Hi Chris, Unfortunately we cannot accommodate you on the dates you require but we could do in 29th September 2014 and out 3rd October 2014. We can serve your breakfast on the balcony where you would be on your own. We do not do dinner but there are lots of good restaurants in the town. We give a full introduction to the area and the activities on arrival and there is plenty to see and do.The cost for the two of you would be R940 per night. Best Regards Colin & Colleen
