting away from the house for a bit… My daughter has never been on holiday so it would be sweet for her to experience it.

  33. I’ve been working hard to complete my PhD, so I’d really love to treat my husband to a lovely weekend away so that we can spend some quality time together. Holding thumbs!

  34. I have always wanted to stay at Grootbos and after the hectic start to 2014 I think a bit of family time away is just what we need in the second half of this year!

  35. Zoe is an absolute hippy at heart, and never feels more at peace than when she is outdoors and immersed in nature. She loves smelling new types of grass, learning about new flowers, stroking a horse under their chin on that beautiful soft spot, she loves the sound of the ocean, the mystery of whales and the energy of dolphins. I have tried so hard to choose one thing that I would love Zoe to experience more than any others, and am so torn. But you have asked for one and so that one would be whale watching.

    I have shared the comp on FB and Twitter and am really really really hoping to win this for her!

  36. My kids love being outdoors and they love nature. Grootbos sounds like the perfect place for kids… A place where they can be themselves and just enjoy their surroundings. I would love for us to all get away from busy city-life and to take a step backwards and smell the flowers… in Grootbos. It looks like a magical place where beautiful memories are made and that’s what life is all about… beautiful memories.

  37. I would really love to win this for my kids. I am sure all of us mummies deserves this break away. This getaway will show my kids the true beauty of nature and that there is a life outside of a mall and more exciting things than TV. I would love to experience this with them. That God has created this wonderful earth for us that is filled with lots of hidden treasures . To create memories that can last a life time.

  38. One of the most important gifts a parent can give their child is to create magical memories….
    Thank you to Becoming You and Grootbos for offering everyone a fair chance at this incredible opportunity up for grabs for their family! How awesome and magical to experience a luxury, Eco friendly getaway on our glorious Overberg doorstep

  39. Because this will bond us to new levels and she just deserves the best and love the nature to bits !!!!NATURE CHILD !!!

  40. A friend of mine was diagnosed with cancer and starts chemo next week. Fortunately it is curable & they detected it early. He has a wife and two gorgeous girls. I want to win this competition on their behalf so that when he is finished with the chemo in 3 months’ time, they can celebrate at this beautiful venue. Coz trust me, they are going to need it!

  41. I so need a break to revitalise and spend quality time with my family: nature walks, 4×4 drives, whale watching, engaging activities for all of us, babysitting so that I can spend adult time with my partner. Grootbos offers all of this and more.

  42. the kids LOVE animals and being outdoors,they have been waiting patiently to go on a holiday….we would LOVE to
    win this

  43. We had many wonderful family holidays in this part of the world and I would love to give our kids the opportunity to share some of the splendour that this area holds. Thanks Katherine.

  44. A piece of heaven on earth waiting to be discovered! Oooh, how I would love to share this with my 2 precious girls (aged almost 4 &7) as well as my hubby. It would be our very 1st family-only getaway. Holding fingers, toes and saying my prayers.

  45. Not sure where to begin…every bit of this holiday is hugely appealing especially with a 9 and almost 3 year old :)….and of course the priceless family time that is so needed. Thanks for an awesome competition!

  46. We became parents just over a year ago. Before then we were lucky to do lots of traveling – just the two of us. But everyone who has kids knows that travelling with them is a complete different story. We have since made an effort of looking for places that are not only child friendly, but also allow for lots of things to do WITH the kids. I am keen on exploring something new and look forward to an experience with the whole family!

  47. I’ve wanted to stay at Grootbos for as long as I can remember. I’ve heard such wonderful stories about it’s beauty and how one really can relax and switch off. This would be the ideal break for my family and I. Exactly what we need!

  48. I would love to win this awesome prize at Grootbos for my family of four. We would have a fabulous time exploring the fynbos and the caves and whale watching. Then there’s the horse riding and treasure hunting, the luxury accommodation and the delicious food … It is impossible to pick just one reason to want to win when there are so many attractions!

  49. I woud love this holiday. I follow @Grootbos and I have been coveting a holiday there since forever. My family and I would go for hiking and whale watching.

