We were delightfully surprised with our three-night stay in the Loft. Beautifully and tastefully furnished, the suite was comfortable, with a great view of the Rondevlei lake. A lovely touch was a basket of freshly baked muffins on the morning we checked out. Will definitely return!

There was even a little chocolate on our fresh towels. What you see on their website is exactly what you get - STUNNING! The view, the peace, the tranquility,...

We were truly blown away with this place. We didn't expect it to be so amazing. The peaceful surroundings, the bird life and just the whole experience. We felt rejuvenated and refreshed. It's not just the perfect stop over, but would also be a great destination, especially if you love nature. Thanks Rod and Heidi

The perfect place to spend our 19th anniversary! We stayed in the Vintage room - comfortable and beautifully decorated with a splendid view over the lake. Breathtaking sunrise, worthwhile getting up early for that. The hike to the waterfall as well as the birds hide-away are also highly recommended.
