Spent one night here and really was impressed. Lovely comfortable room. Everything was spotlessly clean and the bed very comfortable. The owners were very friendly and helpful. They arranged a boat ride on the lake for us and, because we had to leave early, kindly organised a lovely packed breakfast. Certainly would return.

Stayed 4 nights over Easter in March 2016. Modern one-bedroom bungalow accommodation in private garden setting. Can’t fault the place. Clean and stylish. Onsite parking available. Well organised and run by friendly and well-informed Joyce. Highly recommended.

. . . it's no surprise to learn that Joyce and Marcel spent five years designing and refining this wonderful guest house. . . it wants for nothing! Beyond that they are incredibly knowledgeable and can help you sketch out the perfect itinerary; their advice about the early morning cruise on the estuary was exactly what we wanted and the...

We stayed 3 nights with Joyce and Marcel in this truly wonderful guesthouse. Our room chalet-style, was perfect. A big very comfortable bed, open plan bathroom with good lighting and a great eye for detail in the decor, everything matched, was well balanced and gave the room a very good quiet atmosphere. We slept like never before! They are great... More

A gorgeous little B & B, rooms are spacious and bed is large. No tv but a/c. Lovely bathroom. Breakfast is wonderful with a beautifully laid out table with more than you can eat plus hot breakfast. A little pricey but possibly this is because it is a tourist town and perhaps all establishments are the same. Well worth a... More

Lovely decorated room with a small private terrace. Mini bar well stocked and owners take time to talk you through the activities in the area. The guest house is located at the far end of the town which wouldn't have been an issue but due to Hippos walking around at night, it was a bit dangerous to walk into town.... More

The breakfast was excellent one of the best we have had . The owner Joyce was very helpful and gave us a wonderful briefing of what to do when we arrived. The... More

Joyce and Marcel run an excellent guest house providing a relaxed atmosphere with spot on recommendations for local activities. We thoroughly enjoyed our sunset excursions by boat and on land. Breakfast was delicious and the staff were friendly Everyone went out of their way to make our stay more comfortable when my husband arrived with recently fractured his ribs.

Afrikhaya is a lovely little Guest House with just 5 rooms. The rooms are comfortable with very nice bathrooms, mini-safe and stocked mini-bar and each with a private terrace. The only negative I could possibly have would be the pillows, which are all foam-rubber and about as bouncy as a trampoline. Joyce and Marcel, the owners are extremely hospitable and... More
