We only stayed the one night, but would've loved to stay another , as we were so warmly welcomed and the view was just spectacular . This is an environment in which one can truly relax and the perfect 'mom and dad' getaway.

The service was warm and friendly, we had a spacious apartment, great view, and it was good value for money. Really appreciated the bath sheets! Only downside for me was where we had to park there is a section which is very steep, so our car got scraped underneath in front. Siphe, RSA

The apartment was great too with nice furniture and decor, a comfortable bed and good kitchen/bathroom facilities. Other highlights included the delicious... More

Since we were on a two-week drive to Cape Town, it was nice to cook our own food on the BBQ. The kitchen was well equipped with the necessities. The beautiful house overlooks the canals... More

Unfortunately Louise was away on urgent "GrandMothers" duties, but Alan coped admirable as temporary CEO. We always book the same suite which is spacious and extremely well appointed consisting of large bedroom, full bathroom (bath & separate... More

Very neat and clean. Friendly hosts. 4 Star Tourism Grading accurate. The location is easy to find and views over the marina are great. One item that could be included is an iron and ironing board. Great stay
