Great self catering with regards to staying in a beautiful creative space. The unit is beautifully decorated, clean and spacious. The staff are super friendly and helpful. You are not directly in town so one needs to take a car to get into town but its a short few minutes drive. The only issue I had was with privacy. Each unit's outside area overlooks the next one! If you wish to braai/barbacue outside and their are guests staying alongside you, they can look over your outside area as each unit is elevated up from the next. I did notice trees have been planted, they are still in their infancy and I'm sure as they grow they will provide more privacy. No movie channels/news channels, only TV 1/2/3/e which are local s.african channels and are awful. I would have thought a 5 star establishment would have a bouquet of movie channels. Other than that a great stay.
