Verified reviewexcellent

Yet again what a wonderful stay we had with Mary and Derek. The nest is a secluded haven where we can relax and do our 'own thing' after so much travelling. I cannot recommend this venue highly enough. We will be booking our stay soon for 2012 as we would not stay anywhere else.

Verified reviewvery good

We are a family of four. Our boys are 2 and 4 years old. The cottage was everything we could have wanted for - comfortable, clean and spacious. The boys enjoyed having a bath in the bathroom and not just a shower as so many establishments have. They also enjoyed playing in the beautiful garden and we had a great braai and dinner on our little deck. We found the cottage very centrally located and had lovely day trips from there.