  50. My kids will love the horse rides and the treasure hunt in the forest. In today’s times with technology around, we dont appreciate the great outdoors enough. This would be the perfect opportunity to spend great quality time with the kids.

  51. I would love to win this getaway for my family. Grootbos sounds absolutely ideal to make lasting memories and to nourish family bond. Not to mention the beautiful surroundings, various activities, divine food and luxurious accommodation. We are a family of three but I would love to bring my 6 year old niece along to share this wonderful experience.

  52. Id looove to win this holiday for the four people in my life…My mother, father, sister and daughter:
    I would looove to take my mom – She is more than a pillar, she is like a favourite pillow or cuddly toy – you know where to turn to for some warmth, comfort and reassurance.

    A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five
    people, promptly announces she never did care for pie

    The key is also to celebrate and honour your mother whilst you still can,
    therefore I would looove to take advantage of this opportunity to enter this competition to show her what she means to me.

    I used to say that I was the apple and my mom was the tree, and I certainly
    didn’t fall very far. But that’s not entirely accurate. If my mom is the tree, then I’m the bird that grew up in its branches.

    She protected me and showed me that, even on the highest of branches, there was nothing to be afraid of. She encouraged me to explore and gave me a solid foundation to come home to. I didn’t fall from her. I flew because of her.

    She’s always pushes me and never pulled me down…

    She always wants to help in things I do or want to do…

    This would be perfect just to show her my gratitude for all she’s done for me!

    Whilst most of us could never really thank our moms entirely for everything they have done for us, in only one gift a year.
    This competition would be but a small token of thanks for the endless beauty she has represented in your life, a small yet thoughtful gesture, for the tears, her joys, her pains, the many times she has been there when our lives fell apart at the seams, the way she helped us pick the pieces, without asking for anything in return. The eternal love, no matter what we have done.
    Moms are the compass for our families; they provide the nurturing and comfort that will keep you strong for the rest of your life, and echo into your children’s lives, and their children.
    My dad β€˜s arms remain strong in many ways. His heart is big enough to love us all, his arms are strong enough to love and protect his family and work for his family.
    His shoulders are wide enough for us to learn on and his ears are always willing to listen to us.
    My father taught me the importance of making my bed every morning. When I was six years old, he showed me how to complete the task Marine Corps–style and would inspect my work on a daily basis. Today my bed is one of the things in my life that is consistently neat and orderly, also transporting those skills into my personal lifestyle.
    In addition, I can teach my daughter what my father installed in me.
    He never looks for praises, He’s never one to boast. He just goes on quietly working, For those he loves the most. His dreams are seldom spoken, His wants are very few. And most of the time his worries, Will go unspoken too. He’s there…. A firm foundation. Through all our storms of life, A sturdy hand to hold to. In times of stress and strife. A true friend we can turn to, When times are good or bad.
    One of our greatest blessings, The man that we call β€ͺ#β€Žmydad‬ and would my heart!
    My sister is constantly helping daughter in her school work and music and she also needs a break and also for my daughter that seldom get out due to me being a single mother and has soo many financial commitments as a single mother.
    This would be perfect for the four of them!

  53. I would love to visit Grootbos beacause it looks such an awesome place for the entire family. My hubby works away and we only see him once a month so this would be amazing to be able to get away and spend quality time doing things together with our boys since they really miss their dad.

  54. Because I love holidays, and a holiday where my boys can be entertained by the outdoors and I still get to feel pampered will be amazing!

  55. So often we forget that we have the most beautiful places to visit, right on our own doorstep. To share these wonders of such natural beauty with our children, is the best gift we can give them. I would love to win this weekend away

  56. This would be a wonderful break for our family of 4
    So many memories to be created in such a wonderful place!

  57. I have been following @grootbos and now also following @becomingyou and tweeted – Good Luck – we all worthy of a 5 star getaway –

  58. Living in a world were kids are lost without their cellphones and XBox’s, is quite dreary to say the least. My kids are often chanting “I am bored” and when I look at the mountain of toys that lie in their bedrooms, I wonder why. I remember the good old days when I was one with nature and feeling the wind in my hair gave me shivers of delight. I remember sleeping under a carpet of stars and feeling one with the universe. I pity kids of today as their childhood is consumed by materialism. Why would I love to escape to Grootboos? Well, this place truly looks like heaven and the fact that it showcases nature, brings me joy. I want my city slicking kids to smell the fragrance from the blooms, be in awe of the majestic ocean and savour the flawless beauty of Mother Nature. For me, I want to take a breather from the monotony of live and simply be. I want to nurture my soul and rest. I know that visiting this beautiful place will be like food for the soul and maybe the kids can have a taste of the wonderful bounties of nature?

