What a great stay in Houtbaai. It is not really in the centre, but that was only great for us, since we needed some peacefulness. There is a small pool and a jacuzzi in the garden and the lovely host is a very nice and warm lady. The guesthouse was very big with a two persons shower and the breakfast... More

A very comfortable cottage in beautiful surroundings, and an accommodating hostess who supplied us with excellent area info, made restaurant reservations on our behalf and served us delicious breakfasts on their patio. The consummate host! The 'Marseille' cottage was larger than we expected, with a lovely interior (perhaps too lux for us dusty trekkers, but all the more welcome) and... More

We thoroughly enjoyed a one night stay at Cap Serein. We only wished we had several nights to fully enjoy our private little cottage! The grounds are amazingly beautiful, quite and peaceful. The room was very clean and well appointed for a longer stay. The main room even has a fireplace for those chilly nights! Although, our favorite part was... More

Cap Serein Guest House is a beautifully situated, nice guest house. The rooms are spacious, and attached to it there is a beautiful bathroom, there is even a little fireplace which is really nice in the evenings. There is plenty of privacy. The hostess is really helpful and takes time to inform you about things to do in the surroundings.... More

We spent four nights at Cap Serein in the apartment Marseille and really loved it. Petra and Kurt are great hosts and they are very involved with their guests. A good breakfast buffet and the kind attention from Petra who's advices for daytrips are very useful. The apartment was tidy and clean, and even the fire place was provided every... More

Just to start with my conclusion: I will time and again return to Cap Serein whenever appropriate. Petra and Kurt are such lovely hosts. My Avignon room is spacious and immaculate. Breakfast is abundant, to the extent of me feeling obliged to put the break on: I would have overeaten, had I sampled all that was on offer. The top... More

If you care to venture a little off the beaten track of Hout Bay, staying here for a few days will introduce you to what has to be one of the best and most affordable accommodations that Cape Town's Atlantic Sea Board has to offer. Cap Serein has a lot going for it, especially the outstanding dedication you will see... More

Cap Serein, owned by Germans Kurt and Petra Schramm, has been the principal discovery of our (still ongoing) 2014 South African trip. We stayed in the Avignon apartment, and, boy, have we ever felt at home. Petra is the best host one could think of: friendly, with true interest for her guests and lots of attention for detail. Her husband,... More
