Nestled in a tranquil area of Nelspruit, the guest house offers a unique urban experience. The staff is very friendly, there are great views and environment is quiet. The rooms are wonderfully decorated and fully equipped.

Bathroom was enormous and spotlessly clean. Excellent water pressure in the shower. Breakfast room is located in an upper terrace with a swimming pool and garden views. They have a simple but good...

The best guesthouse in mzansi. If its style, tranquillity and great food you need this is the place to be. I had an awesome time there. Big ups to the owner and staff members. I just love the place. With rush reasonable prices who wouldn't want to go there
