What a beautiful spot, this gorgeous setting among the natural forests of Plett/Crags is simply breath taking. Very few places make you feel one with the forest like Moon Shine does. If you visit do take the time to walk down to the creek below, this is truly a place we will visit again.

Sue and Albert were excellent hosts, giving lots of information about nature and the surrounding areas. They accommodated us with special arrangements to stay in "Fly me to the moon" for our honeymoon in April 2017. This cabin is spectacular! Magnificent craftsmanship went into every small detail of the cabin, from the floor to the roof! The outdoor shower makes...

Loved staying in Tree Frog, the farm itself is so lovely and quiet, you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere but are literally just off the N2. Nice park for the children to play in with a pool for a refreshing dip. the lodge was fantastically furnished, with nothing left out and lovely comfy beds. Close to...

Creative genius design of the cabin's architecture and decor. Really nestled safely and privately in the forest. It feels like you are sleeping and showering in the trees - that you can see everything, but nothing can see you. Perfect size for a couple who cherish time in nature, solitude, peace, rejuvenation and who appreciate the efforts by the owners...

We absolutely loved staying in Moon Shine, everything was perfect, really helpful friendly service. TIP: If you take the really nice walk down through the forest to the river and pool - take bug spray! (there's mozzies) - it's worth it though for the views :) We'll definitely be back to Moonshine, it was nice being a bit out of...

We stayed in the unit "Fly me to the Moon" and I can report that I have been to the moon. The unit is a romantic stay for two people in the canopy of the ingenious forest. Expect shooting stars, glow worms on the forest floor and playing hide and seek with the Knysna Loerie. The view over the trees...

The accommodations were perfect for what we were looking for - a cabin in the woods. For heat, you even build your own fire. Fire wood provided. The bed has a heating blanket also. We stayed 5 nights. The cabin is located near the main highway to get to the Garden Route and back to the cabin. Parking is limited...

My husband and I spent 5 nights here in the special cabin for two during our honeymoon in August 2016. It is the perfect romantic hideaway. There is very little space but the place has everything that you need, amazing views and is close enough so that you can go out for dinner without having to drive too far. Perfect,...
