The owners were very friendly and welcoming and could give us a lot of recommendations for the area. The apartment was very clean and spacious and the pool was great and refreshing.

We had a wonderful time at The Golden Barrel. Audrey provided us with all the information you need for Oudtshoorn. The room was very clean and the garden is just lovely. The location is very good and you can reach the city center within a couple of minutes walking. We hope to see you guys again! :-)
