It's the most beautiful place I've ever stayed in... All the details show the love and passion Albert and Sue have for the Moon Shine and its process of construction and growth. Everything hand made with full dedication and respect for the nature! I and my girlfriend stayed two nights in "Fly me to the Moon" Cabin and we just...

We spent the weekend here for our anniversary and we were pleasantly surprised with everything at Moonshine On Whiskey Creek! The hosts were amazing, very helpful and kind. Bushpig is a lovely unit situated among the trees and right across from the pool. It was VERY neat and clean with everything we needed! We took the hike down to the...

We stayed in bush pig. Beautiful basic cabin on stilts in the trees completely in tune with nature. Rustic decor in a charming cabin. The cabin is very private standing by itself in the woods with an outdoor balcony. Somewhere to relax and be in tune with nature. Beautiful birdsong with the occasional sighting. Delightful walk to a waterfall -...

We stayed in Butterfly Cottage, which is perfect for those with young children. It has its own private garden with a gate, is near the community playground, and has a fire ring for campfires. It also has an indoor fireplace. There isn't much privacy within the sleeping area--only a curtain separates the two bedrooms. The kitchen was fully equipped and...

Excellent family getaway spot. We extended or trip two extra nights because of my family's reaction on arrival. Most eco-friendly guest house I have stayed at in South Africa. All water in the houses is captured rain water.

My wife and I spent 5 wonderful days in the garden cottage - very peaceful, very romantic, beautifully designed. A great base to explore the surrounding natural wonders, or just chill by the lovely pool and admire the glorious scenery. Sue and Albert were great hosts, and we will be back again!!

Thank you so, so much for your wonderful review. You can't imagine how important this kind of feedback is for us. Regarding the servicing of the units, we have considered increasing our staff, and thereby our rates, to accommodate this, but frankly there just has not been enough of a call for it. We have had the same staff for...
