Came last year with the firm intention to come back next trip to South Africa. This is what we did, with renewed pleasure. Wonderful place to relax, quiet, friendly atmosphere, beautiful rooms, pool area and surroundings. Tina and Angelo made us really feel in a private home, thanks for that.

We stay in boutique hotels frequently and suffice to say this is as good as a boutique hotel can get. Impressive estate that can be explored in various ways. Every possible detail has been considered and the personal touch makes your stay unforgettable.
