Ons was baie tevrede. Het in 'n privaathuis tuisgegaan met 'n lifelike uitsig oor see. Henda is vriendelik en behulpsaam. We were very pleased. In a private home with a lovely view over the sea. Henda is friendly and helpful.

My vrou was in haar noppies met die wasmasjien. Hulle kry 4 sterre by my.GroetteFanie en Rika Meyer
From the time I made my first contact, everything went smoothly, the booking, before arrival, at arrival also when we left. Henda went out of her way to make us feel welcome, she upgraded us to no.10, her info about the area was spot on and they are absolutely the right people as hosts. Thanks also to SafariNow.com.
The receiving was very friendly. We arrived half an hour before booking in time, but Mrs Van Eeden allowed us to check in. Absolutely loved everything about the place, it was cosy and clean and very welcoming. Will definitely go back in the near future!
