Mark and Nelly were very friendly. And the breakfast was good. The swimmingpool had a good temperature. They had a solar and a battery, so there was no load shedding. Everyday they clean the rooms. The bed was also good.

Very comfortable stay with a spacious room and everything I needed. The breakfast each day was fabulous with the best fruit salad ever. I enjoyed the swimming pool and the availability of big towels. Both Neli and Mark were friendly and most welcoming.

The Magic View room requires new curtains that close properly. A good place to stay for a family. Breakfast was great but a bit variety will help. The hosts were great and there was no fuss during the check in.

Lovely stay. The facilities are clean, tranquil and the staff are super friendly and helpful. May I suggest that for long staying patrons breakfast be different on the 3rd morning. My stay was exactly what I wanted it to be.

Spent 10 days at this guesthouse in December 2022, this is by far the best guesthouse I've ever stayed at. Friendly service, and when we requested the air fryer they promised they went and bought us a brand new one. Would wholeheartedly recommend and will most definitely return here whenever I go back to Nelspruit.

Nice guesthouse, friendly, attentive service and very good breakfast. We arrived well before the agreed check-in time which wasn’t a problem at all. The staff immediately made you feel welcomed and at home.

Maro was excellent as a host, we enjoyed our stay and felt the holiday breeze we needed. Nice breakfast, nice quiet setup. We truly loved everything about the lodge. When we visit the cape Town again, we will look no further when looking for accommodation

The place to be for peace, quiet and great breakfast. Walking distance from the beach, but has it's own beautiful pool. The breakfast was my cherry and it was healthy and filling even for a big man like myself.
