The first and best place we stayed in all of South Africa. Johan & Lee are exceptional hosts in an amazingly quirky yet homely house. The food was devine and nothing wad ever too much trouble. I would go back to South Africa just to revisit The Chocolate House!

The chocolate house is in fact sweeter than it sounds. When you find people-loving people caring for you, everything will become easy. Nice and safe area, easy parking and public transportation, comfortable and clean rooms, fantastic breakfast, friendly people --- This is the place!

We stayed with Lee and Johan on our last days in Cape Town. Woodstock is not in the center of town, but incredibly well located as everything is pretty much a 5 - 10 min drive away. The room was lovely and the bed one of the most comfortable I have had on this trip! The tasty breakfast was prepared... More

Wow, I've stayed in many places in different parts of the world. The Chocolate House, by far exceeds in hospitality and uniqueness. You're in for a surprise, the moment you are warmly welcomed and greeted by the door by remarkable hosts, Johan and Lee not forgetting Versace, the immaculately groomed chocolate poodle. The first thing you notice is your personal... More

It is in Woodstock in an area with many lovely older houses, all build on the hilly streets sloping down to the sea. The chocolate house is indeed chocolate brown painted. When we arrive two very friendly men welcome us.... More

I have stayed with Johan and Lee more than once while working in Cape Town and every time it is a wonderful experience. They treat you like royalty. They make you feel at home. The Chocolate House is truly home from home for me.

Wonderful stay. People so nice & friendly. Delicious breakfast. Perfect situation (1 min from N2 to go to waterfront & down town = less than 10min), & 1 min from M3 (to go to cape point). Very clean. Enjoy! :)

There was a warm welcome with helpful recommendations for Capetown, perfect coffee when we came in too early during bad wheather. We were helped with getting started, with a tour Arrangement and perfect dinners cooked for us personally. The ambiente in the whole house was perfect.

We spent two nights at "The Chocolate House" and found ourselves treated like royalty by fantastic hosts Johan and Lee. It is well worth the experience to stop over and spend time with these fine people and great Bed and Breakfast. Compliments to them.
