Guest Comments

The place was very simple but nice and the owner was so friendly, she made us feel at home. Thank you for your service.
- Tshepo Mlangeni

We liked the way that we were welcomed, briefed on the facilities and then left alone to relax and enjoy. The cottage has been well set out - if a little small in the sleeping area - but all very comfortable.
- Peter Salter

It was all good - just could have done with a bit more space in the bathroom and a better shower curtain.

Very friendly. The beer was a bonus. Accessability to the beach front, etc. was good. The only downside was that being on the Main Road it was a bit noisy at times. But overall an excellent, reasonably priced facility. We will use it again.
