Stayed as a last minute thing and wished it had been longer, the welcome was warm and the accommodation was top notch, don't go to a hotel in jozi go to a guesthouse. The beds were firm, the security was very good, good range of TV and the outdoor social areas where a plus too. Reasonable rates over hotels and... More

That's how Margaret made us feel. The rooms were well furnished, kitchen well equipped, beds comfortable, everything just right. Add the great view from our room (Mbala) and Margaret helping out with what to do, even printing out a ticket for the City Sightseeing bus that I had purchased on-line and you have a wonderful stay

My husband and I loved the serene atmosphere, the warm welcome we received from Margaret was spectacular. The room was fully equipped and clean, with free wifi to top it all. We didn’t want to leave the next morning. We’ll definitely be coming back for a weekend couples stay. Thank you Margaret.

We arrived for only one night and Margaret could not have been more helpful in settling our party of 7 into our rooms, helping us to find a restaurant and generally making us feel welcome and comfortable. The rooms were very spacious and the breakfast and kitchen gear were all good. Thanks Margaret from your australian friends.

Margaret, Quentin, their poodles, and the actual unit we stayed in were problem-free and very homey. We stayed in the Jabulani unit. The most memorable things... More

Awesome, thank you for taking the time to write such an amazing review.

A wonderful place to stay, friendly hosts, clean, comfortable rooms, safe and very pet friendly! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, wish it could have been longer. Our Pug had a wonderful time and we never had to worry about her safety. Looking forward to our next visit.
