Towels and bedding was changed every week which is great.The kids enjoyed the swimming pool, the tennis court and boating. The location is great . Not to far from beaches, shopping malls especially Canal Walk, Century City and close to great wine farms and restaurants. We will definitely be back👍👍👍👍

Das Haus ist ausgesprochen großzügig und verwöhnt auch die anspruchsvollsten Urlauber. Alles ist wunderbar gepflegt und wir haben uns ausgesprochen wohl gefühlt. Zusammen mit Rachel, die sich jeden Tag um alles kümmert, hatten wir eine wunderbare Zeit. Wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder.

The house, on a golf estate, has a warm cottagey feel with African themed entertainment areas. The bar was the location for many memorable parties during our stay! This was a repeat visit for us and we enjoyed our stay as much as we had on previous occasions. The owners were very friendly and hospitable and the services of the tireless housekeeper (Victoria) were outstanding. Accommodation was spotless. We have already booked again for next year!
