Marna who manages the guesthouse was absolutely amazing. She was very friendly, made good suggestions on where to go around the area. My husband and I felt very welcomed and at home. Tania, her assistant was also great. The guest house was absolutely perfect. The bedroom and huge bathroom was perfect. We had a wonderful anniversary weekend. Thank you Kleinzee

If you are on a trip far away from home and you arrive at Kleinzee Guesthouse, you immediately feel at home. It is an amazing place! The breakfast, the room and the atmosphere - all of it was fantastic. To Linda and Deon who made us feel at home right from the start, thank you for 3 wonderful days at Kleinzee.
