David is a wonderful host, friendly and very helpful. The appartement is comfortable enough for a family with 3-4 persons, the kitchen is very well equipped, and everything is very clean. Lovely garden with a little pool.

Excellent....thanks for this lovely revue. Our home looks a lot different now with all our new wall murals which gives our garden area such a lift. More work being done in the rooms by our superbly talented artist Quinton Faro. Hope to see you soon. Bye DAVID

Excellent place to stay with friendly and welcoming owner. Spotless presentation of room. Would highly recommend. Very nice touches throughout the property. The only slight negative would be that its a little bit out of town distance wise.

What a pleasure having you stay with us here in safe and tranquil Montagu South. Being only a slow 10 minute safe walk into our restaurant area, or a 2 minute trip by car allows us to be away from the busy main road from Cape Town, and one does not even hear the noisy large vehicles that create a great deal of noise when braking. Exciting changes made to our Lodge since November....I'm sure to see you again soon. DAVID
