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...

Albert and Sue have created a beautiful accommodation - it is a great place to stay while exploring the area. Good for self catering, the tree frog where we stayed has all the basics. Location is perfect, close to Plet, in the forest. It is a romantic, eco-friendly, original place.

We stayed at the Tree Frog Cabin. When you walked out your front door you thought that your in the middle of the trees. The Cabin was big enough for 4 People and you had everything you needed for a self catering weekend. Sue gave us a lot of tips what to do in the area. Especially the Saturday Market... More

We stayed in the Tree Frog cabin for three nights and had the most wonderful time. The cabin was immaculately clean and very well maintained. Little touches like wild flowers on the kitchen counter and good quality linen really enhanced the experience. The cabin has a lovely fireplace which is very effective in heating up the whole cabin and makes... More

We stayed in the Butterfly cottage. We not only enjoyed our spacious and clean set up, but also made use of all the fine established facilities that Moonshine has to offer. Such as, the Swimming pool, Playground and Jacuzzi. From the moment we arrived till our sad departure Sue and Albert made us feel at home. Especially my oldest daughter... More

Peaceful, tranquil, beautiful views, cosy and private cabin set in the thick of the forest. Warm and welcoming owners who made us feel right at home. A little gem in the heart of the Garden Route. Loved the jacuzzi and firewood on our doorstep each morning. Would definately go back! Thank you Albert and Sue!!

From memory we stayed at Frog Tree cottage. This is situated amongst trees and has beautiful views through the trees towards mountains. The property is reasonably well appointed with a nice balcony and even logs and kindling for the log stove was supplied. There was no tea or coffee but in fairness this had been mentioned so mere oversight probably.... More

We've stayed at Moonshine three times now. First as a couple, then as parents with a toddler and recently as a family of four. We in fact detoured quite a way en route to Cape Town in order for the kids to experience it. The kids are now aged 8 and 4 and they loved every second of it, as... More
