                          Absolutely enchanting with great thoughtful touches.Only drawback is there no dining table/chairs inside. Last night was too chilly to be outdoors and there was no dining/ laptop work area inside. Apart from that I could spend a week there chilling.

The fridge hadn't yet been cleaned and 2 cobwebs on the curtain rail in the main bathroom. It has so much potential but management needs to check on the rooms before a guest arrives.

                          i think it was a bit high on the price side but if demand is driving this then there is not much that will change it.

                          We were looking for a place on the Orange River and this cottage fitted the bill. Clean and comfortable and meant we had a great nights sleep
