“Fantastic place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2012

I have travelled quite a lot and never been so impressed by a guesthouse. This place so far exceeds what you would usually expect of a guesthouse I would go back tomorrow. The location is superb with views over the ocean that is only about 100 metres away. The rooms and common areas are very tastefully decorated with lots of white linen and bare wood and the whole place has an air of tranquility. Breakfasts are a real treat here too as you have a great selection to choose from and finally the staff were very very helpful and could,nt do enough for us.

What a lovely place! ‎

‎Travelled as a couple, stayed for 3 nights in April 2012. Didn’t want to leave. ‎
We stayed in room 1 (with sea view) for two nights, and room 2 for one night. Both rooms are very charming, each with its own benefits. It took some time to get used to single duvets, but it makes ‎sense if you are not travelling as a couple. Lovely Linda was very helpful, both upon hotel booking ‎and with all the tips, directions and recommendations. ‎

Things we liked:‎

‎-‎ Fresh coffee in bed, not a cold wake-up call.‎
‎-‎ Fantastically tasty, mostly organic and free range produce breakfast. ‎
‎-‎ Charming, rustic bedrooms with great views. ‎
‎-‎ Location: it was such a treat to be so close to the sea.‎
‎-‎ Shireen, one of the owners, is an excellent manager and it was lovely to meet her. ‎
‎-‎ The atmosphere:it felt a little bit like visiting your own summerhouse. ‎

We'll come and stay again.

To be honest when we saw our bedroom we were a little disappointed. Windows that did not close properly, old furniture etc.For us it was more like a really great hostel. It has that type of vibe. The common areas are nice and the view from the terrace is wonderful. What made it all worthwhile was the excellent breakfast and the friendly staff. I would certainly stay here again but just be aware that you would not describe the accomodation as luxurious. We also ate at the Harbour House Restaurant and it was excellent

Our group of 10 peeled off from our Tanzania Safari group and headed to So. Africa for a week. Our research for accomodations centered on the fact that we didn't want to stay in a highrise hotel in the city of Capetown. We discovered the Chartfield website and explored the possibility of staying in the small village of Kalks Bay and were delighted that we could accomplish all our sightseeing goals from there. Florian and his staff took such good care of us and were very helpful in educating us on our travel options: from taking the train and touring Capetown, to hiring a driver to take us to the wine regions and Cape Poiht. Our rooms had a view of the sea and were nicely appointed with cozy duvets and cappucinos delivered in the morning. The Chartfield is a short walk from the charming town and train station and we found great shops, wonderful restaurants and bakeries. Don't miss breakfast on the patio overlooking the pool and be sure to try the Special Scrambled eggs with truffle oil and parmsean........Fantastic!!!

A beautiful guesthouse with amazing friendly service, wonderful location and delicious breakfasts. The owners really go beyond what is expected of them. I would definitely recommend this place.

Room Tip: Book the roof room overlooking the ocean.
