Disappointing because the property is beautiful, it is just badly managed.

1. No electricity in the upstairs room - host said that due to time of year (4 January) there were no electricians and couldn't fix it - children had to sleep in the lounge as they had no lights or fan upstairs. Also no lights in the downstairs bathroom for the entire stay. The electrical issue was never resolved during our entire stay. 2. Downstairs shower wasn't draining - informed the host, she never sent a plumber or did anything to fix it. 3. Fridge leaked water all over the kitchen floor. 4. No water pressure in the bathroom in the cottage. 5. Shower in the cottage leaks into the rest of the bathroom and the bedroom. 6. Toilet door in the cottage doesn't close. 7. Cushions on the couch were filthy. 8. Bed linen in the cottage had holes in it. 9. Unit was surface cleaned only, if you moved any furniture it was filthy underneath. Paid for a cleaning service and the lady only worked for 2 hours and left without emptying the dustbin. Cupboards are full of empty packets of cleaning materials and other rubbish. Dustbin area is cluttered and full of rubbish. 10. Only 6 forks in an 8-sleeper unit.

We are sorry that the electricity issues experienced took away from your stay and we couldn't resolve it in time. Your husband did say however he preferred to have an electrician on-site during your stay. We also provided you with a free game drive vehicle for the duration of your stay but it obviously still did not meet your expectations

Superb.

Everything was above the expectations and won't mind going back again. It is a home from home with nature and animals. Wish I stayed longer.

Paradys.

Fantastiese plek om die rustigheid van die bosveld te geniet en jou siel te verkwik. Ons gaste van Nieu-Seeland was ook baie beïndruk met die verblyf. Die plek is pragtig en baie gemaklik ingerig en het ons verwagtige oorterf. Ons sal dit definitief aanbeveel en sal graag weer daar bly.

Paradise.

Fantastic place to enjoy the tranquility of the woodland and refresh your soul. Our guests from New Zealand were also very impressed with the accommodation. The place is beautifully and very comfortably furnished and has our expected legacy. We would definitely recommend it and would love to stay there again.

Peace. Serenity. Zen. Nature at its best.

We all felt close to undisturbed nature and you can see the moving freely minding their own business while you are safe inside the house, the houses are designed in such a way that you feel safe and if anything should happen you are not trapped. Customer service was always a phone call away and on WhatsApp ready to assist. We will visit again to experience the other beautiful houses.

Beste rus ooit!

As jy plek soek om te rus, is dit die plek! Dis stil, mens weet nie van die ander lodges naby jou nie - die ligging is perfek en uitstekend uiteengesit. Dag twee het dit al soos ons eie plekkie gevoel, lafenis vir die siel! Daar is diere wat tot by die huis kom, ons het elke dag diere gesien en daar het selfs 'n trop buffels reg by die huis verby geloop. Die huis is skoon en netjies, beslis 'n plek waarheen ons weer sal gaan, 5 ster!

Best rest ever!

If you are looking for a place to rest, this is the place! It's quiet, you don't know about the other lodges near you - the location is perfect and excellently laid out. Day two it already felt like our own place, bliss for the soul! There are animals that come right up to the house, we saw animals every day and there was even a herd of buffalo walking right by the house. The house is clean and tidy, definitely a place we will go again, 5 star!

Mooi gedeelte van die bos om te besoek.

Baie mooi plek om te besoek met baie wild en asemrowende uitsig. Was net nie tevrede toe hulle half tien die oggend gekom het om linne van beddens af te haal nie en net buite voordeur gewag het om plekkie skoon te maak nie. Dink hulle kon dit by 11uur doen. Dit het gevoel asof ons aangejaag word. Jacuzzi is dan ook in Mabalingwe en nie by plekkie self nie.

Nice part of the forest to visit.

Very nice place to visit with lots of wildlife and breathtaking views. Just wasn't happy when they came at half past ten in the morning to take linen off the beds and just waited outside the front door to clean the place. Think they could do it at 11 o'clock. It felt like we were being rushed. Jacuzzi is then also in Mabalingwe and not at the place itself.

Die beste ervaring!

As jy 'n naweek in die bos wil hê wat luuks en aangenaam is vir 'n sakpas prys, boek Elandsfontein!
