“Fabulous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2014

I stayed at Veki's village for 2 weeks and it was lovely. Views were fabulous and there is a clearly signed path to the top of the hill where you can watch some stunning sun sets at only a short walk away. Staff were very friendly and helpful, chalets are clean, nicely decorated and comfortable, kitted out with all you need to self-cater and offer plenty of space. Parking is available too. I didn't venture into the pool because it was winter and too cold, but the electric blanket on the bed was a very welcome surprise. I will definitely stay here again. Thanks for such a nice stay!

Room Tip: Wifi is available but you have to borrow a dongle and buy credit.

Recently had a brilliant break - the hosts made it really special and were wonderful company. The beds are warm and comfortable too but nights can be chilly. The nights are wonderfully quiet to. We needed a break from the big city and after only 3 days it felt as if we'd been away for over a week! The place has a really unique artistic feel about it - the one partner is a well known international artist and you definitely see his creative style throughout! We even got to buy some of his art works yippeeee! Nothing is too much trouble for the hosts from showing us swaziland's own Ayers Rock, waterfalls, places to eat out at, where to buy crafts or to dance the night away. We arrived so stressed out - no problem they arranged for someone to come to our room for a fabulous aromatherapy massage! On the property they have mountain walks to suit anybody! The gardens are wonderful, swimming pool large and sunny, and brilliant sunsets and mountain views. What a charming place. We loved it!

Room Tip: Really discuss clearly your requirements with the hosts to get the correct room. The rooms / cottage...

We stayed at Veki's Village for almost one year and enjoyed every day of it! Located just outside of Mbabane, Veki's Village consists of 7 self-catering lodges in a wonderful mountainside setting. The gardens are delightful, the surroundings quiet and beautiful. All lodges are quite large, very comfortable and well equipped, and serviced daily during the week. Veki and David are wonderful hosts who care for all of their guests and make everybody feel at home. For us, it was, indeed, a wonderful home and experience. Without a doubt, the best place to stay in Swaziland/Mbabane - especially for long-term visits.

I stayed at Veki's place for a month. The cottages are so clean and comfortable, and you have a choice of view as well as style! I was pleasantly surprised to find such wonderful accommodations. I could have lived there for a whole year. The staff is wonderful and always ready to help. They put everything at my disposal. I even got an exercise machine, when in passing I mentioned to Veki, the owner, that I needed to do some exercise! I highly recommend this place.

Stayed in many places around Swaziland, but this was by far the worst. They overbooked us despite booking months in advance, then stopped returning calls and eventually forced some members of our party to find other accomodation. The service was surly and the facilities were dirty. At one point, the stove wouldn't light, so we politely asked the staff member to help us light it. She tried, then said it was broken. We stated that we would try to microwave our baked goods. Just as I was literally reaching for the microwave, she swooped in and microwaved her own dinner for the next 5 minutes. Locals/non-guests blasted music all night and as early as 4:30 in the morning with no objection from the staff. Tea and coffee are apparently NOT complimentary. The dorm room was really just a bedroom where they'd crammed an extra 2 bunk beds. If you don't know the others staying in the room, it would make for an uncomfortable night. The common area was always full of non-guests, such that guests had to spend all time in their rooms. Ceilings and bathrooms were moldy, heater in the room didn't work, and the decor is sparse and like something out of the Hostel horror movie series. If you are looking for a relaxing, quiet, clean atmosphere with friendly staff, stay anywhere else in Swaziland! Swaziland is small enough and public transport is good enough that any advantage this place might have due to location is nullified by the extreme crappiness of everything else.
