We stayed at the guest house for the very first time, looking for a guest house with easy access to the airport.  The guest house was great in other aspects as well! We had a lovely room, the pool area was great and around 7 in the morning the hospitable owner organized an excellent breakfast. Simply a great guest house!

Breakfast and maid service included in a real house, perfect comfort for a family with young children. The neighborhood is beautiful, surrounded by trees, 15min from the center of the town. Don't need to look for another place in Cape Town.
