Like everyone else says....Zoë & Huw make the perfect hosts. The whole process from when you arrive to leaving makes you feel relaxed and respected. There is a warm and friendly welcome, guidance about activities in the area, suggestions for restaurants (where your experience and interests are taken into account not always the case!). Definitely the best in the area I reckon.
Ostrich farm was fun and a bit bonkers, Jemina's restaurant provided delicious food (although the staff training at the time didn't make for the best service!), we had some local beer, local wine and spent a great day driving along the unsealed roads viewing the great scenery.
The rooms are immaculately clean, verandah private and there is parking close/secure. A firm huge bed, air conditioning and decent curtains provided the right environment to get a great nights sleep. The lovely pool was bigger than expected, and the breakfasts huge and tasty (after a full English on day one we didn't eat again until dinner). Location is perfect to park up and walk around the town to relax.
We really enjoyed chatting about the country, culture and small businesses. We hope to be back soon. In fact we might even move to SA!
