The whole experience was awesome - homely, peaceful and absolutely beautiful surroundings, wonderful people, good food.. This is what makes a "home away from home" You will definitely see more of me .

It is definitely not a 4 star rating guesthouse. The animals were lovely, but we did not see any management or owner on site the whole of the weekend. The room was not clean and the quality of the towels were very bad. Florence made us a lovely breakfast.

Beautiful place to stay, very friendly and nice staff. I had very clean and spacious garden room with a comfortable bath room. Only minus is that there a lot of animals in the garden (dog, cat) which does not allow you to open the garden door, otherwise I would have get visiters!! This is pitty.

we did not know exactly what expect - we booked based on the website. what we so loved: the friendliness of the owner and the staff, the new bathroom, and the tidiness all over. the service was great, more than ever expected - and for the first time in over 1,5 years we could enjoy superb german sausages again! wonderful...

From the moment you step over the threshold of Southern Light Guest House you are greeted with a warm, homely and comforting ambience. I was booked to stay for 10 days and ended up staying 21 days, and that says it all. Maxi and her staff worked tirelessly to make my stay pleasant and nothing was too much trouble for... More

The Country house is set at a beautiful venue. I was cold the whole night because the bed doesn't have a duvet big enough for the bed. The bedding needs to be replaced and be suitable for the bed in the room. The breakfast should also be a full buffet like most other places of a similar stature, the ladies... More

We stayed here during Two Oceans 2014. Situated close to the start, and also close to a scenic part of the route, which suited us very nicely. Clean and comfortable facilities, friendly staff, great omelette for breakfast! Conveniently located for a visit to Kirstenbosch, Newlands Rugby stadium, Cavendish Square and also Constantia villiage shopping centre. Lovely patio overlooking the gardens... More

Host was amazing staff were wonderful and the overall stay was amazing. The rooms are beautiful and so are the grounds and the facilities. I would recommend this Country House to anyone who would love a sun filled and pleasant stay in Cape Town.

This was my first stay at Southern Light and I was very pleased. Maxi, the proprietor, was always at the ready to attend to my every request. My breakfasts, prepared daily by Florence, were always to my liking. The peaceful surroundings were very restful and the room was comfortable and clean. Very happy with the entire experience!
