Bathroom never cleaned. Hair from previous guest present in bathroom throughout my stay. Leaking toilet never mopped throughout my stay. Room never vacuumed once. Evidence of paper on the floor from when we arrived. Linen not changed throughout four nights. Room and bathroom never smelt fresh throughout.

What a wonderful time I had! Maryanne is a gracious hostess and she made sure that we were as comfortable as possible and spoiled us with her lovely breakfasts and tea at night. I would really recommend this guest house!

I was received very friendly. The guesthouse is welcoming, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was excellent. I would certainly go back there again. There should however be local TV Channels available such as SABC2 and 3 so that one can see local news and series.

My husband and i enjoyed staying at The Beach house and we are planning our 2nd visit to the guest house. It was neat, the breakfast was delicious. Maryann was super friendly and talkative and she made us feel at home.

I was freezing the first night. Could find no staff or extra blankets. The safe needed new batteries - Chinese guy sat in front of the tv all day - changed rooms and there was a huge dead cockroach and unclean sheets. Supposed to stay for three nights - left after the first night

My sister stayed at the Beach House for two weeks. She told me how friendly the staff were. We found this to be the case and the price was very reasonable and plenty of secure parking. Would recommend for the price!

We stayed in 2 different rooms because there was no availability in one for the 4 days that we were in Hout Bay, but that did not deter us because it offered us the opportunity to know what we would prefer the next time we would stay. Conclusion is that as lovely as Suite 8 is on the deck, the... More

This was our first South African B&B experience and we were impressed. MaryAnn welcomed us well and was very helpful with getting us situated. We had a room on the outside, lower area. The room was comfy and clean. We did not mind that it was cozy, the value for the low price was already amazing. The place is surrounded... More

Spent a few nights at this lovely little bay which was a good base to explore the Cape. The guest house and staff were lovely. I really enjoyed the continental breakfast. Due to distance from Cape Town you really need your own transport although there is the option of the Myciti bus. (Thanks to Maryann for helping sort out transport... More
