Hemel op Aarde!

Jimmy het die ekstra myl gestap. Hy het vir ons 'n gratis ekstra bed gegee vir ons 4 jarige dogtertjie, asook 'n gratis ontbyt. Baie vriendelike ontvangs. Mens voel sommer dadelik tuis! Jimmy het vir ons roetes verduidelik op sy kaart vir voëlkyk. Baie netjies en rustig in 'n pragtige omgewing. Die ontbyt was heerlik. Baie dankie. Ek sal die gastehuis vir enige persoon aanbeveel!

Heaven on Earth!

Jimmy went the extra mile. He gave us a free extra bed for our 4 year old daughter, as well as a free breakfast. Very friendly reception. You feel right at home! Jimmy explained to us routes on his map for bird watching. Very neat and peaceful in a beautiful environment. The breakfast was delicious. Thank you very much. I would recommend the guest house to anyone!

Baie aangenaam en ontspanne.

Jimmy het my baie inligting gegee om Seekoeivlei Natuur Reservaat. Telefoonnommers verskaf. Dit het ons besoek baie spesiaal gemaak. Ek kan Mahem B&B aanbeveel en sal dit beslis in die toekoms weer gebruik.

Wonderlike ervaring. Alles loop altyd reg!

Van die positiewe ervaring gedurende bespreking tot die vriendelike ontvangs by aankoms, tot die verblyf en gemaklike bed. Alles beskikbaar wat nodig is, ens. Dit is waarskynlik die beste plek waar 'n mens kan bly in Memel, vanaf enkel persoon tot klein groepies. Wonderlik!

Wonderful experience. Everything always goes smoothly!

From the positive experience during booking to the friendly reception on arrival, to the accommodation and comfortable bed. Everything that is needed, etc. This is probably the best place to stay in Memel, from single person to small group. Great!

Fantasties.

Sjoe, hierdie plek het al ons verwagtinge oortref. Daar was absoluut niks wat nie 100% reg was nie. Ons is so vriendelik ontvang en het heerlik geëet en gekuier. Ons sal 'n rede moet soek om weer Memel toe te gaan om weer by Mahem Guest House oor te bly. Jimmy en Sylvia julle plek is fantasties.
