I found this holiday home by chance on booking.com and searched for reviews from other visitors online. It is a hidden gem! The house and garden are beautiful, the elephants passing by the outside wall twice a week are amazing. We could have stayed our whole holiday on the premises of this beautiful home. The lapa and the swimming pool were great and our children adored Ella the watchdog (who was friendly to us, but protected us from everything creepy and crawly at night). The helpers were available 24/7, lovely girls and made us feel very welcome. Just the perfect home away from home, all kinds of trips can be arranged via them. We went on a cruise on the Chobe river, went to Vic Falls and on a safari game drive. When our driver didn't show up for the game drive, our guide from Vic Falls jumped in her van and picked us up in her PJ's after a call from the onsite staff. We used the braai one night and the next morning it was already spotless clean. We feel we have been pampered here and enjoyed the luxury of having a whole house for our family. Nature is beautiful in this part of Botswana, I really will plan a trip back to this place with other friends and family who are coming to Botswana.
Close to all the attractions in Kasane on the Chobe. Really loved the house and yard.
It is great for families and small groups. There are stairs though for some rooms.
Lots of large airy rooms with huge gardens meant this was perfect for us with four adults and four children. The Chobe river is just a short distance away and the Zimbabwe border is also very close. It was easy to find and recognisable by the local taxi drivers. We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay at the Residence. A couple of minor notes to make are that the DSTV only worked in the upstairs bedroom and the kitchen could benefit from a makeover, but overall a well recommended property from which to base your trip from.
We are a family of eight that had a great time in The Residence. Big air-conditioned rooms, lovely pool and lapa with it's own kitchen and braai. Big kitchen, large common areas and nice balcony. A great spot on one hand to relax and chill but also close to Kasane, Chobe and the borders to Zimbabwe and Zambia. The owner was friendly and helpful and the house serviced daily. Highly recommended
