This is a beautiful part of KwaZulu Natal, and Shenindor is a lovely piece of paradise with a gorgeous garden, stunning views and peaceful country atmosphere. Bridget is a warm and welcoming hostess and is ably assisted by her very friendly pets! Her care and attention to detail made it a happy and comfortable stay!

We had a wonderful stay at this tranquil, spectacular B&B. It is a great place to stay either for a couple of days or a week. Great views from all the rooms and the service is truly excellent. We will definitely be going back!
