Guest Reviews

Just perfect and personal

Marie and Ayla have once again made every effort to conjure up a wonderful overnight stay. Everything is very clean, and very personally designed, breakfast leaves nothing to be desired, even a massage was organized in-house. Definitely here again next year.

Beautiful and relaxing

We loved our stay at this lovely guesthouse! Our room was tastefully decorated and it was convenient to have our car parked right outside. The owner and the staff are amazing and made us feel very welcome. The breakfast was perfectly balanced and served in the beautiful outdoor area by the pool. The pool area is wonderful with relaxing comfortable sun loungers in an exotic and beautiful compound. We would love to come back and can highly recommend this guesthouse!

Lovely and clean, friendly staff, good breakfast.

Spotlessly clean with a welcoming drink and home made sweets in our lovely big room. Everything was thought of. Beware of the ceiling fan if you’re tall 😂. Host friendly and very helpful as were the staff. Quirky gardens with a pool which was great to use after a long hot day. Very Nice breakfast. It was lovely to stay here. Thank you.

High quality accommodation and servicel

Room was spacious and had its own private and shady sitting area. Breakfast excellent and served in shade close to pool. Nothing was too much trouble and staff very willing to recommend places to eat in the evenings.

Absolutely the best price-performance ratio

Very nice, quiet B&B with spacious, clean and, above all, very lovingly furnished rooms. The pool area offers cooling and relaxation including cold drinks. The hostess is always available for tips and help. Highly Recommended!

A dream in Oudtshoorn

What a great oasis. A totally lovingly furnished B&B. The hostess and her staff are great. The breakfast is very imaginative. End the day by the pool in the evening - wonderful. Drinks are provided.

Lovely Guesthouse in Oudtshoorn

We were staying two nights in Earthbound Guesthouse and we really enjoyed our time there. Ayla was a great host and she did everything to make us feel welcomed. Before arrival the communication was already very easy on Whatsapp. The breakfast was very good and because we needed to leave earlier in the last day, Ayla even organized a breakfast bag for us. The rooms are quite spacey and very well equipped. The poolarea also seems very nice, but in our case we didn't have time to try it out.
I would definitely stay there again when going back to Oudtshoorn.

Lovely Stay!

Stayed only a night while traveling the Garden Route but what a lovely homely stay. Wish we could stay longer. The room had everything you need for a good night's sleep and the breakfast was so good the host made a special effort to be sure that we had a good vegan breakfast! There was your own parking spot. A lovely pool.

Great guesthouse in Oudtshoorn

We were now in the accommodation for the third time. The welcome and support is very warm. You get lots of tips on excursions and restaurants and help with booking/reservations. We are always thrilled by the tasteful design of the rooms and the outdoor area. Great facilities and decoration. We love it. The rooms are very cozy and comfortably furnished. Hairdryer, bathrobe, shampoo etc are available. The beds are very good and there is a heated bed for cold nights. Laundry service is offered and you can book a massage. Breakfast is very tasty. Definitely always our choice should we be traveling in the area again. Many thanks to Marie and team for the lovely stay.

Excellent accommodation.


Great accommodation. Nice attentive hostess. You got a lot of tips. The staff was also very friendly. You could use the barbecue area. Drinks were available at cost price. Unfortunately, we were only there for two nights.

Great b&b

This is a really lovely setting, with the rooms having private outdoor sitting areas. Everything is very comfortable and clean. The owner Marie is a wonderful host, friendly, welcoming, and concerned that our visit was perfect. She is very knowledgeable about places to visit in the area. Her dinner recommendations (Jemima's and Nostalgie) were both excellent. This was one of the nicest b&bs that we visited during a 9-day trip to the Cape region of South Africa. Breakfast served in an intimate outdoor (but enclosed for the cool of the morning) dining area was perfect. We were very pleased with our visit.

