Reviews for Osfontein Corbelled Guest House
Deu vacances a Sudfrica i aquest lloc est entre els millors on m'he allotjat. Histric i molt especial. Hi tornar !.
Beautiful farm! Wonderful hosts.
Beautiful place for rest and star gazing. Slept in the tree house, very comfortable.
Had a great stay. Owners are very friendly and we had a great Karoo experience.
"Small piece of history"
We stayed at Osfontein on our way back home from the Western Cape. The beautiful scenery, Karoo night sky, full moon and great accommodation was absolutely wonderful. Our hosts greeted us with so much warmth we felt right at home. The house is really something to see! It is small but perfect for a couple or small family. No lights (only candles) which is absolutely wonderful and gives great ambiance to the house. Definitely worth a visit!
