    This guesthouse was absolutely beautiful. The room was immaculate and very tastefully decorated. The estate was stunning, with beautiful gardens everywhere. The staff was warm and welcoming and breakfast was delicious. We highly recommend Gerald's Gift to anyone traveling in this region. It is a particularly convenient place to stay for people visiting Addo Elephant Park, as we did.

    Schöne Anlage und nah am Addo aber in die Jahre gekommen und etwas spießig ”

    Der Garten ist sehr schön und es gibt leckeres Frühstück im Garten. Die Zimmer sind im alten Stil aber der Teppichboden ist alt und nicht so hygienisch. Es gibt leider viele Mosquitos aber das ist wohl normal da es auf dem Land ist- Moskitospray mitnehmen! Jedes Zimmer hat einen Namen und dementsprechend einen festen Platz beim Frühstück, Abendessen und Parken. Bei unserer Ankunft war “unser” Parkplatz belegt, so dass wir unser Auto auf einem anderen geparkt haben. Daraufhin wurden unsere Scheibenwischer hochgeklappt..
