Great hikes which children can easily participate in and beautiful views. I particularly liked the stone cottage which had everything we required and an awesome braai area. My only recommendation would be to check out the gas geyser as the water was luke warm.

Kokopelli cottage is a beautiful quiet retreat from the city. Stunning surroundings and all the peace you can ever need.
