A property of the highest quality

5 of 5
This property stands out as one of the best presented we have stayed at on our very many visits and locations in SA. Although it is attached to the owners accommodation the layout provides complete privacy. The kitchen is superbly equipped and there is a high quality Weber to use in the lovely courtyard style garden. Lounge, quality bedroom and bathroom complete a very impressive property. Only slight downside is a slightly iffy wifi. Highly recommend.
