Wonderful Weekend at Kalinya Gardens
After seven years of annual family getaways, Kalinya Gardens is right up there at the top of the list.
One of the things we look for is for all of us to be accommodated under one roof rather than needing to spread out across multiple cottages. The Homestead which holds a maximum of 18 was perfect for our group.
The property caters for people of all ages. The Homestead is beautifully appointed: decor and furnishings are elegant and tasteful; the beds are super comfortable, and so are the pillows. There are several lovely bathrooms, and some comfy sitting areas, and more TV's than I could count. I don't actually think we turned one on until late on the final evening. We were too busy enjoying each other's company. Mandy, the owner has thought of everything.
The grounds, the facilities, gardens, decks, outdoor tables and entertaining areas were just perfect.
This year, my husband was celebrating his 80th Birthday. Mandy put us in touch with caterers and providores - all of whom were exceptional. On the day of the celebration, Mandy was there help us with extra tables and chairs so we could set up in the winter sun on the sheltered verandah which runs all the way around the house.
What more can I say - "just gorgeous, in every possible way."
Wow, just every detail is spectacular
We were children at Christmas. At every moment the house would throw some new amazing detail at us and we’d get excited and. Report back. The whole family was incredibly comfortable which isn’t easy as we’ve a range of people who don’t like any fuss to the particular. But hanging out of the veranda was easy and comfortable. It is an extremely well designed “everything”. The kitchen is top notch and has more than you need. 5 people spoke of how amazing their shower was. Even the tP brands gave us a chuckle. With obsessions about chicken breeds etc in our family this just made another Christmas moment for us all. But the main thing was - we have young kids. They always add to the “fun” in finding suitable places. The ducks, and tennis and phenomenal number of outdoor and indoor toys for all ages had them more applied than ever. But there were smaller details I loved. Plastic wares. The pool was great for our non swimmers with an awesome and pool length step. The jacuzzi helped warm up between. The bbq- we is included in the group conversation without kids being next to the hot plates. The rooms were separated enough so any night crying disturbed us alone.
Look. I can go on and on and I am internally longing to go back. I want to replicate the presses tin gloss walls in the bathrooms and many features that just were wow. Thanks Mandy for being an incredible host. We loved it and hope to return again next year on our trip.
