One of several guest houses jointly operated in this area of Cape Town. The breakfast was good and the bed comfortable. No amenities but reasonable security. Waking distance to several good eating establishments. There a small Pick/Pay shops in the area for groceries or beverages.,

The closed and curtain in the room should be removed and replaced by white coloured furniture. The room looked very dark and is outdated! Also, to have to pay for WIFI is very guest unfriendly, and should be available at no charge.

We arrive very late and they took care of us. The original property was full and they sent us to another property. The bedroom was very nice, with big bed and full bath. Next morning we had a fine breakfast and get to know Evelyn and Tatenda, a great couple that make us feel really good

Such a beautiful homely place to stay. Felt like we were living in Tuscany whilst having Sea Point just outside our back door. Staff were very friendly & made our stay comfortable. Breakfast at the communal breakfast table was delicious & fulling. However the serving of only a single piece of bacon with our eggs left us a little perplexed...

Nice room but no free wifi, you have to pay for the drinks in the room, a bit expensive for what you get. The breakfast was very nice! Very small pool, the pictures are misleading, but very nice staff!
