The guesthouse is very well-appointed with everything one needs for self-catering. There are even flowers, rusks and sweets in the rooms. The wheelchair bathroom allows for easy access. We had two rooms and one had a lovely stoep with a view of the farm surroundings.

Lovely host and greeted us when we arrived. It was quite a chilly evening and was great to be welcomed into a warm and cosy room with all the preferred requirements. Bathroom quite small - especially the shower but ok for overnight as we left early the next morning.

You definitely need a 4x4 or suv to gain access to the property. The rooms are definitely not to be recommended. I left and rather booked myself in somewhere else . Bundu bashing through the trees to get to a new room as the stairs to the unit with a loft bedroom is ridiculous for any person to climb.

I booked A Little Guesthouse for my parents at the last minute. Annalie gave them a warm welcome and even updated me that they were safely settled in. My mother noted that the room was exceptionally clean. I would definitely recommend this property.

Thank you for the feedback. It was really nice meeting your parents and good to hear that they noted the cleanliness!. It was important to update you on their arrival as I knew you must have been worried about them being on the road after dark. It will be great to have them back again in the future. Regards Annalie

Just a one night stopover but, with a very friendly welcome, clear communication beforehand with directions, instructions and recommendations, it was what was needed after a long day's drive. The accommodation is small but clean, comfortable and well equipped with everything needed, as well as some extras which many places don't even think about. Annalie, thank you so much for making our short stay a pleasant and refresshing one. Best wishes for the future. Bill & Joy Phelps

Well equipped and modern rooms. Not huge but we only stayed one night. Love the close proximity to the highway and restaurants. It is in a quiet area, beautiful garden. Mosquitoes are present after all the rain but there are spray and burners in the rooms.
