Cannot fault anything. Perfection. Little touches lifts the service from the owners to the highest levels. E.g.: booking of restaurant table, very informative e-mails, cleanliness of bathroom, etc.Lovely pool area.

We stayed here on our Cape road trip, and we're extremely impressed by the friendliness and helpfulness of the hosts who gave us advise on everything from restaurants to places to visit in the area. The rooms were well equipped & neat, and the breakfast was an absolute delight with Phil & Linda using locally sourced produce.

Hosts are very helpful. They make very personal contact. The daily aperitive time is an important socialysing time for the guests and the hosts. We had always a lot of fun and we exchanged a lot of information about the trips.

We were warmly welcomed by Phil and Linda who were most helpful in booking restaurants and giving us the benefit of local knowledge. A very happy coincidence came to light when it emerged that Linda and Chris had both attended Dover Girls Grammr School although not at the same time. A lovely place to stay.
