Loved our room with the terrace - I'll have the same one when we return. Great location, clean, light and airy, and very pleasant. I found it very good value for money and very much enjoyed the city views and view of Signal Hill and Bo Kaap itself.

We stayed for 2 nights in this comfortable apartment. We had the upstairs so were able to access the roof and watch the sun go down. Adequate breakfast and we were invited to cook an evening meal or bring in a takeaway if we wanted. We never saw the other guests staying there. Quiet area but wouldn't walk around alone... More

It's so good to hear your very short 2 night stay was such a pleasure. We also think we have 3 small cozy guest houses geared to individuals and not your run of the mill tourist. The Bo-Kaap is a unique area in central Cape Town close to everything. We hope you will be back. Kind regards, Daniel, Edward &... More

We only stayed one night. We arrived late (Bruce arranged for transfer from the airport). Room was impecable, very comfortable. Breakfast was compleet and Bruce very friendly with good advices on where to go. It is a perfect place and location to explore Cape Town and surroundings from.

Tasteful and clean interiors, delicious homemade muffins and gracious staff. There was a great selection of basic breakfast foods ready for you to prepare yourself. Bruce and his were very welcoming when we arrived and kindly led us to our room.
