Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Peace, tranquility and great birding.
Situated on the outskirts of town away from the hustle and bustle of the town. delightful garden setting making for quiet and peaceful downtime after a busy day. For the discerning bird watcher, the garden has plenty to offer - I've recorded over 80 species in the garden during my stay. Not only that, other great birding spots in Northern KZN are close by including Memel, Wakkerstroom, Seekoeivlei Nature Reserve, Normandien pass and Nambiti Game Reserve all within an hours drive.
