The best guest house I ever stayed in! However, I struggled to find it as the street numbers are mixed up, and the guest house is not clearly signposted. Turn in from the main road and follow the road when it turns sharply left. It looks like a dead-end, but it's not. Follow the cobbled road on the right until it ends in steps going up the hill. The guest house is on your left. Wonderful views, great breakfast! I was upgraded to the stunning honeymoon suite, as it was open. Don't forget to go for a walk at Muizenberg beach with the brightly coloured huts on the beach!

We were in the Honeymoon Suite so if this is the top room then it does not say much. There is only one bedside lamp. No kettle/tea/coffee in the room. You have to go downstairs for that. No TV, you have to go to a pokey room downstairs for that. The place relies on the view, which is OK. We actually rated it 2 stars. It is at the foot of the Sandhurst Rd steps, 272 steps up to Boyes Drive. 41 steps from the car to a top floor room, so don't go there with a weak heart :-). Well situated for St James pool and a healthy walk to Dalebrook and Kalk Bay where most of the action is.

We loved the vintage house with unchanged architectural details and a contemporary African art collection. We also loved the amazing breakfast Yoliswa prepared for us and her friendly welcome. The house is in a quiet, pretty cul de sac and just a few minutes walk from the beach. Once can also easily walk to Muizenberg and Kalk Bay.

Very conveniently situated, unusual African-styled decor in a lovely old house, very pleasant and helpful staff. Comfortable bed with electric blanket if needed. Off street parking. Breakfast was good and on time. Just a few small things I would suggest as improvements. Overall a very pleasant stay.
