“Home from home”
Reviewed 31 January 2013 for a stay in January 2013

Stayed in number 25 across the road which is also owned by Karyn and Chris. We really enjoyed having the house to ourselves after a month of hotels and B & B's. This is our second year here and have booked for next year. The house is immaculate with a beautiful garden and sparkling pool. The house is well situated for Umhlanga and Gateway and has good access to the main roads. Chris and Karyn put their heart into making their guests happy.

“Comfortable, spacious - highly recommended”
Reviewed 9 July 2012 for a stay in March 2012

Clean, well furnished living room and very good litchen (although the bedroom is a bit disappointing). Nice pool and helpful owners. We stayed in the 1-bed unit for about 16-dyas - the larger house appears to be equally well kitted out.
Watch for: limited number of TV channels, and desperately slow internet.
We would stay here again.

Thank-you for the feedback Brian, your points are noted and actioned where possible.
You will be glad to know that the internet connection has since been upgraded to the fastest connectivity available in here in South Africa (4 Mbit/s).
Regretably the limited number of TV channels we can offer is out of our control. This restriction is imposed on all commercial establishmets, like ours, by our national satellite TV service provider - Multichoice.
Regarding the bedroom, please could you elaboarate and/or provide any suggestions for further improvements.
Much appretiated, take care.
Chris & Karyn.
