Great people and great service. The breakfast was amazing!!! The property is great for nature lovers and has a nice hiking trail. The rooms are very spacious and most of the furniture made by the owner. I was very impressed and will definitely be staying there again.

The decor of the family room (giraffe) we stayed in was modern rustic.. It kind of screamed "Africa"...loved that. Breakfast was excellent! Portions were huge and different... More

We were three ladies that stayed here for the weekend of the Durban July. I've never received such great service from a bed and breakfast. Attention was paid even to the smallest details. Superb breakfast! I would highly recommend this place to anybody!
