My partner and I chose Thandekayo at the last minute, after we'd found some accommodation elsewhere was somewhat less good than promised. We called up and asked if they could fit us in - it turned out they could, but we'd have to switch rooms during the stay due to pre-existing bookings.
The owner, Anita suggested that as we were already close by that we came and checked out the accommodation they had available, to make sure we would be happy with what was on offer at Thandekayo.
We were warmly greeted by their live-in house manager, Banda, who comes from Malawi, and were very happy with what we saw - we decided then and there to move our stuff in from the car!
It was a very pleasant and comfortable stay. The shared lounge area has a fantastic view over the valley, and covered in Martin's fantastic photography, it's the backdrop to your freshly prepared breakfast served by Banda and his wife Janet in the morning, or when unwinding with a drink later in the day.
Even getting a bit of laundry done was no problem. Banda just got it sorted, and looked after whatever we needed.
A very relaxing and pleasant experience indeed...
