We stayed her for a night after a hectic visit to a game reserve and elephant back safari near Port Elizabeth and many flights. We were three generations - Granny, Mother and two daughters in their 20s - and were all weary when we arrived. Ralf and Stefan were so welcoming and helpful. Even though they had warned we wouldn't be able to get into our rooms until long after our arrival because we got to the house early in the morning, and they were completely full over the Christmas period, they had already got one room ready and swiftly had the others cleaned for us. They carried all our luggage up several stairs and allowed us to stay at the house and use the pool for the whole of the next day until we had to go to the airport for our evening flight. I messed up and didn't organise a taxi to take us to a restaurant a good half hour away and Ralf explained we wouldn't get there in time because taxis over the Christmas holiday would take at least an hour to come. Instead he drove us all the way there - though there was terrible traffic and it meant he spent hours of his Sunday evening getting back home. He was so gracious and kind about this. The next day when we were a little frayed he poured us all some sparkling wine. The house is beautiful, built for Lord nelson, and we had glorious balconies overlooking the pool. It is all spotless. The staff were charming and friendly and it is a lovely, safe area. It was great to be by the sea. I thoroughly recommend this place and these wonderful hosts who really care about their guests.
