I know it’s been a while after our honeymoon but I just wanted to say thank you very much for everything! We really enjoyed our the break after all the wedding stress. Breakfast was good and the place was clean. Brenton on sea was the perfect place for us – close enough to Knysna yet secluded enough to just enjoy our first few days as husband and wife; and the view! The picnic was lovely… so much food, we ate ourselves dik lol!
You are an absolute pleasure to deal with and the package left on our bed was so thoughtful.

Na 'n vreeslike lekker vakansie, is ek vandag weer by die werk en wil net graag vir jou 'n kort briefie stuur om dankie te sê.
Sjoe, dit was 'n VREESLIKE lekker week weg saam met my man gewees. Ons het so lekker gekuier, die verblyf was fantasties en die diens puik. Ons kon nie vir beter gevra het nie.
As daar een ding is wat ek sou oordoen as ek kon, sou dit wees om 'n nag korter in Knysna te bly en een nag langer by Misty Mountains. Misty Mountains se diens en die "overall experience" was net ongelooflik.
Baie dankie vir al julle moeite en ons bederf pakkie wat ons gekry het. Dit het ons baie spesiaal laat voel.
Ons sal julle definitief aan almal aanbeveel.
Smith Wittebrood April 2017
Namens my en Yolandi, baie baie dankie vir n onvergeetlike wittebrood. Jou reelings en akomedasie was regtig iets besonders. Jy het ons wittebrood spesiaal gemaak. Alles was net perfek. Elke klein detail was amazing.
Koenraad en Yolandi April 2017
Ons het dit so baie geniet, dit was amazing!!! Baie dankie vir julle goeie diens, die reelings wat julle getref het was flippen goed gedoen, die aktiwiteite was baie lekker en dit was net een lekker experience. Baie dankie vir julle moeite.

Bell Honeymoon March 2017
Baie baie dankie vir 'n ongelooflike wittebrood. Ons was so bederf en het ekstra spesiaal gevoel oral waar ons was. Ons het 'n nuwe liefde vir kos en wyn ontdek.
Jy het 'n groot stres van ons skouers afgehaal en ons sou dit self nie naastenby so goed kon reel nie.
Baie dankie vir al jou moeite. Dit word opreg waardeer.
Dit was amazing! Baie dankie
Riaan en Cecile Rossouw March 2017
I just wanted to send an email to thank you for arranging everything for us during our New Year honeymoon. (The Duncans)
Samantha and I had a fantastic time and thought the places we stayed at were excellent. We really appreciated not having to think too much about organizing the various activities also.
We are especially grateful because it was all booked so very late and you managed to get these places for us.
Duncan Honeymoon Dec 2016
As we have reached an end of our honeymoon vacation I just want to give a heartfelt thank you. You have put together an amazing package that has made our honeymoon so special. The memories will stay with us forever, you have surpassed our expectations. A few highlights below:-
Alkantmooi - very beautiful & secluded place. Very mordern finishes in our unit & beautiful mountain view. Great service at Zinzi restuarant, beautiful place as well. We took the menus as mementos since it had our names:)
Tonquani Lodge & Spa - OMW just when we thought you couldn't do more and you did:)...this was by far our very best accommodation. Everyone treated us like "royalty", we were spoilt rotten. Our room was the best...private pool - it was a first time I got into a pool as I'm always extremely shy in a shared pool, hubby says he's never seen me so free & happy:)...they served us breakfast in our room, carried our luggage & even ironed our clothes:)...I can't praise the place enough hey....we enjoyed the boat cruise as well...the two days flew by so fast:(
Moontide Guest Lodge - very nice and romantic place. Easy access from N2...walking distance to Salina's restuarant (best food ever)...also enjoyed chocolate tasting at Caroline's Chocolate Haven. We also had the best breakfast at the lodge:)
Thanks so much for putting this together for us, I can't thank you enough. You'll definately be hearing from us in the future if you have any couple's packages (annivessary vacation lol).
May God bless you and grow your business beyond your imagination.
Fundi & Thando - Dec 2016
Ek wil vir jou baie dankie se vir al die reelings vir ons honeymoon, al ons goed was so lekker beplan en was regtig 'n onvergeete tyd. Ek gaan verseker weer van jou gebruik maak indien ek weer 'n vakansie of so wil boek, ons het nerens probleme gehad nie. Dankie daarvoor LE ROUX WITTEBROOD DEC 2016
We truly had an amazing honeymoon and the companies you work with are so accommodating and of great quality.
We had a lovely stay at Misty Mountain (we didn't want to leave!) and Lazy Leopard was a great end to our honeymoon with the calmness of the woods surrounding the cabins. We even had a bunch of monkeys on our porch the day of our departure :)
Thank you very much for all the extra gifts that you have arranged for us to make our honeymoon feel extra special - the journal, itinerary and the things to do in our surrounding areas, the champagne, the chocolates and the ease of arranging a honeymoon through all the wedding arrangements, etc.
We have already told friends of ours who are engaged about you and your services and we will continue telling people about you.
Tiaan & Marié Hofmeyer - Dec 2016

