The cottage was upgraded recently with a modern design and everything was exceptionally clean. The kitchen and living area were spacious and crockery, utensils and cooking equipment of a good quality. The bathroom was... More

Good place to stay for 1 or a few nights. Comfortable, well kitted, nice braai area. Friendly staff and a pleasant garden with a pool. Good breakfast. We left a pair of shoes there and they were kept for us (didn't just disappear). Would happily go back

The accommodation offered comfort and hospitality, it is close by to all the major attractions in tsitsikamma -the perfect place to refresh, stop over or use as a base during your garden route travels.

Quiet and comfortable stay in a tiny and nice house. We organized each diner, every evening, outside, enjoying the terasse and the barbecue. We will keep in mind this accomodation for our next stay in the garden Route;

Facilities/cottages are good. The garden is lovely and well within walking distance to the village and restaurants. All very safe. We were very unlucky to have a very loud, very rowdy group staying the same night we were there. Massive party with loud music till very late at night and talking throughout the night so if we managed two hours'... More

Spacious cottages with all the basics for self catering. Renovations were underway when we were there which were disruptive and challenging for the staff. Once completed, this is a lovely place at reasonable prices. The ceramic fireplace was a bonus. Very friendly and accommodating staff.

Great for 5-6 family members for a nice price. The setting inside is warm and lovely, with a small cute fireplace. There is some smell at the bathroom. First night was terrible, they took care of that immediately after we complained, but still not perfect for the sensitive ones. Other than that it was perfect!
