“Perfect Guesthouse”
Reviewed 5 January 2012

Why spend a fortune staying inside the Kruger Park when you can have a personal, gorgeous cottage just 20 minutes from the Phabeni Gate? We stayed for 2 nights and spent one day in the Kruger, with Dawne making us a delicious packed breakfast and lunch.
Even when driving at night around the cottage, we saw some great game : a few owls, a family of side striped jackals, some bush babies.

The guesthouse itself was beautiful, with a lovely interior, great view of Hazyview and an army of wonderful dogs. Really recommended for anyone traveling as a family, couple or solo.

Stayed December 2011, travelled with friends

Reviewed 7 July 2011

The property is spectacular, isolated, remote, romantic, but only minutes from Hazyview and a few more to Phabeni gate at Kruger. Dawne does a lot of the interior design for near bye private game lodges and the rooms are fantastic, lots of natural light, big beds, heavy duvets, subtle yet elegant. Both Dawne and Rob are absolutely wonderful, helpful, warm and welcoming and there's an entourage of friendly dogs patrolling the yard, which makes you feel that much more at home. Intimate and private yet open and generous, a perfect balance for an ideal getaway. We stayed in the self-accommodating unit which was perfectly equipped, even had a dishwasher, and the bathroom was big with both a shower and a separate bath. Highly recommended, we were sad to go and are looking forward to someday making it back.
