              What an awesome spot to find. Beautiful elegant cottage, perfect setting, everything one needs to have a pleasant weekend away. Gorgeous rooms with a view and real live wildlife in the garden. What a pleasure to spend time there. The hostess was equally amazing. We will be back!

              The cabin was lovely and comfortable (although I would recommend some sort of curtain/ door for the bathroom. Lovely spot on the river. Supply of wood was kind.

              We had a wonderful overnight stay (on our way to Cape Town) at Chris-Elle's Petite Cabin. It is a cute little cabin with everything that you need except for a microwave oven (although it had a two plate stove). The en suite bathroom does not offer privacy as there is no door or curtain to separate it from the room. Other from these two factors, it was a lovely place to stay at with beautiful spring bucks greeting us at our front porch the next morning. The hosts were great and quick to respond.

              Loved the country lifestyle. Real piece and quiet with lots of open spaces. My son was fascinated with being able to get so close to a few wild animals. Inside cottage was nice and comfortable. However the main purpose of our stay was spoiled. Stayed there over night to get some rest as we were on a road trip. An intermittent noisy fridge keep me from a comfortable night's sleep.
