“AWESOME PEOPLE AWESOME PLACE”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2010

We looked for something that was local and that was not going to eat our budget. We were a family of 8 and immediately we had the best service. Wisdom (AKA Monchis) picked us up at the airport and went beyond his call of duty. We were in town for the World Cup and between him and Collins the Manager at the house we couldnt have experienced a better lodging. Their Breakfast, Massage Chair, Curtosy was what welcomed us to South Africa. This is a home away from home. There is a local bar up the street and you can arrange with Collins outings you may wish to have. This was the first place we stayed at in S.A and we were blessed to have dealt with such great people! YOU are in AFRICA live with the locals and you will have a Grand experience. All of us give this place 8 thumbs up!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2010

I chose to stay at this "hotel" because I thought it was near the airport and advertised free airport pickup. Boy was I disappointed when we turned into the gated drive of not much more than a house on an isolated residential street what seemed far away from anything. While the room was ok, there was nothing nearby, no shops, restaurants, anything within what seemed like a safe walking distance.

Their website plainly shows Free airport pickup. But it doesn't say ONLY if you book directly with them. And, oh, yea... but NOT free RETURN to the airport. Lame.

No wifi or internet at all in the rooms. At least they were nice enough to let me use the reception computer to skype for a few minutes.
