We stayed at the guest house for the very first time, looking for a guest house with easy access to the airport.  The guest house was great in other aspects as well! We had a lovely room, the pool area was great and around 7 in the morning the hospitable owner organized an excellent breakfast. Simply a great guest house!

What a delightful apartment in leafy Pinelands - a suburb of Cape Town we had never visited before! Easy access from the airport and to the Waterfront and town meant that 51 Forest Drive was perfect for our stay - we just wish we had had longer! Bedrooms and bathrooms were great, breakfast delicious and the staff friendly and courteous....
