Hi, Joe (owner) and Lebo (house lady) really took care of me. As a single female traveler, I was nervous about Cape Town. Joe assisted me by booking three tours on my behalf. My room was the smallest in the house but it is closest to the front door. You get three keys. It's close to: - a whole lot... More

We stayed for 5 nights at Mountain View. The house is lovely and the hospitality could not have been better. Joe helped us with directions, dining suggestions and daily plans. It made our time in Cape Town relaxing and that much more special. I hope to get back to Cape Town one day and will stay here again for sure!

The Mountainview Spa and Guesthouse is a wonderful place to stay if you want a romantic holiday in Cape Town. A very cosy place, great breakfast and sympathetic and helpful owner. It is just a stone's throw away from the beach. Near city and Waterfront. Excellent public transport almost in front of the door!!! We can highly recommend it.

Stayed at the Mountview for 1 full week and enjoyed every single moment. The staff is very friendly and extremely helpful. Moreover, the breakfast that is served is delicous and everything looks spotless. I am absolutely convinced that this is the best value for money that you can find in and around Cape Town.

We stayed at Mountview for one night in between our travels from Cape Town to Durban. We arrived late and followed the very clear instructions on how to enter the property since it was after hours. I told my husband I felt like a queen because everything was so nice, including our name on our bedroom door so we knew... More

Gorgeous B&B on High Level road in Sea Point. Only a quick 5min drive from the waterfront and 10-15min drive from Camps Bay. Arriving you'll meet JOE the owner, a great guy, who will help you get settled in. Passing the swimming pool with sun deck , outdoor table & Jacuzzi, you'll enter an oasis of peace & calm. Lebo...

Nice rooms, good breakfast, loved the decor of the place. The service was excellent. Everyone working there was very nice. Great tips and information from Joe on what to see and where to eat. We appreciated the pool area as it was nice to cool down in the heat and to enjoy some sun.
