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...



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

Modern and clean accommodation with delicious breakfast
We stayed at this property for 2 nights and it was one of the best of our trip. We were warmly welcomed and the hostess booked us a tour of the "Cango Caves". Everything was very clean and well maintained, delicious breakfast!


Would like to thank you for the very good hospitality and beautiful place to stay

The breakfast was out of this world


Great hospitality
What a wonderful place to be, from friendly workers to beautiful rooms...patio is absolutely gorgeous and the food always well prepared.
Visit whenever you can definitely recommended.
It has a homely feel yet that holiday touch to it...truly satisfied 😌


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.


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


Baie gemaklik, smaakvol, netjies en skoon.

Heerlike, rustige verblyf en die ontbyt is uitstaande. Dankie!



Werklik uitstekend, vriendelik en georganiseerd.
Die eienaar en haar span is werklik "hands on" en maak seker elke besoeker verkry die nodige aandag deur vriendelike diens. Die gaste huis is werklik al hulle sterre werd en kan enige tyd aanbeveel word.



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.


South Africa

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.

We really enjoyed our short stay. We were well looked after and location was great.



Everything you needed was supplied, plus some things you didn't know you needed.
