I stayed at Flatcat with my family for a weekend and it was a great little house, the Sailfish Villa. It has all the necessary basic things one needs while in Sodwana. We shared it as 7 adults and it actually worked quite well, even though Rina was keen on giving us a second Chalet at only little extra cost. It's not too far away from Sodwana Bay entrance, a little drive away (20 min) to Coral Divers but all in all I would recommend this establishment.

We had a tremendous time at Flat Cat All our needs were catered for and our hosts were very accommodating. The surrounding was secure and felt like being in an oasis.

We were suprised by how beautiful the grounds were. Each morning there were flocks of birds visiting.The accomodations were nice and bigger than expected. Also there was a well-maintained swimming pool. They had a nice sitting area outside with a braai and a clothes line for hanging out laundry. We enjoyed our stay and will come again.
