Your Guests
Both parents and teenage children are well-spoken and educated(ex-teachers who are now business owners) and can provide stimulating intellectual conversations if desired. Excellent knowledge of local area, especially in the field of education, economics and tourism. We are originally from Durban, South Africa so very conversant in the Afrikaans language too. We emigrated from South Africa in 1998 and lived in New Zealand for 7 years before settling in Australia. Sports loving family and keen spectators of English soccer(die-hard Man United fans!), rugby, tennis and cricket. Have a table-tennis table at home and willing opponents!

We are well-travelled and enjoy meeting people from different cultures and countries. We totally understand the "intricacies" of travelling abroad and therefore go out of our way to ensure a pleasant and memorable stay.

    The accommodation was excellent, the location was good and our host was most friendly and helpful. Future travellers will need to check about renovations to be carried out before booking.

    Host and family was very nice and loved the local area, close to everything..... but we had a few problems with the basic facilities and only ended up staying 1out of 5 night payed for. Shower Broken and basin cracked/tap broken, chairs broken, a OFF smell in community fridge, BBQ not usable for basic. cooking/no electronic frypan. Not as kid friendly as may seem.

    My stay witj Vijay and Renay was absolutely tremendous. They were sooo helpful. My room was lovely - comfortable and a balcony where I could sit and enjoy my brekkie. I certainly recommend this accommodation with a caring atmosphere.
