Many, many thanks to Ute and Felix for making us so welcome. First class accommodation and extremely relaxing. Sabie is a lovely town. Cindy and Ian are very lucky to live a little closer (few thousand miles closer) than we do.

A very pleasant stay at the start of this South Africa trip. Felix and Ute are outstanding hosts, going out of their way to make guests feel at home. Comfortable rooms and bathrooms. Very nice breakfast, served on the terrace with a view on the lush garden. An unexpected extra: Felix has his own roast of coffee .... wonderful.

I visited The Guest House Villa Ticino in Sabi MP for 3 days on the 5th to the 8th of July 2013. It was a pleasure to stay there with the friendly Host Ute & Felix. The Cleanliness, gave me the first impression when I entered the House.

We stayed in Villa Ticino for 4 nights. It's a beautiful renovated villa that has spacious and comfortable rooms. Furthermore, you can use the balcony and two large 'living rooms' (including a small bar where you can take your own drinks) with a fireplace to read a book or just hang out.The owners, Felix and Ute, are extremely helpful and...

On our trip to Kruger Park we stayed for 2 nights at the wonderful guesthouse of Ute and Felix. It was absolutely amazing. Clean rooms, superb breakfast - who says men can't cook ;-)) - and also the knowledge of Felix about the Panorama Route was great. We can absolutely recommend this place for your stay.

Felix and Ute run an extremely pleasurable guest house with a great deal of character. Felix is a fountain of knowledge about the Panorama Route, even down to the times when best to visit the various points. Even with his advice we found it very difficult to fit everyhting in so would suggest doing it over two days, but an... More
