About The Islandview House

The Islandview House is a homely warm house situated in the heart of Upington, on the banks of the Orange River where an unexpected experience awaits you.

Nestled on the banks of the majestic Orange River, nature is on our doorstep away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Here you can relax and listen to the Visarend Fish Eagle and Hadida's calling. If however, you prefer to relax in our private and tranquil haven, there is a large swimming pool at your disposal. All en-suite rooms are exceptionally well appointed with own channel television and air-conditioning. There are a lounge and dining room, overlooking the river, and a fully equipped kitchen available. For the more energetic there are micro lighting and canoes/boat rides and skiing, to challenge the waters of the Orange River.

This establishment’s main attraction is its location on the banks of the Orange River. It is also within walking distance of several restaurants. However, all the excitement alluded to on its website was not in evidence. Perhaps this will be evident in summer as several braai areas abound on the grounds which could not accessed as door was locked.

WOW. What can I say. Very professional, yet friendly, clean and neat. Hostess went out of her way to make us welcome. Loved the stay there and would promote it anytime. Have reffered the accommodation to the Disabled Travel site for referral. Well done Anse.

Place is fine if a little quirky. Little information given to us when we arrived - just silently handed key and shown room. We were having a drink in garden in evening and door was locked to the outside - no one checked so we had to use hammer to get in!
