Charming guesthouse decorated with pictured taken by the owner. Just one little problem, the room I got was close to the kitchen which means that on early morning I...

Thanks for a great stay (our last 3 nights in SA). Fantastic place to stay in every way - great location with lovely views and decor to delicious breakfast. Banda is very friendly & helpful; and Martin and Anita were great (and view some of the great photography). . I would highly recommend & would go back tomorrow.
