Carmichael guest house is very safe for a solo woman traveller in Cape Town, with a home to home experience. I really appreciated the hospitality of the staff. This guest house will be definitely my first choice for my next visit in Cape Town

We had a wonderful overnight stay at Carmichael House. Warm welcome, luxurious Victorian room, peaceful garden with lots of birds and a delicious breakfast. Close to all the excellent restaurants in Rondebosch, Newlands and Claremont. We can highly recommend it for a short or longer stay.

The hosts are very welcoming and available to give you advises on what to do and where to go. The breakfast, served in a patio room overlooking the garden is very nice. This makes Carmichael an excellent...
