A beautiful haven in J'burgh... Dawie and his wife are excellent hosts and treat you like life-long friends. The rooms are perfect and Dawie is extremely helpful and will provide any service, including transport to attractions and to and from the airport/bus station. Nothing is too much trouble. Totally recommended!!!
