We had a wonderful stay once again at Topsy Turvy. Ritje and Eric were fantastic hosts. The breakfasts are delicious, fresh ripe fruit, Eric's Belgian salad, the bread and the cooked rooms are spacious and nicely appointed and very clean. Unfortunately they are stopping at the end of the season. Hope to see them when we visit next time.

Ritje and Eric were perfect hosts and very accommodating. They are so friendly and could not do enough for you. The guesthouse was in a stunning location overlooking beautiful scenery. The facilities are exceptional and all the added extras like the bubble baths etc were a wonderful touch. The room was a lovely size and the bathroom was very tranquil.... More

The owners Erik and Ritje make you really feel "at home" in their excellent bed & breakfast. Our room was spacious, clean and had all required functionalities. The view from the terras is spectacular and the location is perfect for trips in the area. Breakfast is a delight with every day self made jams and "specials". Lovely place! I would... More

The worm and nice owners were very helpful everytime we asked them for help. Nice and clean rooms at a beautyful house with a beautyful view. You could feel that all guests, when having breakfast, had a good stay. If you are searching for B & B we recommend this place. Iréne Söderlund

This is a truly delightful place to stay. The owners Erik and Ritje are very welcoming and really want you to enjoy staying at their house. The rooms are well appointed and because there are only 5 rooms in total, even when full, it does not feel crowded. There is a lovely pool area to take time to relax at... More

Topsy Turvy is really at the high end of 4 star accommodation in South Africa. It has a fantastic location with a stunning view of False... More
