A HOME FAR FROM HOME

 


 




Wonderful

A big thank you to all my guests and their reviews.

And a special thank you to my Staff - Ednah and Lindo for your fantastic work.




Elke, de / 2021-05-17 - 100%ige Weiterempfehlung! Die Gastgeberin Yasmine alleine würde den Besuch dieser Unterkunft schon rechtfertigen! Sie ist so herzlich, offen und zuvorkommend zu ihren Gästen, wie man es selten erlebt und engagiert sich außerdem über alle maßen für die dortige Zulu Gemeinde! Die Bungalows sind im landestypischen Stil erbaut und in einem schönen Garten verteilt. Man kann tolle Ausflüge in die interessante Umgebung machen und erhält tolle Tipps dafür. Ich hatte eine wunderbare Zeit und empfehle Jedem, nicht nur St. Lucia zu besuchen.


Judy, za / 2021-04-06 - Hostess / owner was exceptional. Could not get better. Yasmine is the best ever..


Mpumelelo, za / 2021-01-22 - Fantastic place. Fantastic room, fully equiped with all you need. Loved the pool. The location is fantastic. I liked that as soon as we arrived the room was available. The owner is so friendly and very chatty.


Radostina, bg / 2021-01-08 - Incredible experience in KwaZulu-Natal. This was one of the best places we’ve been to. Yasmine is an amazing host and person. Everyone was very friendly, the lodge itself is equipped with everything you need and the rooms are stylish and cosy! We loved the atmosphere and had a great time staying there. Would recommend it to anyone!


Naeem M., (SA) / 2020-09-27 - Our stay between 24 and 27 September 2020 was AWESOME. The accommodation itself was clean, tidy and really felt like home. All necessary amenities were available and we had a great time. There are many great reviews but what makes this even better is the host, Yasmine. That´s the benefit of having an owner managed holiday destination. She went out of her way to make our large group (10 pax) ... continued.


Philip, (BE) / 2020-01-12 - Jasmine, the owner of the property was incredible. Warm, welcoming and helpful. She helped organise a tour of lake Sibaya, made sure we had everything we needed during our stay. She was very personal and made you feel at home. The rooms were very charming and spacious and a well equipped communal kitchen. - It was only a bit further off from Sodwana bay than we thought it would be, but still close enough for a short drive by car.


Corinna, (ZA) / 2020-01-12 - Ruhige, familiäre Lodge zum Ausspannen - Sehr nette, ruhig gelegene Lodge, ideal für den kleinen Geldbeutel, um einen erholsamen Urlaub mit der ganzen Familie inklusive Haustier zu verbringen. Die geräumigen Zulu-Hütten sind einfach, aber mit allem ausgestattet, was man so braucht. Es gibt keinen Fernseher, den wir jedoch nicht vermissten. Schön waren der runde Pool und die Dusche unterm Sternenhimmel. In der großen Gemeinschaftsküche ist auch eine Waschmaschine vorhanden. Yasmine, die Besitzerin der Lodge, stand uns mit Rat und Tat immer zur Seite. 🙂


AURELIE, (ZA) / 2020-01-08 - Excellent séjour - Notre hôte Yasmine nous a très bien accueillie avec bonne humeur et professionnalisme. Nous retournerons chez elle sans hésiter.


Zorneding, (DE) / 2020-01-04 - Die beste Unterkunft in Südafrika - Die Besitzerin Jasmin ist einmalig und sehr freundlich. Sie liest jedem Gast den Wunsch von den Lippen ab. Die Mitarbeiterin Pumi war auch super nett. Die Unterkunft war ein Traum und der Abend, welcher von Jasmin organisiert wurde, war der Schönste unserer Reise. Niemand meckerte und es war einfach alles perfekt.


Glynis, (ZA) / 2020-01-01 - It is a great little holiday get away with lots of entertainment and family things to do I. The area. The cottages are very well equipped. Host is on hand 24/7 and always looking to accommodate you.


Pieter, (BE) / 2019-12-31 - home abroad - Great little Zulu village-like lodge on large terrain, big huts that are like full appartment. Nice people and dogs and local staff that go the extra mile for your comfort. Big communal kitchen and extra large huts with outdoor showers. Yasmin, the owner is a great care taker and has built a long term home there and you will also start feeling home there fast. Sandy area = no mosquitos I have seen. The dirt road is sandy but no probs for normal Corolla. There is a 2x2m sign on the main road , you need to turn at the signpost as it is that little private road that is the entrance to the lodge and the Zulu villagers around. Many languages are spoken there. (English, German, French, Zulu)
Sometimes power cuts happen in South Africa and this area ( <=> all accomodation in wide area) gets its share of the load shedding. (neighbouring countries are not able to catch falling S-Africa if they are having interruptions). mobile phones are down then too. Prepare for getting the whatsapp location tag beforehand from Jasmin in case you arrive after dark. (PS: When you have inserted a local sim card - with data only- you can add whatsapp contacts and call/ text in advance)


Kevin and Amelie, (DE) / 2019-12-21 - A home far away from home - Yasmine and her team gave us a very very warm welcome and I have to say that we never stayed at a place where someone did so much to make her guests happy. The bungalow we stayed in was very nice, clean and well designed. Also it was really cool to see that Yasmine cares about her neighbours and has a good relation with the local people which is worth a lot in terms of responsible tourism.


Luis Montejo, (ES) / 2019-10-16 - Like home - The people like Yasmine, makes you feel like her family, the world would be much better with people like her and her staff. Amazing place. Outstanding, magnificent, great, special...10!!!!! - Everything was perfect.


