You'd have to go a long way to find a place as welcoming, fun and generally relaxed as this. Superb rooms, and a unique setting - you feel like you are in a secluded jungle cabin. Janie and Gordon are the perfect hosts. I hope we get the chance to come here again and again.

Room Tip: We were in pampas, but all the rooms are lovely.

We had the best time at Bamboo Guesthouse, the place was breathtaking, the rooms and decor very comfortable and beautiful to say the least. Breakfast was amazing and hosts were just great, we had a really great time here and wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you!

"Breathtaking, comfortable, beautiful, amazing, great...." - adjectives that both inspire all at Bamboo and mesh well with the vibe and aura we endeavour to shroud our guests in! Many thanks to you for being a part of the whole Bamboo experience!

This was our first time to Bamboo and we loved it. Our forest cabin and the pathways and lush vegetation surrounding it were fantastic. We enjoyed the special touches, especially the fire lit for us in our room, so that we could come back to a wonderful warm room after an evening out. The hosts were so welcoming and went out of their way to make our stay special. The eggs benedict and special breakfasts were delicious....I'd highly recommend Bamboo for an all-round wonderful time.

Bamboo's Forest Cabin is indeed a special and cozy experience. As with anything it is the small personal touches that are most appreciated.......we are thrilled to hear that you too enjoyed Bamboo's efforts in this regard. Hopefully your first visit shall not be your last!

I've stayed at Bamboo many times over the past 3 years and every time I have trouble leaving. The food is always good – whether it’s breakfast or the always scrumptious dinner shared with the other guests/new friends over a glass of red wine. My last stay was in the ‘Forest Cabin’ and I’m totally in love with the quaint, romantic cabin with its own fireplace and beautiful little deck. I really like that it’s not your usual guest house experience – it’s an opportunity to reconnect with nature (with all the luxuries a city girl needs). Thanks for always welcoming me as a friend and treating me like royalty - looking forward to my next visit !

The Bamboo belongs in the top class of weekend get-aways for couples. Having found it so easily via the Internet we were completely bowled over when we saw how luxurious our chaleis was. The staff seem to stop at nothing to make the stay the most enjoyable out of all possible venues. Well done for the venue but even more for the staff who make you feel you were the centre of their universe. Well done and the very best wishes to you and we'll definitely come back!
