Stayed in the cottage which was incredibly clean, sweet smelling and looked out on a beautiful garden. We were made to feel very welcome by our charming host Lionel. Since we were in the Cottage we were provided with all the ingredients for a lavish breakfast. The only drawback was that I had to cook it myself which was a... More

My partner and I stayed in the cottage at Moon Gate very recently. The cottage is charming, very comfortable with high quality chattels, and made all the more lovely by the wonderful hosts/owners (who are thoughtful and kindly, informative, and generous with their time). The cottage is in lovely grounds (along with the main house) and it was a delight... More

We recently stayed 4 nights at the garden cottage at Moongate Villa and didn't want to come back to real life! The cottage itself was so sweet but with every comfort carefully thought out by friendly hosts Lionel & Rob... The garden setting is beautiful and so secluded... Although you're minutes from Keri Keri centre on the main road you'd... More

Moon Gate Villa is set in beautiful landscaped sub tropical gardens. You feel so relaxed away from the hustle and bustle of city life from the time you arrive at the impressive entrance to walking out from your room into the beautifully maintained gardens. We were in the Premium suite which was very comfortable and clean with a walk in... More

We were welcomed initially with a blackboard by the front door with our names on it. The foyer has a wonderful water feature which lights up when dark. The hosts Rob and Lionel are lovely and nothing is too much trouble. We stayed in the cottage which is very cosy and well equipped. The continental breakfast basket is a bonus.... More
