We stayed at Absolute Leisure >Cottages before heading to the NumNum Trail. As a stop off point, this oasis is well situated and kitted out with everything you think you will need, PLUS MORE! The BaKoni Suite was well used and we gathered fresh herbs and peppers from Trina's beautiful gardens. Two nights were not enough to fully enjoy all that ALC has to offer. We will be back! Staff, Samson and the ladies were very friendly and discreet. Thanks for a great stay!

An enjoyable experience abd I would definitely stay here again. It was just a one night stop over that ticked all the boxes. A few points that could help round off things. A chair or stool in the bathroom to put clothes on, and a lock on the door would be nice touches. Trina and Samson could not have been more friendly or helpful.

Lovely food provided on request - lasagne and alad with yummy mulberry yoghurt dessert. Breakfast filling and tasty. Lovely accommodation.
