“Offers everything you want as a traveller: amazing value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012 via mobile

We stayed only two nights in this beautiful house, the night before and after our safari, but enjoyed it very much. The atmosphere is very good, the familylike kitchen is amazing, there is a nice lounge-area and a nice garden with swimmingpool and beds, thea and coffee for breakfast and the bathroom is huge and comfortable. At the time only Freddie was there from the staff and he was very helpful in advizing on public transport, nice places to visit in Joburg etc. He made us laugh a lot, was friendly all the time and really made us feel like if we were at home. Something that is worth a lot while travelling!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

It's not near some areas but no where in Joburg is. It's really close to a great minibus taxi stop, and very easy to get back to. Lots of close restaurants and Kim was amazingly helpful in future travel plans that weren't something he got paid for. Some try to sell you a tour, he just tries to make your trip great. I will be staying there again on my next trip to Joburg.
