Guest Comments

Initially booked this venue because it is one of a few dog-friendly establishments. I can however definitely recommend it for any stay -friendly hosts and an excellent balance between the comfort of everything you need in a house, with the added benefit of unspoilt nature at your front door. We stayed in the Yellowood Cottage. It is well equipped and was serviced everyday - with a smile - by Patience. Doggies enjoyed it even more!
Would like to revisit soon!

- Suzette Visser

Quiet and beautiful retreat, with friendly and accommodating management. Highly recommended!
- Vera van der Westhuizen

Awesome, absolutely awesome! We even came close to canceling some of our other accommodation to stay a little longer. If you're traveling from Jo'burg to the KNP and want an ideal layover, then this is a must (but budget at least 2 days stay).
- Daniel Kieser

Great hosts, warm and welcoming. Lots of peace and quiet - tranquil surroundings, but also enough activities to keep you busy
