Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Excellent hospitality and lovely place - Kids njoyed it
The house was absolutely lovely, very clean and tidy. Full wifi installed and you are given the whole property on arrival for your privacy. Hosts are so lovely and they make sure that all your needs are met while in the property. I will definately recomend this property to anyone travelling to Bulawayo. Also, the location of the property is so nice and quiet, the garden if filled with fruit trees such as mango, lemons, bananas etc.

About the neighbourhood
The neighborhood The Promise is in the suburb of Ilanda in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. Bulawayo, also known as “The City of kings”, “Skies”, or “KoNtuthu ziyathunqa”- is the second largest city in Zimbabwe. Ilanda is a quiet community with beautiful wide, tree-lined street. It is conveniently located just far enough from city centre to allow for quiet and serenity, while still close enough to make possible a last-minute night on the town. A pedestrian-friendly community, a restaurant, coffee shop, grocery and department store are within walking distance.
Getting around
If you need assistance with transportation, we have reliable, friendly and informative drivers we work with named Geoffrey and Sindiso. They charges $25 from Joshua Mqabuko Nkomo International Airport, $3 from house to downtown. Guests pay them by cash directly. Please let us know if you require their services.
