We stayed in 'Butterfly Cottage' which was a fun and enjoyable place to stay for our family. The children had...

Thanks so much for your comprehensive review. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay at Moon Shine. Couple of comments from our side ... We do like to feel that Butterfly can be made cosy and warm in winter. Like most places in South Africa we do not have central heating, however, we do offer a lovely open fireplace...

We loved this place. It is not a five star hotel but it is an amazingly cozy place respecting the environment and with very nice and friendly owners. The owner built the cabins himself, we stayed in a cabin named Fly Me To The Moon Forest Cabin". It is built partially with recycled material, the water comes from a water...

The cosy cabins are beautifully build and hidden between the trees in the woods. The hosts are most kinds and they made our stay very pleasant. Passionate about nature, saving water, electricity, recycling, etc. Wonderful philosophy.

We stayed in bush pig. Beautiful basic cabin on stilts in the trees completely in tune with nature. Rustic decor in a charming cabin. The cabin is very private standing by itself in the woods with an outdoor balcony. Somewhere to relax and be in tune with nature. Beautiful birdsong with the occasional sighting. Delightful walk to a waterfall -...

We stayed in Butterfly Cottage, which is perfect for those with young children. It has its own private garden with a gate, is near the community playground, and has a fire ring for campfires. It also has an indoor fireplace. There isn't much privacy within the sleeping area--only a curtain separates the two bedrooms. The kitchen was fully equipped and...
