Amazing hosts and comfortable accomodation. They went so far out of their way to assist us with some unfortunate car trouble we experienced. This is truly South African hospitality. Awesome braii area in which the hosts even brought us wood and joined us for a chat. Thank you Vivian and Coco. We truly thank you for a heart warming stay!
