Simply superb...the room, the swimming pool, the breakfast were perfect. We spent only one night in the villa but this stay was unforgatable. Our kids had a bath in the private swimming pool. 5 stars breakfast

Highly Recommended, tranquil. Guest house was on point, fully furnished, beautifully laid with a view to a pool. You wake up on the sounds of birds to a warm home made breakfast, then rest of a beautiful decorated Lapa close to the pool

Great location, excellent accommodation and fantastic service. A memorable stay. Highly recommended. We particularly enjoyed the outdoor patio area with barbecue facilities and swimming pools. The rooms were well appointed and comfortable.

We booked the whole establishment for a family wedding, however management arranged for an outside party to take wedding photo's in the garden without clearing it with us. This party took over the kitchen, toilets and sitting rooms and we even had to recover some of our wedding gifts in the garden. Unfortunately the apology does not take away the... More

Hi Elsa, I know you are mad as hell and rightly so. This incident should never have occurred. I apologised profusely and numerous times and can only continue to do so... I do wish to however put this sad story into perspective for our future guests and business which is our right. A couple of months ago, a young couple... More

The conglomerate of unbelievable location, delightful and helpful hosts and great facilities, made my trip very memorable. Staying for a month meant I encountered several rooms, all of which were immaculate and hugely comfortable. I couldn't recommend a place more highly.

The cottages are charming, luxurious, clean, and exceptionally well maintained. Breakfast is delicious. The hosts are friendly, helpful, and interesting to chat with. Location is great - a few minutes from Malalene gate. What more could you ask for?
