Great pool area and outdoor area, with destinations, seriously such a styling boutique accommodation with just the right balance. But here is the kicker...... The staff!!

Good location, good service, very nice staff, rooms well furnished, excellent breakfast. What else would you ask for? Every time we come to Capetown this place is our home away from home. And we have recommended it to many friends who became regulars like us. Until our next visit!

We spent 6 nights and very much enjoyed our stay! The room was light, had a small veranda with view to the pool and we liked the well chosen furniture and its clean but comfortable style a lot! The location is quiet and yet perfect to explore Cape Town - we actually walked to the waterfront a couple of times.... More

The guest house is in a great location in Green Point, an easy 20 minute walk (or quick cab ride) to the Waterfront and very close to good restaurants at Seapoint. The common areas are absolutely lovely and a great place to relax at the end of a day's sight seeing. If the weather is nice, the breakfast tables are... More

Wonderful bed and breakfast with a breezy relaxed atmosphere, lovely breakfast, and very enthusiastic and helpful staff. Our room looked out into the beautiful garden, and had a shower with a view. Loved the relaxed background music in the lounge.

This is the perfect place if you want a nice clean and quiet... More
