A house which is tasteful und wonderful furnished - hosts, which are very attentive, eager to spoil their guests with wonderful breakfast und drinks in the lovely garden - extremely helpful with reservations for dinner and other activities. We felt very good and an can recommend it warmly.

Everything was better than we had expected. The attention to detail from the welcome to leaving was perfect. Our room (deluxe) was very well appointed with an extremely comfortable bed. Breakfast with masterchef Margot was foodie heaven.

Not a particularly scenic approach to, or view from this Guest House, but once inside, everything was "five star". This was undoubtedly the most tastefully decorated and well maintained guest house we have stayed in and Vim and Margot have every reason to be proud of their efforts and were perfect hosts.

We were celebrated our honeymoon and it was just a perfect place! The rooms are well decorated, the atmosphere is warm and the best was the breakfast- with home made bread made by Wim, which was just great! Highly recommended!

We stayed here for a night on our honeymoon as we were booked for a tour at the Cango Wildlife Ranch (I highly recommend it!) and it's a short drive away. The guesthouse was exceptional; more a boutique hotel really. The room was more like a suite- it was huge! With a separate dressing room area & a lovely big...

Fantastic welcome by out hosts Margot and Wim. Nothing too much trouble, and the best B&B breakfast I have had. House and rooms are SPOTLESS, with crisp white linen in our room. Ample space to accommodate an extra bed for our daughter. Room facilities include Nespresso machine, minibar, TV, HIFI, WIFI, safe etc. Very secure.