My toddlers are so busy & constantly need to be kept occupied because they become bored so easily! Me & my fiance would love to share this Amazing experience with them πŸ™‚

  64. I would so love to win this getaway as I’ve been realising more and more how easy it is to get stuck in routine and familiarity with each other. This prize would be the perfect opportunity for the four of us to re-connect and have fun discovering new adventures together. It’s also exactly what we need right now to provide a little escape from reality and some much-needed destressing. I would love to have this experience to simply focus on just my kids and husband.

  65. This would be a perfect way to celebrate my 46th birthday with my family! It looks like the perfect break to recharge and be inspired.

  66. A perfect breakaway from being at the office 24/7,as I don’t often have the privilege of seeing such beautiful scenery in the Eastern Cape.
    I would love to enjoy this amazing experience. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  67. My son is 3 years old and with another baby on the way (due end of August) this break would be a Godsend. I would love to visit Grootbos because my son is an outdoors fan and with so many outdoor activities this is just perfect for him!

  68. IT LOOK LIKE THE PERFECT PLACE TO MAKE MEMORIES THAT CAN LAST A LIFETIME.BEAUTIFUL PLACE WITH EVERYTHING YOU CAN WISH FOR.

  69. The year is still a spring-chicken and yet, has it been tiring! We could really really use a break and some TLC πŸ™‚ And this looks like the perfect place for a good combination of relaxation and adventure!

  70. I would love to be able to take my husband and kids on an outdoor holiday! We don’t have the money for a holiday right now so this would be such a fantastic treat.

  71. I have been drooling over your website + visiting your reserve for a few years now but it’s been sadly out of our price range …..it looks like it would be a truly magical holiday, the kids would have the time of their lives + mum + dad would be in heaven …..we couldn’t ask for any more .

  72. This looks like such a good family holiday, and we all need those. Would love to spoil my kids and share some of the awesomely happy experiences on offer.

  73. been a single mom we dont get much of an opportunity to go away on holiday , priorities would be the normal mundane things, so would be exciting and an adventure, to go to somewhere new for the kids to experience and run wild and free

  74. This would be a lifetime experience with our 2 boys – something they will never forget for sure! I would love to win to experience it with them πŸ™‚

  75. I cannot even describe how amazing winning this competition for my sister, brother-in-law and two young nieces would be!

    As missionaries with IntoAfrica, they have sacrificed so many comforts that most people take for granted and enjoy regularly, in order to put their time, resources and lives into serving others. Later this year they will be embarking on a 3 month mission trip to Malawi, and next year will be moving more permanently to Morocco as missionaries.

    This holiday (especially since they’ve never had a family holiday before) would be the most well-timed gift to one of the most deserving yet humble families I know. It would give them an opportunity to spend some quality time together, and be spoilt before they step into the next challenging season of their family life!

  76. I never knew about this exciting place until i spoke to German superstar Xavier Naidoo personally who was here in march with other artists from Germany and Austria.I followed pictures also of Grootbos and wow i was amazed at this place.Lots of things to do for the whole family and the beauty of this place is really stunning.I have not had an opportunity to travel with my family and i would love to experience the hospitality.The kids would love this getaway i can assure you.It would also be a nice opportunity to enjoy quality family time.I will pray and wait on your email regards

  77. Would LOVE to share this with my children – they need this break, we need this break … WE need to build memories … and spend quality time together …. time is a gift, a holiday wraps that gift in your heart forever !! Thanks for the opportunity to enter !! πŸ™‚

  78. Its my hubby & eldest son’s birthdays in August & what better way to spend it. And my kids love the outdoors..

  79. How I would love to go back to Grootbos with my girls. To the place where I got married to my best friend and the father of my beautiful girl. To share all the memories and happiness we felt when we got married 27 November 2011. Still one of my favorite memories. We got to spent the day at the spa, whale watching and lastly got to say our vows which was followed by natural candlelight reception. Would love to share my precious memories with my daughters.

