Our party of three spent three nights (7, 8 and 9 September 2012) at Boven Villa. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel welcome. The setting at the end of a cul-de-sac in a large garden is beautifully tranquil with lovely views towards the mountains. The rooms (“Elephant” and “Lion”) were elegantly furnished, and the beds inviting...

I highly recommend Boven Villa at Waterval Boven. Sean, the host, could not be more charming, helpful and accomodating. He is also a fantastic chef. The home is a lovely thatch with great views and conviniently located, and small extras like the nicely stocked bookshelf made all the difference.

I've been there twice now for the weekend, and it makes a great break from the busy roads of JHB. Perfect place to chill and do absolutely nothing. Shaun is a great host, and an even better cook. Keep it up!

We found Boven Villa a charming and comfortable place to overnight en route to the Kruger Park. Sean , the owner and host, is every bit as charming and accommodating. He catered for our special needs and cooked a delicious vegetarian meal for dinner. We stayed in the Elephant room with a ballroom size and well appointed bathroom en-suite. When...

We dropped in by the three of us on a business trip for the Railways. We've been very welcomed and felt right at home from the beginning. Very nice place to stay, very good hosts!

There are a few other accommodation options in the area (a convenient journey breaker to and from Jo'burg and Kruger), but Sean immediately and enthusiastically responded to my enquiry and that is how I chose Boven Villa. Due to a faulty GPS, I got lost in the town, but unprompted he came to fetch and convoy me to the Villa...

In order to break up a Friday night drive from Maputo to Johannesburg, I arranged a stop over at Boven Villa. The drive took longer than expected, so we were met at the gate by the owner Sean to divert us to the soon closing kitchen (20:00)of the nearby pub! He had even phoned ahead to ask them to wait...

We started our holiday with Sean in Boven Villa, in the village of Waterval Boven. This village is located halfway between Johannesburg and Kruger NP. The rooms in the villa are nice, but it is owner Sean who makes the difference. Great host and great chef, he made us a wonderfull diner. Just a great way to start your holiday.
