Fantastic stay at Prospect Cottage. Neville and Liz are wonderful hosts and spoilt us wrotten :). Cottage is extremely well fitted. From our arrival and welcome (where the kettle had already been boiled), to the sweets/marshmallows in the rooms to snack on, everything was beyond our expectations. Even the bathroom has emergency supplies in case we needed a paster or had forgotten a razor or toothepaste. I cannot thank you guys enough for the superb stay and comfort. Slept soundly after our month long trip to Natal and back. And as for the views from the lounge and deck - beautiful, relaxing and just what was needed. Extremely highly recommended and we will be back Neville and Liz. Thanks so much for your attention and professional touches throughout the cottage.
