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

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 :)

We stayed for 5 days during October in Cap Serein and were impressed by the relaxed atmosphere, the beautiful gardens and the friendly and helpful hosts. 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
