Now and again you come across an exception to the norm, this is just that. A welcoming and genuinely comfortable place where no effort is spared to ensure the guests satisfaction. Breakfast is delicious and a range of beverages available on a 24 hr basis. All the staff and the owner are genuinely nice people. We stayed when passing through... More

We had a lovely stay at the Head South Lodge in mid January, 2016. Our room was clean and modern, with a balcony and view of the ocean (not that we spent much time taking advantage of these amenities). The location is a bit removed from the center of town, but it's easy and cheap to Uber to and from... More

We stayed at the Head South lodge for six nights, while renting a car to get around. There is not much within walking distance, though the staff is quite helpful if you need a taxi (which are cheap). We rented a car, and the staff were also helpful ensuring that we parked in good spots, when one wasn't available right... More

We had a fabulous time in Cape Town in April. The room was very spacious, comfortable and modern. The living room area, outdoor seating/pool area was lovely and relaxing and the honesty bar is a great idea and very well priced. Breakfast was also really good. The owners were so helpful, confirmed our tour, booked taxis and gave us lots... More
