The Best Weekend Experience
I had such a wonderful stay. Everything was very clean and the space was decorated beautifully. There was free room service daily and everything looked better than the pictures. From the kitchen to the bedroom, bathroom and outside views. Any appliances you could possibly need is provided like an iron, hairdryer, french press, etc. Many places are within working distance like Kowie River, Kelly's Beach, Kowie Museum and various places to eat out. My nieces joined us last minute on the trip and they were provided with extra beds to accommodate them at a small additional fee. They were given a bag of dollies along with their accessories to play and keep busy with all weekend. The owners stay on the property so all assistance is provided immediately with so much friendliness and kindness. My mom's birthday celebration was amazing all thanks to The Lookout Guest House. We couldn't stop admiring the beauty of everything inside and outside the property.
