Excellent, friendly service and the host made us feel so welcome with the smallest of details. She gave us a honeymoon basket on the house and made the stay very special. Excellent value for money. Excellent breakfast and the host even made us pack muffins for the day. Very clean room and exceeded the pictures online. One can see she absolutely has a passion to make guests feel welcome.

Earthbound guest house is home away from home. We only stayed for 3 days but we already planned our next visit. Marie is very helpful and a great hostess. The staff is sweet and attentive creating a really relaxed atmosphere. We stayed in room 4 and besides being spotless is very private with a beautifully modern interior. Breakfast is a scrumptious feast served by the pool. Honestly we have no complaints at all only that we couldn't stay longer. I am utterly grateful for our little stay. Will definitely be our go to whenever we come to the karoo next.

We just stayed one night at Earthbound on our way home from a road trip, but would have liked to stay longer. The room was beautifully decorated and the bed was super comfy. We are vegetarian and the breakfast was fantastic. Our host Marie was very welcoming and helpful. We will happily stay there again. Thank you Marie for a wonderful stay at your very comfortable guest house!

A quiet, relaxing stop, and a comfortable, beautifully decorated room. We enjoyed our brief stay and connecting with our warm, friendly hostess Marie. We hope to be back in the near future. Next time we will extend our stay and take in some sights
