We were very lucky to find this little gem in Kenilworth as a family of 5 and it being a last minute booking. Bruce and Jeanie are very accommodating and excellent hosts. You can see by their exceptional ATD that Bruce is a former principal ;-) and we could not fault anything really. The rooms are well appointed; beds comfortable,... More

It was great pleasure to host you all. Thanks so much for your very kind remarks. Sorry about the traffic but a road was closed further up and they diverted traffic down Oak Avenue. We hope that it has now been resolved. We look forward to your next visit. Regards, Bruce & Jeanie Hosts More

Bruce and Genie were very welcoming and warm hosts. We had a family re-union with my father from Johannesburg and my brother from America, so for one week of our stay we had taken up half of the accommodation offered, as we each had our own rooms. We were very satisfied with all aspects of our B & B accommodation... More

Bruce was such an amazing host. I echo what the other reviewers said - this is a home away from home. The room was super comfy. The guest house is serene. The breakfasts were a highlight. Loved my stay there, and will be sure to stay here when I visit Cape Town in the future.

The guest block is self contained and guests can sit in a lounge or around the pool if desired; and come or go as you pleased. Breakfast was lovely with a good range of hot... More
