What a lovely stay. Clean, neat & well managed. The property is breathtaking. The rooms are cosy and private. The manager/owner has a sparkling personality and kindness that is quite rare these days. Would definitely visit again.

We stayed for five days in a very comfortable, cozy, quiet cottage, situated in a crescent. There was parking available inside. The lovely tree filled garden created a very relaxed atmosphere. All amenities were available. The hosts were friendly, their breakfasts great. They made our stay very pleasant indeed.

The Tree Tops unit was clean, comfortable and thankfully air conditioned. Caroline was very friendly, helpful and accommodating. Close proximity to Cresta Mall. Unfortunately only 1 Dstv channel can be chosen and set in the main house. There is a lovely pool as well.
