A very comfortable cottage in beautiful surroundings, and an accommodating hostess who supplied us with excellent area info, made restaurant reservations on our behalf and served us delicious breakfasts on their patio. The consummate host! The 'Marseille' cottage was larger than we expected, with a lovely interior (perhaps too lux for us dusty trekkers, but all the more welcome) and...

We thoroughly enjoyed a one night stay at Cap Serein. We only wished we had several nights to fully enjoy our private little cottage! The grounds are amazingly beautiful, quite and peaceful. The room was very clean and well appointed for a longer stay. The main room even has a fireplace for those chilly nights! Although, our favorite part was...

Just to start with my conclusion: I will time and again return to Cap Serein whenever appropriate. Petra and Kurt are such lovely hosts. My Avignon room is spacious and immaculate. Breakfast is abundant, to the extent of me feeling obliged to put the break on: I would have overeaten, had I sampled all that was on offer. The top...

If you care to venture a little off the beaten track of Hout Bay, staying here for a few days will introduce you to what has to be one of the best and most affordable accommodations that Cape Town's Atlantic Sea Board has to offer.

Cap Serein, owned by Germans Kurt and Petra Schramm, has been the principal discovery of our (still ongoing) 2014 South African trip. We stayed in the Avignon apartment, and, boy, have we ever felt at home. Petra is the best host one could think of: friendly, with true interest for her guests and lots of attention for detail. Her husband,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
High on the mountain slopes overlooking the fishing port of Hout Bay, the only noise you’ll encounter here is chirping birds and the occasional splash from the koi ponds. Recently restored in the style of Provence, Cap Serein is about peace, quiet and exceptional cuisine. Each spacious suite and cottage at Cap Serein comes with a Satellite TV, tea/coffee facilities and a private patio. They either overlook the Atlantic, the mountains or the guest house’s gardens. Expect superb breakfasts in our sunroom, with cooked fare and a selection of home-baked pastries. You can also see Kurt’s dinner menu and decide if you’d like to stay in for the evening. We have options for everyone; ranging from three-course meals to a simple snack to end the day. After a dip in the pool, guest can relax on the sun terrace or enjoy a night in our jacuzzi.The shady garden is full of nooks and crannies, with plenty of corners where you can lose yourself in a good book or simply relax under Cape Town's sun. ... more   less
