Our stay at Hillview was phenomenal! Janine was so warm and welcoming, she even took time out to feed the fish with our two toddlers. They absolutely loved it! The Lagoon view apartment was breathtakingly beautiful. The attention to detail was also impressive! We're definitely coming back!

What a pleasant visit! Beautiful view out of the bedroom. Very clean and well equipped for self-catering purposes. Loved it! Will definitely go back.

We stayed at Hillview on our way to East London. We arrived late and were warmly welcomed by Karen. We stayed in the family suite and found it to be very comfortable - more than enough space for 2 adults and 2 children. We enjoyed it so much, we stayed again on our way back from East London. Will stay there again.
