Where pricing is "per unit" the Average Price Per Person based on maximum occupancy is used for the price range comparison. A search made for Homes and Villas however will always be based on the full daily rate of the unit irrespective of the number of people the unit sleeps.

Guest Comments

Our stay was a very unpleasant stay. The owners never greeted us or communicated with us during our stay. The place was dirty with all sorts of insects crawling on the floor. I would not recommend anyone to stay there.

We had a pleasant stay. Would recommend it for tourists.

I was so disappointed. The room was dirty,the floors hadn't been washed in a long time. I took my shoes off and walked barefoot and when I looked at it,it was black. The sleeper couches were broken,you can't sit or sleep on it. The tap in the kitchen was broken,the knob kept on falling off.
We were 5 people and they "borrowed" crockery from our room for other people. I had to share a single bed with my 5 year old son and there were ants everywhere!!!!


I wasn't impressed about the facilities,one of the units that we were using had an unpleasant smell coming from the en suite bathrooms that we couldn't even sleep in the room. The couches in the units were so dirty and were then covered with a sheet after we complained. On the website there is mention of rooms serviced daily and towels being supplied but these services were not offered during our 5 day stay, we had to ask for the towels but were told they are not being supplied because this is a self catering guesthouse.. the other unit we used was clean but couches are worn out and kitchen utensils are dirty that we had to clean each item before use.

We had a warm stay and I recommend this place, especially for big groups or family. We really felt at home.

Sleeping-OUT is proud to be South African
