Some of our Guests

We recently stayed at African Violet. It is the 4th time we have had the privilege of staying there. Each time we go back it is like going home. Jennifer and Rob have thought of all the comforts of home. The beds are very comfortable and the suites well equipped.


Beautifully appointed, everything you need, gorgeous views, excellent service and owners, clean and tidy. We stayed overnight for a wedding nearby and the owners were very accommodating since we could only stay one night before heading back to Australian. We wished we could stay longer as it was such a peaceful location.

Sandi Perth, Australia

It was my third stay at African Violet; and I would definitely go back. Jennifer and Rob are great hosts. The guest house is beautiful and quiet. The area is scenic. The rooms are spacious and clean. Requests and queries are attended to quickly. I enjoyed my stay!
