Stayed over night whilst visiting the Hluhulwe/Imfolozi game reserve as the accommodation within the reserve is dire. We were welcomed by a very friendly Lewelyn you showed us around the guest house and to our room. Self catering unit is very well equipped with own braai area. Plenty of space for 6 adults, secure parking. Rooms are very well kept... More

We booked a tripple room with pool view but when we got there they gave us one main bedroom and a second smallerone. The appartment should have had two bathrooms but we only had the one to share because one portion of the tripple room was rented to someone else. Not good as we were a party of 4 adults.... More

It was both Maralize and Llewelyn who ensured we spend 9 wonderful days and nights at the guesthouse. You can see how much the care about their guest having a wonderful stay by all the attention to details. That and the great location not far from many different parks and the ocean made us even extend our stay. :-)

Excellent value for money, Room was lovely and very comfortable. Host very welcoming, great breakfast, great location for visiting Imfolozi and Hluhluwe. A very enjoyable place to stay, welcomed with a glass of sherry which we sat and drank in the garden.

The village itself is nothing special. There are almost no restaurants. Although there's a nice Braai place at the accomodation. During our stay it was chilly at night so we were not able to use the Braai :-( Our room (the family room) was perfectly furnished. Nice beddings, fridge with fresh water and milk, microwave and a good shower (bathroom).... More

We stayed for one night on our way through the park. We were greeted warmly and made to feel very welcome. The established as whole looks clean and inviting. The take away breakfast for early leavers to the park was great. We will definitely be back!
