THE hidden gem !! We fell in Love with Eli, John & little Alicedale. We've never had a more lovely host than Eli and John. They spoiled us to no end. The Cottage is gorgeous and clean, it has everything you could ask for. We loved the Braai and the company of Eli&John and our li…

Our stay in Eli and John's house was wonderful in every aspect. The house is beautifully decorated, with a lot of style and sometimes humor. The apartment is spacious (with a gigantic and very comfortable double bed) and with matrasses for the children we had a comfortable stay. …

Eli and John are brilliant hosts who have a gorgeous home. We were welcomed and felt immediately at home. The listing is accurate, except the price listed isn't accurate. It said £13, but it's actually £25. Eli is trying hard to get Airbnb to correct their error. We felt …

Response from Eli:
Thank you both and also for giving heads up on the price issue. It really frustrates but will continue to work on it. Tis the only negative I find with Airbnb is that you can't speak to a HUMAN!!! Next time you visit, The African Violet Room will be yours with very comfy double bed. Could easily have moved you with pleasure. Another favour - any chance you might be able to put a word on TripAdvisor for us? Take care and really do hope we meet again.