  87. Don’t have any kids, but this would be the ultimate getaway for myself and my room mates! Just what we need after a long stressful period of exams and university! πŸ™‚

  88. This would be the most fantastic experience for my two older kids – they would never forget it! What a wonderful, comprehensive and truly family-friendly prize!!
    Also, I am a HUGE fan of Dalene Matthee’s books, from the moment my Afrikaans teacher first shoved a copy of “Kringe in ‘n Bos” in my hands early in high school and demanded that I read it right away. This magical place is set in the very area that the book – one of my all time favourites – is set in and it has been a dream of mine to visit that area ever since I read it for the first time.

  89. Since my son’s birth last year, the four of us have not had a proper holiday away together. Life is so busy and, as a working mom I struggle to find the balance. It would be great to just spend some time together and now that Adam is a little older it is a holiday we would all be able to enjoy.

  90. I would love to win this – the past year has been rather stressful, and a lovely holiday treat is just what we need to rest and refresh!

  91. What a great giveaway! Who can resist a weekend away. Never been to Grootbos but looks amazing! Crossing fingers & toes. xoxo

  92. I would love to go here because it looks beautiful and relaxing and i am always looking for ways to treat my fiance to something special because she is special and only deserves the best.

  93. We didn’t get a chance to celebrate Mother’s Day and we won’t have a chance to celebrate Father’s Day.. πŸ™ So this will be a present from our kiddies to us to celebrate BOTH days…oh, and we really need a break!

  94. The kids – especially my daughter – would love a break away at Grootbos. She is absolutely crazy about horses, and we try encourage them to get in touch with nature and wildlife and where better than at Grootbos. The Ultimate family holiday destination!

  95. I would love to experience Grootbos for the first time especially after all my family and I have been through these past few months. I think a well deserved break would do u the world of good. Would love to share with myamazing husband and kiddies.

  96. I would love to win this!

I have recently started a healthy life style programme, and lost 10 kilos, so this would start my journey of my next 10 kilos off.. A great way to celebrate

  103. It’s looks like someplace my heart belongs. A vacation here would be one for body and mind as well as something you’ll never forget. Wish I was there now.

  104. Would be nice to take our son on his first trip somewhere new especially with his birthday and our anniversary 5 days apart next month.

  105. We LOVE the outdoors and spending time together in such beautiful and peaceful surroundings is perfect.. we spend so much time in the city, rushing around and stuck in traffic – we are desperate for some R&R time where we can simply ABSORB the outdoors. We would love this opportunity to get away πŸ™‚

I shared it on facebook and followed on twitter. I’d really like to go there as visiting and spending time in new places is an experience I do not pass up.

  110. Well, I don’t actually have kids – but after some many (many!) years of trying for children – it seems like a good place to take a break from the world all the same! I’m sure my husband and I will run around and have as much fun as wide-eyed children would! I’m sure it’ll be an adventure and amazing escape either way.

  111. Looks like a magical place to take kids. Lots of great outdoor activities to do and loads of exploring . Truly amazballs as my kids would say πŸ™‚

    I would LOVE to win this competition to treat my kids to a fun and nature filled holiday! My hubby and their beloved Dad passed away tragically in a motorbike accident about 3 years ago :(.
    They have been so brave and courageous during this time of loss and it would be a fantastic blessing to spoil them with the awesomeness of Grootbos! They LOVE nature and outdoors so it will be a perfect getaway for me and them.
    xxxx M

  116. I would love to win this holiday for my little family. My kids don’t get to go on holiday as we simply can’t afford it, but it would be amazing for my 3 and 6 year olds to get away and have some fun! Fingers crossed & toes curled πŸ™‚

  117. I know me, hubby and my twin boys could do with a well deserved break. They offer a well roundef break for adults and kids alik. A beautiful environment to soak up the winter beauty!!!

