Marcia was readily available to ask questions and offer helpful packing suggestions. The directions and security instructions were spot on. The estate is gorgeous with incredible views of the river and surrounding mountains. The house itself is equipped with everything you could ever need and the wrap around verandah makes this a really special place to stay. We were a party of 7 ladies, ranging from 17-85 years and this was a perfect place to have a huge amount of fun. Thank you!!

Marcia's place is the perfect get away in the Midlands of KZN, the accommodation is fairly easy to get to, and the house is beautiful. As a complete unit for the money you can't go wrong, and Marcia was very helpful and sent clear instructions to access the property etc. Highly recommend place to stay on Airbnb.

A very well equipped home in an idyllic location. Great fly fishing, superb walks and mountain biking paths. Bird life was tremendous with 4 different raptor species spotted. The clean clear night air afforded us the wonderful opportunity of gazing at nebula and other star clusters.

Thank you Daryl. It is a pleasure to share our "little piece of Heaven" with a family like yours who truly appreciates what it has to offer. Thank you for your assistance with the basin. You are welcome back anytime.

We had a great winter holiday and would definitely recommend it. The house was clean and fully equipped and the fireplace and underfloor heating kept us comfortably warm. The beds were comfortable with quality linnen. Bathrooms were modern with great showers. No laundry facilities at the house. Ample seating and crockery for more than 8 people. The house is surrounded by beautiful nature with great views. Small game roams around freely. The nearest shops and restaurants are 15 min by car. Kids had lots of fun in nature although the house did not come with play equipment or a dedicated play area. The upper loft bedrooms are not suitable for children who can not manage stairs without supervision.
