Very goog guest house with the perfect location where one can easily access both graskop for all the tourist attractions and hazyview for a bit of urban lifestyle. The view on the balcony is also tantalizing.

We found a riendly welcome and a clean house. The rooms were big enough and each room has an own toilet and shower. Wifi was working, which is in general not always the case! Children would have stay longer in this house.

Good matress, comfortable and warm bedlinnen, a wooden floor, space, wifi, large bathroom, everything we needed after a long journey to get there. Anne gave us a very warm welcome, even after we made a lot of changes... More

Forest view Guest house provided us with exceptional service and a super clean room. They might consider upgrading to aircons in the rooms as the wall mounted heater struggled to heat up the room during the winter nights.

Nice appartement, full equipment. Every sleeping-room has a little own bathroom, small, but enough. Clean in a nice surrounding with a very helpful owner. Car-parking close to the house on the private area- seems sure! We´ll come back!

Very comfortable stay in the vibrant and well kept town of Sabie. Pleasantly surprised by the quality and quantity on offer in the town. The guest house is within walking distance from most venues and shops and on the main route towards the lowveld.

Clean and certainly spacious for eating and living. Recommended. Lots of room for our group of 13. A bit cold but the rooms did have heaters in them for sleeping. Easy access and close to some restraints.
