          The communication prior to our arrival was swift. Simon responds quickly and with politeness. We arrived to a very clean and spacious place. The multiple bathrooms contributed to our comfort and convenience. We were a family of 10 and the kids lobed the pool. There are booklets with ideas on what to do around the area and that was useful. Simon was always available the few times we needed his assistance. The place is homely and very welcoming. We enjoyed ourselves and would recommend the place to anyone looking for a place in a quite place!

          There are a lot of things to be improved at the White Giraffe River Cottage.

There was no broom, mop or scoop in the cottage and while the stay was pleasant, the attitude of the people we had to contact was not at all welcoming and understanding...
