The house is in a good position - right on the mountain. We had a good day swimming in the pool and saw a whole troop of baboons passing by and many beautiful Cape Sugarbirds in the garden. Unfortunately the rooms and bathrooms were disappointing - very tacky, the upstairs room facing the garden was stuffy and the mattress and pillows were extremely uncomfortable. It was such a beautiful evening but we were forced to cook indoors. We wanted to have a braai but were told that the grid had rusted away and there was no wood (despite there being a whole pile outside our bathroom window). The place is definitely not 4 star accommodation and not worth the price. Overall we were disappointed with the experience and will definitely not be going back!
