Cap Serein, owned by Germans Kurt and Petra Schramm, has been the principal discovery of our (still ongoing) 2014 South African trip.

Cap Serein was a lovely experience with beautiful views, fantastic wheelchair accessibility, including a wet room. The hosts were absolutely lovely and prepared my friends and I the most delicious meals. Nothing was too much hassle. Thank you :)

Our guest house was a separate cottage with comfortable living room, large bedroom, well equipped bathroom and a wonderful well kept garden. Butterflies dance around the diverse blooming flowers and trees. A small paradise.... More

We had a great weekend. They are great hosts and go out of their way to make you feel welcome. They are also available to provide information and anything else you might need. She even offered to print our tickets we bought online. One thing that I noticed from most of the reviews is the scrumptious breakfast and that is... More

Thank you for the awesome hospitality. We stayed at Cap Serein with my newborn (our first holiday as a family). The owners were so accommodating! A camp cot next to my bed already set up awaited us upon arrival. They even had a little baby bath to bath my newborn in. My son fell asleep instantly after his bath! I... More

We stayed here for one night after my sister's wedding. It was really lovely and I would definitively recommend Cap Serein to any one who is looking for a little pampering. The owners were so accommodating and really made us feel at home. The rooms are lovely and the view exquisite! Thank you again for a lovely stay!
