Peaceful, friendly, and close to the highway and airport. Staff are very helpful and professional, and breakfast was scrumptious. Secure property, and 10mins drive from nearest mall. Quiet neighbourhood.

We loved the homely atmosphere at this luxury boutique hotel. It was beautifully decorated, had the BEST breakfasts, the nicest staff and a cat to add to the lovely surroundings. It also had a great location.

Great place to return to after a hectic day in the city, sit under the trees and listen to the birds with a chilled drink. Mind that you watch out for the local cat trying to ambush the birds at the bird bath.

Hello, and thank you so much for your lovely review! We are very proud of our beautiful flourishing garden, and particularly love that the birds are constant visitors! Fortunately, they are wise to the 'cat moves', and always remain intact :) It was a pleasure hosting you, and we look forward to your next visit. Warm regards Sabine ~ Pakiso...
