                                      I loved the space and would only recommend that you have a washing basin and facility to cook on a stove. Rubbish bins should also be available to dispose of rubbish.

                                      Friendly staff..we enjoyed the weekend.and would go back to the place again and again...the place is very quite perfect for someone who wants to rest and get away from the urban life.More play area or swings for the 8-12 years kids will be great...

                                      Perfect place for a quiet relaxing getaway where you do absolutely nothing and just enjoy nature :) The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating, will definitely be back!

                                      Lekker plek as jy wil weg kom van die gewoel van die stad. Lekker braai geriewe. Stap tussen diere. Staproetes se merkers moet net meer gereed aangedui word. Paadjies is soms onduidelik. Opwasgeriewe se wasbak is baie laag, ongemaklik.
