Seriously the cutest, kindest little place we could have ever stayed at! Everything was arranged for us without us ever having to ask! DInner and safari reservations, great breakfast and the kindest hospitality we encountered on our honeymoon! Can't recommend this place enough. Scenery is beyond perfect and Jo really made us feel like family.

Gerald's Gift Guest House is an excellent place to stay when in Addo. It is 15 km from the main entrance to Addo Elephant National Park, approximately 5 km from a very good restaurant (Hazel's Organic Restaurant). The rooms are quite large. We had an door towards the garden/pool; the garden is very peaceful. The rooms were quiet and we were not disturbed by any noise (and noise is a big no-no for us.
The staff was very friendly, polite, service minded and knowledgeable and had a lot of good ideas what to do when and where.
We will return if we get a chance and do not hesitate to give our warm recommendation.

We had a lovely 3-day stay at Geralds's Gift. An ideal oasis only 10 km from the Addo Elephant Park main entrance. We felt very much at home and Jo tended to our every need; from restaurant advice and bookings to picknick hampers and game drive reservations. The kids also loved the pool and the friendly dogs!! Our feeling welcome actually started with our reservation a few months earlier; Susan was happy to accommodate us (2 adults, 2 children) in a family room at a discounted rate. Thanks again for your flexibility and the excellent service!

A beautiful guest house of high quality in a wonderful area and so close to Addo Elephant Park. Rooms were extremely comfortable and house is stunning as well as the lovely gardens to admire. Some pleasant walks in the area.
