“Stay for Longer!!”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

Like everyone else, it seems, we wish we had booked for more than two nights. Beautiful well-furnished rooms with every possible comfort and a delightful host for whom nothing was too much trouble. She has obviously put a lot of thought and love into Earthbound. There is also a lovely garden with a pool, a barbecue if you wish, and shade when you want it. We drove there from Calitzdorp (not anywhere near as nice as Oudtshoorn) through a fantastic mountain pass, only to exceed this tenfold the next day taking the Swartsberg pass to Prince Albert. We stopped so many times it took us three hours of breath-taking scenery. This was the first time we've been in the Karoo but we will certainly go again.

Room Tip: We had the garden room which was lovely, but our friends room upstairs was just as good with lovely...

Our best B&B in South Africa! Marie made us VERY welcome - and she had thought of everything. We now wish we were able to have stayed more than one night. In a league of her own! On top of all this - a swimming pool - welcome on a hot day, and excellent value for money.

This is such a lovely place to stay! Unfortunately we only had one night, We would have loved to stay longer. The room was wonderful and the picknick-breakfast on the terrace was fantastic. Perfect hosting! Secure parking in the owners gated garage. We will come back whenever we are in Oudtshoorn again.

A very comfortable stay in rooms that have had such attention to detail that one wants for nothing. And even if you did, it would soon be provided. This is the most comfortable stay in a BB that one could hope for.
