Very friendly staff on arrival, to serving breakfast on our stoep, This was a good experience at the start of our tour.The setting and the gardens( in spite of the drought) were great, the accommodation most adequate though traditional. Everything was very well kept and you could feel the presence of the owners and the care given.
