    Coming back to the guesthouse felt like coming home. Peaceful and the quietness just right so I was ready for my next outing. True South African hospitality and nutritious breakfasts a must to the start of the day, Being central made traveling so easy.

    Even though we arrived earlier than expected, Walter was all too helpful in getting our room ready. Lovely home away from home. Walked into an amazing full out breakfast spread the next morning. Will definitely return!
