Enjoyed our stay. Old world charm and staff of Samuel and Gladys were very nice. Hot water for showers wasn't available in all rooms but possibly due to operation instructions. Nice place.

We were welcomed our first night with our hostess finding an excellent private driver for us. We had 9 family members and the house was just perfect- to having evening drinks by the pool to watching cricket games on the TV, we had a marvelous time Our cooks maked us fantastic meals. The house was lovely and a great location in Karen.
