The location of this guest house was absolutely fantastic. Situated close to Cape Town and some of the best restaurants in South Africa not to mention the wine estates. The guest house was well managed by Anna and the staff were very friendly. Everything was ideal, including the great breakfast.

Really a great experience....we had a lovely room, the breakfasts prepared by Franki were superb and with sufficient variety to keep us going all week. It is truly an oasis for a weary traveler, well placed and serene. I cannot believe people would rather stay in a hotel. The new management have wisely not made any changes - how can...