  118. I would absolutely love to win this holiday at Grootbos with my hubby and kids because it looks like the ultimate spoil and a great mix of adventure and relaxation in nature πŸ™‚

  119. 1. I LOVE competitions
    2. We’re a family of 4
    3. It’s been a big year … We can do with a break
    4. We’ve heard so much about Grootbos, it would be super WOW to go
    5. We realised today it’s been 20 years today that my hubby and I first met
    6. Because sometimes the answer should just be because. Because πŸ˜‰

  120. This is our absolute dream destination. I would love to share this with my incredible parents as i have not been able to share mothers or fathers day with either of them, or celebrate their birthdays with them. This is a perfect opportunity to spoil them and let them know how special and loved they are.

  121. I’ve dreamt about going to Grootbos for many years – the natural decor, beautiful position and incredible activities makes it seem like the perfect getaway from Cape Town. After a very tough year, spending such special time with my husband and two kids would be like a slice of heaven!

  122. My nephew has been there…and he raves about it! And we really need a holiday! A lovely beautiful relaxing nature filled holiday!

  123. Due to financial constraints, my husband, 2 lovely sons and myself have never been able to enjoy a much needed getaway. As I was driving to work today,I was thinking how lovely it would be if the 4 of us could celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary (which is on the 2nd of July) by going away together. When I got home today, my one son mentioned that I should enter your competition, it could be the answer to our dreams and the best anniversary present ever.So here goes. We are holding thumbs!!!!

  124. Grootbos, you BEAUTY! I love the idea of relaxing one day and being adventurous the next… especially when both options include the beauty of creation, panoramic sea views, horse rides, mountain walks, fresh air and exceptional sounding food.
    I especially love the idea of visits to the chicken coup for our daughter to collect her own free range breakfast eggs πŸ™‚ Sounds like a great balance of luxury and family fun – I’m sold!

    I’ve shared the love on twitter (hopeofnote) & facebook (ange pange)

    PS – did i mention how much I love fynbos?

  125. i dont have any fancy comment. i would really like to have some time away with my 2 sons. alex is turning 18 and Nick is 23. im a singel mom and this would really be an awesome time for us. we dont ever go away for a holiday!! xx

  126. After a disasterous last family holiday in feb 2013 we are long overdue for some family fun and relaxation! Also having just been retrenched effective the end of June it is perfect timing to gain a bit of perspective with my wonderful hubby and gorgeous children by my side in a truely magnificent setting.

  127. We have been going on holiday to the overberg since I have been a little girl. I always look up to Grootbos is with a longing heart and have begged to go there. This is certainly the perfect opportunity to visit Grootbos…After about 25 years of waiting in the year I turn 30 would be awesome

  128. This would be such an experience for my two daughters. They love nature and we haven’t had a family holiday with just us in such a long time. It would be a real joy to spend some quality time with them and relax in what looks like an amazingly beautiful place!

  129. I would be thrilled to win this because I would love to treat my hardworking hubby and awesome kids to a weekend away! It looks spectacular and so much fun. Hoping!

  130. It’s a perfect place with an amazing setup right in the wild. Where you can definitely break away from the business of life and enjoy nature in a place that caters for the whole family. We have to go!!! Bucket list No. 1 priority now…

  131. WoW this looks and sounds like an awesome place to get back to Nature …. to show the kids 14 and 9 that there is more to life than cellphone , psp & candy crush…

  132. I would love to win this, because my husband works 15 hour days everyday. He leaves home at 6am and gets home around 9pm each night. I don’t get to spend much time with him, and a break like this would really help.

  133. We’ve always wanted to visit this amazing place and it would be amazing to actually be able to go. Such an awesome prize.

  134. I would love to treat my husband and son to a winter break! We love the outdoors especially my 6 year old who struggles with having to stay indoors in the wet weather. Grootbos looks absolutely awesome and the perfect getaway for us.

  135. My husband and I have had the privilege of working at Grootbos for a short time (didn’t stay there though) and IT IS A SPECIAL PLACE!!! I would love to take my gorgeous kids to this awesome spot – they saw the photo’s and would love to go…… The staff were unbelievably helpful when my hubby and I worked there…the lodges are so beautiful and the setting couldn’t be more perfect! Pick me!! Pick Me!!!! Please!!!!

