What a wonderful time we had, we booked into the 3 bed Maluti house. As you walk in you are greeted by an exquisite backdrop full of greenery and breathtaking mountains. The house is well equipped, from the kitchen to the entertainment joys such as Netflix, boardgames and a pool table to name a few. If you are looking for a place to rest and reset this is definitely it...thank you to Margie who is an amazing host.

My stay here was excellent. Very neat place and Margie is such an angel. This is the perfect place if you want to get away from the city and its noise. I grew closer to God than I ever was before, using this alone time to spend with Him. I would absolutely recommend The Fat Mulberry!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review Therese. We are so glad you found your apartment clean, comfortable and beautiful too! Margie has had such fun finding unusual, quirky decorations and individually decorating each apartment. Yes this is an absolutely lovely part of the country, and The Fat Mulberry is the perfect place from which to explore, or simply relax and enjoy the view ;)
