As so many have said in their reviews, this guest house is an absolute gem. 1. The rooms are immaculate, as are the interior common areas and grounds 2. The food was excellent, on all counts. A guest house which serves dinner to order, and until 8pm at night, is unheard of. A big thumbs up and thank you for looking after all my needs (including a request for a glass at wine at 8 at night) 3. Each room has a balcony or patio which is a lovely extension of your room-space 4. The pool, lounging area and outside deck is amazing. Loved spending time there. 5. Even on the day where they were fully occupied, it didn't feel overcrowded at all. Impressive that you can find your own spot and get comfortable (they only have 7? rooms) 6. The staff are really exceptional in accommodating

A perfect one night stay to re charge our batteries after heading off on safari. Super clean, very comfy beds, and breakfast was delicious. All staff were also very friendly, would recommend as a stop over. Thank you

Lovely view and very clean rooms. The only part I can comment on is the breakfast. The waitress got my order mixed up, and when the correct order came (French toast) the scrambled egg mixture was still raw.

Highly recommended Guest House in a very convent location, near town, airport, etc. The welcome was great, very friendly and helpful. Provided early breakfast pack which was unexpected. Rooms were clean and airy. Nothing to fault.
