Verified reviewexcellent

The splendour of the Drakensberg is easily experienced through the position of this home . The views and position are probably unbeatable , and the large house has ambiance and atmosphere that is difficult to beat. It easily accomodates 8 adults - maybe a few more , and a wonderful, spacious setting for kids. Access to Monks Cowl is less than 5 minutes . Position, views, space , ambiance - - if this is what you're after in your visit to the Drakensberg , then Ondini has it all.
