Uiters aangename verblyf met baie aandag aan detail.

Michelle is 'n baie gawe gasvrou wat deurgaans uitstekend met ons gekommunikeer het. Die huis was silwerskoon en is uiters goed toegerus met alles wat nodig is - meer as wat mens gewoonlik in selfsorg-eenhede kry. Alle toerusting, geyser ens. het gewerk. Die swembad was silwerskoon en die boma 'n heerlike kuierplek om saans om die vuur te kuier. Michelle was selfs so gaaf om ons toe te laat om later as die uitkloktyd die huis te ontruim aangesien daar nie ander gaste direk na ons bespreek het nie. Die huis is baie goed geleë naby ander fasiliteite in die oord waarvan meeste gratis tot ons beskikking was. Baie dankie vir uiters aangename verblyf! Ons beveel Chill-'n-Biki met groot vrymoedigheid aan en beplan reeds aan 'n volgende kuier daar.

Pragtige huis met alles wat jy benodig, baie goeie kommunikasie en diens van die eienaar af.

Die huis is naby die winkel en swembad area, binne loopafstand. Die huis self het alles wat jy nodig het. Lekker skoon swembad, baie lekker gesellige braai area, lugverkoeling, 3 skoon en netjiese en-suite slaapkamers, ens. Ons was 7 mense, en het gemaklik gebly. Michelle het goed met ons gekommunikeer en het vinnig die een klein problem uitgesorteer vir ons. Baie diere het kom kuier, groot groepe vlakvarke met kleintjies, koedoes, njalas, impalas, ens. Die enigste ding om van bewus te wees is dat die huis nie heeltemal in die bos is nie, maar deel is van die Elephant Lodge kompleks. Maar die entertainment area (braai en swembad) kyk uit op die bos, en jy sien nie ander mense nie. Ons sien uit om weer daar te gaan bly. Dankie Michelle!

Hele familie ape ons kom groet met 'n klein babatjie wat aan ma vasklou. Alles wat mens nodig het in huis. Ons gaan beslis weer terug!

Highly recommended accommodation at Mabalingwe.

Thank you for the opportunity we had to stay at Chill-'n-Biki Lodge. The accommodation was perfect for five adults and three children. Everything we needed was supplied, the bedrooms are spacious and the en-suite bathrooms a winner. We had daily visits by the warthogs, aardvark, kudus and nyalas, to the delight of all. The early-morning game drive booked through Mabalingwe's game rangers was fantastic with many animal sightings. Chill-'n-Biki Lodge will be added to my family's favourite list. Thank you once again for a restful stay!

Chill-'n-Biki Lodge Mabalingwe's response

Dear Marti,

Thank you for the very nice review! It was very nice having you and your family at Chill-'n-Biki.

We are glad you enjoyed your stay and all the animals who visited you at the house. It is so good to hear you had a restful holiday.

You are always welcome to visit us again. We really hope we see you again soon.

Kind regards,
Michelle

Bushveld tranquillity!

We had a great time here from the moment we arrived until we unfortunately had to pack up! The animals and bird life were exceptional! We were surprised by buffalo at the bottom of the camp, walked closely by the cottage. Will definitely visit again. Michelle was always available for any help or questions.

Bosveld-rustigheid!

Ons het vreeslik lekker gekuier van die oomblik wat ons daar aangekom het tot ons ongelukkig moes oppak! Die diere en voëllewe was uitsonderlik! Ons was verras deur buffels aan die onderkant van die kamp wat amper teenaan die huisie verby beweeg het. Sal beslis weer kom kuier. Michelle was altyd beskikbaar vir enige hulp en vrae.

The place is very beautiful and clean.

The owners of the house go out of their way to make sure that everything in the place is ready and neat. I could contact the lady at any time if I had a question or was uncertain and she helped. The house is very nice, large rooms each with its own bathroom. It's clean and neat. The animals come to visit every day at the house. We really enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who wants to get out of town.

Die plekkie is regtig mooi en skoon.

Die eienaars van die huis gaan uit hulle pad om seker te maak als is reg en netjies en in plek. Ek kon die dame enige tyd kontak as ek 'n vraag gehad het of onseker was en sy het gehelp. Die huis is baie lekker, groot kamers met elkeen sy eie badkamer. Dis skoon en netjies. Die diere kom kuier elke dag by die huis. Ons het dit baie geniet en sal dit aan bevel vir enige iemand wat wil wegkom uit die dorp.

Beautiful place, but needs check up maintenance.

