Gauteng, South Africa1 contribution
I had a beautiful stay at this establishment. when you are away from home the last thing you need is not being comfortable. the hosts where great. They are great communicators, welcoming and have a great sense of humor( that helped after being on the road for a while). I will certainly come back here.

The rooms and surrounding gardens were beautiful and the hosts were lovely, helpful and friendly. We had all the facilities needed to make our own meals and do everything that we needed to do, there was even ice for our drinks! (which we had forgotten to buy). We had an amazing stay and will definitely be back.

I enjoyed myself. You must consider cooking dinner at the facility or else the restaurant you are using must have more meal options. Thank you Peter, Carolina and the ladies for making my stay awesome.

I had a wonderful stay at Wind Rose. Peter and Carola and their friendly staff were absolutely amazing. The rooms were magnificent, the food was divine and the garden and swimming pool were beautiful. They were never too busy to accommodate my requests and everything was done with a friendly smile and warm heart. My room was clean, neat and spacious. The gorgeous gardens and pool area made for a relaxed enjoyable time. I would recommend and visit anytime.

We stayed at Wind-Rose Guest house during the December Christmas holiday. This was an amazing experience for me and my family. Carola, Peter and their friendly staff were absolutely amazing. They made us feel so welcome. The rooms were magnificent, the food was divine and the garden and swimming pool were beautiful. They were never too busy to accommodate our requests and everything was done with a friendly smile and warm heart. Carola, Peter and the friendly staff have become family.
