Thank you to Pieter and Helen for a very warm and welcome stay. Living overseas and knowing there is a little oasis waiting to meet you is very rewarding. Thank you for excellent food and hospitality. It feels like I know you for years. Anlie Steyn

It doesn't get much better than this, honestly. The decor and layout, the beautiful trees (all lit up at night), the pool, the relaxed atmosphere, quaint courtyards, spacious rooms, and super friendly service, all combine to make for a wonderful stay. And, let me add...the restaurant offers a fairly extensive menu, and well presented, truly outstanding cuisine. No need to... More

Very impressed with my stay, could not find a fault on the two occasions I stayed at the Opikopi Guest House in February 2015. Service friendly and efficient. Recommend evening meal menu with a wide choice both of food and wine.

It is always wonderful to see my old clients coming back to the guest house. Hopefully that means that they were satisfied with our services on the previous times.
