We have kids who are too young to sleep in a separate hotel room and too old to share one with us. We are always on the lookout for self catering 2 bedroom accommodations that are typically difficult to find in cities. Mountain Magic was perfect! We felt right at home in this quiet residential neighborhood minutes away from anything...

We stayed at the Mountain Magic Suite, which is the biggest of three apartments they have at this location for four days and I think our choice had a huge influence on the great time we had in Cape Town. The apartment lies in a quiet residential area about 15 min walk from Kloef Nek Road. We were traveling with...

I've now tried all three of the suites at Mountain Magic and each has it's unique selling points. This time I stayed in the Bay Lights Studio. It's a little smaller than the other two studios, but if you're on you're on your own, the size is perfect and the view from the balcony onto the city bowl and the...

We liked to start and complete the day on the balcony with its fantastic view of the city and the sea. Within a few minutes we could reach the city centre and the sea or leave Capetown for a day trip to the fantastic and interesting sites around CT. And when we returned we loved to sit in the shade...

Thanks Swiss G for this: nice to know that we hit the right note for your stay in terms of being available to assist.

We travelled to Cape Town and there being so many places to choose from, we found Mountain Magic Garden Suites by accident. We stayed for a few nights and enjoyed every moment.

Hi JapieHopeTown - how wonderful to get such a complimentary review from a South African family: locals have a lot of choice over where they stay and they know just how high the standards of accommodation are in the country. It's very much appreciated to know that we got it right for you and your family. See you soon! Liz...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Mountain Magic Garden Suites are situated in a quiet residential area on a no-through road. Each suite is a large self-catering apartment and all have their own balcony or patio. We're very family friendly, as two suites have their own garden and all guests can use our large pool and the green field next door. We try to offer a private and relaxing base to explore Cape Town that gives families freedom but private guests privacy and space too. ... more   less
