Returned again (4th time) Great Braai area, lovely décor, welcoming hosts, Home from Home!. The best of both worlds - Sunday river on one side & wildlife on the other side (Addo). See you again next year. Thanks for the lovely stay.

Spacious accommodation, but the 2nd bedroom is in fact part of the living room and kitchen, so not private. The apartment is also on the same property as the owner's house, so not completely private.Establishment Response:I have only recently opened up my private area, being the walk through for the guests to utalise the Stoop section, where they can enjoy a panaramic view of the Sundays River. Which was never used by guests before, as they have/ had their own entrance to the river. This is perhaps where the not so private comment comes from, as it is a walk through from the guests living area...
