What a wonderful welcome in an amazing setting. The owners are very helpful and kind. Nice touch with the homemade cookies on arrival and warm muffins left for us on one of the mornings. Well equipped for self catering, very comfortable throughout with a balcony to sit and watch the amazing variety of bird life.

Beside still waters is a wonderful place to stay. It has an amazing location beside the lagoon and it's slight distance out of the rest of wilderness means that it is lovely and quiet.

My wife and I stumbled across Besides Still Waters by chance... What a wonderful find! In a beautiful setting, we woke up with the sound of birds singing and the dawn breaking across the lake.
