Guest Reviews

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*

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.
