Ontspan in die bos.

Ons het die plekkie verskriklik baie geniet - alles was daar wat ons nodig gehad het. Het die jacuzzi baie geniet. Die eienaars was verskriklik oulik en behulpsaam. Ons sal beslis weer van die plekkie gebruik maak.

Iets om te onthou.

Sal definitief Olifant aanbeveel, Lynica het uit haar pad uitgegaan om seker te maak ons is gelukkig. Lekker om sulke goeie diens te kry. En die huis met die Jacuzzi is 'n wenner. Sal weer daar gaan kuier.

Something to remember.

Would definitely recommend Olifant, Lynica went out of her way to make sure we were happy. Nice to get such good service. And the house with the Jacuzzi is a winner. Will visit there again.

So ontspannend. Rustig in die natuur sonder 'n TV. Elke oomblik geniet.

Olifant is 'n baie skoon en netjiese plek. Die lugversorging het baie gehelp met die warm dae. Lekker ontspan in die swembad. Wilde diere maak kort-kort 'n draai vir kossies. Die huis is netjiese en gerieflik. Ons het dit baie geniet. Kombuis kort net 'n paar Tupper-houers. Sal definitief weer gaan.

So relaxing. Quiet in nature without a TV. Enjoy every moment.

Olifant is a very clean and tidy place. The air conditioning helped a lot on the hot days. Relax in the pool. Wild animals make a stop every now and then for food. The house is neat and comfortable. We enjoyed it very much. Kitchen just needs a few Tupperware containers. Will definitely go again.

Gerieflike akkommodasie.

Die Olifanthuis was doeltreffend. Ons het ons kuier vreeslik geniet. Die bos het ons goed gedoen. Omdat daar net een badkamer en toilet is sal ek nie die plekkie vir meer as een gesin aanbeveel nie. Met aankoms was die kombuis se wasbak vol ou skottelgoedwater. Een klein vuilisdrom is nie genoeg nie. Gaste moet gesê word om swartsakke te bring, aangesien geen voorsien word nie. Ek moes die stort ook skoonmaak wat vol hare was. Die vloere was ook nie skoon nie. Ek sal voorstel om beter skoonmaakdienste aan te skaf. Die huis is goed toegerus met die nodige. Banke en beddens gemaklik. Baie dankie dat ons die plekkie ons tuiste kon maak.

Comfortable accommodation.

The Elephant House was efficient. We enjoyed our visit very much. The forest has done us good. Because there is only one bathroom and toilet I would not recommend the place for more than one family. Upon arrival, the kitchen sink was full of old dishwater. One small dustbin is not enough. Guests should be told to bring black bags as none are provided. I also had to clean the shower which was full of hair. The floors were not clean either. I would suggest purchasing better cleaning services. The house is well equipped with the necessary. Sofas and beds comfortable. Thank you very much for making the place our home.

Baie dankie vir die gebruik van julle huis. Net die volgende: Die een wasbak in die kombuis se prop werk nie en water hardloop in die kas. Julle sal moet kyk na daardie kas, groot waterskade. Die lig in die lapa het nie gewerk nie. Ek sal ook voorstel dat julle net bietjie sterker ligte in die kamer sit. Verder het ons baie lekker gebly en gerus.

Awesome.

Thank you very much for the use of your home. Just the following: The one sink in the kitchen plug does not work and water runs into the cupboard. You guys will have to look at that closet, major water damage. The light in the lapa did not work. I would also suggest that you put a little stronger lights in the room. Furthermore, we had a very nice stay and rested.

Baie aangename plekkie in die bos met al die nodige geriewe.

Wonderlike verblyf gehad met al die nodige geriewe tot ons beskikking. Alhoewel die plek nie groot en ruim is nie, maak die buitebraai en lapa op vir genoeg spasie en heerlike kuierplek. Net 'n voorstel: Pad-aanwysing vanaf die hoofpad na die huis se ingang, miskien net 'n bordjie aanbring in die hoofpad. Beligting in die slaapkamers moet net bietjie sterker gloeilampe gebruik.

Very pleasant place in the forest with all the necessary facilities.

We had a wonderful stay with all the necessary facilities at our disposal. Although the place is not big and spacious, the outdoor barbecue and lapa make up for enough space and a lovely place to hang out. Just a suggestion: Road sign from the main road to the house's entrance, maybe just put a sign in the main road. Lighting in the bedrooms should only use slightly stronger bulbs.

Dit was 'n baie lekker aand.

Alles was baie lekker, al wat 'n klein probleem was die beligting in die eenheid is baie donker sukkel as jy besig is in die kombuis met die beligting. Net nog iets wat ons opgetel het die stoofplate was baie olierig en in die boonste kamer onder die bed was 'n boek van vorige gaste.

It was a very nice evening.

Everything was very nice, all that was a small problem was the lighting in the unit is very dark struggle if you are busy in the kitchen with the lighting. Just another thing we picked up the stove plates were very oily and in the upstairs room under the bed was a book from previous guests.

Dit was aangenaam.

Die huis was redelik skoon. Geen televisie was 'n probleem veral aangesien dit heel naweek erg gereën het. Beddegoed was baie goed. Huis is baie kleiner as wat mens aanvanklik verwag, plus die ligging was nie heeltemal wat ons wou hê nie. Ons kon egter nie voor die tyd oordeel waar die huis is nie.

It was pleasant.

The house was quite clean. No television which was a problem since it rained the entire weekend. Bedding was very good. House is smaller than expected, plus the location wasn't quite what we wanted. However, we were unable to judge where the house was before the time.

Dear Santi,

Thank you for your feedback.

With regards to the size of the house, we believe that it being a double-volume, 6-sleeper unit, our pricing offers incredible value by comparison to a chalet for 2 in the Kruger Park for R1390.00 per night plus conservation fees and compared to other Marloth Park accommodation which is offered at R990.00 per night for 2 people with half the space.

We specifically advertise no TVs for 2 reasons: Our venue offers a bush break with nature and relaxation, therefore offering time away from normal life. The second reason is safety and security, as the properties are not occupied all the time, therefore, we aim to reduce security threats and increase leisure time.

Regards,
Olifant Marloth Park In The Bush
