Overall we really enjoyed out stay. The coffee wasn't great but the breakfast was superlative. The sleep was good though we were a little bit cold at night – more bedding would have been welcome. Lighting and mirrors in the bathroom could be better. We stayed in the family suite which had ample space.

Kristine is a wonderful host. We loved having breakfast outside at the pool area and loved the coffee bar idea. It's a beautiful guest house and we enjoyed the peaceful surroundings. It was an enjoyable experience and we will definitely be back.

The time it takes for us to feel relaxed and at home after walking into an establishment is an immediate indicator of what our assessment of the place will be. It is less about hooks in the shower, decorations or mirrors on the wall and more about the atmosphere and personal interaction with the host/hostess. Kristine, a delightful young Norwegian...

We were lucky enough to stay at Kristine and Thor's guesthouse before our trip to AfrikaBurn. The plan was to stick around for 1 day, but that ended up being two for all the right reasons. Riebeek Kasteel is a hidden gem, located remotely and beautifully between several vineyards. In many ways you get a true authentic African experience (opposed...

Kristine really went the extra mile to accommodate us. I stayed at Shiraz with all my bridesmaids the evening before our wedding. We also used the family room for hair and make up. The breakfast was fantastic, the pool is awesome on a hot day and everything is very clean. I would definitely go back.
