Reviewed December 2, 2013

We really enjoyed our stay at Earthbound B&B.
Marie has been a wonderfull guesthostess. She has given us a lot of suggestions, was very helpfull with everything, nothing was to much to make our stay comfertable and the breakfast was every day a real joy. Very, very nice stay! We are going to recommand this B&B to our family and friends in the Netherlands. Hans and Ella Louwerse.

Very easy to find Earthbound after our long drive to Oudtshoorn, and we received a warm welcome from Marie. Beautifuly decorated room, lovely bathroom/shower and dinky separate kitchen area! Just a 2 night stay for us, and unfortunately we were so busy sightseeing we didn't get a dip in the pool!

We stayed one night in the Superior Room and regretted we had to leave. The room is so nicely decorated with an amazing eye for details. The breakfast was served on our own little terrace and was very stylishly served.

We had a/the garden room, and it was fantastic - a really good size with an outside area too. Furnishings were lovely, the room contains everything you might need, and the owner is super friendly and helpful. The guesthouse is in a nice quiet location, but an easy walk into town for restaurants and our host even offered to pick us up once we'd finished at our restaurant. Probably the best value for money I've had anywhere.

The hostess had to take first price for being helpful, and the property could not have been nicer. Breakfast left nothing to be desired. Host and hostess are experienced adventure travellers and well worth talking to. Both are extremely fit and bike and run regularly. Make this your temporary home.
