My husband and I have stayed at Sun Cottage twice over a two year period for up to two weeks at a time. We have stayed in both the River Room and the Loft Room and could not recommend them both highly enough! The second visit was with my parents and 9 month old daughter and our hosts catered for...

We absolutely loved our stay at Sun cottage, we booked the river room which is so quaint and romantic for a couple who want a peaceful break and down time. The room was larger than most hotel rooms and the bathroom was always well serviced every day. I loved that the products were not cheap mass produced toiletries. The breakfast... More

We recently spent a few days in Cape Town and thoroughly enjoyed staying at Sun Cottage. We were warmly welcomed by the charming hosts and showed to the Loft suite which is a fabulous room with a thatch roof, Cape Dutch style and extremely comfortable. Shops and restaurants are within walking distance as are the foothills of Table Mountain. Very... More

Sun Cottage Loft Room is my ideal space to use when visiting Cape Town. It offers stylish comfort and privacy as well as a peaceful exterior of a small forest and mountain stream providing the sense of being away from the rush of the city. The city is however close enough to reach your business or leisure purposes.

We totally loved our stay at Sun cottage! It was a home away from home. It's a beautiful setting and very conveniently located. The loft room was perfect for our needs and the hosts, Jean & Mike, were so friendly and hospitable. They made us feel very comfortable and even let us use their lovely garden when we needed to...

Stayed there for a week with the family and used both rooms. The cottage is comfortable, clean and well equipped. The owners live in the same house, though we hardly saw them. The rooms were cleaned daily, the beds were comfortable, the towels and bed linen were of good quality. There are basic cooking facilities which we did not use.... More

We visited Australia recently for a relative's wedding and needed a spot close to where family live. Staying at Sun Cottage was like being at home - cosy, peaceful and topped by a very beautiful, leafy location. We have two children who just loved all that nature offers in the beautiful, vast garden that stretches down to the water. Ziggy,... More
