Hennie and Sandra welcomed us into their beautiful home after a horrible day on the road (11hour road trip covering a mere 400km due to two major accidents on the N3 north). Their warmth, sympathy and friendly faces were all we needed, but Sandra cooked us a gourmet meal with delicious desert and their company made me feel like we were staying over with old family friends. Absolutely loved the little extra something special given to every guest (little gifts and lovely teas and body washes to take home). Something that impressed me even more, was their "green" attitude with most of their electrical appliances being eco-friendly and energy saving, as well as the recycling of all organic waste! It was such an awesome experience that I am recommending this a must-stop when passing by... Very easy to find (close to highway) and such a pleasure!!
