MY daughter and I loved every moment of our weekend stay here.It is very well run. The owners, Peter and Marion ( and Jacky the dog) have gone to a lot of trouble to make everything extremely welcoming,it was a real home from home in an idyllic setting with views over the bay. I highly recommend a stay here. You... More

Very cozy environment and nice Peter and Marion. Rooms are fantastic for couples and families, you really feel like home there. Breakfast is very good and homelike too, and usually hosts come to breakfast for a nice friendly talk and you can learn some travel tips from them as they live in Cape town for long.

Stayed here for 4 days in the bridal suite. Lovely rooms, bridal suite had view over the bay. Guest house is directly under Table Mountain with great views. Run by a very pleasant German couple who do their best to make their guests feel comfortable and help with tips for trips and restaurant bookings. Great breakfast.
