      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!

      The cottage is beautifully styled and decorated. The best however is the magnificent view of the mountains and vineyards, that can be seen from the stoep. Kent and Lynne were very kind and did their utmost to make us feel welcome. Such a pity we couldn't stay longer.

      We spent the past long weekend at Obiekwa and really enjoyed our time there.  It was lovely and peaceful and the view breathtaking. Our host was friendly and very helpful at all times.  The cottage was clean and nicely decorated - all that we needed was there.We would happily recommend the accommodation to anyone that wants to explore the Swartland.

      Such a lovely little cottage with it's own little pool and braai area so a lovely outside place. It was just my husband and I but we will go back again and take another couple with us as there is a room next door (no one else was in that room as we booked out the whole cottage). Kitchen is very kitted-out. Very friendly owners too!
