I was recently very upset to find that the Oak and Vine Guest House is not at all the way it was only a few months ago! I had previously visited here on business in January of this year. I had the most wonderful experience. The manageress Hilde was very professional, heart warming and served us the most wonderful breakfasts... More

We stayed at the Oak and Vine for 4 nights (booked for 8) earlier this month. We booked the Squirrels Cottage (self catering) because we were travelling with our baby and required cooking facilities. We were very disappointed with the accommodation. The "cottage" was tiny! It consisted of bed in one room with barely enough room around the bed for... More

This is a good guesthouse at reasonable price. Everything was as expected and the stay was hassle free. The breakfast was good, the room comfortable and the service efficient and friendly. I would stay there again.

I have been going to the Oak and Vine for a few years on regular trips to Cape Town. Many of its good qualities remain the same: a great location for exploring the city, the southern suburbs, the beaches, and also for heading east to Stellenbosch and points beyond. The house and cottages are Dutch colonial style, and are lovely.... More

I just wanted to say thank you so much for the night stay at the guesthouse in order for myself and my hubby to spend some quality time and celebrate our 6 year anniversary and 15 years together. The venue is absolutely stunning. It is extremely modern with a touch or 2 of ‘old school’…beautiful. The food prepared for us... More

The Oak and Vine is exactly the kind of place I would return to again and again. Tucked away in Newlands, it is just enough away from the bustle of central Cape Town to be relaxing but close enough that you can get wherever you want to go easily. The guest house is run by the wonderful and exuberant Hilde,... More

The Oak and vine guest house was an excellent base from which to explore the surrounding attractions and the perfect place to relax at the end of a day of sightseeing. The breathtaking rose garden encompassed in a circle in the driveway, the vines above the front porch, the fruit trees along the pool side, the picturesque park across the... More
