Mrs. Claudia and Mr. Marc said that they were new in the guesthousebusiness and that their experience was limited to 2 months. Their behavior during our stay was very professional, so Claudia and Marc learned very fast. The changes that were... More

Perfect safe location to explore both the vineyards and the superb beach at Strand. We stayed in the Buffalo suite. Very clean, spacious room with a kitchenette and the bonus of a wide, private balcony. New owner Mark is the perfect host. Hot breakfast cooked to order along with a wide variety of fresh, cold buffet items. Also a useful... More

Southern Cross is one of the best B&B's we have stayed in. The rooms were clean, spacious, comfortable. The breakfast was first rate. Mark, the new owner, was very friendly and helpful. The only negative point was not close enough to walk to stores or restaurants. You must have a car.

From reviews we were looking forward to our stay. Booked the loft room which looked great. Downstairs wet room smelled; upstairs bedroom dark and unwelcoming! Needs tlc! Gardens beautiful/area very safe.

The suite is under a thatch roof and it is quite normal that this African type of roof has an own smell especially after heavy rainfalls. The roof has been completely restored about 4 weeks ago. We cannot understand the dislike of... More

Patricia, the owner is a really nice person. She makes sure you have everthing you need. The rooms are very spacious, clean and with lovely views. It is perfectly located at 5 mins from the beach and at 10 mins from all the vineyards. The only little black spot is that there are only 4 tv channels working. THE ROOMS... More

We stayed for 4 nights and toured the whole region and cape town city. Perfect location with perfect place to come back after a long day out. The place has a beautifully setup that is very well maintained, the rooms are spacious and comfortable. Breakfast is great with verity of foods and drinks. Highly recommended.
