We stayed with our 3 year old in the self-catering apartment. Pleased with the space and the private deck outside. Lovely place, very nice owners and well situated to explore Cape town and surroundings. We would really recommend this place!

We are glad we stayed at Brightwater Lodge. We stayed in the upper level elf-catering apartment and were very pleased with the space. My wife and I and our adult daughter were very comfortable for four nights. We enjoyed the nice private deck outside of the living room area. Also, lots of storage, allowing for hanging clothes and eliminating clutter.... More

This is a lovely place to stay and very good value for money. My husband and I stayed for 8 nights and don't want to go home! The breakfast is great and suitable for a variety of tastes, including those with special diets. The hosts are very friendly and helpful.

Erica is a lovely and helpful host. Everyday she gave us advice which was much appreciated. Not sure if Gerard has the same flair for the role of host!it's a pity the property didn't have sufficient garden to enable guests to soak up the sun.
