We were absolutely thrilled to have been nominated as a finalist in the South African Tourism - 2010 Welcome Awards. Even though we did not end up winning the award it was to us an honour to be chosen as runners up in the lodge category countrywide. Make no mistake we came up against some stiff competition – particularly when one takes into consideration that we are actually classified as a Guesthouse by the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa.

The Awards ceremony, held at the Indaba Travel Trade Exhibition in Durban, was a glamorous affair attended by a number of local and overseas dignitaries. We guess there must have been somewhere in the region of 500 people at the ceremony.

It really was an awesome feeling being part of the occasion and something that we are going totreasure for the rest of our lives.

Of course it would be remiss of us if we did not make mention of the fact that we would never have got this far without the tremendous support from our staff - in particular our Manager Jaco Jacobs. Jaco has been with us now for going on 2 years and is doing a wonderful job providing the added on value service that makes us the ‘cream of the crop’ according to South African Tourism..


In July 2010 we were privileged to host the Ulysses Johannesburg North Biking Club. What a wonderful group of people. Their Bike Convenor, Andrew Sternslow, for some unknown reason, refers to the group as a ‘bunch of ‘old farts’. Well for a bunch of old farts they certainly know how to party – in a civilised manner. Thank you for your company – Andrew, Shirley, Mike, Lynette, Digby, Jennifer, Roy, Barbara, Mac, Gavin, Leon, Andrea, Nick & Maryanne. We hope to see you all again soon.


Our aim, going forward, is to continually find new and better ways to enhance our service delivery to our guests.

With this in mind we are open to any suggestions as to what we could do to make your stay with us more pleasurable.

Terry, Cheryl & Jaco


Enjoy the attention and service you will receive from your hosts Terry & Cheryl, Jaco & Sue.
