Owner helpful for site visits and day planning. Food was good and filling. House was nicely arranged and did not feel crowded with other guests. Beds were uncomfortable and hard, however. Due to Sabie's limited restaurants, dinner was hard to find good options. Sabie was not very tourist oriented.

Good accommodation, but double bed a little small. The room is large enough for a kig size bed.
