“We had a lovely stay at Masescha. The hosts were very welcoming and friendly. The accommodation was good and the setting was beautiful. We found brownies and a bottle of wine in the fridge, which was a nice surprise. We did a small hike of the Robberg peninsular, which was breath-taking and the Saturday market was also great and just up the road. Thanks for organising this for us.” Michelle & Tiaan, September 2018
