"Cabin is very nice and cozy, but the dirt road leading to the cabin is not nice. It is NOT 20 km from town, yes about 20km dirt road until you get to a main road, but then still 20km into town. on avg it takes 45 - 60min to get to town. and it was not what I expected. If you just want bush, yes it is nice, but if you need to travel town, it is a big NO!!"

"My husband and myself escaped the crowds of Ballito and came to this very cosy cabin. We had a very quiet week with no people and no noise. It was bliss. Angela checked us in and showed us around and then we only saw her again when we needed her. There was a problem with the communal pool, and Angela organized us a pool on another property which we had to ourselves for the duration of our stay.There is a waterhole in front of the cabin, and we saw so many animals come to drink. Many different buck species, a jackal, warthog with her babies and Guinea fowl.I would recommend the cabin to anyone that just wants peace and quiet."
