Great accomadation, great dives an all round fantastic experience in every dealling with Lindsay of; Toad Tree Cabins and Sea Escapes.
Good Morning Janice and Lindsay
This was my first sea dive and I loved every minute of it.
Thanks to Lindsay for the great hospitality and dive trips.
Awesome service, Awesome accommodation and super Awesome holiday
I will definately recommend you guys to anyone going to Sodwana
Thank you for your hospitality & kindness.
If you visit Pretoria for any reason, please come and stay with us for as long as you wish.
No problem we had a great time staying there with you guys. Diving with you guys feels really relaxed and at the same time I felt very safe. The equipment was up to standard and the choice of dive spots was great. We had everything we needed in the cottage and it was always clean when we got back. Overall wonderful experience will definitely do it again. Will always consider you guys first when coming to sodwana.
Thank you for everything have a great rest of the week.
We enjoyed our stay.
The staff, dogs & cats were friendly.
The cabin suited our needs. The cleaning staff did well in keeping the cabin, braai - & kitchen area clean.
The kitchen was stocked adequately.
I did see the open pool as a risk for the kid, especially with the tripping hazard with the recessed section on the side of the pool, but it is also understood that it is a dive camp and not a crèche.
I will recommend it.

First time staying in a Wendy House was an awesome experience and the mozzies chowed me bad (nothing unusual). I also got to feed the fish which was pretty cool because we're not really allowed to do that... oh and my flippers and goggles were nice too :)
Anyway, jokes aside...
Great holiday, great people, great dives, and overall great experience (Just a little short... next time we go for a week)...and lets start the dives at 10am :-)
Thanks for the hospitality and showing us the beautiful reefs in Sodwana (definitely better than Mozam, well Ponto at least)... We will be back.
We loved every minute of it. I rate it a 10. The cabins and facilities that seaescapes have, have made the trip very enjoyable. We loved our dives and would definitely use seaescapes everytime we go to Sodwana. They only problem we had as everybody, was the wait and line to get into the beach. But that is nothing that you control. But we will never be there over Easter but instead plan our trips out of peak season.
But as I said, couldn’t ask for a better place. We all loved it and it is definitely worth every sent. We will see you again.
Thank You so much for making my first dive so AMAZING!
Good day Jacqui,
I would just like to thank you and all the other staff at Toad Tree Cabins and Seascape for your exceptional great service and friendliness that we received during our stay at Sodwana. We would really recommend you guys to people that is interesting in visiting Sodwana. We really enjoyed every moment of it and would surely stay with you guys again.
The experience was enjoyable.
The accommodation was adequate.
All in all, I am happy
Thank you very much for the follow up.
The accommodation setup at Toad Tree Cabins are unique to some extend and like it very much. The diving was also different to what I am used to at Coral Divers – the biggest differentiators for me was the knowledge that you, Lindsay and Monique has about the reef and fish life and that is not a crazy rush and more a one on one experience. Thanks for a great time …… I am sure that we will visit you all soon.
The booking process was good, you provided me with all the relevant information timeously and followed up which made the booking process easy.
The accommodation was nice though next time I wouldn't book so many people into one unit hahahaha (my fault). Love the cabins and will definitely recommend Toad Tree to friends.
Loved diving with Sea Escapes, we got personal attention and what we wanted was always taken into account. We were involved in dive planning and could very much decide where we wanted to dive - thanx for that.
Even if we stay at Mseni lodge which is where we normally book, I would still dive with Sea Escapes!
Thank you for making our holiday enjoyable.
Thanks Jacqui, we had an awesome time!
Hope to see you again on my next visit to SA.
Hi Janice / Lindsay
Thanks again for a wonderful weekend. Hopefully you will see me soon again.
Thanks and God bless
Yours in conservation
I would also like to thank you and Lindsay for making our stay very enjoyable! We all had a great time and totally loved the diving. We will definately recommend you guys to friends and family. Myself and Ruth also hope to come again before we leave SA but it very much depends on time and money. We also thought Lindsay was a great instructor and it made it all the more enjoyable for that reason.
Thank you again and Happy New Year to you both!
Kerry and the nutty pink gang!
Thanks for the great hospitality during the weekend of 6 to 9 Jan. Pity it rained so much but we had a great time and we did enjoy staying with you guys. I will confirm with you in a month about coming through for the second part of the April holidays.
Once again many thanks
Hi Janice and Lindsay
I just want to thank you gays for the great diving holiday that we had in December 2010. The diving was excellent and the accommodation is a great experience in the bush but close to the ocean. This was the first time that Erica and I dived in the ocean and we are hooked. I would recommend Seaescapes to every diver that I know for a great experience.
Thanx a mill for yet another supa dupa time with you guys.....
Its always great to spend time away from home in your company and the service was hugh standard, apart from Eskom....hahaha
Will def again be coming and look forward seeing u guys again
I would like to take this opportunity to compliment your service at Toad Tree Cabins & Sea Escapes, Sodwana.
There was a warm welcome to us upon arriving and we immediately felt at home. We have met various people during our six day stay and we have made new friends and decided to do our One Star Open Water divers course in December 2010. We again received the same warm welcome. My staff and family enjoyed the stay at Toad Tree Cabins on both occasions as we had a wonderful time.
The diving experience was excellent and I am planning our next trip to Sodwana in the near future.
I want to say once again, thank you for the excellent service you are offering. I will definitely return and also I will invite my friends and family to join us at the next stay as we cannot send them alone, we’ll be too jealous.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the hospitality to dive with your team in the December Holidays in 2010. I will definitely recommend you guys to my friends here in Gauteng.

