    Xenophobic Owner. Callous expulsion.
    I've been traveling the globe for most of my life and this was the first time I'd encountered such intolerance for brown skin. I checked in at dusk and noticed the disdain by the owner, but dismissed it thinking that perhaps it was my imagination. Left my bags in the downstairs livingroom of the 2-story suite that I'd booked with them, and headed, famished to a nearby 5-star restaurant for dinner. I returned from my meal, a bit shaken. The streets were deserted and gangsters were driving up to my Audi to survey me and my car's contents, and I suddenly knew why the restaurant and guesthouse premises were all securely locked behind tall gates and was nervous about making it back to the guesthouse safely. Once back inside my suite, I called the owner to ask if he could send someone to help me find the light switch, he made several xenophobic remarks like "This is why I don't rent to people from the third world" and he refused to assist me. Then, he asked me to leave. I informed him that I'd already booked the hotel for a second night and had nowhere else to stay, he replied "No. You're not staying here. You're leaving." I had to find another hotel late at night & find my way back through those deserted streets where gun shots plainly rang out. I've traveled the world and never ever experienced that kind of prejudice! I was shocked and shaken by it. Surprise, surprise.. I googled "southern cross symbol" and it turns out that it's a popular white-spremacist symbol.

    Thank you for hospitality and 1 night availability
    Wanted an overnight stay near a winery that was featuring a special paired dinner. (Did not want to drive too far). The Southern Cross was only a couple of miles away and was exactly what we wanted. We even arrived early so we could use their pool (cool) and shower before the dinner. Everything was great.
