What a wonderful place, filled with so much natural beauty. The accomodation is set amongst the shongweni valley, the birds, the atmosphere and the overall ambiance is a place one should not miss! Sue, her mother & Tyrone were hospitable, helpful and made us feel very comfortable in our home fr two nights!

I bought a voucher from daddy's deal for a two night stay and was really disgusted with the lodge. As soon as we drove into the lodge we knew we made a very big mistake coming here. When we were shown to our room we were even more disappointed. The room was tiny and the bathroom was so tiny and... More

My partner and I love nature, so this was a beautiful place to visit to take time out of the busy lives we lead. We had a chalet close to the river. How peaceful it was to hear the sound of the river every morning and night. The sounds that the birds made was absolutely magnificent. Unfortunately the weather was... More

We had the great time, out of the city and all chilled; though the weather wasn't so great but we did enjoy our stay... The hosts are all bubbly and caring - Sue and the rest of the crew keep up the good work, we will surely consider tree house when we coming to Durban. Regards, Thokozile

What a beautiful place... We had such a great time. Sue, you are the best! Perfect location to break away! The two days felt like a week. And we fell in love with Snowy and Patches! My husband and I cannot wait to visit again!

The Lodge Chalets are trendy and tastefully designed and cosy.The food is mostly home grown and healthy just like Mom made mmmm.Unfortunately it rained for most of our stay and there fore could not do some exploring . Definitely a good stop over on your travels close to main Highway to DN and GP

I would like to say we really enjoyed our stay at the Treehouse River Lodge, as is the norm there will be some problems that can arise at any time. We were the couple staying in the unit when the stairs broke, but this happens, also our TV was broken as well, and was replaced immediately. Breakfast was great and... More
