We have had a great two nights at this lovely place! Nice rooms, comfortable beds and good breakfast. Only the bathroom is a bit small. Everyone working there is super friendly! We will be back next time :).

A warm welcome awaits you when you arrive at Earthbound. The suites are stylishly designed and cater for all ones needs. After a days drive it was bliss sitting outside in the tranquil setting of the garden. An absolute delight was the breakfast served in your own room in a basket. Am recommending this to friends who want to overnight in Oudtshorn

The B&B is beautifully furnished and there is careful attention to detail in the rooms and bathrooms. We were there in a heatwave and the airconditioner struggled to cope with cooling the room, as a consequence we had a less peaceful night's sleep than we had hoped for. The heat also made the beautifully appointed bathroom and coffee area outside the room quite uncomfortable. My son and husband were grateful for the swimming pool. A simple breakfast was beautifully presented on the patio next to the pool, pity about the oversweetened fruit juice though. In general though we felt this was a good place to stay, friendly service and convenient for our needs (a stopover before a visit to the Cango caves.)

We are very sorry that you had a difficult night's sleep during the heatwave that strucked our part of the country recently - but am also glad that your family could use the swimming pool to cool down!

We would be happy to see you again in the future.

We wish you and your family a prosperous 2014

Great little B&B. Would recommend asking for one of the rooms in the back of the building as they have a nice view of the garden and easy access to the pool. We stayed in the room next to the carport and although the room was nice I would have preferred the rooms in the back.

Hi,
Thank you for taking the time to do a review on Tripadvisor. Yes, I do agree your room does not have the pool and garden views, that being the reason that this room is my cheapest room, although it has all the same the other rooms have.

Hope you have a wonderful 2014!

Kind regards
Marie

I picked Earthbound BB based on the great reviews on Tripadvisor but I was pleasantly surprised that it even exceeded my expectations. I made a booking blunder and booked my 1 night stay the day before I actually arrived. Of course, I don't realize this until I show up and find out that I do not have a reservation. The hostess, Marie, tells me that this is the first night in a year that she didn't have any guests so she and her husband planned a free night off to themselves. Apparently they are 100% booked most days. However, she gladly accommodates us and not only that, puts us in what I imagine must be the deluxe room. I am very grateful for her graciousness to accommodate us and the fortunate timing.

The room is beautifully furnished to combine class with functionality. The pluses are the luxurious bathroom and in-room as well as private patio dining area. Breakfast was delicious and wonderfully presented in a basket delivered right to our room. Marie is the equivalent to Martha Stewart in the attention to detail she pays to decorating and presentation. This BB experience spoiled us. The BB that we splurged on in Cape Town did not even come close to this. I highly recommend the stay here.
