                  The establishment is very quiet and peaceful and beautifully furnished. The only disappointment for us was the non-availability of either electricity or water on the Sunday morning when we awoke - does the entity not have a generator to combat Eskom load-shedding or private water tanks to enable guests to have access to water when the municipality sources 'dry up'?Establishment response Dear Mark, Thank you for your review. Just to let you know that we do have reserve water supplies in abundance but the system requires electricity to pump - until now we have not felt the need for an emergency...

                  Thank you for a lovely stay. Sally was so helpful, even made us some breakfast snackpacks as we left early the next day, and we loved all the personal touches that she has made to the accommodation. We were sad to leave!

                  Pros - Beautiful house and and comfortable facilities, furnished with good taste. Great location (not in the very center, but in the "posh" area, with the center walkable in 15 min). Friendly host. Cons - None really. There was no breakfast option, but the fresh fruit, milk and nice cereal options in the room were more than enough.

                  Beautiful old home in immaculate condition. Lovely and quiet too.

                  Sally made me feel very welcome and wanted. She treated me like family. The place is gorgeous, very clean, nice and fresh breakfast. It was just wonderful. Will stay there again in future.
