“A wonderful place!”
Reviewed 14 April 2013

We're so glad that we included a night at Happy Lands in our trip and definitely hope to return. Nita and Mike were amazing hosts and although our stay was short, we felt like part of the family. Our room was comfortable and included an outdoor shower. We had dinner and breakfast on the veranda which overlooks the gorgeous garden. After breakfast we took a walk around the garden and into the citrus farm, accompanied by Buttons, one of the friendly dogs. A very special place.

Such a great place to stay Nita and Mike are amazing hosts nothing is too much trouble.We were initially in a small cottage with SC which we were going to do but we moved to cara Cara room as it was larger and had a delightful garden of its own and a terrace.The new SC units looked very nice and Nita showed us the other B&B rooms in the house which were spacious and well furnished.We loved the welcome by the family labradours it made us miss our dog!they even came with us when ever we had a walk around the lovely gardens with citrus trees and avocados( not yet ripe)and wonderful trees.Try and stay for Nitas wonderful dinner one evening we had the best bobotie ever,its was all delicious and so well presented.

We stayed at Happy Lands in December 2012. There are 3 self catering rooms and 3 b&b rooms. We were a rather large group so we booked all the rooms. We felt at home from the first moment on. Each room is different and has it's own character. There is one room with an added feature of an outdoor shower - lovely to shower under the Addo star-filled skies. The rooms were clean and neat and had the necessary conveniences. The swimming pool and braai area were great - we used these extensively. Happy Lands has a beautifully maintained large garden area. One certainly has the feeling of being on holiday within these beautiful surroundings. We were thoroughly spoilt! The service is very good and nothing is too much trouble for Mike, Nita or the ladies who work for them - they certainly went the extra mile.

Having made the booking from abroad, I appreciate that Mike and Nita always responded promptly to my emails.

We would certainly recommend Happy Lands!

We happened to stay here for one night as part of a stopover in between visiting the Addo National Park. The stay was actually arranged by our tour guide so we weren't really sure about what to expect.
I have to say that myself and my wife were pleasantly surprised by the hospitality and warmth given by Mike and Nita. The food served was really homely with special dishes made for my vegetarian wife.
We were only upset that we had to leave the next day. There's a great orange orchard and it was great to walk around it with their friendly dogs following you begging you to play fetch with them by throwing oranges!
This place definitely had to be the highlight of our stay while we were at the Cape.
I'm sure you will not regret your decision to stay here if you're in the area.

I had to find accommodation for my son (19 years old) whilst he was travelling in South Africa.... and found Mike and Nita at Happy Lands for him to stay 20 nights. He was well looked after, the food is second to none, and he always had the dogs to keep him company. Mike and Nita were able to plan trips for him and he would definitely recommend Happy Lands as a base for exploring the area. I can add that the price of accommodation and meals was very good value.
