One special mention whilst we await news from Airbnb.
Unfortunately there is one review below that isn't great - we decided not to respond to it. Prior to the guest leaving this particular review we had already reported the him to Airbnb for extortion and other issues - despite leaving such a review he extended his stay and then tried not to pay at all for his extended stay. He actually threatened us with a bad review if we didn't let him off the payment. It was very upsetting for us especially as it was during the period of Nelson Mandela's death and funeral, and the country was in mourning, and there was a wonderful feeling of Ubuntu, so the contrast was even greater. Once every few years one unfortunately encounters such a guest., but luckily few and far between. Please check our other reviews under Remote Corner. There are lots of reviews on many booking sites you will see nothing but great reviews.
The Internet has now been improved with an additional line, however this is Africa and we do not have fibre optic cables capable of high speed, but it is perfect for normal emails and non video (website hidden).
