Chelaya Lodge is singularly the best and most enjoyable stay we have EVER had at ANY lodge we have been to. Your professional approach, the most accomplished way in which you conduct your trade and the very personal touch and warmth!

Verified reviewexcellent

We loved every minute of our stay in Sunset Cottage. We love the homestead, the gardens and the pool and will come back soon; sad you are already booked for 2013 Xmas! Every room is clean, tidy and well equipped. The kids loved feeding all the chickens and ducks and we loved your openness and hospitality
