Nelspruit (Mbombela) Reviews
I had had the pleasure of sleeping in Patsy (the converted school bus) before so I stayed in one of the containers this time. I was blown away by how cleverly the shipping container had been utilised to make spacious, elegant and comfortable accommodation. The decor is so imaginative and pleasing on the eye. Janine has a wonderful gift for interior design and Gavin knows how to marry form with the wonderful bush environment. I had the folding doors open day and night during my three-day stay and with just the mosquito net between me and the elements. The sounds of birds, toads and wildlife helps to create such a relaxing atmosphere. The hosts are so enthusiastic about their off-the-grid venture and are only too happy to explain their set-up. They have established marked walks around the homestead and seating areas to just admire the beautiful panoramic views. The homestead is just a 10-15 minute drive from the centre of Nelspruit.
Janine and Gav cannot do enough for their guests. They love the area and have established a network of contacts amongst other hostelries and service providers so can help in planning activities and make recommendations to make the most of your stay.
As well as the gorgeous surroundings, the care and attention to detail by the hosts just makes you walk around the plot with a huge smile on your face and all the tension and cares of modern life just evaporate. I loved their four huge hounds, two Great Danes and two Rhodesian Ridgebacks, and followed them galloping around Kokiville. I spent many an hour with Gavin and Janine putting the world to rights over a bottle of Windhoek lager or a nice South African Shiraz and replaying the 1995 Rugby World Cup or great moments in cricket. In your fridge, the hosts thoughtfully provide milk. The well-appointed room has as a Nespresso machine with capsules, tea bags, that South African favourite, rusks, and some welcoming sherry. And for those unable to break free of the modern world, there is good Wi-Fi.
The shower has a great jet of water thanks to a pressure pump Gavin installed. There is a barbecue area and, on the decking outside the container, comfortable seats to look at the starry sky and commune with nature. I can’t recommend this place enough. I suggest you extract as much information about the area and activities in the area from your boundlessly enthusiastic hosts. They suggested the Sudwala caves to me and I had a fantastic time exploring the World’s oldest dolomite caves.
