This guesthouse is wonderful, quiet yet still very close to restaurants, shops etc. The hostess Synnøve Skjelten is very service minded and welcomming, and she knows litteraly everything there is to know about Cape Town and the surrounding areas! Me and my family highly reccomend this wonderful guesthouse!