A hidden gem in the Klein Karoo

Earthbound Guest House is a charming place! There is great attention to detail in the rooms we stayed in making it extremely welcoming. Everything we needed was available, including a private little seating area outside the room, which created more space and the opportunity to relax outdoors. The rooms and bathrooms were spacious and the staff was very professional and helpful. Breakfast was served in a lovely little shaded lapa. We will definitely come back should we be in the Oudtshoorn area again.

Loved our stay

A beautiful guesthouse with a gorgeous garden and pool area. The rooms are clean and the room we stayed in even had a little private garden with lounge chairs! The hostesses are very kind and helpful with anything. And not to forget, breakfast was well made and very delicious!

A Comfortable Trip

Great Pride and attention paid to this little place. A wonderful South African flavour and no detail left to chance. Even though there was Load Shedding, WiFi and Television were still available. The rooms were air conditioned which made the freezing wet weather easy to bare. Each morning was greeted with an incredible breakfast of starters and mains.

Cozy guesthouse with nice host and staff

Very nice and cozy guesthouse. Very informal and friendly, helpful staff. Rooms beautifully and lovingly furnished. Breakfast great. owner very nice. The whole facility is very comfortable. Would come back anytime.

oudtshoorn express

A very delightful stay with friendly reception and a delicious breakfast... The open air breakfast is something to experience... Host very helpful and knowledgeable to ensure client enjoy their stay...

Earthbound Heaven

My 3rd stay at the most profesional Guest House. Wonderful stay! I am happy to recommend any person for Business or pleasure to stay at this fantastic Guest House. They really go the extra mile to give not only the best service, but friendliness that make you feel at home.

Lovely stay

We had a lovely stay at Earthbound, and would happily have stayed longer. Rooms were super comfortable, breakfast was great, and the pool and gardens were a lovely place to hang around in the hot weather. Excellent and attentive service also from Marie and Ayla. Highly recommended.

Always fantastic to stay at Earthbound guest house

The earthbound guest house is always my first choice for accommodation in Oudtshoorn. I feel part of the family, so much so that I have a favorite room to stay in. Whenever I make a booking and request room no 1, Ayla always accommodates me. Fantastic friendly atmosphere.

 

Lovely welcoming hidden gem

Our expectations were achieved and more with this gem of a guesthouse. Our room was delightful with a cozy private outside sitting area, bathrobes, lots of toiletries and towels. The communal area was lovely, we enjoyed sitting in the sunshine sipping a cold wine. The breakfast was a real treat, something different to try each morning and nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommended

Cozy, we feel at home

A very charming BB, welcoming, pleasant and discreet owner. Very comfortable and well equipped room. Bathroom with shower, bathtub, bathrobes, pool towel... worthy of a very good hotel! We feel very comfortable, really like at home, in the evening we were tired and we were able to use the barbecue by the pool to spend a relaxed and quiet evening. Address that we really appreciated! We highly recommend this bed and breakfast if you are looking for a quiet, charming and well-placed place to discover, for example, the Cangos Caves... The + a secure parking space allocated for each room. Thanks again for your welcome. Laura and Peter

Probably one of the best, bed and breakfast. Where i have been.

Amazing place to overnight and the lady who rented out this bed and breakfast (forget her name unfortunately) is very kind. There is really nothing bad about it. The house is recommended for everyone who is staying for a short amount of time in this area. The rooms are clean and very up to date. Wrote bij room number 2. Who is still staying here.

If Carlsberg did Guest Houses ......

This is the standard which all other guest houses should aspire to achieve.
We stayed here for 2 nights in Feb 2023 and we couldn't fault anything about the place. The breakfasts were freshly prepared and varied every day, there is a lovely pool to dip in after a day sightseeing, the rooms were immaculate and everyone who works at Earthbound is committed to making your stay and enjoyable as possible. If you are looking for somewhere to stay in Oudtshoorn, within easy reach of the town, I'd highly recommend booking at Earthbound - I guarantee you will not be disappointed!

