What a wonderful guesthouse! Everything that was promised and more. Not only did we enjoy breathtaking views, the hosts, Herbie and Erika were very welcoming and the breakfast was spectacular. Seldom do you find a property that is as good, if not better, than the photos on the website. We had a wonderful time and will recommend staying at Zimbali...
