We chose Cube Guest House for staying a night on our road trip from Cape town to Johannesburg in July 2014. Already upon booking we love the well organized website and the possibility to chose the perfect room thanks to many pictures and descriptions on the website. The communication already before the trip with the hosts was very good (which always gives us personally a good impression already up front).
The owerns Patrick and Dirk and their two lovely dogs are amazing hosts! You feel like visiting friends, and you feel taken care of perfectly. Dirk even recommended a perfect restaurant for our dinner and reserved a table (the best table in the restaurant as we found it later there :))) for us and it was really a wonderful experience and occasion to relax for us.
The place is located near the coast with views on the beautiful hills in Hout Bay. The guest house itself is a architectual masterpiece, very modern and interesting construction with a very nice common and breakfast area, pool land beautiful garden.
We chose the Comb View room, which is located in a from the common/main house separate building with private entrance and also a large terrace with grass on it and garden chairs so you have real private experience. Very luxurious and spacious bathroom with large tub, heating and air condition in the rooms, TV, apple TV, well stocked and absolutely amazingly reasonably priced minibar! The entire grounds are very safe due to alarm systems.
The breakfast is very plentiful, a selection of cheeses, meats, eggs/omlets, teas, coffee, bakery items, fruits, yoghurt, etc. all served by their friendly staff and Paul the cuddly and friendly Golden Retriver loves to cuddle with dog-lovers like us.
We didnt try the pool as it was simply too cold (we came in winter) but it looked very inviting. There is also a summer room near the pool (like a pool house) which looks quite interesting! (but recommended for summer!)
We would love to stay longer than just a day/night, so we planning this place for a longer rest-relaxing trip when we come back.
