My boyfriend and I stayed there for two nights during the World Cup and we really enjoyed it. The location is great within walking distance to the stadium, restaurants, beach, and bars. We paid 5-star hotel prices since we were there for the WC and for that price it is not worth it unless there is a major event and all hotels are booked. If we ever go back to CPT, we will return as long as prices are back to normal.

Johan, Kees and Stefan are without any doubt the best hosts one can imagine! If you follow their particular and experienced recommendations for day trips or restaurants, you can´t get wrong. Getting into the house is getting in a very warm, friendly, special atmosphere. Breakfast on the terrace with wonderful views of the bay ist the perfect start into a perfect day in Cape Town! The rooms are simple furnished, not really stylish or luxurious, but cosy and clean. Best rooms are nos. 6 and 7 with private terrace onto the sea.

We stayed at Huijs Haerlem on our arrival in Cape Town for 3 nights. We enjoyed it so much that we booked for an additional night before our return to the UK.
Nothing was too much trouble - whether it was information on places of interest or good restaurants. Breakfast was a delight, taken around the pool, a green oasis, it was hard to imagine that you were so close to the centre of Cape Town but still in a residential area. A good choice at breakfast, everything freshly prepared and tastefully presented. We really did enjoy our stay, and will definitely return.

The views from two adjoining balconies were absolutely the best thing at Huijs Haerlem.
The decor, altho spotless, maybe a little dated but even so, still charming. Tho well placed for travelling in CPT, you would still need a car to access areas. This is a quiet residential area, in itself not a bad thing.
Garden well kept and well designed.
Hosts thoughtful enough to provide Chocolate eggs at breakfast as it was Easter Sunday!
Atmosphere genuinely friendly and helpful
