Reviewed February 23, 2013

Gary and family and the staff makes you feel at home at this cozy guesthouse with superb location in the wind still area of Fresnaye within walking distance to the vibrant Sea Point area, the boardwalk and minutes by car from the great beaches Camps Bay, Clifton etc and the city.
Rooms are nicely decored and clean, choose how you want your breakfast cooked, enjoy the nice veranda in the evening or take a swim in the pool and enjoy the sunbeds when not out and about.
I keep coming back to this place. Feels like being at home.

We have been at Sundown Manor twice and it has been a pleasure to stay there. The guest house is situated in a calm and nice area near the the Beach Road, the rooms are comfortably, the breakfirst buffé is great and the staff is very helpful. Next time we visit Cape town Sundown Manor will be our choice.

We spent two days at Sundown Manor on the way to Namibia on business. I can't imagine having chosen a better place. It was close enough to the waterfront so that we could walk each evening for the sunsets, yet was quiet and very comfortable. Everyone we dealt with was very helpful and friendly. We didn't need many of the many facilities available, but everything we needed was available and worked -- not a given, as we learned at some of the other places we stayed later on.
We could recommend the guest house to anyone visiting Capetown who wants a quiet and well-run place to stay whether on holiday or on business.

My husband and I enjoyed a thoroughly delightful week at Sundown Manor with Gary and his staff. Nothing was too much trouble. He even located a chiropractor for me on Boxing Day when all chiropractic offices were closed! The new room upstairs was spacious and light with good ventilation, the pool was frequently used for a cooling-off dip, and the breakfasts were excellent.
It is easy to meet other travelers and exchange tips during breakfast on the terrace. You can walk to several beaches and the strand promenade within minutes. All in all, a very positive start to our holiday.

We visited Sundown Manor in November at the very start of our 3 wks travelling in SA. Gary has a beautiful house and he and Daniella make you very welcome. Nothing is a bother to them. The rooms are 1st class - spacious and very clean. Honesty bar which came in very handy after long trip from UK. We felt very safe in Fresnaye and would recommend Sundown Manor to start off your holiday. Very handy for trips to Waterfront. I was very concerned about going out in the evening in SA however on our first night in Fresnaye I truly relaxed - no problems at all. Would recommend Sundown Manor for short or long stay - ideal location. Eleanor and Gordon Scotland

Myself and my daughter had a wonderful stay at Sundown Manor. Gary, the host and their staff received us very friendly and we immediately felt at home. It is wonderful suitated and you are within minutes from the city centre and main attractions like the Cape Town Convention Centre and the Waterfront. I also enjoyed the quiteness of the particular area and will recommend this to anyone that wish to spend some time in the beautiful Cape.

Situated in a safe locationmand good private parking available for vehicles.The breakfast was always hot and prepared fresh.The lodge was very clean and breakfast are was set up well.Located very near the beach and close to a variety of restuarants in the area, Convient to travel to all attractions in Cape Town as minibus taxi and bus route just 500 metres away.