Great guest house in the best location

Great guesthouse in a good location, we had a very nice room with a ceiling fan and fridge that worked even during a power outage. There was also an aircon which we didn't need, as it was very pleasant in the evening. Each room has its own small terrace with privacy. The owner and staff were all super nice. The breakfast was prepared with a lot of love and was different every day. A thousand thanks to everyone who made our stay a unique experience

Beautiful guesthouse with a great garden and impeccable rooms

Beautiful rooms in a great, well-kept guesthouse with a beautiful outdoor area/pool. The location is not really central, but it is in a safe residential area. The owner was very friendly and did everything perfectly.

Magnificent stay in Oudtshoorn

Earthbound is a lovely guesthouse. the accommodation, service, and food were brilliant. The accommodation was affordable and definitely value for money. Will definitely recommend booking at Earthbound in Oudtshoorn

A little paradise hidden behind a gate on a suburban street

Our bedroom was huge with the added bonus of a private shaded courtyard with sun beds, chairs and a table. The bed, bathroom and facilities were excellent. There was a delightful pool area and we had breakfast sitting beside it each morning. A very lovely breakfast as well! Hosts and staff were exemplary.

Beautiful guesthouse

We booked 2 rooms for the weekend with the kids. They had their own room and loved it. From the minute we arrived we were well treated by Marie. She made sure everything was perfect. The staff were friendly at all times. The rooms are beautiful and there's a nice pool and garden area to relax in. Great place I would recommend to anyone. Thank you Marie and staff for a great experience.

Just perfect

We had a perfect stay at Earthbound guesthouse. The room was splendid, with a personal touch. Marie is a super, friendly and warm, host who gave the best advices. We certainly wil return another time!

Home away from home

What a wonderful home away from home. The rooms and bathroom have what you need and are very comfortable. We stayed there for 6 nights and were treated so well. The staff is so friendly and welcoming. Zettie is an absolute treasure and we loved seeing her beautiful smile at breakfast every morning. The breakfasts were an adventure. Each morning you got a little surprise before your normal bacon and eggs. Marie, the owner, and Ayla, the manager does a superb job of making sure you are comfortable and that you want nothing. We had a lovely stay.

Guesthouse amazing

Marie and Ayla are the perfect hosts and helped us to make the most of our stay, eg booking a meerkat safari, massages, or restaurant reservations. They equipped us also with a lot of recommendations for our onward journey. And not forgot to mention the awesome breakfast 😄

10 days holiday stay over December 2022

We stayed 10 days. Personal friendly service, awesome breakfast different every morning. The staff was awesome from house keeping, aranging a braai for us all set up, and packed us a nice food parcel as we wanted to leave early. We stayed in ROOM 3 had our own patio that we could build a few models. Will sure recommend EARTHBOUND anytime.

EXCELLENT STAY AT EARTHBOUND

Thanks Marie and team for a lovely stay in Oudshoon. You guys rock!!!! The breakfast was awesome and the beds amazing! You have thought of everything that one would need for a short stay. My daughter and I had a lovely stay.

Beautiful, comfortable stay at Earthbound Guest House

I only stayed at Earthbound Guest House for one night- unfortunately for me! We had a lovely stay. The room was beautifuly decorated. The bed was really comfortable and it came with everything we needed (with some lovely touches). The breakfast exceeded my expectations - lovely presentation and very tasty. We were full up with the two courses! Marie was a lovely, flexible host. Would stay here again in heartbeat!

Never experienced such a great service

Our little family really enjoyed our stay at Earthbound Guesthouse. Management and staff have been more than welcoming and tried to make our stay as pleasant as possible (which is not an easy task if you are traveling with a four months old baby 😁). Breakfast was fantastic and they even helped us to order dinner which was delivered to the guesthouse for us. One morning they noticed that our car has a flat tire and they arranged everything to get it fixed while we were having breakfast. We didn't even have to ask for help, they just did it. Just incredible!! Hospitality at its best!! Thank you very much for such a great stay!

