Earthbound B&B
Ranked #3 of 78 Oudtshoorn B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 17, 2014

We are a retired French couple from Canada (Montreal) and traveled South Africa during 2 months renting 31 different lodgings. This one was #18. Wonderful. We had room #3, big comfortable bed, little kitchen: no stove but micro-wave, fridge, plates, cups, etc. Cable TV with lots of channels, free WiFi, free parking, terrace with table and chairs on the garden and the pool, BRAII, super bathroom with shower and bath apart. Excellent welcome from the owner. The breakfast has been delivered in our room confirmedly as a form we filled the night before and was very good. We stayed there just one night but we could stay longer.

The room and the service was perfect, good beds and very nice bathroom, furnished with personal touch of the guest lady.
Breakfast was served in our own patio overlooking a wonderful garden and swimming pool.

Like everyone else, it seems, we wish we had booked for more than two nights. Beautiful well-furnished rooms with every possible comfort and a delightful host for whom nothing was too much trouble. She has obviously put a lot of thought and love into Earthbound. There is also a lovely garden with a pool, a barbecue if you wish, and shade when you want it. We drove there from Calitzdorp (not anywhere near as nice as Oudtshoorn) through a fantastic mountain pass, only to exceed this tenfold the next day taking the Swartsberg pass to Prince Albert. We stopped so many times it took us three hours of breath-taking scenery. This was the first time we've been in the Karoo but we will certainly go again.

Room Tip: We had the garden room which was lovely, but our friends room upstairs was just as good with lovely...

Our best B&B in South Africa! Marie made us VERY welcome - and she had thought of everything. We now wish we were able to have stayed more than one night. In a league of her own! On top of all this - a swimming pool - welcome on a hot day, and excellent value for money.

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.
