Me and my husband had been planning a getaway with our 5year old daughter and my father in law... Thus wanted a place that would cater to all our interests. Jacaranda Estate fit the bill perfectly... As soon as we stepped in we were pleased to see the lovely ambience and our beautiful cottage.... Everything is done up aesthetically and a lot of personal attention has gone in the planning of the place. The staff is very attentive and courteous... I did not encounter any hesitation on their part to carry out any errand though it involved climbing up and down the stairs a number of times for them! The food was very nice and on special request Italian cuisine was dished up one night with minimum fuss along with a delicious dessert!!! The breakfast and dining area is amazing with a perfect outdoor setting right amongst the flowers and trees... What more can one ask for? Left to me I would have loved to spend my days lounging in the hammocks the entire day.... We could not visit tattapani as the weather was hot :(. My father in law enjoyed the treks and the meals and my daughter has come back with a mission to get a dog home thanks to Rocky (the pet dog) who became her playmate and motivation to run around the estate. Last but not the least the trip would not have been half as good if we did not have Rita our gracious and charming hostess giving us company with her helpful suggestions and handy tips... She made our stay extremely comfortable and we look forward to visit her again soon this time with more family and friends!!!!
