"Spacious accommodation, but the 2nd bedroom is in fact part of the living room and kitchen, so not private. The apartment is also on the same property as the owner's house, so not completely private."

"Very misleading photos!"

Lizanne Gouws
"When we checked in , we were very disappointed to realise that this place was not at all as they interpret it to be on the photos ! 1. It has no river view - you need to walk around the main house to see the river2. It does not have a 2nd bedroom - the "2nd bedroom" as described in description is in fact part of the kitchenette, and you need to walk through that area to get to the rest of the flat. So people sleeping in "2nd bedroom" ddoes not have any privacy.3. No lounge as described in description. Only outside braai/seating area . Having a 2 month old baby , that would not have worked for us to sit outside the whole time.We ended up bot sleeping there , after paying the full aamount. Hopefully we can have a refund.Please update photos and descriptions as it is very misleading."