2 night stay.

Choose this lovely guest house as it was close by for a very early start to view the wild meerkats. Just on the outskirts of town. But still close enough to be able to walk to the center for food & drinks (15 mins). Spotlessly clean & cozy apartment. Great breakfast cooked fresh to order & included in the price. Nice pool area with sun loungers & clean pool - pool towels provided. Very helpful friendly hosts. Private secure off-road parking.

Great place, excellent stay

The room we had was very private, well equipped and very comfortable. The host and staff were pleasant and always helpful. The breakfast got your day starting with a smile. Great ambience and wonderful experience.

Peaceful Rest

Apart from expecting a clean and tidy room I tend to look at ease of access and whether or not I will be disturb by fellow guests moving about and visa versa. Stay at the Earthbound Guest House was one of the best accommodations I've had the privilege of stay at. Cosi enough to feel secure, but secluded enough be comfortable. All in all a pleasurable experience and highly recommended.

Had a great stay, lovely rooms, good breakfast and very friendly welcome

Wonderful stay, friendly welcome, safe place. Cozy and attractively furnished. Own parking space, Good restaurant in the area. The breakfast was very good and was possible at 7:15 am due to an early departure.

Extremely friendly family and great breakfast

We stayed there for 3 days with 2 couples. Great stay. Marie and her companions are super friendly and courteous. Room 2 on the 1st floor super nice and large and also No. 4 class, with its own terrace at the back in the countryside. Rooms very clean and in great shape. The 2 course breakfast was excellent. Great value for money.

Relaxing charming oasis

WOW. What an amazing little oasis this place. Attention to every little detail, first time stepping in and we fall in love. The room is big and spacious, the bed & pillows are one of the best we had in our trip in SA. Bathroom is also spacious she even put bathrobes. For your privacy there is a small terrace in front of the room with 2 chairs & table including blankets in case you are cold at night sitting outside. The pool area is so beautiful, you can just chill there. Everything is super clean. You can park inside the property and everything is safe. A must stay place while in Oudshoorn.

Highly recommended for an Oudtshoorn Stay.

Very nice and comfortable Inn in a residential area of Oudtshoorn. Everything we needed was provided in the room. We were not feeling well with intestinal viruses, so owner helped us choose an appropriate dinner restaurant nearby. Also helped us plan our morning the following day to the Caves and Ostrich Farm. Breakfast was delicious. The staff was kind and helpful. Would definitely return and recommend.

Awesome stay

Earthbound Guest House is an absolutely amazing place to stay in Oudtshoorn. Staff and owner are extremely kind and helpful, paying attention to every last bit and piece that might make your stay as wonderful as possible. They helped to calm mit nerves before we got there, helped us booking tours while we were there, and even ordered our pizza for us. The place itself is newly renovated, is carefully equipped and decorated, and breakfast is amazing- I would live there if I could. ♥️ Thank you for these wonderful days in Oudtshoorn, which- by the way- I enjoyed more than the hip places at the coast. Keep working like you do- others should follow your example!

the best!!!!!

Oudshoorn is een plek waar ik als ik in ZA altijd weer terug wil om 2 redenen: het geweldige Guest house Earthbound en het heerlijke eten bij Nostalgie, het nummer 1 restaurant.
Voor mij was het de 5e keer dat ik bij Earthbound logeerde. Wat ik zo knap en fijn vind is dat ik noooooooooit teleurgesteld ben. De klantvriendelijkheid en de ambiance zijn altijd geweldig. De kamers zijn stuk voor stuk met liefde ingericht: alles is aanwezig en er zijn heerlijke bedden. De badkamer is prachtig; er zijn ook badlakens om buiten op de ligbedden te liggen. Er is voor iedereen een stukje buitenruimte bij de kamer met privacy. De tuin is mooi, het zwembad schoon. Het maakt me iedere keer blij als ik er ben. Er is een honest bar, Het ontbijt is iedere dag een beetje anders en zooooo lekker. Ik kijk alweer uit naar de volgende keer. Er was een minpuntje: Marie, de eigenaresse was op vakantie. Ik heb haar gemist!!

