All USDA /WHO sanitizing protocol enforced. Room sanitized as well as property daily. "The Overlooks" sanitation initiative uses cutting edge bio-engineering to sanitize our municipality. The Overlook offers three thatched chalets and a family suite with two bedrooms. All have a spectacular view of the Kalahari Desert and the vineyards of the Orange River Valley. Conveniently located in the center of Keimoes on the hilltop, privacy is a priority at The Overlook.

Our facilities include an endless horizon pool with a swim-up bar and deck, partially enclosed by a thatched lapa, as well as a braai/barbecue area with a lapa. We do not serve drinks; you are welcome to bring your own.

Your hosts are Eric, a native New Yorker, and his wife Anna, a South African. Eric was raised in an Indonesian kitchen and is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America. He is an award winning international chef. Dining at The Overlook will be an unforgettable experience.

All units also have fully equipped kitchenettes should you prefer to cater for yourself. No meals are included in the room rate as listed. Breakfast is always available at an additional R75 per person; lunches and dinners by reservation only. Arrangements for lunch or dinner should be made at least 24 hours in advance.

We are looking forward to being your hosts in the last truly untamed territory in sunny South Africa. We do social distancing for a living! One of the safest accommodations in Africa!!!!!

"Loved the view, the whole chalet. TV remote did not work but did not bother me as I went on the sleep early."

"We booked a three sleeper but had to pay extra for the mattress they place in the room and the bedding for my son to make it a three sleeper"

"Keimoes is beautiful, but hot - very hot! And the Overlook was the perfect oasis on our journey between JHB and the West Coast! Anna and Eric were the perfect hosts, providing a very comfortable stay in the most picturesque setting! And to top it off, they accommodated the most important member of our family - our puppy Blake!"

"Nice pool.Our late booking hadn't come through properly (or rather the owner had missed it), so the first night we had to stay in the appartement in the house, certainly not as nice as the chalets, but still fine. No outside area, but we could dit at the poolside of course, which was great. Second bed in the appartement in the house is very bad. Old and not good enough for renting out to guests, we had to put the matress on the floor.."

"The units are perched on a hilltop with a terrific view of the Orange River valley - and just below the chalets are a braai and a swimming pool with the same view. A great place for a weekend getaway somewhere warm."

"We were unfortunately for a very short stay at this beautiful place in Keimoes. We could have stayed another day or two. The swimming pool and braai area is beautiful and we did not even have time to explore it... The chalet is very nicely equipped with everything you might need, even filter coffee! Thank you so much, we enjoy our very short time very much!"

"Eric and Anna couldn't have been more helpful on the 2 occasions we stayed at The Overlook. The cottages are beautifully equipped and no stone left unturned for ease of overnighting and real comfort. Highly recommended"
