2 Reviews on Bee Eater Self-catering Unit

This was by far the most splendid vacation that I could take my wife to. The staff and owner Anita were so heartwarming and eager to serve us all the way. The cottage is something out of a storybook with every last single thought put into place. The outside showers makes you feel like a young child again and so close to nature. The bush bath is an absolute must for anyone and the Spa helps you feel rejuvenated and free. If there is anyone that has the utmost romantic at heart, even for wedding proposals, forest creek is the sure place to make magic happen. This would surely be our new home away from home in the future.

We enjoyed our stay so much. The Bee Eater Unit is so luxurious and fully equipped. Absolutely adored the “his & hers” outside showers. The picnic in the ruins was gorgeous. Nature is so beautifully preserved, thanks for that. The only slightly negative thing is the road from the N4 towards Lydenburg that is very bad due to potholes.
