What a delightful stay in Tree Frog. Beautiful nature walk down to the waterfall and you can even have a swim down there. The couple who owns it is also very pleasant to deal with. Thank you, for an amazing weekend getaway :-) Bianca

Fabulous 'self catering in a secluded jungle cabin" kind of experience. Also a pool, plus secure gardens for the kids. And still very close to Garden route farm shops, wine estates and Plett Bay itself. Friendly young new owners, who are very helpful with great staff. Seriously relaxed place. Do the 1 hour jungle walk , to the waterfall !!

We've spent time during 3 consecutive December holidays at Moonshine. It's wonderful there - close enough to everywhere you want to go, but secluded and private and wonderfully quiet. The shared pool is great for the kids. I loved relaxing on the deck and enjoying the view. The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped. The walk down to Whiskey Creek is a must - so special down there. Highly reommended.

We had a wonderful impromptu stay at Moonshine on Whiskey Creek and we were not disappointed. Beautiful quaint chalet with an awesome view and lovely birdsongs. Great friendly service from the hosts. Would definitely go back.

Eight of us were privileged to be allowed a single night stay during a hectic tour of the Klein Karoo and Garden Route. We now cannot wait to return for a longer visit; there was not enough time for us to fully explore the property or surrounding attractions. Our welcome was wonderful, and perfectly timed; everything about the accommodation was explained in full and the cabins were well-appointed, clean and all we could have hoped for. Nothing was too much trouble for Carol and our visit could not have been improved - except by staying longer!

We had a lovely break - tucked away in nature. So private. The cabin was very well maintained as was the whole complex. Very comfortable and quiet. We had everything we needed in the cabin for a short break. Lovely hot shower and free wifi.

It felt like we had left reality and did fly to the moon. We spent five nights in this handcrafted cabin; you can see and feel the love that went into building this quirky, cleverly designed space that feels like a luxurious treehouse. Thoughtful and well-equipped, whist crisp, clean linen and the best views. I especially enjoyed lying in our cosy cabin gazing away at the stars. Sue and Anton are experienced and warm hosts; you are sure to enjoy complete privacy and comfort in a safe and immaculately clean, beautiful space.

It was our peaceful encounter with nature after many hardworking days inland. We were looking for an adventure and needed to get closer to nature. There's nothing like going off grid but still feeling like your at home and comfortable. Our Treehouse was just the adventure our family of 5 needed. Beautiful views of birds and mountains, Hiking down to the waterfall was really fun and the kids enjoyed the play area on the premises, Albert and Sue are amazing hosts with a detailed welcome I felt I was in safe hands. They thought about everything a family with young kids need to have an awesome adventure. Thank you Albert and Sue for your hospitality and care. Oh and the amazing sweet chilli sauce 😉
