We LOVED this place ! We were so lucky to get a last-minute booking for two nights over New Year's Eve. Chantal and Vaughn were so helpful and friendly as were all the staff. Breakfast was DIVINE and delivered to us each morning. The views are unbeatable ! from our cottage as well as the stunning pool at the top of the resort. There are marked trails for mountain bike riding as well as hikes. Will definitely return with friends and family !

This has got to be one of the most special places along the Northern Drakensberg! The views are epic, you won't find any better!! My favorite part was enjoying a sun-downer in the rock pool looking onto the magnificent Amphitheatre. The property is also located very close to a golf course, Sterkfontein Dam and the Royal Natal National Park; plenty of activities! The friendly owners live on the property and were on hand to help us with any queries we had. A friend and I were planning on hiking the Amphitheatre the next morning and the family couldn't assist enough with directions, maps, advice etc. Wonderful stay and I would highly recommend!!
