Good day, Thank you for taking the time to review you recent stay at Highgrove. We truly appreciate your positive comments as we really do thrive to provide the best service in the region for our SPA, Lodge and Tours! We are really glad you enjoyed the apartment with your private pool, but do apologise for the leaves - we do clean the pool twice a day without trying to disturb guests but the trees, although very beautiful and almost a tropical jungle, do pose a problem. We do have walks in the forest area of the lodge as well for avid bird watchers and I am sure when next you visit, this could be on your list. I have passed on your great comments with regards to the food as our Chefs do take pride in their profession and really appreciate it too! As SA is a wonderful wine producing country we really like to support our local products and glad you enjoyed them too! We look forward to welcoming you back to Highgrove in the near future!

Good day, Thank you for visiting Highgrove and taking the time to review. We do strive for service excellence and are happy that we managed to achieve this with your recent stay! We value your comments and will certainly look into heating the pool, but we do have a full SPA on site with a heated jacuzzi which is available. There are two roads available for use when it rains even though they are not tarred, we do not seem to have many problems. We do appreciate your comments with regards to the food and will certainly pass them on to the chefs. We look forward to welcoming you back to Highgrove in the near future. Kind regards, Kathy
