This was my very first trip to South Africa and it was very memorable for me! There were many reasons why I wanted it to be the "trip of my lifetime" and it was!!! The positive aspects of this B&B started before I left SF. I only decided to take this trip 2 weeks before I went -so when the Hostess and owner responded quickly to my email questions about the availablility of a single room and desire for a quick trip to a Game Reserve - with timely and clear answers and a guided tour I was relieved and thankful. I guess the uniqueness of this B&B was the friendliness, warmth and love that you feel from the hostess, staff and other guests while you are staying there- you were part of the "family". The owner continued to be helpful with travel and dining suggestions only when and if you wanted advice. A walk to the beach (3 blocks) and back followed by an excellent breakfast was a delightful way to start your day. The rates for a room were affordable, and they were private and clean and filled with all the necessities. The "common " room with books, tv, pool and available drinks helped me feel " at home". It was very hard to leave this cozy, comfortable "home" in a faraway land , I have promised myself -I will be back!
