Super impressed, we could arrive anytime on the day of arrival, we were welcomed and taken care of by beautiful young lady named Pledge, as late as it was she helped with luggage and settling in comfortably. The place was stunning, foresty, cosy and warm, country feeling with home luxury, we loved it! Food was good, lovely pool and outside fire and braai, owner very friendly and caring! Thanks soooooo much, God bless.
