Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Fantastic stay Ron and Rena are superb hosts and the flat is fabulous

    December 2013
  • Ich fühlte mich bei Ron & Rena sehr wohl. Sie waren sehr aufmerksame Gastgeber, die die Privatsphäre respektierten.
    Da ich kein eigenes Auto hatte, übernahm Ron für den Job des Taxifahrers. Das war nötig, da nur ein Restaurant und eine kleine Einkaufsmöglichkeit zu Fuss erreichbar waren und Harare sehr weitläufig ist.

  • I enjoyed my stay at Borrowdale Cottage: nice place, friendly hosts and good value for money. Hope to come back!

  • Ron and Rene are really wonderful hosts. They did everything to ensure our stay was pleasant. The cottage is beautiful, clean, safe and has separate access to the main house so you really feel privacy. Ron and Rene will even organise regular cleaning and washing, ironing of cloths for a small fee. Borrowdale is a beautiful suburb of Harare and much nicer than downtown. The best shopping area, night life and restaurant area is just down the road called Sam Levies. Certainly a great place to stay in Harare.