  136. I’ve been to Grootbos for a work conference before so didn’t get to experience much of this magnificent resort and location. Would love to go back with our family and enjoy all the activities!

  137. My husband and I have always wanted to visit that part of our country and this is the perfect thing for us that we can enjoy together as a family!!!It is an absolute gorgeous lodge!!

  138. I would love to win this as Grootbos is where my husband proposed to me in 2010 and it would be amazing to go back and share the place where it all began with our 2 beautiful kids!

  139. I would love to win this prize, I have never been to Grootbos or heard of it.It looks beautiful and so scenic πŸ™‚ I am following #becomingyou on facebook..

  140. Our family just loves being together and to relax as well as being active. Our schedule is hectic with 3 kids and work and homework etc, so a well deserved breakaway is urgent/essential/exciting/adventurous and we cannot wait to experience all grootbos has to offer and doing it together! Great opportunity for (more) bonding and building memories and investing in the most important things in our lives- each other, while being actice but also relaxing.

  141. I do not have kids yet but would take my mom, gran and brother along. We have had a really rough two years and I think a trip like this to a place like that would help the four of us work on coming to peace with things that have happened.

  142. I know I’ve already entered, but really, this place sounds so idyllic and an absolute essential for these winter months I just have to enter again!
    To experience the adventure and willing isolation that bonds a family such as what is offered at Grootbos is exactly what we’re needing and longing for right now. Holding thumbs we win but happy for whoever gets to enjoy this treat.

  143. This will be an awesome treat for my family, we really need this getaway. Spending some quality time together in this beautiful environment and becoming one with nature. Will be awesome to win this prize!!! πŸ™‚

  144. Grootbos looks perfect for us! My daughter loves nature and animals and my husband and I would love to get away from smoggy cape town for a refreshing winter break. A SAHM doesn’t get many 5 star holidays

  145. I would love to have the opportunity to spend some special family time with my husband and kids. The venue looks amazing and like it would meet our every need. Such a wonderful opportunity to commune with nature and get some peaceful family bonding time in.

  146. I would love to be able to take my family to Grootbos! My girls will love to go whale watching and BF and i would just love to get away from our daily lives.

  147. Reason why I want to win:

    My dad stays in a small 1 room house in De Kelders. When we go and visit my dad we have to all sleep on the ground to the embarrassment of my dad.

    ​My dad is my hero.

    I wish I could tell you that he saved 10 people from a burning building or the fact that he found a cure for procrastination but no, he is just plain extraordinary. He has worked two jobs his whole life to support us three kids and still he spent every single moment he had with us. He has always got a smile on his face; compliment to us kids and never has one single negative word to say about anything. He is always the first to start the food and the last to sit down to eat – he was the first up every morning and the last to go to sleep. He has spent every single dime he had on us to ensure we got a proper education academically and in the school of life and never spent a sent on himself – to this day still refuse to do so. He is not only the person I look up to but also the person I crafted my own personality on and when faced with a dilemma in this hard world we live in I always ask myself WWDD (What Would Dad Do)?​

  148. I would love to take my family to Grootbos before our world gets turned upside down with the arrival of number 3 in August!!!

  149. It sounds am amazing, beautiful place to spend some quality time with my little family in God’s awesome creation. To reconnect with nature and each other. We would love to win this!

  150. With the arrival of a new baby at the same time as the stress of a cancer diagnosis my son really deserves some lightness and fun. In fact I think we all do!

  151. I would love to win this! Desperately in need of a holiday and my two girls aged 5 and 8 would be in their element. They love animals and nature, and the treasure hunts are just up their alley. I can just see them riding the horses in my mind and their little faces all lit up. This would truly be a dream come true.

  152. Would love to take a break with my wife and daughter to give us all an opportunity to get out of the city and into nature!
    Cheers,
    Karel

  153. I would love to win this as a family of 4 (one almost 6 year old and one almost 2 year old) we seldom get to go away on holiday due to busy schedules. Our sons JC and Duncan are crazy about animals and I think it would be quite the adventure for them to see a whale up close and to ride horse.

