Our stay there was amazing - both the house and cottage are artfully furnished and full of charm and character! Totally spotless and comfortable in every way! Indoor fireplaces and outdoor braai area, with wood available! Gardens are immaculate and the extra touches made it special. The owner went out of his way to help us - thank you! The Diesel & Creme restaurant (also owned by same owner) offered delicious breakfast, and even has a fire pit to sit around as it was chilly. Interior decorations are astounding with great attention to detail! We will definitely be back soon! This place is not to be missed - 5 star in every way for a very affordable price!

Barrydale is a small yet charming village and we have been lucky to spend a night at the Karoo Moon House. The house is a little gem where all the details are perfectly offered for your comfort. It is a self catering unit with a warm atmosphere and interesting decor. The bed is huge and very comfy; in the shower you find organic toiletry products; in the small kitchen coffee locally produced and juice in the fridge. Highly recommended.

Just fab!
Arty, unique, eclectic and inspiring.
Those seeking something different will love this well priced, non pretentious abode next to their famous restaurant Diesel and Creme, where funky people meet.
Generous and georgeous.Loved it with all my heart. The suite has 2 bedrooms and a kitchen/diner with a big lounge beautifully decorated.

We had a lovely overnight stay and felt really well catered for during the cold winter days. The ambiance created by the wooden fireplace, enjoyed with a glass of red wine, was truly delightful. The hot shower was the best ever, with great pressure and a huge shower head. We loved the king sized bed and bedding, which were spacious and cozy, especially with the electric blanket.

The unit was well equipped with its own Nespresso coffee machine, which added a touch of luxury to our mornings. We appreciated the complimentary snacks, juice, milk, and water. The wood supplied for the fireplace added to the warm and cozy atmosphere. We also loved the lit tree outside our spot, which added a magical touch to our stay.

Thank you for making our visit so enjoyable.

Attention to detail! Gorgeous decor celebrating old word with a touch of quirk. Beautiful woven Towels from Barrydale weavers, delicious Kalahari organic body products, dinner reservations, wrap around balcony with 3 separate spaces to just be as the light changes under the lush vine pergola. A 5 min walk from everything. Easy seamless remote check in. Immediate response to any queries from hosts. Enough space for couple with child. Separate living area and kitchen that opens out to immaculately kept garden. Will definitely seek out for longer stay next time

Awesome stay. Quirky but topnotch and impeccable facilities. Very neat, clean, private and attention to detail. Value for money and the host, Dean, was great. Conveniently located to restaurants in the town. Making this our future stopover in Barrydale.

After what seemed like a never ending road trip, we arrived in Barrydale late afternoon. We found the Karoo Moon House and stayed in the Cottage for the night. Clean, well priced, retro, good WiFi, no TV (which was fine), and a very comfortable bed. All good. Would stay again.

That was the best night's sleep I have had in ages. It's so quiet, just the sound of the fridge ticking over and the birds singing. The décor is "divine": fun, funky and it all fits together perfectly. They have thought of every need possible and provided for it. I felt refreshed, renewed and ready to carry on with my road trip after a really good night's sleep in a comfortable bed with crisp clean sheets. My soul was very happy here! I stayed in the cottage and will be back to try out the house :)

The Karoo Moon House & Cottage are "homes" that will make you feel like a local and a VIP at the same time! So much character, yet so homey - we enjoyed every room and seating area, as well as the delightful garden. You simply do not want to leave! Don't miss this fabulous space in Barrydale!

Surprise find. Comfy, beautifully decorated, clean, little Karoo house full of charm and character. Very well considered space with loads of ‘thoughtful extras’. Great location for exploring on foot. Super value for money. Friendly, very helpful owners. A must try!