Need to check the globes more often if it still works. The lapa has no lights. The upstairs room has one globe working. TV was working the next day, but not when we arrived. They need to have at least tea or coffee even though it's self-catering.

Chill-'n-Biki Lodge Mabalingwe's response

Hallo Thulie,

I am so sorry for the globes that were out if you had phoned me it could have been fixed immediately.
We have great maintenance grew that also go out after hours.
The Lapa does have lights, perhaps you only missed the switch against the house wall.

Well located and superbly comfortable for a big family or a few couples.

Very comfortable and tastefully decorated accommodation with everything you could possibly need to enjoy your vacation in Mabalingwe. The braai-lapa is pure joy to use and we had a great time around the camp fire at night. The frequent visits from some of the neighbourhood animals provide additional entertainment. The house is located within 3 minute walking distance from the entertainment complex with free putt-putt, tennis, squash, outdoor chess, kids play area and BBQ facilities. The well stocked shop and coffee shop are also there and another 112 rock steps will take you up the steep hill-side to the heated pool at main reception. That will also give you that kilo-joule burn so that you enjoy your next meal even more at the fantastic restaurant next to the reception area. Michelle and Hennie are awesome hosts and were very helpful when we had questions.

Heelik, rustig, asemrowend.

Ons het ons wegbreeknaweek terdeë geniet! Die kinders het heerlik en veilig met hulle fietse gery en die diere wat elke nou en dan verby geloop het, het vir groot opgewondenheid gesorg. Die chalet was goed toegerus en baie netjies en ons het niks kortgekom nie. Michelle was ook net 'n oproep weg as daar iets gekort het. Sal definitief weer besoek.

Wat 'n heerlike naweek weg by Chill-'n-Biki lodge Mabalingwe. Die eenheid is pragtig, alles was netjies en skoon gewees, elke kamer sy eie badkamer met die swembad en kinderspeelarea loopafstand. Die vlakvarke en bosvarke het ons elke dag kom groet. Michelle was baie vriendelik gewees en was gereed om ons te verwelkom! Ek sal dit vir seker aanbeveel vir 'n lekker rus en gesinsnaweek saam vriende en familie. Ons sien uit na ons volgende kuier!

Relaxing and comfortable.

Lounge 2 seater needs replacing. Lounge/open plan kitchen requires serious cooling. Cleaning in general could be improved upon.

Chill-'n-Biki Lodge Mabalingwe's response

Dear Anna,

I am glad you had a relaxing time at Chill-'n-Biki. I apologize for the things you complained about but we sorted it all out.

The 2 seater has been replaced. It was actually just the foam that was a bit soft, but we replaced it.

We are putting in an air-conditioning next week so all our upcoming guests will have a cool summer holiday in the bush.

About the cleanliness of the house, I can only say that no one else has ever complained about that. The Mabalingwe cleaning service does a great job, but I will, however, speak to them about your complaint. It is always good to keep them on their toes.

Our guests are very important to us - we will do anything to keep them happy.

Michelle, the owner, made us feel at home. She kept contact to make sure everything was in order. You just chill on the patio and the animals come right up to the patio, great place for birders too. All the rooms were spacious and the boma is a nice place to socialize around the fire in the evening. Will definitely be back. We enjoyed it so much and the service was excellent.

Jy sit op die stoep en die diere kom tot op jou voorstoep, ook die regte plek vir voëlliefhebbers. Alle vertrekke ruim en lekker kuier plek by boma met 'n heerlike vuurtjie in die aand.

Perfect bush break away weekend!

We spent 4 days at Chill-'n-Biki lodge with my 2 small children under 2, and our parents. On arrival we were greeted by the welcoming committee and the warthogs soon become regular visitors. The unit accommodated 6 grownups very comfortably and was equipped with everything we needed. The lodge was walking distance from the swimming pool, kids play area and shop. We had a fantastic family bush weekend, and will definitely return! Thank you Michelle for making sure everything was perfect for our stay at Chill-'n-Biki lodge.

Lovely and peaceful.

Enjoyed the stay. Very quiet and peaceful, only the monkeys were a bit annoying. Would suggest a gauze in front of the windows that can open! They jump over your head into the house to steal the fruit while we sit inside. Couldn't leave any door or window open. Yet still value for money!

Baie lekker stil en rustig.

