I have been in South Africa for 5 months now. For 4 months I was staying in other places and then I came here. This is by far the best place. Great service, owner of place very caring and responsible for the places and great staff! They give more service than what was promised and I'm very glad I moved here. I had some problems in the last place I was at with my neighbors and then I came here and Gavin, the owner, makes sure the place is calm and nice so that the people can live at easily. Thank you for all your service, it's great!
