Our family had a great stay at Sunset Residence. Marcello was friendly and also very helpful with information about sights and eating places. Our room was clean, comfortable and spacious for me and my husband and 18 year old son. Will definitely stay here again.

Superfriendly atmosphere, great service, 5 min walk to the beach with great views of the city (including Table Mountain) and also very close to an excellent MyCiti bus connection to Cape Town and neighbouring suburbs.

Stayed here for a few days and it was great. The location is right near the beach, accommodation is luxurious and great value for money. But what makes this place stand above all others is the outstanding customer service I received. We had an issue with our car rental (flat battery) and were due to pick up a different car... More

Sunset Residence is a great place. It's close by the beach, perfect for surfers and excellent for discovering Cape Town with a simultaneous peaceful accommodation just a bit outside of the city. It's very clean and the rooms are large with everything you need. Instead of the sea, you can also take a swim in the clean pool. The owner... More

It was great to be at Sunset Residence. Extra safe position, 10 minutes driving to down town, very relaxing and, above all, the host is great: if have not made up your mind of the Cape area, just follow his suggestion!!!! Really great value for your money.

“As I said above I loved the 2 bed 2 ensuite one better than the studio one. I couldnt see the others but they all modern lovely comfy white linen soft beds. So it will depend on yr budget and needs but overall you wont go wrong.”
