Excellent family getaway spot. We extended or trip two extra nights because of my family's reaction on arrival. Most eco-friendly guest house I have stayed at in South Africa. All water in the houses is captured rain water.

We stayed two nights in Tree Frog. Such a great experience. The cabin stole our hearts and we enjoyed every moment. The cabin has the most amazing view and to be so close to nature was a big privilege. It is a great spot if you wish to explore the area. There is a lot to see and do around... More

Thank you, thank you Roelof. We are constantly amazed by how much this area has to offer, it certainly wasn't like that when we started off 16 years ago! Glad you enjoyed, and hope to see you again soon. Regards Sue and Albert More

My wife and I spent 5 wonderful days in the garden cottage - very peaceful, very romantic, beautifully designed. A great base to explore the surrounding natural wonders, or just chill by the lovely pool and admire the glorious scenery. Sue and Albert were great hosts, and we will be back again!!

My husband and I stayed here with our 3 small children over New Year. We stayed in Butterfly cabin. The cabin was very well equipped and we enjoyed the large patio and garden. The kids loved the communal pool and playground area and we spent many a happy afternoon here. The hosts could not have done enough for us. It... More

Thank you so, so much for your wonderful review. You can't imagine how important this kind of feedback is for us. Regarding the servicing of the units, we have considered increasing our staff, and thereby our rates, to accommodate this, but frankly there just has not been enough of a call for it. We have had the same staff for... More

We spent several days and nights in the Firefly cabin. A romantic cabin close to the forest. Sue and Albert are friendly hosts and gave us a lot of information about the area around. We will come back. :-)

We spent the weekend at our log cabin the bush pig, what a place to stay. Our cabin was beautifully crafted and well placed for privacy, the bird life was great where we had the opportunity to be visited on several occasions by a Knysna Loerie. We were welcomed by Albert on arrival and shown around on what to do... More

In the middle of the forest, in a green and peaceful area, alone with nothing around you - this is how we spent the night and it was just great. Clean and very well equipped cabins, amazing owners that doing everything they can for you and clear sky with thousands of stars. Simply perfect experience.

We spent two nights in Firefly and the cabin had all the basic necessities for a self catering stay. Breakfasts were enjoyed on the small deck overlooking the forest below and the wood burner was put to good use during the chilly July evenings. A walk down to the waterfall through the forest is an absolute must! Hosts were very... More

My teenage daughter and I stayed in Butterfly cottage. Unfortunately the owners were away so business-sitters were taking care of guests. Our cottage was clean and well equipped on arrival, but we never received the wood we asked for, and the business sitters did not know the area as well to advise us on where to go, but we knew...
