“Perfect location, awesome owner”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

My wife and I stayed here due simply to the location as we were flying out of MQP early the next morning. All we needed was a clean room and got so much more. The room was immaculate with a really nice bathroom and shower, the tea area among the trees was very pleasant, and the views from seats set up just at the top of the cliff can't be beat.

And of course, I can't say enough about Susann. If all she had done was greet us when we got in late and help us to pack some food for our trip in the morning it would have warranted a 5 star review. However, on the security line at the airport I realized my hat that I've worn for 12 years was missing. We later figured out I'd left it at the restaurant down the road from the While House, and tried to have them mail it back to me. After failing at this, I emailed Susann who gladly picked my hat up from the restaurant and mailed it to me in NY (and wouldn't take any money from me for the shipping!).

I can't thank her enough for this, I just wish she could have seen how happy I was to finally put it back on my head!

We received such a warm welcome at the lodge situated very central to locations in the low veld we wanted to visit. The rooms are modern and very clean with attention to smaller detail. It was so relaxing to enjoy a well presented breakfast in a serene environment. We enjoyed our stay.

We found White House Lodge to be great value for money for a family. Susann and Detlef are the perfect hosts and absolutely hands-on, giving real personal service. Also loved the coffee machine and honesty bar.

Rooms are very nice decorated and the view at night with the sound of nature is fantastic. Everything was very clean and a good breakfast.
