Situated on a working lemon farm, one travels through the lemon orchards to the farmhouse. Hosts, John and Heather made us feel most welcome from arrival and throughout our stay. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and, being on the garden side, we had a view of the beautiful rolling lawns and huge old trees. It is close enough to...

Beautiful place, comfy room, and great hosts to make you feel at home! It's a good location for visiting Kruger Park, and away from the bustle of the busy towns. Make sure to ask for the gate code before arriving.

This was a lovely place where we ended our holiday. The garden was beautiful and nowhere in South Africa we had such a good coffee (under the beautiful trees!). The cook was flexibel and adapted the menu to our vegetarian preferences. We felt very welcome here and Heather and John were warm and friendly. It was hard to leave this...

For working reasons I nearly spent 4 months in guest houses in and around Hazyview. I can honestly say that the Laughing Waters Guest House is my personal favourite. The location of this guest house is simply perfect: it is located closely to the Sabie river (you can observe hippos if you are lucky), surrounded by lemon plantages and in...

We had a wonderful long weekend stay at Laughing Waters. John and Heather were fantastic hosts and extremely accommodating. They went out of their way to ensure my family enjoyed the experience. Ayanda is also worth a special mention. She is an amazing cook.

Heather and John are two of the nicest people I've ever met. I stayed there for two weeks as I was doing a fieldtrip for my masterthesis and it felt like home.

My family from the US, Canada and India were here and they thoroughly enjoyed their stay. The main part of the stay was the lemon farm and the bridge over the Sabie river. Excellent service and stay. Will surely go back once again

I cannot say enough positive remarks about Laughing Waters Guesthouse. This experience was fantastic. After driving through a gorgeous lemon tree farm, the guesthouse sits in a calm and peaceful area of land surrounded by beautiful landscaping. The rooms & ensuite bathrooms are spacious and comfortable. The common areas offer plenty of room to be comfortable, whether one has work...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Laughing Waters Guest House in Hazyview is tucked away in the heart of the picturesque Sabie Valley on the banks of the Sabie River. Journey through the lemon trees to arrive in a beautiful sub-tropical garden, surrounded by tall trees and populated with an abundance of birds, Laughing Waters Guest House is a quiet haven, with a familiarity and comfort that makes you feel quite at home.On checking into Laughing Waters Guest House Hazyview, one will be settling into a retreat that boasts high archways, and a Tuscan ambience, a building that evokes an antiquated awe. Through the landscaped courtyard one will find their room with views of the beautiful surroundings. The location of Laughing Waters Guest House, close to the river, ensures slightly cooler temperatures within the valley; this comfortable micro climate makes Laughing Waters Guest House especially welcoming for a Lowveld destination in the hot summer months. The riverine forest and indigenous bush surrounding the farm, the proximity to Hazyview and the Kruger National Park and the occasional sighting of hippos makes Laughing Waters Guest House feel slightly "wild," but still very civilised! We have an in-house tour operator to assist with any tours / transfers you need planned. ... more   less
