What an amazing place! The owners, Albert and Sue, have built (themselves) a number of cabins on their bush property, and made everything themselves. Every cabin is unique, and has its own name. Made with sustainable materials, and run with a highly efficient, eco-friendly system, this place is a real treat. The shower in our cabin - what a piece... More

I originally stayed here with family 8 years ago and decided to take my husband along this time when visiting the area. These owners have taken such care to craft a truly unique experience that you won't get anywhere else in the world. Albert and Sue (and all the dogs!) were so helpful and accommodating especially when organising the stay... More

We stayed here for a few nights while visiting the attractions around The Crags, including Birds of Eden, Monkeyworld, Jukani and Tenikwa - it's very well located for all of them and they're all excellent and definitely worth a visit. We stayed in 'Butterfly Cottage' which was a fun and enjoyable place to stay for our family. The children had... More

Thanks so much for your comprehensive review. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay at Moon Shine. Couple of comments from our side ...

The owner built the cabins himself, we stayed in a cabin named Fly Me To The Moon Forest Cabin". It is built partially with recycled material, the water comes from a water... More

The cosy cabins are beautifully build and hidden between the trees in the woods. The hosts are most kinds and they made our stay very pleasant. Passionate about nature, saving water, electricity, recycling, etc. Wonderful philosophy.

We stayed in bush pig. Beautiful basic cabin on stilts in the trees completely in tune with nature. Rustic decor in a charming cabin. The cabin is very private standing by itself in the woods with an outdoor balcony. Somewhere to relax and be in tune with nature. Beautiful birdsong with the occasional sighting. Delightful walk to a waterfall -... More
