What a great place to stay while in Cape Town. The family treated us as one of their own and I look forward to staying there every time I visit. The breakfasts were amazing and given the odd times I had to leave for business on a daily basis, they were very accommodating. Right on the bus lines and a... More

We unfortunately only stayed here for one night but the accommodation was fantastic and very centrally located. We will definitely be back here when next in Cape-Town. Thank you for a really great stay.

We have just spent 3 days in Cape Town and are so pleased to have found Sandown Lodge. If you are looking for a quiet, tranquil end to a very busy day this is the place to be. Nothing like fresh crisp sheets and fluffy towels. Lovely and spacious and so clean. Thank you Vanessa for your warm, welcoming hospitality.... More

What a great find. A beautiful, spacious apartment and very warm welcome from Vanessa and her staff who looked after us brilliantly without being overbearing! We didn't spend much time in the apartment due to having a cram packed two weeks but it was a perfect base; great location with restaurants and shops within safe walking distance and very safe...

I was very fortunate to discover this amazing place to stay! Manicured gardens, stylish up to date accommodation and pleasant owners made this stay memorable. I had early starts every day and this more than provided for! I believe it is one of the finest accomodation options in Cape Town!

I recently stayed at the Sandown Lodge. The place is very nice, and nicely located close to University of Cape Town. I stayed in 2 rooms for my extended stay, and both were fine. There is laundry service available for ~$5 per (small) load. My one warning would be that you pay the full price upfront. I had the unfortunate... More

Our cancellation policy clearly states that if a booking is cancelled on the day of arrival or during the stay, the guest will be liable for the full booking fee. It is not easy for small establishments to fill rooms at short notice, especially during the quiet winter months. The guest did cancel the last 10 days of his stay... More

The accommodation is very highly recommended, it is neat, clean, modern, comfortable, accessible, moderately priced, great friendly service, wonderful surrounds.

After this stay I'll be looking at B&Bs more often as accommodation choice. Sandown Lodge was brilliant - very quaint grouds. It's situation in Rondebosch and an easy 10-15 minute drive to the airport and city. Close to a good shopping centre and many local tourist sites. The breakfast was fresh each day and the owners of the property were... More

“We asked for the room which has 2 separate rooms and is separate from the house. We preferred t be outside of the main house to allow us independence. If you have any preferences, let Vanessa know, but we didn't have any problems with the accommodation.”
