The most stunning views and beautiful house with plunge pool on the terrace. A small, exclusive guest house with two guest rooms. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable with private terrace/balcony overlooking the sea. You can almost step into the ocean from there its all so close. Our hosts, Shalene and Gerhard, are utterly delightful and full of fascinating... More

Enjoyed everything! Very nice, helpful staff. Had problems with our rented car and everybody was helpful in calling up europcar etc. Wonderful, clean rooms, nice views and above all a really tasteful breakfast with fresh products, fruits, eggs, all kind of bread etc. The owner is also present and enjoys to make your stay a wonderful experience.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights during our holiday in South Africa and it was wonderful. The best place we stayed in the three week trip. From the warm welcome on arrival by the friendly staff, to the stunning accommodation and location, our stay was fantastic! We stayed in the South Room and it was pure luxury.... More

The combination of perfect service and a location to die for make this a very special place. The attention to detail is excellent and nothing is s too much trouble to Gideon and the whole team. It was a joy to be a guest and we can not wait to return.

Best view with excellent breakfast and perfect for relaxing. The rooms are very nice and modern equipped. Very friendly personal. One room with outdoor shower was a good idea. The other room would be a bit nicer with a greater window but we also could sit outside so it was ok for us. Also shark diving was a good recommendation.

We love staying here, everything is just perfect. The location is great, the rooms are great, the breakfasts are superb and the staff are just wonderful. They really can't do enough for you and look after you from the moment you arrive. It's very relaxing having breakfast (and the choice is endless) overlooking the ocean. There are a handful of...

We chose the Cliff Lodge to escape the holiday madness in Cape Town and we couldn't have picked a better spot. Amazing place with impeccable service and food. The rooms are fantastic. We stayed at the South Room, which had its own outdoor bathtub and 'partial' sea views, which in most hotels would be called sea views period. For the... More

We were recommended Cliff Lodge by guys who run at boutique B&B in Cape town and it didn't disappoint. The house and sea views are really as stunning in reality as on the website. The gem are the staff; all so happy and positive. Superbly led by Gideon (great advice on trips and even took me swimming in rock pool)... More

Not enough superlatives to describe how good this is....nothing is too much trouble for any of the staff. Let Gideon book your meals, local knowledge certainly pays off! Everyone was warm and welcoming from start to finish. we didn't find anything that wasn't top notch, so if you are looking to stay in the area...try it. Thanks to Gideon and... More
