This place really did something to me. Felt at home from the very first minute! It's situated in an amazing location on the coast in very close proximity of the beach. Dolphins and whales (if you happen to come in the right season) come by on a regular base and it's spectacular to see them play out in the waves.
Staff is very nice and you can order tasty food from their kitchen. They're doing an amazing job in keeping the place look beautiful and make you feel comfortable at their place. I love sleeping in a rondavel!!! The toilets and showers have great mosaic!!
Definitely a place I'll be coming back to!!! It's a paradise! Thanks for sharing your amazing place!!!
