We loved the simplicity and the location. The unit had everything we needed for a fun family get away. We ate outdoors around the bon fire, enjoying the bright moonlight. We loved our hikes in surrounding mountains. Spectacular scenery !!

Delightful roomy house in a quiet setting with superb views. Excellent braai facilities though the kitchen could do with some updating. Very good location with many local attractions. Consequently, the information folder needs revising and it would be helpful to include notes on household equipment. Overall, quality accommodation, clean, comfortable and well worth a visit.
