Situated very centrally near good cafes, the beach and the bus line is this awesome rustic guesthouse. If you like awesome cooked breakfasts, fabulous rooms, a roaring fire and a beautiful patio this is the place to stay. Lovely knowledgable staff too! Only issue was wifi charges were higher than expected

The atmosphere in the guest house is like staying at a friends house or the house of a Family member. Kitchen and terrace can be used all time to relax. Vaina and Mobby are very friendly and helpful. Had a perfect time there.

Just finishing up a few days at Sweet Orange guesthouse in Cape Town. Most enjoyable - relaxed, clean, great location, spacious rooms and great price. Best part were the wonderful staff here- Mobby, Vaina, Bridget, Temba, Stan and Moses (sorry if I missed anyone). We will certainly consider staying again

So familiar ... Keep it up. And really the best breakfast you ever can have in Capetown, let me say in SA. We enjoyed very much. My conclusion is: If Capetown,... More
