House on the hill is located in the heart of Greenpoint, in a small quiet street. It is 2 minutes walk away from Giovanni's, one of the best italian supermarket and coffee shop of Cape Town! 10-15 minutes walk away from the waterfront, and a few more minutes from the town center! Close to all amenities, with nice big rooms,... More

I stayed two nights in the second house (non-bed and breakfast) They were really patient since I had to make a few last minute changes and additions. They can also book a rental car or cab if you need it. Really good customer service Clean, spacious rooms

Spent 2 nights. Absolutely wonderful! Clean, quiet, good bed, nice size room (Room4) Had some good chats with my daughter over a lovely breakfast. Close to stadium, Waterfront and where we wanted to be. I have already decided that this is where we will be staying when we visit Cape Town again! Felt like home! Thanks to everyone at House...

Very nice place, whith nice staff and good conditions. On Cape Town center, Greeen Poin, is a very good option joining the quality and the price. The breakfast ist very nice, and the house staff gaves us the possibility to use the tables room at night to dinner.

Stayed for four nights at the beginning of Jan 2015. A really pleasant surprise. Lovely staff who stayed for a late check in (9pm). We ended up staying in room 2 (I think the one in the picture) and it was very nice. Comfortable bed, quiet. Good location for the V&A Waterfront, you can walk in 15 minutes. Free parking... More

Nice place on a quiet street, walking distance to the V&A Waterfront. Rooms were clean, breakfast okay. Owner a quiet guy, but friendly. We had our Capetown trip planned beforehand, so don't know how they did on arranging trips etcetera.

Right in the heart of the Mother City Cape Town! Walking distance from V&A waterfront and all shops. Friendly service, clean with everything you basically need (no aircon), couldn't want more for accommodation when you are out all day sight seeing. Great 3 bedroom house each with onsuite shower & toilet. Had a lovely stay! Thanks guys.

There's not much to say about the House on the Hill. It's comfortable, charming, and the staff are very friendly. On the other hand, we didn't have a nice view (of other people's laundry and backyard), and comparatively it's a bit expensive. For example, we paid much less for two nights at a luxurious place in Simon's Town--complete with a... More

This place is an absolute bargain - located in Greenpoint in a safe area within walking distance to the city centre and the waterfront. There's free WIFI (altho access was a bit tricky at times) and self catering facilities. We had our own room for the 3 of us and it had an en suite bathroom. Definitely a lot more... More
