De Kraal is beautiful and well kept. Amanda and her crew is doing a brilliant job. 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👍👍👍👍
