Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 5, 2014

Nice and safe neighbouhood, Friendly owner and staff. Clean rooms with strong wifi strength.
Located at the foot of the table mountain and a perfect view of the see on the other side.
Maartens offers great help in places to visit and in what order, he also helped me book the table mountain cable online and drove me there personally.

Excellent guesthouse in every way. The owner makes you feel like you are at home. He really takes care of you en gives you the information you need for an excellent stay. The guesthouse lies in a safe area not. far from the Ocean.

Maarten is the best host you can wish. perfect stay, and he has humor.
the best breakfast ever. clean, clean,clean. He asks you wat you want and you will get it. no question is to much for him. He tells you everything that you want to know and more. Gives you advise for trips in Cape Town. Do you want any advise for trips out of the region, he knows the answer.

We stayed at Maartens, beautiful accomodation, good rest in quiet surrounding. Maarten is a great guy with great tips to visit Capetown.
Beds were excellent! Rooms very clean. A beautiful walk from accomodation towards Waterfront along the shore.

My wife and I stayed for three nights and wish it was longer. This cute guest house has a great location, beautiful views, and wonderful staff. Maarten and staff were excellent, and went out of their way to accommodate us. We felt like we we're home while we were here. We would highly recommend staying here, and would love to come back some day.

Imagine: landing late at CTA, the 'warm welcome' by immigration people, queuing for Europcar and then driving in the middle of the night to Maarten's Guesthouse. The moment the gate opens you really feel home, while emptying the fridge and enjoying the superb view over the Ocean. Maarten & Philip really give you the feeling of coming home. Very relaxing. The staff is friendly, the breakfast - outside - is delicious and Maarten gives you excellent advice what to do in CT. Philip is his side-kick and with his SA sense of humor he kicks the day off. I really can recommend this place.

Maarten went out of his way to help us organise our activities after we found ourselves a day short in Cape Town following a delayed flight. Fresnaye is a lovely, safe neighbourhood and Maarten's Guesthouse is highly recommended. Looking forward to a longer stay next time!
