Juani, May 2022

Place was really great, really enjoyed our stay, great location, nicely setup very neat and tidy, unit has everything we needed for our stay, staff friendly, cleaners daily where great, did house and pool, no complaints there

Road to place is generally ok, can access it easily with 2x4 vehicle with diff lock and deflated tyres, 4x4 would be ideal but we did not have any hassle with normal 2x4 vehicle if you know what you doing

Kosi bay border very easy to cross, hassle free, does not take more than 10 min if you have the papers needed

There is a restaurant next door walking distance, did not even know about this until check out

Water pressure is very poor and unreliable, sometime no water sometimes ok, sometimes very low cant run bath etc., just depends I think what users there are, also again think a problem for other potentially

Thanks for help and booking, we will def visit again maybe September or December, will be in contact for you to assist again
