                              I loved the place, the rooms are spacious and very clean and super comfortable, the staff was very helpful and the kitchenette is well equipped. I really enjoyed my holiday. I would not hesitate to book again next time.

                              It was really lovely. We were bowled over by the accommodation, so much so that we stayed an extra night. A lot of thought has gone into providing everything that a guest might need. Beautiful view, quite and peaceful. Wish we could have stayed longer.

                              We had a great time at a really beautiful venue and were well looked after by Vaughan and Hennie.
