We stayed at Akadmie Street on the recommendation of the travel company who organised our recent holiday in South Africa. Although we only had a two night stay there, everything was perfect, from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. Centrally located in a quiet street and few minutes walk to the main street where there are a plethora of shops and eateries.The staff were warm and welcoming and Anna the house dog also greeted us warmly! Our cottage, we were told, was the smallest accomodation they had to offer! To us it was palatial! Our own private grounds, small pool, sunbeds, veranda, easy chairs, settee..the list goes on and on. Our room was large and airy and had the biggest bed I've ever seen.....a well stocked fridge, all without charge, and a well equiped kitchen area should we have wanted to boil an egg! Our laundry was all done swiftly, and again, with no charge. Breakfasts were excellent and all delivered personally to our table, no buffet style breakfast here! The fresh fruit platters and smoothies were amazing. At the end of our stay we we were asked to fill in a form that requested ideas for how Akademie could be improved. We left it blank as in our opinion it is just perfect. We only have one small complaint......we didnt stay long enough! A truly special place and perfect in every way.
