My husband and I had a wonderful weekend away at Wind Rose Guest House. Wind Rose Guest House was home away from home where we could truly relax, unwind and enjoy. Owners Carola and Peter were excellent hosts and made us feel very welcome from the minute we got there to the time we left. The pics you see on...

We stayed here for 5 nights and it's a proper, spacious B&B with a good breakfast and amazing sunsets views towards False Bay (and Cape Town/even Table Mountain), especially from 1st floor with great, friendly Dutch owners. It's a great "base camp" to visit Somerset, Strand (literally beach), Stellenbosch and/or Franschoek (Stellenbosch approx. 35min drive), or others, if you drive...

Don't know what to describe?! The elegant room with its space and qualitative furniture?, The beautiful garden and excellent facility of the house?, The breathe taken of the natural view? OR the spectacular friendly staff, who just give the feeling of home,... It is really a peaceful and great place for relaxing...

We were made to feel special from the word go. From a board welcoming us on arrival to an upgrade to a different suite because they were working on the one next door to the room we should have had. It was my husbands 50th birthday the Sunday and they really went out of their way to make him a...

My husband and our three children had a wonderful stay. Very relaxed and excellent for children who enjoyed the pool. Breakfast is excellent. The freedom and the trust they are giving the guest to just grab a beer or a glass of wine by making our own notes. The hosts were very helpful in respect of things to see or...

Although, upon arrival, the access road to this impressive guest house was winding and a bit off-putting, it paid to be patient because the setting of Wind-Rose Guest House under the glorious Hottentots mountain range is great. Sunsets are sublime. Carola and Peter are wonderful hosts who fully complement each other, most friendly and helpful to all of the guests....

An extra special retreat for couples and families. 5 star accommodation with super comfortable beds and the greatest attention to detail to ensure your stay is relaxing and easy. Scrumptious breakfasts. Hosts Peter and Carola are the most friendly, joyous and dedicated people. They are particularly superb at making you feel 100% at home. This is a place to unwind...

Perfectly positioned for fabulous sunsets towards False Bay and mountain backdrops. A peaceful and quiet sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of downtown but quick, easy access to Gordon's Bay, Strand and Somerset West areas. On arrival there is ample secure private parking for all guests. The property has been recently refurbished in all areas with large spacious bedroom...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled at the foot of the Hottentots Holland Mountain range, below Sir Lowry's pass, Wind-Rose Guest House and conference facility overlooks False Bay from Cape Point to Table Mountain in the distance. Located on 2 acres of indigenous gardens, we offer an escape from the hustle and bustle of City life, while still being close enough to enjoy all the best that the "Mother" City has to offer. The Guest House is centrally located in an area that offers restaurants, beaches, horseback riding, bird watching, hiking trails, deep sea fishing, water skiing, diving, whale watching and wine tasting. Our recreational room opens to an outside barbeque area where we can do a traditional South African braai (barbeque) while guests enjoy a refreshing drink of choice at our fully licensed bar or socialize with friends in our informal lounge area. For the fitness enthusiast we also have a fully equipped gym with treadmill, cross trainer, rowing machine, bicycle, weight machine etc. ... more   less
