Great room, very clean and spacious with nice view of the comings and goings of the Kalk Bay harbour. Easy access - Costa accommodated my late arrival without issue. Enjoyed my stay and will be back to enjoy more of the Kalk bay vibe.

What stands out is that this place is secure and safe. To be welcome by Costa himself and someone who was always available was another thing that I liked. For the price this is the best in the locality and I highly recommend it.

I stayed here briefly but would definitely stay again. The owner was always courteous and flexible in all my dealings with him .. and I changed plans a number of times. I was there in September and it was cold. Despite the radiator I never really managed to warm up the room and the lighting is very harsh and a... More

A group of girls spent a lovely night at Kalk Bay Guest House. Costa is welcoming and very helpful and the rooms are cheerful and comfy with lovely views of the sea and harbour. It's a quick walk to loads of great local restaurants and we also enjoyed a great show at the local theatre.

Costa is a friendly and unobtrusive host. The guesthouse and rooms are spotless. Great location in Kalk Bay close to the hub of activity but far enough away to be quiet. The breakfast was adequate but filter coffee would be a welcome addition.

We stayed for about 13 nights - just bed - room so clean and tidy (every day) - Costa and Ashleigh were so welcoming and everything was no trouble to them. Our balcony gave us beautiful views of the sea and the harbour. Would return anytime!
