          Awesome relaxing weekend at Mare's guest house - we didn't want to leave the accommodation as it was so comfortable and beautiful there. Lovely scenery - trying to find the springbok in the veld, watching the birds and the bees. Really tranquil and peaceful. Aircon which was necessary and a lovely surprise - great care had been taken with every detail. We will definitely be back!

          Perfect location on the edge of town (thus with beautiful views) but still close to the main town centre. Well-equipped kitchen and braai area (which encloses so would still be useable in Winter). The table at the back overlooking the view and the passing Sprinbok was a piece of heaven. I would definitely stay again the next time I'm in Riebeek Kasteel

          What a wonderful place to enjoy a weekend away from the city. We were welcomed by our host and felt relaxed immediately. ChicShack is located walking distance to the town centre, while allowing you to have coffee in the courtyard, a sheltered braai area and watching the springboks play in the field- amazing.I would be back every weekend if possible!