  154. I would like to share some time with my family at Grootbos, firstly because it looks beyond amazing!

    I would love the opportunity to spend quality time with my family away from the bustle of reality.

    There are so many activities we would participate in, such as:
    – delicious meals together
    – whale watching boat trip!
    – exploring of the inter-tidal zone
    – exploring through fynbos and forest
    – horse riding
    – bird watching
    – exploring nature

    I have liked Grootbos & BecomingYou on Facebook and Twitter.
    I have posted on Facebook and Twitter about this competition.

  155. This getaway would mean so much to me & my family, with our two busy toddlers constantly bickering with each other & me & my fiance’ never having a break from the day-to-day hustle & bustle of being parents & both working full day, I will admit that it is not easy!

    I can just see my kids enjoying themselves so much at this resort & me & my fiance’ getting the well-deserved break from everyday life that we desperately have been yearning for.

  157. This would be the perfect holiday for my two older kids – so many things to do!
    The area’s history and romance (for hubby and me), the whale watching, trail walking, pony riding, the beautiful, beautiful natural surroundings… This would simply be an unforgettable experience for the four of us!

  192. To experience the amazingness of Grootbos just like you did! Grootbos looks absolutely incredible!!!

  195. Shared on Twitter (and FB).

    I’d really LOVE this getaway because Grootbos is one of the most stunning venues to enjoy a memorable holiday. I’d like to show the kids that there are more exciting and valuable things in life than iPads, iPods, Wii, PlayStation, laptops, tablets and other technology. Allowing them to embrace the adventures that nature offers, and see it at its most spectacular and pristine, they will also better understand why we ‘recycle, reduce and reuse’! And, of course, quality family time will refresh us all, and give us all we need to get through the second half of the year:-)

    Holding thumbs!

  201. Yes it looks amazing, and who wouldn’t want to visit….but I really need the break. I have heard such great reviews about it but I just can’t afford it right now.

  202. I’ve always wanted to go to Grootbos – magical place! There’s no way I’d be able to afford it for my family of 4 to spend time at Grootbos, and I can just see my 6 yo going crazy there with all the beauty and space. Visited Stanford recently and love that area.

  203. Grootbos is one of those rare, unforgettable family adventures that will give our children those fond childhood memories.

  204. It’s the holiday we all need right now! We’ve recently moved into our very own house, at the beginning of the month. It took us 3 full days just to move all our stuff and I’m still unpacking! We have a 9 month old baby boy and a 5 year old daughter who’ll definitely enjoy an escape from all the moving and boxes so winning this holiday would be a serious treat for us all! Plus it’s my husband’s birthday on the 15th of Jule and then my daughter’s 6th birthday 2 weeks later on the 1st of August! This sounds like a birthday getaway and a much needed holiday all rolled up into one πŸ˜‰ Here’s holding thumbs I win πŸ˜€

  205. I would love to win this! It would be a super early anniversary gift to my wonderful husband who does so much for me and my little girl! He really needs a break and this would be the ideal get away! The prize would be the kind of gift he truly deserves.holding thumbs and toes:-)

  206. Grootbos has everything a family needs. Breakaway from the hustle and busy city life, no internet or phone calls…just the pristine beauty of Mother Nature. Mother Nature dont care in which economic bracket you are πŸ™‚

  207. Shared, liked, loved and the lot-last week already. What’s not to like, there is every reason to want to spend a week end at Grootbos. it’s natural, real, invigorating, soulful, spacious. it’s rejuvenation, it’s wanted, it’s needed and it looks like it’s calling my family for a visit

  208. Wow what a great opportunity to go somewhere completely different and treat the kids…can’t wait to win this one ha ha!!!!

  209. So many responses from so many deserving people! But still secretly wishing my sister, brother-in-law and nieces get to be the ones to experience this! Imagine never having had the opportunity to have a weekend away with your family… that’s them.

  210. There are so many worthy recipients of this wonderful prize. I’d love to win this for my family as we have had some very stressful years and the family has never had this sort of experience. Total relaxation in the most beautiful natural spot would be so energising and therapeutic. Great prize
