                We stayed for 3 nights as part of a self arranged tour of NE South Africa. Olga greeted us and arranged an estuary cruise on our second day along with some restaurant recommendations for evening meals. Facilities were very good and the breakfast most enjoyable. No hesitation to recommend to others.

                Nice location with beautiful large rooms”

                large rooms, excellent breakfast, location

                Our 3 nights holiday in St. Lucia were very nice, we loved the location and the different style of the guesthouse. The monkeys in the garden were also very cute. The recommended boat trip were perfectly in god idea. We were so close to the hippos like never before. Thanks for that great experience. Will come back!!

                Breakfast, accommodation

                Serene was one of the best places we have been in South Africa. Their breakfast was phenomenal and Hans and Olga know how to accommodate your every need without being too much in your face/space.

                Situé dans un quartier très calme , la maison surprend par son modernisme. La chambre que nous occupions était très spacieuse et très confortable avec une jolie vue sur le jardin. Une mention particulière pour le petit déjeuner copieux et raffiné servi sur une très belle terrasse.
