What a fantastic guesthouse! Could not have chosen a better place to stay. Located in a quiet neighborhood, adjacent to a nature reserve. Beautiful layout of the property, individual units and not door-to-door with your with other guests. Stunning wild garden with lots of big boulders. Unit was spic and span, spacious, well designed and decorated with love. Thank you... More

Everything in this guest House is exquisite: the architecture, the forms and colours, the decoration, the gardens and verandas, the private and common areas, up to the food! Everything is well thought of: functional, aesthetic and in harmony. Comfort is of essence and the service is a main concern of the owners and of the manager. I have been particularly... More

Very well located in quiet residential area of ​​Nelspruit, with a beautiful garden and a splendid terrace. The room was clean and well decorated. Delicious breakfast. Internet acess must be improved because is very slow and unstable. Nice staff. Everything else was excellent.

We stayed in a standard room, it was quite expensive we thought (1100) for a room that wasnt anything special, really. Room was super cold in june, but its the case everywhere in Nelspruit. On the upside, a very clean room and a very good breakfast. I believe the nice rooms are the 'luxury' ones with valley view.

I stayed at La Roca for one night while on my way up to Kruger National Park. Unfortunately we got stuck in traffic (due to there being a crash on the highway) so I didn't get to the property until very late at night. Thankfully the property owners arranged for us to check into our room when we arrived with... More

We had initially planned to stay 2 nights at Berg-en-Dal Rest Camp in Kruger National Park to finish our trip to South Africa but the chalet we had at Berg-en-Dal was dirty, dark and not what we had expected after being at Lower Sabie, Satara & Shimuwini on the same trip. This was not the way we wanted to end... More

We stayed in March and were immediately given an upgraded room with a balcony and beautiful view over immaculate gardens. The pool and breakfast area are lovely and the breakfast was superb.
