A truly comfortable, clean, spacious apartment in a residential area of Cape Town. Not far from the mountain, this area has many cafes, restaurants and amenities within walking distance. We felt safe enough to walk around freely with three kids in the daytime, although we were more cautious in the evenings. It was quite chilly in September so we didn't...

Hi Travelling Wilko Thanks for this nice balanced review and sorry that I (Phil) didn't get a chance to meet you! We're pleased that you liked the area and the views over the fields and schools. It helps to have a feeling of space when you're staying in a city centre, especially with a family. We're sorry about Busby making...

We stayed 3 nights at Mountain Magic and we were amazed by the hospitality of Phil and Liz. They have been so useful and you never feel like you are bothering them. They made reservations in restaurants, called taxis for us, etc. The suite was big, with a living room and a kitchenette. The view over Cape Town was stunning....

Thanks WorldKri! So you got to experience both our offerings in one stay - and they both seemed to be what you were looking for. Parker Cottage and Mountain Magic are rather different places but we're glad you liked the size of the suite and the views here and enjoyed Parker too. About the pricing: we're keen to try to...

We stayed in the Palm Garden Suite for four nights while in Cape Town in August. We loved having a condo unit to spread out in and the option to make our own breakfasts. The location was excellent and we felt very safe. Liz was a wonderful host giving us many tips on where to eat and what to see....

The apartments at Magic Mountain are really fantastic. Ours was large, clean, nicely decorated and had it's own entrance so you have some privacy. I believe that all the apartments benefit from this. Liz & Phil, the owner / managers couldn't have been nicer, they gave us recommendations for everything we needed, booked tours, restaurants and let us leave a...

having had to visit cape t regularly over the past 18 months, MM is one of 3 places i have found to be worth a return visit. Tamboerskloof has to be the best area for anyone visiting cape t. MM is everything the website says it is and the hosts couldn't be more helpful.

I scoured Trip Advisor looking for a place to stay in Cape Town, and nothing sounded right… until I found this place. Perfect location right by Table Mountain and equidistant to city bowl and the beaches on the peninsula. In theory you can walk down to Kloof street and all the shops, but the walk back can be strenuous so...

Thanks very much, sinaasappelsap! This is a really nice review and we're very grateful for it. To answer your point about cash versus credit card, we do actually accept credit cards but for a surcharge of between 3% and 5%, which is what South African banks charge us. To be honest, most of our guests like to pay cash because...

We tried to contact PlanetTalk about this review without success - we have to say we're a little confused by it as some of the facts are inaccurate. The Mountain Magic Suite is on the ground floor, not a basement, and the views of Table Mountain are, to our mind and most guests, sensational, unless you count a tree in...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Mountain Magic Garden Suites are situated in a quiet residential area on a no-through road. Each suite is a large self-catering apartment and all have their own balcony or patio. We're very family friendly, as two suites have their own garden and all guests can use our large pool and the green field next door. We try to offer a private and relaxing base to explore Cape Town that gives families freedom but private guests privacy and space too. ... more   less
