This has to be one of the most beautiful guesthouses that we have stayed in. The setting is beautiful. There is the most amazing view from the balcony. Camps Bay seems to be a wealthy suburb.

There is also a very cold swimmingpool which is very refreshing after a long flight. The breakfast was very tasty and gave us energy for... More

The views across Camps Bay from the balcony were incredible. Such a relaxing place to stay and the owners made us welcome from the moment we arrived. Nothing is too much trouble for them and we felt as if we were staying with friends. Breakfasts on the veranda set us up for the day ahead and the rooms were spacious... More

Spent a wonderful five days with Fanie and Jeanette. It was like home from home, they were so welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble.

Our group took three rooms including the penthouse at this wonderful spot. The owners, Fanie and Jeanette took care of us in every way. Great breakfasts, beautiful pool, great views. Only thing missing was a hot tub. We would definitely come back.
