Andrew and Nell are the most fantastic hosts, they genuinely want people to feel at home in their home. The bedroom (and its en-suite bathroom) were renovated to a high spec, well-furnished and decorated. The common areas were comfortable. The garden, the pool, the mountain views, sunsets and sun-downers on the verandah were particular highlights, as was the food. Thanks...

What a nice place to enjoy and relax! Stunning views from the terrace where dinner and breakfast is served. Sipping a wonderful wine while watching a beautiful sunset. Seriously good food being prepared by Nel. Just a 'lekker plekkie".
