Flamingo Lake Self Catering
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 May 2017

The simple and peaceful location is the perfect place to relax and to reconnect with the family. Away from the city lights meant spectacular evening braaing under a heaven of stars. Seeing the wild horses was the cherry on the top. We will definitely be back!

For the price Flamingo Lake offers the perfect weekend getaway. Peaceful surroundings and absolutely wonderful scenery (bird-life incl.) made for a perfect rest and rejuvenation. The weather was great except for one very windy day that we used for kite flying. The bungalow we stayed in was cosy and well cleaned when we arrived. This is definitely a place we'll return to -- hopefully soon. Thank you Lee Wells for an absolutely wonderful break for the rat race :)

Awesome setting and view. We loved everything about it. We never cooked there other than tea/coffee but I can imagine that we may have needed a few more kitchen utensils had we been cooking. Beds are comfortable but pillows are very flat, next time I will bring my own.

Such a beautiful setting and we were lucky enough to see both the wild horses and the Flamingo's.

We stayed in bungalow 5 which was set out of the wind but without a view, however steps up to the seating area afforded superb views of the bay.

The bottle of wine was a nice touch and much appreciated as was the offer to check out late.

The information files in the bungalow were extremely helpful and well laid out.

However what stopped us giving a very good or excellent was the condition of the bungalow it wasn't so much dirty but shabby and really needed some TLC.

The bathroom showed signs of wear and tear as did other parts of the bungalow but nothing that a little bit of that TLC couldn't sort out in no time at all.

The table mats looked as though someone had used them as a cutting/chopping board and really needed replacing.

Overall it was a extremely comfortable and relaxing stay and we would return hoping housekeeping had upped its game.

My husband and I had a lovely weekend at Flamingo Lake. The location was perfect. We loved sitting in our garden watching the sunset and the birds. The accommodation met all our needs. Comfortable and clean, fully equipped kitchen. Added bonuses were a complimentary bottle of wine, use of the kayaks and being able to check out in the afternoon. We had a lovely, restful weekend away. We highly recommend the place and have nothing negative to say. Thank you to Lee for being an excellent host, even though you weren't there you still made sure everything was perfectly organized
