                  We enjoyed the peace and quiet very much. We also liked the fact that we had a lot of privacy. It was great to find some basic foodstuffs provided, as well as some treats. Altogether very pleasant.

                  In spite of the adverse weather the Yard is ideal to get away from it all with your pet (Lucy enjoyed it immensely!) Not too far from Cape Town for a quick getaway - thank you Malinda

                  We loved the huge treesy enclosed yard, (our dog too! ))the absence of melamine and plastic in our room,the handmade details and the the genuine friendliness of the hosts who are helpful but not intrusive.Marinda has all the basics just right.
