This is a beautiful guesthouse, interesting and tastefully decorate large bedrooms and communal area. The views from the balcony are absolutely stunning (even in the rain!) only downside was the 130+ steps up to it which was a bit of a killer with heavy bags. The breakfast was delicious and service charming.

Very nice guest house on a hill, yet easy to walk to restaurants and to the market. Rooms are nice, creatively decorated, with balconies and view. The guests are diverse travelers from around the world. Pleasant atmosphere. Drinks are available in fridge by honor system. Very nice breakfast. We had a very pleasant stay.

The Guesthouse is at the top of 131steps and both Andrew and Taryn are extremely friendly. Both of them are more than happy to advise and recommend activities and restaurants in the area. The view is spectacular and absorbing. The cost is reasonable by Cape Town standards and breakfast was more than sufficient.

Friendly clean and stunning view, fantastic guest house on the side of a mountain, the only catch is the 135 stairs to get there, but well worth the climb. The owners were friendly and helpful, the breakfast was yummy and the rooms were spacious and comfortable. I will certainly stay here again, highly recommended.

Great view from the room and balcony. Very spacious room. It is very central located, kind of like a "half way house" to where ever you want to go. Enjoyed the stay especially with my 2 young kids and will recommend it anytime... stairs and all.
