The moment we arrived, I could tell this was a healing, restorative place. Set on the canal/lagoon, it's ideal for wetlands lovers. We stayed in the Stone Cottage. I thought I would be disappointed that the treetop and boat house were booked, but it turned out that we loved the stone cottage and probably would have preferred it anyway. It was the best for us, because it is one of the only rooms where you can get the WiFi signal--and it was a great signal! Actually one of the best internet connections we've had in South Africa. The cottage felt luxurious, like our own private retreat. It is huge, and even has a second bedroom! The bathroom has both a large (honestly large) shower with a separate soaking tub. There are even two sinks for his/hers. The bedding is lovely. Decor is pan-African and very tasteful. The cottage has its own private courtyard with a little pond with frogs and a table and chairs to enjoy it all too. The night sounds from the frogs are magical. Some might not like them, but I love the sounds of frog croaks. There were no bugs in spite of being surrounded by wetlands. I can't say enough good about this place. It is truly ideal. Service is genuinely warm, friendly, personable, and professional. If you deserve a break, this is it! Also, they recommend super places to eat including the "Girls" restaurant in town. If you are foodies be sure to browse through the guest information booklet in your room for some very good tips throughout the Garden Route :-)
