We loved every single thing, Barry and Chrissie are lovely hosts very friendly, welcoming, helpful nothing is to much trouble. Within a few hours we were sitting on their veranda with stunning views of Camps Bay drinking wine and chatting like old friends. The suites are first class very comfortable big beds, loads of storage and great showers. Beautifully decorated and very clean. There is a private outside sitting area and sun beds and a small pool. Breakfast is served in their kitchen and Barry or Chrissie will cook what ever you want plus fresh fruit, cereals, yogurt etc. It’s 5 minutes walk to a lovely beach and 10/15 mins walk into Camps Bay. The waterfront in Cape Town is a short drive or bus ride away. Barry and Chrissie can advise on trips, restaurants etc. We hope to return one day or maybe see Barry and Chrissie if the visit the UK.

Having visited last year and struck up a friendship with Barry and Chrissie we could not imagine staying anywhere else in Cape Town. Their hospitality is endless and extremely generous. As previously our room was just perfect and we were a five minute walk from two delightful beaches. What more could you ask for - oh and the breakfast is just divine and you are tempted into eating far more than you should just because you can. We will look forward to our next visit and sharing more adventures with our hosts!
Staying at this lovely B&B was more than we ever expected. It is in a neighbourhood within walking distance of Camps Bay. Very close to the beach. Very quiet. Gorgeous rooms with comfortable beds. Barry and Chrissy made us feel so welcome. They also gave us lots of tips and information on what to see and do. It really was like staying with family. Breakfast was a superb spread of delicious choices, eggs, breads,cheese plate, fruit salad, coffee, tea, whatever you wanted. It was very relaxed and we could come and go as we pleased and eat breakfast at the hour that suited us.
If I were to come back, and I hope to, this would be my #1 pick.
The beautifully furnished house is located about 2 min walking distance to the beach front where you can have the most amazing sundowners, should you ever get tired of sitting on the stunning terrace/balcony of the house.
The house itself if facing Lions Head which gives you a spectacular view as well.
Bedrooms are spacious and very nicely decorated. You can feel that the house is in fact a private home, not just a place to rent it out and make money.
Chrissie and Barry, the owners, are fantastic hosts. They make you feel home and being part of the family and can give you real insider tips on places to go and things to do in the area.
Overall an absolutely great experience, highly recommended to anybody is looking for a location to simply chill out as much as for people looking for a "Base Camp" to explore the beauty of the Cape region.
