Guest Reviews

Great place for a weekend away. The cabins are clean and well equipped, pet friendly (you can close your cabin gate to keep your pet inside) and come with a dedicated braai / bbq (with a roof in case it rains). Beautiful pool area and great grounds to have a walk around. Very quiet and private - no one disturbs you. Hosts were great, Lorraine’s communication was top class throughout and Yossi showed us around and made us feel very welcome on arrival. Would definitely book again.

I really enjoyed my stay at Woodland Gardens. The cabin is cozy and well equipped. I was nervous that we would be cold but that wasn’t a problem because the beds have electric blankets. There is a beautiful viewing deck which was a great spot to relax during sunset. I enjoyed my stay

The property is exactly like what you see on the pictures. This lodge offers all that you need for a countryside stay. We really enjoyed the braai and the fireplace. The lodge is serviced daily which is very convenient. The hosts were very welcoming and helpful, giving us lots of good information to make our stay enjoyable.

We had a lovely relaxing time and it’s what we needed coming from Jhb. We really enjoyed waking up to a beautiful view of the landscape and when we were up early enough, enjoyed watching the birds :) The place was super clean and the ladies and gents who looked after us were friendly and polite. Joe and Lorraine were great hosts. Thank you for a lovely stay :)

A relaxing little gem a stones throw from Johannesburg. Loved the accommodation (homey), the hosts, and especially the puppy dog that slept on the step and kept me company on my walks.

Thanks so much for making by birthday a relaxing experience - I wanted a little space away from everything and that is exactly what I got - thank you

Hornbill Cabin was cozy and perfect for a weekend away from the city. Their property is lush with plants and trees, with nothing but nature sounds surrounding you. The fireplace makes for a perfect winter getaway. The cabin was well equipped with kitchenware and appliances.

We really enjoyed our time in this cabin and the ability to bring our two little dogs with us. The dogs especially loved their walks on the property. If you want a nice quiet, secluded weekend away from the hustle and bustle, this is a great place to go
