Our room was beautifully furnished and decorated and very comfortable. The owners have clearly used their own wide travel experience and so there is outstanding attention to detail and also excellent local knowledge.

Phil and Linda are the best host and hostess you can wish. Phil helpt us with choosing the spots in the Sanparks and saved us a lot of money by getting the wildcart and the right B&Bs fot the rest of our trip. The rooms are very good and there is very much attention for the enviremont, like the garden.... More

TL;DR version = Pleasant accommodations. Good location. Great food. Fun owners. We were a rowdy group of five that continually put our accommodations and hosts to the test wherever we went in Africa. Phil and Linda did not disappoint. The rooms were nice - nothing extravagant, but clean and recently renovated with many noticeable nice touches. The breakfasts were some... More

My son and I came to Oudtshoorn for a gymnastics competition and we stayed here for 2 nights and it was wonderful. Phil was expecting us when we arrived and our room was ready.

My room was very well appointed, cosy and warm on a cold Karoo winter night. They even have electric blankets! Everything was immaculate and the breakfast was delicious. A... More
