  • hi there we are 2 families that are interested in booking this. However does that mean shared kitchen will be available to other people outside our families- meaning do we have to share facilities with strangers?
    Hi, No, Hakuna Matata has the one kitchen and when you rent Hakuna Matata you are renting the whole house, so no need to share facilities.

The house has two toilets, the kitchen, dinning and lounge room is one large room (open plan) as not to exclude guests while other are cooking delicious food in the fully functioning kitchen. Outside there is a huge insulated undercover BBQ area with a table that will easily seat 12 -14 guests ( custom made by me) and a 6 burner BBQ for the budding chefs in all of us. Did i mention there is a fire ring outside for those cooler nights or just for the romantic evenings sitting around a fire watching the flames dance.
