Dirk and Patrick were helpful right from our initial contact, nothing was too... More

We stayed in CUBE's for 5 nights and had a wonderful time: - Dirk and Patrick as great hosts, who really care about making best out of our time - familiar atmosphere, as there are only 6 rooms - Greatest breakfast ever received in South Africa (including fresh, crispy bread :-)), eaten at a grand table together with other guests,...

Thank you Patrick and Dirk for your warm welcome and help to organise our stay in Cape Town! We felt like home with you, and your place is beautiful! Hopefully we'll come back some day... Kind regards, Maria & Philippe

We stayed at the Cube at the beginning of Dec 2013. Patrick and Dirk were excellant hosts who made our first stay in South Africa very smooth and stress free. As this was our first time, we were a bit nervous but having their prepaid mobile phone to use help us feel more relaxed when we were travelling around Cape... More

Stayed there for three nights, and really nothing to complaint about. The guys even made it possible for us to change rooms so we could move into the beautiful cottage at the pool. Moreover the two seem to read your mind and help you with reservations and tips around Houtbay and Capetown.

My fiance and I stayed 6 nights with Patrick and Dirk and their two wonderful dogs Mila and Paul, as part of a 2-week stay in the Cape Town area. Overall fantastic experience. Everything that's been said thus far can be echoed by us, including the brilliant idea of the guest pre-paid cell phone, which helped out immensely, the dinner... More

The first two weeks of November 2013 we stayed in the Cube guesthouse, and it was simply wonderful. The hosts were not only friendly and very helpful, but incredibly nice and caring. They provided us with amazing tips no tourist would ever find and made our stay an amazingly relaxing and unforgettable experience. The house itself was more than comfortable,... More

I usually prefer "my" Mandarin Orientals and Four Seasons ;-) Still, I decided to move into CUBE Guest House for a couple of nights during my visit to Cape Town. It was my first time Guest House experience and I didn't miss anything ;-) Of course, there is no bar or restaurant in the house (but you will have a... More

We were proud to be the first Australian guests at cube. Now that is out of the way let me tell you about Cape Town. Unless you are 20 and feel the need to drink yourselves silly in downtown cape town the best parts of the experience of south South Africa are found twenty minutes in every direction. One of... More
