My grown-up daughter and I enjoyed a fantastic week at Obiekwa whilst visiting family in the area. The accommodation was very comfortable. Light, airy rooms with good ceiling fans. The en-suite bathrooms and power showers were a pleasure, and the well equipped kitchen had everything needed for an enjoyable stay. We also made good use of the stoep and braii area, and especially enjoyed the pool and outside space. Lots of privacy. Will definitely be going back to stay next year!

There is no tv in the room, however as long as you have a book (or make use of the magazines and games that are supplied), it's not a problem. The Wi-Fi connection was good.

Obiekwa Cottage is situated on the edge of Riebeek Kasteel in a beautiful garden that overlooks the vineyards. For the energetic it is within walking distance of the town square. It has a splash pool which could be a life saver in the hot summer months. The two large rooms both have en suite bathrooms and fire places. They open up onto a lovely stoep with a braai. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. What a lovely place to rest and relax!

Had an amazing stay at this charming cottage. We felt at home thanks to the warm welcome and comfortable accommodation. The views from the veranda made our trip as we sat sharing wine by the fire while the sun set – bliss!
