A beautiful setting and comfortable guesthouse, loved the upstairs lounge and patio with great views! The service needs upgrading. We asked for the extra DSTV and WiFi in both rooms on Friday and had to remind the staff on saturday to do it. The staff is very noisy in the kitchen and we had to ask them to be quiet...

Sweetest guest house ocean view is a great choice. It is well located, close to the water and restaurants. The breakfasts are great and the staff is very helpful. The rooms are good size with nice bathrooms. There is a great lounge and deck area on the second floor for gatherings and relaxation.

Simply said, we regretted having booked another guesthouse for our second three nights in Sea Point after our roundtrip! It's not luxury, it's taste in food and furniture, with a self service bar and german Bierschinken, it's friendly staff and it's quiet. We enjoyed!

Our room was perfect and bathroom was perfect for our needs. The living area was very comfortable and homely. The deck had lovely views and breakfast was lovely. Easy walk to bus stops. The staff was friendly and helpful, but also respected our privacy. Thanks for a great stay!

It wasn't our first and won't be our last time there. All the staff are soo friendly and helpful. It's unbelievable. People, stop complaining and start experiencing the positive aspects of a guest house! Are you right at the beach? No. But it's just a five minute walk. You see the ocean? Yes you can. But what is it all...
