I needed a quiet, tranquil, friendly and reasonable place and this was it. The place is very neat, comfortable, with a hospitable owner and much closer to where I had a meeting. The only setback is that no meals are served.

I have been to many guesthouses in our beautiful country Mzantsi and this guesthouse gave me the peace of mind that one needs when out there. Keep the good work up! The lodge is approximately five minutes drive to both the mall and the beach.

What a lovely welcoming guesthouse. we stopped over on our Garden route holiday to Cape Town with my two babies. The owner waited up for us to arrive late evening and made sure we were welcomed with a warm smile and reception. even though the room was small it was just what we needed after a long day of travelling. fresh white linen and soft inviting pillows made for a refreshing stop-over. Perfect and convienient stopover.
