The host was super efficient, very kind and she loves cats which scores brownie points with me. Our cottage was well equipped and very spacious. The courtyard has a lovely pool and it had everything we needed for an overnight stay. When we go to Graaff Reinet again, we will definitely go back to Obesa.

Graaff Reinet Reviews
Graaff-Reinet is a town full of history with excellent hospitality.
Lovely old buildings, a fantastic coffee shop with lovely things to buy, a restful Karoo landscape.
Old homes and churches. The national park was great.
Lovely site seeing. Valley of de Desolation.
Not much to do. Maybe go walking.
The scenery and beautiful historic buildings
How the people of Graaff-Reinet have made something good into a great Tourist town for everyone.
Such a wonderful place, steeped in historical and natural interest. Museums, National Park and nearby Owl House.
Picturesque town, Reinet House Museum is a great stop, dinner at Pioneers, Nieu Bethesda to see the Owl House is worth the drive.
