I (unfortunately) only visit Cape Town two or three times a year on business, but The Oak and Vine is my accommodation venue of choice. The rooms are always spotless, the staff welcoming and the breakfasts superb.

We visit Cape Town fairly regularly. On the last 3 occasions we have stayed at the Oak and Vine. The last visit in early April was as great as ever and of course now we feel like we are visiting our CT home! Derrick and William went out of their way to be helpful. The s/c squirrel cottage which we... More

Large room, very comfortable with nice bathrooms, large and soft bed. All nicely decorated in this old house. You feeling like in the countryside and you are just in the outskirts of Cape Town. Best if you have your own car because its a bit too far from the city. We did not but the staff were very helpful to... More

My wife and I stayed at the Oak and Vine for the first time from 28th February to 9th March 2014. We wanted a guesthouse within easy reach of Newlands Cricket Ground, and our regular venue was unavailable. The Oak and Vine was not a disappointment. From the moment you enter the gate and are met with the beautiful Cape... More

I stayed at the Oak and Vine in mid February with my wife and parents. We have been to Cape Town a number of times, but parents had not and were a little nervous about what to expect. All my previous experiences in CT had been based around property rentals, so this was new for me as well. We were... More

I spent a wonderful week at the Oak&Vine, during my first visit to Cape Town and South Africa. The arrangements were clear and smooth, location was quiet yet convenient, staff were very attentive, breakfast was ample and delicious, and the rooms were clean. If anything, I felt guilty that they kept giving me clean towels and sheets so often! First... More

The staff at Oak and Vine Guest House offered me an extraordinary welcome on my first visit to Cape Town. Derrick, William, and Lily attended to every request I made -- and anticipated more than a few others. The setting was lovely and conveniently located; my room a wonderful haven after a busy day. Breakfast and room amenities were excellent.... More

We are happy to recommend the Oak and Vine. We were given a warm welcome, despite arriving before the stated check-in time. The room was very clean, the sheets and towels changed regularly, and we had a quiet night's sleep. The breakfasts were plentiful and served with grace and attentiveness. A pre-breakfast walk in the adjacent park with views of... More

We were on a business trip and needed to come in late as well as made arrangements for a guest for breakfast. Nothing was too much trouble. Our accommodation was tasteful and comfortable. I will most definitely return.
