Unfortunately we only stayed for one night, but we really enjoyed it. My wife especially loved the dogs and feeding the birds out of her hand at breakfast. She also couldn't stop talking about how friendly and informative our hosts were.

We had a wonderful stay here last year. Fantastic hosts, lovely property and great value for money. Would definitely recommend and would happily return. The honesty bar was a nice touch and breakfast was delicious.

When we arrived we had a very friendly welcome and once luggage was deposited we had a lovely chat with the lady who also gave us a map of the area and recommended us places to see and restaurants to visit etc. Our room was pretty and well equipped, done out in a seaside theme. The breakfast was really good... More

The way we were welcomed by Penny, the way break-fast was laid out, the rooms every thing was absolutely perfect. The... More

We booked into their 'self catering' cottage, paid a 50% deposit of R820 via Credit Card, and when we arrived we were directed to a dungeon of a room, built under the main house. We arrived at 14h30, to find that the cleaners were still busy in the room, and were advised by Penny the manageress that it was because... More

Dave Dave, Please get your facts right. How could you have emailed us on the 25th of April, while you were only arriving the 29th of April? And we refunded you the 5th of May and emailed you accordingly, but you apparently you do not read your emails on a daily basis, since we received your 'attorney threat' a day... More

The room we had was large and comfortable and the pool area was great for chilling. The views and garden were beautiful. Its... More