Dear Lindsay and Janice
My wife and I would just like to thank you once again for the past December holiday we spent at Toad Tree Cabins.
Like always, the facilities and service was excellent and every dive was an experience, which we could share with friends and family. Sea Escapes is a place where you'll always build new friendships and we are looking forward to seeing you again in April 2011
Thank you for your professionalism and kind-heartedness.
Hi Janice and Lindsay,
I just wanted to once again thank you guys for a fantastic stay. We had great fun staying at your place and look forward to staying with you guys in the future.
I would suggest that you guys go down the route of using Adwords on Google as it has been a fantastic tool in getting new business for us and has once again landed us a big contract.
But once again thanks for going out of your way to make us feel at home and to Lindsay for trying to help Melody with her diving beyond the call of duty.
Please come and visit us when you are next in Jhb.
If I could rate it lower I would; WE WERE ROBBED WHILE IN OUR ROOM. On our last day we were packing and our 1 year old daughter was tired and needed a nap. We were staying in a self cater unit and had a separate bedroom. While we were in the back packing our daughter napped in the front area. Our front door was locked with the deadbolt lock on the door. As the units have no Air-con we had to leave the windows open and the provided fans on. While our daughter had a nap someone, using a homemade stick, reached through the security bars and took the keys out of the deadbolt. The stick was approximately 3 meters long so this wasn't a simple reach.... these guys had done this before. My wife heard a small noise we thought was our daughter and opened our bedroom door to have a look... OUR FRONT DOOR WAS WIDE OPEN. We looked around and found the stick along with the personal belongings that were missing and stolen. The owners of Toad Tree Cabins assured us this was a first… but we know better. I spoke with other guests that day and on previous days we were there only to find out other cabins had been robbed earlier that week. Our host did not feel any need to tell us about it. Our situation was not shared either, hence why I am writing this today. I personally walked their secure fence perimeter myself, looking for items they may have discarded of my wifes, and witnessed several previously repaired holes were thieves had passed before as well as the hole used for our robbery.
As a side note we also had to exterminate at least 2 large cockroaches per night and on one occasion my wife was awoken by one running across her pillow shortly after going to bed. Relatively speaking this was a minor concern but needs to be raised none the less.
Hi Janice, I transferred R200 today - please give it to the maids with my thanks. Thanks again for a really unforgettable holiday. The dives were fantastic, and the whale sharks and mantas on our first day were just incredible. To top it off we saw a leopard on the banks of the St Lucia estuary on Saturday. Thanks Again.
Hi Janice/Lindsay, thanks for your hospitality during our stay last week, we really enjoyed our stay.
Lindsay thanks for your patience, and for being a excellent instructor, really enjoyed the last three dives, looking forward to diving with you again.
All the best!
Hi Janice & Lindsay, I must say, our experience with you guys was awesome and I hope that we will be able to come visit soon!!!

Just a short note to thank both of you for the most wonderful weekend at Toad Tree Cabins from 24 to 26 September 2004. The hospitality, professionalism and relaxed atmosphere certainly ensured that we all had a good weekend and will be back again.
It was a pleasure diving with Sea Escapes and we all have the memories of an extremely pleasant weekend. Each one of thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent with you and it is just a pity that we are now back in the hustle and bustle of Johannesburg. If I had my own way, we would have stayed longer.
Be rest assured that our next trip to Sodwana will be with no other Dive Charter and we all look forward to seeing you soon again.
Greg, Monica, Anton, Lesley and Reon.
Hi Janice, hi Lindsay,
Thank you so much for the great time we could spend at your wonderful place! We were looking at our pictures and we all wished that it could be last Friday again!
Thank you as well for the little gecko, it will remember me of an unforgettable weekend in South Africa when I am back in germany (not looking forward at all to going back!)
Hope to see you again,
Warot, Matthias G., Matthias F., Benny, Leif, Jan and Sabine
Just wanted to let you know how much fun we had with you, diving, drinking, playing darts..... We made it back to Miami safe and sound and now must start to look for jobs.
Thanks again for the great diving and laughs.....Laurie
