We totally loved our stay at Sun cottage! It was a home away from home. It's a beautiful setting and very conveniently located. The loft room was perfect for our needs and the hosts, Jean & Mike, were so friendly and hospitable. They made us feel very comfortable and even let us use their lovely garden when we needed to let our 20 month old son expend some toddler energy. We will definitely stay again at Sun Cottage next time we're back in the Mother City and will be recommending it to all our friends.

Stayed there for a week with the family and used both rooms. The cottage is comfortable, clean and well equipped. The owners live in the same house, though we hardly saw them. The rooms were cleaned daily, the beds were comfortable, the towels and bed linen were of good quality. There are basic cooking facilities which we did not use. This is a self catering cottage and no breakfast is offered. However, there are two good cafes serving excellent breakfast only a short walk away on the corner of Main Str and Kildare Rd. Melissa is a well known chain of deli shops and cafes but our preferred choice was Cassis, which offers a wide choice of pastries, cooked breakfast and muesli. There are also two or three decent restaurants there and the Vineyard Hotel nearby offers excellent lunches and dinners.

We visited Australia recently for a relative's wedding and needed a spot close to where family live. Staying at Sun Cottage was like being at home - cosy, peaceful and topped by a very beautiful, leafy location. We have two children who just loved all that nature offers in the beautiful, vast garden that stretches down to the water. Ziggy, Jean's dog, was an absolute hit, not to mention the squirrels. The girls had to share the small double which is always a challenge with our our daughter who wriggles a lot...I saw a previous review that mentioned the size of the bed too and my only suggestion would be to include a larger bed in this room, or two singles (that could be pushed together for couples). Other than that - my husband and I enjoyed the atmospheric loft room, and the magic of nature all around. Thanks for a lovely stay.

Room tip: Loft room has wonderful king size. Only a double in river room.

I had the pleasure of staying at Sun Cottage for 3 nights and will never stay anywhere else in Cape Town again. So convenient and everything was of the best quality. Jean was so helpful and informative and welcoming. Superb!

Sun Cottage was our first three nights accomodation on arriving in South Africa and Jean made us feel at home straight away. My 9 year old son and I stayed in the upstairs double room over looking the small river out the back. A well appointed comfortable room with beautiful bed linen, plenty of towels, lots of space and a small fully equipped kitchen. The location is perfect for exploring Cape Town and Jean was on hand to answer any question I had about where to go and what to see. Newlands is a pretty part of Cape Town, sleepy in it's quiet beauty and a perfect base.
