We were on a business trip, and it was great to have Marc and Claudia´s kindness and willingness to make us comfortable. The guest house is perfectly located. The rooms are... More

I recently stayed here twice, and every time Claudia & Marc really made me feel welcome. 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.

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 stayed in the Southern Cross Guesthouse for only one night, but form the beginning, with the kindly welcome, to the end, with the leave-taking, we enjoyed very much all the owners offered us. For sure the next time we will be in Cape Town. we will choose the Southern Cross Guesthouse. A fond memory from Dino and Rosanna from... More