Franco & Beaujelais Marais -Julie 2016
Good Day Ross-Lynne
There are a few things that I would like to comment about the service I have received for my Honeymoon (30 Apr – 9 May 2016) from Creative Honeymoon Solutions and the places I was accommodated in. This is serious and I would appreciate if you can take heed of the comments below. I honestly don’t know where to begin…..
- Firstly, as soon as I landed in George I travelled to my first place of accommodation which was the Brenton on Sea Chalets. Joanne welcomed us with so much warmth and kindness. As she checked us in, the chalet was amazing… the bed was layed with petals and the package you had was so well done that it had everything in there that we needed. The view from the chalet was breathtakingly beautiful. I had to admit to my wife that this all was Ross-Lynne I couldn’t take credit for it. We had the most amazing time during the four days we stayed at Brenton.
- The horse ride and spa treatment you arranged for me was also something that we really enjoyed.
- The next place we stayed in was the FLodge in Tsitsikamma. Deep in the forest but my wife really loved it. The service we received there was splendid. The view of the Gorge from the restaurant and our rooms was really beautiful.
- The last place we stayed was AM Estate in Plettenbergbay and I must say it was very smart and exceeded our expectations. We thoroughly enjoyed all the activities you recommended in the package such as the Jubilee creek and Castles at Noetzie. The stormsriver mouth was just super.
We can’t thank you enough for the experience we just had and would definitely recommend your services to anyone and everyone we meet. Your timely response to my calls and emails is definitely commended and appreciated. Very Professional. Well Done.
Mr M Jogiat - May 2016
Ek weet dis nou al n tydjie later, maar dinge was so dol die afgelope tyd. Ek wil net die oomblik gebruik om vir jou baie dankie te sê vir al jou reelings en moeite om ons honeymoon so pragtig en perfek te gemaak het. Alles was van die begin tot die einde 100% gewees en ons het regtig oral spesiaal gevoel. Jy doen regtig n puik werk, alle voorspoed en net die beste vir jou vorentoe!
Jan Nieuwenhuizen - March 2016
Goeie More Ross
Ek hoop dit gaan nog goed.
Ek is vandag weer terug op kantoor na ‘n wonderlike Wittebrood.
Ek wil net namens myself en Annere baie dankie sê vir alles. Dit was ongelooflik mooi en lekker nie eers om te praat van hoe goed alles gereël was nie.
Ek en Annere was van kop to toon teverede met alles en elke plek. Dit was so goed gereël van akkomodasie tot die aktiwiteite almal was bewus van ons en dit het alles so glad soos seep verloop.
Die dokument sakkie en die sjampanje, wat vir ons gewag het in die kamer by die eerste plek, was net n veredere bevestiging dat Honemoon Solutions defnetief die beste keuse was vir die beplanning van die Wittebrood.
Baie dankie vir alles en vir die hulp tot n perfekte Wittebrood.
Dirk Fourie - Maart 2016
Dear Ross –Lynne

Groete Jan en Leonie van Zyl ;-) Maart 2016
A very big THANK YOU for the best honeymoon. We did not have to organise a thing and we had so much fun. The champagne and little extra's in the rooms just made it even more special. We were so happy and very very impressed with everything and we would not have been able to do it without you. Thank you so much.
Marius & Rosslyn Alberts- March 2016
Good Day Ross-Lynne
Apologies for only providing feedback now but it has been rather busy since we returned from Honeymoon.
Both my husband and i would like to thank you for the package and arrangements you sorted for our honeymoon. I don’t think that either of us could even begin to express our gratitude.
Everything happened with any hitches and the welcome pack as well as all the activities/ restaurants and lodges were more than we could have hoped for. Everyone treated us like king and queen and we never lacked for anything. Both owners of the guesthouses we stayed at spared no expense to make us feel welcome.
We have recommended both your company as well as the two places we stayed at to all our family and friends and should we want arrange a holiday again, we will not hesitate to use your services first.
Thank you again so much for making our honeymoon memorable.
Warren and Natasha Theunissen March 2016
I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you have done. The attention to detail and your recommendations were absolutely perfect. I love Brenton on the Rocks J so beautiful.
Dhiren really enjoyed himself and loved the box of chocolates that you left.
Thank you once again for making his birthday so special and worthwhile.
Surekha Hiramaneck- Feb 2016
Hope you are well?
I wanted to e-mail you sooner but the new year started on a high.

Thanks very much for all the effort!
Coenie Westraadt Dec 2015
Hi Ross, I meant to email you last month already but Jan went by so quickly!
Hope you are well and managed to get some time off to rest and that the year started off well for you :)
Just wanted to thank you for your assistance with booking and picking accommodation for my honeymoon.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Each place was very different from the rest, just wished there was air conditioning available for our last three nights at the log cabins, but everything was so beautiful and comfortable for us.
Thanks for helping with making it an extra special time for us :)
Wishing you all the best for 2016 and may your business be blessed and flourish with Lord's favour :)

I just didn’t get the opportunity to thank you for the wonderful service you had provided us with. It was absolutely the greatest honeymoon ever. One we’ll definitely cherish. On arrival we received the welcome package which I loved the little diary & pen. That is so cute & thoughtful of you. All the activities was enjoyed to the max. All the service providers you work with definitely rendered a wonderful service on your behalf. All the food was amazing, we had so much that we took the rest back to our room every time. I’ll definitely recommend you to everyone I know that will be tying the knot. Thank you for your wonderful, helpful and friendly service. A job well done. Keep up on the good work. Pleased pass our thanks to all.

Ons het al klaar gepraat en besluit om volgende jaar vir langer weer Wilderness toe te gaan. Wat ‘n asemrowende mooi plek! Ek kan sien hoekom julle so baie pryse al gewen het. Dankie vir al die detail en moeite! Pieter Vorster - Feb 2013
