Stayed here for our honeymoon. Definitely not a kids stay, much more suitable for couples. Breathtaking views! The rooms are well kitted, lovely clean, spacious bathrooms. The common area is cosy, with a fireplace and pool. To date, the best, fluffiest scrambled eggs I have ever had in my life. The owner is so sweet and obliging and tried to...

Great Getaway from the daily rush of life. Lovely accommodation with privacy that makes it a great stay for a romantic weekend. Beautiful views, quiet, tranquil, a place to rest. Close to some of the best restaurants in SA. Friendly host.

The breakfast in the morning was perfect, poached eggs cooked to perfection. The dinner on our 1st night was restaurant quality. We had a local SA steak and was very good. I would recommend arranging the...

Absolutely faultless, accommodation was amazing, honesty bar prices were reasonable and fantastic location. A plunge pool to the rooms would be a bonus. Food cooked by the owner John was exceptional. Would stay again.

This is an amazing place for honeymooners. The chalets are comfortable, spacious, clean, has good facilities, and a spectacular view. John (the host) was fantastic. He made us a delicious dinner and breakfast every morning (including eggs Benedict). Porcupine Pie is also situated in a nice location, because even though it is very secluded, it is not far from some...

Our stay was wonderful! We do not have one negative thing to say. John was the perfect host and an excellent cook! The location is awesome, not too far from town but also far enough to be in the forest with no one in sight!

It is worth to make all the way from Wilderness to Porcupine Pie. The place is fantastic. The Chalets are spacious and nicely furnitured. But the most spectacular thing is the great view from the balcony or even from your bath tub. It is a perfect place for some romantic days - enjoy!
