Great location, quiet and clean cottage in a tranquil environment. Hosts were very friendly and helpful. I stayed with my daughter and we arrived at night and found that our hosts had bought some food for us to eat before we could get to the shops. We are truly thakful fot their kindness. We both enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again. Much thanks to the hosts!

The house was great. It has everything you need to make yourself feel at home. Ron and Rena made sure I had everything I needed during my stay. There are shops just at the bottom of the road if you want to self-cater but there are also nearby restaurants. Their pool and gardens are also lovely. I stayed as a business traveler but this place would also be great on holiday.

Wonderful stay in a very roomy garden cottage with all the necessary amenities. Great welcome and hosting by Ron and Rena (thanks for the chat about life in Zimbabwe and the beer).

I enjoyed staying with Rena (her husband was in South Africa). She was a wonderful and caring host. The cottage is comfortable and has everything one needs and is very private. The area is very nice and close to an upmarket shopping center with good restaurants and supermarkets. All together I can only recommend this place with this friendly and relaxed atmosphere. My best regards, Paula

Thank you Ron and Rena. Your Hospitality was the best ever. You made me feel like I was home again, the days when everything was done for me , the cleaning and the washing, I can certainly get used to that. I will stay no place else but your place on my future visits. 100% Approval and I would recommend your place to everyone visiting Harare.
