Verified reviewexcellent

A real gem!! Beautiful spot. We had a house for ourselves with a mountain view. Everything was spotless and pleasant. We ordered meat and salads for a braai in the evening and had breakfast on the "stoep" in the morning. Our hosts were helpful and friendly but not ontrusive. Would definitely like to stay longer next time.