Stylish comfort

Absolutely fabulous. Earthbound is an oasis of comfort, individual style and warmth. Marie, Ayla, and Zettie could not have been more helpful, booking dinner and giving us a lift to it and suggesting lots of interesting things to do locally - feeding the giraffes is definitely one of the highlights of our trip. C P Nels Museum well worth a visit. We loved our time here.

Lovely people

The guesthouse is tastefully furnished and the staff are very genuinely friendly. I also enjoyed breakfast. The room was stocked with tea, coffee, sherry and nice cold water. Utensils were provided when you order takeout

Lovely Karoo stay

Weather was not good but we were so snug and cozy Loadshedding was horrible but our hosts just made everything so comfortable for us. Breakfasts were flippen amazing. Staff was lovely. We can highly recommend this establishment. Hope to be back soon

A wonderful and recommended place:)

We had a wonderful time in this lovely place. It was our honeymoon and a nice basket with cider, 2 glasses, and little snacks waited for us on the bed:) we got a beautiful and Pleasant room. Nice bathtub. Good atmosphere. The breakfast was delicious and the owner and staff who were sooo nice agreed to let us have it earlier. Really recommend!

Summit in Oudtshoorn

Everything, everything, everything and everything... nice room, nice furnishings, think of it and it's there: a good bed, great bathroom, a simple bucket to do your laundry or a good laundry service. It's all there. In front of your room there is a place with privacy. Other guests cannot look inside. Also in winter it is a good stay: air conditioning with heating and in the bathroom there is a heater. This was my anniversary at earthbound: 5th time and the quality is always top. The staff is customer-oriented, helpful and interested. Breakfast is delicious. the garden nice, well looked after, there is a lovely swimming pool, there are sun beds and there is of course braai facilities.

Super friendly and tasteful guesthouse


Earthbound guesthouse is a cozy stay in the suburb of Oudtshoorn (South Africa). It's in one ordinary street, but once you go through the gate, you're taken by surprise. A very warm welcome. Pleasant people who give you a warm welcome and have good tips for your trip. The rooms are tastefully decorated. It has really paid attention. No room is the same and fully equipped. We also had a seat outside under the hoods. Very tasty. The breakfast is different every day. That is a nice change from all the 'standard' breakfasts of the days before. Care has also been taken at breakfast. We had a nice stay.

The Best Accommodation

We received the perfect reception and direction to clean & comfortable, beautiful rooms fully furnished for all our needs.
Both host & manager ensured our comfort & provided a 5 star breakfast. Their warmth extended to providing us with a map and direction for a scenic onward journey.

one night stop

Very nice bed and breakfast on a quiet location. The room was very nice and had everything we had expected. The owner and staff are very friendly and helpfull.
Each room has its own parking place behind a gate.
My wife and I had a very pleasant stay

Absolute awesome

Home away from home

Loved all the little extra touches - especially my little sherry next to the bed to warm me up during the chili winters evening. The hot blanket kept me cosy when it was frosty outside.
Had the most scrumptious breakfast! Wish I was there to enjoy the hospitality for longer than just my one night stay.

GREAT!

The staff of this location is very welcoming and friendly, they even gave us good dinner tips. The room was nicely decorated and the location looked great! The breakfast was also very extensive and well cared for. Highly recommended for everyone.

