Warm and friendly welcome by Jenny Jeken. The cottage was stocked with all anyone could need for a 3 day stay and clean. The fresh plums and flowers made us felt special. The garden, kept by Martin, was so inviting that all we wanted to do was enjoy the view, sit under the mulberry tree, go for walks through the macadamia trees. It felt like we had more than three days of rest and would live to go back in future.

Hier gaan dit oor ligging. Stilte, afgesonder en rustig. Dit is die plek om te bly wanneer jy ongesteur wil sit en niks doen.

This place is a bikers dream - nice friendly people, clean, located along excellent gravel roads in a pristine environment and on top of it it is really affordable - even the pub prices are truly affordable.

A very peaceful place in a lush garden surrounded by Macademia plantations, tucked away between hills and rivers, nice little cottage with well equipped kitchen, stoep, braai area, lovely swimming pool, friendly and helpful hosts, a paradise for our dogs, and the humans loved it.
