I really like how this accomodation was based in one large-ish building. several vistors at the same time depending the time of year obviously. I really love the friendly owners and the breakfast was very nice. We staying in the suite and it was very cosy and we had lots of privacy.

Location is average, some things are in walking distance, but at night a car or a taxi is definitely needed. We were given the appartment, which is located on the top floor and very spacious. Facilities are outdated though (old furniture, separate warm/cold tap - very annoying!), there is nothing much to get you started (except for some tea), towels... More

If you like getting out of the hustle and bustle of the Central City this is your place. Hout Bay is a beautiful spot and convenient to downtown Cape Town, as all points south (Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope) as well as the Cape Wine areas. The B&B itself is a lovely house that is nicely appointed.... More

Bright water Lodge is an old-fashioned style of b&b. It's main drawback is that although the house is large there are no outside areas to relax in - no balconies or verandah and although the hosts said we could sit in the (very small) patio area it was obvious later that day that they used the area privately for themselves....

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

We know Cape Town quite well and didn't really needed to be advised on where to go and what to see and do. But the great warm welcome from the hosts who asked about our day every day and got excited with us like they also saw Cape Town for the first time in a year was such a lovely... More
