Peaceful and very homely. They provide divine three course meals and "I miss their potato soup" The owner has magic hands for massages. Chalets are cosy, very clean and neat; overlooking a small river. I experienced the most amazing world class service and looking forward to my next visit.

A fantastic outdoors experience whilst being indoors in a thatched cottage surrounded by nature. Only a few cottages are built on the stand and blends uniquely in with the environment. It creates a very cozy family type atmosphere, and still the cottages are apart in distance enough to ensure privacy with a touch of warmth. The Yreehouse River Lodge is... More

Although our room did not have a grill area, we were welcomed to use the grill at the main house. Whether your room comes equipped or not, the owners make... More

We were definitely deceived by the reviews, photos and price of this accommodation. The chalets were equivalent to backpackers except 5 time the price. The carpets in the chalet were dirty, the duvets had stains, the pillows had hair on them,there were dead ants all over the bed and the shower was covered in mold. There are no facilities on... More
