Very comfortable room with large shower and deck. Hosts were very friendly and helpful, recommended good restaurants nearby and collected goods for us. Ralph also amended our bookings date at late notice without an additional fee - much appreciated. Great breakfasts and attention to the small things make a difference. Not entirely comfortable with Balinese style "open" shower, but thoroughly... More

Went to Nelspruit on business and was booked into this place for 2 nights. What can I say! Excellent service from the host Ralph and the beautiful Charlene. Very friendly, "behulpsaam" (helpful, it just sounds better in Afrikaans!). Very clean grounds, the sparkling blue pool looked very inviting. I took my bike along and was once again kindly assisted by... More

We stayed at Mariu for 6 nights. On arrival we were offered to upgrade our room to a wonderful room with balcony. Location is great and safe, ideal for visiting the Kruger Nationalpark. Room was very clean and tidy. Ralph amd Charlene were wonderful hosts, always helping out with ideas! We loved this place!

We stayed just for 1 night before taking a flight and after ten days in kruger. We were a couple and 2 friends. It is a very comfortable place with very nice rooms. Very good value for money. Situated in a condo-style area (there is no downtown in this city) around 5 min by car to restaurants... Recomended

Ralph kindly rescued me when I had to extend my stay in Nelspruit and could not extend my reservation in the B&B I was staying at. I felt immediately at home thanks to his and Charlene's great hospitality. They are both extremely pleasant and resourceful. I loved the renovated room, which I found extremely beautiful and functional. Breakfast was also... More
