Really good and enjoyable stay at African Violet. Very clean and neat Garden Studio, with beautiful views, friendly and helpful service from Jenni. Lots of entertainment and drives with stunning views very close by. Will definitely return and recommend to anyone looking for quality accommodation. Thanks Jenni!

So glad we decided to make it a two night stay. Jenny is a gem of a host and made us feel at home from the onset when she called ahead of our arrival to ask about our ETA.
