This is a great place to overnight before a flight out of JNB. After 6 weeks in the bush and backpacking around SA,iincluding some other airbnb says, the accommodations here were a definite value. Thenji is a great conversationalist and a superb cook!

The host is very nice and accomodating. Due to flight delay we landed a lot later and her husband and driver were waiting. We get to the home and dinner was waiting for us. The rooms were really clean, the grounds very spacious, overall I enjoyed my stay.

Not at all what I expected. We were 5 travelers and were supposed to get two double rooms and a single. We were put in two rooms, one double, and the other with a triple bed! Three grown adult men were supposed to sleep in the same bed. Also no wifi

Hi Robin, Thank you for your feedback. From your comment/review it seems like there was an misunderstanding in our communication because you said "you were supposed to get 2 double rooms and a single" however prior to your arrival we had agreed that we were going to give you 2 rooms one with a queen size and 2 three quarter beds and you mentioned that would "work for us". In terms of the WIFI it currently not included in the amenities however it will be included from the month of June.
