Great place with a tranquil atmosphere and an amazing view. The food especially was magnificent. Petra took special care to accommodate our children and they thoroughly enjoyed to feed the fish every morning.

Very comfortable room, great location and beautiful view. Most important: great host! you feel like being in southern France as far as the architecture and colors of the building are concerned but at the same time at the southern tip of Africa!

Only about 20 min. drive to the center of Cape Town, in the hills of Hout Bay, is the Bed & Breakfast ‘Cap Serein’. From the terrace you have a sea view, it is a quiet place. Hosts Petra and Kurt provide a great breakfast,...More

About
Description
High on the mountain slopes overlooking the fishing port of Hout Bay, the only noise you’ll encounter here is chirping birds and the occasional splash from the koi ponds. Recently restored in the style of Provence, ...More Cap Serein is about peace, quiet and exceptional cuisine. Each spacious suite and cottage at Cap Serein comes with a Satellite TV, tea/coffee facilities and a private patio. They either overlook the Atlantic, the mountains or the guest house’s gardens. Expect superb breakfasts in our sunroom, with cooked fare and a selection of home-baked pastries. You can also see Kurt’s dinner menu and decide if you’d like to stay in for the evening. We have options for everyone; ranging from three-course meals to a simple snack to end the day. After a dip in the pool, guest can relax on the sun terrace or enjoy a night in our jacuzzi.The shady garden is full of nooks and crannies, with plenty of corners where you can lose yourself in a good book or simply relax under Cape Town's sun.