Tatj, (DE) / 2019-09-01 - Die Besitzerin ist sehr nett, hat uns traditionnelles Zuluessen gekocht und uns Tipps gegeben. Außerdem ist die Unterkunft sehr gemütlich. Mit einem Wasserprojekt hilft die Besitzerin der Zulu Gesellschaft. Schöner Schwimmenpool und große Küche.


Coline Rouaze, (FR) / 2019-08-08 - Un très beau lieu. Jasmine est adorable. Lock et Mpume également. Je recommande vivement ce lieu très paisible.


NE, (ZA) / 2019-08-04 - Our stay was beautiful with my family. The owner is very friendly and we had a nice time. She is very sensitive.


Hennie, (ZA) / 2019-06-24 - The personalised service from Yasmine and her staff was excellent. We had to leave early the next morning. Yasmine was prepared to make us breakfast at 06h00 which we declined. She made us a breakfast parcel that could feed a army. Even though it was after 18h00 she specially got the staff to make fire for us so we could enjoy it in the boma area.


Jan Van Driel, (ZA) / 2019-06-19 - Yasmine is an Angel. She makes you feel so welcome and we loved our stay and will be back for more


Maaike & Jeroen, (NL) / 2019-05-21 - Goed verblijf. De gastvrouw was een schat, gratis wasjes draaien, keuken voor openbaar gebruik, goed ontbijt (ontbrak aan niks) en hele rustige locatie. Pikdonker snachts. 2 schatten van honden.


Pascale G., (FR) / 2019-05-06 - Just a perfect place. Accueil chaleureux, très joli, très propre, you immediatly feel at home. We shared dinner with locals thanks to Yasmine who is a marvelous host!


Wolfgang , (DE) / 2019-04-30 - Sehr charmante Unterkunft mit super freundlicher Gastgeberin in toller Umgebung mitten um dem Lande. Die Chalets sind Zulu - Rundhütten nachempfunden und haben eine tolle Architektur, sie sind sehr geräumig und stilvoll eingerichtet. Man ist in the middle of nowhere, mitten auf dem Land, ein toller Sternenhimmel, absolute Ruhe und eine tolle Gastgerberin, unbedingt weiter zu empfehlen.


Rachella Lenten, (NL) / 2019-04-04 - Super fijne lode. Het was echt super mooi en praktisch in gericht, heel schoon en sfeervol. Yasmin de gastvrouw was heel vriendelijk en gastvrij. Wij hebben ons goed vermaakt.


Gautam, (SE) / 2019-03-27 - Fantastic hostess and very nice rooms! Being out in the farmlands, this place is a serene haven that we are so glad we found. The hospitality and generosity from Jasmine and her crew is out of the ordinary, making you feel right at home. The facilities are new and clean with everything you need, comfy beds and nice interior. It is a bit out of town from Sodwana, but really worth the visit!


Caitlin, (CN) / 2019-03-15 - Perfect place to relax close to Sodwana Bay, very good value for money!Unique modern African designed huts with plenty of space. The common area is clean and there is an area outside to make your own braai/BBQ. The owner, Yasmine, was very friendly and provided helpful travel tips. If you are traveling from Johannesburg, do not take the road through Jozini. Google maps showed the route to Jozini as a shortcut, however, it ended up taking twice as long as expected due to the poor condition of the roads.


Lise, (FR) / 2019-02-28 - J'ai adoré mon séjour chez Yasmine. L'endroit est magnifique et reposant, à 15km de la belle plage de Sodwana bay (les hébergements les plus proches sont à 6km et quand il faut prendre sa voiture, faire 15km ou 6 ne change pas grand chose). C'est confortable, bien équipé et beau. Yasmine est pleine d'attentions, elle m'a donné beaucoup d'informations pour bien visiter la région. Elle est conviviale et chaleureuse, son staff aussi. Ça a été ma "maison du bonheur en Afrique du Sud" et je suis restée 4 nuits au lieu de 4. Allez y et prenez votre temps... Ce lieu restera l'un de mes meilleurs souvenirs d'Afrique du Sud.


Natividad, (ES) / 2019-02-15 - Awesome place, incredible owner :) This place is truly AMAZING! :) The bungalows are really beautiful and comfortable, the swimming pool is a dream and the kitchen is very big and we'll equipped. And Yasmine is just great! Super nice, helpful and a great sense of humor. It is just a little paradise. You will love it! :)


Carina, (DE) / 2019-01-24 - Jasmin ist eine sehr nette und engagierte Inhaberin.


Julia, (DE) / 2019-01-19 - Sehr nette Gastgeberin sowie saubere Cottages! Eine sehr nette und neue Unterkunft, die derzeit noch mit dem nötigsten ausgestattet ist. Die Besitzerin kümmert sich sehr herzlich um das Wohl ihrer Gäste. Es ist ein wenig weit weg vom Strand, jedoch liegen die Cottages sehr einsam. Man hat alles was man braucht und ist sehr sauber gehalten.


Mikhalien, (ZA) / 2019-01-02 - Everything was clean, neat and comfortable. The communal kitchen is fully equipped. The lovely pool is an added bonus on a hot day.


Nicolas, (CA) / 2018-12-13 - Very quiet, beautiful place, the huts are large. The common area is super convenient with a large kitchen, dining room and deck. The owner has a foundation that helps bring water to people in need in the region. Place might be a bit difficult to find, needs a sign on the main road. Just call to get precise directions.


Olivier, (B) / 2018-08-15 - Great calm and remote location, the units are spacious and beautiful, Yasmine is very nice and helpful. The commons are well furnished. Ideally close to Sodwena beach. We really enjoyed it!
