The pictures shown on his advertising are not of the drakensberg house and the views are not what you see but are pictures of the general area of the drakensberg. Very over grown garden and trees which blocks almost the entire berg view. Very chlostraphobic feel. Drakensberg sun is not 50m away but closer to 300m. We saw no wildlife despite going for a 20km hike. Very strong odour in the house. Very disappointing

There is more to the early departure than meets the eye : - the claim is completely inaccurate and the picture is 100% accurate taken from the hill of the main picture behind us on which wildebeest, zebra and impala roam free, with the cottage below the hill. It is not a ZOO (static animals)and was never claimed to be, you have to walk to see all wildlife which move as in any nature reserve. - we rented our cottage not the neighbouring resort on 100 acres and its fence is a walk across the road to use the pool and play facilities (clearly stated in documentation” at the hotels discretion”) 50m is a accurate to the resort fence, reception desk 300m yes but these are not city hotels they are on vast estate - 8 mins to the pool. We rent our cottage not the hotel. We stated 100 year old oaks. - At the time of the booking the lady failed to respond to numerous correspondence and numerous int. calls made to her to discuss her booking – no response and no questions ! - on the lady’s own volition she chose to walk out half way through her stay without any contact with Airbnb nor myself. It is likely the real reasons are personal and that I cannot answer. Whether her expectations were higher or different we would never have known due to the failure to communicate. - At an hour notice it is impossible to find a replacement booking nor logically to expect a refund. We have the supporting estate newsletter and pictures should anyone wish to validate the game and proximity to the resort. Reasons given: The reasons given are totally incorrect and more likely premature departure was likely caused due to other personal commitments. Whilst we were renting our cottage and not the hotel the lady chose not to walk over the road to use the resort facilities (50m) to the fence (8-10 min walk see pic).She was made aware that use of the hotel facilities did not form part of the contract, as previously stated in the enquiry “hotel discretion” The main picture on our website was taken on the hill directly behind the cottage and the fields in front of Cathkin Peak are where zebra, wildebeest and impala roam free(as stated in our correspondence ) if you don’t walk to see them that is your choice and if you do, animals don't hang around.(see Bergview Brief zebra release in November) This Unesco World heritage site extends over vast tracks of land and it is not a ZOO, it’s a unesco game reserve which we live on.(We never claimed otherwise) The hotel resort is on 100 acres of beautiful scenery found 50 m from our fence(8 min walk to the pool. Perhaps the expectation was mountain views through every windows but we described the privacy that prevail on a site of 100 year old oak trees. There are mountain views all around and on the front lawn despite trees. The latest issue of the “Bergview Brief” is available for me to email to you showing a new release of zebra, wildebeest onto the estate. These are outright inaccuracies(not a flat in a city) and the rationale of leaving half way through her stay lies elsewhere – we do not do refunds under any circumstances and in particular mid term and in 5 years we have never had a complaint such as this on 10 Int websites.

Spotless house. We spent 3 days here recovering from a family wedding in the Natal Midlands. Tony was very responsive to our requests. We were greeted by a pack of Baboons upon our arrival, and woken up every morning by a troop of Vervet Monkeys cavorting on the roof.

This is a perfect base for the Drakensberg - right in the middle of everything but beautifully quiet. The house is clean, comfy and cosy - everything we could have wished for and plenty of space. It's also very well equipped. We really fell in love with it and plan to return! A fabulous base for your time in the Drakensberg.

Hello Kate Thank you but I confirm that on the 18.11.15 the abnb reply system confirms that you were proactively provided with the combination numbers. The blanked out one was later. Self catering means exactly that, we did in fact originally provide that service but in that area the consumables would not last the morning and logistically from here in Ireland, is unworkable.

So many things about loving this listing! We loved the situation in the beautiful Champagne Valley - our favourite haunt - which is easily accessible from both Gauteng and (for us) Durban. We loved the house being within a very quiet and secure area overlooking the Drakensburg Sun Resort and surrounding mountains. We loved the way the house immediately felt like home. The 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with well appointed kitchen made it easy for us to stay with our daughter and her two young children. We didn't find it necessary to use the added bonus of a separate cottage with its own en suite. The grandkids (and the adults) loved the private and 'nooky' garden with all its wildlife - the birds and the antics of monkeys at play, although we were attentive to the caution to keep them from their inclination to enter the house! We loved the 'pot belly' fire place which would have made such cosiness in the winter. Sadly we didn't need this during our November stay, but enjoyed the use of fans! We enjoyed the homely touches of books and games and - to the dismay of the grandies - enjoyed our game of scrabble! We loved having unquestioned access to the facilities of the Drakensburg Sun resort - magnificent pools, both for adults and littlies (although despite hot days, the water was still a tad chilly for mums and dads!) and a magical kiddies playground. Sadly the canoes we used to hire in the past were not available due to the low water levels in the dam, but we noticed fishermen enjoying themselves. Our son-in-law loved the nearby facilities of mountain biking and, if not for being with young children, we would've loved the many walking and hiking trails. We loved the correspondence we had with Anthony both before and after our stay - their directions and access information was seamless and their replies to any questions promptly addressed. All in all a wonderful stay, although all too short! Thank you Anthony and Susanne

We had a wonderful weekend in Central Drakensberg. The house was easy to find, well equipped and had a wonderful atmosphere. We were also able to utilize the pool facilities at Drakensberg Sun, which for us as a family with kids was great. We would love to come back to this tranquil and relaxing place.
