After our short drive along a country road we stepped out into the beautiful grasslands of De Zeekoe. Our first impressions remained throughout our stay as this is an inviting, very pretty and restful location, brimming over with such warm and gracious hospitality from all the staff.
The bathrooms were sizable, stocked with interesting soaps, plush towels and fresh bathrobes. Fresh flowers were placed in both the bathroom and bedrooms along with clean, crisp bedding and a tastefully placed pillow arrangement that dominated the bed. Our bedroom had a porch which was furnished with comfortable chairs and pillows, and looked out to the elephant grasses beyond. Lovely view.
The meals were very tasty and generous in proportion to our appetites, as well as a diverse and interesting choice of foods.
The out door pool was clean and a welcoming pleasure.
Paula, the owner, was such a gracious and hospitable lady, welcoming guests during the mealtime, and making sure all was well. A very kind and unexpected, personal touch.
De Zeekoe was a highlight for us and we would highly recommend this little place of paradise to all.
