We really enjoyed our 2 nights at Dunvegan Lodge. Sylvia and Peter are perfect hosts and we felt very much at home here. The Lodge nestles on the hillside looking across the valley towards Fish Hoek but has the major advantage of being well away from the busy and noisy main road. Directly above the lodge is the Silvermine Nature Reserve, giving great opportunities for balcony birdwatching. In fact it's a perfect base from which to explore the whole Cape peninsula, from Cape Point and Boulders Beach to Cape Town Waterfront or Table Mountain.
The 2-bedroom African Attic was ideal for the three of us - very spacious, comfortable and well-equipped for those who want to self-cater. We opted for cooked breakfasts which were lovely and gave us the opportunity to tap into Sylvia and Peter's extensive knowledge of the area, and be entertained by Jenna the talking golden retriever. There are lots of places to eat out in Kalk Bay (we enjoyed the eclectic Cape to Cuba) and Fish Hoek (we loved Bhandaris, probably the most authentic Indian food we have had outside India). Special mention too for the excellent secondhand bookshop in Fish Hoek which Sylvia recommended - a great place to stock up on reading material mid-trip.
Many thanks to Sylvia and Peter for making us feel so welcome (and to Beauty for doing our laundry). We would not hesitate to return.
