About Obiekwa Country House

Obiekwa Country House, like its sister Obiekwa Cottage, is located in the picturesque and quaint village of Riebeek Kasteel; with its wine estates, gourmet restaurants, festivals and weddings.

The country house is set in a quiet cul-de-sac and sleeps up to six guests in three luxury bedrooms. Each bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with either a bath or a shower. There is an open-plan living and dining area leading out to a large covered patio, with a barbecue area overlooking an adjoining vineyard. An additional feature of Obiekwa Country House is the option to provide greater privacy for one of the bedrooms, which has its own kitchenette, patio and barbecue.

There is also a swimming pool near the vines to cool down in on warm summer days. A petanque strip for a fun game of French bowls is available to guests too.

The weather was uncomfortably hot and an aircon unit in each bedroom would have been great.Also, maybe install a dishwasher in the kitchen. Otherwise, our stay was perfect.

The country house was in the most beautiful little town...the location of the cottage is perfect, being just outside of the main streets, but close enough to be able to walk into the centre of town .Very peaceful and and well equipped for self catering.Would have liked bigger bath towels and more of them and more than one hand towel.More toilet roll.It was very hot at this time of the year so an air conditioner would have been welcome in the bedrooms.Overall very nice house and would definitely return for a second visit.The pool was also very welcome

Just loved this place. So peaceful, so spacious, well equipped, etc. The pool was amazing for hot summer days. Evenings spent chilling out overlooking the vineyards. Couldn't have been more perfect for a relaxed family Christmas. Thank you.

Lovely hosts, perfect location overlooking the vineyards. Quaint, tranquil and picturesque. The perfect weekend escape. House is well equipped, cosy and lends itself to having a great time on the patio! I will definitely go back any day!!!!
