One of the best accommodation I ever enjoyed in SA; very tasteful interiors, enough space and very clean. Friendly owner. All was perfect! Thank you!

Eli, John and Gran are such nice, friendly people that, even if the cottage was a pondokkie, it would have been worth staying there. The cottage was in fact extremely comfortable and the service was excellent! While staying there, it is well worth it to visit the local pub, Louis', for a drink or two and a delicious steak.
