“A very enjoyable stay”
Reviewed October 17, 2011

Spent 5 very enjoyable days at HH. It is well located in a quiet area with a lovely view of the bay. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful in recommending restaurants and places to visit. The house and rooms are very comfortable and the gardens provide and ideal place to relax. There was a great choice for breakfast, which was enjoyed each morning beside the pool. If I return to Cape Town I will have no hesitation in staying again at HH.

My sister and I checked into Huijs Haerlem planning to stay a night or two, and we ended up staying a week. The house is charming, very comfortable, and conveniently located, and our hosts truly made us feel at home. Johan gave us excellent advice on restaurants and places to see throughout South Africa. The WiFi was reliable--something that's not always the case--and the breakfasts were spectacular!

We had two double rooms with a splendid view over the Bay, a very good choice for breakfast and a nice swimming pool . Very quiet location, but still close to the Waterfront and the city center of Cape Town.

The owners say "we want to be your home away from home". They are fully successful in doing so.
Lovely place in a wonderful location. Hosts who are truly hosts and do their best to let you feel at home. Ask them for tips an suggestions on things to do and see and places to eat. They're full of ideas!

Our room was woonderful, large, good bathroom, little terrace in the wonderful garden, stunning views over the ocean. Nice pool with even nicer views.

A delightful gem on "top of the world" in Sea Point, stunning views, exquiste elegance and taste, wonderful service and attention to detail; delightful staff. Delicious breakfasts outside in the lovely garden around the pool. I will return without a doubt.
