The moment you enter the guest house through the big double doors you are greeted by an unexpected sight of an indoor waterfall and fishpond. As the guests book in, fish inquisitively pop up for greetings. Immediately you feel at home.
Even more so, if your hostess shows you all the treasures to make you stay comfortable – the cozy lounge with the big fire place where you can sample our local wines, the verandah and the magical garden.
The lounge leads onto an exquisite long verandah with a reed ceiling. Sipping you first cup of coffee on the verandah, you have a view over the lush garden with a black swimming pool and the Orange River valley where the fish eagles circle the skies.
