Verified reviewexcellent

Our stay "At Rest" from January 26 - March 1, 2017 was delightful. A very comfortable house, well equipped, with view over the River Touw, a refreshing water to swim in, the idyllic scenery even allowed birdwatching, not far from excellent restaurants and the gorgeous beach of Wilderness. The best accommodation we had in South Africa during the last 12 years. Ilza took good care of us and helped with useful advices.
