At the end of our holiday we wanted to relax a few days in Cape Town. We spent 5 nights at Huijs Haerlem and enjoyed every minute of it. A very relaxing atmosphere and friendly people. The Seapoint area is a quiet area of Cape Town and it's a good starting point to visit the highlights in the Cape Town... More

I stayed at Huijs Haerlem for four nights and I can say it was one of the best places I've stayed so far. I was looking for a place where I can relax like I am back home and it was the perfect place for that. It is walking distance to sea shore and the neighbor is very clean. Also... More

We stayed 2 nights here with our Norwegian friends, enjoyed every moment. The house and garden were beautifully laid out, breakfast by the pool, total luxury, the staff are so helpful, we felt totally relaxed. Very convenient to nice restaurants and for walking to Lion's Head which we did. We will be back.

Lonely Planet did well by us by including Huijs Haerlem in its list of accommodations in Sea Point. We'd go back to stay here in heartbeat -- in fact, we did. We were so impressed with this place after we stayed there in our first two days in South Africa that we booked a room there for our last night... More

I had a very nice time in Cape town and benefited greatly from all the help I received from the people from Huijs Haerlem in booking my day trips and all the other advice they gave me. I can recommend anyone to book a stay in Huijs Haerlem.

A very cozy bed and breakfast, well situated in Cape Town. As we were traveling in family with 3 couples, it gave us cozy places in the garden or inside to spend time together. Breakfast was delicious with great service and when nice weather, it is fun to eat on the terrace. The views are great looking over the ocean.

After an overnight bustrip from the wild-coast, this was exactly what we needed. It's not in the center, but perhaps that's for the better. The buses are easy and reliable (the owner of the guest-house will give you the card, check where you need to recharge it) and plenty of parking-space (if you rented your car). The rooms are luxuriously... More

The moment when entering through the garden front door is already magic. The only noise you hear from now own is running water from a small fountain. The garden is beautiful and the pool clean. My room (No. 5) was spacious, clean, very comfortable and had an amazing view over the ocean (even from the bed and the shower). The... More

The guest house is very beautiful. The breakfast was fantastic: very good selection of various breakfast items. The garden was lovely with an outstanding view to the sea. The staff was friendly and supportive!

Very nice garden and house furnishings. Alex and Johann were very friendly and helpful. Homemade breads at breakfast were delicious. Only negative was the stairs to get to the house and upstairs to the rooms.
