Superfriendly atmosphere, great service, 5 min walk to the beach with great views of the city (including Table Mountain) and also very close to an excellent MyCiti bus connection to Cape Town and neighbouring suburbs.

Stayed here for a few days and it was great. The location is right near the beach, accommodation is luxurious and great value for money. But what makes this place stand above all others is the outstanding customer service I received. We had an issue with our car rental (flat battery) and were due to pick up a different car... More

I stayed 10 nights at Sunset Residence early December 2013. I was very happy with the quality of the room. Housekeeping was perfect, and everything was just as agreed via emails before my arrival. My host Fabrizio was extremely helpful and really made me feel like home. Since we share the same hobby (windsurfing) he was able to help me... More

Sunset Residence is a great place. It's close by the beach, perfect for surfers and excellent for discovering Cape Town with a simultaneous peaceful accommodation just a bit outside of the city. It's very clean and the rooms are large with everything you need. Instead of the sea, you can also take a swim in the clean pool. The owner... More

It was great to be at Sunset Residence. Extra safe position, 10 minutes driving to down town, very relaxing and, above all, the host is great: if have not made up your mind of the Cape area, just follow his suggestion!!!! Really great value for your money.

My two kids and I had a 11 nights stay from the end of July till the beginning of August. Even though it was in the midst of the South African winter, Sunset Residence kept us nice and warm and in high spirits. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment which was well kept and well equipped. Daily housekeeping was... More

We had a fantastic 2+ month stay at Sunset Residence, whilst on a working holiday in Cape Town. Fabrizio was an excellent host, happy to offer advice when needed or just let us get on with it. The housekeeping girls looked after us extremely well and the apartment was in good condition - if there was anything extra we needed... More

We stayed in the 5 bedrooomed house for 4 weeks from 23rd February. Fabrizio and his staff were most helpful and the house and gardens were perfect for us. There were 8 adults and two small children in our party and we had plenty of room and a bathroom per bedroom, 4 of them en-suite. Outside the swimming pool was... More
