      We stayed here for one night as we had a wedding in the area. The house was HUGE, the view was magnificent, the beds were comfortable and the guests (the four of us) were happy :) It is in the wild though so if you're scared of bugs and/ or spiders, be warned. Having said that though, the house was very clean. We just needed to shake out the bath towels before using them ;)

      Myself and seven other girlfriends stayed at Mazwil Retreat over this last weekend for the Wacky Wine. And oh my word we were blown away. The accommodation is so so beautiful, from the gigantic fire place in the lounge for the cold nights to the gorgeous views. The house also features everything you need and more, all you need to bring along is some clothes and food! A huge thank you to Ruth the manager she was friendly and accommodating. We WILL definitely be back!

      We enjoyed our time spent at Mazwil Retreat.The views in the evening and morning was absolutely stunning it was a very relaxing experience.Ruth the owner was very pleasant and helpful.The attached pond provided hours of enjoyment to our sons and they managed to catch a few bass on a catch and release basis.The general experience at the main house was good it is spacious with all relevant amenities available the only exception was that there was no tv for the kids.There was a hi-fi available but this did not seem to work.We however felt that the house could be better maintained in general.
