Friendly hosts, both Leonie and the owners make the arrival in this river paradise a wonderful experience. Theroom was excellent for what we required. We could eat out in the village, have a light breakfast and barbeque in full view of the river at night. John gave very good information on cycling routes around and out of town. We have been twice and will certainly return!!
We spent a lovely 4 nights in the self catering unit. The room is spacious and neat with all you need to prepare your basic meals. Pool was sublime and the sunsets over river were stunning. We will be back.
I was captivated by the beautiful photos online and booked immediately. About twenty minutes drive from Hermanus on the River Klein, this is a perfect retreat if you are looking for tranquility and natural beauty! My only regret is we couldn't stay longer, I just wanted to sit on our verandah and watch the river flow on by. We were blessed to be there on the night of the Super Moon- no photograph could do it justice! A special mention to the lovely Leonie, who made us feel very welcome and helped with our onward travel arrangements.
