Perfect place!!! First of all, because of owners - nice, helpful people! Everything in the hotel is new, there is the big garden, good English breakfast. The owners advised us the good cafes for dinner, it was perfect too. Wanna back again to this place.

In all honesty, I don't know if my husband and I would have stayed here if we didn't have a groupon (50% off). It was convenient because we spent the day at Addo Elephant Park so we didn't have to drive through to PE after our day of sightseeing. The prices are a little steep if you paying full price. And there isn't tv in the bedroom which would have been nice because there isn't much to do in Addo (not that I could see). I freaked out a little because I had to share my shower with a spider and web. But the breakfast was lovely. Lots of food and good. And the car was so dusty from the Elephant Park they even washed it which is included.

Room Tip: My husband and I stayed in the Avocet Room where the bathroom is part of the room (the toilet is sep...

We stayed at Gerald's Gift Guest House during our honeymoon. The first thing I said when we got there was: "Oh wow!!!" and it doesn't really do justice to the beauty of that place! I am uploading some pictures!

Susan is a wonderful hostess, she is incredibly nice and helpful and is also a wonderful cook!! She is a very warm person and we loved talking to her and her husband about our trip, we really felt at home at Gerald's Gift House. Susan arranged a few activities for us (like the elephant-back safari, unforgettable!!) and suggested a few more (btw you MUST visit the Daniell Cheetah Breeding project!).

Susan and her husband have 2 very sweet dogs, if you love dogs like me you'll have a great time playing with them, and if you don't like dogs don't worry, they won't bother you at all! They are very well behaved :-)

Breakfast is simply incredible! Everything is homemade (muffins, cookies, etc.) and absolutely delicious and the portions are very generous! The staff is very nice too.

Our room was beautiful and huge. It was actually a cottage surrounded by high trees and flowers. The first impression I had when we saw our room and the property was that I have just entered in a magical land. Everything was so perfect and romantic! Gerald's Gift has a huge garden, and we haven't seen anything like it during our whole trip!

We spent 4 weeks in SA and stayed in many hotels, guesthouses and b&b. Gerald's Gift is one of the guesthouses we loved the most, so we heartly recommend it! Thank you so much Susan, we really hope to come back some day!

My husband and I stayed at Gerald's Gift for the weekend of the Addo Rose Show. We loved this guest gouse and recommend it very warmly. The spacious, immaculate bedrooms, which all open onto the large manicured garden, are very private. The hosts are charming and discreet and the general organisation and the attention to detail reflect their hands-on management. This is a really special place and we will be back!
