Great central location above Haut Bay. Andreas, (the owners son) was super friendly and a wealth of information, he directed us to the best restaurant in the area and told us how to get in despite it being booked solid. We felt special from the start. The bed was the best of our month long visit exploring the " Garden... More

After a month in Africa the stay here was peaceful quiet safe and an incredible view. We felt like we were in Europe in the rooms with individual duvets on the most comfortable bed! Breakfast was first class as is the hotel. Hout Bay is the perfect place to launch and see the city center and all the beaches surrounding... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and we enjoyed our stay as the owner's son was super friendly and spoke fluent English. If it wasn't for him being there, I doubt the owner would have spoken to us as we hardly saw her. Breakfast was good, the view was ok. It is close to shops. There is good security at... More

Dear GadgetGir1, Your review really surprised me! I enjoyed taking care of your needs and our team thought I did a good job. As a result the owner did not see the necessity of having a second person look after you. It is also doubtful that she would have been able to add to our good natured discussions on the... More

We stayed here in February 2010 for two nights immediately upon arriving in Cape Town. On our second night we were woken in our beds by two robbers armed with knives. We were not harmed but terrified. They stole our wallets, camera and some other belongings. Although we had accidentally forgotten to lock the patio door the robbers had managed... More

We stayed in march for 4 nights and booked the apartment, which is on the parking level and therefore a little bit dark. Service was OK, but no honesty bar in the room and no welcome drinks. The pool is in the shade after 3 p.m. and only one sun umbrella is available.
