Need a car but no so remote after all you are in the Eastern Cape. Good location to Addo which was a complete joy. Lovely garden, good food. Lezl was a charming host and helped us enormously with local knowledge. Supper brought to your door cooked by Lezl and rooms cleared and beautifully cleaned by first class friendly staff. Felt totally safe and secure. Would recommend to friends

Stayed: November 2009, travelled as a couple

we chose the cottages because they are very convenient for Addo Elephant Park and Schotia Safaris ( both of which we recommend )
Located on a dairy farm the cottages are large , spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated They are in a remote location and you need to drive to get to shops and restaaurants but don't let this put you off . There is a well stocked Spar supermarket about 25 mins away and the Nanaga farm stalls are a little closer , Nanga serves good lunches and is well known for its tasty pies (don't miss these ! ) If you stay at Green Tree on a B&B basis you can organise for supper to be delivered to your cottage each night . Supper is cooked by Lezi (the owner ) and we were very pleased with the quality of food she provided (especially the boboti !) Breakfasts are served in the dining room and are generous and well presented .
Lezi is a GREAT host She is very friendly caring and helpful I would recommend these cottages to anyone visiting this area

The Guesthouse is situated on a dairy farm, which belongs also to the owners Lezl and Datie. They have 4 different cottages, we had cottage No. 1 "Porcupine". As you can see on the pics, a very very nice, comfortable and huge room, almost an appartment as it had a small kitchen incl. a fridge with cold beverages.
Lezl welcomed us and showed us everything. Very friendly and helpful people. She also prepared the dinner for us, which you need to pre-book in advance. Was absolutely perfect with everything you need. She even prepared for us 2 different dishes, as one of us is a vegetarian.
Breakfast is also served in the dining room for everybody. She prepared some warm food here for breakfast like french toast or a tuna mushroom pie aswell; breakfast consisted of cereals, bread & toast, coffee, orange juice, fresh fruits, yoghurt, freshly baked muffins, etc. So a very good start into the day.
If you want to go to the Addo Elephant Park, Shamwari Game Reserve, Sunshine Coast at the Indian Ocean or Schotia Safari´s this is the perfect place to stay. But you must have a car here.
They also have a small swimming pool there and some playground toys for kids.
Their son has also started his own bizz with a small "zoo", but be aware of the small male goat :-).
We would definetely come back and stay there again, we enjoyed it very much.

We really wanted to see some of the real South African countryside. Warm friendly welcome from the owner Lezl, who showed us our cottage, beautifully decorated and so cosy and clean. Dinner is great, Lezl's cooking is yummy do request the Bobotie! Breakfast has a huge choice of food.
We really enjoyed Addo Elephant Park (we drove through ourselves and saw loads of elephants, zebras and buffalo) and Schotia (Lezl even sorted out the booking the wildlife and guides were amazing) and the local sand dunes.
Very relaxed beautiful place, we have some lovely memories of seeing the farm with the red soil and dairy cows! It is a half an hour drive to the local town but this is a little gem and would be lovely for a romantic stay or for a group of friends. If your husband is going to the footie or rugby the wives could happily chill out here!!!

We stayed at the fabulous Green Tree for 3 nights and could have stayed so much longer, the hospitality and attention to detail shown by Lezl and her staff is outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble and the food prepared was top class. It is a perfect location for a visit to Addo and Schotia. Will definately stay at the Green Tree when next in the area
