a 3 star SA graded guesthouse in a quiet section of Cape Town in Fresnaye , above the the hubbub of Sea Point. Nice proximity to the restaurants in Regent Road - ask Conchita for recommendations. We opted for NV-80 which was superb. Room was clean , a balcony attached. Our room was on the bottom floor and there was... More

This was one of the best places we (father, daughter, 15) we stayed in during our 23 days trip through South Africa and Swasiland. Maarten is a superb host and does more than you can expect from a host. The room, breakfast and staff, all perfect. Fresnay is a quit, neat and safe area from where trips are easy to... More

This guesthouse is situated in a nice and quiet area of Capetown close to the coastline and busstops. The minute you walk in you feel welcome and at home. Maarten is a brilliant host, once you've met him you feel like you've known him for years. His staff is very kind and helpfull. Service is here written in capitals, not... More

If you are looking for somewhere relaxed and chilled out to stay in Cape Town, look no further! We were made to feel so at home right from the outset, firstly by Conchita, then by Maarten himself, who is a perfect host. We hope he won't mind if we describe him as very laid-back, it is a compliment and creates... More

The owner was very friendly and helped a lot, even before arriving, with lots of helpful information. The breakfast was excellent. At the end he gave me lots of good advice where to go or what route to take (i was going from cape town to johannesburg). Thanks a lot for everything.

I could only stay for one night in the tiny room, but the experience was great. Maarten and his staff make you feel at home, the pool area is wonderful, some of the rooms have the most excellent views, area is safe and during breakfast it's easy to mingle with the other guests. If you want to. Perfect if you... More

Our stay was quite short but very enjoyable. The breakfast was also very nice. The only draw back was that the rooms were a little noisy. Even though we had the smallest room, it still had all the facilities that one would require. I will certainly recommend this place to anyone travelling to Cape Town!

Were staying for our first 4 nights at Maartens and were smitten with the views and the charm of the house. Only the 1st floor rooms might get a bit noisy depending on the sleeping and walking habits of the 2nd floor guests ;-) Maarten himself took perfect care of us and we couldn't have felt more like at home...

Where to begin, this is just the most wonderful guesthouse. Maarten and his staff are just so lovely! We stayed for 2 weeks and had the smaller room next to the pool. Maarten was concerned when we arrived if we would be happy with the smaller room but it was perfect for us. We loved being next to the pool.... More

We arrived late at night but Maarten was waiting for us and made us feel welcome. The second night we got an upgrade to a very nice room. First room was simple but ok. Breakfast was very tasteful. Guesthouse has a good location. Close to all the highlights.
