The cabon was as advertised - basic wooden cabin. The lady said that the power cables were stolen, but they had a generator - we had power for approximately 2-3 hours in the time that we were there. The gate was broken and could just be pushed open- not secure at all. There was a group of people that partied till after 3 in the morning with quite a few strangers walking in and out of the property during the night. We left after 1 night and looked for more secure accommodation. The pool was nice though.

The basic accommodation is exactly what was advertised, and lived up to the reference/recommendation we receved.

It has clean and quiet with safe parking.

For the price a bargain - the swimming pool will be a treat if you spend more time.

Friendly service as well!

Self-catering kitchens not well equipped. No sink to do the dishes in either.

Free wifi available but the reception is poor.


The pool table is completely broken. Once we paid to play we realized the balls just rolled to one side.

Darts for dart board are broken.

The pool was not the cleanest as the water was a milky white.

The place is so beautiful and as such I'm really sad at how disappointing it was.

We Arrived at the bnb after a long days drive.
What welcomed us was not at all what we expected.

MONKEYS, locked inside the house, staring at us through mesh fences that have been fastened over the doors, windows and security guards.

I do not agree at all with having animals in cages and so I called who I thought was the owner and explained that I would not be staying because of the monkeys and I would appreciate a refund.

I was then sent a message stating the owner will not refund anything. I then called the owner and was spoken to like I was a child and that her monkeys have nothing to do with the bnb. I explained that I do not want to stay anywhere with monkeys.

She did not refund me.

Very neat and tidy, 'self-catering' kitchens not well equipped. 'Free wifi' but signal very poor so couldn't connect most times.
Zero hospitality and poor guest communications. Quite disappointing.
Also, they have two cats which were rather a menace, climbing into all the bags and packets, taking stuff off counters. So if you have cat allergies, steer clear.
Not all areas, as pictured, were freely accessible and well maintained, enabling us guests to enjoy full benefit.

Very surprised with the whole set up , the rooms are log cabins set up on the property .
They come fully equipied , with a fridge and microwave and are very comfortable and cosy .
The parking in front did get a bit tight , due to the number of people staying there sharing rooms but traveling to the venue solo .

The only grip I did have was the controls for the access gate , the keypad is located on the wall so you have to exit your vehicle to enter to pass code , which I did feel makes one rather vulnerable will doing this especially in this day and age ,some sort of remote control would be a far better option .
That said it is a small thing and would not stop me from returning if I am ever in the area again .