Amazing time at Earthbound

We stayed at Earthbound for one night on our trip down the garden route. We found that it was one of the best accommodation that we had stayed in so far. The beds were extremely comfy and even though the weather was cold we had enough blankets to keep us warm. We experienced load shedding during our stay but you would never have known, the lights and the wifi still worked and even the shower was still warm. We had a lovely chat with the owner who welcomed us to the area and had a lovely dinner at a restaurant that was recommended to us. Breakfast was absolutely lovely and set us up for our day in wilderness. Plus I don’t know what kind of chocolates were on the bed but whatever they were they were amazing! The only addition i could make if i could, and it’s very minor was also add some hot chocolate sachets to the rooms for those colder nights. Once again thank you for your hospitality and we recommend earthbound to anyone wanting to stay in the earthbound area!

Cozy and sophisticated: an oasis in Oudtshoorn

Warm welcome and best care during the stay. Good tips from the sporty, likable Mary and good conversations. We had a pretty room with lovely details and small delicacies. Despite the winter cold, the room warmed up quickly thanks to the air conditioning. The garden is a feast for the eyes and very well maintained, the breakfast a culinary delight. We'd love to come back!

Interesting oasis in Oudsthoorn

This is our second stay at Earthbound and we love it. The garden and pool are lovely. The breakfasts are delicious, the coffee is great and the yogurt/ muesli/fruit combo is a winner. Our guests from the USA said it was the best accommodation and also loved the breakfast. The enclosed cozy patio with heaters was a great way to end the day with a glass of wine. We did not even notice load-shedding with the convenient inverter in place.
Thanks, Marie and staff, we will definitely be returning.
Regards Karen and Fred

Excellent and cozy stay!

Excellent and cozy stay!
Such a warm welcome by Maria the hostess.
Made us feel comfortable and safe.

Scrumptious pancake breakfast I have ever eaten.
Safe and secure location.

Electric blanket and aircon provided for those winter nights.
Stylish decor!

A sweet retreat.

We stayed here on our garden route journey honeymoon. This place was very quiet and peaceful. Our room was so cute and we felt at-home instantly. The staff were great and our breakfast was delicious! Would definitely recommend for anyone traveling through Oudtshoorn.

Just Perfect

This place is amazing and offers everything you need. The rooms are clean and impressively nice and so many little things are added to make you feel special like sweets on the bed extra muffin after breakfast and more. There is a pool waiting for you. The breakfast is perfect, and the staff is super lovely. Even gave us a free upgrade! I could write so much more but honestly just book it and you will love it!
Looking forward to staying with you again :)

36one Mtb Trip 2022

I've been going to Earthbound yearly for 7 years to compete in The 36one Mtb event. Marie and her team are amazing. What Earthbound has to offer is of great value for money, if not more. Breakfasts are amazing, rooms beautiful and clean. What more can you ask for...

Mike

WOW!!!!

wow!!!!!
absolute luxury with many hidden little surprises like a sherry decanter, with crystal glasses, electric blanket, dressing gowns, bathroom heater, and the list goes on ! stunning two course breakfasts, extremely friendly hosts, very clean (and I am very fussy)...

THE place to stay in Oudtshoorn

End of March my husband and me stayed at Earthbound Guest House and were deeply impressed of this cosy, lovely place, beautiful decorated with a green oasis around the pool. Although being there for the first time Marie and Ayla made us feeling like coming home. So we enjoyed the comfortable beds, the very private terrace and the delicious breakfast with homemade muffins! Truly for us THE place to stay in Oudtshoorn! Doris

Moderne und saubere Unterkunft mit leckerem Frühstück

Wir waren 2 Nächte in dieser Unterkunft und es war eine der besten unserer Rundreise. Wir wurden herzlich empfangen und die Gastgeberin hat uns auch direkt eine Tour in den "Cango Caves" gebucht. Alles sehr sauber und gepflegt, leckeres Frühstück

Special mention

Still the best guesthouse I stayed in. From check-in to check out and everything in between it was a pleasure. The breakfasts do deserve a special mention. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. Thank you.

