We live in Cape Town, but like to go and stay in different places around our lovely Cape. Belle Ev has a beautiful separate from the main house small house called "the cube" The breakfast that we had in the main house was out of this world with amazing interesting little features in this grand old lady of a house....

Arriving in Muizenberg for a few days on business, we were warmly welcomed with Ottoman coffee and ginger tea. As it was winter, and the coldest spell for some time, the winter sheets and electric blanket were appreciated. The house is filled with an eclectic mix of objects both old and new, all displayed with an artist's eye for detail... More

We stayed at Bella ev for 3 nights, went on a trip and returned for 4 nights. The house is very special, there are interesting vases, pictures, ottoman and modern objects but the overal effect is calm and welcoming. I stayed in the Napoleon. The bath is painted in old gold, there are rich designs on the floor and the... More

We were enthusiastically welcomed to this quirky B&B. There were thorough explanations of various aspects of the house, which is an interesting historic building, decorated on the Ottoman style. It is lacking some of the modern touches, such as free wifi (apparently you have to pay for downloads), TV and tea/coffee making facilities. The breakfast was not to our taste,... More

I have spent a night at Bella Ev with my friend. We booked a room the very last minute. To our surprise, we were warmly welcomed and were treated to a great cup of Turkish coffee. It was nice to get a taste of home in South Africa after all. The room was decorated beautifully (Nice bathroom with bathtub). Although... More

I loved my gracious room. It was comfortable and private. Tea and coffee facilities readily available as well as a fridge. The location is great - very central. Only criticism: no choice at breakfast.

Kereme is a really nice and special host who is really ambitous in giving you all needed information about Cape Town and interesting sights. She uses her relations to make even special reservation in a restaurant. The guesthouse itself is furnished in a lovely and very tasteful way. It's really a special place to stay in Muizenberg.

What a wonderful weekend we had, we walked into the entrance which was like a room in the Louvre, were warmly greeted, given the dining room area and kitchen to entertain our family for dinner as if it were our own home and then had my 9 year old son wake up the next morning saying "Mommy I felt like...

Wealth and class should never be measured by money; that are found in substance and broad culture. The unassuming and iconic Bella Ev will undoubtedly find it's way to a front cover one day - if the owner agrees . The linen -glowing white. The rooms- creative. The bathrooms- creative. The library- thoughtful and mould of a well read house.... More

Bella Ev means beautiful life! A stay at Bella Ev really lives up to it's name! I stayed at Bella Ev for four months last August to December. The first three were during a time of intense work and the last month was for a holiday. Kerime and Ursula and not forgetting the wonderful Chaucer! went the extra mile on... More
