8/10 Very good

Charming rustic accommodation for groups.
A rustic budget destination for the non-fussy traveller. Communal kitchen could do with some deep cleaning.

8/10 Very good

Don't stay on a South African long weekend
Quite a distance from town but only a few minutes from the beach and easy to walk along the beach to town. Lovely location. Other guests almost spoiled it with their noise.
