Hosts (family Conyers) are very hospitable and friendly and we enjoyed our stay at this great place and our children also very much liked the swimming pool. Highly recommendable.

Of the four places we booked on the garden route this was undoubtedly the most luxurious. After a romantic lunchtime cruise by paddleboat over the lagoon we recovered from an excess of sauvignon blanc by the pool. Georgeous gardens, sweet birdsong from fork-tailed drongos and sunbirds, and, of course, the charming host and family made it an unforgettable stay.
