5 out of 5 people recommend staying here
We spent 4 nights here - enough to visit Cape Vidal, Umfolozi game reserve, do a hippo boat trip and visit the croc centre. Its perfectly situated with only a 5 min walk to the main street with shops and restaurants or to the boat jetty. The street the house is in itself is very peaceful though. There was loads of room for us - 2 families with children (9, 6 & 2). We all loved the pool which was clean and well kept. It is lovely how the master bedrooms open out onto the pool. The house is clean and well equipped. The sheltered outdoor eating area means we could eat outside whatever the weather. The owners are particularly helpful - in particular posting back to us an iPod left behind!
It was excellent and the best choise we ever had. Would like to come back at any time. The owners are very nice people and Zandile is the " jewel" of this house.
In one word - WOW. Clean, spacious, well equipped, well serviced, excellent location - wish we had stayed longer. Family of five (Mum, Dad + 17, 14 & 9 years old).
We had an excellent time and we certainly would love to visit again in the future with our friends. We have already recommended it to friends.
