Our room was spacious, immaculately clean and well equipped. The real stars are the lovely hosts, Tom and Johane. They are... More

What a fantastic place! Hosts Tom and Jo were wonderful, really helpful with ideas for places to go/eat. Best ever breakfasts and best swimming pool of all the places we stayed in the Western Cape. Beautiful views of Camps Bay and mountains behind. Would thoroughly recommend staying here.
