The moment you enter
the guest house through the big double doors you are greeted by
an unexpected sight of an indoor waterfall and fishpond. As the
guests book in, fish inquisitively pop up for greetings. Immediately
you feel at home.
Even more so, if your hostess
shows you all the treasures to make you stay comfortable – the
cozy lounge with the big fire place where you can sample our local
wines, the verandah and the magical garden. The lounge leads onto
an exquisite long verandah with a reed ceiling. Sipping you first
cup of coffee on the verandah, you have a view over the lush garden
with a black swimming pool and the Orange River valley where the
fish eagles circle the skies.
