As a frequent traveller and staying in Guest Houses rather often, it is easy to determine which ones are good and which are terrible. And Souther Cross is by far a great stay. Even, being a Brazil fan, if Brazil do loose against Germany... More

Great stay at a beautiful location. Owners were always helpful and friendly, the guesthouse is in a central location between Gordon's Bay and Stellenbosch and the atmosphere was relaxed and comfortable. Thanks so much for making the start of our holiday an enjoyable one.Kyall & Bryanna

We found the Southern Cross late at the afternoon, just before the latest checkin time. But it seemed the owners were waiting on us the whole day. Everything was perfect, the rooms, pool, excellent breakfast with fresh fruits and homemade bread and jelly. After one day travelling in another area we came back for 2 additional nights right at the... More

The owners were wonderful, very friendly and willing to help at all times. I highly recommend the Africa room as it's design was very different but made for a peaceful stay. Thank you both from Matt & Emma (UK&HK)

We were only there for one night but had a warm welcome from a lovely couple. The whole house has got this holiday and relaxed atmosphere. Our bedroom, newly decorated, had a sea view and was very comfortable and extremely clean. Breakfast was also very nice and the fresh bread was delicious ! We will definitely be back again!

We injoyed our stay very much, because claudia and marc were very kind and tried to make all wishes of us to come true. The room we had was very nice large enough and very quiet. The pool was beautiful:A LITTLE bit cold but refreshing because it was very hot during our stay.
