My partner and I enjoyed our stay in this accommodation. It is very clean, comfortable, peaceful and provides everything one would need in a self catering accommodation. I cannot fault but to advice that they improve on their braai facilities by building a shelter for cases when it is raining.

Wow! If you are looking for a stunning, relaxed and an extremely well organized and thought out place to stay, this is it. Beautiful accommodation, central location and lots to see and do. Each room also has amazing LED lights and it's very eco friendly. And so quiet, I had to check if I was breathing most of the time!
