Located in the southwest of South Africa, Barrydale is a village on the border of the regions Overberg and Klein Karoo. It’s an excellent place to visit if you want to spend time outdoors. There’s plenty of parks and nature centres in the area, including the Boosmansbos Wilderness Area, an excellent spot to go to a hike. And there’s lots to do in town as well: grab a coffee at Route 62 Stop or do some shopping at Hardys Memories of Africa. We’ve created a list of our favourite Airbnb vacation rentals in Barrydale. So keep reading and check out the options.
This bungalow is located right next to the town centre. Stop for some food at Mez Karoo Kitchen. Then, spend the day hiking through Zuurberg Nature Reserve.
The bungalow is situated on a farm and can sleep up to three guests. Should you need to get some work done, there’s a space to work with a laptop and wireless internet. You’ll also find free parking on site and a full kitchen to cook your meals in.
