I would recommend this simple and friendly guesthouse for excellent location, views and convenience. It is an average sized home, which means there is no area to sit apart from the bedroom, as the house is in use by the family. However, that didn't bother us as we were out and about. The room had a comfy bed, small TV,... More

Easy to find and located with in walking distance to the local... More

I stayed at the Kalk Bay Guest house a while ago. On arrival the owner met me at the front door and immediately I sensed a warm welcome and personality. The room we stayed in were very clean and overlooking Kalk Bay harbour. This was probably me best experience in a very long time in a guest house. I would... More

Great guest house. Clean, private, close to everything in Kalk Bay. Our room had a view over the harbour. We only stayed one night, but it was enjoyable, and what we were looking for. Kalk Bay is a great place for a night away.

We loved being in Kalk Bay and you should definitely go if you enjoy browsing interesting crafty shops. Dont miss the contemporary art gallery and craft shop "Modern" which is above Olympia cafe. Kalk bay guest house has everything you need and a great view. We didnt realise that breakfast is extra and needs to be requested. Also make sure... More

Costa and the team running the house are very nice, just attentive enough, laid back hosts. Both rooms, leading onto the pool area, were great for our family stay. I'll recommend this guesthouse to anyone to stay at.

The host was very accommodating. Easy access to Kalk Bay restaurants and shops. Loved our stay. Will definitely be back. Was disappointed that there was no bath and the shower probably needs a revamp in the near future.

My family and I really love Kalkbay. I need to go back to this stunning little "dorpie" to finish off the shopping and browsing in the art shops. The restaurants are closely located and we were spoilt for choice. The staff at all restaurants were kind, well spoken and friendly. The top high light was dining at the Harbour House... More

My husband and I enjoyed staying at Kalk Bay Guest house, it was clean, well maintained inside and out and we had a lovely view. We had saved our room on a credit card, not knowing that we had to pay for the room in cash so that was frustrating but the owner was kind in giving us some time... More
