Very pleasant and comfortable stay. Enjoyed a great breakfast and got all excited spotting "The Opera" in the harbour! Gary is friendly and helpful and we will surely make use of their services in future.

After a misunderstanding about my booking was sorted out, had a wonderful stay. Was on a course at Entabeni and wanted somewhere close to stay. It was walking distance.

We stayed a few nights here over Christmas time. I am very glad we chose this spot as the hosts made us feel like their friends - they were helpful and very jovial! It definitely feels like we were staying with friends rather than at some unfamiliar place. The lodge itself is not luxurious, but it is very well kept.... More
