Well spaced for two couples. Clean and tidy. With a pool in this heat it was very refreshing. Unfortunately the house is quite close to the main road, so some noise from passing cars and helicopters spraying the field. Beautiful view and lovely lady owner!

We enjoyed making a fire and playing cards outside. The stoep was amazing and all four of us were on it making food, playing music and enjoying the view.the bedrooms are spacious and everything in the cottage are beautiful. Establishment's response:Thanks for your kind words.

What a little gem! We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay at Obiekwa.. missed coffee on the stoep overlooking the vineyards this morning. We loved that Obiekwa was not in the town centre; its a short stroll from town, and the peace and quiet away from the buzz was stunning. Well furnished, comfortable and owner Lynne went out of her way to accommodate us. Lovely lovely place.
