The lounge has seating and DSTV. The double bedroom has ample hanging space and storage. The galley kitchen has a sink, gas hob, microwave, fridge, kettle and toaster. Hair dryer and iron are available on request. We do not put them in the studio as the back up power system cannot support them in times of power outages. Fresh salads and vegetables are grown in our kitchen garden.

Guest access
Guest may enjoy the garden and help themselves to whatever vegetables are ripe. However we have 4 dogs, a cat and chickens who also freely enjoy the garden

I am a retired company director who has lived in Africa off and on for over 40 years. I have visited over 50 countries worldwide a number of which were visited initially to play rugby. I still enjoy travelling but mainly to visit friends or to play golf. My favourite golfing destination is Thailand. Love the people, love the food. Nekoye is a Masters graduate in horticulture who loves gardening.
