UmSisi House is an exclusive use private lodge that is a little piece of paradise nestled onto the side of a hill, enjoying endless views across the Lowveld and into the Kruger Park. The house itself sleeps 2 families in remarkable comfort, but we were lucky enough to be staying on our own, whether you take the lodge yourself or share it, it’s all yours. Like a mini exclusive hotel, but with the most attentive Concierge and private chef you have ever come across. Amanda and Paddy host and look after their guests with seemingly effortless enthusiasm and charm, it doesn’t matter if you are discussing a day in the Kruger or your next day's menu, the two of them have endless passion for their work, the wild and adventure and it is infectious. We loved staying at Umsisi and just wish we could have stayed for longer. An amazing springboard into the Kruger to return to each evening weary from the amazing adventures we had. Thank you to Umsisi and your wonderful staff, we will see you as soon as we can get back.…
We have just returned from a really memorable stay at Umsisi House. It is a beautiful Villa set on gorgeous grounds very near to the Kruger Park. Amanda and Paddy are truly gifted hosts. The food is utterly delicious. Just book and go, a real special find indeed!
ABSOLUTE PEACE OF MIND. I can describe this cottage as A LITTLE PIECE OF HEAVEN IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN. Ideal for Birdwatching and to just sit and enjoy nature in peaceful surroundings. Close to Numbi gate, within easy reach of some charming, signature village style shopping centre's. Enjoyed the company of the dogs Zambuk and Lielie, so friendly and well behaved. The cottage is clean, well equipped with everything you might need during your stay. Good attention to detail and quality linen. "Sunday" our care taker for the cottage is an absolute gem, he attended to all our needs during our stay, a true asset to this little place in heaven. Thank you so much for making our stay memorable.
We spent three nights at this delightful place where Amanda and Paddy, the owners, made everything in their power to ensure we had a fatastic time. Wine? Coffee? A masseuse? Nothing was too much. The house is absolutely beautiful. You sit on the veranda and enjoy the view while Paddy and Amanda are in their open kitchen preparing something delicious and chatting with you. We were there with 6 children from ages 6 to 13 and everybody had a great time. It's easy to drive to the Panorama Route and the waterfalls and enjoy the surroundings as well. I would definetly recommend it.
We stayed in the Umsisi cottage which is perfect when you need to stay over night (or a couple of days ) while travelling through the lowfeld. Zambuck and Lily kept us entertained with there cute playfulness and made us feel that we are at home, Sunday made sure that we are comfortable before leaving cottage and we had a lovely welcome from Paddy and Amanda,
