I recently visited a former classmate in Calitzdorp and enjoyed a very pleasant overnight stay at the Karoo Life B&B. The owners welcomed me and made me feel very much at home. The breakfast was outstanding.

The hosts are very friendly. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. They are busy with upgrades on the property - would love to go back once completed. Especially for the pizza oven and large stoep area!

this is an ideal location, close to restaurants and wineries. Our room in the garden was comfortable and very quiet at night. There is a spacious garden with good views over the surrounding countryside. Breakfast was served in a large dining room and was good quality. The owners (and their delightful boxer puppy) were very friendly and helpful in recommending places to eat.

My sister and I stayed 2 nights at the Karoo Life B & B and left wishing we'd booked for longer. From the stylish and comfortable room to the freshly cooked homebaked breakfast in the cousy guest lounge. The owner Leslie & Madeleine and their dog "Liefie" are warm and friendly. I would heartily recommend.

We had a lovely stay. The building dates back to 1880. The property was a little neglected by previous management, but the friendly new owners are busy making great improvements. The breakfast was lovely on the big outdoor patio; swimming pool also really nice!

Excellent service. Can really recommend this Guesthouse for anyone traveling to the Cape. They went out of their way to accommodate us. And the breakfast was outstanding. It was truly a home away from home.

Karoo life is perfectly situated within walking distance of shops and restaurants. The hosts were very helpful and went out of their way to accommodate us with restaurant booking and providing a private space where we could watch rugby.
