“A wonderfully hospitable, comfortable stay in an incredible setting.”
Reviewed April 30, 2010

Our hosts Emma and Anton (a charming couple) made us feel instantly at home in a very relaxed setting, As this is a fairly new set up there are still a few things that need to be sorted out - e.g. there are no cupboards for clothes in the bedrooms and, whilst we realise that most people stay for a very short while, it would help for those staying longer. We gathered that they were thinking about putting cupboards in so this may have changed. The rooms are very comfortable, the food was excellent, the walks good with wonderful birds and the closeness to St Lucia ,Hluhluwe and Umfolosi and False Bay parks make this an ideal place to stay while wanting to visit the game reserves. We're due to go back again soon and will recommend this to all our friends.

Many thanks for your review. Just a note to say the rooms do have packing space for clothes and we are busy adding hanging space too. - Emma