Earthbound Guesthouse- the art of excellence and wholesomeness
This beautiful place, with its equally beautiful people, is the epitome of wholesomeness, friendliness and great hospitality. I never before felt the urge to write a review about a place like I did right after we arrived at Earthbound. I enjoyed every moment of our stay with you and it felt like I was right back in my garden after our long trip from Cape St Francis Bay..beautiful and peaceful all in one. It's definitely a place I would like to "come home" to again, next time for much longer. Thank you for all the beauty you created for us, your guests. Take a bow.

Soraya

A very very nice guesthouse with very interesting decor, super clean and Marie is a wonderful host. Highly recommended 👌

Dear Marie,

Having landed back in the UK on Monday 21st, I just wanted to reach out to say a very big thank you on behalf of my family and I for letting us stay in rooms 103 and 107 at your beautiful guesthouse on 11th March 2022.

Your guesthouse really is a 'home away from home' feel, the vibe and energy were effortless let so sophisticated and we will strongly be recommending it to friends and family for when they next visit South Africa.

Wishing you all the very best,

Mooiste plek waar ek nog gebly het.
Earthbound Guest House is pragtig, stylvol en smaakvol gemeubileer. Daar is aan alles gedink en die totale opset laat jou so baie welkom voel dat jy nie wil terugkeer na jou eie huis nie. Elke kamer het 'n privaat stoep vir lekker kuier. Jy sien en hoor nie die ander gaste nie, die gastehuis is groot genoeg daarvoor. Ontbyt is heerlik en vars voorberei met vrugte, muesli en joghurt, asook die warm ontbyt: bacon, eiers, wors en gebraaide sampioene (dit wissel elke dag) en 'n heerlike muffin om saam te vat. Die tuin- en swembad-gedeelte is baie mooi en goed versorg. Dankie Marie dat jy ons tyd so aangenaam gemaak het, ek sien jou weer.

A home away from home

I am glad that my first experience with a b&b was with Earthbound, cause now I have a beautifull picture in my heart and great memories to tell my children.

It is situated in a quiet beautifull area at Oudtshoorn.The first thing that attracts you when coming in is their beautifull garden evergreen..clean yard and the pool. Their decor is to die for, has a feel of Africa inside and out, you realy feel at home.

Inside the rooms are neatly decorated, bathrooms are neat and classy each with a bath and a shower for each room and clean towels are provided everyday.
The rooms have everything that a person would need to use at home in any case, the beds have electric blankets to make you warm in the cold weather.

The staff is very kind and helpfull.The owner is a beautifull lady eversmiling and hands on. The breakfast that is served is delicious, a variety of everything.

If you want to get intouch with your inner person, relax and unwind this is a place to go...A home away from home.

I would recommend it to anyone and everywhere. It is worth it.

Much appreciation to the owner....we will definitely come back *smiles*

Regards,
Zipho

We enjoyed our two night stay at Earthbound en route to Cape Town for the annual Argus Cycle Race. We have previously used other accommodation in Oudtshoorn but we are pleased to have made the choice of staying at Earthbound and will certainly in future utilise your facility and also recommend your services to our friends and family.

From the minute you walk through the door of this establishment there is an air of tranquillity. Marie the proprietor welcomed us and showed us to our room (room 4). We couldn't believe our eyes when she opened the door to the beautifully appointed room which was tucked away and very private. Beautiful soft tones, plump pillows, a wonderful big bed, air conditioning and tea and coffee making facilities, all this in a guest house? Should be a 5* hotel! The bathroom was very modern and everywhere was spotlessly clean. Outside there was a fire pit seating and lounge chairs. And at the front of the property a beautiful clean swimming pool. Marie was very helpful and accommodating and explained breakfast arrangements, provided suggestions for dinner and offered to make a reservation should we choose. After a blissful nights sleep breakfast set us up for the day. Excellent choice including hot items. This place is a real gem and great value for money, I'd certainly stay here again if I came back to Oudtshoorn.
