          All was perfect, the owners were delightful and the lake side cottage was very comfortable.

          Firstly, the house we used was a perfect spot to see the mountains and mountains were really majestic. It's hard to explain it in words. It's the view to die for. Secondly, the house was really a perfect fit for my family and we all enjoyed it. The only thing to improve in the house and still maintain its age is to change the couches to be a bit more comfortable. But overall, the house is perfect. Thirdly, the location of the house is in the good spot because we have managed to visit different coffee shops and to explore more places. Lastly, EmaFweni is a a place to be and is a great place...

          Only thing I missed was a decent braai.Small cheap braai was not cool.Parking could be improved with some paving.

          Only spent one night here but we had a great time. Cottage is very well appointed making the best use of the breathtaking location and views. Very homely and equipped with everything you might need.Rita is lovely: efficient and friendly and so kind to share her piece of paradise with others.

          The place is beautiful, the environment is refeshing. Most activities are just 1min away. I love the place and my highlight is rock pool. I am looking forward for my next visit.
