I give 6 stars out of 5 to my hosts. They are welcoming, flexible and go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. The owner could remove the word luxurious our of the name. The rooms are definately, huge but have no bar or air conditionning (despite the giant patio door, it's a bit akward to leave it...

It was a very short stay (one night) but we had everything we needed. Hospitality was excellent. Bed was very comfortable and was glad for the pool to cool off on the extremely hot Friday afternoon. Breakfast was perfect for both us - fresh fruit, cold meats, cereals. Lovely stay all round.

This is a beautiful guesthouse with stunning views. The rooms were well presented and the hosts were very friendly and attentive. Two small criticisms were the lack of fridge in the room and the pillows were very hard. It is very clear that the owners have take on board previous feedback from guests and made improvements. Overall I would recommend...

Hi Madelein & Nico, Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback, this is much appreciated.

For this location you need a car. Very quiet location, we liked it a lot! Johann and Dorie are very friendly and make you really feel 'at home' and welcome. We travelled as a family with older children (teenagers/young adults) and this guesthouse was a good choice. The children had their own suite which was spacious enough for all of...

Beautiful place. Location is perfect and the view is awesome. Enjoyed every moment of our stay and the staff we must admit is the best we have seen in a very long time. Before we even ask they have seen the need. Made our stay worth it!

We had an amazing weekend started with a nice welcome by Dory and Johann. Very kind people who makes you feel welcome at all times. The lodge is located on a hill, next to a lake with an extraordinary view. Great rooms and the best bed ever. Love this lodge, and will come back 100% sure

The Manor has spectacular views is a perfect location to relax - or to get up and explore the countless things to do close by. The super hosts Dorie and Johann want to make your stay very special. The rooms are basic, comfortable and very clean. But the best spot is the lounge anyways. Relax and Enjoy!
