cozy and calm with a lovely view
Marys Place was perfect for a few relaxation days after a long camping group safari! Super cozy and spacious, and Mary and Michael are so warm and welcoming. Restaurants are not close but there are loads of takeout options and you might prefer to eat dinner while watching the amazing sunset view from the patio anyway! Highly recommended! Thank you again for everything and Im sorry my review is late)

The hosts are an awesome couple and were very accommodating even before arriving, communication via sms, e-mails, calls, showed lots of professionalism and most of all, CARE! Will not even look elsewhere for a weekend out but Mary's.Thank you Mary and Michael - our anniversary was indeed memorable and will return for as long as we can. We arrived as guests and left as friends which is an amazing feeling itself. Big Marys Place from Siva and Nerissa Ganasen of Ballito.(ZA)