Baie lekker gebly. Doodstil en rustig, net apies wat bietjie lastig is. Sal dalk 'n voorstel maak vir sif voor oopmaak-vensters! Hulle spring bo-oor jou kop in die huis in om vrugte te steel, terwyl ons binne sit. Kan geen venster of deur ooplos nie. Maar uitstekende waarde vir geld!

Lovely in the bushveld and animals came to visit us. Nice getaway close to Pretoria and Johannesburg.

Heerlik, sal bietjie meer verskeidenheid van bakke en potte wil hê

Heerlik in die bosveld en baie diere wat jou sommer by die huis kom besoek. Lekker wegbreek naby Pretoria en Johannesburg.

Beste Nellie.
Baie dankie vir die terugvoer. Ons is bly julle het julle kuier by Chill-'n-Biki geniet. Ja die diere is baie mak om die huis. Al ons gaste geniet hulle baie. Ek sal uitvind watter potte en bakke julle gekort het en dit aankoop. Hoop ons sien julle gou weer.
Vriendelike groete

Beste Hester.
Baie dankie vir die terugvoer. Ek is baie bly julle het dit geniet. Jammer julle het min wild gesien. Na al die reën is die veld ruig. Hoop ons sien julle gou weer.
Vriendelike groete.

Peaceful weekend in the bushveld.

The house is spacious and very comfortable. Very neat, clean and tasteful. We really enjoyed the weekend. Didn't see a lot of animals.

Rustige naweek in die bosveld.

Die huis is ruim en baie gerieflik. Baie netjies skoon en smaakvol. Ons het die naweek regtig baie geniet. Nie veel diere gesien nie.

This is a lovely, conveniently equipped getaway place close to nature.

This is a beautiful and convenient place. Away from the hustle and bustle but not totally isolated from civilisation. We really enjoyed the animals and nature. Will recommend it to anyone.

Dit is 'n lieflike, gerieflike ingerigte wegbreekplek naby die natuur.

Dis 'n baie mooi en gerieflike plek. Dis weg van die stad af, maar tog nie totaal en al afgesonder van die beskawing af nie. Ons het die diere en die natuur vreeslik geniet. Sal dit vir enige iemand aanbeveel.

Nice place, but not what I thought it was going to be.

Firstly the good. The place is clean and the rooms are as per the pictures. The not so good. The pictures on the web at the time we booked showed a deck that overlooked water. This sounded great as you could relax on the deck while waiting to see if any animals came to drink. The problem is that these photos are from the restaurant nearby and not part of the accommodation. There is no view from the accommodation and not much place to relax when you were not on a game drive. One night it started to rain and we were woken by water dripping onto our bed. The website indicates TV's in every room. There are in some rooms but these don't work.

Chill-'n-Biki Lodge Mabalingwe's response

Thank you for your feedback. We strive to keep our guests satisfied and therefore we take note of your review. We are sorry to hear that you confused the restaurant photo's with Chill-'n-Biki lodge. To prevent this from happening again we immediately removed the restaurant photo's from the website. Our guests like to relax in the private boma where the warthog, squirrels, monkeys, baboons and impala come visit nearly every day. We apalogise for the roof leakage, we were not aware of it but it has been fixed. Kind regards, Michelle

It was a wonderful experience, friendly service from the owner completed everything perfectly.

Chill-'n-Biki lodge is amazing, close to the important places in Mabalingwe, but far enough so you have enough privacy. Perfect mix of modern and retro, very neat and pretty on the inside, but there is a bushveld vibe in the house. Warthog visit daily, monkies steal the sugar if you don't seal it properly, and an awesome boma area where you can chat away the hours and experience the bush. Was a pleasure to meat Michelle the owner. Her friendly service and attention summed up the experience perfectly.

Dit was 'n wonderlike ervaring, met die vriendelike diens van die eienaar wat werklik alles net perfek afgesluit het.

Chill-'n-Biki lodge is 'n amazing woonplek, wat naby al die belangrike plekke in Mabalingwe geleë is, maar ver genoeg dat mens genoeg privaatheid het. Dit is 'n perfekte mengsel van modern en primitief, met die huis wat binne baie netjies en mooi is, maar net so is daar 'n bosveldgees wat oor die huis heers, met vlakvarke wat daagliks kom kuier, ape wat suiker kom steel as jy nie alles mooi toemaak nie, en 'n awesome boma-area waar vriende gesellig kan kuier en werklik die bosveld beleef. Dit was 'n plesier om met die eienaar Michelle te doen te kry, en haar moeite en vriendelike diens het werklik die tyd hier perfek opgesom.
