We stayed for 2 nights and should have stayed longer. The cabins are magical, you feel if you are the only ones there. The view from bed is just trees and birds and walks in the ground are tranquil. Just down the road is the most stunning beach, miles of yellow sand and spectacular dunes. The food was great and we had a celebratary meal under the stars after we beat South Africa at cricket in Jo'burg. Had seen the other days live but watched the final nail biting hours with South Africans in a hotel bar in Port Elizabeth, they were generous losers. A great start to our trip along the Garden Route. We will return to SA, Jo'burg and Thunzi again without a doubt.
