This is the place to go when you want to get out of the rat race. A weekend away or just a weeks holiday will get you re-energized. I would definitely consider coming back again for a holiday and recommend it to anyone looking for a romantic holiday or just a break from the city.

We stayed here for 3 days and loved the natural surroundings, sitting on the verandah, having a spa and visiting the local area. The bed is very comfortable. The kitchen has everything you need to cook with and... More

The photos don't really do this amazing place justice, the cabin is fitted out with all the luxury inclusions and the double person spa over looking the gorgeous view makes you feel like you are part of the rich and famous but in total seclusion (no paparazzi in sight) :) The hosts are lovely and even a short stay is...

The food was lovely, especially the Kenilworth cheese on arrival and the bubbles (plus beautiful bacon, eggs, bread and fruit for breakfast). Thank you Tanya. We only had time for one night in the Spring View Cabin, which was perfectly set up for making our own dinner on the BBQ. Remember your bug spray for the evenings. Wish we had... More

We were in search of somewhere that was quiet for a couple of days of complete rest and relaxation and found Melawondi to be ideal. It is beautifully set up, impeccably clean and in a rural setting devoid of distracting noise such as cars and planes. We did do some exploring around the region, but it was wonderful to come...
