The property was set on a large farm type area just outside of town. The house reminded me of a mansion in California or Spanish type large house. The staff were excellent and provided a nice breakfast in the morning.

About
Description
Laughing Waters Guest is 15kms away from Kruger National Park, on the magnificent Panorama Route. There are many golf courses close by, secluded accommodation in the heart of the beautiful Sabie More Valley. It is a quiet haven with sub tropical gardens, an abundance of bird life. The eye catching Laughing Waters Guest House is well located in the Sabie Valley just out of Hazyview on the R536 to Sabie. To access it you journey through well established lemon orchards, over the beautiful Sabie River with its resident hippos and crocodiles and into a sub tropical garden incorporating majestic trees and shrubs with immaculate rolling lawns with a large swimming pool. The accompanying abundant birdlife gives rise to the evocative calls of fish eagles during the day and the haunting calls of the night-jars after dark. And above all there is an overwhelming sense of peace ! The Guest House has a Spanish feel and flair with high arches, slate floors and a central landscaped courtyard from which all rooms are accessed. Additionally there is a large indoor dining room for those cold mornings and an outdoor patio ding area from which the memorable Lowveld mornings can be enjoyed. All bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms, bath towels, swimming towels, guest amenities and a tea and coffee station. Local area information brochures magazines and a comprehensive Laughing Waters Guesthouse information brochure, free Wi-Fi in all rooms. Secure parking in the Guest House grounds, a car wash service. Honesty bar and TV in the communal main lounge area. Hearty farmhouse 3 course dinners are available every night and may be arranged with prior booking. Kruger National Park, Panorama Tours and airport transfers can be organised for you, with refreshments and packed lunches for you day out. Hazyview town is 10kms away and you have access to supermarkets, restaurants and other amenities. Many golf courses in the area and nearby White River and Nelspruit. We have many beautiful hikes and cycle courses and we can also arrange a permit for fly fishing in the Sabie River right on the Guest House doorstep! We have an in-house tour guide to assist with any local information and areas of interest to visit. Less
