This is a lovely guesthouse very close to the promenade so I was able to go running every morning along the ocean. And you can hear the ocean at night , which I love! The room I had was very spacious, nicely decorated and the bed was very comfortable. I also had a balcony facing the sea so that I... More

I have stayed at Enchanted twice over the past year. Leyla could not be more helpful or attentive. The balcony with a view of the Atlantic ocean is unsurpassed. Great daily walks or jogs along the beach front. Slightly away from the chaos of Sea Point. A piece of paradise. I cant wait for my next visit.

I stayed there twice and was absolutely "enchanted" by my stay. Leyla the manager makes her guests feeling at home and the staff is lovely. The rooms are lovely and spacious. The service is perfect. And the location also great. I would return in a heartbeat.

When I checked in to the Enchanted Guest House, I almost immediately regretted only having one night to spend there. Everyone was incredibly friendly and the room was great with a beautiful view from the balcony straight into Bantry Bay. I didn't have a car with me so I'm not sure if they have protected parking, but it was a... More

The guesthouse ticks all the basic boxes. Leyla and her team are very friendly. We were unfortunate in that one of the 6 rooms that we were in had a terrible smell which made it quite unpleasant. Be warned they do NOT serve bacon, but only Macon.

The staff really went out of the way to make sure my stay was lovely in every respect! It was really good value for money and in a fantastic location, close to all the hotspots of Cape Town, but in a quiet area. I could hear the waves from my bedroom and it was a half a minute walk to... More

Me and my brother we were invited for a trip to Kruger Park and Jo-burg area for a week and we decided to stay longer in SA and visit Cape Town. We chose the Guest house randomly, because it is close to the sea, it was free in the time we needed and the price was reasonable. We didn´t want... More

We are a minute walk away from Saunders Rock Beach on the Atlantic Sea Board of Cape Town and we also have Lions head protecting us from the South Easter when it blows. We are very close to Camps Bay and Clifton Beaches, the V & A Waterfront, the City Centre and the CTICC. Everything you need like shops, supermarket, bank, post office and restaurants are in walking distance. We are conveniently situated to explore the sights and sounds of Cape Town. This Victorian home has a calm and peaceful atmosphere "home away from home feeling", with a modern approach to hospitality and friendly staff. We have 8 elegantly furnished bedrooms which are spacious and most with a private patio or balcony with captivating sea or mountain views. Our Guesthouse and the outside area with plunge pool and braai facilities are the perfect place to relax and rejuvenate.
