              Continental pillows as the headboard is beautifully authentic but you cannot rest against it. Room was cleaned poorly. Bed not dusted out and cutlery dirty. Tap in sink did not work. Would revisit as owner very and staff very welcoming. Very relaxing atmosphere.

              Pim was a very gud host. The cabin was very clean and accommodating. Just needed a toaster and egg lift. Close to nearest attractions.

              The chalets are about one hour out of St Lucia, thus making day trips to the area very possible. The area is quiet and peaceful, thus avoiding the 'hustle and bustle' of St Lucia.The staff are friendly, and the chalets and shared kitchens are well looked after. The bathrooms may need a little bit of maintenance, but otherwise are good enough.Waking up to the chorus of birds chirping does, however, make it worth it.

              We love the peacefulness of the place, the company and the chalets. We love exploring the area at night as well. Pim is a great host!

              Loved the game viewing in Hluhluwe and the Endomeni cat project, the neighbour's waterhole, the bushbabies, and just peaceful ambience. On the downside the kitchen facilities were abysmal. 3 frying pans, no pots, no utensils, no microwave cookware...either braai or bring your own. Half the showers and the kitchen had no hot water supply.
