Very cosy, comfortable with everything you need. A light at the lapa/braai area would be nice.

I loved relaxing in the cozy cabin. Only issue is the dirt road , it needs to be graded, very tough for my car to maneuver and dodge big rocks. Other than that, really nice.

Well looked after and cozy establishment. With the inclement weather, the fireplace was very welcome.
