Under our own pergola just outside our room. Relaxing there only steps to the welcoming pool we appreciated the meticulous garden ....even ripening pomegranates in view. Our room felt colonial and exotic ,clean with a very comfortable bed. Breakfast could be taken on the patio or in the tastefully decorated main house.... Lots of antiques ....but not stuffy .

Traditional African setting in a lovely garden. We were greeted by a maid who didn't really have much information. Sue, the owner, is very nice and helpful, when there. Good location and very handy for Addo which is why we stayed there.

We spent three nights at this comfortable guest house in February on our three week tour of South Africa. Sue was most welcoming and attended to all our requests and bookings for dinner at nearby restaurants. The locality is very rustic with agriculture/fruit growing the main source of income. We did enjoy an escorted game drive with Conor at Addo... More

From our first booking, our numerous changes to our final farewell, Geralds Gift was an unforgettable experience. Friendly, accommodating and infinitely patient, the staff welcomed us like long lost family and ensured that every wish and whim was met. Yvonne went out of her way to advise on choices of restaurants, strolls in the country side and other local attractions.... More

We could not have wanted for a better location, accomodation or hospitality from the owners and their staff. Gerald'd Gift is the perfect base for the area or for a relaxing day, the grounds with a pool means the whole day can easily be spent there.

We stayed two nights at Gerald's Gift Guesthouse. Very clean and large rooms, large garden with pool, great breakfast, and very great care. We enjoyed the proximity of the Addoparks. Good restaurant recommendations with reservation. Sue takes care of everything. We'll be back. Thank you Sue!
