“A Luxury Home away from Home”
Reviewed July 17, 2006

To truly experience Cape Town you must stay with Jorg at his super cool and comfortable guest house. We spent four nights surrounded by Table Mountain, The Twelve Apostles, the blue sea and sky. Enjoy breakfast with a cooling morning breeze on the terrace, sight-see all day and then return to plunge in the pool with a cocktail for sun-down. Jorg will host you in style.

Having stayed at this Guest House for three years straight, I will definitely go back again in the coming season. I am glad that it now has a website that shows what makes it special. A real differentiator is that the owner loves what he does - pleasing his guests, proud to share his recommendations and love for the Cape. He takes time to attend and listen to his guests as much as he allows for total privacy.

We love the location because it has fabulous views to mountains and the sea (seaview from all rooms I think) - and, important in Cape Town - because it is located in one of the less storm prone parts of the hills (most people dont know that in some parts of the Camps Bay / hill area a pretty terrace or balcony can turn into stormy nightmares). The views makes one feel totally connected with the surrounding, without the need to go fighting for a place in the sun at the beach.. very useful particulalry on a rainy day, when one can witness the sea and wheather straight from the bed or bathtub.

The rooms are large, clean and have very, very comfortable bedding that feels more like the Ritz Carlton Bali than a guest house.

Love it!

This five room guest house is a real knockout: each of the differently appointed guest rooms features sea views and is lovingly furnished by owner, Joerg, who bends over backwards to make the guests' stay a truly enjoyable one.

Our super clean room had a king size bed with a very comfortable mattress, mini fridge, satellite TV, a luxury bathroom with tub and seperate shower (also with sea view) and a lovely balcony where you could sit and watch the spectacular sunsets. Fresh flowers on the pillows and in the bathroom were provided every day.

The sumptous breakfast, including Joerg's heavenly omlettes, is served at a communal table in a lounge with open fireplace or - weather permitting - outside on the terrace looking down on the very nice pool area and Camps Bay.

Location is perfect in a quiet residential area but nevertheless just minutes ago from lively downtown or busy Camps Bay seafront.

We would go back in a heartbeat!
