Creative genius design of the cabin's architecture and decor. Really nestled safely and privately in the forest. It feels like you are sleeping and showering in the trees - that you can see everything, but nothing can see you. Perfect size for a couple who cherish time in nature, solitude, peace, rejuvenation and who appreciate the efforts by the owners...

We absolutely loved staying in Moon Shine, everything was perfect, really helpful friendly service. TIP: If you take the really nice walk down through the forest to the river and pool - take bug spray! (there's mozzies) - it's worth it though for the views :) We'll definitely be back to Moonshine, it was nice being a bit out of...

We stayed in the unit "Fly me to the Moon" and I can report that I have been to the moon. The unit is a romantic stay for two people in the canopy of the ingenious forest. Expect shooting stars, glow worms on the forest floor and playing hide and seek with the Knysna Loerie. The view over the trees...

The accommodations were perfect for what we were looking for - a cabin in the woods. For heat, you even build your own fire. Fire wood provided. The bed has a heating blanket also. We stayed 5 nights. The cabin is located near the main highway to get to the Garden Route and back to the cabin. Parking is limited...

My husband and I spent 5 nights here in the special cabin for two during our honeymoon in August 2016. It is the perfect romantic hideaway. There is very little space but the place has everything that you need, amazing views and is close enough so that you can go out for dinner without having to drive too far. Perfect,...

Perfect located, just off the N2 there is this lovely place! We stayed in a tree house and love it a lot! We made a hike in the forest, enjoyed our own braai and woke up with only the sounds of the birds:) the owners are really nice people and we would definitely stay again! Thank you :)

The cabin we stayed in was the simplest one, but it was nice and well-equipped. They provided firewood for the stove, which was helpful since there is no other source of heat. There is hiking on the grounds, so you can step out of your cabin and hike down to the creek and the beautiful waterfall. It was a nice...

Hi there Thanks so much for your honest review. It's not often we get a dressing down about our lovely dogs (in fact yours in the first review of this nature in 17 years!). I am terribly sorry if they disturbed you in any way. They are usually really friendly and well behaved, I can only think that since we...

This place made our Garden Route trip! The bedding was super plush and comfortable and the little extras like the logs for the fire and the home made jam were greatly appreciated. I would love to stay here again.
