    First night of our Garden Route Tour
    Lovely place with lots of old world charm. We rented the family unit that has the pool directly out front - it confortably fit the 4 of us. Great breakfast and they even had an ‘honor bar’ where you could get a cold beer and they just put it on your tab. Overall great hospitality. The only suggestions I have is to have better quality wine selection in the ‘honor bar’. The white wine was pretty much not drinkable. Also there is no airconditioning - lots of fans provided, but may be a bit too warm if you are there in the summer months. We were here at the very end of summer.
