We spent nearly a week here over New Year's and enjoyed the beautiful garden, pool and gorgeous view. Fabulous breakfast on the terrace including delicious fresh fruit salad. The owners were very helpful in finding a doctor in spite of the holiday, getting special laundry done, and driving us to and from restaurants, even on New Year's Eve! I left a camera at a restaurant in Knysna and Nicole picked it up and mailed it home to me. We regretted having not chosen to stay at Cambalala to do the braai dinner on New Year's Eve as did the rest of the guests. Another night they opened up very nice bottle of wine for us to take out into the nicely furnished open tent pavillion. If I had posted a bit earlier I would have remembered many more nice things!
The rooms are really meant for couples with the bathroom separated from the bedroom only by a pretty transparent bead curtain. It made for a beautiful and light-filled space but it is all very intimate. There is also a guest toilet down the hall. We were friends traveling together and didn't mind but in an even more perfect world we would have preferred something with a bit more privacy.
