I don't even know where to start to describe our stay in Utopia in Africa. Firstly I stayed here with my parents who are elderly and none of us ever wanted to leave. The guest house is at the end of a very quiet street not far from Nelspruit airport, yet it is so quiet! They have quite tame Bush... More

I cannot praise this wonderful guest house highly enough. It is set in beautiful countryside overlooking a nature reserve. It is tastefully appointed yet has a feeling of a welcoming home. The rooms are comfortable and clean, each one different and uniquely furnished with unexpected, delightful works of art and paintings created by the owners. I stayed for four weeks... More

From the service to the unique beautiful rooms that all have their own balconies- "in the trees" on overlooking the gorge. The breakfasts are intimate and delicious. But it is the tranquillity and part of nature feel that seals the deal. Feed the... More

Great place with a spectacular view. I suggest upgrading the the king room to get the amanzing balcony and view. Considering what you get, it good value. The room is just beautiful. No TV in room, but was not an issue for me.

A beautiful and relaxing retreat. Wonderful attention to detail with tasteful colourful art creations of the owners throughout. Set in the hills above Nelspruit with tremendous views to eat breakfast. We were made to feel very welcome.

I can only be positive about this guesthouse. It was our favorite during our 3 week South Africa round trip. Nice atmosphere, friendly owner, lovely and spacious room with comfortable bed and bathroom, tasty breakfast and beautiful view from the deck.
