"Hideaway is small but perfect"
Stephen and Jackie were very welcoming and put a lot of effort into providing your every need, even washing your car for you in the morning. We were invited to join them for drinks before going out for the evening which was a nice touch. They are also proud of their locally sourced gourmet breakfast and with good reason.
Despite the fact this English couple only emigrated a couple of years ago, they have done a lot of research and are a fount of local knowledge. Beware, Stephen is a good organiser (ex-army) and asks for your next destination so he can draw up a scenic route for you.
It was a shame the weather was awful and we were only staying one night - we would definitely recommend this place." See all these reviews: 12n in Namibia; 9n in South Africa
