“Excellent location to stay in Oudtshoorn!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

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.

The B&B is really amazing. What a nice and warm welcome at our arrival. The rooms are really beautiful and there has been thought of every small detail. That's what it makes really amazing. We even have booked a second night, because we enjoyed the quietness and relaxing by the pool. Great tips to eat and visiting the ostriches. Breakfast was very good!

Room Tip: don't hesitate, just book this b&b!!!

We stayed in Earthbound B&B for one night on our trip from Karoo NP to Route 62. The B&B is situated little bit out of town (20 minute walk). Reception by the owner was great (very gentle people ánd personnel), room has everything you need (TV, wifi, welcome drink, information about surroundings, etc.) and is quite cheap (we paid about 35 euro for 1 night, including breafast, which was great!). The B&B has a beautiful pool and garden.

Activities:
- Definitely drive along the Swartberg Pass! Views are stunning, if you want to hike, get yourself a permit in Oudtshoorn
- Visit the nearby waterfall. Unfortunately, we arrived after closing time, but we saw some enormous tortoises!!

Room Tip: We had room 1, which has a private terrace.

After our third visit we still would like to say it is one of the best and also this year we did not regret coming back.
The owner and the staff always are trying to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
