A memorable stay!
We enjoyed very much our stay at the White House Lodge. Suzann and her husband are amazing hosts! The meals were delicious and with generous portions. The room was cozy and clean. With a view on the valley, you cannot beat the scenery, especially at sunrise!

Spacious and great views
Rooms were spacious and clean. Fantastic pool area with outdoor lounge with an African feel. As we were the only guests in this lodge we became spoilt by being able to use all facilities by ourselves such as enjoying the view over beautiful orchards of fruit trees from the hammock on the cliff. Great service. Entrance driveway needs improvements.
