Friendly people, good service and clean tidy unit. Zebra room could do with tighter mattresses, but this is my opinion. I will again make use of them in the future. Thank you for the delicious breakfast (available on request)

It's in Strand near Somerset West and well out of Cape Town - not what I expected, which was my fault because I rushed the booking too much. You really need a car, which I didn't have, as the place isn't very central for anything .. which is in many ways part of its considerable charm and character. The surroundings... More

Thank you for your kind words. It is never easy to experience all the Cape Peninsula has to offer without a car but I have to say we found your approach to getting around incredibly refreshing. Not having a car didn't stop you - you game-fully purchased a R38 return ticket to Cape Town central and discovered the essence of... More

It was our first trip to Africa. We have an apartment in the Chameleon Lodge rented (a well-furnished attic room with bathroom, kitchen and private terrace). But the two hosts Sandy and Jake have not only provided a nice place, but also brought us closer to South Africa. Gingerly they have given us the highs and lows of the country.... More

We were in South Africa, and especially in the Strand/Somerset West area during the international adoption of our son. The Chameleon Lodge met our need and beyond! The space was perfect and allowed for safety in our son exploring our temporary home as well as privacy. Everything we needed was provided and the lodge was clean and comfortable and we... More

I stayed Chameleon Lodge with wife and 3 daughters. This accommodation is a newly renoveted apartment, which equips 2 bedrooms and a spacious living room. All kitchenware is clean and easy to use. The surrounding is safe and calm. Regrettably there are some small ants in the living room.

I had a great time staying there. The hosts are friendly and chat to you. I would recommend them to anyone planning to stay in or near Cape Town. It is near all necessary ammenities. Worth every penny.

The host was sweet and friendly. You really feel like coming home. Only of my weight the bed was a bit to soft. In general no problem. It would been nice if each room could have choose there own channel on the TV.

The guesthouse is walking distance from the beach and therefore gives you good opportunity to exercise. The service is extremely friendly and the breakfast excellent. The WiFi service is not that great.

We had a family reunion in Somerset West. Chameleon Lodge was close to our venue and also close to Gordon Bay where we spent a fair amount of time. It is in a pretty and quiet area. The owners were friendly, but let us get on with our own weekend. We would definately stay there again if we come down... More
