“Perfect for our needs”
Reviewed 19 November 2013

We stayed in 2 cottages that were adjoining which was perfect for our needs. 4 adults and 2 children (4 and 2) meant our childless friends could sneak away and get some quiet and peace and still be close.

We loved the location of Squirrels Way, the fact that it had very good security, off-street parking, a heated pool for the kids, and being very close to a park and many shops and the motorway. It had everything we needed and if we needed more, Anne (owner) was very sweet and accommodating and helped us.Very clean, modern and tidy too.

We would definitely stay here again. Thanks Anne. The Wrights

These cottages are spacious, immaculately clean, great location with a stunning view of the
mountain. They have a very good security system with off street parking and are extremely well managed. We had a lovely two week stay and hopefully will be able to make a return visit.
Can highly recommend. You will not be disappointed.

Reviewed 22 February 2010

Squirrel's Way Cottage is made up of three units. Two of these face onto a nice very clean little swimming pool and the third (Unit 3) is round the back (or really the front as it is next to the main road). Unfortunately we were in Unit 3 but this only slightly detracted from our stay there. The unit has a sitting/dining room, one bedroom and a small kitchen and smaller bathroom. We were self-catering whilst there and there is a Woolworths shop plus bank, chemist and bottle shop just up the road (a couple of minutes' drive away).

Everything we needed was there and we had a lovely time although we were very jealous of our next door neighbours who had the bigger unit with patio next to the pool. Also because we were next to the road it was a little noisy. If we return (and we have every expectation that we will) we would definitely request the other unit.

The maid came in twice a week and the place was easy to keep clean and tidy otherwise. It was very secure (it was the only place we stayed in South Africa that had alarms fitted to individual units) with a space for parking.
