One of the highlights of our stay in South Africa :-) Wonderful guesthouse in a beautiful garden. The two Dogs, especially Oscar, are amazing. The staff is very friendly, even our rental car was cleaned. The rooms are large and beautiful, nearly perfect. We really can recommend this Location!

We spent two nights at Gerald's Gift Guest House. This was our third visit and it gets better each time. The accommodation was outstanding. We stayed in the Owl room and were visited by an owl in the early evening...such a treat. The breakfasts were delicious and the hosts, Roger and Susan, as always, friendly, warm and welcoming. The garden...

Great B&B on an old farm. Has a beautiful park. One of the best B&Bs we have seen on our trip through South Africa, Very good restaurant nearby. Only a short distance from Addo game reserve. The ladies who run the place were very helpful and friendly.
