The beach is a mere 5 minute walk away The place is managed by a husband and wife team and they offered us a homely feeling yet with alot of privacy. We stayed...

Great house in a quiet area. We were welcomed, the staff was lovely. Our house was spacious, the bedding very comfortable. Our car was in a closed garage. I would recommend this accomodation. We were delighted.

Katja made me feel at home as soon as I set foot in the yard. I got dressed for my wedding there and the service was excellent. I would recommend 5 options to anyone that is looking for value for their money. And as a bonus, the breakfast is amazing and Timothy the butler/ personal assistant is magnificent.

Stayed here for 4 nights at the start of our South African road trip and it was a wonderful relaxing base from which to explore the Cape Town area. Our room, 'beach vibe', had gorgeous decor, a huge comfy bed and a lovely roomy bathroom. Breakfast was divine with fresh fruit and yogurt, also a cooked breakfast of your choice....

The room was beautifully decorated and clean. The location is good. Very close to the beach. The host was friendly and helpful. The only thing was the breakfast option. Maybe include beef sausage as not everyone eats pork.
