Absolutely beautiful! Huge, comfortable, great location. Exquisite breakfast, spectacular bathroom, common areas so vast and tastefully decorated. More like staying at the home of a very wealthy friend who was away for vacation. Help yourself to wine, food, beers, etc. Great decks and beautiful garden.

This is better than a first class hotel. You get personal service from Jodie and Kim, as well as a huge room with sitting area, the most comfortable bed, balcony, and free drinks and nibbles. We had free access to the whole lodge, even when...More

Thank you Ann, for such a glowing review. Having such beautiful gardens, gorgeous walks from the property, and lovely guests makes our job easy. The guests privacy is very important to us, although, we're never far away if needed. We appreciate you taking the time...More
