“Fantastic place and hospitality!”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

I thought the reviews that I have read here at tripadvisor about this place were a bit too good to be true - but I was wrong! I, my husband, our little daughter and my parents just recently spent two nights at Plumbago and it is really something extra -more than a guest house. It is a place to relax and be pampered by the wonderful hosts, the excellent food (don't even consider going to some boring place in Hazyview when you can have dinner here!) and the great views. Because there are only three suites, you have even more the feeling of being pampered and all the rooms are at a convenient distance from the main building which allows for additional privacy. The household pets are also adorable and add to the good spirits around..
Wish to come back soon!

Every aspect of our stay surpassed expectations, from the setting, to the accommodations and the food. On top of all that, our hosts were engaging, informative and very caring. Highly recommended. From a couple in NY.

Our five night stay at Plumbago was a peaceful break, enhanced by the great cuisine and friendly Propietors and staff together with Millie and Bella the two very friendly dogs. Plumbago, with it`s great pool, long scenic views from the lawn over endless banana plantations, was very central to the popular sites and towns in that area. There are endless views to behold in whichever direction you look or drive, a real treat to most. A recommended and great place to stay for almost any reason.

Room Tip: All three rooms were very nice

This is our second stay at this beautiful guest house. The accommodation is beautiful, lovely bed linens and the attention to detail is fantastic, every toiletry you could possible need and a very welcome decanter of sherry in the room. Our arrival was delayed by a day sadly due to one of our party being taken ill on the aircraft to Lanseria, the welcome we received made up for all the trauma of the previous day. The locations is beautiful overlooking the banana plantations and a perfect setting in which to unwind. Thank you Ilara & Robbie for making us so welcome and for the beautiful Birthday cake too!!! Hopefully we shall be able to stay longer next time.

We spent the three first nights of our honeymoon in Plumbago Guest House, pretty close to Kruger National Park gate. We loved the exclusivity. There are only three rooms in the guest house and we had the room next to pool & with view over the banana plantations at the neighbouring site.

Location is pretty distant from services in agricultural area, so car or transportation is needed if one wants to go out to eat/drink something - but we didn't. We were taken care of by Ilara and enjoyed her cooking for three nights - excellent 3-course meals every night. She even made us ex tempore light lunch one day when we arrived early from our safari.

Everything was taken care of - the bottle of sparkling waiting for us in our room, transportation to and from the airport, the room was perfect, meals top-notch... And the dogs were adorable also. Perfect start for our trip of a lifetime.

Room Tip: Room next to the pool is the most exclusive one, two others on the upper level are located next to e...

Plumbago is a must for anybody travelling to this beautiful part of South-Africa. You will be welcomed and loved and appreciated by Ilara and Robbie every minute of your stay. Prepare yourself for an experience you will always remember, enjoy the fantastic cuisine and view and sit back and relax. Share Plumbago with the people you love, you will not regret it! For me this is home away from home!

A great stay in a quiet and green surrounding area. The apartment has a well equiped kitchen including a washing machine. The view from the terrace was stunning. We felt very welcome by the lovely owners.
