I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the guesthouse.

Li-Anne went out of her way to make me feel welcome. I had transport problems getting there before the office closed, however, it wasn't a problem for her to wait for me to arrive.

The accommodation, was private, clean, and absolutely wonderful!

The breakfast provided was ample and also satisfying variety.

The only, very very small problem, is that the tea was only rooibos and I can't tolerate the taste thereof. It would be nice to have had ceylon tea available.

I would strongly recommend a friend, relative, visitor to stay there.

Thank you! You'll most definitely see me there again!
