Ian is an excellent host that goes above and beyond to make his guests' stay enjoyable. The homely feel allows any traveller to feel welcome and comfortable. The food is 5* and company even better

I will start by saying everything about this accommodation was perfect, no exaggeration. Ian was an insanely helpful host and wasn't even upset when we were very late arriving. The home was beautiful and clean and very vibey. Wonderful breakfast in the morning and he let my friends take over the kitchen to cook a big meal! We had a car and found the location extremely safe/convenient and could lock the car behind his gate. I would go back to Johannesburg again just to have this accomidation!
