'Macadamia Lodge worked really well for us, we were able to put the family in both cottages, so everybody had some space and used both the back patio area and round the pool for some sun tanning. The Williamsons' were wonderfully helpful and patient with us whilst we changed the bed configuration to suit our needs.'
'We really enjoyed the Monzi location and the fabulous birds and animals all around the lodge. We saw two different types of Eagles and watched Duiker from our bed. Every time we went somewhere we saw wildlife.'
'We found the location of Macadamia Lodge was excellent, allowing us to easily get to the wetlands area around St Lucia and the game parks to the North, with excellent and empty beaches close by. It's worth taking the trip up to Sodwana Bay if you are in to diving, but we found the sea too rough and the water too deep for effective snorkeling'.

Macadamia Lodge was everything we expected and more. In fact we enjoyed it so much we are already making plans to return next year with family who will be visiting from overseas. As a senior couple the place was perfect, so relaxing with no pressure and clock watching - time stands still! But the lodge is also ideal for families as there is so much to do either on the property or within easy reach. Children can run free, the grounds are huge, absolutely safe and the sparkling swimming pool is securely fenced. The cottages are very spacious, always kept clean and everything is provided for self catering. We enjoyed the B & B option and the breakfasts were delicious and plentiful and always followed by leisurely, entertaining chats with our charming hosts. Thank you Lucy, Pat & Tim for your hospitality.

It was like staying with old friends that respects your privacy and space that understands that you are with holiday. They were very informative of what was happening in town and what the attractions were. The rooms were always very clean and are very spacious. The view of nature and the golf course allows you to wake up in your own little world. We will easily stay there again.

If you are looking for somewhere to relax and really get away from it all I can highly recommend Macadamia Lodge. Not only is this an ideal place to get away from it all but its ideally located to visit some of the areas major attractions. On the doorstep is Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Big 5 Game Reserve, the seaside town of St Lucia and its World Heritage Wetlands. There is whale watching and turtle viewing plus estuary tours. I was also lucky enough to tour the farm and see the macadamia trees plus a mass of other fruits that grow on the farm. Thank you Lucy & family so much for all your help. And not forgetting breakfast and probably the best bacon in KwaZulu Natal!

We spent 3 nights at the Macadamia Lodge over the Christmas period. Lucy and her family are the most hospitable hosts you could ask for. Thorough knowledge of the area and its various activities. The accommodation is perfect if you're looking to get away from the everyday city atmosphere. Lots of activities in close vicinity to the lodge, always something to do, especially if you have kids. Hippo & Croc cruise is a must, also the bird park next door to the lodge is spectacular. I hope to stay at the Macadamia lodge again in the near future.
