We had credit problems and I could no longer use my debit card. Maarten helped me phone my banks in the U.S., took me to a bank, drove me to a place to exchange dollars and euros,and arranged to have cash-only events paid using a regular card. The guest house is extremely nice with comfortable rooms. Great breakfast. Friendly staff....

We were here 10 years ago just after the place started. Coming back was a good experience. The guest house is still a pleasant place, with nice rooms and friendly and helpful staff. The relatively small place gives cosy atmosphere, which is also represented in the well stoched honesty bar.

Maarten gave us a warm welcome and fully explained things to do, restaurants to visit and things to see. The guest house is about 10 minutes up hill from the sea front which was no problem for us but would be for the less mobile. We walked to V and A and back on consecutive days which was delightful.

Maarten's is a very nice and cosy B&B located in good and tranquil Fresnaye area, only at a 10-15 minutes walk from lively Sea Point with its shops, bars, restaurants and coffeebars. Maarten is a really good host and gives you plenty of tips about neighbourhood and city. The perfect place to start your Holiday in Cape-Town!

This place was a gem! Located in a quiet, safe neighborhood within walking distance from spectacular beaches and good restaurants, Maartens guesthouse was a pleasant surprise. Helpful and accommodating staff, clean rooms and a good breakfast made our days in the Mother City all we had hoped for. Highly recommended!

A good stay, clean and comfortable room. Enough space to sit down relax. Some criticism (to improve): For a longer stay, please give people some more choice or variations for breakfast. Everyone gets the same fruit every day. Let then choice if they want fruit (put a few bowls at the buffet), every bowl a other fruit. Some variety of...
