Marco and Vincent couldn't have been better hosts. From the most incredible breakfast to helpful tips, and activity planning our stay in CT was wonderful. The B&B is well located and an oasis where we could come back from our busy day and relax. Such a nice addition to our vacation that left us with the desire to return. Close... More

Marco was a fantastic host and Vincent cooks a mean breakfast! Villa Belle Ombre (VBO) was a perfect shady spot in a great 'boutique' area of CT away from the hustle and bustle of down town and tourists along the waterfront. Close to little cafes and shops whilst at the foot of Table Mountain, the location of VBO was perfect... More

They also do a good deal on car hire, which we used to explore the... More

Quiet and nice location, and the French owner as well as GM are very pleasant, providing a high Level of individual service. Excellent linen/beds. Small sun-terrace and pool, great for a little dip. Some noise early in the morning though, when the guest house comes "to life".

We stayed here while visiting cape town. The building does have a certain charm. However our room, although it had a high ceiling, felt very cramped. It was also very stuffy despite the nice win outside. There was no air conditioning, as this was our first time to the Cape, I dont know if this is normal . We did... More
