The location really concerned me but it was no issue at all, but there is a Primary School behind the townhome and it is a bit noisy Monday to Friday from 7-15 to 8 am. This townhome has EVERYTHING from private remote door garage, laundry, gym, wall safe, great views, huge covered patio and spacious and well appointed. Loved it,...

We stayed just one night at the loft. It was fully booked, otherwise we would have stayed longer. Fantastic view and great service. We loved it. The breakfast is served in the beautiful garden, perfect! We really recommend this place! Mikael & Marie

I needed a couple of days' break from Cape Town and am a huge Kalk Bay fan, but didn't have luck with airbnb in the area. Chartfield was recommended to me by a friend who lives nearby and when I arrived I was immediately glad the other options hadn't worked out. I really cannot fault my experience there as breakfast...

Loved the apartment and the website is a perfect representation - it doesn't over or undersell the place. It's beautifully refurbished, has lovely views of the harbour and is close to all the main attractions. However, because it's right on the Main Road (which is quite noisy), it's a good idea to bring earplugs.

Located on the hillslope overlooking the ocean, the rooms are fresh and white, the garden is beautiful and the service and breakfast fabulous. We hope to come back to this lovely...

Chartfield Guest House is the best option where to stay if you want to spend few days in the nice Kalk Bay. To highlight the location, the friendly staff and the view from the terrace. Highly recommended.
